We have yet to reach the halfway point of the NFL regular season and there are no undefeated teams remaining. The 1972 Miami Dolphins can rest easy for another season following Minnesota's 21-10 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday.
The Vikings (5-1), Patriots (6-1), Cowboys (5-1) and Seahawks (4-1-1), are the only teams with just one loss. Seattle is unique in this distinction by virtue Sunday night's bizarre tie with Arizona. A 3-3 game in regulation that featured a little of everything, but mainly really bad offense, ended up 6-6 after 15 more minutes thanks to both kickers first making longer field goals before each missed a chip shot attempt that would have won the game. As a result, the Seahawks are now games up on the Cardinals in the loss column in the NFC West. Seattle heads to New Orleans to face a Saints defense that has been a little more generous while Arizona gets an NFC Championship Game rematch with Carolina. Coming off of a bye, the Panthers get the chance to show that the defending NFC champs are much better than their 1-5 record indicates.
Six teams on bye results in one of the lighter slates of the regular season, but there are still some intriguing games on the docket. AFC East-leading New England looks to exact some revenge for its Week 4 loss to Buffalo, as the Bills must contend with Tom Brady in this one. And the Sunday night game is a battle for first place in the NFC East with the Cowboys hosting the Eagles in Dallas.
There’s also Denver’s repeat engagement with San Diego, Green Bay and Atlanta matching firepower in the Georgia Dome and the last of the London games, as Washington and Cincinnati are set to face off in Wembley Stadium early Sunday.
