Denver (2-4) at Arizona (1-5), 8:20 p.m. on FOX, NFL Network and Amazon. Week 7 kicks off on Thursday as Denver pays a visit to the Arizona Cardinals at State Farm Stadium as both teams look to rebound from Week 6 losses.

The Broncos fell to the unbeaten Los Angeles Rams 23-20 last Sunday at chilly Broncos Stadium at Mile High last Sunday. Denver trailed 13-3 at the half, then pulled themselves to within 7 with 8:54 left in the third when K Brian McManus connected on a 24yard field goal. Los Angeles would then respond with a 21-yard field goal from Chris Santos to pull themselve back to a 10-point cushion. Denver would make it a 3-point contest with 82 seconds left when WR Demaryius Thomas and QB Case Keenum connected on a 1-yard TD toss. The Rams burned Denver for 270 yards on the ground with Los Angeles RB Todd Gurley running for 208 yards and a pair of TDs (Denver rushed for 60 yards, with Keenum throwing for 322 yards and a pair of TDs, connecting with WR Emmanuel Sanders on the other toss), while Jarred Goff threw for 201 yards with five sacks and an interception (Keenum was sacked twice and threw an interception).

Denver on third down tries in the home loss went 3 of 10 (the Broncos were 0 of 1 on fourth down conversions and held the ball for 24:50, while the Rams ruled the clock and held the pigskin for 35:10, going 8 of 17 on third down, 1 of 1 on fourth down.

Arizona was taken to the woodshed by Minnesota 27-17 at US Bank Stadium last Sunday in the Twin Cities. The Desert Angry Birds trailed 13-10 at the half, then watched the Vikings pull away in the second half, outscoring Arizona 14-7 in the final 30 minutes. Minnesota outrushed Arizona 195-61, with Vikings RB Latavius runnig for 155 yards and a TD, while Kirk Cousins threw for 233 yards and a TD to wR Adam Thielen. Arizona’s Josh Rosen threw for 240 and four sacks in the loss (both Rosen and Cousins threw an interception in the contest). Arizona, who turned the ball over twice and got a fumble recovery by S Budda Baker, went 0 of 10 and 0 of 2 on third and fourth downs, keeping the ball for 25:45, while the Vikings held the ball for 34:15, gonig 5 of 14 on third down, 0 of 1 on fourth down.

Denver leads the series 8-1-1, which includes games that were played in St. Louis and at old Mile High Stadium and they have outscored the Desert Angry Birds 289-149. They last met in the Mile High City in 2014 and the Broncos were 41-20 winners, while Arizona’s last win in the series came in 2010 in Glendale by a final of 43-13. Denver’s favored by 2 1/2 on the road and the over/under’s 40 1/2. We wouldn’t blame you if you decide to watch “Big Bang Theory” or “Young Sheldon” this week. Both teams are struggling in their respective divisons and would love nothing more than to right their respective ships. Denver covers the 2 1/2 and wins in the desert.

And then there were two.

Two undefeated teams remain – Kansas City (5-0) and the Los Angeles Rams (5-0) – as the NFL enters Week 6. Since 1990, when the current 12-team playoff format was adopted, 45 of the previous 51 teams (88.2 percent) to start a season 5-0 advanced to the postseason. The Chiefs began the 2017 with a 5-0 record and won the AFC West.

Hope still remains for teams across the league. For the first time since 1990, every team in the NFL has won at least one game through Week 5 and 19 teams are currently in or within one game of first place in their respective divisions.

Week 5 featured close contests across the board, as seven games were decided by eight points or fewer, including four decided by game-winning field goals in the final five seconds of the fourth quarter or overtime. At least one game has gone to overtime in each of the first five weeks of the 2018 season, marking the first time that a season has featured at least one overtime game in each of its first five weeks. Cleveland has played in overtime three times this season, tied with the 2002 Buffalo Bills, 1995 Indianapolis Colts and 1987 Green Bay Packers for the most such games in a team’s first five games of a season since the regular-season overtime rule was instituted in 1974.

Scoring continues to trend at a record pace at the onset of the 2018 season. Through Week 5, there have been 424 total touchdowns and 3,739 total points scored, both the most in NFL history through the first five weeks of a season. Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley leads the league with nine touchdowns (seven rushing, two receiving), while Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes paces the NFL with 14 touchdown passes.

Veterans and rookies combined to make Week 5 one for the record books. Last week, New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees, who has 72,103 career passing yards, became the NFL’s all-time leading passer and New England quarterback Tom Brady, who threw his 500th career touchdown pass on Thursday, became the third quarterback in NFL history to reach 500 career touchdown passes. Four rookie quarterbacks – Arizona’s Josh Rosen, Buffalo’s Josh Allen, Cleveland’s Baker Mayfield and the New York Jets’ Sam Darnold – were victorious in Week 5, marking the first time in the Super Bowl era that rookie quarterbacks went 4-0 or better in a single week.

Quarterbacks combined for 8,126 net passing yards last week, marking the third time the league has eclipsed 8,000 net passing yards in a single week this season. In NFL history, only eight weeks have featured at least 8,000 net passing yards and no other season in league annals has had more than two such weeks.

As the schedule turns to Week 6, the NFL returns to London for the 12th consecutive season as Seattle and Oakland met at Wembley Stadium on Sunday at 1 p.m. Eastern (5 p.m. London time). The Raiders, the home team in London for a second time, welcome the Seahawks to Wembley for their first game in London.

