  • The Chiefs currently have Patrick Mahomes (QB1), Kareem Hunt (RB2), Tyreek Hill (WR3) and Travis Kelce (TE1) all ranked in the top three at their position in fantasy points scored this season. Since 2000, no team has had a player finish in the Top 3 in fantasy points at all four positions (QB, RB, WR, TE). The last team to do so through the first nine weeks of the season? The 2017 Chiefs, who had Alex Smith (QB2), Kareem Hunt (RB3), Tyreek Hill (WR3) and Travis Kelce (TE1) all in the top three at their position. 9

  • Sunday Night will feature familiar foes in the Cowboys and Eagles, but their place in the standings will be foreign to each team. The Eagles and Cowboys are currently second and third in the NFC East standings, respectively. It will be the first meeting in the Prescott-Wentz era that neither team will be in first place in the NFC East entering the game. In fact, the teams have been in first and second place in the division in three of the previous four meetings. 8

  • Le'Veon Bell's deadline to report is rapidly approaching, but James Conner has filled in nicely. Conner is on pace for 2,170 scrimmage yards this season after Bell had 1,946 last season. The only time a team had two different players record 1,900+ scrimmage yards in consecutive seasons was the 1998-99 Colts, when Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk recorded 2,227 scrimmage yards in 1998, and Edgerrin James had 2,139 in the 1999 season. 7
