Around the NFL: The Packers Might Suck, Trouble in Tampa Bay, Josh Allen Tops Mahomes and the Chiefs, More

Chicago Bears

My biggest non-Bears takeaway from Week 6 is that the Packers might actually suck, and I’m all about this development.

Jets Down Rodgers and The Pack

Aaron Rodgers was peeved when there was chatter in the Green Bay locker room about potentially losing to the Jets after losing to the Giants in London last week. Well, I can only imagine (and love) how mad he was this Sunday after Jets rookie Sauce Gardner paraded around the end zone at Lambeau Field with a cheese head on, provoking an onslaught of boos from Packers fans after the Jets topped Green Bay 27-10 on Sunday.

Rodgers completed 26-of-41 for 246 yards, a touchdown, and no interceptions on Sunday. Zach Wilson didn’t do anything spectacular for the Jets, throwing for 110 yards and no scores opposite Rodgers. Jets rookie running back Breece Hall carried New York’s offense with 116 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries.

The Jets played a clean game, turning the ball over not once, and played bend but don’t break defense against the future Hall of Fame quarterback wearing green and gold. Gardner played his tail off in his first matchup with Rodgers, earning the right to stick it to the Lambeau Field crowd after the game.

The Packers might figure some things out as the season chugs along, but there’s no question right now that they’re not a good football team.

Pickett, Trubisky Steal One from Brady and the Bucs

Kenny Pickett (11-18, 67 yards, 1 TD) and Mitch Trubisky (9-12, 144 yards, 1 TD) did just enough under center for the Steelers as they stole a victory from Tom Brady and the Buccaneers, just their second win of the season.

Tom Brady was caught on the sideline chewing his offensive line out, and the Buccaneers are now 3-3 on the season with plenty of question marks.

Tampa Bay has the NFL’s worst running game through six weeks, averaging just 67.5 yards per game. The offense is averaging just 20.2 points per game, putting them into the bottom third of the NFL in scoring. Brady’s 264.5 yards per game is sixth best in the NFL, but the 45-year-old Brady can’t be expected to pass the Buccaneers into the playoffs. Tampa has to figure the rushing game out soon.

Bills Beat the Chiefs in the NFL’s New Favorite Rivalry

The Bills and the Chiefs have put together instant classic after instant classic in recent years, both in the regular season and the playoffs. Sunday was no exception in what has become the NFL’s most intriguing rivalry.

Josh Allen threw for 329 yards, three touchdowns, and zero picks and ran for 32 yards, including this highlight reel scramble:

Mahomes threw for 338 yards and ran for 21 while tossing a pair of touchdown scores to JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman but threw two interceptions.

Extra Points

  • The Patriots’ convincing victory over the Browns this week moved Bill Belichick into a tie with Bears founder George Halas for the second most wins as a head coach (324).
  • Jack Easterby is out in Houston according to Adam Schefter:
  • The Philadelphia Eagles moved to 6-0 with a victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football last night.
  • It sounds like the Cowboys will be getting Dak Prescott back for their Week 7 matchup with the Detroit Lions.
  • The amount of memes material that ‘The Last Dance’ has given us is incredible. I love it; it’s the gift that never stops giving.
  • Joe Burrow and the Bengals topped the Saints on the strength of four touchdowns by Burrow, including a 60-yarder to Ja’Marr Chase.
  • Have we reached the “are the Falcons good?” conversation yet?
  • Same for the Giants …
  • Honestly, it’s a no for me when it comes to the previous two questions, but the Vikings are definitely good:
  • Sunday scores:
