NFL 2014: What To Look For Week 7
Here's what to look for during Week 7 of the NFL 2014 Regular Season
Quarterbacks have been historically efficient through Week 6 of the 2014 season, combining for a league-wide passer rating of 91.0 and a completion percentage of 63.3. Both are on pace to be the highest of any season in NFL history and would surpass records set in 2013 (86.0 passer rating; 61.2 completion percentage).
The league-wide yards-per-pass attempt average, currently at 7.27, is also on pace to be the highest of any season in the Super Bowl era.
The NFL seasons with the highest league-wide yards-per-pass attempt average in the Super Bowl era (since 1966):

Historic Peyton Manning
Last week, quarterback Peyton Manning threw for three touchdowns in the Broncos' 31-17 win over the New York Jets.
Manning now has 506 career touchdown passes and with three touchdowns against San Francisco on Sunday Night Football, he will surpass BRETT FAVRE (508) for the most career touchdown passes in NFL history.
The players with the most career touchdown passes in NFL history:

No Place Like Home
The New England Patriots host their first division opponent of the year when they face the New York Jets on Thursday Night Football.
The Patriots have won 15 consecutive home games against division opponents. With a win against the Jets, New England will tie the DALLAS COWBOYS (1991-95) and MIAMI DOLPHINS (1971-75) for the third-longest such streak since 1970.

Dallas running back De Marco Murray has at least 100 rushing yards in each of his first six games, tied with Pro Football Hall of Famer Jim Brown for the longest such streak in NFL history to begin a season.
With at least 100 rushing yards against the New York Giants on Sunday, Murray can become the first player in NFL history to do so in at least seven games to begin a season.
