29. New York Jets
Last week: 30th
Week 5 result: Lost to the Eagles, 31-6
Week 6 opponent: vs. Dallas Cowboys
One thing to know: The Jets' high hopes for 2019 were quickly dashed with the absence of starting quarterback Sam Darnold through the first quarter of the season. He's set to return this week, but with the Jets already off to an 0-4 start, it would take a miraculous turnaround for him to make a real difference.

Last week: 28th
Week 5 result: Beat the Chargers, 20-13
Week 6 opponent: vs. Tennessee Titans
One thing to know: Broncos cornerback De'Vante Bausby left Week 5 after a collision with a teammate and told ESPN's Jeff Legwold that he was momentarily paralyzed: "I was never unconscious, I just couldn't move, but I was still talking and everything ... after about 30 minutes I was able to wiggle my toes, and after a couple hours I was able to regain full mobility, so I was straight, I was fine." He said he's trying to return as soon as possible.

Week 5 result: Lost to the Ravens, 26-23
Week 6 opponent: at Los Angeles Chargers

Week 5 result: Beat the Bengals, 26-23
Week 6 opponent: vs. Atlanta Falcons

25. Atlanta Falcons
Last week: 25th
Week 5 result: Lost to the Texans, 53-32
Week 6 opponent: at Arizona Cardinals
One thing to know: After yet another disappointing start to the season, Falcons head coach Dan Quinn appears to be on the hot seat in Atlanta. A big performance against the Cardinals could prove enough to secure his job for at least a few more weeks.

23. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Last week: 17th
Week 5 result: Lost to the Saints, 31-24
Week 6 opponent: vs. Carolina Panthers (in London)
One thing to know: Chris Godwin has been the star of the show for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers through five weeks, emerging as the top wide receiver in fantasy football so far. The Buccaneers may only be 2-3, but there's a good chance many Godwin fantasy owners are off to a 5-0 start to the year.

22. Tennessee Titans
Last week: 21st
Week 5 result: Lost to the Bills, 14-7
Week 6 opponent: at Denver Broncos

21. Los Angeles Chargers
Last week: 15th
Week 5 result: Lost to the Broncos, 20-13
Week 6 opponent: vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
One thing to know: Melvin Gordon was far from impressive in his first game back from his holdout, taking 12 carries for just 32 yards against the Broncos. He'll have to improve on that in the near future if he hopes to keep getting carries after the hot start Austin Ekeler got off to this year.

20. Detroit Lions
Last week: 14th
Week 5 result: Bye
Week 6 opponent: at Green Bay Packers
One thing to know: The Lions are almost like the forgotten team of the NFC North this season. But with their next two games against divisional foes in the Packers and Vikings, they have the chance to take control of the division at the halfway point of the season.

19. Oakland Raiders
Last week: 24th
Week 5 result: Beat the Bears, 24-21
Week 6 opponent: Bye
One thing to know: After the Raiders upset victory over the Chicago Bears in London, head coach Jon Gruden said: "I'm 56-years-old, that's the most fun I've ever had tonight." The Antonio Brown drama feels like it's far in the rearview for Oakland, and the Raiders 302 start to the season might be the most surprising result in the league through five weeks.

18. Jacksonville Jaguars
Last week: 20th
Week 5 result: Lost to the Panthers, 34-27
Week 6 opponent: vs. New Orleans Saints

17. Cleveland Browns
Last week: 12th
Week 5 result: Lost to the 49ers, 31-3
Week 6 opponent: vs. Seattle Seahawks
One thing to know: One week removed from what looked like a rejuvenated performance against the Baltimore Ravens, the Browns offense fell completely flat against the 49ers on Monday night. Cleveland will have to right the ship again at some point, but with a cupcake schedule through the second half of the season, they should have time to turn things around.

16. Chicago Bears
Last week: 10th
Week 5 result: Lost to the Raiders, 24-21
Week 6 opponent: Bye

Last week: 16th
Week 5 result: Beat the Giants, 28-10
Week 6 opponent: vs. Philadelphia Eagles
One thing to know: Kirk Cousins and the Vikings bounced back as expected, as Cousins and Adam Thielen connected on 7 catches for 130 yards and 2 touchdowns. Now, can Cousins provide this type of performance against good teams?

