For the second straight week, NFL fans will have to set their alarms for early Sunday morning. The Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars will continue the NFL’s International Series in London at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after the New York Jets and Atlanta Falcons played there in Week 5.

The best matchup of the weekend might end up being buried during the early slate Sunday, when Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers visit Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens.

Here’s a breakdown of the top games in Week 6.

Thursday Night Football: Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Philadelphia Eagles

It was a close one, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers got by the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday Night Football 28-22 to improve to 5-1. With the loss, the Eagles dropped to 2-4 on the season. 

Tom Brady and the Bucs built a 28-7 lead by the third quarter, but the Eagles crawled back, thanks to two rushing touchdowns from Jalen Hurts to pull within a score. However, it was too little, too late as the Bucs ran out the clock for the victory. 

Brady finished 34 of 42 for 297 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Hurts threw for 115 yards, a score and a pick while adding 44 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. Antonio Brown led all receivers with nine catches for 93 yards and a score while Leonard Fournette had 81 rushing yards and two touchdowns

NFL Week 6 Sunday Afternoon Matchups

With four teams on a bye this week, there are 10 Sunday afternoon matchups in Week 6 -- seven in the 1 p.m. ET slate and three in the 4 p.m. ET slate.

The Baltimore Ravens reigned victorious over the Los Angeles Chargers in a battle between the AFC's top teams. Lamar Jackson didn't post the incredible stat line he did last week, but Baltimore's defense and special teams came through in a dominant 34-6 win at M&T Bank Stadium.

The Los Angeles Rams took care of the injury-plagued New York Giants handily thanks to Matthew Stafford's four-touchdown day. Daniel Jones looked lost without his top targets, Kenny Golladay and Saquon Barkley.

Last week's breakout star, Kadarius Toney, left the game in the first quarter with a right ankle injury.

Patrick Mahomes got off to a rough start against the Washington Football Team, but the Chiefs found a way to bounce back in the second half, scoring 21 unanswered points to get to .500 on the season.

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers defeated the Chicago Bears for the fifth straight time. Rodgers threw for two touchdown passes, rushed for another and even added a little swag to his celebration after running into the end zone. 

The final game to end in the early window needed overtime to decide a winner. Kirk Cousins, Dalvin Cook, and the Minnesota Vikings got off to a hot start against the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium. Cousins threw two touchdown passes and Cook ran in another touchdown to put the Vikings up 25-17 heading into the fourth quarter.

The Panthers never gave up though, scoring 11 unanswered points to tie the game at 28 with 42 seconds left. Greg Joseph had a chance to win the game but missed a 47-yarder as time expired. Luckily Minnesota received the ball first in the extra period and Cousins found K.J. Osborn for a 27-yard touchdown to clinch the Vikings' second win of the season in thrilling fashion.

Dak Prescott threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to CeeDee Lamb in overtime to give the Dallas Cowboys a thrilling 35-29 win over the New England Patriots. It was a back-and-forth affair in the fourth quarter, with Greg Zuerlein making a 49-yard field goal with 20 seconds remaining as the Cowboys evened the score at 29-29. Trevon Diggs briefly gave Dallas the lead earlier in the fourth with a pick-six, his seventh interception in six games, for a 26-21 lead with 2:27 to go. Mac Jones, just 16 seconds later connected with Kendrick Bourne for a 75-yard touchdown and a 29-26 Patriots lead. Prescott completed 36 of 51 passes for 445 yards with three touchdowns and one interception as the Cowboys won a fifth straight to improve to 5-1. Lamb finished with 149 yards and two touchdowns on nine receptions. Mac Jones went 15-for-21 with 229 yards, two touchdowns and one interception for the 2-4 Patriots.

In their first game since parting ways with Jon Gruden, the Las Vegas Raiders defeated the Denver Broncos 34-24. Derek Carr completed 18 of 27 passes for 341 yards and two touchdowns to help give interim coach Rich Bisaccia his first victory. Josh Jacobs ran for 53 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries as the Raiders improved to 4-2. Teddy Bridgewater went 35-for-49 with 334 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions for the 3-3 Broncos.

Kyler Murray threw for four touchdowns as the Arizona Cardinals remained the lone undefeated team following a 37-14 victory over the Cleveland Browns. DeAndre Hopkins caught a pair of touchdowns and A.J. Green and Christian Kirk each had one for the 6-0 Cardinals. Donovan Peoples-Jones had 101 receiving yards and two touchdowns for the 3-3 Browns.

Sunday Night Football: Seattle Seahawks vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

T.J. Watt came up with a crucial defensive play to propel the Pittsburgh Steelers to a 23-20 overtime win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday Night Football.

Watt sacked Geno Smith to force a fumble and give the Steelers the ball at the Seattle 16-yard line with just over four minutes remaining in overtime. That set up a game-winning 37-yard field goal by Chris Boswell as the Steelers improved to 3-3. Boswell hit a 52-yard field goal with 1:29 left in regulation to give the Steelers a 20-17 lead. Smith, starting in place of the injured Russell Wilson, helped get the Seahawks into range and Jason Myers made a 43-yard field goal as time expired to send the game to overtime.

Najee Harris led the Steelers with 81 rushing yards on 24 carries and 46 receiving yards and a touchdown on six catches. Alex Collins had 20 carries for 101 yards and a TD for the 2-4 Seahawks.

Monday Night Football: Buffalo Bills vs. Tennessee Titans

The week concludes with a battle of two AFC playoff teams from a year ago. The Buffalo Bills are riding high after finally defeating Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs last week. They’ve won four straight and sit at 4-1, with Josh Allen firmly in the MVP discussion. The Tennessee Titans are 3-2 after beating the Jaguars last week, but ugly losses to the Jets and Cardinals have many questioning them. Derrick Henry, as usual, is dominating for the Titans -- he’s on pace to break the record for most carries in a season and easily rush for 2,000 yards.
