Winners and Losers of Week 6 of the NFL

B/R StudiosFeatured ColumnistOctober 13, 2013

Every once in a while you get those games you watch that remind you of why you love football. In week six, the Saints vs. Patriots game was the perfect example. Tom Brady went from "Favre-esque" to "Brady-esque" in a matter of moments. 

The Pats quarterback threw a crucial interception late in the fourth quarter reminding Packers fans of Brett Favre. But, New England's defense held the Saints, giving Brady one more chance to march 70 yards with 1:08 to go. And that's just what Brady did, culminating in a 17-yard touchdown pass to rookie Kenbrell Thompkins with :05 seconds left, giving the Patriots a 30-27 win. New England is undoubtedly one of the biggest winners in week six. 

All eyes were on Matt Schaub on Sunday to see if he'd continue his horrid play and be replaced by backup T.J. Yates. It wasn't exactly how we pictured it, but Schaub went down with an ankle injury as the Texans were getting crushed by the Rams at home in the third quarter. The Texans are now 2-4 and are big losers in Week 6. 

On the winning side, the Chiefs haven't exactly had a hard schedule this year. But 6-0 is still undefeated in any book. They had all they could handle from the Raiders, but their defense prevailed in the end. K.C. was 2-14 a year ago—what a difference a year makes. Just ask Alex Smith and Andy Reid. 

For the rest of the winners and losers for Week 6, check out the video above. Let us know who your winners and losers are.
