THE PATRIOT WAY: The NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS enter Week 6 as the AFC’s only unbeaten team (5-0) and with the top defense in the NFL, ranking first in fewest points allowed per game (6.8) and fewest yards allowed per game (238.4). Their 34 total points allowed through five games are the fewest points allowed through a team’s first five games since the 2005 INDIANAPOLIS COLTS (29 points) and the fifth-fewest since 1970.​

By allowing 12 or fewer points against the New York Giants on Thursday Night Football (8:20 PM ET, FOX/NFL Network/Amazon), the Patriots would rank in the top five for the fewest points allowed through a team’s first six games since 1970.

The teams with the fewest points allowed through their first six games of a season since 1970:

TEAM SEASON POINTS ALLOWED
Atlanta Falcons 1977 32

THE FUTURE IS HERE: This Sunday, Kansas City quarterback PATRICK MAHOMES and Houston quarterback DESHAUN WATSON face each other for the first time in their careers, when the Chiefs welcome the Texans to Arrowhead Stadium (1:00 PM ET, CBS). Entering Week 6, Mahomes leads the NFL in passing yards (1,831), while Watson ranks second in the league in passer rating (115.9). The pair are tied for second in the league in touchdown passes with 11.

Mahomes, who has 7,212 passing yards in 22 career games, and Watson, who has 7,228 passing yards in 28 career games, can each reach 7,500 career passing yards on Sunday.
