The best NFL Week 6 games for fans to tune in for on Sunday.
Over the past couple of weeks, COVID-19 has been prevalent in the NFL. Not only was the Patriots vs. Broncos game scheduled for Week 5 pushed back to Week 6 but the Bills vs. Titans game getting moved to Tuesday then pushed Buffalo’s Week 6 game against the Chiefs, initially slated for Thursday, to Monday night.
The result has not only been these games being moved but multiple other games being shuffled throughout the remainder of the 17 weeks in the regular season. Notably, the Jets and Dolphins will now play in Week 6 as their future matchup was pushed ahead to this week in the schedule reshuffling.
Jets vs. Dolphins, however, isn’t one of the best games of the week. That distinction belongs to these five contests, which you should definitely tune into on Sunday in NFL Week 6.
5. San Francisco 49ers vs. Los Angeles Rams
The San Francisco 49ers came into the 2020 season looking to build off of their run to a Super Bowl appearance last season but things have not gone their way. Injuries have hit the Niners hard to this point, most notably with standout defensive linemen Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas being ruled out for the season with ACL injuries. Players such as Raheem Mostert, Dre Greenlaw, Kwon Alexander and Jimmy Garoppolo have all missed time as well.
Of course, Jimmy G returned last week against the Dolphins and things didn’t go well. He completed only 7-of-17 passes on the day with two interceptions before eventually getting benched. Suffice it to say that the 49ers expected things to be going differently through the first five weeks.
On the other hand, the Los Angeles Rams have gotten off to a great start. Jared Goff struggled a season ago as the offensive line didn’t do him any favors. But Goff, the line and the entirety of the Rams have offense have turned things around in the 2020 season as the quarterback has looked the part of the player who led the team to a Super Bowl not long ago.
The Rams defense has looked good as well, giving up only 90 points through five games, the sixth-best defensive mark in the league. They’ve also surrendered the fifth-fewest yards in the NFL. With the NFC West being tight behind Seattle, this will be a big game for both the 49ers and Rams to prove something.
