Arizona: Larry Fitzgerald has yet to score a touchdown in five career games in his hometown of Minneapolis. He’s averaged 87.4 yards receiving in those games.

Atlanta: The 1-4 Falcons are off to the worst start in Dan Quinn’s tenure. After three losses by a combined 13 points, they were routed by Pitts- burgh 41-17 last week.

Carolina: Graham Gano’s 63-yard field goal vs. the Giants last week is tied for second-longest in NFL history. (Then Denver kicker Matt Prater made a 64-yarder in 2013).

Chicago: Khalil Mack has five sacks and four forced fumbles (which puts him in a tie for the most in the league), with at least one of each in all four of the Bears’ games.

Dallas: The Cowboys are looking to win their first three home games for the first time in AT&T Stadium’s nine-year existence.

Detroit: The Lions allow a league-worst 145.8 yards rushing a game. They’re 2-0 when holding opponents (Patriots, Packers) under 100 yards rushing and 2-3 overall.

Green Bay: Before missing four of five field goal attempts and an extra point last week, Mason Crosby had made 10 of 11 FG attempts, including two 52-yarders.

Minnesota: Kirk Cousins has completed 30 or more passes in an NFL-record four straight games. He connected on 30 of 37 passes against Philadelphia last week.

New Orleans: Drew Brees needs 41 touchdown passes to break Peyton Manning’s record of 539. But he will have to outpace New England’s Tom Brady, who has 500.

N.Y. Giants: Saquon Barkley rushed for 130 yards and caught nine passes for 99 more Thursday against the Eagles. Imagine if the Giants had a good line.

Philadelphia: Left tackle Jason Peters tore a biceps muscle Thursday, but Eagles are hopeful the nine-time Pro Bowler will be able to play with the injury.

RAMS: Aaron Donald has three sacks this year, all of which have come in the last two weeks. He’s the only defensive tackle with 200 tackles (219) and 40 sacks (42) since 2014.

San Francisco: The 49ers ran 92 offensive plays against Arizona last week, the most in franchise history and more than any other team in a loss since 2013.

Seattle: Frank Clark had a sack and an interception in Week 5 after losing 12 pounds and needing eight IVs earlier in the week because of possible food poisoning.

Tampa Bay: Jameis Winston has 12 touchdown passes and two interceptions in five games against Atlanta. He threw for three scores with no picks last time.
