Well I have been off the ball this Anerican football season, mainly sulking as the 9ers have been struggling with all the wholesale changes they made in the close season, but they finally managed to hold on for a win last night, even if they had to hold out to the last throw of the game.
Game of week 6 for me was the Panthers beating the Seahawks for their very first win over them. They came from behind to score 2 X 80 yard gain touchdowns and in very quick fashion. The Seahawks again fell apart defensively in the final quarter. It helps that I do not like the Seahawks!

Giants v Eagles in the early hours of Tuesday, should be another close match up!
so same old Brady bunch topping things.
great to see the Bengals off to a stormer, but expect the steelers to be right on the coat tails in a few weeks, when the Bengals lose a couple.
another very poor division which the Colts should top.
Same old, same old as the Broncos will walk this division.
Giants match off at the Eagles tonight/Tuesday
this division and the NFC south are the most interesting for me this season. I can see this being a 3 horse race, which will hot up nicely with an Eagles win tonight.
a walk in the park for the Packers, with Rogers amazing fast right arm! They will be contenders again this season for the Super Bowl.
Panthers 5-0 (surprise package for me)
Love seeing the Panthers up there and long may it continue, but I still expect a challenge from the Saints and pressure from the Falcons. So very early days.
the only saving grace, for the 49ers is this is a very weak area/division this season. But even if they were to make it out, that would be it straight away and the sand goes for any of these teams as it stands.
Shooking division where I expect the Seahalks to sort out their 4th quarter mental block and top this division (unfortunately they are still a bloody excellent unit) Cardinals I think have enough for 2nd. If rookie Todd Gurley keeps performing he may see the Rams take 2nd, but think 3rd for them.
Now in true match of the day style watch me change my predications every week! Ha ha
Giants 7 - 27 Eagles, makes the NFC east very interesting
