With a win against the New York Giants on "Thursday Night Football" (5:15 PM PT, Prime Video), Purdy will improve to 8-0 in his career as a starter, marking the third-most consecutive wins by a quarterback to begin his career since 1970. Only Ben Roethlisberger (15 consecutive wins to begin his career) and Mike Tomczak (10) had longer streaks.

Simpson (1975).

​Since Week 13 of the 2022 season, McCaffrey has scored a touchdown in 11 straight games, including the postseason. With a touchdown on Thursday night, he will become the fifth player since 1990 to record a touchdown in 12 consecutive games, including the postseason.
