The NFL edition of The Tale of Two Cities tells the story of a new football shelter and a decade of vacant land.
On one side is Los Angeles, which did not leave the NFL team from 1995-2015, but now has two of the top six teams in the league. The Super Bowl LVI will take place at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles in February 2022, and there’s reason to think Rams or Charger – or both. – Plays for the championship.
On the other beach is New York, where the teams with the fewest wins (19) since the start of the 2017 season are located. The Jets have not reached the playoffs since 2010. The Giants have played one playoff game since winning the Super Bowl XLVI in February 2012. Both teams went on to win 1-4 and continue the tradition of keeping fans at home before Halloween.
Here is The Post’s NFL 6-Week Rankings:
1. Arizona Cardinals, 5-0 (Last week: 1)
Who would have chosen the Cardinals as the last team without defeat? They are 5-0 for the first time since 1974. The No. 5 win was different. The NFL’s highest-scoring offense was stifled by an average of 35 points-49ers per game per week, but the defense came to a standstill for the fourth time.
2. Los Angeles Rams, 4-1 (2)
Not all finger injuries are the same. The Sailors could have missed two months for Russell Wilson’s finger injury, with Rams throwing 365 yards against Seattle despite Matthew Stafford’s finger pain. DeSean showed Jackson something was left in the tank – a scary offer when he joined Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp.
3. Tampa Bay Bookmakers, 4-1 (3)
Tom Brady, 44, made more than 400 yards in his first career with five kicks, and Antonio Brown, 33, scored twice and became the fastest player to receive 900 times. . What was missing was 32-year-old Rob Gronkowski.
4. Buffalo Bills, 4-1 (5)
It was easy to see coming, but hard to believe at the same time: they wanted to prove they could beat Kansas City’s ruthless bosses, the wavy bills of Josh Allen’s four total shots and the inspired hurdle run went behind. Cover 2’s standard defense cut through the big blows that killed the bills in the AFC Championship game.
5. Green Bay Packers, 4-1 (4)
Perhaps a 25-22 win would give the Bengals more information about their improvement than the Packers. Mason Crosby conceded three goals in the fourth quarter and in extra time before drilling a 49-yard touchdown run. Davante Adams crossed the 200 meters for the first time in his career.
6. Los Angeles Chargers, 4-1 (7)
The Chargers always find ways to lose games like the 47-42 shot against the Browns, in which eight differences change and there is one draw. Only they didn’t this time thanks to Justin Herbert (398 yards, four touchdowns) and Austin Ekeler (three shots in the fourth quarter). We announce the new favorites of the AFC West.
7. Baltimore Ravens, 4-1 (9)
The Ravens-Colts seemed to see a chance to reach the playoffs at the start of the season, but the Ravens ’19-point return on Monday reflected two teams heading in opposite directions. The Ravens ’100-meter hurdles have ended in 43 games in a row — and then extended it at a low price a week ago. The Crows are no longer on the road until November 11th.
8. Dallas Cowboys, 4-1 (11)
How different is Dak Prescott. A year ago, NFC East was a historically bad split. It looks even poorer except for the cowboys who have a healthy Prescott to get to the playoffs. A defense that lives and dies while fleeing is a dangerous way to survive, but better than last year’s alternative.
9. Cleveland Browns, 3-2 (6)
The mark of a good team is extra football. The Browns can’t find it. After a three-game winning streak, Baker Mayfield threw 305 goals in a 531-yard attacking game … but didn’t show defense. Significant disruptions occurred at all levels.
10. Kansas City Chiefs, 2-3 (10)
The two-time AFC champion does not deserve the top 10. No team does. Thus, bosses benefit from suspicion. The defense is very sad and Patrick Mahomes has hit as many shots as he has in the last two seasons this year. Only one of these problems can be fixed, so he will return to win again.
11. Saints of New Orleans (19)
12. Chicago Bears, 3-2 (20)
13. Cincinnati Bengals, 3-2 (15)
14. Tennessee Titans, 3-2 (17)
15. San Francisco 49ers, 2-3 (13)
16. Seattle Seaxavks, 2-3 (12)
17. Las Vegas Raiders, 3-2 (8)
18. Carolina Panterz, 3-2 (14)
19. Pittsburgh Steelers, 2-3 (25)
20. Minnesota Vikings, 2-3 (21)
21. Philadelphia Eagles, 2-3 (23)
22. Acesparks Broncos (16)
23. New England Patriots, 2-3 (22)
24. Washington Football Team, 2-3 (18)
25. Indianapolis Kolts, 1-4 (24)
26. Atlanta Falcons, 2-3 (27)
27. Miami Dolphins, 1-4, (26)
28. New York Giants, 1-4 (28)
The Giants spent the second half of the defeat on the Cowboys without a quarterback, running back, with three of the four receivers and three of the five offensive lines opening the season. Before the rams, the panthers, the chiefs, and the invaders, the table becomes difficult.
29. Houston Texans, 1-4 (30)
30. New York Jets, 1-4 (29)
The Jets averaged 2.6 points in the first half. This is no less than four points from other teams. This is vaguely low. Unlike what happened a week ago against the Titans, the second half’s awakening (17 points) was not enough against the Falcons in London. Really good actions of the defense until you have to stop.
31. Detroit Lions, 0-5 (31)
32. Jacksonville Jaguars, 0-5 (32)
