The landscape of the NFL as we head into Week 6 is an interesting one. There are still a handful of win-less teams and just one team in each conference that remains undefeated.
There are a ton of games to choose from for your survivor pools and betting action, so if you decide to wet your feet, be sure to compare your options at this sportsbetting.ag review.
For now, let’s go over the best and the worst so far this season.
After the great start over in New England, we expected Belichick’s boys to be unbeaten. But, we didn’t so much expect this from Kyle Shanahan’s squad. Now, all of John Lynch’s moves a couple of years ago are starting to look pretty darn good.
For the 49ers, it started ugly. They got that win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but it wasn’t pretty. The following week in Cincinnati, they looked good … and have ever since. The Cleveland Browns were lauded as the AFC North’s team to beat and the 49ers just dismantled them 31-3 in Week 5. Jimmy Garoppolo only threw for 181 yards, though he went 20 of 29 and dropped in two touchdowns on no interceptions. The real magic happened on the ground, where the Niners rushed for 275 yards on a solid Browns defense! Meanwhile, Baker Mayfield was held to just 100 yards passing and no touchdowns. His, best catches were balls thrown to George Kittle and Matt Breida. – two interceptions. But the Niners didn’t just shut down the pass. Nick Chubb and OBJ only combined for 102 yards on the ground. 202 yards of total offense won’t cit it if you want to win in this league.
Next up the Niners take on the LA Rams, who are looking to bounce back from back-to-back losses. Can Shanahan keep the panning out little nuggets of gold in Week 6? We’ll see.
The Pats have proven to have an incredible defense. So good, in fact, that they are listed as 17-point favorites over the New York Giants for their TNF game at Gillette Stadium. When you have the No. 1 defense and the No. 5 offense, you are going to be pretty hard to beat. The Pats are putting up a little over 30 points per game and allowing just 6.75. Wow! And it isn’t like they’ve only played a bunch of scrubs to rack up those defensive wins. The Bills were undefeated before they met up with Terrible Tom and his defensive fortifications. And after their loss, they went right back to winning. The only thing that makes me think the Pats might lose a game or two this season is the fact that they just lost Stephen Gostkowski; a guy who has a boatload of postseason field goal experience.
Oh, Cincinnati … I am truly sorry. You guys are awful. Local media and beat writers just couldn’t understand why the national media and pretty much everyone outside of south Ohio was laughing the town’s high hopes for Zac Taylor. Well, now you know. That said, they were in it up until the end with both the Seachickens and the Cardinals.
But they got absolutely murdered by a struggling Steelers team just two weeks ago, so I don’t see the Bengals misery ending anytime soon.
The AFC East is loaded with dung. Both the Dolphins and the Jets can’t get a win to save their lives … or careers. Now Miami is a dumpster-fire that we all knew was alight before the season started, so it is to be expected. But the Jets just got LeVeon Bell and have a solid roster of talent. But Darnold is out and Luke Falk is just well … craptastic. In his latest outing, he put up a whopping 120 yards – totally, sarcastic– and two interceptions. He didn’t even get a TD. In fact, Falk hasn’t thrown a touchdown yet in his three starts. He has managed to throw three picks in that time frame, though. Good job! Maybe they’ll finally get a win when they play the Dolphins on Nov. 3rd. Then they would be 7-1. But, both teams are playing so poorly that they’ll somehow both manage to lose, so we’ll see a rare division tie game and they’ll both be 0-7-1, and the world will collectively shake its head.
The Redskins are the only winless team in the NFC and boy did they take a whooping by the Pats in their home stadium on Sunday.
Neither Case Keenum or Dwayne Haskins have been able to get it done over on Capitol Hill. The Giants managed to put up 24 points on the Skins while Haskins threw 3 interceptions and no TDs, and Keenum added to that number to make it 4 INTs to 0 TDs. All the New York fans that were screaming about the New York grabbing Daniel Jones instead of Haskins are backpaddling on their words now.
