Adicionalmente, el diferencial de puntos de New England (+175) es el segundo más alto en este punto de una temporada en la historia de la NFL, solamente detrás de los Buffalo All-Americans de 1920 (+218). Con una victoria el domingo, New England puede continuar su ritmo histórico en diferencial de puntos y saltar hacia los cinco mejores en la historia de la NFL a lo largo de sus primeros ocho juegos.

LA BARRERA DE LOS MINEROS. Los SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS llegan a la octava semana como el único equipo invicto (6-0) de la NFC. La defensiva de San Francisco permitió 223.5 yardas totales netas por partido –más de 100 yardas menos por juego que cualquier otro equipo de la NFC (Dallas, 324.9)– y limitó a sus oponentes a menos de 200 yardas totales netas de ofensiva en cada uno de los últimos tres partidos.  
Con menos que 200 yardas totales netas permitidas el domingo contra Carolina (4:05 PM, hora de New York, FOX), San Francisco se convertiría en el sexto equipo que permite menos de 200 yardas totales netas de ofensiva en al menos cuatro juegos consecutivos desde 1970. Tres de los anteriores cinco equipos en hacerlo terminaron ganando el Super Bowl.

#Ganó el Super Bowl
Para continuar su racha de juegos permitiendo menos que 200 yardas totales netas de ofensiva el domingo, San Francisco necesitará limitar al corredor de Carolina CHRISTIAN McCAFFREY, que anotó acarreando y también tuvo una recepción anotadora en cada uno de sus últimos dos partidos. Con alguna anotación terrestre y alguna recepción anotadora el domingo, McCaffree igualaría a PETE JOHNSON (tres partidos consecutivos en 1981 con Cincinnati) para la racha más larga de juegos con al menos un anotación acarreando y una recepción anotadora en la historia de la NFL
-- NFL --
CAPITÁN KIRKA lo largo de las últimas tres semanas, el mariscal de campo de Minnesota KIRK COUSINS lidera la NFL en pases anotadores (10) y en índice de pasador (142.6). En la séptima semana, Cousins se convirtió en el primer mariscal de campo en la historia de la NFL en tener al menos 300 yardas aéreas y un índice de pasador de 135 o más alto en tres partidos consecutivos.  
En el clásico de Fútbol Americano de jueves por la noche contra Washington (8:20 PM, hora de New York, FOX/NFLN/Amazon), Cousins puede convertirse en el tercer jugador con índice de pasador de 130 o más alto en cuatro partidos consecutivos en la historia de la NFL

WHAT TO LOOK FOR – WEEK 8
DOMINANT DEFENSE: Entering Week 8, the undefeated NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (7-0) lead the league in both points for per game (31.9) and points against per game (6.9).
Against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday (4:25 PM ET, CBS), the Patriots can become the first team to average more than 30 points per game and allow fewer than 10 points per game through eight games of a season since the 1962 GREEN BAY PACKERS.
Additionally, New England’s point differential (+175) is the second-highest at this point of a season in NFL history, trailing only the 1920 Buffalo All-Americans (+218). With a win on Sunday, New England can continue its historic point differential pace and jump into the top five in NFL history through their first eight games.

MINING THEIR BUSINESS: The SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS enter Week 8 as the lone undefeated team (6-0) in the NFC. San Francisco’s defense has allowed 223.5 total net yards per game – more than 100 fewer yards per game than any other team in the NFC (Dallas, 324.9) – and has limited their opponents to fewer than 200 total net yards of offense in each of the past three games. 
With fewer than 200 total net yards allowed on Sunday against Carolina (4:05 PM ET, FOX), San Francisco would become the sixth team to allow fewer than 200 total net yards of offense in at least four consecutive games since 1970. Three of the previous five teams to do so went on to win the Super Bowl.

To continue its streak of games allowing fewer than 200 total net yards of offense on Sunday, San Francisco will need to limit Carolina running back CHRISTIAN McCAFFREY, who has scored both a rushing and a receiving touchdown in each of his past two games. With both a rushing and receiving touchdown on Sunday, McCaffrey would tie PETE JOHNSON (three consecutive games in 1981 with Cincinnati) for the longest streak of games with at least one rushing and one receiving touchdown in NFL history.
-- NFL --
CAPTAIN KIRKOver the past three weeks, Minnesota quarterback KIRK COUSINS leads the NFL in touchdown passes (10) and passer rating (142.6). In Week 7, Cousins became the first quarterback in NFL history to have at least 300 passing yards and a passer rating of 135 or higher in three consecutive games.  
On Thursday Night Football against Washington (8:20 PM ET, FOX/NFLN/Amazon), Cousins can become the third player with a passer rating of 130 or higher in four consecutive games in NFL history.

