Arizona: Seven games into the season, Larry Fitzgerald finally got his first touchdown reception of 2018, a four-yard pass from Josh Rosen on Thursday night.

Atlanta: Matt Ryan has more yards (1,432) and a higher passer rating (128.2) than any QB over the last four weeks. He has 12 TDs with no picks during that stretch.

Carolina: Cam Newton has a league-high 115.7 passer rating in the red zone. He has eight touchdowns (five passing, three rushing) from inside opponents’ 20.

Chicago: Second-year running back Tarik Cohen has compiled 100-plus yards from scrimmage in back- to-back games for the first time in his career.

Dallas: QB Dak Prescott hasn’t lost in four starts against Washington. In those games, he had five touchdowns (three passing, two rushing) with no interceptions.

Detroit: Four of Matt Stafford’s five picks this year came in Week 1. In the four games since, he’s finished with at least two touchdown passes and a 100-plus passer rating.

Green Bay: With 47 catches in six games, Davante Adams is on pace for 125 this season, which would break Sterling Sharpe’s team record of 112, set in 1993.

Minnesota: Kirk Cousins turned down a three- year, $90-million deal with the Jets, today’s opponent, in favor of a three-year, $84-million offer from the Vikings.

New Orleans: With a win this week against Baltimore, Drew Brees would join Peyton Manning and Brett Favre as the only quarterbacks with a victory against every team.

N.Y. Giants: Eli Manning needs five TD passes to become the seventh player with 350. It’s unlikely to happen this week — he’s thrown only five-plus in a game twice.

Philadelphia: Carson Wentz is three passes away from a personal record of 136 straight throws without an interception. He hasn’t been picked off since Sept. 23.

RAMS: The Rams have started the season with six straight wins for first time since doing so in each of the 1999, 2000 and 2001 seasons. They have not been 7-0 since 1985.

San Francisco: The 49ers defense has produced only three turnovers this season and the team has a turnover differential of minus-11, both league lows.

Seattle: Pete Carroll said the best way his 3-3 team can honor owner Paul Allen, who died last week at 65, is to continue battling back into contention after an 0-2 start.

Tampa Bay: The Buccaneers’ 1,842 yards are the third-most through the first five games of the year. Only the 2000 Rams (1,973) and 2013 Broncos (1,869) had more.

Washington: Josh Norman’s interception of a pass by Carolina’s Cam Newton last week was the former Pro Bowler’s first pick since Dec. 24, 2016, a 19-game stretch.
