INTERCONFERENCE MATCHUPS HIGHLIGHT WEEK 9;

FOURTH-QUARTER COMEBACKS, LATE-GAME DRAMA CONTINUE AS NFL APPROACHES HALFWAY POINT

As the NFL approaches the halfway marker of its 2021 regular season, teams are proving again and again that what matters most is not how you start.

It’s how you finish.

On 37 occasions this season, a team has trailed in the fourth quarter and come back to win, including eight of 15 games this past weekend. The eight teams – Dallas, Kansas City, New England, New Orleans, the New York Jets, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Tennessee – to accomplish the feat in Week 8 mark the most in a single week since nine teams did it in Week 1 of 2016. Three teams – Baltimore, Tennessee and the Los Angeles Chargers – have three wins this season after trailing in the fourth quarter.

Through eight weeks of any previous NFL season, only the 2012 campaign (38) had more fourth-quarter comebacks.

The most victories by teams that trailed in the fourth quarter through Week 8 in NFL history:

This season, 31 games have been decided with a score in the final two minutes of regulation or in overtime, tied with 2012 for the most such late-game thrillers in NFL history through Week 8.

Through eight weeks, 26 games have featured a game-winning score in the final minute of the fourth quarter or in overtime, tied with 2015 for the most ever at this point in a season.

  • Also in Week 8, five games were decided by three-or-fewer points.
  • Two teams overcame deficits of at least 10 points to win: Tennessee trailed by 14 points before defeating Indianapolis, 34-31, in overtime, while the New York Jets erased an 11-point fourth-quarter deficit to beat Cincinnati, 34-31.
  • Including that Titans victory, there have been 12 overtime games this season, tied with the 2002 and 2003 seasons for the third-most overtime games at this point of a season all-time. Only 1995 (14 overtime games) and 1983 (13) had more.

INTERCONFERENCE MATCHUPS HIGHLIGHT WEEK 9Week 9 features eight interconference matchups, the first time since Week 3 of the 2018 season (eight) that there have been at least eight games in a single week featuring both an AFC and NFC team.

Three of the interconference matchups feature two teams that were each in the postseason last year:

  • GREEN BAY (7-1) at KANSAS CITY (4-4): Green Bay enters Week 9 on a seven-game winning streak while Kansas City is coming off a Monday Night Football victory over the New York Giants. Since 2018, when PATRICK MAHOMES took over as the Chiefs’ starting quarterback, Kansas City (42-14, .750) and Green Bay (39-16-1, .705) are two of the four teams with a winning percentage above .700.Mahomes (2018 NFL MVP) and Green Bay quarterback AARON RODGERS (2020 NFL MVP) have been two of the best players in the NFL over the past four seasons.

Totals and ranks among quarterbacks since 2018

  • TENNESSEE (6-2) at L.A. RAMS (7-1) on Sunday Night Football: Both Tennessee and Los Angeles enter Week 9 on four-game winning streaks. Both teams have scored at least 25 points in their combined 13 wins this season.The Titans are looking to continue their success without the league’s leading rusher, DERRICK HENRY, who was placed on injured reserve this week. Quarterback RYAN TANNEHILL has a passer rating of 90-or-higher in three of his four road starts this season while wide receiver A.J. BROWN aims for his third game in a row with at least 125 receiving yards and a touchdown catch.This week, the Rams acquired linebacker VON MILLER from Denver. Since 2014, defensive tackle AARON DONALD (90.5 sacks) and Miller (75.5) rank first and fourth, respectively, in sacks. Quarterback MATTHEW STAFFORD ranks second in the league this season in passing yards (2,447), touchdown passes (22) and passer rating (118.0) while wide receiver COOPER KUPP became the first player in the Super Bowl era with at least 900 receiving yards (924) and 10 touchdown receptions (10) in his team’s first 10 games of a season.
  • CHICAGO (3-5) at PITTSBURGH (4-3) on Monday Night Football: Last week, Chicago’s JUSTIN FIELDS became the third rookie quarterback in NFL history to record a passing touchdown, rushing touchdown and at least 100 rushing yards in a single game, joining ROBERT GRIFFIN III (Oct. 14, 2012) and MARCUS MARIOTA (Dec. 6, 2015).Steelers quarterback BEN ROETHLISBERGER has a 16-6 record in 22 career starts on Monday and has at least two touchdown passes in six of his past seven games on Monday Night Football.

