NFL 2011 Week 6 sees the only unbeaten teams Green Bay and Detroit take on NFC West teams as they look to cement their positions as 1 & 2 in the NFC.
Green Bay look to have the easier task taking on the Rams at Lambeau and it will be a big surprise if they don’t advance to 6-0 given they have no major injury worries.
Detroit who have shown a lot of tenacity in their recent wins face a revitalised San Fransisco at Ford Field and despite the 49ers destroying Tampa last week its hard to see them upsetting the Lions in their own back yard.
The other big games of the weekend are the all NFC East clash between the Eagles & Redskins, which has almost become a must win for Philly who currently languish at 1-4 after four straight losses. The Skins on the other hand are flying high thanks to their defense which seems to be able to stop the run successfully at the moment. This one could be close.
In the NFC South Tampa will be keen to bounce back from last weeks mauling, however they face a potentially sterner test against divisional rivals New Orleans who have string a nice run of wins together. It will be interesting to see how Tampa cope with Drew Brees who is already racking up the yards this season.