The following two weeks, October 21 and 28, two additional teams – Tennessee and Philadelphia –  will make their London debuts as visiting teams. In Week 7, the Titans will face the Los Angeles Chargers and in Week 8, the Eagles will face Jacksonville  in a matchup of 2017 playoff teams.

The NFL kicked off its series of regular-season games in London in 2007, when the New York Giants beat the Miami Dolphins at Wembley Stadium on their way to winning Super Bowl XLII. By the end of the 2018 season, the NFL will have played 24 regular-season games in London, with 29 of 32 teams having participated.

SEVEN FROM SUNDAY: Cleveland defeated Baltimore, 12-9, in overtime this week. The Browns have played in overtime three times this season, tied with the 2002 Buffalo Bills, 1995 Indianapolis Colts and 1987 Green Bay Packers for the most such games in a team’s first five games of a season since the regular-season overtime rule was instituted in 1974.

At least one game has gone to overtime in each of the first five weeks of the 2018 season, marking the first time that a season has featured at least one overtime game in each of its first five weeks.

Browns rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield passed for 342 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the win. Mayfield, who was selected with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, became the sixth quarterback selected with the first overall pick to win his first-career home start in the common draft era. The other five to accomplish the feat are New England’s Jim Plunkett (September 19, 1971), Atlanta’s Michael Vick (November 11, 2001), Houston’s David Carr (September 8, 2002), Cincinnati’s Carson Palmer (September 19, 2004) and Indianapolis’ Andrew Luck (September 16, 2002).

Cleveland wide receiver Jarvis Landry had five catches for 69 yards in the victory. Landry has 429 career receptions in five seasons and surpassed Larry Fitzgerald (426 from 2004-08) for the most receptions by a player in his first five seasons in NFL history.

•The Los Angeles Rams defeated Seattle Seahawks 33-31 at Century Link Field, to improve to 5-0 this season. The Rams are the fifth team to score at least 30 points in each of their first five games to start a season in NFL history, joining the 2013 Denver Broncos (eight consecutive games), 2011 New England Patriots (five), 2007 Patriots (eight) and 2000 St. Louis Rams (eight). The 2013 Broncos, 2011 Patriots and 2007 Patriots all advanced to the Super Bowl.

•Minnesota quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 30 of 37 passes (81.1 percent) for 301 yards with one touchdown for a 109.6 passer rating and wide receiver Adam Thielen had 116 receiving yards and one touchdown in the Vikings’ 23-21 win at Philadelphia.

Cousins, who completed 35 passes in Week 2, 40 passes in Week 3 and 36 passes in Week 4, is the first player in NFL history to complete at least 30 passes in four consecutive games.

Thielen is the third player in NFL history with at least 100 receiving yards in each of his team’s first five games to start a season, joining Charkey Hennigan of the Houston Oilers (seven games in 1961) and BOB BOYD of the Los Angeles Rams (five in 1954).

•Pittsburgh running back James Conner rushed for 110 yards and two touchdowns and had four catches for 75 yards in the Steelers’ 41-17 victory over Atlanta.

Conner, who had 135 rushing yards, 60 receiving yards and two rushing touchdowns against Cleveland in Week 1, joined Pro Football Hall of Famer Jim Brown (1963) as the only players with multiple games with at least 100 rushing yards, 50 receiving yards and two rushing touchdowns in their team’s first five games of a season.

Conner, who is in his second professional season, joined Chris Johnson (2009) as the only first or second-year players in NFL history with multiple games of 100+ rushing yards, 50+ receiving yards and two or more rushing touchdowns in a single season.

•Carolina kicker Graham Gano converted the game-winning 63-yard field goal with one second remaining in the fourth quarter in the Panthers’ 33-31 victory over the New York Giants.

Gano’s 63-yarder is tied for the longest game-winning field goal in the fourth quarter or overtime in NFL history. New Orleans kicker TOM DEMPSEY converted a 63-yard field goal in the fourth quarter of the Saints’ 19-17 victory over Detroit on November 8, 1970. Gano’s 63-yard field goal is tied for the second-longest in NFL history, trailing only Denver’s Matt Prater, who converted a 64-yarder vs. Tennessee on December 8, 2013.

•New York Jets running back Isaiah Crowell had 15 carries for a franchise-record 219 rushing yards, including a 77-yard touchdown run, in the Jets’ 34-16 win over Denver.

Crowell, who averaged 14.6 yards per carry on Sunday, became the fourth player in NFL history with at least 200 rushing yards on 15 or fewer carries, joining the New York Giants’ DERRICK WARD (December 21, 2008 vs. Carolina), Pro Football Hall of Famer Bobby Mitchell (November 15, 1959 at Washington) of the Cleveland Browns and the Los Angeles Rams’ Dan Towler (November 22, 1953 at the Baltimore Colts).

Jets rookie quarterback Samn Darnold threw three touchdown passes, including a 76-yarder to wide receiver Robby Anderson, in the victory. The Jets became the sixth team since the 1970 merger to score on both a 75+ yard touchdown pass and a 75+ yard touchdown run in the same contest, and the first since Seattle did it on December 21, 2014.

•New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had eight catches for 131 yards with a touchdown and threw a 57-yard touchdown pass to rookie running back Saquan Barkley in the Giants’ Week 5 loss to Carolina.

