According to Andrew Siciliano of NFL Network, Carolina Panthers cornerback Josh Norman has allowed exactly nine receptions for 89 yards to the likes of DeAndre Hopkins, Mike Evans, Dez Bryant, Julio Jones and TY Hilton -- COMBINED. Norman is one of the best cover men in the league, but he'll be put to the test by New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in Week 15.

With LeGarrette Blount (pictured) now out for the season with a hip injury, the New England Patriots will be without their two best RBs for the remainder of the year. Incredibly, Blount and Dion Lewis have combined to rush for 937 of the Patriots’ 1,178 yards in 2015 (80 percent). New England will have to overcome this loss in the coming weeks as they look to find a replacement for both players. Brandon Bolden is third on the team with 110 yards rushing, but he only averages 3.1 yards per carry.

Wilson has feasted in 17 career starts versus AFC opponents (including two Super Bowls), throwing for 35 touchdowns versus six interceptions while compiling a 110.1 passer rating. His hot streak should continue versus the Cleveland Browns this weekend.

The Minnesota Vikings scored 10 points in the final two minutes of their Week 8 trip to Soldier Field, as they came back to beat the Chicago Bears 23-20 in regulation. The Bears have a chance to avenge that loss this weekend, when they travel to TCF Bank Stadium to take on the Vikings for the second time this season. Minnesota hasn't swept Chicago since 2007.

The Houston Texans have never won in Indianapolis. Houston has lost 13 straight games in the Circle City, but a win Sunday against the Colts will go a long way toward making up for the years of frustration. The Texans can grab sole possession of first in the AFC South with a victory and put themselves in prime position for a playoff spot. A win won't come easy as starting quarterback Brian Hoyer is sidelined with his second concussion of the season. Backup T.J. Yates, who has led Houston to two wins this year, will get the start.

The Pittsburgh Steelers held the ball 11:34 longer than the Cincinnati Bengals in last week’s 33-20 victory. If they dominate time of possession again on Sunday, it’ll mean they are moving the ball against the Denver Broncos’ top-ranked defense, leaving quarterback Brock Osweiler with less time to keep up with Pittsburgh’s high-powered offense.

The San Francisco 49ers have allowed 95 points in six home games, which translates to a league-low 15.8 points per contest. It's a different story on the road, where the 49ers have surrendered 220 points (an average of 31.4 ppg). They host the Cincinnati Bengals (with backup QB AJ McCarron) at Levi's Stadium in Week 15.

In 2014, the Buffalo Bills led the NFL with 54 sacks -- five more than any other team. This season, their pass rush has dropped off dramatically. They’ve only recorded 19 sacks and are 30th in the league in that department. What’s most surprising about that is the fact that it’s mostly the same personnel up front, and Rex Ryan -- a defensive-minded coach -- is the head coach. If the Bills continue to struggle to bring down the QB once again, they’ll be in for a long game against the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

The Arizona Cardinals' six road wins are tied for the most in franchise history. They can break that record by winning at Philadelphia on Sunday night. Playing away from home has not fazed the NFC West-leading Cardinals, who lead the league in points (222) and touchdowns (27) on the road.

With Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson on injured reserve, the New Orleans Saints turned to Tim Hightower. Not only did Hightower get the start, but he carried the ball a whopping 28 times for 85 yards and a touchdown. It’s obvious that the Saints have no issue giving a high volume of carries to Hightower. Expect him to be their workhorse against the Detroit Lions on Monday night.
