Cincinnati: Andy Dalton threw four first-half touchdown passes, three to A.J. Green, to lead the Bengals’ to a 34-23 win over Baltimore and their first 2-0 start since 2015.

CHARGERS: It’s been a decade since Chargers have trailed Buffalo in a game. They’ve won three straight over the Bills by a combined score of 113-44.

Cleveland: The Browns have won two straight against the Saints but haven’t defeated anyone since 2016. They won’t go 0-16 again this year but still could finish 0-0-16.

Denver: Von Miller had three sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery during the Broncos’ Week 1 win over Seattle. His 86 1/2 sacks since 2011 lead the NFL.

Houston: The Texans scored a franchise- record seven touch- downs against the Titans last October, with De- shaun Watson accounting for five of those TDs.

Indianapolis: Adam Vinatieri is four field goals away from breaking Morten Andersen’s all-time record of 565. Vinatieri made three of four attempts last week.

Miami: Frank Gore needs 15 yards to move past Curtis Martin (14,101 yards) into fourth on the all-time rushing list. Gore had 61 yards in the season opener.

New England: Tom Brady is 8-0 against the Jaguars. In those games, he has thrown for more than 1,800 yards with 19 touchdowns and two interceptions.

N.Y. Jets: The Jets scored 31 third-quarter points last week against Detroit, the most in that quarter for any NFL team since the Rams’ 41 against the Lions in 1950.

Oakland: The Raiders’ top receivers last week were TE Jared Cook, with a career-high 180 yards, and RB Jalen Richard, who had a personal-best nine catches.