Beckham became the fourth player in NFL history with at least 100 receiving yards and a 50+ yard touchdown pass in the same game, joining New England’s David Patten (October 21, 2001 at Indianapolis), Pittsburgh’s Tom Tracy (December 13, 1958 vs. the Chicago Cardinals) and Philadelphia’s Bill Ray Barnes (November 16, 1958 vs. the Chicago Cardinals). Beckham and Patten are the only two players in league history to accomplish the feat with a touchdown catch.

Barkley had 129 scrimmage yards (81 receiving, 48 rushing) and two touchdown catches on Sunday. Barkley is the third player in NFL history to record at least 100 scrimmage yards in each of his first five games to begin a career. Kansas City’s Kareem Hunt (seven games in 2017) and Minnesota’s Adrian Peterson (five in 2007) are the only other players to accomplish the feat.

Week 6 kicked off with the 171st meeting (including the postseason) as the defending Super Bowl champs held the New York Giants in check in the Meadowlands Thursday night. Other key games this week features an AFC North showdown between Pittsburgh and Cincinnati at Paul Brown Stadium that highlights Sunday’s early slate of games and Sunday’s schedule concludes with undefeated Kansas City traveling to Foxboro and Gillette Stadium to face the New England at 8:20 p.m. on NBC and week six ends in Green Bay as the Packers host San Francisco on Monday night at 8:15 p.m. on ESPN.

Detroit and New Orleans have byes this week, while Chicago and Tampa Bay return from their week-long vacations. As for last week, While 8-7 wasn’t great, it kept us above .500 for another week, which makes us 42-31 for the season. There’s still a lot of football left and anything can happen… and we mean ANYTHING. Here are Sunday and Monday’s picks for Week 6.

Tampa Bay (2-2) at ATLANTA (1-4), 1 p.m. on FOX and DirecTV 709. A pair of NFC South rivals fighting to stay out of the cellar in that division meet in the Big Peach as Tampa Bay and Atlanta square off. Both teams took losses in their last meeting.

Tampa Bay, who will have Jameis Winston under center Sunday, returns from their bye after their 48-10 loss at Chicago two weeks ago in the Windy City. The Bucs trailed 38-3 at the intermission at Soldier Field and could never really get on track after that. Da Bears held Tampa Bay to 60 yards rushing, while tallying 139 yards of their own and made life miserable for QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick (126 yards, two sacks, interception) and Winston (145 yards, TD, two sacks, two interceptions) in the lopside win, while Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky threw for 354 yards with six TDs and no interceptions. Chicago went 4 of 8 on third down conversions in the Windy City and the Monsters of the Midway held the ball for 28:06, while Tampa Bay kept the pigskin for 31:54, going 3 of 12 on third down and 2 of 2 on fourth down.

Atlanta struggled at Pittsburgh last Sunday, taking a 41-17 loss against the Steelers at Heinz Field. Atlanta trailed 13-10 at the intermission before the Steelers took control of the action in the second half, outscoring the Falcons 28-7 in the final 30 minutes of action. The Faclons saw RB James Connor rush for 110 yards and a pair of TDs and Ben Roethlisberger and WR Antonio Brown connect for a pair of passing TDs, as Pittsburgh outrushed Atlanta 131-62. Roethlisberger threw for 250 yards and three TDs (WR Ju Ju Smith-Schuster caught the other TD pass), while Atlanta’s Matt Ryan threw for 285 yards and a TD to WR Mohamed Sanu but was sacked six times in the Steel City. Atlanta was 6 of 14 on third down (the Falcons were 1 of 3 on fourth down) and held the ball for 30:52, while the Steelers kept the ball for 29:08 and went 9 of 12 on third down tries.

Atlanta leads the series 25-24, while Tampa Bay has outscored Atlanta 1,052-1,027. Atlanta swept the series last year and has won the last three meetings with the Bucs (Tampa Bay’s last win over Atlanta came in 2016, when they took a 31-24 win in Atlanta)

Atlanta erased a 3-3 first quarter tie against Tampa Bay, took a 20-6 lead with them to the break and came away 34-20 winners in the week 12 contest in the Big Peach. Falcons WR Julio Jones burned Tampa Bay for 253 yards with a pair of TD catches, one from Ryan, the other from fellow WR Mohamed Sanu, as the Falcons outrushed Tampa Bay 148-94, with Ryan throwing for 317 yards with no sacks or interceptions, while Fitzpatrick, subbing for Winston, threw for 283 yards with a sack. The Falcons were 11 for 14 on third down tries at Mercedes-Benz Stadium and kept the ball for 30:06, while Tampa Bay was 4 for 11 on third down (1 of 2 on fourth down) and kept the ball for 29:54.

The Falcons made it a clean sweep of the series as the two teams met in the Sunshine State on a Monday night and it was the Falcons coming away 24-21 at Raymond James Stadium in week 15. Although they trailed 10-7 at the intermission, Tampa Bay would eventually pull themselves to within 3 with 4:07 left in regulation when Winston and WR Adam Humphries connected on a 16-yard TD toss and could have sent the contest into overtime but Patrick Murray’s 54-yard field goal try as time expired sailed wide right. Atlanta outrushed Tampa Bay 201-84, with Falcons RB DeVonta Freeman leading everyone with 126 yards and a TD. Ryan threw for 212 yards and a TD, while Winston paced Tampa Bay with 299 yards and three TDS (neither threw an interception, Ryan was sacked once, Winston twice). Atlanta was 9 of 16 on third down tries in the Sunshine State and kept the ball for 33:15, while the Buccaneers were 4 of 8 on third down and held the ball for 26:45.