UNPRECEDENTED WEEKEND FOR QUARTERBACKS IN FIRST STARTS: This past weekend, both MIKE WHITE of the Jets and COOPER RUSH of the Cowboys led their teams to dramatic, fourth-quarter comeback wins. It marked the first NFL weekend since at least 1950 in which multiple quarterbacks making their first NFL starts won their games while each passing for 300-or-more yards.

  • Rush is the only quarterback since the league merger in 1970 to pass for at least 300 yards and throw a game-winning touchdown pass in the final minute of his first career NFL start.
  • White completed 37 of 45 pass attempts (82.2 percent) for 405 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions for a 107.9 rating in the Jets' win. His 37 completions are the most by a quarterback all-time in his first career start. He also joined CAM NEWTON (422 yards on Sept. 11, 2011) as the only quarterbacks since 1950 to pass for at least 400 yards in their first career starts.

JUST CAN’T WAIT TO GET BACK OUT ON THAT ROAD AGAIN: NFL teams were 9-6 on the road last week and this season are 63-59 (.516) overall away from home. That’s the fourth-best road winning percentage at this point of any season since the league merger in 1970, trailing 1983 (.558), 2019 (.525) and 1972 (.519).

The ARIZONA CARDINALS (7-1), who are tied with the Rams for the league’s best road record (4-0), travel to meet the SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (3-4) on Sunday (4:25 PM ET, FOX). Arizona has road victories this year over the Titans, Jaguars, Rams and Browns, and each of those road victories has been by at least 12 points.

  • Arizona is the first team to win its first four road contests by 12-or-more points since the 2007 NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS. This week, the Cardinals are bidding to become the first team to win its first five road games with a margin of victory of at least 12 in each contest since the 2005 INDIANAPOLIS COLTS.
  • Meanwhile, San Francisco wide receiver DEEBO SAMUEL ranks second in the league with 819 receiving yards, the most through seven games ever by a 49ers player. Pro Football Hall of Famer JERRY RICE established the previous mark, 781 through the team’s first seven games in 1986.

PACKERS WINNING TURNOVER MARGINS, TOO: The GREEN BAY PACKERS (7-1) face a road test against the KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (4-4) on Sunday (4:25 ET, FOX). The Packers enter the game with a share of the league’s best record (7-1), the league’s longest active winning streak (seven) and a few other impressive feats.

  • Green Bay has won the turnover margin in each of its seven consecutive wins, the longest such streak of victories with a positive turnover ratio since Seattle’s eight-game stretch from 2012-13.

BIG O IN BIG D: The DALLAS COWBOYS (6-1) return home to face the DENVER BRONCOS (4-4) on Sunday (1:00 PM ET, FOX). The last time the teams met in Dallas, Oct. 6, 2013, Cowboys quarterback TONY ROMO and Pro Football Hall of Famer PEYTON MANNING combined to throw for 920 yards and nine touchdown passes. Each team erased a deficit of at least 14 points before Denver prevailed, 51-48, on a field goal by MATT PRATER as time expired.

  • Dallas running back EZEKIEL ELLIOTT leads the NFC with 571 rushing yards. He enters this week with 6,955 career rushing yards, needing 45 on Sunday to become the third player in franchise history to reach 7,000, joining Pro Football Hall of Famers EMMITT SMITH (17,162) and TONY DORSETT (12,036).
  • This year, the Cowboys lead the NFL with 454.9 yards per game. Through eight weeks, that’s the fifth-best figure at this point of a season since the league merger in 1970.

CHASING HISTORY: When the CINCINNATI BENGALS (5-3) host the CLEVELAND BROWNS (4-4) on Sunday (1:00 PM ET, CBS), rookie wide receiver JA'MARR CHASE looks to continue his impressive start. Chase has 786 receiving yards, the second-highest total by a player in his first eight career games all-time, trailing HARLON HILL (802).

