. 4-1. . Los Angeles Rams. 4. team. 51

So far, the decision to trade for Matthew Stafford is paying off for the Rams. Stafford has thrown for 1,587 yards, 12 touchdowns, and three interceptions with the Rams winning four of their opening five. The concern is a defense allowing 388.2 points per game.

The Packers have bounced back from an awful Week 1 performance, winning four straight. Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams remain unstoppable while the offensive line has held up well despite all the injuries. Most notable is the improvement of the defense, which currently ranks sixth in the NFL entering Week 6.

team. 48. . 5-1. . Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 2

Tom Brady continues to age like a fine wine, throwing for 2,064 yards and 17 touchdowns with three interceptions in the opening six weeks. The Buccaneers have already played in Week 6, defeating the Eagles on Thursday night. The defending Super Bowl champions remain all-in for 2021 and they will continue to win a lot of football games.

Arizona Cardinals. 1. team. 32. . 5-0.

Talking of all-in, the Arizona Cardinals went that way in the offseason, making a number of bold moves like signing J.J. Watt. And it’s paying off. Arizona’s offense ranks sixth in yards per game and fourth in points per game, while the defense is allowing just 19 points per contest and has forced 10 turnovers. Super Bowl contenders? They certainly think so, trading for Zach Ertz on Friday.
