|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:
In Week 5, New England quarterback TOM BRADY passed for 348 yards and three touchdowns in the Patriots’ win over Washington, and surpassed Pro Football Hall of Famer BRETT FAVRE (71,838) for the third-most career passing yards in NFL history.
With 18 passing yards on Thursday night, Brady (71,923) will surpass PEYTON MANNING (71,940) for second place on the all-time list.

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. Should the pair each reach the milestone, they would become the fastest and tied for the third-fastest quarterbacks in NFL history to reach 7,500 career passing yards.

With a passer rating of 100 or higher on Sunday at Cleveland (1:00 PM ET, FOX), Wilson would become the fourth player in NFL history with a passer rating of 100 or higher in each of his first six games of a season.

WINNING JIMMY: San Francisco quarterback JIMMY GAROPPOLO has 920 passing yards and seven touchdowns with a 99.4 passer rating in 2019 and has led the 49ers to their first 4-0 start since 1990. Garoppolo now owns a 12-2 record as a starting quarterback in the NFL.
With a win on Sunday at the Los Angeles Rams (4:05 PM ET, FOX), Garoppolo can become the eighth quarterback in the Super Bowl era with at least 13 wins in his first 15 career starts.

CMC 1,000: Carolina running back CHRISTIAN McCAFFREY had a season-high 237 scrimmage yards (176 rushing, 61 receiving) and three touchdowns (two rushing, one receiving) in Week 5 and leads the NFL in scrimmage yards through the first five weeks of the 2019 season (866).
With 134 scrimmage yards in London against Tampa Bay (9:30 AM ET, NFL Network), McCaffrey would join Pro Football Hall of Famers JIM BROWN (1963) and MARSHALL FAULK (2000) as the only players in NFL history with at least 1,000 scrimmage yards through their team’s first six games of a season.
The players with at least 1,000 scrimmage yards through their team’s first six games of a season in NFL history:
McCaffrey, who has at least 175 scrimmage yards in each of his past three games, needs 175 scrimmage against Tampa Bay to tie EDGERRIN JAMES (Weeks 7-10, 1999) for the longest streak of games with at least 175 scrimmage yards in NFL history.
