Hopkins and Brown combined for 10 catches (on 14 targets) for 133 yards and a touchdown in the loss to the Chargers. .

Even with both of his top receivers in the lineup, Murray averaged just 6.6 yards per attempt (slightly above his season average of 6.4).

Jackson completed just 46.4% of his passes in the red zone, although he has 13 touchdown passes -- but only six since Week 4. .

Buffalo's 19th in pass yards per game allowed and 13th in passing touchdowns allowed, so White is a more-than-welcome addition. .

Offense has to get Chase Claypool going: Claypool had his best game in his short time with the Bears, finishing with two catches for 51 yards in a game where Justin Fields didn't play.

The 51 receiving yards amassed his output through his first three games.

Claypool only had just 5 catches for 32 yards in his first three games with the Bears (7 catches for 83 yards overall).

Higgins had 26 catches for 371 yards and two touchdowns over the last four games, averaging 14.3 yards per catch. .

He had 16 catches for 262 yards and a touchdown over the last two games (16.4 yards per catch), Chase-like numbers.

Brissett wasn't great in Sunday's win (23 of 37, 216 yards, touchdown and interception), but he was 8 of 14 for 116 yards with a touchdown in the fourth quarter and overtime (108.0 rating). .

Schultz had his third touchdown in the last three weeks, while having 13 catches for 107 yards in that span. .

Patrick Surtain is in a slump: Surtain is one of the best coverage corners in the game, but his last two games have been far from elite.

In Sunday's loss, Surtain was targeted five times and allowed three catches for 77 yards and a touchdown (104.2 rating when targeted).

The week prior, Surtain allowed five catches for 106 yards and two touchdowns (118.8 rating).

These were the only two games Surtain has allowed over an 80 passer rating all year.

Surtain has allowed three touchdowns passes the last two weeks (zero the previous eight). .

Pierce has 15 carries for 16 yards over the last two games, and the Texans have averaged just 4.5 points over the first three quarters in that stretch. .

He has 788 rushing yards and four touchdowns, but the yards per carry average slipped to 4.4.

All Pittsburgh did was rush for 172 yards and average 4.8 yards per carry against Indianapolis -- a team that had allowed just 3.9 yards per carry on the year. .

Benny Snell didn't have a carry all year, yet had 12 carries for 62 yards and a touchdown.

Sunday was just the second time in Jaguars history they won a game when trailing by seven-plus points in the final two minutes of regulation (first since 1996), all thanks to how Lawrence played.

Over the last three games, Lawrence has completed 28 of 36 passes for 272 yards and three touchdowns in the fourth quarter (125.9 rating).

Herbert rushed for a season-high 38 yards on four carries (9.5 yards per carry), including a 23-yard run that helped set up a final quarter where he finished 13 of 17 for 84 yards and a touchdown -- including a two-point conversion that set the Chargers up for a crucial win. 

Herbert had 536 rushing yards and eight touchdowns in his first two seasons, averaging 4.5 yards per carry

This season, he has just 128 yards and no rushing touchdowns (3.6 yards per carry)

Atwell had just two catches for 23 yards Sunday, but caught both his targets. 

Kirk Cousins can perform in prime time after all: The Vikings really shut down the "Kirk Cousins can't play in prime time" narrative, as the quarterback went 30 of 37 for 299 yards with three touchdowns and one interception (116.5 rating) in a win over a Patriots defense that is one of the best in the league. 

Cousins is just 11-18 as a starter in night games in his career, but he avenged the three-interception performance in a Week 2 loss to the Eagles (which was a night game)

He still only has an 81.4 passer rating with four touchdowns and four interceptions in two night games this season, but Cousins got rid of some prime time demons in Week 12. 

The offense has averaged just 253 yards per game and 12.5 points per game over the last four weeks, numbers no where near good enough to win games in the NFL. 

Barkley has just 26 carries for 61 yards over his last two games, as defenses have certainly zeroed in on stopping him -- and the Giants offense in the process

Gary Brightwell was the back paired with Barkley in this set, having five carries for 31 yards late in the game

Just ask Elijah Moore, who finished with two catches for 64 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over Chicago. 

Prior to last week, Moore had just three catches for 28 yards since Week 5 and had a public disagreement with the franchise. 

The 49ers allowed just 258.8 yards per game over the last four contests, including just 59.3 rushing yards per game. 

The 49ers rank first in points allowed, yards allowed, passing touchdowns allowed, rushing yards allowed, yards per carry allowed and points per possession

The defensive success in midseason was fools gold: Seattle's defense was torched by the Raiders offense, as Las Vegas amassed 576 yards against the unit (293 passing, 283 rushing)

The Seahawks have allowed 497.5 yards per game over the last two games -- both losses -- and an astonishing 22 rushing yards per game. 

The defense that allowed 282.8 yards per game in the four contests prior to Munich is long gone

While caught all nine of his targets for 45 yards while Godwin caught 12 passes (on 13 targets) for 110 yards and a touchdown

Derrick Henry had just three carries for seven yards in the red zone, but most importantly -- no touchdowns scored

The stout run defense hits a snag: Washington's run defense has been excellent over the last several weeks, allowing just 68.8 rushing yards per game over the last five games -- a huge reason the Commanders won 4 of 5 heading into Sunday. 

The Falcons are one of the best running teams in the NFL, finishing with 167 yards against a Commanders run defense that allowed just 171 yards total in the three games prior
