Streaks, etc.

 Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez is just the eighth player in NFL history with 100 touchdown receptions. Gonzalez (122 yards, 2 TDs) and the Saints’ Jimmy Graham (146 yards, 2 scores) are the first tight ends in NFL history to have at least 120 yards receiving and two TD catches in the same game.

 Wide receiver Marques Colston tied Deuce McAllister for the most touchdowns in Saints history with 55, all on receptions. Drew Brees has been the quarterback for all 55, tying the New Orleans duo for ninth place all time with the 49ers’ Joe Montana and Jerry Rice, and the Dolphins’ Dan Marino and Mark Duper.

 Antonio Gates caught his 80th touchdown pass as a Charger, one behind Lance Alworth’s franchise record.

 A.J. Green has a touchdown catch in eight straight games, tying T.J. Houshmandzadeh for the second-longest streak in Bengals history.

 Chris Johnson of the Titans became the first rusher to gain 100 yards against the Dolphins in the past 23 games. He finished with 126 yards on 23 carries.

 Rob Bironas set a Titans/Oilers record for most consecutive extra points without a miss, breaking Al Del Greco’s mark. Bironas has made 232 in a row.

 The Rams held out two starters — cornerback Janoris Jenkins and wide receiver Chris Givens — for an unspecified violation of team rules.

 The Buccaneers have scored 28 points or more in five consecutive games for the first time in franchise history.

 The Eagles have lost five straight games under coach Andy Reid for the first time in his 14 seasons.

Monday’s game

Kansas City (1-7) at Pittsburgh (5-3)

When, where: 8:30 p.m., at Heinz Field.

TV, radio: ESPN, WEEI (93.7).

Line: Steelers by 12½.

Last meeting: Steelers won, 13-9, in Week 12 last season.

Of note: After a messy start to the season, Pittsburgh has gotten back on track by going back to its strengths. The Steelers have won four of their last five games, and in those victories they’ve averaged 147 yards rushing and given up an average of 15.7 points. It also doesn’t hurt that Ben Roethlisberger is completing passes at a career-best rate of 67.1 percent. The Chiefs are halfway to potentially getting the No. 1 pick in the 2013 draft; wherever they select, their choice will likely end the current quarterback catastrophe in Kansas City — Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn have combined for 14 interceptions, 8 fumbles, and a 64.8 passer rating.
