After a 14-hour day of football, courtesy of a 9 a.m. London game, the sixth Sunday of the NFL season is in the books.
Two winless teams picked up victories, two remain winless and two stay undefeated through Week 6. Others, like the Los Angeles Rams and Dallas Cowboys, continue to struggle while teams like the Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans are on the rise.
Here is what you missed in Week 6:
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have shown flashes of being an offensive juggernaut, but then Jameis Winston goes back to doing Jameis Winston things. The Bucs QB threw five interceptions and fumbled twice in Sunday's game in London as the Carolina Panthers cruised to a 37-26 victory.
The Philadelphia Eagles returned to the site of their Super Bowl LII victory, but they were overmatched by the Minnesota Vikings. Kirk Cousins threw for 333 yards and four touchdowns, while the Vikings defense had two sacks and five QB hits to keep Carson Wentz under pressure all day in a 38-20 win.
Battle For Top Pick
The battle between two winless teams went as one would expect. The first six possessions ended in punts, but Redskins QB Case Keenum connected with Terry McLaurin for two touchdowns and Washington decided it would hold on for a 17-16 victory over the Miami Dolphins for their first win of the season.
The Houston Texans did not play their best football against the Kansas City Chiefs, but Deshaun Watson had a chance to win the game in the fourth quarter and delivered on a late game-winning drive as the Texans walked out of Arrowhead Stadium with a victory. Meanwhile, the Chiefs are now losers of two straight with glaring questions about their defense.
Seahawks Are in Sync
The Seattle Seahawks overcame a 20-6 deficit on the road as Russell Wilson tossed two touchdowns and Chris Carson ran for 124 yards and the go-ahead score in a 32-28 victory over the Cleveland Browns that featured some choreographed touchdown celebrations.
Saints Blessed With Win
The New Orleans Saints and Jacksonville Jaguars were engaged in a gritty, low-scoring battle, but the Saints' luck without Drew Brees continued as Teddy Bridgewater found Jared Cook for a TD at the end of the third quarter to break a 6-6 tie and the Saints improved to 5-1 after getting an unintentional blessing from the Pope.
Lamar Lethal With Legs
Lamar Jackson torched the Cincinnati Bengals with his legs, rushing for 152 yards and a touchdown, while also tossing for 236 yards in a 23-17 victory to improve the Baltimore Ravens to 4-2.
Best of the West
The San Francisco 49ers continue to prove they are for real as they held the Los Angeles Rams to a touchdown and just 157 yards of total offense in a 20-7 road win over the defending NFC champions. The Niners now move to 5-0 and remain the only unbeaten team in the NFC.
The woes continued for the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6. Matt Ryan threw for 356 yards and four touchdowns to rally from a 17-point deficit, but kicker Matt Bryant missed an extra point to force overtime and give the Arizona Cardinals a 34-33 victory.
Jets QB Sam Darnold returned to the field for the first time since he was diagnosed with mono after Week 1 and sparked the Jets to their first victory with 338 yards and two touchdowns, and handed the Dallas Cowboys their third straight loss.
Mariota Takes Seat
The Tennessee Titans' offense was nowhere to be found as quarterback Marcus Mariota was benched in favor of Ryan Tannehill after throwing two interceptions. It didn't make much difference as the Titans were shutout by the Denver Broncos in a 16-0 loss.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are down to their third-string quarterback, but the defense came up clutch, picking off Philip Rivers twice and returning a fumble from the Chargers quarterback for a touchdown as they rolled to a 24-17 victory to improve to 2-4 and remain in the hunt in the AFC North.
