No other season through six weeks has produced more games decided by seven-or-fewer points than 2019. This year, 51 of 92 games (55.4 percent) have been decided by seven-or-fewer points, including nine of 14 games in Week 6. This season also is tied for the most one-point games through Week 6 since the 1970 merger.
Quarterbacks have rushed for 31 touchdowns, surpassing 2002 (28) for the most rushing touchdowns by quarterbacks through the first six weeks of a season since 1970. In Week 6, quarterbacks totaled 10 rushing touchdowns, surpassing Week 13 of the 2015 season (nine) for the most in a single week since 1970.
Week 7 begins Thursday (8:20 PM ET, FOX/NFLN/AMAZON) at Empower Field at Mile High, where Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs meet Joe Flacco and the Denver Broncos. With 2,104 passing yards, Mahomes is on pace to break the single-season NFL record held by former Denver quarterback Peyton Manning (5,477 in 2013).
