Week 6 in the NFL has some promising action for the fans. Five games stand out with none of the following having heavy favorite teams. These are the predictions for Week 6:
1. (TNF) Eagles @ Panthers
- This Thursday we have a great matchup in front of us as the Eagles go on the road to face the Panthers. Both teams fall under the same boat in regards to schedule wise. Both teams have not had a real test to their abilities, however both offenses look like they can get the job done. With Cam Newton on fire the past couple of weeks, the Panthers should be able to get the job done at home on Thursday Night.
- Steelers @ Chiefs
- The undefeated Chiefs square off against the rattled Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers are coming off a week where they lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars at home with Ben Roethlisberger throwing five interceptions. Big Ben questioned himself in a post-game interview on whether he still has “it” or not. With the Steelers unsure about how their QB will perform, the heavily powered Chiefs will take home the W this week.
- Rams @ Jaguars
- The Rams go into Jacksonville this Sunday to face the Jaguars. The Jags are coming off a big week taking down the Steelers at Heinz Field. Leonard Fournette has established himself as a top RB in the league and all the Jags need is a steady QB which they have in Blake Bortles. The Rams did however have an off week last week with their bell cow Todd Gurley only held to under 45 rush yards. The Rams will not bounce back this week as the Jags will hold them off at home.
- Buccaneers @ Cardinals
- Tampa Bay is coming off a long week where they played last Thursday night falling to the Patriots. The Bucs more than likely should have left that game with a W if it was not for a poor kicking performance from Nick Folk. Doug Martin returned to action last Thursday and made an impact with over 70 yards rushing and a rushing TD. The Cardinals fell to the Eagles on the road last week and added Adrian Peterson to try to fix the awful run game. Peterson will not have an immediate impact and the run game will still be a mess putting too much pressure on Carson Palmer.
- Packers @ Vikings
- The Packers are rolling into Week 6 coming off a big win in Dallas with a 4th quarter drive to beat the Cowboys. While on the other side the Vikings are coming off a win but barely beating the Bears with a poor QB performance and the early exit of top receiver Stefon Diggs. The Packers have been missing their top RB Ty Montgomery due to a rib injury. With Montgomery out, the Packers seem to have found their new RB in Aaron Jones coming off a great week on the ground. With the Vikings looking to bounce back this week at home, the Packers will march into Minneapolis and come out with a W.
