11 — Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen has at least half a sack in 11 consecutive games, a Vikings record. In his 10-year career, Allen has gotten to the quarterback 118 times. And the Browns are one of only four teams he hasn’t had a sack against, joining the New Orleans Saints, Pittsburgh Steelers and Seattle Seahawks.
14 & 203 — Browns tight end Jordan Cameron is tied for the league lead for receptions by a tight end with 14, along with Jimmy Graham of the Saints. Cameron’s 203 receiving yards also only second in the NFL to Graham’s 224.
19 — As the Browns have rotated offensive linemen in and out of the lineup the past two seasons, the Vikings have started the same five offensive linemen (left tackle Matt Kalil, left guard Charlie Johnson, center John Sullivan, right guard Brandon Fusco, right tackle Phil Loadholt) in 19 consecutive games, including the playoffs. These are the same five players who blocked for Peterson in his Most Valuable Player season last year.
8 — Through the first two games of the season, the Vikings have been one of the cleanest teams in the league, committing just eight penalties, second fewest in the NFL. Last week, the Vikings were called for only three penalties in their 31-30 loss to the Chicago Bears.
26 — The Vikings have had the second-best starting field position after kickoffs in the NFL this season with an average of the 26.3-yard line. Only the Chicago Bears (33.8) have been better. Explosive rookie Cordarrelle Patterson also returned the opening kickoff 105 yards last week for a touchdown.
