For the second straight week, everyone goes 9-6 and gets there a bunch of different ways. Chiefs and Rams remain undefeated and the BROWNS get a big home win (in OT of course) to improve to 2-2-1, which ties them for last with the Steelers in the tight AFC North (Bengals lead at 4-1). Tom Brady looks ageless and there is simply no way the Patriots lose the AFC East (although he will have a tough test in Foxboro this weekend as Patrick Mahomes and the undefeated Chiefs come to town). The Titans have hung around and scratched out three wins in the AFC South, but I think the Jaguars are the best team and will be in first come the end of the season. With a big win against the Giants on TNF, the Eagles are back atop the NFC East, where I think they remain by going just 10-6 and taking care of weaker opponents in their division. The Bears are perhaps the biggest surprise so far this year at 3-1 and favored on the road this week against 3-2 Miami. Speaking of ageless, Drew Brees deserves as much praise as Brady, as he has the Saints 4-1 and Mark Engram back from suspension. The Panthers will give them a run for their money, but Saints look like a playoff team for sure. Lots to unfold still with only five weeks plus a game in the books. Here are our picks for Week 6:
