Week 9: Inside the numbers

A quick look at a few interesting numbers from the Week 9 games:

  • The Titans notched their 11th-straight regular season win, 19-16 over the Packers, tying for the longest win streak in franchise history. … In the loss, Donald Driver tied a Packers franchise record with a reception in his 103rd consecutive game, matching Sterling Sharpe. Driver finished with seven receptions for a season-high 136 yards and a touchdown (highlights).
  • The Bucs scored 27 of the game’s final 30 points to overcome a 21-point deficit in the 30-27 OT win over the Chiefs, marking the largest comeback in team history and the biggest lead blown by K.C. in a loss in Chiefs franchise history.
  • The NFL’s two winless teams entering Week 9 went in different directions. The Lions fell to 0-8 for first time since 2001, when they started 0-12. They’ve lost nine straight and 15 of the last 16 games. The Bengals defeated the Jaguars 21-19 for their first win of the season, avoiding their first 0-9 start since 1993.