In the week 12 contest in the Big Peach, the Falcons covered the 8 1/2-point spread with their 14-point win and both clubs covered the 48 over/under with 54 points. In the Monday night contest in Tampa Bay in week 15, while Atlanta won the contest, they did not cover the 6 1/2-point spread, winning by 3 and the 48 over/under was safe and sound, as both clubs combined for 45 points. Atlanta’s favored by 3 1/2 in the Big Peach and the over/under’s 58. Both teams would love nothing more than to get out of the NFC South cellar and overtake New Orleans. Atlanta covers the 3 1/2 and wins in the Big Peach.

Pittsburgh (2-2-1) at Cincinnati (4-1), 1 p.m. on CBS and DirecTV 705. They still don’t like each other. Don’t expect any Facebook friend requests or Christmas Cards exchanged.

Bengals.

Steelers.

A pair of AFC North rivals meet along the shores of the Ohio River as Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers make their way to Cincinnati to face off against Andy Dalton and the first-place Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium.

Pittsburgh took Atlanta to the woodshed last Sunday at Heinz Field, coming away 41-17 winners over the Falcons in the Steel City. Pittsburgh held a slim 13-10 lead at the intermission before taking control of the action in the second half, outscoring the Falcons 28-7 in the final 30 minutes of action. Steelers RB James Connor rushed for 110 yards and a pair of TDs and Roethlisberger and WR Antonio Brown connect for a pair of passing TDs, as Pittsburgh outrushed Atlanta 131-62. Roethlisberger threw for 250 yards and three TDs (WR Ju Ju Smith-Schuster caught the other TD pass), while Atlanta’s Matt Ryan threw for 285 yards and a TD to WR Mohamed Sanu but was sacked six times in the Steel City. Atlanta was 6 of 14 on third down (the Falcons were 1 of 3 on fourth down) and held the ball for 30:52, while the Steelers kept the ball for 29:08 and went 9 of 12 on third down tries.

Cincinnati erased a 14-0 deficit at the half against Miami at Paul Brown Stadium last Sunday and came away 27-17 winners. The Benglas scored all 27 of their second half points unchallenged to take the win over the Dolphins, who actually outrushed the Bengals 128-103. Dalton threw for 248 yards and a TD to HB Joe Mixon for the winners, while Miami was paced by Ryan Tannehill’s 185 yards and a TD (Tannehill was sacked three times and picked off twice, while Dalton threw an interception with a pair of sacks). The Bengals were 2 of 11 on third down tries and kept the ball for 30:35, while the Dolphins were 4 of 13, 1 of 1 on third and fourth downs, keeping the ball for 29:25.

The Steelers lead the series 60-35 (which includes games played at Riverfront Stadium and Three Rivers Stadium), they’ve outscored the Bengals 2,100-1,673 and have won the last five regular season contests, including a sweep of the 2017 series (the Bengals’ last win over Pittsburgh came in 2015, when they were 16-10 winners in Pittsburgh).

Week seven… the Steel City. Pittsburgh came away with the 29-14 win at Heinz Field. The Steelers led 20-14 at the break before they would separate themselves from the Bengals in the second half. Roethlisberg and Dalton each threw a pair of TD passes but it was the Chris Boswell show as he connected on five field goals in the contest (Boswell’s longest was 49 yards with 5:28 left in the third). LeVeon Bell rushed for 134 yards as the Steelers outrushed Cincy 152-71, while Roethlisberger threw for 224 yards (Dalton threw for 140 yards with four sacks and two interceptions). The Steelers were 2 of 11 on third down (1 of 3 on fourth down conversions) and held the ball for 35:15, while the Bengals kept the pigskin for 24:45, going 3 of 11 and 1 of 2 on third and fourth down tries.

Week 13 saw the Steelers complete the series sweep, taking a 23-20 win at Paul Brown Stadium in week 13. After trailing 17-3 at the half, Pittsburgh erased that deficit in the second half by outscoring the Bengals 20-3, holding Cincy to a 41-yard field from Randy Bullock in the third quarter. The lone bright spot for the Bengals was that they did outrush Pittsburgh 130-92 but Roethlisberger torched the Bengals for 290 yards, while Dalton threw for 234 yards. Steelers WR Antonio Brown let all recievers with 101 yards on eight catches (Brown was targeted 15 times), while Bengals WR A.J. Green caught seven balls for 77 yards with a pair of TDs. The Bengals were 50 percent on third down tries, going 7 of 14 and ruled the clock as they kept the ball for 30:11, while the Steelers kept the pigskin for 29:49, going 4 of 12 on third down tries, 1 of 1 on fourth down.

Pittsburgh’s 15-point win in the week seven contest allowed them to cover the 5 1/2 point spread and both teams covered the 40 over/under with 43 points. The Steelers were favored by 5 1/2 in the week 13 contest at Paul Brown Stadium and while they took the win, they did not cover the spread and the 43 1/2 barely stayed intact as both teams missed it by 1/2 points. Cincinnati’s favored by 2 1/2 and the over/under’s 53. Both numbers make sense and both teams can score points when they want or need to. Right now, the Bengals are the kings of the AFC North mountain, while the Steelers would like to take that spot back. Steelers prevail on the road and covers the 2 1/2.

Los Angeles Chargers (3-2) at Cleveland (2-2-1), 1 p.m. on CBS and 706. Contenders meet along the shores of Lake Erie as the Los Angeles Chargers travel to Cleveland for a showdown with the much-improved Browns at First Energy Field. Both clubs took wins at home in last week’s action.

