NFL Power Rankings: Week 6; Eagles and Bills continue to dominate, Cowboys move up to Top-5

For at least a week, Philadelphia Eagles and the Houston Texans they had something in common: they both won on the same Sunday.

The first and last place in the classification celebrated at the end of their respective commitments.

For bet lines it was no surprise that Philadelphia got off to its first 5-0 start since 2004 by beating the Arizona Cardinals, but the Texans did break pools by beating the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road.

The 2022 season joins 1990 and 2018 as the only campaigns since 1970 in which each team has at least one win through Week 5.

In the equity league, all the organizations have already won.

And while the results for Philadelphia and Texans don’t alter their standings, there are plenty of marks and milestones that led to multiple scoreboards moving teams up and down like it was a game of snakes and ladders.

Like the Dallas Cowboys moving up to Top-5 without Dak Prescott taking the balls behind the center.

However, beyond all that, what we can celebrate is the new security measures adopted by the Players Union and the National Football League.

The new concussion protocol prevented the Dolphins quarterback Teddy Bridgewater returned to the field thanks to the observer detecting stumbles in his walk despite the fact that he had passed the tests.

Tua Tagovailoa, also a Miami quarterback, suffered a couple of concussions between the Week 3 and 4 that put the NFL on alert and forced the Players Union and the league to establish new scales in their protocols.

The health of the players must be a priority.
