It's always hard to win on the road in the NFL. Rowdy crowds, air travel and constantly changing practice rhythms for short weeks, long weeks, day games and night games make winning in the league a chore.
But this week, it was even more back-breaking work than usual. Road teams went 4-8 in NFL Week 6; two of those wins were in overtime, and one was for the night owls watching Sunday Night Football.
The road winners needed some spectacular performances to overcome home-field advantage, and the home teams got some great plays made, too.
As we do every week, it's time to hand out game balls to the players and people who made the home teams so tough to topple—and the few road winners so hard to handle.
