NFL Nutshell: Week 6

17 10 2011

 

Dallas 16, New England 20

Finally, the Cowboys played a game in which they were not the primary cause of their loss; however, Tom Brady showed why he is considered one of the greatest quarterbacks, taking his team down the field for the game-winning touchdown. Dez Bryant disappeared again as the game progressed, collecting all of his team-leading 78 receiving yards in the first half.

 

New Orleans 20, Tampa Bay 26

Capitalizing off of Drew Brees’s three interceptions and efficient play from Josh Freeman and Earnest Graham, the young-gun Buccaneers bounced back from their Week 6 implosion and now sit on top of the NFC South.

 

Indianapolis 17, Cincinnati 27

Even though the Bengals have no national superstars or glaring statistics, they are doing the one thing that matters – winning football games, which is something Andy Dalton has a knack for doing. Cincinnati currently sits at 4-2, while the Colts continue to look for some sort of identity.

 

San Francisco 25, Detroit 19

In a battle between two surprisingly successful teams, it couldn’t have been more back and forth (6 lead changes) as the 49ers handed the Lions their first loss and Jim Schwartz’s first mid-life crisis situation. Stafford throwing the ball a staggering 50 times and the running game having only 66 yards is clearly something the Lions need to work on changing.

 

St. Louis 3, Green Bay 24

Both teams extended their current winning and losing streaks as Aaron Rodgers continues to show that his team is not content with a single championship. Even though things have been glum for the Rams so far, Brandon Lloyd might be just enough of a spark to provide them with the willpower to win a game.

 

Buffalo 24, NY Giants 27

The New York Giants took command of the NFC East with this victory over the Bills, who couldn’t overcome Fitzpatrick’s two costly, second-half interceptions. After their bye week and the Dolphins, the Giants have a very difficult schedule ahead of them, having to face the Patriots (5-1), the 49ers (5-1), the Eagles (2-4), the Saints (4-2), and the Packers (6-0).

 

Monday Night Football:

Miami vs. NY Jets – 7:30 p.m. CT

On top of struggling to find any sort of rhythm on the field, the Dolphins now have to deal with another outlandish Brandon Marshall comment. Other than their Week 3 loss to the Cleveland Browns, Miami has lost every one of their games by double-digits and has struggled to even compete in most of them. The Jets are also going through their own tough time, losing three in a row and giving up over 30 points in all of those games. Their running game, averaging more yards than only the Tennessee Titans, has also been absent and created an unbalanced offense for the Jets. However, the magnitude of the Jets’ struggles does not come close to the Dolphins’ problems, which is why I’m confident the Jets will be back at .500 once this game is over. Pick: Jets.

JAY! I would tell you to make the Packers win the Superbowl, but you’re clearly bad luck so I’m not going to. #hating #twatermeanssomethingelse