Notas de la NFL de la octava semana
MARISCALES DE CAMPO JÓVENES Y NOVATOS ESTÁN DEJANDO SU HUELLA AL LLEGAR A LA OCTAVA SEMANA
Para ayudar a celebrar la 100ª temporada de la NFL, cada semana tendrá un Partido de la semana NFL100. Cada juego será un guiño a enfrentamientos trascendentales disputados en la historia, una rivalidad feroz cimentada durante décadas, un duelo de equipos originales y/o un juego en el que quedó en los anales. La NFL designó el duelo del domingo por la noche GREEN BAY PACKERS-KANSAS CITY CHIEFS  (8:20 PM, hora de New York, NBC) como el Partido de la Semana NFL100 porque conmemora a los equipos que protagonizaron el primer Juego de Campeonato del Mundo AFL-NFL, más tarde denominado el Super Bowl gracias a una sugerencia hecha por el fallecido LAMAR HUNT, dueño de los Chiefs y cofundador de la AFL. El 15 de enero de 1967, en el Memorial Coliseum de Los Angeles, los Packers se fueron al descanso con una ventaja de 14-10 antes de finiquitar definitivamente el duelo en la segunda mitad. MAX McGEE se hizo de siete lanzamientos para 138 yardas y dos anotaciones en su camino a un triunfo 35-10 sobre los Chiefs campeones de la AFL. Dos cadenas, CBS y NBC, televisaron el partidos, que curiosamente no tuvo un lleno total en el estadio, quedando boletos sin vender.
MARISCALES DE CAMPO JÓVENES ILUMINAN EL CAMINO DE LA NFL. Una de las historias más remarcables de la 100ª temporada de la NFL es la aparición en la liga de mariscales de campo jóvenes, y la cantidad de victorias que ese grupo generó. Dicho esto, 87 de los 106 partidos (el 82.1 por ciento) tuvo al menos un mariscal de campo titular de una edad de 26 o más joven, la mayor cantidad de cualquier temporada en la historia a lo largo de la séptima semana. Los mariscales de campo de una edad de a lo sumo 26 ganaron 63 de sus 116 titularidades (el 54.3 por ciento), 14 victorias más que cualquier temporada anterior en los anales de la liga a lo largo de siete semanas.
Un vistazo a algunos de los mariscales de campo titulares de una edad de 26 o más joven esta temporada:
  • El mariscal de campo de Carolina KYLE ALLEN, 23, está 4-0 como titular en 2019. También es el primer mariscal de campo en la era del Super Bowl que arranca su carrera 5-0 sin haber lanzado intercepción alguna en sus primeras cinco titularidades de una carrera.
  • El mariscal de campo de New Orleans TEDDY BRIDGEWATER, 26, está 5-0 como titular en 2019, con 1,370 yardas por aire y nueve anotaciones, para un índice de 98.9.
  • El mariscal de campo de Indianapolis JACOBY BRISSETT, 26, lideró a los Colts a una marca de 4-2 y lanzó al menos dos anotaciones en cinco de sus seis titularidades.
  • El mariscal de campo de Baltimore LAMAR JACKSON, 23, es el tercero en la historia de la NFL con al menos tres partidos con 100 yardas por tierra en una sola temporada. Es también uno de los tres mariscales de campo con cinco pases anotadores en un mismo juego en 2019.
  • El mariscal de campo de Dallas DAK PRESCOTT, 26, estuvo al frente de la mejor ofensiva de la NFL (437.9 yardas por partido) con 12 pases anotadores y tres acarreos anotadores. Es uno de los cuatro mariscales de campo que promedian al menos 300 yardas aéreas por partido en 2019. 
  • El mariscal de campo de Houston DESHAUN WATSON, 24, tiene 1,952 yardas aéreas, 15 pases anotadores y tres acarreos anotadores en 2019.

