Some things to look out for today:
Calvin Johnson attempting to break 2000 receiving yards in a season
J.J. Watts and Aldon Smith attempting to break Michael Strahans single-season sack record (record is 22.5, they're at 20.5 and 19.5 respectively)
and Adrian Peterson trying to surpass Eric Dickerson's 2105 rushing record, which he is currently 208 yards shy of breaking.
Should be interesting indeed.
Along with the sack records from before 1982, it was said that Strahan had at least couple of sacks in 2001 that wasn't credited.
It happened in one of the Eagles game and the Rams game where he was claimed that the QBs were running for it and it was questionable on whether it was the case. If it's true, that would mean Strahan should have 23.5 sacks without Favre's infamous dive.
But then again, knowing Favre I wouldn't put it past him to do it anyway to run it up to 24.5. People wouldn't think much of it until about a decade or so when someone falls short at 24 and with a help from the hit Favre's repuation had taken for the last few years from his "retirements", you can imagine what would happen afterward.
