For a week, Aaron Rodgers was guilty of Packer's offensive woes

If the cowboys did not exist, Mike McCarthy's offensive system could be the worst in the league. It's really in the "least creative" discussion. There is a decent chance that he still rings playing from an old playbook he retrieved from Bill Walsh's trash back in the early 1990s. Only he added about 50 pages of different oblique platforms. Here …

Week 6 NFL score predictions – Guide to best games, fantasy outlook, more We're previewing the Week 6 NFL slate with score predictions for each game from our Nation reporters, what to watch for in fantasy, Football Power Index projections from ESPN Stats & Information, and much more. Thursday Night Football result: PHI 34, NYG 13 Teams with byes in Week 6: NO, DET Jump to a matchup: PIT-CIN | ARI-MIN | TB-ATL | CAR-WSH | BUF-HOU LAC-CLE | OAK-SEA | CHI-MIA | IND-NEW | LAR-DEN BAL-TEN | JAX-DAL | KC-NE | SF-GB SUNDAY'S GAMES Point spread: CIN -2.5 | Matchup quality: 68.5 (or 100) Jeremy Fowler's pick: The Steelers found three things in last week's blowout of Atlanta – an improved defense, the Ben Roethlisberger-Antonio Brown connection and their overall edge. Bunch those factors with a five-game winning streak in Paul Brown Stadium, and the Steelers should get their first divisional win. Steelers 27, Bengals 21 Catch up on what's happening heading into Week 6: • Ranking top 25 free agents in 2019 • Power Rankings: Stacking Up Schedules » Predicting NFL's next $ 100 million deals • Inside the NFL's offensive explosion • Ranking NFL's biggest risers, fallers » More NFL coverage» Katherine Terrell's pick: The Bengals have lost the past six meetings to the Steelers, so recent history would say to not pick Cincinnati. Men det meste av teamet fra 2015-playoffspillet som startede, er at losse streaken er gått, og i stedet er et lag som er 30,6 poeng per kamp. Mens de Bengals ikke matcher godt med Steelers forsvarslinje eller løbende James Conner, de har en omsætningsforsvar og en forbrydelse som kan holde pace. Bengals 27, Steelers 24 FPI win projection: CIN, 52.9 percent. This is only the fifth time (playoffs included) since the start of the 2008 season era that the Bengals have been FPI favorites against Pittsburgh. But they are only 1-4 in those games with the lone win coming in 2013. What to watch for in fantasy: The Steelers have a secondary lacking in depth, a weakness that Andy Dalton can exploit – and exploit he will, considering his remarkably good chemistry with final man Tyler Boyd to date. Read more. In case you missed it: Bengals off to hot start, but Steelers game looms big … Roethlisberger: Conner has earned playing time … Watt's 'blackout' sack celebration a sign defense is working Point spread: MIN -10.5 | Matchup quality: 45.4 (or 100) Josh Weinfuss 'pick: The Cardinals' offense is ranked last or second-last in the league in 11 categories. While the Vikings do not have a great defense, it will be enough to slow down rookie Josh Rosen and the Arizona offense. Arizona boasts the 31st-ranked rushing offense while the Vikings have the 31st-ranked rushing defense. The way Kirk Cousins ​​has been playing – fifth in the league in final percentage, second in yards and seventh in touchdowns – the Cardinals might find themselves abandoning the run by the second half. Vikings 31, Cardinals 17 ESPN Chalk has been covered with all your NFL Week 6 betting needs: Week 6 early look Eliminator picks ATS score Courtney Cronin's pick: The explosive numbers Cousins, Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs have put up in the first five weeks show the Vikings can rely on their passing game to carry them where the run game will not. Against the 31st-rushing defense, Minnesota might look too tee up the run if Dalvin Cook is healthy enough to carry the load. Selv om han ikke er, kan Vikings fortsatt stole på deres skærmspil for at generere værfter og flytte offensiv nedkørsel hurtigt mod et forsvar som tillader 391 yards per spil. Vikings 23, Cardinals 18 FPI win projection: MIN, 84.4 percent. The last time the Vikings were an 80-plus percent favorite was when they were upset by the Bills and their rookie QB in Week 3. What to watch for Week 3? Could the Cardinals make it two big upsets? What to watch for in fantasy: The Vikings have had an exceedingly difficult time keeping opposing tight ends in check, and Ricky Seals-Jones has been routinely