The NFL’s extra game has put lots of single-season records on the line in Week 18, including receiving yards, receptions, sacks and passing completions. Throw in a host of rookie records and we’ve got some interesting situations.

Betting player props based on incentives and records has been a popular angle for a while, but the additional game makes it even higher stakes.

We’re tracking every key result, and we already have some controversy in the early window.

Steelers LB TJ Watt appeared to break the single-season sack record, but what looked like a sack was ruled a tackle for loss. The statistician likely ruled the play was aborted by Ravens QB Tyler Huntley, who dropped the snap and was sacked.

The NFL can review it after the game and determine whether or not it was a sack.

TJ Watt ended the season with 22.5 sacks, tying Michael Strahan for the single-season record.
