In this edition of Top-10 Stats of the Week, New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones makes history in a statement win against the Buffalo Bills, Big Ben has a little magic left in him, and college powerhouses Alabama and Michigan show why they're elite. Speaking of Michigan, how is Tom Brady 44 years old? One more thing: the Nets sit atop the East, but they should feel concerned.

3 -- Mac Jones' three pass attempts in the Patriots' 14-10 win over the Bills on Monday night were the fewest by a winning team in more than three decades.

10 -- The Bills scored a measly 10 points against the Patriots' stout defense. Through their first 11 games this season, their offense averaged 30 points.

17 -- The Pittsburgh Steelers scored 17 points in the fourth quarter of their win over the archrival Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. They scored only 13 points in their previous seven quarters.

3 -- On Saturday night, the Michigan Wolverines held the Iowa Hawkeyes to just three points in the Big Ten championship game. This was the Hawkeyes' fewest points scored in more than 700 days. An incredible stat, considering that Iowa entered this conference title game as the nation's 13th-ranked team.

6,000 -- Speaking of Michigan, congratulations to them! More than 6,000 days had passed since the school won its last Big Ten crown, back in 2004. Wolverines quarterback Cade McNamara was only four years old at the time.

24 -- Alabama, the reigning national champions, scored 24 points during the second quarter of their blowout win over undefeated Georgia in the SEC title game on Saturday. Entering the contest, the Bulldogs' defense held ranked opponents to an average of seven points per game.

6 -- Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady now has six games this season in which he's thrown for four-plus touchdowns. In his final year with the Patriots, Brady didn't produce a single game with four passing scores.

4 -- The longest winning streak in the NFC doesn't belong to the Buccaneers, Green Bay Packers, or Arizona Cardinals. Right now, it happens to belong to the Washington Football Team, which have won four straight games. That's as many wins as Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks have this entire year.

0 -- The lowly Houston Texans were shutout by the Indianapolis Colts, 31-0, at home on Sunday. Speaking of zero, the team officially has no chance to make the AFC playoffs. Right now, they're the only team mathematically eliminated.

0-6 -- The championship-hungry Brooklyn Nets are 0-6 against the top-eight teams in the NBA. They're 16-1 against everyone else. Not encouraging news.
