AFTER THE BYE
A season-high six NFL teams are on byes during Week 10, and every club will have taken its week off by the end of Week 12. On Sunday, two teams coming off their byes meet in an NFC South clash when the ATLANTA FALCONS travel to play the NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (1:00 PM ET, FOX). Since the beginning of the 2011 season, only the BALTIMORE RAVENS, fresh off a post-bye win over the Patriots in Week 9, have a better record after the bye.
The NFL teams with the best winning percentages in the game following the bye since 2011:
|New Orleans Saints||6||2||0||.750|
ANOTHER ROOKIE QUARTERBACK MAKES STARTING DEBUT:
On Sunday when the BALTIMORE RAVENS meet the CINCINNATI BENGALS (1:00 PM ET, CBS), the Ravens (6-2) have an opportunity to match their best start in franchise history (7-2 in both 2006 and 2012). On the other sideline, quarterback RYAN FINLEY will make his first NFL start. Finley will become the sixth rookie to make his starting debut this season, joining Arizona’s KYLER MURRAY, Jacksonville’s GARDNER MINSHEW, Pittsburgh’s DEVLIN HODGES, the New York Giants’ DANIEL JONES and Washington’s DWAYNE HASKINS.
Through the first nine weeks, 110 of 135 overall games (81.5 percent) have featured at least one quarterback under the age of 27, the most at this point in a season in league history. In total, quarterbacks under age 27 have started 146 games and recorded 76 wins (52.1 percent), both the most starts and wins by quarterbacks under the age of 27 through the first nine weeks of a season since at least 1970.
