Pittsburgh Steelers 4-2-0
Miami Dolphins 2-4-0

Game Recap: MIAMI-Pittsburgh should be a lock to win with the injuries to Miami's secondary. I expect Maurkice Pouncey and Mike Pouncey to dominate as both Pouncey brothers have huge games.

Miami did a good job running the ball early with Ryan Shazier out for the Steelers. The Dolphins took a 3-0 lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Pittsburgh took a 6-3 lead. The Steelers went for 2 and Le'veon Bell caught a pass to make it 8-3 heading into the second quarter.

Cincinnati Bengals 2-4-0
New England Patriots 5-1-0

Tight end Rob Gronkowski had 7 receptions, 162 receiving yards, and 1 receiving touchdown. Gronkowski was awesome today, but he needs to learn to keep his mouth shut without taunting defenders.

Kansas City Chiefs 3-2-0
Oakland Raiders 4-2-0

Game Recap: OAKLAND-Kansas City had two weeks to prepare for Oakland with the bye week. Oakland needed a win today to move into first place.

Andre Holmes caught a touchdown pass from Derek Carr. Oakland took a 7-0 lead before Spencer Ware tied the game at 7 after one quarter.

Jamaal Charles ran it in for a rushing touchdown. Kansas City took a 13-7 lead after missing the extra point. Cairo Santos kicked a field goal before halftime and it was no good with the Chiefs leading 13-7 at halftime.

Dontari Poe ran it in to give the Chiefs a 20-7 lead before Cairo Santos gave Kansas City a 23-7 lead after three quarters.

Both teams got field goals in the fourth quarter. Kansas City won 26-10. Kansas City's offensive line dominated today. Left tackle Eric Fisher, left guard Parker Ehinger, center Mitch Morse, and right tackle Mitchell Schwartz all dominated today with pass blocking, run blocking, and zone blocking. Kansas City can either move Ehinger to right guard and draft a new left guard or draft a right guard. Either way, Kansas City is now 3-2 heading into week 7 while Oakland fell to 4-2 after blowing a critical opportunity to move to 5-1 and be second in the AFC behind the New England Patriots.

Atlanta Falcons 4-2-0
Seattle Seahawks 4-1-0

Seattle held Atlanta to a 4 and out despite a no call from a pass interference play in the fourth quarter.

Seattle won 26-24. The biggest reason Seattle won was due to the play of Bobby Wagner. Middle linebacker Bobby Wagner had 3 solo tackles, 11 assisted tackles, 14 total tackles, and 1 quarterback hurry. Wagner made huge plays throughout the day to help Seattle defeat the Atlanta Falcons.

Dallas Cowboys 5-1-0
Green Bay Packers 3-2-0

Game Recap: GREEN BAY-Dak Prescott needed a few more pass attempts to break Tom Brady's record for most passing attempts without an inerception by a rookie.

Dak Prescott got the record. Prescott did struggle in this game. The biggest reason Dallas defeated Green Bay 30-16 was due to Ezekiel Elliot who had 157 rushing yards. Dallas improves to 5-1 and Green Bay falls to 3-2.

Indianapolis Colts 2-4-0
Houston Texans 4-2-0

Game Recap: HOUSTON-This game would decide who gets first place in the AFC South. Will Fuller is active for the Texans at wide receiver while Patrick Robinson was inactive as the Colts #2 boundary cornerback.

Both the Texans and Colts failed to score on their first drives. Indianapolis punted the ball to Houston after being stopped on their first drive. The Texans punted on their second drive.

Andrew Luck scrambled for a first down on third down. That scramble kept the Colts second drive alive. Kevin Johnson did a great job covering Philip Dorsett on third down.
