NFL 2021: Week 6 Defensive Streamers

Remember, the Byes start this week.  The teams on a bye are New Orleans Saints, New York Jets, Atlanta Falcons, and San Francisco Niners.

We have come to the point where defensive streamers are all about the match-up (I mean, it always has been, but now it really….really is).

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS, ROSTERED 44%, v HOUSTON TEXANS

I know the Indianapolis Colts allowed Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens to reel off 28 unanswered points in the second half.

And Davis Mills against the New England Patriots completed 21-of-29, 312 yards, and three touchdowns in a losing effort.

But Mills isn’t Jackson, and the Colts’ defense played extremely well for a half, holding Jackson and the Ravens offense to three points before it all blew up.

Take away Week 5, and the Texans have allowed 10 sacks and six takeaways. 

MIAMI DOLPHINS, ROSTERED 15% @ JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (LONDON GAME)

The Jaguars are kind of a mess.  They are coming off a 37-19 spanking at the hands of the Tennessee Titans.  Can quarterback Trevor Lawrence complete a quarterback sneak or not?

And then, of course, the Jaguars are ranked 28th in the league in scoring, averaging 18.6 points per game.

The Dolphins’ defense isn’t setting the league on fire, having just surrendered 45 points, 411 passing yards, and five touchdowns to Tom Brady. 

But hey, Lawrence isn’t Brady, and Urban Meyer isn’t Bruce Arians. 

DALLAS COWBOYS, ROSTERED 53%, @NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

The Cowboys are precariously close to being over the rostered limit, but there are still 47% of y’all who need to get on board.

Last week, the Houston Texans…let that sink in…the Houston Texans, held Mac Jones to 23-of-30, 231 passing yards, one touchdown, one interception, and one sack.

The Patriots are averaging 19.2 points per game (26th).

The Dallas defense is giving only 79.4 average rushing yards per game (5th) but 311 passing yards per game (31st).

So the question is, do you trust Jones and the Patriots to pass efficiently against the Cowboys?
