SAFETY FIRSTS

Arizona QB John Skelton, starting in place of Arizona’s Kevin Kolb, gave up safeties on consecutive plays in the third quarter. It was the first time a player yielded two safeties in a quarter since Aaron Rodgers did it against Minnesota on Nov. 9, 2008. The last player to have safeties on consecutive plays was Kordell Stewart of Pittsburgh against Jacksonville on Oct. 3, 1999. The safeties marked the first time in NFL history a team had scored a total of four points in a quarter.

STILL AT A LOSS

Miami’s win at Kansas City left the Colts (0-9) as the only team in the NFL without a victory. They have lost five straight home games for the first time since 2001. Indy has been outscored 75-14 in the first half and 120-24 over the past three weeks.