The Chargers used a pair of Philip Rivers TD passes to take care of Oakland 26-10 at Stub Hub Center. Los Angeles led 17-3 at the intermission in southern California and never looked back, outscoring the Silver and Black 9-7 in the final 30 minutes of play. San Diego outrushed Oakland 79-41 and Rivers threw for 339 yards and the two TDs without an interception, while Derek Carr threw for 268 yards with a TD, three sacks and an interception.

The Chargers lead the series 16-9-1 (which includes games that were played in San Diego) and have outscored the Browns 612-  498. The Chargers were 19-10 victors in their last meeting, which took place last year on the West Coast (Cleveland’s last win over the Chargers came on Christmas Eve of 2016, when tney won 20-17).

While they did win the game, they did not cover the spread, winning by 9 and the 43 over/under stayed safe, as both teams combined for only 29 points. Cleveland’s favored by 1 with a 44 over/under. The Cleveland Browns right now are “Must See TV” this season and they’re already better than most expected. Browns cover the 1 in Cleveland and take the win at home.

Buffalo (2-3) at Houston (2-3), 1 p.m. on CBS and DirecTV 707. Buffalo and Houston meet in the Lone Star State for an AFC showdown at NRG Stadium. Both teams are coming off home wins in last Sunday’s action.

Buffalo rallied from a 12-10 deficit in the final seconds of the contest to take a 13-12 win over Tennessee, thanks to a 46-yard field goal by Stephen Hauschka as time expired. The Bills led 7-6 at the half and led 10-9 before the Titans’ Ryan Succop connected on a 50-yard field goal with 4:43 left to lead 12-10. The Bills then proceeded to use all of the 4:43 that was left, using an 11-play, 47-yard drivet to set up Hauschka’s game winner. Rookie QB Josh Allen threw for 82 yards and scored the game’s lone TD from 14 yards out to open the scoring in the game. After that, the kickers took over all the scoring in the game in upstate New York as Succop accounted for all four of Tennesee’s field goals, while Hauschka tallied two, including the game-winner. Buffalo outrushed Tennessee 144-100 and Tennessee’s Marcus Mariota threw for 129 yards in the loss (both Mariota and Allen threw an interception, Mariota was sacked twice, Allen was sacked once).

Houston led 10-6 at the break before the Cowboys took control and took a 13-10 lead with 11:52 left in the third quarter on a 3-yard TD toss from Dak Prescott to WR Allen Hurns. Houston’s Ka’imi Fairbairn would then give his team the lead back with a pair of field goals for a 16-13 lead. Dallas would tie the contest with 5:39 left in regulation when Brett Maher connected on a 48-yard field goal. The teams then went into the overtime and Dallas got the ball first but could only get to the Texans’ 42-yard line before punting and that would be the last time Dallas would see the ball as Houston would engineer an 8-play, 72 yard drive that took 3:43 of clock and ended with Fairbairn booting the game-winner with 1:50 left in the overtime. While Dallas outrushed Houston 98-88, DeShaun Watson outpaced Prescott, throwing for 375 yards with a TD toss to WR Keke Coutee (Prescott threw for 208 yards; Watson was picked off once and sacked once, while Prescott was sacked twice and threw two interceptions).

The Bills were 30-21 winners in 2015 along the shores of Lake Erie, while Houston’s last win came in the Lone Star State in 2014 by a final of 23-17. The odds makers like Houston as 10 point favorites at home with aa 41 over/under. The Bills may not be the second coming of the 67 Packers and they’re not 10 points bad. They’ll make it close for the Texans, who take this one at home in the Lone Star State.

GangGreen’s favored by 2 1/2 and the over/under’s 45 1/2. You might want to take a pass on this one and watch that “Law & Order: SVU” marathon on USA (there’s nothing sexier than seeing Olivia Benson deal with a criminal!). Jets cover the 2 1/2 and win in the Meadowlands.

Chicago’s favored by 3 in the Sunshine State and the over/under’s 41 1/2. Da Bears are the kings of the NFC North mountain, while the Dolphins are chasing Brady and the Pats in the AFC East.

Holding off a late Philadelhia rally, Minnesota came away 23-21 winners in a rematch of last year’s NFC Championship game in the City of Brotherly Love. The Purple Gang led 17-3 at the half before the defending Super Bowl champrs would go on to outscore the Vikings 18-6 in the final 30 minutes of action. The Vikings broke a 3-3 tie with 4:12 left before the intermission when Vikings DL Linval Joseph lived a lineman’s dream as he picked up a Carson Wentz fumble and returned it 64 yards for a TD to take the lead. WR Adam Thielen and QB Kirk Cousins would then tack on a 3-yard TD pass before the intermission to give the Vikings a 17-3 at that point. Philadelphia would chip away at Minnesota’s lead, pulling to within two with 69 seconds left when TE Zach Ertz and Wentz connected on a 7-yard TD toss.

Including games played in St. Louis, Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington and the Metrodome, the Vikings lead the series 14-11 and the Vikings have outscored the Desert Angry Birds 595-559. The Vikings won the last meeting with the Cardinals, coming away 30-24 in the Twin Cities in 2016, while Arizona’s last win over Minnesota came in the desert in 2015 by a final of 23-20. Minnesota’s favored by 10 1/2 in the Land of 10,000 Lakes and the over/under’s 42 1/2. While the 42 1/2 makes sense, the 10 1/2 is a bit steep. The Cardinals aren’t that bad and they’ll make it closer than that but the Vikings prevail in the Twin Cities.

