Week 6 is setting up to deliver an excellent weekend of football. From the early morning matinee between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins in London, England, to the Sunday night contest between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Seattle Seahawks, the NFL is poised to deliver non-stop action throughout the entire weekend. The Monday night contest between the Buffalo Bills and Tennessee Titans appears to be a worthy closer for what should be a fun-filled weekend.
The high point of Week 6 will undoubtedly occur when Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers travel to M&T Bank Stadium to do battle with Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens. This matchup between two 4-1 teams is highly intriguing and could even serve as a preview to this year’s AFC Championship Game.
We could be in store for several surprises and big individual performances. With that in mind, we’ve assembled up three bold predictions for Week 6.
RONDALE MOORE SECURES 100 RECEIVING YARDS AND A TD
The electric rookie out of Purdue has been in fine form this season. Moore has taken a progressive step forward on a weekly basis. The chemistry between MVP-candidate starting quarterback Kyler Murray and Moore is developing rather nicely. Moore caught five-of-six targets for 59 receiving yards on Sunday, while adding 38 rushing yards via three carries.
On Sunday, Moore will square off with a Browns defense that allowed 47 points and nearly 500 yards of total offense against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 5. The Cardinals and their high-flying offense represents a similar challenge, and Moore could be in for a big day.
JAGUARS GET THEIR FIRST WIN IN LONDON
The Jacksonville Jaguars are searching to bring a 20-game winless streak to a halt and we love their chances of achieving so on Sunday. The Jaguars will make their NFL-record eighth appearance in London against a Miami Dolphins team that is on an unfortunate four-game losing streak.
Urban Meyer will secure his first NFL victory at some point and we foresee his Jaguars playing with a sense of urgency in front of a joyous London crowd. Dolphins starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa appears poised to make his return from injury, but it could take some time for him to shake the rust off.
The Jaguars should be able to compete for a victory on Sunday.
KHALIL HERBERT STEALS THE SHOW IN PACKERS-BEARS
One of the NFL’s oldest rivalries will take center stage for the first time in 2021 when the Chicago Bears take on Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers at Soldier Field. While many of the headlines will focus on rookie quarterback Justin Fields as he prepares to make his first career start against the Packers, it could be another rookie playmaker that ends up capturing national attention.
Herbert announced his NFL arrival by rushing for an impressive 75 yards on 18 carries in Chicago's win over Las Vegas a week ago. With fellow running backs David Montgomery and Damien Williams slated to miss this contest, we expect Herbert to touch the ball early and often against the Packers. It could lead to a big day for the former Virginia Tech standout.
