For the first time since 2009 (and only the second time since NFL commissioner Roger Goodell started his job), no active players were arrested in a 30-day period. It’s also the first time in 15 years that the NFL went a calendar month without an arrest during the season, which comes a year after a flareup in the NFL’s ongoing domestic-violence problem and the embarrassing Deflategate saga.

While Kimmel isn’t sure whether this is truly something to celebrate, he made a promo for them anyway. The NFL might as well enjoy it now—they don’t know when they’ll be able to do so again.
