OK, I ended up 9-5, one better than last week, not great and way to go Denver!

Week #6

Pit @ Ten - Pit 20-17 >> Ten 26-23 - Not enough in the tank for the Steelers to win on the road

Oak @ Atl - Atl 48-21 >> Atl 23-20 - Another late escape for Ryan on a game they should have lost
KC @ TB - TB 28-20 >> TB 38-10 - Nothing to see here. Were KC fans craving Quinn at QB? How'd that go?
Ind @ NYJ - NYJ 17-10 >> NYJ 35-9 - Lots of emotional energy spent last week resulted in flat effort by Ind
Cin @ Cle - Cle 24-20 >> Cle 34-24 - Browns are alive and have been looking better of late.
Det @ Phi - Phi 33-17 >> Det 26-23 (OT) - Shades of last year for Eagles - turnovers, losing late leads
StL @ Mia - Mia 22-13 >> Mia 17-14 - Doing better than expected at 3-3 and tied for first with everybody
Dal @ Bal - Bal 27-23 >> Bal 31-29 - Cowboys let upset slip away. Lewis out for the season, OUCH

Buf @ Az - Az 24-14 >> Buf 19-16 (OT) - Buf defense looked competent against weak Az offense
NE @ Sea - Sea 20-17 >> Sea 24-23 - Seahawks are pretty much unbeatable at home - even without replacement refs.
NYG @ SF - SF 34-23 >> NYG 26-3 - Did not expect that from SF.
Min @ Was - Was 23-20 >> Was 38-26 - RG III putting hope and inspiration into Skins.

GB @ Hou - GB 31-28 >> GB 42-24 - Statement game for GB; Hou needs to learn to take effort to the next level

Den @ SD - SD 31-24 >> Den 35-24 - Two different games took place here. 35-0 second half squashes Bolts.

Bye - NO, Car, Chi, Jac

----------------------------------

Big winners - Atl, GB, Den, NYG and Cle

Big losers - Hou, SD, Phi, SF

Rookie QB's went 4-1 on the week.

RG III looks like the vision of what people had for Vick 10 years ago.

NYG, GB put themselves back on the radar for Super Bowl contention with strong efforts.

AFC East - total parity - all at 3-3.

----------------------------------
9-5 for the week - with two OT losses and SD not playing the second half - so no complaints

NFC West might actually throw out two teams. Seattle's looking prominent if their offense can score. That TNF game against the Niners should be a good game to watch.
Didn't realize that until you said it. NFC is beating up on the AFC teams this year.

The two teams with winning records square off next week. Home field advantage may be at stake.

Yeah. I honestly don't even know what to expect as a Texans fan next week. It really depends on what team will show up.

Ravens are hobbled with all of their injuries, but still are a very strong team, especially offensively.

I'm sure the Patriots and Steelers will get going soon, after that though, I don't know who the WC teams are. Maybe San Diego/Denver. The two WC spots are really wide open in the AFC.

You're right on the Texans/Ravens - tough game to choose.

I went Texans because of Ravens missing key players and Texans will be crazy after the loss to the Packers.

I can't see Matt Schaub being crazy about anything. Rodgers came with an attitude to Houston. have not seen that in Schaub yet.

Chris Mortenson must have picked the Lions or Packers or both since he has a 9-5 record