getting looks on deeper throws. His 10.6-yard average depth of target is fifth-highest among tight ends. Read more. In case you missed it: The philosophical pass-rusher: Weatherly filling void for Vikings … Rosen a favorite among teammates , who says 'he's not weird' play 0:38 Steve Young sees Jameis Winston's return going well after a bye week against a bad Falcons defense in Week 6. ] Point spread: ATL -3.5 | Matchup quality: 45.2 (or 100) Jenna Laine's pick: Through four games, the Bucs have given up 445.8 yards of offense per game, while the Falcons' 55 percent third-down conversion rate is worst in the league. The Bucs are giving up 34.8 points a game, the most in the league, with Falcons right behind them at 32.6. The difference is that in spite of their early hiccups, the Falcons have averaged 30 points a game the past two weeks. That's a big question mark for Tampa Bay with Jameis Winston starting his first game coming off suspension. Falcons 34, Bucs 28 Vaughn McClure's pick: The Falcons are on a three-game losing streak but have won three straight over the Buccaneers, averaging 33.7 points in those wins. At home this season, the Falcons are averaging 34.7 points per game and are 11-of-13 in the red zone. Dus als de deplete verdediging strijdt tegen Winston en de Bucs' explosieve wapens, verwacht Matt Ryan en de overtreding genoeg punten om de skid te breken. Falcons 42, Bucs 28 FPI win projection: ATL, 65.1 percent. Expect both QBs to light it up on Sunday. The Buccaneers have allowed the highest opposing Total QBR of any team this year with an 83.3, and Atlanta has allowed the third worst at 64.6. What to watch for in fantasy: In Keanu Neal's first two seasons, the Falcons 'Defense allowed a completion rate of 64.9 percent. Without Neal this season, that number is up to 69.8 percent. Do not be surprised to see Jameis Winston to post more than 300 yards and multiple scores. Read more. In case you missed it: Trufant knows he can not 'half-step' in battle with Evans … Falcons' new priority: Keep Ryan upright … Buccaneers put solo spotlight on Winston in promotional video Point spread: WSH -1 | Matchup quality: 43.4 (or 100) Who wins Steelers Bengals, Chargers-Browns, Bears-Dolphins, Panthers-Redskins and Chiefs-Patriots? "I selfishly hoped for him that he would go to the Chiefs, "Patrick Mahomes' college coach says. So did Andy Reid. Here's how the perfect duo came to be. Which teams have had the biggest bump from 2017 to 2018? Football Outsiders dives into the data to present the top six. 2 Related David Newton's Pick: The Panthers are getting back their defensive leader (Thomas Davis) and offensive leader (Greg Olsen). As quarterback Cam Newton said, "The band is back together." The emotional boost from that and Washington coming off a Monday night loss should give Carolina an edge, even on the road. That Newton has a career record of 4-0 with a fitting rating of 115.4 against Washington also bodes well for Carolina. Panthers 31, Redskins 21 John Keim's pick: There's no reason after Monday night to expect Washington to win at home vs. a good team. Washington struggles after a win under coach Jay Gruden, so the loss to New Orleans was predictable. But they're 14-6-1 under him after a loss in the past three years. And quarterback Alex Smith is 9-4 after a loss since 2011, when he's coming off a game where his fitting rating is 69 or below – as it was Monday. This is a defining game for Washington. Redskins 24, Panthers 23 FPI win projection: WSH, 55.0 percent. If the Redskins want any chance to make the playoffs in a wide-open NFC East, a win over Carolina would go a long way. The Redskins are slight favorites with FPI over the next two weeks, but after that, they are just favored to win two of their final 10 games. What to watch for in fantasy: Should you bench Jordan Reed following his one-catching effort on Monday Night Football? No. Read more. In case you missed it: Bradberry, instead of Norman, quietly makes Panthers better … Davis: Return to Panthers helps cope with family tragedy

Point spread: HOU -8.5 | Matchup quality: 41.3 (or 100) Mike Rodak's pick: The Texans have blitzed opposing quarterbacks the eighth-most this season, which spells trouble for rookie Josh Allen, who has an NFL- sausage 1.6 passes rating and 21.9 completion rate when facing pressure. The Bills tried to mask that weakness in a win last Sunday over Tennessee by …
