Sky Sports Cricket statistician - and big Buffalo Bills fan - Benedict Bermange dives into Week Three of the 2022 season to pick out the best stats the NFL has to offer, including yet another prime-time defeat for New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones and an end to the Carolina Panthers' losing streak...

The Carolina Panthers' 22-14 win over the New Orleans Saints snapped their nine-game losing streak, which was the longest current streak in the NFL. It was their first home win since Week Two of last season - 371 days earlier. They are now 10-0 under Matt Rhule when allowing 16 or fewer points in a game, while they are 1-25 over the same time period when they have allowed at least 17 points.

The Chicago Bears rushed for 281 yards in their 23-20 victory over the Houston Texans, the most they have had in a game since they racked up 283 in Week Five of the 1984 season. It is the most rushing yards in a game by any team since the Baltimore Ravens rushed for 404 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17 of the 2020 season.

The Dolphins also snapped their seven-game losing streak against the Bills - the longest in team history.

The Philadelphia Eagles' win over the Washington Commanders was just the second in NFL history to end in a 24-8 score, the only other being the Houston Oilers' victory over the Lions in Week Six of the 1975 season. Coincidentally, the Denver Broncos' 11-10 win over the San Francisco 49ers is just the second NFL game to end in that score, after the Pittsburgh Steelers' 11-10 victory over the San Diego Chargers in Week 11 of the 2008 season.