    NOVATOS COMPITIENDO EN LOS MÁS ALTOS NIVELES. Los JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS, que el domingo reciben a los New York Jets (1:00 PM, hora de New York, CBS) son el primer equipo en la historia de la NFL en tener a un novato (GARDNER MINSHEW) con índice de pasador de 95 o más alto (mínimo de 100 intentos) y a otro novato (JOSH ALLEN) con cinco o más capturas a lo largo de sus primeros siete partidos. 

    Minshew lidera a los novatos de la NFL tanto en índice de pasador (95.7) como en pases anotadores (10). Es apenas la segunda vez en la historia de la NFL en la que un mariscal de campo novato compiló un índice de pasador de 95 o mejor y 10 o más pases anotadores a lo largo de siete semanas (el de Houston DESHAUN WATSON tuvo un índice de 103 y 19 anotaciones a lo largo de siete juegos en 2017).

    En realidad, los novatos son absolutos protagonistas del panorama de la NFL mientras la temporada se acerca a su punto medio. La 100ª temporada es la único campaña en la historia de la NFL en la que un novato, a lo largo de siete semanas de juego:
  • Tiene un índice de pasador de 95 o mejor (GARDNER MINSHEW, Jacksonville, 95.7),
  • Tiene 10 o más pases anotadores (GARDNER MINSHEW, Jacksonville, 10),
  • Tiene al menos 550 yardas por tierra (JOSH JACOBS, Oakland, 554),
  • Tiene al menos 400 yardas recibiendo (TERRY McLAURIN, Washington, 419),
  • Tiene cinco o más anotaciones totales (TERRY McLAURIN, Washington, cinco),
  • Tiene al menos dos intercepciones (DEVIN BUSH, Pittsburgh, y RYAN CONNELLY, N.Y. Giants, cada con dos)    – Y – 
  • Tiene al menos cinco capturas (JOSH ALLEN, Jacksonville, cinco). 

    PARTIDOS DE HASTA UN PUNTO. Esta semana pasada, los resultados de ocho partidos estuvieron dentro de una anotación (ocho puntos o menos) en algún punto del último período. A lo largo de siete semanas, en 69 de los 106 juegos (el 65.1 por ciento) se vio a un equipo estar dentro de una posesión de empatar o de tomar el liderazgo en el último período. Solamente tres temporada anteriores tuvieron más partidos definidos por un punto a lo largo de la séptima semana desde la fusión de 1970. Y, apenas tres otras temporadas tuvieron más juegos decididos por siete o menos puntos en la historia de la NFL.

    Las temporadas con las mayores cantidades de partidos decididos por uno y siete o menos puntos a lo largo de siete semanas:
PARTIDOS DECIDIDOS POR UNO O MENOS PUNTOS, A LO LARGO DE LA SÉPTIMA SEMANA, DESDE 1970

Entrenadores activos en negrillas; en el periodo 1920-71, los partidos empatados no se incluían en el porcentaje de triunfos.
Belichick se encuentra con los CLEVELAND BROWNS, donde cumplió funciones de entrenador en jefe en el lapso 1991-95. Irónicamente, su mejor temporada en Cleveland fue 1994, cuando guió a los Browns a un registro de 11-5 y a un triunfo en le Vuelta de Comodines sobre el miembro del Salón de la Fama BILL PARCELLS y sus Patriots. Durante su estadía con Cleveland, el cuerpo de entrenadores y la oficina central de los Browns de Belichick tuvo a varias de las mentes más talentosas de la NFL.
Un vistazo más detallado a ejecutivos y entrenadores asistentes notables de los Cleveland Browns durante la era Bill Belichick:

Los únicos otros clubes con diferencial de puntos de al menos 163 a lo largo de siete partidos fueron los CHICAGO BEARS de 1941 (+173) y los BUFFALO ALL-AMERICANS de 1921 (+163).

Week 8 NFL Preview
​​YOUNG QBs, ROOKIES MAKING HEADLINES ENTERING WEEK 8
To help celebrate the NFL’s 100th season, each week will feature an NFL 100 Game of the Week. Each game is a nod to a momentous game played, a fierce rivalry that spans decades, a matchup of original teams and/or a game in which history was made . The NFL has designated Sunday night’s GREEN BAY PACKERS-KANSAS CITY CHIEFS matchup (8:20 PM ET, NBC) as the NFL100 Game of the Week because the contest commemorates the teams that played in the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game, later called the Super Bowl thanks to a suggestion made by the late LAMAR HUNT, owner of the Chiefs and co-founder of the AFL. On January 15, 1967, at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the Packers clung to a 14-10 halftime lead before breaking open the contest in the second half. MAX McGEE caught seven passes for 138 yards and two touchdowns en route to a 35-10 win over the AFL champion Chiefs. Two networks, CBS and NBC, televised the game, which was not sold out.