  • On Sunday, Chase needs 84 receiving yards to surpass MARQUES COLSTON (869) for the most by a player ever over his first nine NFL games.
  • Last week, Chase recorded his seventh touchdown reception to become the fifth player in the Super Bowl era with a touchdown catch in six of his first eight career games, joining CHARLIE BROWN (1982), MARQUES COLSTON (2006), WILLIE GREEN (1991) and DONTE' STALLWORTH (2002).

VIVA LAS VEGAS: The LAS VEGAS RAIDERS (5-2), who share the AFC’s second-best record, come off their bye for a road game against the NEW YORK GIANTS (2-6) on Sunday (1:00 PM ET, CBS).

SAINTS HAVE FARED WELL AGAINST ALL-TIME LEADERS: Fresh off a win over Tampa Bay, the NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (5-2) host another divisional game against MATT RYAN and the ATLANTA FALCONS (3-4) on Sunday (1:00 PM ET, FOX). Since SEAN PAYTON became head coach in 2006, including wins over reigning Super Bowl MVP TOM BRADY and reigning league MVP AARON RODGERS this season, the Saints have faced eight quarterbacks currently ranked among the top 10 all-time leaders in passing yards,

  • Including the postseason, the Saints are 38-20 (.655) since 2006 in games against those eight quarterbacks. In that group, the only player against whom the Saints have a losing record is Pro Football Hall of Famer PEYTON MANNING. Their lone win against Manning was a victory over the Colts in Super Bowl XLIV.

The Saints’ record against quarterbacks currently ranked in the top 10 of the NFL’s all-time leaders in passing yards, including the postseason, since 2006:

Notas de la NFL de la novena semana

DUELOS INTERCONFERENCIA DOMINAN LA SEMANA 9;

CONTINÚAN LOS RESURGIMIENTOS Y EL DRAMA DE CIERRE DE PARTIDO CUANDO LA NFL SE APROXIMA A SU PUNTO MEDIO

Mientras la NFL se aproxima al punto medio de su 2021 temporada regular, los equipos dan muestras una y otra vez de que lo más importante no es cómo arrancas.

Es cómo terminas.

En 37 ocasiones esta temporada, un equipo estaba perdiendo en el último período y resurgió para ganar, incluyendo ocho de 15 partidos el pasado fin de semana. Los ocho equipos –Dallas, Kansas City, New England, New Orleans, los New York Jets, Pittsburgh, San Francisco y Tennessee– que lograron tal hazaña en la octava semana marca la mayor cantidad en una misma semana desde los nueve equipos en la primera semana de 2016. Tres equipos –Baltimore, Tennessee y los Los Angeles Chargers– tienen tres victorias esta temporada tras haber estado en desventaja en el último período. 

A lo largo de ocho semanas de cualquier temporada de NFL anterior, solamente la campaña 2012 (38) tuvo más remontadas de cuarto periodo.

La mayor cantidad de victorias por equipos que iban debajo en el marcador en el último período a lo largo de la octava semana en la historia de la NFL:

Esta temporada, 31 partidos fueron decididos con alguna anotación en los últimos dos minutos del tiempo regular o en la prórroga, empatados con 2012 para la mayor cantidad de tales desenlaces en la historia de la NFL a lo largo de la octava semana. 

A lo largo de ocho semanas, 26 partidos tuvieron una anotación que definió el pleito en el último minuto del cuarto período o en la prórroga, empatados con 2015 para la mayor cantidad en la historia en este punto en una temporada.

  • También en la octava semana, cinco partidos fueron decididos por tres o menos puntos.
  • Dos equipos se sobrepusieron a déficits de al menos 10 puntos para ganar: Tennessee perdía por 14 puntos antes de vencer a Indianapolis 34-31 en la prórroga, mientras los New York Jets borraron una desventaja de 11 puntos en el cuarto periodo para derrotar a Cincinnati 34-31.
  • Incluyendo ese triunfo de los Titans, esta temporada han habido 12 partidos definidos en la prórroga, empatando con 2002 y 2003 para la tercera mayor cantidad de juegos definidos en la prórroga en este punto de una temporada en la historia. Solamente 1995 (14 partidos en la prórroga) y 1983 (13) tuvieron más.

