Week 6 NFL Report-Card Grades for Every Team

Are we really six weeks into the 2012 NFL season?

They say time flies when you’re having fun. But to date, it hasn’t been a very enjoyable season for a few perennial Super Bowl contenders, as well as a number of clubs that are coming off impressive seasons.

Consider that the Patriots (3-3), Packers (3-3) and idle Saints (1-4) have already lost as many or more games as they did all of last season, and the 2-3 Steelers are close.

So is it time to be concerned?

As we have spelled out in the past, the last two teams to win the Super Bowl, 10-6 Green Bay and the 9-7 New York Giants, were up and down most of the season before getting hot when it counted most.

With the exception of the Falcons (6-0), Ravens (5-1) and Texans (5-1), as well as the idle Bears (4-1), every team has already lost twice within the first six weeks of 2012.

It’s also worth noting that Baltimore and Houston are the lone teams in the AFC with a winning record at this time and the clubs square off this week at Reliant Stadium.

So we return with our grades. Please remember that they are based on a number of factors, not just wins and losses and statistics. They assess this week’s performance, not a team’s play this season.
