He became the first player with 100+ rush yards and a rush TD in an NFL debut since NY Giants RB Saquon Barkley in Week 1 of 2018 vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars. Edwards-Helaire's 138 yards rushing are eighth-best in an NFL debut in the Super Bowl era.

It marked the eighth time in franchise history that a rookie RB rushed for more than 150 yards in a game and he became the seventh different rookie RB to accomplish the feat.
