There’s four late games on tap for Week 6 in the NFL, which features some pretty good matchups. Here’s a look at what we’re working with:
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-2) at Arizona Cardinals (2-3)
- Los Angeles Rams (3-2) at Jacksonville Jaguars (3-2)
- Pittsburgh Steelers (3-2) at Kansas City Chiefs (5-0)
- Los Angeles Chargers (1-4) at Oakland Raiders (2-3)
Who would have thought the Rams and Jaguars would be an intriguing matchup at this point of the season? Their defense has been incredible, and Leonard Fournette has been a huge threat on offense. In all fairness, the Rams should have won last week against the Seahawks, but Cooper Kupp.
The Buccaneers look to avenge their ‘what should have been a win’ against the Patriots on Thursday Night Football, but will have their hands full with the Cardinals on the road. The Raiders and Chargers game should go on as planned despite wildfires threatening the area, but something worth monitoring.
The afternoon game of the day features a rematch of last year’s divisional playoffs with the Chiefs set to host the Steelers. The Steelers escaped with an 18-16 victory at Arrowhead, but these are two totally different teams. Ben Roethlisberger was atrocious in a 30-9 thrashing last week courtesy of the Jaguars. Mike Tomlin’s team has certainly been suspect, so it’ll be interesting to see how they respond.
