Many hot topics of this sixth week NFL: protagonists, big absents, unknowns and possible torment. Here are the hottest topics of the week ...
Marshawn Lynch, the former on duty
Almost 8000 yards earned, 65 TD and a ring. This is the summary of the 6 years in Seattle by Marshawn Lynch. The RB of the Raiders will face for the first time, after leaving them 3 years ago, "his" Seahawks. "Beastmode" has become famous in the city "Emerald" thanks to its plays that have made fans fall in love. It will be interesting to see him at work against his teacher Pete Carroll.
Clash of titans
In football to win the games you have to dominate in the trenches. There are few players capable of mastering the scrimmage line: three of these will be tackled in Broncos-Rams. The hosts can count on Von Miller, who started the season with 4 sacks and 2 forced fumbles. In the Suh-Donald couple the guests have a strong point of defense. The two combine for 30 tackles and 6 sacks. The battle on the front is served.
Another online battle will take place between Cowboys and Jaguars. Jacksonville can count on a scary DL: Calais Campbell, Yannick Ngakoue, Malik Jackson. Dallas instead has a very strong Offensive Line: Tyron Smith, Zack Martin and La'el Collins, some of the components. Who will win the challenge on the scrimmage line will win the game!
Better than Top Gun
From the battles in the trenches we pass to the air ones. Falcons-Bucs promises many amazing acrobatics seen the protagonists involved. For Atlanta, the Julio Jones phenomenon and the explosive rookie Calvin Ridley. Tampa will respond with lightning-fast DeSean Jackson and the devastating Mike Evans. It will be up to Matt Ryan and Jameis Winston to start their own aces. You will not be bored in Cincinnati, where the hosts will host the Pittsburgh Steelers.
As usual, the tension will be very high between these two teams that share mutual hatred. The two most awaited players are the two receivers: Antonio Brown and AJ Green. The challenge between the two promises fire and flame.
Underdog is beautiful
After winning the photofinish on the Ravens, Cleveland wants to keep on dreaming. The Browns dragged by first choice, Baker Mayfield, will face the gruff Chargers of Philip Rivers, back from two consecutive victories. The challenge will be all uphill for the hosts, but it was also with Baltimore ...
The Chicago Bears, returning from the bye week, will also return to the field. The Bears, leading the NFC North, will try to impose themselves in the field of Dolphins and to do so they will rely on their phenomenon: Khalil Mack. Will the former Raiders succeed in dragging his own to the fourth consecutive victory?
Record and unbeaten
The Rams must defend the unbeaten against the Broncos. Los Angeles goes on the hunt for the sixth victory in a row with Todd Gurley ready already to exceed the double digit of TD achieved. Jared Goff will try to maintain the leadership in the yards launched, even if the defense of the Broncos at home is not to be underestimated.
Adam Thielen is chasing the sixth race in a row above 100 yards, which has never happened in the history of the modern NFL. It will not be a simple mission for the Minnesota product that will face the fearsome CB Patrick Peterson. Will the WR succeed in continuing the strip?
Present vs future
The present is called Tom Brady and in Sunday Night Football will play against the new advancing: Pat Mahomes. The Kansas City QB at this start of the season was devastating as opposed to the MVP 2017, which took a while to level up. Brady at home against QB under 25 has an almost spotless record: 41-1. The only defeat curiously came against Colin Kaepernick in 2012.
In addition to the duel in the field, the game will count a lot also for the control of the AFC. The Patriots have already lost to the Jaguars and can not afford to lose even against the Chiefs. Mahomes, on the other hand, wants to defend the unbeatenness of his Kansas City and above all to take the important scalp of Tom Brady.
