NFL Passion Week 6: Immanuels Prophecy
Week 6 is gunna be huge for many in the NFL. The Chiefs have the opportunity to prove they are the AFC's best when they square off with the Patriots. Pittsburgh trying to salvage tgeir early woes against a seemingly red hot Bengals squad. The Falcons and Bucs fight not to be left behind in the dogfight we call the NFC South, and Marshawn goes up against the Seahawks for the first and probably only time in his career. Here's a preview of all the Week 6 action. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly!!!
THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL
Philadelphia Eagles(2-3) at New York Giants(1-4) 8:20ET 5:20PT Fox NFL
Both teams have underachieved out of the gate, but not only has Philadelphia played better, the quality of their opponents have been better thus far as well. And when two teams are struggling, you gotta go with the one that one the Superbowl last season.
Eagles 24 Giants 17
GAME OF THE WEEK
(5-0)Kansas City Chiefs at (3-2)New England Patriots 8:20ET 5:20PT Sunday
The Chiefs have passed every test so far but this is the ultimate one. They get a Patriots team just catching their stride and not ready to give up their AFC crown this year. With a couple teams breathing down their neck how much longer can New England dominate the conference. And is Pat Mahomes really ready step to Mr. Brady the GOAT?
Chiefs 24 Patriots 27
GAME OF THE WEEK
What is your Game of the Week for Week 6 in the NFL?
(2-2-1)Pittsburgh Steelers at (4-1)Cincinnati Bengals 1ET 10PT CBS
The Steelers limped out of the gate and the Bengals have been golden. But haven't we been here before? Now that Pittsburgh is back at .500 it seems like just the right time for Big Ben to catch fire and Andy Dalton to begin the choke process.
Steelers 28 Bengals 24
Which quarterback is more likely to choke on Sunday?
(2-2)Tampa Bay Buccaneers at (1-4)Atlanta Falcons 1ET 10PT Fox
I know the Falcons are struggling tough, but with Fitzmagic dead and trouble in paradise with Jameis Winston this is the perfect opening for Atlanta to salvage what's left on a season that is very close to being on life support
Buccaneers 20 Falcons 27
(3-1)Chicago Bears at (3-2)Miami Dolphins 1ET 10PT Fox
Chicago is about a win or two away from convincing people that they are the real deal.Miami is about a loss or two away from falling off completely. These two teams should matchup EXTREMELY well and this could be a game of the week sleeper. The only reason I'm picking this game is because I have to because I honestly don't know. Tie goes to the home team.
Bears 20 Dolphins 21
(3-1)Carolina Panthers at (2-2)Washington Redskins 1ET 10PT Fox
The Redskins have overachieved despite their loss last week to the Saints. those NFC South teams are tough. Unfortunately they have another just as tough if not tougher NFC South team up next.
Panthers 24 Redskins 13
(5-0)Los Angeles Rams at (2-3)Denver Broncos 4:05ET 1:05PT Fox
The Rams are undefeated, but they've also had a knack for bringing out the best in their opponents. They're just so good they've been able to stave off everybody's best shot. While Denver has been inconsistent this year we do know that their best shot ain't half bad. Plus this contest is at Mile High, so this is no gimmie for LA.
Rams 20 Broncos 17
(3-2)Baltimore Ravens at (3-2)Tennessee Titans 4:25ET 1:25PT CBS
This is about as good of a matchup as you will find this week. Two top ranked defenses. Two inconsistent but capable quarterbacks. Both fighting for positioning in the AFC sprint out the gate. This game could come down to one or two plays.
Ravens 10 Titans 13
(1-4)Arizona Cardinals at (2-2-1)Minnesota Vikings 1ET 10PT Fox
The Vikings are way better than the Cardinals.
Cardinals 10 Vikings 28
(1-4)Indianapolis Colts at (2-3)New York Jets 1ET 10PT CBS
Colts suck. Jets suck a little less.
Colts 10 Jets 7
(2-3)Buffalo Bills at (2-3)Houston Texans 1ET 10PT CBS
The Bills only show up every other week, and that was last week. The Texans will win handily and move within a dart throw of the playoff race.
Bills 20 Texans 38
(3-2)Los Angeles Chargers at (2-2-1)Cleveland Browns 1ET 10PT CBS
This game is bound to get ugly as two non factors trying to become factors square off. Mayfield fever still runs while in Cleveland, giving Browns tons of momentum. But the Chargers just made easy work of a Raiders team that downed the Browns in overtime just two weeks ago. With Lebron now ironically departed to Los Angeles I think the Browns are ready to fight the Indians to be the new heroes of Cleveland. That last sentence sounded terrible.
Chargers 14 Browns 24
(3-2)Jacksonville Jaguars at (2-3)Dallas Cowboys 4:25 ET 1:25PT CBS
When the Jaguars lost to the Titans the Jets paid for it. Jacksonville was completely embarrassed by the Chiefs last week, and the Cowboys are most certainly gunna pay for it.
Jaguars 31 Cowboys 10
(2-3)Seattle Seahawks at (1-4)Oakland Raiders 4:25ET 1:25PT Fox
This will be Marshawn Lynch's only game against the Seahawks, and rumor has it it wasn't a clean break up when he retired before coming back to play for the Raiders. Nobody in the league wears their heart on their sleeve like Marshawn Lynch so you can expect a big game from him. Only fault for Oakland is that they have to play a home game in London.
Seahawks 21 Raiders 24
Monday Night Football
(1-4)San Francisco 49ers at (2-2-1) Green Bay Packers 8:30ET 5:30PT ESPN
The Packers haven't had the smoothest start to the year, but a loss to the Niners would be concerning. I do expect a competitive game from San Francisco though.
49ers 35 Packers 38
Who will steal the show this week? Who will pry the AFC away from the Pats? Week 6 will get us one step closer to answers to all the questions we so desperately need as starving, know it all sports fans.
Wouldn't have it any other way.
Week 6....... RUN IT!!!!!
