Alterraun Verner is helping Titans solve problems

Those 11 pick-sixes are more than twice as many as any other team. Six teams are tied with five during that span: the Broncos, Colts, Chargers, Rams, Titans and Redskins.

Indianapolis' Andrew Luck and Washington's Robert Griffin III will be forever linked as the top two picks in the 2012 draft. They are diametrically opposed in one statistical category this season.

Griffin's average passer rating has improved in each successive quarter — 50.7 in the first, 57.3 in the second, 91.7 in the third, and 112.5 in the fourth.

Luck's passer rating is at its lowest in the fourth quarter at 55.7, which is at least 45 points lower than it is in any other quarter. He has yet to throw a touchdown pass in the final period.

Regardless, Luck wouldn't trade this: His Colts are 4-1; the Redskins are 1-3.

Keep it down

Earlier this season, rollicking fans in Seattle carved out a spot in Guinness World Records by generating the "loudest crowd cheer at a sports stadium," a roar that exceeded 136.6 decibels.

Kansas City fans aim to break that mark Sunday when the Chiefs play host to the Oakland Raiders.

The upside? The company 3M, which is sponsoring the earsplitting effort at Arrowhead Stadium, will distribute 36,000 sets of free earplugs.
