 The Broncos’ Wes Welker and Anquan Boldin of the 49ers both eclipsed 800 career receptions, the 27th and 28th players to reach the milestone.

 Matthew Stafford recorded his 13th game with at least three TD passes, breaking Bobby Layne’s Lions record.

 LeSean McCoy’s 630 yards rushing and 871 total yards from scrimmage are the most by an Eagles player through the first six games of a season.

 The Eagles joined the 2007 Patriots and 1983 Chargers as the only teams to gain at least 400 yards in each of their first six games.

 The Ravens had won 13 straight at home against NFC opponents.

Monday’s game


When: 8:30 p.m. (ESPN)

Where: Qualcomm Stadium.

Line: Colts by 1½.

Last meeting: Chargers won, 36-17, in 2010.

Of note: Indy’s Andrew Luck (7 TDs, 94.1 rating) and San Diego’s Philip Rivers (13 TDs, 110.6 rating) have been arguably the AFC’s top two quarterbacks behind Peyton Manning. Rivers’s 73.7 completion percentage is on pace to shatter his own team record of 66.0 (set in 2010). Both teams posted season-low rushing totals last week — the Colts gaining 109 against Seattle (3.7 per carry) and the Chargers just 36 (1.9 average) against Oakland.
