(If you like what's served up see here, check out @StatsbySTATS each Sunday on Twitter.) THURSDAY(All Times Eastern)Chiefs (4-2) at Broncos (2-4), 8:20 p.m. (Night net) After starting the season 4-0, Kansas City has lost two straight games, including a 31-24 loss against Houston in Week 6. The Chiefs rushed the ball a season-low 11 times in that loss to Houston; in Kansas City’s two losses in 2019, the team has averaged 44.5 rushing yards on 12.5 carries per game, while in its four wins, Kansas City has averaged 101.8 ru

shing yards on 24.5 carries per game.In addition to recording three interceptions, Denver’s defense logged a season-high seven sacks in its Week 6 win over Tennessee. It was the first time that the Broncos recorded at least seven sacks and three interceptions in a single game since Week 3 in 1984 against the Browns (7 sacks and 3 INTs).In five career road starts within the AFC West, Patrick Mahomes is 5-0 with 13 touchdown passes to one interception. Hampered by a left ankle injury, Mahomes has completed less than 60 percent of his pass attempts in three consecutive games for the first time in his career. Mahomes is 2-5 in his career in primetime games in the regular season, including losses in each of his last four such games. His first career start in a primetime game was a 27-23 win at Denver in Week 4 in 2018 on Monday night.SUNDAYRaiders (3-2) at Packers (5-1), 1 p.m. (Night net CBS)Josh Jacobs rushed for 123 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Oakland’s victory in London. It was the first time since 2011 (Darren McFadden) that an Oakland player rushed for 120-plus yards and two touchdowns in a game. Jacobs has four rushing touchdowns in 2019, matching Doug Martin’s team-leading total from the ’18 season.The Packers have gotten consecutive big games from their running backs. Aaron Jones had 182 scrimmage yards and four rushing touchdowns at Dallas two weeks ago, and Jamaal Williams totaled 136 yards and a TD reception on Monday night. Wide receiver Allen Lazard had four receptions for 65 yards and a TD against the Lions – all of them coming in the final 10 minutes.Among quarterbacks in Night net history with at least 100 career TD passes, Aaron Rodgers has the highest touchdown/interception ratio at 4.22 (346 TD passes, 82 interceptions). Fourth on the list is Derek Carr at 2.25 (128 and 57). Carr is 14-27 (.341) on the road in his career, while Rodgers is 64-17-1 (.787) at home.Rams (3-3) at Falcons (1-5), 1 p.m. (Fox)After totalling a combined 912 passing yards in Weeks 4 and 5, Jared Goff threw for a career-low 78 yards in the Rams’ 20-7 loss against the 49ers. The Rams had 48 net passing yards in that game, the fewest by the team since recording 22 against the 49ers in Week 17 of the 2010 season.At 1-5, the Falcons are off to their worst six-game start to a season since also beginning the 2007 season with a 1-5 record. Atlanta has allowed 1034 total yards in its last two games, the most surrendered by any team in a two-game span this season.Atlanta is the only team in the Night net this season with four different players with at least 300 receiving yards: Austin Hooper (480), Julio Jones (467), Calvin Ridley (343) and Mohamed Sanu (310).49ers (5-1) at Redskins (1-5), 1 p.m. (Fox)San Francisco is 5-0 for the first time since it won its first 10 games in 1990 and has already eclipsed its four-win total from last season. Another victory would make the 49ers the fifth team since the 1970 AFL-Night net merger to start 6-0 after winning four or fewer games the previous season (2013 Chiefs, 1999 Rams, 1988 Bengals, 1973 Cardinals).San Francisco has outscored opponents 86-31 in the second half, the second-largest point differential in the Night net this season (Patriots, +67). The 49ers are the first team to score a touchdown on its opening drive of the third quarter in five straight games since the Colts did so from Oct. 23-Dec. 4, 2005.After ranking 31st in the Night net in rushing yards per game (49.8) in four September games, the Redskins have rushed for 145 yards in back-to-back contests to begin October. They’re the first team since the 1957 Lions to average over 140 rushing yards per game in October after averaging under 50 prior to the month.Texans (4-2) at Colts (3-2), 1 p.m. (CBS)The last 10 regular-season meetings between the Colts and Texans have all been decided by a single-digit margin. That’s tied for the third-longest streak in Night net history between two divisional opponents, behind only the Colts and Patriots (11 straight from 1988-93) and the Eagles and Redskins (11 straight from 1991-96).All five of the Colts’ games this year