YOUNG QUARTERBACKS ILLUMINATING NFL’S PATH: One of the more remarkable storylines of the NFL’s 100th season is the league’s sterling crop of young quarterbacks, and the amount of wins that group has generated. All told, 87 of 106 games (82.1 percent) have featured at least one starting quarterback age 26 or younger, more than any season ever through Week 7. Quarterbacks age 26 or younger have won 63 of their 116 starts (54.3 percent), 14 more wins than any prior season in league annals through seven weeks.
 A look at some of the starting quarterbacks age 26 or younger this season:
  • Carolina quarterback KYLE ALLEN, 23, is 4-0 as a starter in 2019. He also is the first quarterback in the Super Bowl era to begin his career 5-0 without throwing an interception in his first five career starts.
  • New Orleans quarterback TEDDY BRIDGEWATER, 26, is 5-0 as a starter in 2019 with 1,370 pass yards and nine touchdowns for a 98.9 rating.
  • Indianapolis quarterback JACOBY BRISSETT, 26, has led the Colts to a 4-2 record and has thrown at least two touchdowns in five of his six starts.
  • Baltimore quarterback LAMAR JACKSON, 23, is the third quarterback in NFL history with at least three games of 100 rushing yards in a single season. He is also one of three quarterbacks with five touchdown passes in a single game in 2019.
  • Dallas quarterback DAK PRESCOTT, 26, has paced the NFL’s top-ranked offense (437.9 yards per game) with 12 touchdown passes and three rushing touchdowns. He is one of four quarterbacks to average at least 300 passing yards per game in 2019.
  • Houston quarterback DESHAUN WATSON, 24, has 1,952 passing yards, 15 touchdown passes and three rushing touchdowns in 2019.

ROOKIES COMPETING AT HIGHEST LEVELS: The JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS, who host the New York Jets on Sunday (1:00 PM ET, CBS) are the first team in NFL history to have a rookie (GARDNER MINSHEW) with a passer rating of 95 or higher (minimum 100 attempts) and a rookie (JOSH ALLEN) with five-or-more sacks through their first seven games.
Minshew leads NFL rookies in both passer rating (95.7) and touchdown passes (10). It’s only the second time in NFL history in which a rookie quarterback has compiled a 95-or-better passer rating and 10-or-more touchdown passes through seven weeks (Houston’s DESHAUN WATSON had a 103 rating and 19 TDs through seven games in 2017).
In fact, rookies are prevalent all over the NFL landscape as the season approaches its midway point. The 100th season is the only campaign in NFL history in which a rookie through seven weeks of play:
  • Has a 95-or-better passer rating (GARDNER MINSHEW, Jacksonville, 95.7),
  • Has 10-or-more touchdown passes (GARDNER MINSHEW, Jacksonville, 10),
  • Has at least 550 rushing yards (JOSH JACOBS, Oakland, 554),
  • Has at least 400 receiving yards (TERRY McLAURIN, Washington, 419),
  • Has five-or-more overall touchdowns (TERRY McLAURIN, Washington, five),
  • Has at least two interceptions (DEVIN BUSH, Pittsburgh, and RYAN CONNELLY, N.Y. Giants, each with two)    – AND – 
  • Has at least five sacks (JOSH ALLEN, Jacksonville, five).

A POINT ABOUT ONE-POINT GAMES: This past week, eight games were within one score (eight points or fewer) at some point in the fourth quarter. Through seven weeks, 69 of 106 games (65.1 percent) have seen a team come within one possession of tying or taking the lead in the fourth quarter. Only three previous seasons have had more one-point games through Week 7 since the 1970 merger. And, only three other seasons have seen more games decided by seven-or-fewer points in NFL history.
The seasons with the most games decided by one- and seven-or-fewer points through seven weeks:

Active coaches in bold; from 1920-71, tie games were not included in winning percentage.
Belichick meets the CLEVELAND BROWNS, where he served as head coach from 1991-95. Ironically, his best season in Cleveland was 1994, when he guided the 11-5 Browns to a Wild Card win over Pro Football Hall of Famer BILL PARCELLS and the Patriots. During his Cleveland tenure, Belichick’s Browns coaching staff and front office contained some of the NFL’s most talented minds.

