Week 6 of NFL action is upon us, and with all the excitement of last weekend, the NFL London Games continue. Our resident writer for Liz Bhandari from NFLGirlUK.com takes a look at this, as well as the 6PM Sky Sports game. Check it out.
2:30PM: NFL London: Miami Dolphins @ Jacksonville Jaguars
We get to see another NFL London game as well this Sunday between the Miami Dolphins and the Jacksonville Jaguars. Miami just got throttled by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but could be getting some reinforcements with the return of Tua Tagovailoa on offense.
Defensively they have somehow gotten ten times worse than last season but luckily face a Jaguars team that struggles to move the football consistently. Trevor Lawrence is starting to settle into his new team but there is a lot of questions regarding the coaching of Urban Meyer. Specifically, his commitment to the run game as well as some other off the field issues.
This is going to be a tight game between two teams that are basically battling for draft position right now. Maybe a win here against an equally bad opponent could end up thrusting them in the right direction again!
6PM: Los Angeles Chargers @ Baltimore Ravens
The Los Angeles Chargers are coming into this matchup after a potential Game of the Year with the Cleveland Browns. They won the game 47-42 with the game not being decided until the very last possession.
The Chargers continue to look like one of the best teams in the league and have all the star power that you would want to have in a roster. Justin Herbert looks like a grizzled veteran out there and can essentially make any throw that you want him too. He has two fantastic receiving threats in Mike Williams and Keenan Allen and a great offensive line to protect him. Even their run game has taken a step forward with Austin Ekeler back and fully healthy.
Defensively, Joey Bosa and Derwin James provide sparks that the rest of their group feeds off of. They have been surprisingly good in this area outside of their game against Cleveland. They will have to be even better this week against a Baltimore team that should be riding high after another seemingly improbable victory. This time coming back from a 22-3 deficit in the fourth quarter to knock off the Indianapolis Colts in overtime.
Lamar Jackson threw for 440 yards and four touchdowns while adding on 65 rushing yards. He was absolutely incredible and made passing the football look easy out there. There should be some concern regarding the lack of a strong run game, but that is what they are built on and should get back to it against a Chargers defense that couldn’t stop Nick Chubb or Kareem Hunt. Defensively, Baltimore had some issues. Until that fourth quarter they couldn’t stop the Colts at all.
This is going to be a wildly close game between two playoff calibre teams in the AFC, but I am going to have to roll with the Chargers in this one. They have been fantastic in each of their wins this season while the Ravens have barely squeaked out wins against a couple of teams they shouldn’t have beaten, including the Detroit Lions.
Without a doubt though, this isn’t a game that you are going to want to miss. The scoring potential is through the roof here!