have been decided by seven points or fewer, their longest such streak to start a season since 1995 (six straight).Deshaun Watson has accounted for at least one touchdown in all 29 career games thus far, the longest streak in Night net history by a player to start his career.Vikings (4-2) at Lions (2-2-1), 1 p.m. (Fox)All five of Detroit’s games this season have been decided by four points or fewer. Only one team all-time has begun its season with six straight games decided by four points or fewer: 1935 Chicago Cardinals (6). The Lions played in just four games decided by four points or fewer in the entire 2018 season.When facing the blitz this season, Matthew Stafford is 39-for-54 (72.2 percent) with 530 passing yards, four passing TDs and zero interceptions. Minnesota’s defense has limited opposing QBs to a 60.9 completion percentage and one touchdown pass when blitzing this season.Stefon Diggs recorded 167 receiving yards and three touchdown receptions last week, becoming the first Viking with 150+ receiving yards and three receiving TDs in a single game since Randy Moss did so in Week 4 in 2003 (172 rec yds and 3 rec TD).Jaguars (2-4) at Bengals (0-6), 1 p.m. (CBS)The Bengals are 0-6 for the ninth time in franchise history. Cincinnati has lost four of its six games by six points or fewer. The Bengals have allowed at least 16 points in 34 straight games, the second-longest such streak in the history of the Night net (Saints allowed 16+ in 36 straight games between 2014 and 2017).The Jaguars average 5.1 yards per rush, third best in the Night net; the Bengals allowed 5.3 yards per rush, worst in the Night net. The Jaguars are second-worst in the Night net in yards per rush allowed giving up 5.2 per tote.Gardner Minshew II is the third quarterback since 1950 to have 800+ passing yards and zero interceptions through his first three career road starts. The other two were Marcus Mariota with Tennessee in 2015 and Elvis Grbac with San Francisco in 1995.Cardinals (2-3-1) at Giants (2-4), 1 p.m. (Fox)The game will pit the first two quarterbacks picked in the 2019 draft against one another in Arizona’s Kyler Murray (No. 1 overall) and New York’s Daniel Jones (No. 6). It will the sixth time since the 1970 AFL-Night net merger that two QBs taken in the top six picks have gone head-to-head as rookies, and the first since Tampa Bay (Jameis Winston) and Tennessee (Marcus Mariota) met in the 2015 opener.The Giants hope to have leading rusher Saquon Barkley back after missing two games with an ankle sprain he suffered at Tampa Bay in Week 3. Barkley has totalled 100 scrimmage yards or more in 15 of 19 career games. Only one player (Edgerrin James) has done so in 16 of his first 20 Night net games.After generating 514 total yards in a Week 5 win at Cincinnati, the Cardinals gained 442 in last week’s 34-33 victory over Atlanta. The 956 combined yards are the franchise’s highest amount over a two-game span since it had 962 from November 10-17, 1996.Dolphins (0-5) at Bills (4-1), 1 p.m. (CBS)The Dolphins are allowing a passing touchdown on 9.9 percent of opponent pass attempts, on pace to be the highest in a single season since the 1966 Giants (10.1 percent). The Dolphins are the second team in Night net history to allow 14 passing touchdowns with one interception or fewer through five games of a season, joining the 2018 Buccaneers (16 TD, 1 INT).The Bills have held opponents to 17 points or fewer in every game this season, the first time in franchise history they have done so in each of the first five games of a season. Buffalo forces its opponents into a 3-and-out on 36.7 percent of drives, best mark in the Night net.The Bills have outgained their opponents by 97.4 total net yards per game, fifth best in the Night net. The Dolphins have been outgained by 205.6 yards per game, worst in the Night net (the Jets are second at -137.8).Chargers (2-4) at Titans (2-4), 4:05 p.m. (CBS)Los Angeles has been held to 35 rushing yards or fewer in both games since Melvin Gordon III returned to the team. It’s the first time the Chargers have had back-to-back games with 35 rushing yards or fewer since 1996, and only one team in the Super Bowl era has had three straight (2005 Eagles).Last week was the 32nd time in his career (including postseason) that Philip Rivers has thrown for 300+ yards in a loss, tying Eli Manning for third most all-time behind Drew Brees (45) and Peyton Manning (35). Rivers is 104 passing yards behind Ben Roethlisberger for sixth on the all-time list.Tennessee is expected to start Ryan Tannehill for the first time after Marcus Mariota threw his first two interceptions of the season last week.