DUELOS INTERCONFERENCIA SE DESTACAN EN LA NOVENA SEMANA. La novena semana tiene ocho enfrentamientos interconferencia, la primera vez desde la tercera semana de la temporada 2018 (ocho) que en una misma semana han habido al menos ocho partidos protagonizados por equipos de la AFC y de la NFC.

Tres de los enfrentamientos interconferencia tienen dos equipos que el año anterior estuvieron en la postemporada:

  • GREEN BAY (7-1) en KANSAS CITY (4-4): Green Bay ingresa en la novena semana disfrutando de una racha ganadora de siete partidos, mientras Kansas City se alzó con un triunfo viniendo desde atrás en Monday Night Football sobre los New York Giants. Desde 2018, cuando PATRICK MAHOMES tomó las riendas como mariscal de campo titular de los Chiefs, Kansas City (42-14, .750) y Green Bay (39-16-1, .705) son dos de los cuatro equipos con un porcentaje de victorias por encima de .700.Mahomes (Jugador más valioso de la NFL 2018) y el mariscal de campo de Green Bay AARON RODGERS (Jugador más valioso de la NFL 2020) fue dos de los mejores jugadores en la NFL en las últimas cuatro temporadas.

Totales y ubicaciones entre mariscales de campo desde 2018

  • TENNESSEE (6-2) en L.A. RAMS (7-1) en el clásico de domingo en la noche Sunday Night Football. Tanto Tennessee como Los Angeles llegan a la novena semana en rachas ganadoras de cuatro partidos. Ambos equipos han anotado al menos 25 puntos en sus 13 victorias combinadas esta temporada.Los Titans están procurando continuar su éxito sin el líder acarreador de la NFL, DERRICK HENRY, que fue colocado en la lista de lesionados esta semana. El mariscal de campo RYAN TANNEHILL tiene un índice de pasador de 90 o superior en tres de sus cuatro titularidades fuera de casa esta temporada, mientras el receptor A.J. BROWN busca su tercer partido en línea con al menos 125 yardas recibiendo y alguna recepción anotadora.Esta semana los Rams adquirieron de Denver al apoyador VON MILLER . Desde 2014, el tackle defensivo AARON DONALD (90.5 capturas) y Miller (75.5) se ubican primero y cuarto, respectivamente, en capturas. El mariscal de campo MATTHEW STAFFORD se ubica segundo en la liga esta temporada en yardas aéreas (2,447), pases anotadores (22) e índice de pasador (118.0), mientras receptor COOPER KUPP se convirtió en el primer jugador en la era del Super Bowl con al menos 900 yardas recibiendo (924) y 10 recepciones anotadoras (10) en los primeros 10 partidos de su equipo en una temporada.
  • CHICAGO (3-5) en PITTSBURGH (4-3) en el clásico de lunes en le noche Monday Night Football. La semana pasada, el de Chicago JUSTIN FIELDS se convirtió en el tercer mariscal de campo novato en la historia de la NFL en registrar un pase anotador, un acarreo anotador y al menos 100 yardas por tierra en un mismo partido, uniéndose a ROBERT GRIFFIN III (14 de octubre de 2012) y a MARCUS MARIOTA (6 de diciembre de 2015).El mariscal de campo de los Steelers BEN ROETHLISBERGER tiene marca de 16-6 en las 22 titularidades de una carrera en día lunes y tiene al menos dos pases anotadores en seis de sus últimos siete partidos en Monday Night Football.

FIN DE SEMANA SIN PRECEDENTES PARA MARISCALES DE CAMPO EN SUS PRIMERAS TITULARIDADES. El pasado fin de semana, tanto MIKE WHITE, de los Jets, como COOPER RUSH, de los Cowboys, lideraron a sus equipos en dramáticos triunfos resurgiendo en el cuarto periodo. Marcó el primer fin de semana de la NFL desde al menos 1950 en el que múltiples mariscales de campo que están haciendo su primera titularidad en la NFL ganan sus partidos mientras que lanzan 300 o más yardas.

