" BOSTON (CBS) — We’re through the NFL’s quarter pole, and here’s what we know: Nothing.

–Ryan Fitzpatrick leads the entire NFL with 12 touchdown passes. He’s also tied for second in the league with seven interceptions.

–The Arizona Cardinals are 4-0, earning 50 percent of last year’s final victory tally in 25 percent of the time.

–For that matter, the Saints, who went 13-3 last year, are on pace to go 0-16 "
