7 Grueling Truth’s we learned during week 6 of the 2021 NFL Season

The Ravens are red-hot!

1) The Cardinals are good

First, they blew out the Rams in Los Angeles and now the Browns in Cleveland. The Cardinals almost seem to play better on the road than they do at home. A Cardinals win this weekend will be the first and 7-0 start since the days of Air Coryell in 1974. Kyler Murray is on pace to possibly win an MVP award, and the defense has been an enormous surprise.

2) The Browns are still the Browns

A loaded roster has turned into injuries and a 3-3 start, are the browns just cursed? I don’t believe in curses, but every time the browns look ready to take off, something seems always to happen.

3) The Ravens are on fire

Lamar Jackson has been let loose this season, and it’s paying off big-time for the Ravens. If you need to run to win, Lamar is your guy; if you need to throw the ball, well, Lamar is your guy. So a win over the Bengals this coming weekend could lead to an easy Divisional title for the Ravens.

4) The best thing to happen to the Raiders is the resignation of Jon Gruden

Gruden looked the part as an NFL Head Coach, but how much success has he had since a Super Bowl win in Tampa Bay many years ago. The honest answer would be not much. New Raiders head coach Rich Bisaccia got a huge first win on Sunday as the Raiders destroyed the Denver Broncos. As a team, the raiders looked much more relaxed with no Gruden on the sideline.

5) The Bengals are a legit contender

Surprisingly the Bengals are a contender because of a stout defense led by second-year linebacker Logan Wilson. The Bengals are solid in the secondary and upfront; they get after the passer. A win in Baltimore and the Bengals could become more than just Wild Card contenders.

6) The Dolphins and Eagles both need a starting quarterback

Tua and Hurts neither looks like a legit NFL franchise quarterback, so what do these two teams do? With both teams having draft capital, how about one of them trades for Texans quarterback DeShaun Watson? Sure, many unknowns and baggage are hanging out with Watson, but it could be worth a shot.

7) The Daniel Jones experiment needs to come to an end in New York

Jones turned the ball over four times in a bad loss to the Los Angeles Rams. That means if you’re not counting at home, that in 33 games, Jones has turned the ball over 45 times! I would say that is reason enough for a change.