14. Baltimore Ravens
Last week: 13th
Week 5 result: Beat the Steelers, 26-23
Week 6 opponent: vs. Cincinnati Bengals
One thing to know: Justin Tucker once again proved why he might be the best kicker the NFL has ever seen, hitting a 48-yard field goal with 10 seconds left to tie the game, and then following that up with a 46-yard game-winner in overtime for the Ravens. A note to future opponents of the Ravens — don't let the game come down to one final kick.

13. Houston Texans
Last week: 22nd
Week 5 result: Beat the Falcons, 53-32
Week 6 opponent: at Kansas City Chiefs
One thing to know: The Deshaun Watson-Will Fuller connection was on full display on Sunday, as the two connected for 14 catches, 217 yards, and 3 touchdowns. The Texans offense is scary if they can find a way to be consistent.

Last week: 19th
Week 5 result: Beat the Chiefs, 19-13
Week 6 opponent: Bye
One thing to know: The Colts win over the Chiefs was one of the biggest upsets of the NFL season, and it came with an old-school focus on running the ball. "Let's go run it down their throats," quarterback Jacoby Brissett told head coach Frank Reich ahead of the Colts final game-sealing drive.

11. Dallas Cowboys
Last week: 5th
Week 5 result: Lost to the Packers, 34-24
Week 6 opponent: at New York Jets
One thing to know: After Week 3, we wrote that it would be interesting to see how the 3-0 Cowboys faired against two good teams in the Saints and Packers. Two weeks later, Dallas has lost two straight. Dak Prescott has thrown 2 touchdowns to 4 interceptions the last two games.

10. Carolina Panthers
Last week: 18th
Week 5 result: Beat the Jaguars, 34-27
Week 6 opponent: vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (in London)
One thing to know: Kyle Allen's magical run continues in Carolina. Since taking over for Cam Newton, Allen has helped lead the Panthers to three straight wins. Running back Christian McCaffrey averaged more than 200 total yards per outing in those three games, which makes things easier.

9. Philadelphia Eagles
Last week: 9th
Week 5 result: Beat the Jets, 31-6
Week 6 opponent: at Minnesota Vikings
One thing to know: The Eagles defense dominated the Jets, racking up 10 sacks, 14.5 tackles for loss, two interceptions, plus a defensive touchdown. It's a positive sign for a defense that had given up 20-plus points in each of the previous four games.

8. Los Angeles Rams
Last week: 6th
Week 5 result: Lost to the Seahawks, 30-29
Week 6 opponent: vs. San Francisco 49ers
One thing to know: The Los Angeles Rams have scored 69 points the past two weeks, and lost both of their games. Their match this week against the so-far undefeated 49ers could prove a turning point for better or worse for the reigning NFC Champions.

7. Buffalo Bills
Last week: 8th
Week 5 result: Beat the Titans, 14-7
Week 6 opponent: Bye

6. Seattle Seahawks
Last week: 11th
Week 5 result: Beat the Rams, 30-29
Week 6 opponent: at Cleveland Browns

5. San Francisco 49ers
Last week: 7th
Week 5 result: Beat the Browns, 31-3
Week 6 opponent: at Los Angeles Rams
One thing to know: The San Francisco 49ers silenced any doubters they had on Monday night with a dominant win over the Cleveland Browns in primetime. Richard Sherman said the win was motivated by Baker Mayfield's decision to stiff him on a pregame handshake, a claim that wound up devolving into the silliest controversy of the season.

4. Green Bay Packers
Last week: 4th
Week 5 result: Beat the Cowboys, 34-24
Week 6 opponent: vs. Detroit Lions
One thing to know: The Packers rebounded in a big way from a loss to Philly in Week 4, forcing three turnovers and generally suffocating the Cowboys' offense. This week's MVP goes to Aaron Jones, however, as he scored four touchdowns while accumulating 182 total yards.

3. Kansas City Chiefs
Last week: 1st
Week 5 result: Lost to the Colts, 19-13
Week 6 opponent: vs. Houston Texans
One thing to know: This week marked the first time that the Kansas City Chiefs failed to score at least 26 points since Patrick Mahomes took over as the team's starting quarterback. The Chiefs are still likely the second-best team in the AFC, but if you can find a way to stifle their offense, they're vulnerable.

2. New Orleans Saints
Last week: 3rd
Week 5 result: Beat the Buccaneers, 31-24
Week 6 opponent: at Jacksonville Jaguars
One thing to know: Teddy Bridgewater provided some great perspective on his career after throwing for 313 yards and 4 touchdowns: "Every morning, I'm able to wake up and put my feet on the ground, I'm able to tie my own shoes, and there was a time in my life that I wasn't able to do that."
