Week 6 has passed and boy was it a weird one. What matchups are primed for the biggest points this weekend in the NFL? Let’s dive into it.
What do we have this week for you? Hold your horses. We’ve got a kicker and a defense for starters. I like matchups at all levels so we’re going to look at them. We also have a quarterback coming off their best week, a running back finally being the focus point again and receivers historically dominant to show you.
I won’t drone on, let’s get to the first of the week.
No. 10 Andrew Luck vs Oakland
Luck is coming off one of his best outings of the season in the win over Buffalo. Yardage wise it was his worst outing of the year with just 156 yards but efficiency is key. Luck finished with four touchdowns going 17-for-23 and posting his highest QBR of the season at 131.5.
You’re saying, Connor, it’s Buffalo. I know it’s Buffalo. It’s still a positive sign for the Colts after four straight losses. Sitting at 2-5 is nowhere you want to be but a 37-5 win before facing a Raiders team in the midst of a fire sale can’t be understated.
Luck should continue that trend moving into the new week against an Oakland team that like I said…has no clue what they’re doing. Luck’s biggest struggles this season have come before crossing midfield, with five of his eight interceptions. In the red zone though? 17 touchdowns and just one interception. That’s not bad.
