6. Times Brees was sacked in a jarring 31-21 loss to the previously-winless Rams. Brees had been sacked 13 times in seven games this season. St. Louis defensive end Chris Long had three sacks; the 2nd overall pick in the 2008 draft had three sacks in the first six games.
252: Yards by the Cincinnati Bengals in a 34-12 win over Seattle. Why is that number interesting? The Seahawks had 411 yards. The Bengals averaged a meek 4.4 yards per play, the Seahawks had more than double the passing yards of the Bengals (350-160), and they still won handily. I hope you read this.
20:38. That’s how long the Patriots had the ball in a 25-17 loss to the Steelers. New England had one 1st quarter possession – a 3-and-out that lasted just 1:24 – and never really recovered.
239: rushing yards from the Eagles Sunday night in a 34-7 romp over Dallas, which had the No. 1 ranked rushing defense in the league coming into the game. Philadelphia averaging 6.3 yards per carry, and LeSean McCoy rushed for 185 yards.
