Streaks, etc.

 The first two Colts quarterbacks to run for two TDs in a game were Ricky Turner on Dec. 4, 1988, and Bert Jones on Oct. 20, 1974.

 The Cardinals haven’t won at Minnesota since 1977, when they played in St. Louis and the Vikings played outdoors.

 Vikings RB Adrian Peterson tied Robert Smith’s franchise record with his 29th career 100-yard rushing game.

 The Vikings sacked John Skelton seven times, giving the Cardinals an NFL-high 35 allowed this season.

 The Bills and Titans combined for 21 points on two plays from scrimmage and a kickoff return in just 30 seconds. It was the fastest three-score span since the Raiders and Patriots scored three times in 26 seconds on Dec. 14, 2008, according to STATS LLC.

 In three career games against Buffalo, Titans RB Chris Johnson has run for 480 yards and six touchdowns.

 In Buffalo’s four losses, QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown 10 TD passes and nine interceptions. In the Bills’ three wins, he has five TDs and no INTs.

 Rams rookie Chris Givens had a 56-yard reception, his fourth straight game with a 50-yard-plus reception.

 Saints QB Drew Brees led TD drives of 80, 80, 79, and 72 on consecutive possessions in the opening half.

 The Steelers improved to 12-2 at Paul Brown Stadium.

Monday’s game

Detroit (2-3) at Chicago (4-1)

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

TV: ESPN.

Line: Bears by 6½.

Last season: Bears won at home, 37-13, in Week 10, while the Lions prevailed in Week 5, 24-13, at Ford Field.

Of note: The Lions, who have lost 7 of 8 to Chicago, are trying to get back in the NFC North race before it’s too late. Lions QB Matthew Stafford leads the NFL’s second-ranked passing offense, but he faces the league’s No. 3 defense. Stafford had a starring role in last year’s blood feud at Soldier Field, as he grabbed CB D.J. Moore by the helmet and threw him to ground — which was preceded by Bears QB Jay Cutler having his helmet ripped off by Ndamukong Suh. Chicago RB Matt Forte, averaging 4.7 yards per carry, is nearly 100 percent after a bye week.
