A look at Week 6 through some of the most notable numbers of the week, with an assist from George Li of the NFL Network research desk:
The Patriots recorded their 23rd consecutive home win with Tom Terrific at quarterback, which puts him ahead of John Elway (22) for the second-longest streak in NFL history. The leader in this category is still active, but can’t extend his streak. Brett Favre had 25 consecutive home wins from 1995-98 for the Packers.
Bye week advantage: The Patriots won their eighth straight game following a bye week, tied for the second longest streak in the NFL since 1990. The Patriots improved to 9-2 overall in games following a bye week under Bill Belichick.
The Ravens are now 0-6 all-time against the Patriots during the regular season, including 0-4 in New England.
Devin Hester broke off an 89-yard punt return for a touchdown, his 9th career punt return TD, which ties Brian Mitchell for the second-most all-time behind Eric Metcalf (10). Hester now has 13 combined punt/kickoff returns for touchdowns, also tied with Mitchell for the NFL record.
Seahawks WR Mike Williams had 10 receptions for 123 yards, both career highs, and recorded his first career 100-yard game.
The Texans outscored the Chiefs 21-7 in the fourth quarter and have scored 30-plus points in all four wins this season.
Chiefs LB Mike Vrabel’s 2-yard touchdown reception was the 12th of his career (including playoffs), tied for the second-most in NFL history by a defensive player. Vrabel is tied with DB Woodley Lewis and DE Carl Mulleneax, trailing DB Wilbur Moore (17).
All three of the Packers’ losses this season have been by three points.
Eli Manning passed for 177 yards and 2 TD, and now has 20,123 career pass yards to join Phil Simms as the only Giants players to reach 20,000 yards.
The Lions suffered their 24th consecutive road loss, which ties for the longest streak in NFL history. It’s a repeat performance, though, for the Lions, who also had 24 consecutive road losses from 2001-03.
The Eagles won their 22nd straight game when leading at halftime, good for the longest active streak in the NFL.
Before he left with a concussion, DeSean Jackson had a 31-yard rushing TD and a 34-yard receiving TD. It’s the second time in his career he’s recorded both a rushing and receiving TD in the same game.
Picking up the slack for Jackson, Jeremy Maclin set career highs in receptions (7), yards (159) and touchdowns (2). Here’s the highlight of his 83-yard touchdown from Kevin Kolb.
Hines Ward had five receptions for 54 yards and a TD, his 183rd consecutive game with a reception, which ties Art Monk for fourth-longest streak in NFL history. Ward and Monk trail Jerry Rice (274), Marvin Harrison (190) and Terrell Owens (185).
Phil Dawson has 235 career field goals, breaking Hall of Famer Lou Groza’s franchise record.
The Rams led the Chargers 7-0 at the end of the first quarter and have outscored opponents 34-3 in first quarter this season.
The Chargers’ 2-4 start is their worst start through six games since 2003 when they started 1-5 and finished 4-12.
Chris Ivory had himself a career day, rushing 15 times for 158 yards, both career highs.
Ronde Barber made his 172nd consecutive start, passing Hall of Famer Dick LeBeau for the longest streak in NFL history by a cornerback.
LaDainian Tomlinson had two touchdowns, his 38th career game with two-plus rushing TDs, the most in NFL history.
Favre was sacked three times and has now been sacked 516 times in his career, tied with Elway for most all-time.
Randy Moss had 5 receptions for 55 yards and now has 944 career receptions, passing Monk for fourth all-time.
Adrian Peterson finished with 73 yards and a touchdown, and now has 5,037 rushing yards in 51 career games, tied for the fifth fastest in NFL history to reach that mark.
