    Here are a few factoid after week five that might only interest me, but I figured I would throw it out there:

    1.) Wes Welker only needs 21 yards and 17 receptions to be better than every receivers the Pats had in 2006 in every category. He already has more TDs than any receiver that year. I don't know if that speaks more about how awesome Welker is this year or how pathetic that receiving corp was in 2006.

    2.) As bad as the defense has been, the Pats have given up the fewest points per game than any team in the division. The Pats have given up 23.8 PPG, the Bills have given up 24 PPG, the Jets have given up 25 PPG, and the Dolphins have given up 26 PPG. Not that there are any good defenses in the division, but it may mean that yards for a defensive measure could be a bit overrated.

    3.) The Pats are 6th in rushing yards per game and 5th in yards per carry. Not bad for an one dimensional offense with no running game.

    4.) Jets are an average football team

    The combination of Brady-to-Welker, if considered by itself, would also be the 33rd ranking passing offense in the NFL—by a whopping 10 yards. (JAX has 750 yards versus Welker's 740.)

    As somebody pointed out in another thread, Welker has also outgained the entire NYJ wide receiver corps, by over 100 yards.

    Well, considering the Jets have three #1 WRs (at least in their own minds) that is impressive.

    I would imagine Welkers 5 game stats are as good as anyone has ever had. I'm pretty certain Bradys are as well.

    Yards, yes. Receptions, no—somebody had 47 in a five-game span a few years ago. (There was a Globe post about it earlier today.)
