What is the record for most consecutive weeks that had at least one tie each?

Since 2016, the most consecutive weeks has been two and it's happened twice. The last time it happened before yesterday was 2016. On 10/23, Seattle and Arizona played to a 6-6 tie, followed by Washington and Cincinnati a week later playing to a 27-27 draw. Prior to that since 1974, there has been no consecutive weeks with tie scores. Before 1974, it's not certain as I do not find any records of such.

Team doctors have medically cleared Carson Wentz for contact, so he will return to the field for Philadelphia's next game against Indianapolis.

Atlanta gives 3 against the Saints Sunday. Deion Jones and Devonta Freeman are out for the Falcons. T'won't be easy against Brees.

1971 is the last time we had ties in Weeks 1 and 2, so there's that.

Good call on that. Miami-Denver and Atlanta-Los Angeles.

Just heard: Maroon 5 is doing the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show.

Maroon 5 is a decent choice, they're a pretty popular act and there's not many other hot artists right now that would probably make a better show. I can't see them having Drake do the halftime show for one example.

As a Jets fan I'm hoping tonight isn't the night Cleveland finally wins. They're favored and I am concerned just because of the rookie Darnold on a short week and Cleveland looking good enough to win in their first two games. I think the Jets will win in a close game though.

Maroon 5 means I will not watch the halftime show. Awful group.


Another bad Thursday night game but what do you expect with the teams involved?

Cleveland wins their first game since ‘16.

Atlanta’s task against New Orleans becomes more daunting as OL Adam Levitre is out for the year (tricep).

New Orleans prevents a third straight week of a tie ending with. 43-37 overtime win against Atlanta. Matt Ryan throws a career high 5 TDs (rookie wideout Calvin Ridley caught three of them).

Oh, what a week! The Sunday night game had Matt Patricia beating his old boss, Bill Belichick, in Detroit. There's no better first win than against the Patriots, and it's hopefully the first of many wins for the Lions this season.

By many, do you mean 4 more? I see them going 5-11. Monday was a mirage.

Matt Ryan puts up mad numbers again, but they're rather pointless if the Falcons don't win. They get beat by Andy Dalton's last minute heroics. Cincinnati prevails, 37-36. (It's not getting any easier. The Falcons travel to Pittsburgh next week.)
