Week 6 NFL Previews
This week’s edition of Thursday Night Football features the defending Super Bowl champion, The Buccaneers, taking on the Eagles in Philadelphia. Tampa Bay lead the NFC South with a 4-1 record, however, are dealing with a number of injuries to their depleted secondary. The Eagles are 2-3 following last week’s upset win over the Panthers and will need another strong performance from their sophomore quarterback, Jalen Hurts, if they want any chance at taking down the champs.
While the Jaguars are technically the home team in this matchup, the game will be taking place at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium in London, England. This isn’t the sexiest matchup on paper with both teams combining for a record of 1-9, but it may still offer some decent value for the NFL betting community. They key factor in this game will be who plays quarterback for the Dolphins; Miami will be hoping that Tua Tagovailoa is able to return from injury, as backup Jacoby Brissett has struggled in replacement duty. Should Tua miss out on the action, the Jags, and first overall pick Trevor Lawrence, will have a real shot at earning their first win of the season.
Two of the best teams in the AFC take the field in this contest as the Chargers and Ravens go head to head at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. So far this season, both teams are 4-1 and will both be looking to maintain control of their respective divisions. The Chargers have looked great so far this season, with second-year quarterback Justin Herbert exceeding his expectations after being crowned last year’s Offensive Rookie of the Year. As for The Ravens, the team will be ready for anything after pulling off a wild comeback on Monday Night Football. No doubt they will be relying on QB, Lamar Jackson, and the team’s powerful running game to take down the Chargers.
Arizona is the only undefeated team remaining in the NFL, due largely in part to the incredible play of QB Kyler Murray. The diminutive signal caller has torched opposing defenses so far this season with both his arm and legs, however, he will have a tough test going up against Cleveland’s solid secondary. Despite suffering a heart-breaking loss to the Chargers, the Browns remain one of the better teams in the AFC. With Baker Mayfield at quarterback and an elite running back tandem in Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, the Browns may have what it takes to hand Arizona their first loss of the year.
