Interesting Tidbits

Demario Davis makes his 125th consecutive regular season appearance, which is the highest streak in the NFL among all linebackers. Buffalo's Lorenzo Alexander is the next highest at 92.

Cam Jordan enters the game with 13.5 sacks and will appear in his 141st consecutive regular season game. He needs just 4 sacks this season to set the single season franchise record that is currently held by La'Roi Glover (2000) and Pat Swilling (1991) at 17. Jordan's production this season ties him at 5th-most with Rickey Jackson (1992) and Charlie Clemons (2001). Wayne Martin (15.5 in 1992) and Pat Swilling (16.5 in 1989) are currently ahead of Jordan. Alvin Kamara

With 56 receiving yards on Sunday, Kamara would become the third player with 500+ rushing & 500+ receiving yards in each of their first three seasons in NFL history. He'd join Herschel Walker (1986-1988) and Abner Hayes (1960-1962).