  • Rush es el único mariscal de campo desde la fusión de la liga, en 1970, en lanzar al menos 300 yardas y el pase anotador que define el pleito en el último minuto de la primera titularidad de su carrera en la NFL.
  • White completó 37 de 45 intentos de pase (82.2 por ciento) para 405 yardas, con tres anotaciones, dos intercepciones y un índice de 107.9 en el triunfo de los Jets. Sus 37 pases completos significan la mayor cantidad por un mariscal de campo en la historia en la primera titularidad de su carrera. También se unió a CAM NEWTON (422 yardas el 11 de septiembre de 2011) como los únicos mariscales de campo desde 1950 que lanzan al menos 400 yardas en sus primeras titularidades en una carrera.

NO PUEDO ESPERAR PARA VOLVER A SALIR DE GIRA. Los equipos de la NFL estuvieron 9-6 fuera de casa la semana pasada y esta temporada están 63-59 (.516) jugando de gira. Es el cuarto mejor porcentaje de triunfos en este punto de cualquier temporada desde la fusión de la liga en 1970, por detrás de 1983 (.558), 2019 (.525) y 1972 (.519).

Los ARIZONA CARDINALS (7-1), que están empatados con los Rams con la mejor marca de la liga jugando fuera de casa (4-0), viajan para enfrentar a los SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (3-4) el domingo (4:25 PM, hora de New York, FOX). Arizona tiene triunfos de visitante este año sobre los Titans, Jaguars, Rams y Browns, y cada de esos triunfos de visitante ha sido por al menos 12 puntos.

  • Arizona es el primer equipo en ganar sus primeros cuatro duelos de visitante por 12 o más puntos desde los NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS de 2007. Esta semana los Cardinals buscan convertirse en el primer equipo en ganar sus primeros cinco partidos fuera de casa con un margen de victoria de al menos 12 en cada duelo desde los INDIANAPOLIS COLTS de 2005.
  • Mientras tanto, el receptor de San Francisco DEEBO SAMUEL se ubica segundo en la liga con 819 yardas recibiendo, la mayor cantidad a lo largo de siete partidos en la historia por un jugador de los 49ers. El miembro del Salón de la Fama JERRY RICE estableció la marca previa con 781 yardas a lo largo de los primeros siete partidos del equipo en 1986.

LOS PACKERS GANAN EN TODA FACETA. Los GREEN BAY PACKERS (7-1) tienen una dura prueba contra los KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (4-4) el domingo (4:25 ET, FOX). Los Packers llegan al partido con la mejor marca de la liga (7-1, compartida con Arizona), la racha ganadora activa más larga de la liga (siete) y algunos otros hitos destacados.

  • Green Bay ganó el margen de entrega de balón en cada una de sus siete victorias consecutivas, la racha más larga de ese tipo de victorias con índice positivo de entrega de balón desde la racha de ocho partidos de Seattle en el lapso 2012-13.

Los Chiefs, en tanto, están viniendo de un triunfo de lunes en la noche. Los equipos de la NFL esta temporada están 7-0 en partidos posteriores a una victoria en Monday Night Football. A lo largo de un lapso más largo, remontándonos a la semana 14 de la pasada temporada, los clubes están 12-0 en partidos posteriores a un triunfo en lunes en la noche.

KUPP QUIERE UNIRSE A LA ELITE. Cuando los LOS ANGELES RAMS (7-1) reciban a los TENNESSEE TITANS (6-2) en el clásico de domingo en la noche Sunday Night Football (8:20 PM, hora de New York, NBC), posen sus ojos en COOPER KUPP. El receptor de los Rams tiene la oportunidad de unirse a cuatro miembros del Salón de la Fama (DON HUTSON en 1942, ELROY "CRAZY LEGS" HIRSCH en 1951, RAYMOND BERRY en 1960 y JERRY RICE en 1990) como los únicos jugadores que llegan a 1,000 yardas recibiendo y 10 recepciones anotadoras a lo largo de los primeros nueve partidos de la temporada de un equipo en la historia de la NFL.

