Another week, another chance for Drew Brees to join Brett Favre and Peyton Manning in a career-stat category. This time it's all-time completions. With 23 in a 20-12 win against the Bears, Brees has 6,011 career completions, trailing only Favre (6,300) and Manning (6,125). And by the way, the Saints have won five straight heading into Sunday's game against the Bucs.Two of the Falcons' four wins have ended on 10-second runoffs, though their 25-20 victory vs. the Jets on a rainy day in the Meadowlands wasn't nearly as dramatic as their win at Detroit. The weather was a factor. Falcons QB Matt Ryan fumbled four times. He lost two. Atlanta snapped a three-game skid during its four straight games vs. the AFC East.Trade your starting DE to the Jags on Friday? So what. Play without three injured D starters? Whatever. Face a Raiders offense that hung 505 yards vs. the Chiefs last time out? Yawn. The Bills dealt with all that and won 34-14. They forced four turnovers, allowed Oakland to cross midfield just four times and are 5-2, the best start in their 17-year playoff drought.J-E-T-S CHOKE! CHOKE! CHOKE! The Jets, losers of three straight, have been outscored 76-20 in the fourth quarter after their 25-20 loss to the Falcons. They blew another fourth-quarter lead (it was one point, but it still counts). How: They allowed a sack that forced a 48-yard FG that was missed; allowed a 54-yard run that set up the go-ahead TD; and fumbled a punt that led to a field goal.The Vikings enter their bye week with a four-game winning streak after a 33-16 win vs. the Browns. It comes at a good time, too, because QB Case Keenum looks very ordinary when playing teams not called the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Vikings need to decide if Sam Bradford is healthy enough to return and if Teddy Bridgewater is healthy enough to be added to the 53-man roster.The smart-aleck line of the day goes to Fox analyst and Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw, who, after University of Miami product and Chargers WR Travis Benjamin muffed a punt against the Patriots, recovered it at his 8-yard line, ran backward and was tackled in the end zone for a safety, quipped: "Got to wonder whether or not he graduated."Here is how you lose on the road vs. the Pats: Try to run kickoffs out of the end zone three times and fail to reach the 25 each time. Have two TDs called back by penalties. Give up a safety on a punt return. Miss a 51-yard FG. Okay, that's being picky. But those miscues undermined a good job by a Chargers defense that held the Pats to one TD and four FGs.The Colts turned in their best offensive showing in weeks in a 24-23 loss to the Bengals. They controlled the ball for 33:13 and had 331 yards of offense, including 115 on the ground. QB Jacoby Brissett passed for two TDs and took a six-point lead into the fourth quarter. But he threw another late INT, his third this season in the fourth quarter or OT. This one was returned for the winning score.The 49ers are off to the first 0-8 start in team history. They lost seven players to injury during their 33-10 loss in Philadelphia. They finished the game with five healthy offensive linemen, several of whom were playing out of position. The good news: They are neck and neck with the Browns in the race for the first pick in the draft, so they have that going for them, which is nice.Steelers WR Martavis Bryant, who told the media that if he didn't become a bigger factor in the offense, he wanted out of Pittsburgh, might get his wish. The bag-packing wish. He was inactive for Sunday night's game against the Lions, and with the trade deadline looming Tuesday, well, it's easy to connect the dots.Raise your hand if you had Texans rookie QB Deshaun Watson setting the record for most TD pass in the first seven games of a career. The kid out of Clemson has 19 after throwing four in a 38-14 loss at Seattle. Kurt Warner threw 18 in his first seven games in 1999 (he finished with 41). Watson went toe-to-toe with Russell Wilson, passing for 402 yards, while Wilson passed for 452 and four TDs. The difference: The rookie threw three picks to Wilson's one.RB Ezekiel Elliott played Sunday with the words "Feed Zeke" on his cleats. The Cowboys did that, giving him the ball 33 times in a 33-19 win at Washington. The result was 150 yards and two touchdowns. He had a third touchdown called back by a holding penalty. It was Zeke's third straight 100-yard rushing game, which is good news for the Cowboys. They could get even better news today with some clarity on the status of Elliott's six-game suspension. Speculation is he won't serve it until next season.Notable injuries: Bears TE Zach Miller is out for the season with a dislocated left knee suffered when he caught a touchdown pass that was eventually overturned by replay. 49ers LT Joe Staley suffered what was believed to be a fractured orbital bone and remained in Philadelphia when the 49ers flew home. Pats WR Chris Hogan was scheduled for an MRI exam today on his right shoulder, which was in a sling after the win against the Chargers.And lastly …• Colts RB Frank Gore became the ninth player to gain 17,000 yards from scrimmage for his career, NFL Research says. The first eight are in the Hall of Fame.• Chargers DE Joey Bosa has 19 sacks in his first 20 career games.• Not only did the Jets and Falcons end the first quarter tied at 7, they were also tied in total yards (81), passing yards (56) and rushing yards (25).• Melvin Gordon's 87-yard TD run against the Patriots was tied for the longest TD run in Chargers history (Paul Lowe, 1961) and the longest ever allowed by the Pats, ESPN Stats & Info says.• The Twitter post of the day goes to injured Browns All-Pro LT Joe Thomas, who, after the Browns took their first halftime lead of the season against the Vikings, tweeted, "Go Browns!! They're better without me!!" He was kidding.The Eagles have won seven of their first eight games for the first time since 2004, the season they went to the Super Bowl, after beating the hapless 49ers 33-10. QB Carson Wentz (above) passed for two more scores, giving him an NFL-leading 19. Five have been for at least 50 yards. The team record for touchdown passes of at least 50 yards is six. Speaking of 50, rookie kicker Josh Elliott has a team-record five field goals of at least 50 yards. … Though the Eagles are flying high, the loss of LT Jason Peters could be an issue. The 49ers used that to their advantage by blitzing Wentz. It worked, for the most part. Wentz threw the ball sooner than he wanted on several plays, was hit seven times and sacked three. If the 49ers' D could be that disruptive, what will happen when the Eagles face a stiffer challenge?Tom Brady is 7-0 against the Chargers' Philip Rivers after the Patriots' 21-13 victory, the fourth-most wins without a loss by a quarterback against another, postseason included. And because you're now wondering, Steve Bartkowski is atop the leaderboard, ESPN Stats & Info says. He was 9-0 against Archie Manning. … The Pats came away with the win in a game that featured one touchdown pass from Brady. It was one we've seen many times before: a 2-yard toss to TE Rob Gronkowski. The two have hooked up on 72 touchdown passes, the most by a QB-receiver combo since 2010, Gronk's rookie season.England has given us so much over the years. The Beatles and the Rolling Stones. James Bond and Harry Potter. Judi Dench. Downton Abbey. And we say thanks by sending them the Browns. Doesn't seem fair, does it? Hey, at least QB DeShone Kizer (above) didn't get benched, which was kind of a goal going into the game with the Vikings in London. But that didn't stop the Browns from joining the 1976 and 1977 Bucs, the '83 and '84 Oilers and the '93 and '94 Bengals as teams that began consecutive years 0-8.What do they tell defensive linemen who can't get to the QB? Get your hands in the air! Bengals DE Carlos Dunlap (above), who led all defensive linemen last year with 15 pass deflections, did it again against the Colts when he got his hand on a pass from Jacoby Brissett with a little more than 7 minutes to play. He plucked the ball out of the air and rumbled 16 yards for the winning TD in a 24-23 victory. It was the second pass defended this season for the ex-Gator, the 37th of his eight-year career and his second interception returned for a TD.
