NFL Week 6 Sunday live open thread

So it begins...

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Los Angeles Chargers Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-2) at Atlanta Falcons (1-4)

1:00pm ET, FOX

Points awarded to anyone who had the Bucs with a better record than the team who took the Los Angeles Rams out of the playoffs last year.

(points awarded to nobody)

It’s fair to say this is a must-win for ATL. Drop this to get to 1-5, and it is fair to lock them out of the playoffs. Win this to get to 2-4...and they’re still behind Tampa at 2-3.

Pittsburgh Steelers (2-2) at Cincinnati Bengals (4-1)

1:00pm ET, CBS

AFC North battle in mid-October? Deal me in.

The Bengals currently hold the second-best record in the entire AFC behind the Kansas City Chiefs. And they hold home field today against a Pittsburgh team desperate to stay above .500 for all their off-field drama.

Los Angeles Chargers (3-2) at Cleveland Browns (2-2-1)

1:00pm ET, CBS

What in the hell is this?

An AFC contender in the Chargers who leave an LA that hardly feels like home to head to a Browns team that has much of the NFL world captivated?

A Chargers win, and they head to 4-2 in the thick of the burgeoning AFC playoff race. A Browns win, and...the Browns...the Cleveland Browns...yeah.

The 2018 NFL is a thing.

Seattle Seahawks (2-3) at* Oakland Raiders (1-4)

1:00pm ET, FOX
* - This game will be played at Wembley Stadium in London, England

What is this? Seahawks-Raiders? In the new NFL?!

In what used to be an NFL mainstay, this matchup is now on a quadrennial schedule just like the Rams-Denver Broncos matchup we’re preparing for.

This game is more about perhaps the loser. Yes, the Broncos could match the Seahawks at 2-4 with a win...which is kind of the point.

Chicago Bears (3-1) at Miami Dolphins (3-2)

1:00pm ET, FOX

These are two three-win teams.

Ok. of these teams becomes a four-win team.



Arizona Cardinals (1-4) at Minnesota Vikings (2-2-1)

1:00pm ET, FOX

Now this is a game that makes sense!

The Cardinals are struggling while the Vikings manage their way into the NFC playoff picture as QB Kirk

(Arizona wins)


Indianapolis Colts (1-4) at New York Jets (2-3)

1:00pm ET, CBS

Is it possible for both of these teams to lose?

Carolina Panthers (3-1) at Washington Redskins (2-2)

1:00pm ET, FOX

I have never been angrier/sadder/angrysadder that we have been robbed of RB Derrius Guice than this moment.

Buffalo Bills (2-3) at Houston Texans (2-3)

1:00pm ET, CBS

I am convinced the Bills and the Texans are the same team and nothing you can do or say can convince me otherwise.
