Buffalo Bills: Receiver Marquise Goodwin’s 84-yard touchdown reception during a loss to the Jets on Thursday was the longest ever by a Bill at home.

Cincinnati Bengals: Bengals will be without linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who is serving a three-game suspension for an illegal hit (after others) the last time they met Pittsburgh.

Cleveland Browns: Josh McCown is the latest quarterback to start for the Browns, with Robert Griffin III, who started Week 1, out with a left shoulder injury.

Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck needs one rushing TD to tie Johnny Unitas (13) for the third-most in Colts history. Bert Jones is second with 14, Peyton Manning first with 17.

Jacksonville Jaguars: The Jaguars haven’t won on the West Coast since 2004 and are 2-10 all time in the Pacific time zone, including three games in San Diego.

Kansas City Chiefs: The Chiefs have won 11 consecutive regular-season games going back to last season. They have also won three in a row against the Texans.

Oakland Raiders: A win against the Falcons would give the Raiders their third 2-0 start since they moved back to Oakland in 1995. Their last 2-0 start came in 2002.
