WATSON'S WIZARDRY: Houston rookie quarterback DESHAUN WATSON became the first player in NFL history with at least 400 passing yards (402), four touchdown passes (four) and 50 rushing yards (67) in a single game in the Texans' Week 8 loss at Seattle.

Watson has passed for at least three touchdowns and recorded a 100+ passer rating in four consecutive games, the longest streak by a rookie quarterback in NFL history. On Sunday, Watson can become the fifth different quarterback in NFL history with at least three touchdown passes and a 100+ passer rating in five consecutive games.

JAGUARS ON THE PROWL: The Jacksonville Jaguars, led by defensive ends YANNICK NGAKOUE (2.5 sacks) and CALAIS CAMPBELL (two), recorded 10 sacks in the team's 27-0 win at Indianapolis in Week 7. Jacksonville enters Week 9 following a bye last week.

With seven sacks on Sunday against Cincinnati, Jacksonville, who leads the NFL with 33 sacks and ties for third in the league with 10 interceptions, would become the second team in the Super Bowl era with at least 40 sacks and 10 interceptions in its first eight games of a season. The 1967 Oakland Raiders, who advanced to Super Bowl II, are the only other team to accomplish the feat in the Super Bowl era.

LANDMARK FOR LANDRY: Miami wide receiver JARVIS LANDRY ranks second in the NFL with 50 catches this season. 

With five catches against Oakland on Sunday Night Football, Landry, who has 338 receptions since entering the league in 2014, would surpass ANQUAN BOLDIN (342) for the most catches by a player in his first four seasons in NFL history.

DOMINANT DEMARCUS: Dallas defensive end DEMARCUS LAWRENCE recorded a sack in the Cowboys' 33-19 win at Washington in Week 8.

Lawrence, who leads the NFL with 10.5 sacks, has recorded a sack in all seven of Dallas' games this season. With a sack against Kansas City on Sunday, Lawrence would become the fourth player to record a sack in each of his team's first eight games to start a season since the individual sack became an official statistic in 1982.

Minnesota's EVERSON GRIFFEN, who is on a bye in Week 9, has recorded at least one sack in each of the Vikings' first eight games of the 2017 season.