  • La semana pasada, Kupp registró siete recepciones para 115 yardas y una anotación en el triunfo de los Rams. Kupp, que tiene 63 recepciones para 924 yardas y 10 anotaciones esta temporada, es el primer jugador en la era del Super Bowl con al menos 900 yardas recibiendo y 10 recepciones anotadoras en los primeros ocho partidos de su equipo en una temporada.
  • Kupp es también el tercer jugador en la historia con al menos siete recepciones en siete de los primeros ocho partidos de su equipo en una temporada, uniéndose a ADAM THIELEN (2018) y MICHAEL THOMAS (2019).
  • Elmariscal de campo de los Los Angeles MATTHEW STAFFORD la semana pasada lanzó 305 yardas, con tres anotaciones, ninguna intercepción e índice de 127.7. Stafford ahora tiene 28 partidos en su carrera con al menos 300 yardas aéreas y tres pases anotadores, superando al miembro del Salón de la Fama PEYTON MANNING (27) para la quinta mayor cantidad de tales partidos por un jugador en sus primeras 13 temporadas en la historia de la NFL.
  • Desde que SEAN MCVAY se convirtió en entrenador en jefe de los Rams en 2017, el equipo está 43-0 cuando tienen la ventaja en el medio tiempo, incluyendo la postemporada. Esa es la segunda racha más larga de ese tipo en la historia de la NFL, solamente detrás de los GREEN BAY PACKERS, que ganaron 49 partidos consecutivos en los que lideraban el marcador llegado el medio tiempo, en el lapso 1926-33 bajo el mando del miembro del Salón de la Fama CURLY LAMBEAU.
  • Los Titans jugaron tres partidos definidos en la prórroga esta temporada y están a ritmo de quebrar la marca de temporada de la NFL, ostentada por los GREEN BAY PACKERS de 1983, que jugaron cinco partidos definidos en la prórroga.
  • Tennessee está 3-1 (.750) en partidos decididos por tres puntos o menos. Con un mínimo de tres de esos partidos, solamente los Packers (3-0) tienen mejor marca en esas situaciones esta temporada.

GRANDES OFENSIVA Y DEFENSIVA. Los DALLAS COWBOYS (6-1) regresan a casa para enfrentar a los DENVER BRONCOS (4-4) el domingo (1:00 PM, hora de New York, FOX). La última vez que estos equipos se enfrentaron en Dallas, el 6 de octubre de 2013, el mariscal de campo de los Cowboys TONY ROMO y el miembro del Salón de la Fama PEYTON MANNING se combinaron para lanzar 920 yardas y nueve pases anotadores. Cada equipo borró una desventaja de al menos 14 puntos antes de que Denver prevaleciera 51-48 con un gol de campo de MATT PRATER cuando el reloj expiraba.

  • El corredor de Dallas EZEKIEL ELLIOTT lidera la NFC con 571 yardas por tierra. Ingresa a esta semana con 6,955 yardas por tierra en su carrera, necesitando 45 el domingo para convertirse en el tercer jugador en la historia de la franquicia que alcanza las 7,000, uniéndose a los miembros del Salón de la Fama EMMITT SMITH (17,162) y TONY DORSETT (12,036). 
  • Este año, los Cowboys lideran la NFL con 454.9 yardas por partido. A lo largo de ocho semanas, es la quinta mejor cifra en este punto de una temporada desde la fusión de la liga en 1970.Los equipos que promediaron la mayor cantidad de yardas por partido a lo largo de la octava semana, desde 1970:

EN PROCURA DE LA HISTORIA. Cuando los CINCINNATI BENGALS (5-3) reciban a los CLEVELAND BROWNS (4-4) el domingo (1:00 PM, hora de New York, CBS), el receptor novato JA'MARR CHASE busca continuar su gran arranque de temporada. Chase tiene 786 yardas recibiendo, el segundo total más alto por un jugador en los primeros ocho partidos en su carrera en la historia, detrás de HARLON HILL (802).

  • El domingo, Chase necesita 84 yardas recibiendo para superar a MARQUES COLSTON (869) para la mayor cantidad por un jugador en la historia a lo largo de sus primeros nueve partidos en la NFL.
  • La semana pasada, Chase registró su séptima recepción anotadora para convertirse en el quinto jugador en la era del Super Bowl con alguna recepción anotadora en seis de los primeros ocho partidos en su carrera, uniéndose a CHARLIE BROWN (1982), MARQUES COLSTON (2006), WILLIE GREEN (1991) y DONTE' STALLWORTH (2002).

