NFL Schedules Week 6 Match Details


Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Philadelphia Eagles


The NFC match-up between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Philadelphia Eagles has gathered some momentum over the last decade. The two teams have excited fans in Tampa and Philly with some great finishes to their matches. They have also had a few playoff matches against each other as well. The game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Philadelphia Eagles is an out-of-division match-up. These teams do not go up against each other very often. So, the tickets for this match of the current season are in high demand. Both the Philadelphia Eagles and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have marquee quarterbacks who lead squads filled with great talent. This alone is a huge draw for the fans.


But the viewers also know that this NFC conference showdown will influence the seeding for this year's playoffs. If you are a fan of either of these two teams, you do not want to miss your chance to view this great game. The teams have already given a good showing in the season till now.


Miami Dolphins vs. Jacksonville Jaguars


The Jacksonville Jaguars will be the host of an interstate opponent this year when they go on their annual tour to Britain for the international series of NFL. The NFL slotted the Miami Dolphins as the rivals of the Jacksonville Jaguars at this international match. The match will be held in week 6 of the NFL schedule. In a press release, Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan said, "The Jaguars are honored to return to London, our home away from home, and continue in our mission to grow the NFL and promote Jacksonville in the UK and beyond. With Urban Meyer as our head coach, we will be arriving with an entirely new look, and attitude that I am confident will meet the approval of our Union Jax supporters. I hope many of our loyal fans in Jacksonville can join us in London for a great experience and ratchet up the home-field advantage. Go Jags!"


Since Shad Khan bought the team nearly a decade ago, the Jacksonville Jaguars have played football at international stadiums. The team has played an annual home match in London for the past eight years. The previous year was the only exception. The Jacksonville Jaguars had agreed to be the host of two home matches in London last year. But the coronavirus pandemic led to all international matches being canceled. The Jacksonville Jaguars will be participating in their eighth home game in London. The Miami Dolphins will play in the United Kingdom for the fifth time. It will be their second game in the country as the away team. The Jacksonville Jaguars have won three and lost four games in London and have not won any match since a win over the Baltimore Ravens nearly five years ago.


The Jacksonville Jaguars have led the league in matches that have been played in London. These matches have long been the aim of their owner Shad Khan. The league has also said that there will be no matches in Mexico due to the pandemic. The NFL organized matches in Mexico for four seasons. The match between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Miami Dolphins will take place in Tottenham Hotspur FC's stadium. It will be telecast on the NFL Network on October 17 at 9.30 am ET.


Minnesota Vikings at Carolina Panthers


In the last match they faced against each other in the previous season, the Minnesota Vikings won against the Carolina Panthers in a bad all-around game for the latter. It was a day when the offense did not do anything great, and the special teams unit completely failed. The Minnesota Vikings had lost to the Carolina Panthers the last time the teams had met more than two years ago. This time around, they got the desired revenge. The Minnesota Vikings had a narrow escape in the game. They finished off Carolina with the margin of a single point. The oddsmakers had correctly predicted both the close margin and the victor of the match.


In the match, the Minnesota Vikings had to lean on the plays of their quarterback Kirk Cousins. He passed more than two touchdowns and 300 yards on more than 40 attempts. The WR Justin Jefferson got two receiving touchdowns. Kirk ended up with a high passer rating. On the other side, one of the Vikings' drawbacks was RB Dalvin Cook’s poor play. He fumbled the ball during a crucial play. The Carolina Panthers got a good performance from WR Robby Anderson despite the defeat. He caught a single touchdown and four passes and covered more than 90 yards. Cam Newton did not have a great match. He had one interception and touchdown during the match.


The win has improved Minnesota's record and reduced the overall record of Carolina. This match may have been much closer as many of the points scored by Minnesota were from a couple of blocked punts that were turned into touchdowns. The match was put away before the first half ended. The Carolina Panthers never had a major chance. This season's match is also looking to be very exciting. Carolina Panthers will ensure that they do not start a new losing streak against the Minnesota Vikings. At the same time, the latter will look to continue their newfound domination against the Carolina Panthers.


Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears


The rivalry between the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers began a century ago. It is the most played rivalry of the entire NFL, with more than 200 regular-season and postseason matches. The only exception was when the home and away games were canceled 40 years ago because of the NFLPA strike. This made the Packers-Lions rivalry the longest continuous rivalry in the league. The Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers have played in the same division or conference since the league went to conference format nearly 90 years ago. They played each other in the Western Conference till 50 years ago and have since played in the NFC North.
