Sky Sports Cricket statistician – and big Buffalo Bills fan – Benedict Bermange dives into the 2021 NFL season to pick out the best stats from each week…

Trevon Diggs of the Dallas Cowboys intercepted his seventh pass of the season in their 35-29 victory over the New England Patriots. He is also just the second player after Brian Russell of the Vikings in 2003 to have at least one interception in each of their team’s first six games in a season.

Trevon and Buffalo Bills receiver Stefon Diggs became the first pair of brothers to score an offensive touchdown and a defensive touchdown in the same NFL week since Vernon (tight end, San Francisco 49ers) and Vontae Davis (cornerback, Miami Dolphins) in Week Four of the 2009 season.

In London, the Jacksonville Jaguars snapped their 20-game losing streak with a 23-20 triumph over the Dolphins as Matthew Wright became the first kicker in NFL history to successfully convert more than one field goal of at least 50 yards in the last four minutes of the fourth quarter in a single game.

Trevor Lawrence earned his first NFL win in the same game and became the first rookie quarterback to win an NFL game in London – they had been 0-5 before this week.

Despite still being plagued by turnovers, the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Washington Football Team 31-13 for their eighth successive victory against them dating back to 1992. The only time the Chiefs have ever lost to Washington was in the 1983 season when the opposing starting quarterbacks were Bill Kenney and Joe Theismann. The only longer current winning streak by one team over another in terms of years lapsed is Philadelphia’s 11-0 record against the New York Jets, which dates all the way back to September 1973.
