NFL Week 6 schedule: 5 best games to watchBy Matt Verderame
The NFL Week 6 schedule is packed with terrific games. However, these five stand out amongst the crowd come the weekend.
5. Dallas Cowboys at New England Patriots
The Patriots are coming off one of the most uninspiring wins of all time, needing a double-digit comeback to handle Davis Mills and the Houston Texans. With that in mind, they’ll be ready to play this weekend, with Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys coming to town. Dallas is 4-1 and beginning to predictably run away with the lackluster NFC East. A win here, and the crown only gets closer.
4. Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears
It’s the oldest rivalry in football, and somehow a fairly important game. At 4-1, the Packers can take a two-game lead over the Bears in the NFC North with a win at Soldier Field already in hand. Meanwhile, the Bears can pull into a tie — and technically first place — with a victory. Look for Chicago to be raucous on Sunday afternoon, hoping rookie quarterback Justin Fields can take down Aaron Rodgers in their first meeting.

3. Buffalo Bills at Tennessee Titans
Monday night is going to give us some of the best playmakers football has to offer. The Bills come into the game at 4-1 fresh off a 38-20 spanking of the Kansas City Chiefs. Josh Allen is leading the charge under center, while Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley and Emmanuel Sanders are all challenging defenses downfield. Conversely, the Titans have the league’s best back in Derrick Henry, along with receivers A.J. Brown and Julio Jones. Should be a fun one.
2. Arizona Cardinals at Cleveland Browns
You knew we had to have this one on the list. The Cardinals are the league’s only unbeaten team at 5-0, coming off a nice win at home over Trey Lance and the San Francisco 49ers. Arizona is an underdog in this one, with Vegas liking Baker Mayfield and the Browns to hand the Cardinals their first defeat. If Mayfield can play well and engineer a victory, we’ll hear plenty about how he’s deserving of a contract extension at season’s end.
1. Los Angeles Chargers at Baltimore Ravens
Justin Herbert and Lamar Jackson going at it. The Chargers and Ravens are both 4-1, and this game could ultimately decide plenty in terms of playoff seeding in the AFC. Baltimore and Los Angeles have both won some wild games, and this figures to come down to the end.
