NFL Passion Week 6: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Updated on October 15, 2018

After a couple weeks of nothing but thrillers Week 6 in the NFL provided us quite a few one sided affairs. There was still one overtime game and a duel between the Patriots and Chiefs the may have been the best game of the season so far. But no matter how competitive the games were any team who won took a step forward while the losers took a step back, especially with the standings being so crowded this year. Without further adieu here's a recap of Sunday's week 6 action. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly!!!!!!

GAME OF THE DAY

The Patriots picked up the HUGE 43-40 win over the Chiefs. The Chiefs were undefeated heading into Sunday

Chiefs 40 Patriots 43

CHIEFS(5-1): Patrick Mahomes 352yd 4TD 2Int Kareem Hunt 10 car 80yd 5rec 105yd TD Tyreke Hill 7rec 142yd 3TD PATRIOTS(4-2): Tom Brady 340yd TD rsh TD Sony Michel 24car 106yd 2TD

This was no contest the best game of the day and possibly the entire year. In a game where every man on the field wanted it badly the Chiefs threw everything they had at New England on the road, but the veteran Patriots simply refused to turn the keys to the AFC over just yet. Patrick Mahomes threw 4 touchdown passes including a 75 yard pass to Tyreke Hill late to tie the game, but threw two interceptions early in the game.But Mr 200 Tom Brady did his job, driving his team down the field on the final drive setting up a 28 yard chip shot as time expired. Brady is now the first quarterback in NFL history to reach 200 career wins. Quarterbacks under the age of 25 are now 0-24 against the Pats during the Tom Brady era.


Antonio Brown's 31 yard touchdown reception with 10 seconds left lifted the Steelers over the Bengals and into the thick of things in the AFC North

Steelers 28 Bengals 21

STEELERS(3-2-1): Ben Roethlisberger 369yd TD James Conner 19car 111yd 2TD Antonio Brown 5rec 105yd TD BENGALS(4-2): Andy Dalton 229yd 2TD

It was a very good game with control of the AFC North hanging in the balance. Both quarterbacks played well in a very evenly matched affair. The difference being a 31 yard touchdown pass from Big Ben to Antonio Brown with 10 seconds left in the game. With Pittsburgh hitting its stride the AFC North has come back to life and is now a three team rat race once again.

Buccaneers 29 Falcons 34

BUCCANEERS(2-3): Jameis Winston 395yd 4TD 2Int FALCONS(2-4): Matt Ryan 354yd 3TD Julio Jones 10rec 143yd

Two teams desperately needed a win. Atlanta escaped the Georgia dome with that win.The Bucs were competitive but while Jameis Winston threw four touchdown passes he also threw two interceptions. The Falcons offense was a well oiled machine with Matt Ryan throwing three touchdown passes and Julio Jones going for 143 yards receiving.




Jason Sanders hit a 47 yard field goal to give the Dolphins the overtime win over the Bears.

Bears 28 Dolphins 31 OT

Bears(3-3): Mitch Trubisky 316yd 3TD Int Taylor Gabriel 5rec 110yd DOLPHINS(4-2): Brock Osweiler 380yd 3TD 2Int Frank Gore 15car 101yd Alfred Wilson 6rec 155yd 2TD

In another game between two teams who couldn't afford to lose Miami won an overtime dogfight. Both teams played well and Mitch Trubisky continued to impress minus the onbe interception. Brock Osweiler threw for three touchdowns and a career high 380 yards in replacement of the injured Ryan Tannehill, though he threw two picks in the process. Overtime was a bit dicey when following a Kenyon drake fumble near the goal line Chicago failed to capitalize as Cod Parkey missed a 53 yard field goal that would have given the Bears their fourth straight victory. Instead the Dolphins would get it back and Jason Sanders would put a 47 yarder through the uprights giving the Dolphins the nerve wrecking win and handing Chicago the heart breaking loss. Now they are no where near the drivers seat in the NFC North and are once again fighting to even be in the playoff race.