Seattle’s favored by 3 on the other side of the Atlantic and the over’under’s 47 1/2. While this one’s not exactly “DRILL WORTHY,” it might be worth your time watching. Oakland makes this one interesting but Seattle prevails on the other side of the Big Pond.

Carolina (3-1) at Washington (2-2), 1 p.m. on FOX and DirecTV 713. The Carolina Panthers and Cam Newton make a 6-hour, 45-mintue trip up I-95 to face off against the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field.

Washington’s last win? 2006, also in Landover 17-13. Washington’s favored by 1 1/2 points and the over/under’s 44 1/2. Both numbers make some sense. Carolina’s trying to keep pace with the Saints in the NFC South, while the Redskins are trying to stay on top of the NFC East mountain. HAIL TO THE REDSKINS! Washington covers the 1 1/2 and wins in Landover.

The Rams are favored by 7 with a 53 over/under. Will the Broncos stay unbeatend or will the Broncos be the one to knock the kings off the mountain? The Rams stay on top and take the win, although Denver will make things closer than the 7.

Dallas would tie the contest with 5:39 left in regulation when Brett Maher connected on a 48-yard field goal. The teams then went into the overtime and Dallas got the ball first but could only get to the Texans’ 42-yard line before punting and that would be the last time Dallas would see the ball as Houston would engineer an 8-play, 72 yard drive that took 3:43 of clock and ended with Fairbairn booting the game-winner with 1:50 left in the overtime. While Dallas outrushed Houston 98-88, DeShaun Watson outpaced Prescott, throwing for 375 yards with a TD toss to WR Keke Coutee (Prescott threw for 208 yards; Watson was picked off once and sacked once, while Prescott was sacked twice and threw two interceptions).

After that, the kickers took over all the scoring in the game in upstate New York as Succop accounted for all four of Tennesee’s field goals, while Hauschka tallied two, including the game-winner. Buffalo outrushed Tennessee 144-100 and Tennessee’s Marcus Mariota threw for 129 yards in the loss (both Mariota and Allen threw an interception, Mariota was sacked twice, Allen was sacked once). The Bills were 4 of 13 on third down, 2 of 3 on fourth down and held on to the ball for 33:49 (including the final 4:43 of the contest), while the Titans were 6 of 12 on third down, keeping the ball for 26:11.

Including games that were played in Houston when the Titans were known as the Oilers, Tennessee leads the series 10-9, while the Ravens have outscored the Titans 351-324. Tennesse would win the last meeting, coming away 23-20 winners in the Music City last year, while Baltimore’s last win over the Titans came in 2014 in Charm City by a final of 21-7.

The week nine contest in the Music City saw Tennessee pull out to a 16-6 lead after 30 minutes of action before they would need to hold off a Baltimore second half rally at Nissan Stadium. While the Ravens did outrush Tennessee 73-71 and Flacco threw for 261 yards, Tennessee’s defense did force a pair of Flacco interceptions in the game, with Mariota throwing for 218 yards. (Both men threw a pair of TDs, Mariota was sacked three times and picked off once, Flacco was sacked twice). Baltimore’s favored by 3 and the over/under’s 41. It’s a slight possibilty that these two clubs could very well meet in the post-season but we have to pick a winner. Tennessee takes the win at home but expect the Ravens to make this one closer than 3 points.

Kansas City (5-0) at New England (3-2), 8:20 p.m. on NBC. Week six action ends in Foxboro as a pair of division leaders meet at Gillette Stadium. The unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs travel to western Massachusetts for a Sunday evening meeting with Tom Brady and the New England Patiots in what could be an AFC playoff matchup.

Kansas City led Jacksonvile 20-0 at the break at Arrowhead Stadium last Sunday, then pulled away to a 30-14 win over the Jaguars. The Chiefs outrushed Jacksonville 126-101 but Blake Bortles threw for 430 yards, while Chiefs QB Pat Mahomes threw for 313 for the winners (Bortles threw for one TD to T.Y. Yeldon, picked off four times and sacked five, while Mahomes threw a pair of interceptions with a sack). Kansas City was 4-12 on third down conversions and kept the ball for 32:43, while the Jaguars were 7 of 16 on third down, 3 of 5 on fourth down tries and kept the ball for 27:17.

Brady throw three TDs and rush for one as they took Indianapolis and Andrew Luck to task with their 38-24 win at Gillette Stadium last Thursday night. New England led 7-0 after the first 15 minutes of action, then take a 24-3 lead at the intermission, even though the Colts would outscore New England in the final 30 minutes by a 21-14 margin. New England outrushed Indy 97-84 and Luck threw for 365 yards, while Brady threw for 341 yards in the Thursday night contest (both men threw three TD passes, each threw a pair of interceptions). New England was 5 of 10 on third down tries at Foxboro and kept the ball for 27:34, while the Colts ruled the clock and kept the pigskin for 32:26, going 7 of 15 on third down, 2 of 3 on fourth down conversions.

