How will the NFL regular season play out in Week 6 after a wild Week 5? We have some bold predictions for this slate of games, including a Jaguars win.

After a wild week of NFL action in Week 5, it’s time for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Philadelphia Eagles to kick off Week 6 on Thursday Night Football.

At the conclusion of this week of games, we’ll officially be one-third of the way done with the 2021 NFL season. Time flies when you’re having fun.

A handful of teams are on a bye in week six but there are a handful of marquee matchups and plenty of opportunities for home teams to play…spoiler? Let’s take a look around the league and make some bold predictions ahead of NFL Week 6 action.

15. Buccaneers QB Tom Brady still throws 4 TDs with his injured thumb in NFL Week 6

Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady may have some “discomfort” with his thumb, but my bold prediction for the start of Week 6 is that he’s going to GOAT through the discomfort and still throw four touchdown passes against a weak Eagles secondary.

Or are they? The Eagles have the third-best pass defense in the NFL in terms of yards allowed, but they have given up a couple of touchdowns per game.

The Eagles gave up over 300 yards through the air against the opponents that made sense — Dallas and Kansas City — and I think that’s going to happen again against Brady.

Brady already has three games this season with four or more touchdown passes included two already with five touchdowns.

14. Eagles WR DeVonta Smith has 150 receiving yards vs.  Bucs in NFL Week 6

In the last couple of weeks, Eagles rookie DeVonta Smith has been ramping it up in a big way.

He has 14 receptions for 199 yards over the last two weeks, and now he’s facing off against a Buccaneers pass defense that ranks 32nd in the NFL.

It’s time for DeVonta Smith to feast for a 150-yard game in prime time, even if it comes in an Eagles loss.
