AFC North game day by the numbers
By Jamison Hensley
A look at the stats to remember for Sunday's games:
3 -- Straight games in which Pittsburgh wide receiver Antonio Brown has at least 70 yards receiving.
5 -- Straight games by the Steelers in which they have no more than two sacks, including playoffs. That’s tied for their longest such streak since the start of 2011 (two or fewer sacks in five straight games from Weeks 13-17 2010).
6 -- Number of wins by the Ravens under coach John Harbaugh in games following a Thursday game or a bye week. That's a perfect 6-0 record after the extra rest.
8 -- Catches by A.J. Green on passes thrown 15 yards or more on 16 targets. The rest of the Bengals’ wide receivers have four receptions on nine such targets.
9 -- Wins by the Steelers in their last 10 home games dating back to Week 16 2010. Only the Ravens (12-0) and Packers (12-1) have a better home record in that span.
10 -- Losses by the Bengals in their last 12 games against the Dolphins, including 1-6 at home.
10.1 -- Brandon Weeden's QBR for the season, which is three times lower than any other qualified quarterback. He's doing this while averaging nearly 42 pass attempts per game.
12 -- Wins by the Ravens in the 14 games in which Ray Rice has over 100 yards rushing.
13 -- Victories by Ben Roethlisberger in his last 14 games against the NFC at Heinz Field. He has thrown 18 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
27 -- Years since the Browns last won at the New York Giants.
28 -- Amount of points that the Ravens have outscored opponents in the first three quarters, the fourth-best in the NFL.
33 -- Average points by the Bengals in their three-game win streak.
