Fifty-six people signed the Declaration of Independence, but not all of them were Americans. Eight were British—of those eight, two were from England, two from Scotland, two from Ireland, one from Northern Ireland and one from Wales.

***Reminder – these facts are as of Sunday night and do not include MNF.***

1.) Rob Gronkowski leads the league in touchdown receptions (4).

2.) Per ESPN: Zach Wilson was the fourth rookie QB to throw four picks and 0 TDs in a game in the last 20 years (the previous two to do this were the Jets’ Sam Darnold and Mark Sanchez).

3.) The Ravens outrushed the Chiefs 251 to 62 in Sunday night’s win. Lamar Jackson is currently third in the NFL in rushing yards through two weeks at 193.

4.) Lamar Jackson ALSO leads the league in Rushing Touchdowns (3) and Fumbles (2).

5.) Baker Mayfield, without two of his top wide receivers in Week 2, had a 90.5% completion percentage.

6.) The Chargers have punted the ball just TWICE this year.

7.) Four QBs suffered injuries yesterday. The heat index was high in many areas of America.

8.) The longest play Miami had on offense versus Buffalo was 18 yards (Tua Tagovailoa was one of the injured QBs yesterday). On defense, however, they have a takeaway in 24 consecutive games, the longest active streak in the league.

9.) New Orleans, Baltimore, Jacksonville, San Francisco and Detroit are 100% at scoring touchdowns in the red zone. Green Bay is at 0%.

10.) Philadelphia is committing 11 penalties per game, the most in the NFL—Indianapolis is committing the fewest (2.5).
