2017 Green Bay Packers season

The 2017 Green Bay Packers season was their 99th season overall, 97th season in the National Football League, and the 12th under head coach Mike McCarthy. After reaching the NFC Championship Game in the previous season, the Packers failed to improve a 10–6 record from 2016 and were eliminated from postseason contention after Week 15, making this the first time since 2008 that they failed to make the playoffs. After a 4-1 start, the Packers lost starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers to a collarbone injury during the week 6 game against the Minnesota Vikings, and went on to lose 8 of the 11 remaining games. A loss to the Lions in week 17 secured the Packers’ first losing season since 2008.

The Packers' opponents in this season were almost identical to that of their 2005 season in which the team finished 4-12; this season the Packers faced the Seattle Seahawks, and teams from the NFC South & AFC North. The lone difference between these two seasons was that the team faced the Dallas Cowboys, replacing the Philadelphia Eagles, as the Cowboys won the NFC East in 2016.

BYU Cougars football statistical leaders

The BYU Cougars football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the BYU Cougars football program in various categories, including passing, rushing, receiving, total offense, defensive stats, and kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, single-season, and career leaders. The Cougars represent Brigham Young University as an independent in NCAA Division I FBS.

Although BYU began competing in intercollegiate football in 1922, these lists are dominated by more recent players for several reasons:

Since 1922, seasons have increased from 6 games to 11 and then 12 games in length.

The NCAA didn't allow freshmen to play varsity football until 1972 (with the exception of the World War II years), allowing players to have four-year careers.

Bowl games only began counting toward single-season and career statistics in 2002. The Cougars have played in 13 bowl games since then, allowing many recent players an extra game to accumulate statistics.

Similarly, the Cougars have played games at Hawaii 16 times since 1978. When a team plays at Hawaii, they are allowed to schedule another game beyond the usual limit.These lists are updated through the end of the 2018 season.

Eldon Fortie

Eldon Fortie (born 1941) was a college football player at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. Dubbed "The Phantom" while at BYU, he was the first BYU football player to be named to a first-team All-America squad.During his senior season, Fortie led the nation in total offense for eight weeks, and at the end of the season finished second behind Terry Baker with 1,963 total yards and 14 touchdowns. On September 29, 1962, Fortie ran for 272 yards in a single game in Provo against the George Washington University Colonials. That was the single best running game of any BYU player in school history, until 2016, when Jamaal Williams rushed for 286 yards against Toledo. Fortie's No. 40 was retired after that season, the first BYU student to have that honor. In 1962, he ran for 1,149 yards and 14 TDs but more impressively also threw for 814 yards with 7 TDs. He finished 10th in the Heisman Voting.

Although Fortie was a quarterback, BYU ran the single wing offense at the time; consequently, Fortie was primarily a running back. He was selected to play in several all-star games after the 1962 season, including the North-South Bowl in Miami, the Hula Bowl, the All-American Game in Tucson, and the Coaches All-American Bowl.

After graduation Fortie played one year in the Canadian Football League with the Edmonton Eskimos.
