Arizona Cardinals: Adrian Peterson needs one touchdown run Sunday at San Francisco to be the ninth player with 100, and 17 yards to be the 16th with 12,000 rushing.

Atlanta Falcons: Sunday’s foe Carolina has the top-five defense, but the Falcons’ Vic Beasley has 18 1/2 sacks since 2016, second most in the NFC. Deion Jones has three straight games with 11 tackles. 

Carolina Panthers: The Panthers traded receiver Kelvin Benjamin to Buffalo, leaving rookie Christian McCaffrey as the team’s leading receiver with 378 yards in 49 catches. 

Chicago Bears: Adding insult to injury for linebacker Jerrell Freeman, he was suspended 10 games for a second failed test for performance-enhancing drugs. Bears have a bye.

Dallas Cowboys: Former Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, in his first season as lead analyst for CBS, will call Sunday’s game against Kansas City.

Detroit Lions: Matt Prater, who just got a contract extension, is the only kicker to make at least 20 field goals of 50 yards or longer with two teams. He did it for Denver too. 

Green Bay Packers: Linebacker Vince Biegel, a fourth-round draft pick, will make his debut Monday night vs. Detroit after coming off the physically unable to perform list.

Minnesota Vikings: The Vikings, off this week, have until Wednesday to activate quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (knee) from the PUP list.

N.Y. Giants: Cornerback Janoris Jenkins will sit vs. his old Rams team Sunday, suspended indefinitely after missing a workout following the team’s bye week.

Philadelphia Eagles: The Eagles, who host Denver Sunday, are the only team to score at least 20 points each game in 2017 and have done so in 12 in a row, best in the NFL.

RAMS: Jared Goff is 3-0 in three road games with 671 yards passing, six touchdowns and no interceptions. He has 1,719 yards and nine TD passes overall.

San Francisco 49ers: Rookie Ahkello Witherspoon had his first career interception last week and is now a starter following the trade of Rashard Robinson. 

Seattle Seahawks: Tight end Jimmy Graham had two touchdowns last week, his second time since joining the Seahawks in 2015. They host the Redskins on Sunday.