Including contests played in Dallas when the Chiefs were known as the Texas, as well as contests at Fenway Park, Swope Field and Schafer Stadium, Kansas City leads the series 18-13-3 and have outscored New England 838-694. They met last year in Foxboro as the two teams opened the 2017 season with the Patriots raising their Super Bowl banner at Gillette Stadium (New England’s last win over the Chiefs came in Foxboro in 2011, when they were 34-3 winners). New England led 17-14 at the half before Kansas City roared back in the final 30 minutes of action to come away 42-27 winners. The Chiefs got a pair of fourth quarter TDs from RB Kareem Hunt and teammate Charcandrick West added a 21-yard run late in the game to seal the deal. Hunt rushed for 148 yards and had one rushing TD, while the Chiefs outrushed New England 185-124. Chiefs QB Alex Smith threw for 368 and four TDs in the come-from-behind win, while Brady threw for 267 yards in the season opener (both men were sacked three times and did not throw an interception). The Chiefs were 4 of 11 on third down conversions and ruled the clock, as they held on to the ball for 30:14, while the Patriots were 29:46 in time of possession, going 5 of 15 on third down, 0 of 2 on fourth down.

Kansas City won by 15 in the 2017 season opener, whici allowed them to cover the 9-point spread (New England was favored) and the 48 over/under was easily taken care of, as the two teams would combine for 69 points. New England’s favored by 3 1/2 in Foxboro and the over/under’s 60. Just the fact that these two teams were in the post-season last year and the Chiefs are one of two unbeaten teams makes this contest “DRILL WORTHY!” (For those of you that know what The Drill is, you are excused. Everyone else, pay attention. We don’t want any rookie mistakes here, k?) After you go to the 9:30 mass on Sunday (the 4:30 vigil mass on Saturday counts as a mass attended, people! Don’t make us send the nuns after you! If we do, it is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OVER!), head to your favorite store (a trip to Wal Mart, Target, K-Mart or Costco counts) and get the vittles and the beverages (soda, beer, wine, coffee, et al… if you live in a state that allows the purchase of the items in question) and invite the co-workers, the neighbors (including that really cute kindergarden teacher that knows what to do with a cover-2 defense) and your cousin Connie (remember her? She’s the one that’s been married twice that’s just turned 58 last June and dates a 43-year old ex-Marine, who’s now a football coach at the high school in your town. She’s also the one that ate an entire Oreo cheesecake, two bags of Cool Ranch Doritos, two bacon cheeseburgers with blue cheese and chugged two 2-liter Cokes at your Super Bowl party last year and didn’t gain a pound. You look at her and say to yourself, “what the hell?”)

The Chiefs are trying to stay unbeaten, while the Pats want revenge from last year’s loss at home. Sorry, New England fans… the revenge plot will have to take a week off. Kansas City may not cover the 3 1/2 but they pull off the upset in Foxboro.

San Francisco (1-4) at Green Bay (2-2-1), 8:15 p.m. Monday on ESPN. Week six action concludes in the land of beer, cheese and BRatwurst as the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers meet at Lambeau Field, with both teams coming off losses in last week”s action.

San Francisco saw Arizona pick up their first win of the 2018 campaign as the Cardinals broke their four-game losing streak with a 28-18 win at Levis’ Stadium in Santa Clara. Arizona led 14-6 at the break, then proceeded to outpace the 49ers 14-12 in the final 30 minutes of action. Although they were outrushed by the 49ers 147-56 and C.J. Beathard threw for  349 yards and a pair of TDs, they saw Josh Rosen throw for 170 yards with a TD and forced five San Francisco turnovers (Beathard threw a pair of interceptions and San Francisco fumbled three times) to take the win. Arizona went 2 of 12 on third down tries in wine country and kept the ball for 19:48, while the 49ers ruled the clock, keeping the ball to themselves for 40:12, going 10 of 17 on third down, 1 of 2 on fourth down.

Green Bay dropped a 31-23 decision at Detroit last Sunday. The Packers trailed 24-0 at the intermission in the Motor City but would outscore the Lions 23-7 in the second half. Green Bay outrushed Detroit 98-94 and Aaron Rodgers threw for 442 yards and three TDs, while Lions signal caller Matthew Stafford threw for 183 yards and three TDs (neither threw an interception, Rodgers was sacked four times, Stafford was sacked three times). Green Bay, who fumbled the ball three times at Ford Field, went 3 of 10 on third down (2 of 2 on fourth down) and ruled the clock as they kept the ball for 33:20, while the Lions were 5 of 13 on third down conversions, holding the ball for 26:40.

Green Bay leads the series 31-27-1 (which includes contests that took place in Milwaukee, Keezar Stadium and Candlestick Park) and have outscored the 49ers 1,210-1,203. Green Bay won the last meeting with San Francisco, taking a 17-3 win at Levis’ Stadium in 2015, while San Francisco’s last win in the series came in 2013 in San Francisco by a final of 34-28.

Prime time has been kind to both clubs and the Packers and 49ers doing quite well on Monday night. San Francisco is 48-25 and is making their first MNF appearance since 2016, while Green Bay is 31-32-1, losing their only prime time appearance last year. Green Bay’s favored by 8 1/2 in the land of cheese, beer and Bratwurst and the over/under’s 46 1/2. Depending on your point of view, this one might be one worth watching or not. Packers may not cover the 8 1/2 but they take the win at Lambeau.

New York Giants at ATLANTA, 8:15 p.m. on ESPN

Philadelphia (2-3) at New York Giants (1-4), 8:20 p.m. on FOX and NFL Network. The two teams don’t like each other. The same can be said for the two cities. A pair of NFC East rivals meet in upstate New Jersey to open play in week six when the defending Super Bowl champs take on Eli Manning and the New York Giants at Met Life Stadium. Both divisional foes took close losses last week and are looking to regroup.

