Football News

Week Six started to provide a little more clarity on who the contenders and pretenders are. Some very impressive wins by Dallas, Philadelphia, Cleveland and New England.

Here's a brief rundown of your team as we are now a little more than a third of the way through the season:

Arizona Cardinals - With Seattle's slip up, the Cardinals are now in first in the NFC West. Here's why they may stay.

Atlanta Falcons - At 2-4 and a 3-game losing streak, you have to wonder if Mike Smith's days are starting to become numbered. Awful showing by the home crowd, as it sounded like a home game for the Bears.

Baltimore Ravens - The 28 points scored in the first quarter by the Ravens was a franchise record.

Buffalo Bills - What is up with CJ Spiller? His 3.4 YPC average is the lowest of his five year career and has yet to run one in the end zone. 

Carolina Panthers - Panthers rookie Kelvin Benjamin had no idea you could tie in the NFL.

Chicago Bears - In three wins, Jay Cutler has one turnover. In three losses, Jay Cutler has seven turnovers.

Cincinnati Bengals - Mike Nugent had never missed more than five field goals in a season for the Bengals, he's already missed six this year.

Cleveland Browns - Isaiah Crowell, undrafted after trouble in college, appears to be a steal, he's second in the NFL among qualified rushers with 5.4 YPC.

Dallas Cowboys - The score didn't do justice how much the Cowboys dominated Seattle on Sunday. They outgained them 401-206 in the game and won the time of possession battle by more than 15 minutes.

Denver Broncos - Ronnie Hillman is only the second running back in the last 19 games to get 100 yards against the Jets stingy rush defense.

Detroit Lions - The Lions defense has been flat out dominant. They lead the league, allowing just 270 yards per game. 

Green Bay Packers - The go ahead TD pass by Aaron Rodgers in the final minute was just the second of his career in the final minute.

Houston Texans - After not allowing a point in the first quarter all year, The Texans gave up 24 Thursday night.

Indianapolis Colts - Andrew Luck has two more 300-yard passing games already than he did last year.

Jacksonville Jaguars - The Jaguars running game is so bad, Blake Bortles is the second leading rusher on the team.

Kansas City Chiefs - Kansas City is a team you don't want to face with Andy Reid at the helm after a bye week. He's 13-2 as a head coach after a bye.

Miami Dolphins - Some questionable timeouts by the Dolphins coaching staff on the Packers game-winning drive. There's talk the players are losing faith in Philbin, and rightfully so.

Minnesota Vikings - Teddy Bridgewater's QBR of 2.9 was the lowest in a game in the NFL this year.

New England Patriots-  The Patriots are tied with the Packers in the Takeaway/Giveaway ratio with a plus-9.

New Orleans Saints - The Saints come off the bye week with a brutal schedule to close the season. 10 of 11 teams they face are currently .500 or better.

New York Giants - With Victor Cruz lost for the season and Hakeem Nicks gone, its time for first round draft pick Odell Beckham Jr. to step up.

New York Jets - Geno Smith had a 4.4 yards per attempt average on Sunday. Factoring in he went 23-of-43 on those passes, that's pathetic.

Oakland Raiders - Derek Carr has been sacked a league low three times this year.

Philadelphia Eagles-  The Eagles defense produced its first shutout in 18 years. 

Pittsburgh Steelers - Ben Roethlisberger continues to take a lot of hits. He's been sacked the second most times in the NFL this year (17).

Saint Louis Rams - Rookie Tre Mason looked good in his first touches with the Rams Monday night, getting the ball six times for 52 yards.

San Diego Chargers - Phillip Rivers is completing a league high 69.8 percent of his passes this year.

San Francisco 49ers - Colin Kaepernick's numbers are eerily similar to Steve Young's first 29 starts.

Seattle Seahawks - The Legion of Boom has struggled to force turnovers with just five so far this season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers - The Bucs are the most Jekyll & Hyde team in the NFL. They'll either lose by 30 plus, or have a nail biter in the final minute.

Tennessee Titans - The Titans offense needs Jake Locker back in a bad way. They were only able to muster up 14 first-downs against a porous Jaguars defense.

Washington Redskins - The Redskins offense is still getting theirs, gaining 296.5 yards per game, good for fifth best in the NFL. Kirk Cousins eight interceptions aren't helping though.
