Week 6 Recap:

Oh boy. What a week. It started off with Ezekiell Elliott’s suspension possibly being reinstated. The Dallas Cowboys are in a whole lot of trouble if Zeke is in fact suspended those 6 games. They would have to turn to Alfred Morris and/or Darren McFadden to fill his shoes and I do not see that happening. On Thursday night, Carson Wentz and the Eagles displayed their dominance as they beat Cam Newton and the Panthers on the road.

The Falcons seem to be in trouble as they blew a lead to the Miami Dolphins in the second half. Sound kind of familiar? Deshaun Watson continues to shine. He broke a rookie record for most touchdown passes through a player’s first 6 career games and the Texans trounced the Browns.

Mitch Trubisky notched his first win as he led his Bears to victory in OT over the Ravens in Baltimore. Bad, bad news in the GB/MIN game. Aaron Rodgers left the game after being hit “late” according to some. He is most likely out for the year after breaking his collarbone, which requires surgery. Brett Hundley will take his place next week and it is highly unlikely that he will produce anywhere close to what Rodgers would produce. The Lions are looking less and less dominant each week. Matthew Stafford had 312 passing yards and 3 TDs, but turned the ball over FIVE times. They let Mark Ingram tear them apart on the ground. He rushed for 114 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Saints are on the rise, while the Lions are falling. The NFC North is wide open right now with Rodgers out and even the Bears have a chance after their win this week.

New England “beat” the Jets this week after a questionable call on an Austin Seferian-Jenkins “fumble” that should have been a touchdown. Washington almost blew it against San Francisco as they squeaked out a 2 point win. C.J. Beathard took over for Brian Hoyer and played pretty decent. He had 245 yards and a touchdown, but threw an interception and his completion percentage was not too high. He has some things to work on, but he showed some potential as well.

More injury news as Jameis Winston went down for the Bucs. He had an MRI and said he should be fine. He is questionable to play this week, but Ryan Fitzpatrick took over and had a GAME. He passed for 290 yards and 3 touchdowns, but threw 2 interceptions. On the other end of that game, Adrian Peterson seemed to come to life. He had 134 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns on 26 attempts. Larry Fitzgerald had a great game as well as he hauled in 10 passes for 138 yards and a touchdown. The old men got the win for the Cards.

The Rams beat the Jags in Jacksonville thanks to their special teams. Pharoh Cooper returned a kick off 103 yards for a TD, while Malcolm Brown took back a blocked punt for a TD. The Steelers finally looked like the Steelers. They held Alex Smith, Kareem Hunt and the dynamic Chiefs’ offense to 13 points. On the offensive side, Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell carried the load. They combined for 346 yards and two touchdowns.

The Raiders got Derek Carr back, but they dropped one to the Chargers in Oakland. Their playoff hopes are going down the drain fast and they face KC this week. The Giants got a win! They beat the Broncos in Denver and ran the ball down the throat of the number one rushing defense in the league. Makes sense .. Marcus Mariota returned and got a much needed win for the Titans in Indy.
