BEARS: Punter Brad Maynard bested Pro Bowl-bound Todd Sauerbrun by averaging 44.5 yards to Sauerbrun's 40.3.

CARDINALS: For the second straight week the team changed its look, but it hasn't paid off with a win. Dec. 15, the players wore all white in a loss at St. Louis. Saturday, they wore red jerseys with red pants and lost to the 49ers.

COWBOYS: Dallas has not scored in the first three quarters the past two games.

EAGLES: Philadelphia has won 13 straight against NFC teams, including 11 this season.

FALCONS: Coach Dan Reeves won his 187th regular-season game, passing Chuck Knox for sixth on the career list. Up next is Chuck Noll at 193.

49ERS: San Francisco extended its NFL record of scoring in consecutive games to 435.

GIANTS: The team has scored 81 points the past two weeks, the most it has scored in back-to-back games since Sept. 29-Oct. 6, 1968.

LIONS: Detroit completed another winless season on the road, where it has lost 16 straight over the past two seasons. The Lions haven't won a road game since beating the Jets 10-7 on Dec. 17, 2000.

PACKERS: Green Bay's last shutout was Sept. 24, 2001, 37-0 over Washington. ... Only the Bears, with 13, have more than the Packers' 11 undefeated regular seasons at home. ... Brett Favre's 114 yards passing were the fifth-lowest in his career and his 39.2 quarterback rating was his sixth worst.

PANTHERS: Al Wallace, the replacement for suspended defensive end Julius Peppers, had two sacks Sunday.

RAMS: Marshall Faulk needs 90 yards rushing against the 49ers for his sixth straight 1,000-yard season.

REDSKINS: Coach Steve Spurrier met before the game with former President Bush, a guest of Houston owner Bob McNair. "We talked a little golf," Spurrier said.

SAINTS: Aaron Brooks threw his team-record 27th touchdown, New Orleans set a team record for points in a season (426) and kicker John Carney set a club record for points in a season (124).

SEAHAWKS: Offensive tackle Jerry Wunsch, a former Buc, moved to guard to replace Floyd Wedderburn (foot).

VIKINGS: Gary Anderson will assume kickoff duties in the final game after Hayden Epstein tore the ACL in his left knee covering a kickoff.
