Offenses have the upper hand in the National Football League, as even some of the league's middling teams can play in a shootout.
Atlanta and Houston, the league's undefeated, do it in different ways. The Falcons go for an aerial assault in which the opponent has to be able to score with them. The Texans, though, pound it down the throat of the defenses, but then go play-action when they see fit.
There are different ways to control a team's defense. Only some do it week in and week out.
As for NFL's Week 6, here's a few offenses that will have the look of a well oiled machine.
Dallas Cowboys (at Baltimore)
How about them Cowboys off the bye?
Jerry Jones' team historically has been a terror coming out of a bye week. That won't stop against an enigmatic Ravens team.
Dallas' offense will be focused after a interception-filled outing last Sunday night at home.
This Baltimore defense is not the lauded Ravens defense from a decade ago; they'll have trouble keeping Jason Witten and Miles Austin from moving the chains.
Atlanta Falcons (vs. Oakland)
The Raiders bring their 28th-ranked pass defense into the Georgia Dome, which smells like trouble for them.
The Falcons are the perfect storm to take advantage. Armed with Julio Jones, Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez downfield, Matt Ryan should have a field day. And when their score gets high, Michael Turner will take them home.
For those NFL viewers waiting for Atlanta's first loss, wait until next week.
Denver Broncos (at San Diego)
They've had problems with slow starts, but the Broncos were going to need time to grow with Peyton Manning and his offense still learning to gel.
Their ridiculously tough schedule takes an easier turn with a trip to San Diego. While the Chargers offense can put up points with the best of them, Peyton's eyes have been lighting up after he watched the San Diego defense get sliced up by Drew Brees.
Expect a different Denver team that can get a lead Sunday night.
