Several clubs have strung together streaks — either winning or losing — and will see them come to an end in Week 11 as they face teams heading in the same direction.
Before that, there's Tennessee at Pittsburgh on Thursday night. Both teams have won four in a row.

“As awesome as it will be to see Dick on a personal note, he’s not the type of guy you want to see in a headset on the other sideline,” Steelers Coach
After leading the league in scoring touchdowns in the red zone last season, the Titans struggled to do that early in the year. They have scored that way in each of the past three games, however, climbing from 31st to 10th in red-zone scoring.
“Proof is in the tape that when we get all guys operating and doing their job efficiently, we're pretty effective, and not just in the red zone; I'm talking about putting drives together for scores," Coach
Buffalo plays at the Chargers, with each team looking to stop a two-game slide.
"Horrible game," Taylor said of the performance, in which he completed nine of 18 passes for 56 yards with an interception. "Our offense didn't get anything going and that starts with me. Just an overall bad game. Something as a team we have to learn from. I definitely have to learn from this one."

In trampling Buffalo on Sunday, the normally pass-happy Saints ran for 298 yards and a club-record six rushing touchdowns.
Washington has a middle-of-the-road run defense and is tied for 18th with Oakland and the

Clayborn had a career-high six sacks against Dallas on Sunday while forcing two fumbles and recovering one.
Those six sacks are not only a single-game club record but also are tied for the second most in a game since sacks became an official statistic in 1982. The record is held by the late Derrick Thomas, the Kansas City icon who had seven against Seattle in 1990.

The Raiders, who broke ground Monday on their Las Vegas stadium, will play New England in Mexico City on Sunday. It's the second consecutive season the Silver & Black has played in that locale, with the Raiders beating Houston there on "Monday Night Football" last year.
