||The Ravens' defense has allowed 98 points, projecting to 174 -- which would be the NFL's fewest since the institution of the 16-game season in 1978 ... K Matt Stover has 23 field goals, on pace for an NFL-record 41.
||WR Eric Moulds has 59 catches for 832 yards, putting him on pace for club records with 118 catches for 1,664 yards ... K Steve Christie has 67 points, projecting to 134 points -- which would be his third consecutive 100-point season.
||RB Corey Dillon has 738 rushing yards, which projects to a club-record 1,476 yards. Dillon can also become the 10th player in NFL history to rush for 1,000 yards in each of his first four seasons.
