Can the Lions Keep Their Run Going? [NFL Week 6 Live Thread]

10/16/11 in NFL   |   Eric_   |   7716 respect

Before the season began, the Lions were seemingly everyone's sleeper team, while the 49ers will consider a possibility to get out of the morass that is the NFC West. What no one could see coming was that these two teams would be a combined 9-1 and their Week 6 matchup would be the game of the week. Here is today's full slate of Week 6 games.

1:00 PM Games:

Carolina at Atlanta:
 We keep waiting for the Falcons to be good, but something continues to be missing here. This week they get the Cam Newton Show. Julio Jones is inactive today, which could add to Atlanta's woes.

Indianapolis at Cincinnati: They don't win pretty, but the Bengals are winning, and can go to 4-2 with a victory over the reeling Colts. First to 17 wins here.

San Francisco at Detroit: At this point, most everyone thinks the Lions are for real, so this is more of a statement game for San Francisco, who are quietly 4-1. Alex Smith has actually pretty damn good, which may mean Jim Harbaugh is a sorcerer.

St. Louis at Green Bay: On paper, this is a blowout, but games of course aren't played on paper. Line play will be the key for the Rams today. The D-line will try to take advantage of a banged up Packers' front five (although Bryan Bulaga is active today), while the offensive line will try to keep Sam Bradford from running for his life and turning into David Carr.

Buffalo at N.Y. Giants: Once again, no one has a clue how the Giants will play from week to week. After seeing the Giants get burned by Charlie Whitehurst last week though, Ryan Fitzpatrick is probably licking his chops.

Jacksonville at Pittsburgh: At some point we might learn if the Steelers are any good, but it won't be this week as they face the Jags, who might be the suckiest team that ever sucked.

Philadelphia at Washington: Must Win Game for the Dream Team, yet again. Trent Cole is again inactive for the Eagles. The Redskins have a three headed monster at running back: Ryan Torain, Roy Helu, and Tim Hightower (the latter active but beat up). They should use those three frequently against Philly's terrible interior defense to prevent overexposure to Rex Grossman.

4:00 PM Games:

Cleveland at Oakland: 
The Raiders come back to honor Al Davis and hopefully go to 4-2 against the thoroughly mediocre Browns.

Houston at Baltimore: This game looked a lot of more interesting before Mario Williams and Andre Johnson got hurt. Texans need to find a way to pull it out though, or they'll be staring at 3-3 and looking like a pretender yet again.

Dallas at New England: What will happen, more points or asinine statements about Tony Romo?

New Orleans at Tampa Bay: One week after getting destroyed in San Francisco, the Bucs come back home and get to face Drew Brees and company. Ouch.

Sunday Night Game:

Minnesota at Chicago:
 Ick. I'm rooting for a tie.

Q it up here during all the Week 6 action.

It didn't make any sense. But it's cool, man. I understand. You have nothing to say to justify your sexual predator of a QB, so you gotta try to twist the conversation in whatever direction you think it will take to make it a conversation. Deep down, you know that Big Ben isn't even in Brady's stratosphere, and it's blasphemous for them to even be in the same conversation.

WOW! talk about twisting a conversation. You are the one who said it to me, when you were doing the Weekly Power Rankings. It was pointless on my part to bring it up, we all know about you paying off on bets.

Because today, Brady wasn't impressive. He held on to the ball to long, seemed to have no internal clock whatsoever, and basically disappeared for 58 minutes, before leading one decent drive at the end of the game. His defense bailed him out with some incredible plays to keep them in the game and give him a chance to win despite his poor play.

There's really only 1 guy who fits that description almost all the time, even better than Brady did yesterday.

So while season-wise, and career-wise, they have no place being spoken or written in the same sentence, Brady played very Ben-like on Sunday.

If you guys had a bet he will never pay it, so don't get your hopes up.

 Trust me, I am. There's nothing impressive about forcing a bunch of turnovers when you're playing a Tony Romo-led offense.

Also, Brady seems to have borrowed Big Ben's internal clock too, for at least the first quarter. He was hanging out in the pocket like it was a Milledgeville bar bathroom.

I'm pretty sure Ben's over that crap.  He can put his hands on a woman all he wants now, as long as it's his wife.

Wondered the same thing, the last 3 minutes it was nonexistent.

I'm sure some stupid s**t will blame Romo and overlook the fact the defense didn't show up to close the game.

 Looks like things got a little testy between Jim Harbaugh and Jim Schwartz after the 49ers/Lions game.  The two met in the middle of the field to shake hands and Harbaugh seemed to be a little bit too excited that his team won.  Schwartz took exception to Harbaugh's hooting and hollaring and the two had to be restrained by their respective teams.  The pushing and shoving continues as the Lions tried to leave the field before cooler heads prevailed

Carolina at Atlanta: We keep waiting for the Falcons to be good(but some of us are running out of time on planet earth), but something continues to be missing here (like an offense, and defense, and special teams, and ...ah hell, you get it). This week they get the Cam Newton Show. Julio Jones is inactive today (kinda like every other day since he was drafted), which could add to Atlanta's woes (other than basically being a pimple on the n*ts*ck of the NFL).

 Don't be blinded by your hate. When the schedule came out, they were playing...in order: 11-5 team, panthers, 11-5 team (division leader too), broncos, 13-3 team (division leader, #2 in the league too), the rams were promising last year, and almost every game besides the chiefs after those HAD the potential to be good competitive games. The Packers are playing great football right now. It's as simple as that.

Akers get through a 55 yarder at the end of the half for the 49ers. There's been a lot of long field goals this year. Did kickers find a new version of HGH or something?

68 yard run + a face mask for Mendenhall, longest run of his career.  Steelers can't punch it in this time though, so they take the chip shot FG and extend it to 17-0.  I can't complain though, 3 possessions and points every time they've had the ball.  Daniel Sepulveda hasn't even had to stand up yet.