Panthers 17 Redskins 23

PANTHERS(3-2): Cam Newton 275yd 2TD Int REDSKINS(3-2): Alex Smith 163yd 2TD Adrian Peterson 17car 97yd

The old timers continue to be efficient in Washington and Josh Norman of took it to his former team intercepting a pass and forcing a fumble. The Panthers just handed control of the NFC South to the Saints.

Rams 23 Broncos 20

RAMS(6-0): Jared Goff 201yd Int Todd Gurley 28car 208yd 2TD Robert woods 7rec 109yd BRONCOS(2-4): Case Keenum 322yd 2TD Int Emmanuel Sanders 7rec 115yd YD

The Rams continue to prove they are the best team in the NFL right now as the last unbeaten team standing. And once again they took their opponents best shot on the road. While the Broncos played well and completely shut down Jared Goff, Todd Gurley could not be stopped as he found the endzone twice, the fifth time in the past two weeks, as well as went over 200 yards rushing. To Denver's credit they did make a game out of a 20-3 early deficit.






THE BAD

Chargers 38 Browns 14

CHARGERS(4-2): Philip Rivers 207yd 2TD Int Melvin Gordon 18car 132yd 3TD Tyrone Williams 3rec 118yd 2TD BROWNS(2-3-1): Baker Mayfield 238yd TD 2Int

The Browns couple week string of impressive play was haulted and the temperature on Mayfield fever was down. The Chargers continue to impress as two weeks in a row they've put their opponents away early.

Seahawks 27 Raiders 3

SEAHAWKS(3-3): Russell Wilson 222yd 3TD Int RAIDERS(1-5): Derek Carr 142yd

Raider fans should be glad this game was in London and they didn't have to watch it live. Oakland continues their downward spiral and chaotic play.

Cardinals 17 Vikings 27

CARDINALS(1-5) VIKINGS(3-2-1)

The Vikings are a better team than the Cardinals. Vikings win.

Ravens 21 Titans 0

RAVENS(4-2) TITANS(3-3)

In a game I thought would be evenly matched the Titans offense was nowhere to be found. That is beginning to become a problem because though it has a few times already the defense isn't going to be able to save them every week i.e. this game right here.




THE UGLY

Colts 34 Jets 42

COLTS(1-5): Andrew Luck 301yd 4TD 3Int JETS(3-3): Sam Darnold 280yd 2TD Int

Don't ask me what this game was. There were A LOT of both touchdown passes and interceptions being thrown in an arcade or Sunday at the park style football game. But when the smoke cleared it was the Jets who now find themselves at .500 on the year.

Bills 13 Texans 20

BILLS(2-4) TEXANS(3-3)

Boy does that Texans D know how to get the job done! Johnathan Joseph took an interception 28 yards with 1:23 left for the go ahead score that would eventually lead to Houston's third straight win after losing the first three games of the season.

UPSET SPECIAL!!!!

Jaguars 7 Cowboys 40

JAGUARS(3-3): Blake Bortles 149 TD Int COWBOYS(3-3): Dak Prescott 183yd 2TD Ezekiel Elliott 24car 106yd TD Cole Beasley 9rec 101yd 2TD

are the Jags not the team alot of people thought they were or have the Cowboys been underrated? I'm going to go with the former due to how awful Jacksonville has played in recent weeks. After surprising us with a nice season a year ago Blake Bortles is starting to look like the awful why'd you pick that guy quarterback we used to know.

Monday Night Football

San Francisco 49ers(1-4) at Green Bay Packers(2-2-1)

Will Aaron and the Pack get their mojo back? Will C.J. bethard get his first win of the season? Anything can happen on a Monday Night.

That is your Week 6 NFL recap. As the weeks go by the wins become more important. As for this week, we can now put it behind us.

On to Week 7!!!!
