  • Is Eifert the best red zone threat in the league? If not, he's certainly making a case for that title, as he's caught 10 of his 13 targets for nine touchdowns in that space. And one of those "incompletions" was his non-touchdown from Week 3. 20

  • Carr has thrown 11 touchdown passes over the last three weeks, a figure only matched by Drew Brees in that span, and Brees' total is buoyed by his seven-touchdown shellacking of the Giants two weeks ago. Carr's verging on every-week QB1 territory now. 4
