We all know that football is a team sport and it takes everyone being on the same page to get a hard earned victory. But at the same time star players can be and typically are the deciding factor when you look back at game changing moments. Unfortunately, the superior performance from San Diego Chargers quarterback Phillip Rivers was not enough for his team to overcome the Packers. How many times have you heard of a QB throwing for 500 yards, while making zero mistakes (0 INTs) and still losing? The Answer: Never. He became the 1st QB in NFL history to achieve such a feat, in the process he also set Charger franchise records in passing yards (503), completions (43) and attempts (65). Insane.
Division games always carry extra incentive and emotion no matter at what stage of the season they occur. Normally both sides know each other very well and don’t like each other very much. That was every bit of true as the Seahawks faced off against the Panthers in one of the most exciting games this past Sunday. In between extraordinary plays, the refs had to separate the teams in between almost every play as trash talk was at an all time high but one way to silence the other side is to simply win. That is exactly what Cam Newton and the Panthers did, adding another impressive W to their unblemished record. Down 3, time dwindling and 80 yards away from the lead meant nothing to “Superman” as he led his team down the field connecting with Greg Olson to put the finishing touch on a 27-23 win.

Every Sunday set of match-ups come with the Good, Great and sometimes even the Ugly. Week 6 was no different, take a look at a few of the stand out moments from this week of action:
The Seahawks shocked with a double pass ending with Lockette mossing the defender.
Brandon Marshall became the 1st Jets receiver with 4 straight games with 100 yards since 1968.
Late in the 3rd quarter the Colts became instantly a favorite for worst play call of the season.