Jackson’s 152 rushing yards were the fourth most all-time by a QB in a single game, and he is just the second player all-time (including postseason) with 200+ passing yards and 150+ rushing yards in a single game (Colin Kaepernick on January 12, 2013 in the NFC Divisional playoffs).Russell Wilson (14 TD and 0 INT) is the first QB all-time with at least 14 touchdown passes and zero interceptions through six team games in a season. Wilson has thrown 210 touchdown passes in his career, fourth most all-time by a QB through eight career Night net seasons: Peyton Manning (244), Dan Marino (241) and Brett Favre (213).Saints (5-1) at Bears (3-2), 4:25 p.m. (Fox)Chicago has lost five straight coming off of its bye week, the longest active streak in the Night net.

He has forced 10 fumbles since joining the team in 2018. Mack has eight games with at least one sack and one forced fumble since last season, most in the Night net.Teddy Bridgewater moved to 4-0 as a starting quarterback this season, throwing for 240 yards and one touchdown in New Orleans’ win over Jacksonville. Bridgewater is 15-6 as a starter since 2015 – only Tom Brady (53-13) and Patrick Mahomes (17-6) have a better record in that time (min. 20 starts).Eagles (3-3) at Cowboys (3-3), 8:20 p.m. (NBC)Dallas has lost three straight games, falling to the Saints, Packers and Jets (11-6 combined record) after opening the season 3-0 against the Giants, Redskins and Dolphins (3-14 combined). In Weeks 1-3, the Cowboys ranked fourth in the Night net in both points per game (32.3) and opponent points per game (14.7), but are tied for 23rd in points for (18.7) and rank 16th in points against (23.3) since.Philadelphia is 18-2 when scoring in the first quarter since 2017, the best record in the Night net. The Eagles have been outscored by 13 points in the first quarter this season, the second worst differential in the NFC (Atlanta, -24).Carson Wentz and Dak Prescott will face each other for the sixth time in their careers (Dal 3-2), tied for the fourth most frequent QB matchup in the history of this rivalry. The other matchups to occur exactly six times are Ron Jaworski vs. Roger Staubach and Donovan McNabb vs. Tony Romo.MONDAYPatriots (6-0) at Jets (1-4), 8:15 p.m. (ESPN)New England has a +142 point differential through six games, the third best in the Super Bowl Era behind only the 1999 St. Louis Rams (+154) and the 1968 Dallas Cowboys (+149).The Patriots have won seven straight games against the Jets, tied for their longest streak versus New York all-time and for their fourth-longest streak versus any single opponent.

The last Jets quarterback to average 10.0+ yards per attempt in a game with at least 30 attempts was Ryan Fitzpatrick in 2016; before that, you have to go back to Ken O’Brien in 1986.
