I’ve put together a full schedule of the games on tap for Week 6 of the NFL regular season. As they become available, the spreads and totals for all 15 games will be listed.
There’s plenty of things to talk about from Week 5. Most will start with the Patriots 33-13 blowout win over the Browns in Tom Brady’s return. While a good story, I don’t think that result or Brady playing well really surprised a lot of people.
What stood out to me was the Falcons 23-16 win on the road over the previously unbeaten Broncos. There were plenty of people doubting Atlanta’s 3-1 start and for good reason. They started out 5-0 last year and ended up going just 8-8. At 4-1, the Falcons have a big lead in the NFC South. The other three teams are all 1-3 with Carolina and Tampa still to play on Monday Night Football.
With the Broncos loss and the Eagles losing at Detroit, there’s just one undefeated team left. That being the Vikings at 5-0, who crushed the Texas 31-13 at home. There are a number of teams with just one loss. In fact, there’s 9 teams at either 3-1 or 4-1 through 5 weeks of the season.
Outside of Atlanta, the other big surprises are the Raiders and Cowboys. Both of which are 4-1. Oakland won 34-31 over the Chargers, while Dallas dominated the Bengals 28-14.
Plenty of intriguing games are tap this week, but two really stand out to me. It just happen both come in Sunday’s afternoon games. The first being the Falcons at the Seahawks. The other the Cowboys going to Green Bay to face the Packers.
It’s hard to believe, but there’s only two other games with teams playing each other who are .500 or better. Those being the Chiefs at the Raiders and Eagles at Redskins.
Your primetime games this week feature two key division battles. Denver has to go to San Diego on Thursday, while the Texans host the Colts on Sunday Night Football. As for Monday Night Football, the Cardinals host the Jets in a battle of two desperate teams off to slow starts.
Over the course of the next few days, I’ll be previewing a number of the games this week. In these, I’ll give out my early betting lean on either the spread or total. As the previews are published, I’ll include links on this page, so check be frequently.