A Philadelphia rally in the second half fell short against Minnesota as they fell to the Vikings 23-21 at Lincoln Financial Field in a rematch of last year’s NFC Championship game. Minnesota led 17-3 at the half before the defending Super Bowl champrs would go on to outscore the Vikings 18-6 in the final 30 minutes of action. The Vikings broke a 3-3 tie with 4:12 left before the intermission when Vikings DL Linval Joseph lived a lineman’s dream as he picked up a Carson Wentz fumble and returned it 64 yards for a TD to take the lead. WR Adam Thielen and QB Kirk Cousins would then tack on a 3-yard TD pass before the intermission to give the Vikings a 17-3 at that point. Philadelphia would chip away at Minnesota’s lead, pulling to within two with 69 seconds left when TE Zach Ertz and Wentz connected on a 7-yard TD toss. Philadelphia’s onside kick failed as the Vikings recovered and ran out the clock. Philadelphia outrushed Minnesota 81-77 and Wentz threw for 311 yards with a pair of TDs, while Cousins threw for 301 yards with a TD (neither man threw an interception, Wentz was sacked three times, Cousins sacked once). Philadelphia was 2 of 9 on third down but found success on their only fourth down try and kept the ball for 27:13, while the Vikings ruled the clock, holding the ball for 32:47, going 4 of 11 on third down to take the 2-point win.

Manning and the Giants saw Carolina and Graham Gano take victory from their hands last Sunday in Charlotte, falling on the short end of a 33-31 loss at Bank of America Stadium. Trailing 20-10 at the intermission, the Giants would later pull their way into the lead when Manning and WR Odell Beckham caught a 33-yard TD pass with 8:08 left in regulation (Beckham, who had eight catches for 131 yards, threw a 57-yard TD pass to rookie RB Sequan Barkley earlier in the game, became the first player to have a TD pass and catch in the same contest since Mark Clayton did it for Baltimore in week eight in 2008). Gano would give the Panthers the lead back with 2:16 left, booting a 39-yard try before Manning and Barkley connected on a 15-yard TD toss with 65 seconds left. Carolina would then drive almost the length of the field with no time outs, using an 8-play, 30-yard drive that used 67 seconds of clock, allowing Gano to kick the game winner with one second left on the clock. Carolina outrushed Big Blue 118-50 and Manning threw for 326 yards and a pair of TDs, while Cam Newton threw for 237 yards and a pair of TDs (one to Collin McCaffery, the other to Curtis Samuel; both Manning and Newton threw a pair of interceptions and both were sacked once). The Giants found themselves going 0 of 7 on third down (1 of 2 on fourth down) and held on to the ball for 24:33, while Carolina ruled the clock and held the pigskin for 35:27, going 4 of 13 and 1 of 1 on third and fourth down tries.

Including contests that took place at Yankee Stadium, the Yale Bowl, JFK Stadium, Giants Stadium and Veterans Stadium, the Giants lead the series 83-81-2 and have outscored the Eagles 3,206-3,150. The Eagles have won the last three meetings in the series, including sweeping the series last year (New York’s last win came in 2016 in the Meadowlands by a final of 28-23).

The first meeting? The City of Brotherly Love in week three. The Eagles led 7-0 at the break and took a 14-0 lead at the end of the third quarter and had to survive a late Giants charge in the fourth quarter to take a 27-24 win. Philadelphia secured the contest thanks to a 61-yard field goal by Josh Elliott as the clock struck :00. The Giants used three Manning TD passes in the fourth quarter (two to Beckham, the other going to Russell Shepherd) and an Aldrick Rosas field goal to take a 24-21 lead. Elliott would tie things with a 46-yard field goal with 51 seconds left before kicking the game winner 51 seconds later. Philadelphia out-rushed Big Blue 193-49, with Carson Wentz throwing for 176 yards and a TD (Wentz was sacked three times), while Manning threw for 366 yards with a pair of interceptions to go with the three TDs. Philadelphia found themselves going 5 for 14 on third down (they were 2 of 3) and they kept the ball for 37:32, while the Giants were 3 of 10 on third down (0 of 2 on fourth down) and held the ball for 22:28.

Philadelphia completed the sweep in the Meadowlands in week 15 as they erased a 23-21 deficit at the intermission and came away with the 34-29 win. The Eagles would go on to outscore the Giants 13-6 in the final 30 minutes of action at Met Life Stadium to seal the deal and New York’s fate in the process. The Giants would eventually pull themselves to within 2 with 1:57 left when Manning and Tavares King connected on a 57-yard strike (they would miss the extra point) before the Eagles restored order when Elliott booted a 20-yard field goal with 3:56 left in the contest. The Eagles out-rushed the Giants 108-75 and Manning threw for 434 yards and three TDs, while Nick Foles, taking over for the injured Wentz, threw for 237 yards with four TDs (each man was sacked once). Philadelphia went 6 of 13 on third down tries in the Meadowlands (they were 0 for 1 on fourth down) and kept the ball for 30:53, while the Giants were 10 of 18 on third down, 0 of 1 on fourth down and held on to the ball for 29:07.

In the week three contest in Philly, the Eagles were favored by 6 but would wind up winning by 3. Both clubs did manage to take care of the 48 1/2 over/under by tallying 51 points. In the rematch in the Meadowlands that allowed the Eagles to sweep the series, Philly was favored by 7 1/2 but won by 5. The 40 over/under was easily covered as the two clubs merged for 63 points. The Eagles are favored by 3 and the over/under’s 44. Both teams are struggling in the NFC East and the loser of this will have to work harder to keep their heads above water. For the winner? Redemption from a loss from last week. Eagles cover the 3 and win in the Meadowlands.
