Around the NFL Week 6: Surprises, Disappointments & New York Magic

With only one game left in Week 6 of the NFL, several teams have established themselves as potential Super Bowl contenders. On the other hand, there have been some major disappointments early this year and a surprise run from a pair of New York teams.

Top Teams

The Philadelphia Eagles remain the lone unbeaten team in the NFL. Coming off a 26-17 win over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday Night, the Eagles are 6-0.

Quarterback Jalen Hurts continues to take tremendous strides as he has thrown for 1,514 yards and six touchdowns. He has also added 293 yards on the ground.

The New York Giants, Minnesota Vikings and Buffalo Bills are the only one-loss teams this year, while the Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans lead their divisions. The NFC North, NFC South and AFC North all have a tie atop the division including three teams with a record of 3-3 in the San Francisco 49ers, Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks.

Major Disappointments

One of the biggest disappointments this season has been the Las Vegas Raiders. Despite playing in one of the most competitive divisions in the league, the Raiders made a huge splash in the offseason with the acquisition of Davante Adams.

However, Las Vegas is 1-4 this year, with its lone win coming against the Denver Broncos. The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns are off to rough starts as well. Both teams are 2-4 and sit last in the AFC North.

The Arizona Cardinals are also in last place in their division with a record of 2-4. However, they have some help on the way with the acquisition of Robby Anderson from the Carolina Panthers and the return of Deandre Hopkins from his suspension in the team’s next game on Thursday night against the New Orleans Saints.

New York Magic

The New York Jets and Giants were more likely to contend for the first overall pick than the postseason coming into this year. However, the two teams have combined to win nine of their 12 games this year. They both sit in second place in their respective divisions.

The Jets are coming off a stunning win over the Green Bay Packers 27-10 at Lambeau Field. They have now won back-to-back games after beating the Miami Dolphins in Week 5 and head back on the road for another big game against the Denver Broncos this week.

The Giants also had a magical win this week, beating the Baltimore Ravens 24-20. Despite trailing by ten in the final quarter, quarterback Daniel Jones led the Giants to a comeback win to move to 5-1. They are set to play the Jacksonville Jaguars this week, followed by the Houston Texans and Detroit Lions.
