Tale of the Week – Season 2

Week 6 Blog

ATL (4-1) @ DET (3-2)

TB (2-2) @ CAR (3-2)

After a sensation win last week against the Bears, the Buccs will head to dividional rivals, the Carolina Panthers. Both teams need a win if they want to keep pace with the high flying Falcons. The Buccs defence is currently number 1 in the league in yards allowed to will be looking to stop Cam and his Panthers from getting anything going on offence while the Panthers will be looking to put a stop the Buccs offence who put up 44 points last week on a very good bears team. This one should be close, but home field advantage will just get the panthers over the line and leave the Buccs with a lot of work to do to get close to Atlanta.

TEN (0-5) @ HOU (1-3)

CLE (3-1) @ GB (0-5)

DAL (2-3) @ WAS (0-4)

CIN (1-3) @ BAL (4-0)

JAX (4-1) @ PIT (2-2)

MIA (2-3) @ NYJ (1-3)

Miami head to New York this week to take on the Jets who have struggled so far this season. Miami got a huge win at New England last week with a clutch drive in the final few mins from rookie QB Connor Couch to put the Dolphins up by 4 and just held on despite NE driving right down the field only to run out of time within the 10 yard line. The Jets lost to the Patriots before last week’s bye and will be looking to rookie Evan Potter who has struggled so far this season, to get things together. This should be another close one with neither team lighting things up on offence and both QBs with 19 picks between them. Ultimately it will come down to whichever QB makes the least amount of errors.

PHI (3-1) @ OAK (2-3)

IND (3-2) @ LA (2-3)

SF (4-0) @ ARI (0-5)

KC (1-4) @ SD (4-1)

CHI (4-1) @ MIN (3-2)

This week the number one seed Chicago Bears head to Minnesota to take on the Vikings who sit only a game behind the Bears in an eagerly anticipated NFC north matchup. The Bears will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing loss last week at the hands of Tampa Bay while the Vikings won their last matchup against the struggling Packers. The two teams look very similar with the Bears scoring a total of 92 points this season and the Vikings scoring a total of 90. It’s a similar situation on defence with the Bears shipping a total of 92 and the Vikings 90. This should be a close one on Monday night football with two good teams and turnovers are likely to be key. The bears have struggled to get their run game going so far this season so that could be key if Minnesota can stop the Bears passing game.

DEN (1-3) @ BUF (3-1)

Players of the week

Offence – Huntley

This guy sends shivers down the spines of AFC east coaches. Standing at 6ft6” this guy is a beast, he has all the tools to haunt the division for years and week 6 will be his coming out party. He has averaged 76 yards per game through 4 games but this week he’ll more than double that with 190 yards and two touchdowns.

Defence – Gerald McCoy

In one of the big matchups this week Gerald McCoy is set for a big week. The elite Dt will record 2 Sacks, one TFL, and 6 tackles. Cam will be seeing McCoy in his sleep after he’s battered by the Buccs DT
