Eagles Host The Giants In The Big Week 6 Clash In The NFL

View image | gettyimages.com

Going into Week 6, there are six teams that still have a perfect record. Four teams are 5-0 (Denver Broncos, Cincinnati Bengals, Green Bay Packers, Atlanta Falcons) and two teams are 4-0, with both New England and Carolina having gone through their bye weeks already.

The Detroit Lions are the only team through the first five weeks not to have won a game. Could they go on to another winless season, like 2008?

Thursday Night Football

Atlanta Falcons @ New Orleans Saints

The first game of Week 6 is an NFC South encounter. It is the Falcons first divisional game of the year, and they come into the game unbeaten, having won all five games so far. The Saints come into this game at the bottom of the division, ranked 32nd in the league for defence. Drew Brees has reached 400 TDs, but the Saints have lost their last two encounters against the Falcons.

Sunday Evening Games

Washington Redskins @ New York Jets

These two sides last faced off in December 2011, where the Jets took victory. Since then, neither side has had a proper playoff run. The Redskins made the playoffs in 2012, but failed to take victory on Wild Card Weekend. Both sides are in the top 6 for defence, meaning this could be a low scoring game.

Arizona Cardinals @ Pittsburgh Steelers

Both these teams come into Week 6 with a winning record (4-1, 3-2 respectively). The Cardinals currently top the NFC West, while Pittsburgh sit behind the perfect Bengals in the AFC North. The steels have won the last three meetings between the pair, and will look to do so again to apply pressure on Cincinnati. The Cardinals rank 3rd in the rush game and will look to exploit that this week against an average Steelers D.

Kansas City Chiefs @ Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings rank last in passing, and second last in total offence, but still have a 2-2 record after their bye last week. They host the Chiefs, who has struggled to a 1-4 record this season. They are average across the board, and with Jamaal Charles out the season after tearing a cruciate ligament, the Chiefs may struggle in Minnesota this week.

Cincinnati Bengals @ Buffalo Bills

The perfect Bengals make the trip east to Buffalo to face the Bills, who themselves are performing well, at 3-2. The Bills travel to London next week, and will look for a springboard to victory with a win here. They have lost the last two, and with Cincinnati having the second ranked offence in the league, it could be a third straight defeat against them for Buffalo.

Chicago Bears @ Detroit Lions

This NFC North clash may not be a high-quality affair. Just two wins from ten combined games, with the Lions yet to secure victory in 2015. They have won their last three meetings against the Bears, however, and that could be motivation for them at Ford Field this weekend. Ranked 26th on offence and 22nd on defence, that will need to change for Detroit to chalk up that elusive first win.

Denver Broncos @ Cleveland Browns

The Broncos have the best ranked defence in the league, and it has helped them to five wins out of five. However, Peyton Manning is not on top form, and with Cleveland having the eighth ranked offence on the other side of the ball, this could be a close match up. The Broncos won the last match-up between the two comfortably, and will be looking to go 6-0 on Sunday.
