Sports: NFL (Week 6)

This week was a bit strange where there were plenty of upsets to go around so I'll be highlighting teams that may have won this week but probably won't have a strong chance of making it to the playoffs. The season is still pretty young so anything could happen in the next few weeks to change the fate of these teams if they can ride the momentum of their recent win. I'm hoping the same thing is true for my fantasy team as I got my second win in a row and could be back in contention for a playoff spot if I win a few more. This season has proven a bit harder to predict with the final undefeated team falling.

AFC
AFC West
The Chargers have changed cities from San Diego to Los Angeles but that hasn't brought them much success. They did beat their division rival, the Oakland Raiders who aren't very strong either. The Kansas City Chiefs lost their first game to the Steelers while the Denver Broncos gave the Giants their first win.

AFC North
The Pittsburgh Steelers looked to be having a rough season but with a huge upset to the Chiefs, they are back in front of this division. The Bengals had a bye week but could be back in the fight after the Baltimore Ravens loss to the Bears in overtime. The Browns continue their abysmal season with their sixth loss to the Texans.

AFC South
The Tennessee Titans won a big battle on Monday night against their division rival the Indianapolis Colts. The Houston Texans improved their record with an easy victory over the Browns while the Jacksonville Jaguars fell to the Rams. The division now has a three-way tie with three teams with three wins.

AFC East
The Miami Dolphins are trying not to repeat recent seasons with a surprising upset over the Falcons. The New England Patriots avoided defeat against the New York Jets to take the division lead. The Bills had the week off.

NFC
NFC South
The New Orleans Saints were the only team in this division to get a win when they beat the Lions in a high scoring game. The Carolina Panthers lost the Thursday night game to the Eagles while the Atlanta Falcons were upset by the Dolphins. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost to the Cardinals despite a fourth-quarter comeback attempt.

NFC West
The Arizona Cardinals don't look great but they scraped by over the Buccaneers to get to the middle of the division. The Los Angeles Rams moved to the top of the division with a win over the Jaguars and a bye week for Seattle. The San Francisco 49ers have yet to win a game losing to the Redskins.

NFC North
The Minnesota Vikings triumphed in a game that could alter the division as the Green Bay Packers lost their starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The Detroit Lions lost to the Saints while the Chicago Bears beat the Ravens 
NFC East
The New York Giants got their first win of the season as they beat the Broncos. The Philadelphia Eagles are climbing to the top of not just the division but the conference as they won the Thursday night game against the Panthers. The Washington Redskins just barely made it past the weak 49ers. The Cowboys had a bye week.

The game I'm looking forward to the most this next week if not all season is the Super Bowl rematch between the Falcons and the Patriots on Sunday night. I'm also curious about the Redskins and Eagles on Monday night.