BOOKEND NFL POINT-DIFFERENTIALS: New England owns a plus-175 point-differential (223 points scored, 48 points allowed), the second-highest mark in NFL history through seven games. Only one other club through seven games, the 1920 BUFFALO ALL-AMERICANS – in the first season of league competition, 1920 – had a higher point-differential, plus-218. The only other clubs with a point-differential of at least 163 through seven games were the 1941 CHICAGO BEARS (plus-173) and the 1921 BUFFALO ALL-AMERICANS (plus-163).
DOMINATING IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT FOR NEW ENGLAND DEFENSE: With road shutouts in Week 2 and Week 7, the Patriots have two road shutout wins of at least 30 points in 2019. New England is the second team in NFL history to blank an opponent on the road by at least 30 points on multiple occasions in a single season. Only the 1942 CHICAGO BEARS (two) can claim that distinction over a full year.
The Patriots also lead the NFL with 18 interceptions this season. Through seven games, only three clubs in NFL history have had more.

STATEMENT FROM NFL COMMISSIONER ROGER GOODELL ON THE PASSING OF WILLIE BROWN
"We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Raiders' great Willie Brown. As a player, coach, and executive, Willie served as a tremendous ambassador for the Raiders and football for more than 50 years. He will forever be immortalized by NFL Films with his iconic 75-yard interception return in Super Bowl XI as he ran straight into the camera and our imaginations. After a remarkable 16-year Pro Football Hall of Fame career that he began as an undrafted free agent, Willie went on to become a Raiders coach and later a member of the team's front office. Willie lived the Raiders' motto "Commitment to Excellence" with integrity and touched the lives of hundreds of NFL players with his wisdom and wit. Willie was always a welcome guest at the NFL Draft and I enjoyed visiting with him each year. He was always enthusiastic and optimistic about the Raiders' picks and upcoming season.
"We extend our condolences to Willie's family, the Raiders organization, and fans around the world."

NFL and NATA Announce Funding for ‘Team Up for Sports Safety’
​Korey Stringer Institute to Lead Advocacy Efforts for High School Sports Best-Practice Policies
NEW YORK (October 10, 2019) – The NFL Foundation and the National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA) today announced contributions to support Team Up for Sports Safety (TUFSS). The Korey Stringer Institute (KSI)-led initiative will drive the adoption of policies proven to reduce sports injuries. As part of this effort, KSI will host meetings this week in Maryland and Delaware with local high school sports leaders and state legislators. These meetings will continue throughout the year with plans to reach all 50 states.
The TUFSS initiative builds on research published by KSI in 2017 which examined existing state mandates to assess their inclusion of best-practice policy recommendations for catastrophic injuries in sport. KSI found that many state policies do not include even the most widely-accepted standards. For example, data shows more than 90 percent of sports-related deaths among secondary school athletes are due to cardiac arrest, exertional heat stroke, traumatic brain injuries and exertional sickling, a medical emergency occurring in athletes that carry the sickle cell trait. Simple, cost-effective strategies can prevent nearly all deaths, but currently no state meets 100 percent of the minimum best-practice standards.
"It is with great excitement that the Korey Stringer Institute (KSI) at the University of Connecticut, with substantial financial support from the NFL Foundation and the NATA announces the official formation of TUFSS- Team Up for Sports Safety," said KSI Chief Executive Officer, DR. DOUGLAS CASA. "Recently KSI conducted an evaluation of all 50 states to see where each stood with essential safety policies to prevent sudden death in high school sports. The TUFSS initiative is passionately focused on working to get every state to adopt minimum standards for best practices so that the health and safety of the high school athlete becomes an area of focus."
"It is part of our mission to advance the health and well-being of student athletes," said NFL Executive Vice President of Player Health and Safety Innovations, JEFF MILLER. "As a part of our own efforts to evolve the game, the NFL shares information about changes we have made on and off the field to improve player protection for all sports at every level. We are proud to offer the league's support of this important effort."
"We believe wholeheartedly that every youth and secondary school sports leader and state legislator wants to improve safety in sport," said NATA President TORY LINDLEY, MA, ATC. "Most of us connected to sports are parents, therefore, this issue hits very close to home. TUFSS brings together sports leaders and influencers to discuss and implement policies to reduce injury in sports."
