Atlanta: Matt Ryan is the NFL’s top passer in yards (3,683) but has been sacked 33 times, fifth most in the league, 14 coming on the team’s current three-game skid.

Carolina: Christian McCaffrey became the first Panthers player to have 100-plus yards rushing (125) and receiving (112) in the same game last week against Seattle.

Chicago: Safety Eddie Jackson has scored a touchdown in three of the last four games. He has a 65-yard fumble return for a TD to go with a pair of pick-sixes.

Dallas: Owner Jerry Jones said the upset win over the Saints on Thursday will have a lasting impact on his players: “This team will never be the same again.”

Detroit: Matthew Stafford has thrown three TD passes and had four passes intercepted over his last four games. He has 17 and 10, respectively, for the season.

Green Bay: Davante Adams is the only player with 70-plus catches (career-high 77 this season) and 10 or more receiving TDs in each of the last three seasons.

Minnesota: Adam Thielen is the first Vikings receiver with nine 100-yard games in one season. He leads the NFL in catches (93) and is No. 2 in yards receiving (1,138).

New Orleans: Drew Brees passed for 127 yards Thursday night in a loss to Dallas. It’s the second straight week he has been held to fewer than 200 yards passing.

N.Y. Giants: The offense has allowed 38 sacks, the second most in the NFL. The defense has sacked the opposing quarterback 14 times, the second fewest in the league.

Philadelphia: Carson Wentz has a passer rating of 100 or more in six of the last seven games and has completed at least 70% of his passes in five of the last six games.

RAMS: Brandin Cooks needs 36 yards to become the first player with 1,000 yards receiving three straight years for different teams (Saints in 2016, Patriots in 2017).

San Francisco: CB Richard Sherman returns to Seattle, where he played for seven seasons, a week after allowing 100 yards receiving for only the sixth time in his career.

Seattle: Russell Wilson passed for a season-high 339 yards last week, and did so with his helmet speaker for play calls not functioning properly for much of the first half.

Tampa Bay: With 101/2 sacks this year, Jason Pierre-Paul is the first Buccaneers player with 10 or more sacks in a season since Simeon Rice, who had 14 in 2005.