VIVA LAS VEGAS. Los LAS VEGAS RAIDERS (5-2), que comparten la mejor marca de la AFC, vienen de su descanso para un partido de visitante contra los NEW YORK GIANTS (2-6) el domingo (1:00 PM, hora de New York, CBS). 

  • En la séptima semana, el mariscal de campo de los Raiders DEREK CARR completó 31 de 34 intentos de pase (91.2 por ciento) para 323 yardas, con dos anotaciones, una intercepción y un índice de 113.6 en el triunfo de su equipo. El porcentaje de pases completos de Carr, de 91.2, es el segundo más alto en un solo partido en la historia en partidos en los que un mariscal de campo intentó al menos 30 pases. Solamente DREW BREES (96.7 por ciento el 16 de diciembre de 2019) tuvo un porcentaje superior de pases completos en un solo partido.
  • Entre los entrenadores en jefe que se hicieron cargo de sus equipos durante una temporada, el de los Raiders RICH BISACCIA tiene la oportunidad de convertirse en el primer entrenador en jefe en ganar sus primeros tres partidos desde que GARY MOELLER se hizo cargo a mitad de temporada y lideró a los Lions a tres victorias consecutivas en 2000.

LOS SAINTS CONTRA LOS MEJORES DE LA HISTORIA. Viniendo de una victoria sobre Tampa Bay, los NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (5-2) reciben otro partido divisional contra MATT RYAN y los ATLANTA FALCONS (3-4) el domingo (1:00 PM, hora de New York, FOX). Desde que SEAN PAYTON se convirtió en entrenador en jefe, en 2006, incluyendo victorias sobre TOM BRADY, Jugador más valioso del Super Bowl reinante, y AARON RODGERS, Jugador más valioso de la liga, esta temporada los Saints han enfrentado ocho mariscales de campo actualmente ubicados entre los 10 mejores en la historia en yardas aéreas, 

  • Incluyendo la postemporada, los Saints están 38-20 (.655) desde 2006 en partidos contra esos ocho mariscales de campo. En ese grupo, el único jugador contra quien los Saints tienen marca perdedora es el miembro del Salón de la Fama PEYTON MANNING. Su único triunfo contra Manning fue una victoria sobre los Colts en el Super Bowl XLIV.

LOS BILLS LIDERAN EN AMBOS COSTADOS. Los BUFFALO BILLS (5-2) lideran la NFL tanto en puntos anotados por partido (32.7) como en menor cantidad de puntos permitidos por partido (15.6). Solamente dos equipos, desde la fusión de la liga en 1970, terminaron la temporada liderando la NFL en ambas categorías: los MIAMI DOLPHINS de 1972 y los GREEN BAY PACKERS de 1996. 

  • El mariscal de campo de los Bills JOSH ALLEN lidera su equipo en su viaje al TIAA Bank Field para vérselas con los JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (1-6) el domingo (1:00 PM, hora de New York, CBS).

Since 1970, only two teams finished the season leading the league in both categories: the 1996 Green Bay Packers and 1972 Miami Dolphins. Each of those teams advanced to the Super Bowl.

Last week, quarterback JOSH ALLEN totaled three touchdowns (two passing, one rushing), his 19th career game with both a passing and rushing touchdown and third this season.

With both a passing and rushing touchdown on Sunday at Jacksonville (1:00 PM ET, CBS), Allen can join CAM NEWTON (24 games) as the only players ever with both a passing and rushing touchdown in at least 20 games in their first four seasons.

-- NFL --

OFFENSE IS BIGGER IN DALLAS: The DALLAS COWBOYS lead the league in total offense through eight weeks, averaging 454.9 yards per game. That marks the fifth-most by a team through Week 8 since 1970. They have totaled at least 375 total yards of offense in each of their seven games this season and have reached 400 total yards in six of seven contests.

With at least 400 yards of offense on Sunday against Denver (1:00 PM ET, FOX), they will become the sixth team ever to total at least 400 yards in seven of their first eight games of a season.

Solamente ODELL BECKHAM JR. (21) alcanzó la marca en menos partidos.
