Are the Chiefs in legitimate trouble? Buffalo went into Arrowhead Stadium and throttled the defending AFC champions in a rematch of last year’s conference championship game. Patrick Mahomes continues to turn the ball over with regularity, and not even the Chiefs’ explosiveness can make up for it. Lamar Jackson’s stock as a passer continues to rise, after he led a spectacular Monday-night comeback against Indianapolis, almost entirely with his arm. The Cardinals remain the league’s sole unbeaten team, but they’ll face a stern test from the Browns, who lost perhaps the best game of Week 5 to Justin Herbert and the Chargers. Speaking of Los Angeles, they’ll take on the Ravens in one of Week 6’s marquee matchups. Dak Prescott and the Cowboys are cruising along at 4-1 and can make an even bigger statement with a road win over a Patriots team that barely survived the Texans. Beyond all that, the Raiders – and the rest of the league – are reeling after Jon Gruden’s resignation due to racist, homophobic, and misogynistic language he used in emails that were leaked to the public. Let’s get to the games.
BYE: Falcons, Jets, Saints, 49ers
