The Cleveland Browns and the Houston Texans will square off on Sunday at the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. This Week 6 game has a scheduled start time of 1 p.m. ET and can be watched on TV on the CBS network, or online through live stream (details below).
The Cleveland Browns are competing to be the worst team in the NFL for the 2017-2018 season. They come into Week 6 on 0-5 and are desperately trying to get their first win of the season on the board.
If it gets any worse for them, their roster must know that many of them will be on the chopping block come the end of the season, so for many of them, they are playing for their careers over the coming months.
It's no surprise the Browns are the in basement of the AFC North, but no team has yet really started pulling away at the top of the division yet. The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens are tied for top spot on 3-2, with the Cincinnati Bengals in third on 2-3.
Meanwhile, the Houston Texans having a losing 2-3 record right now, but are still right in the mix of things in a poor AFC South division. At the moment the Jacksonville Jaguars have been the stand out team, but even they are on just 3-2 at the summit if the division. All three other teams - the Texans, the Tennessee Titans and the Indianapolis Colts - are on 2-3, meaning of any of the four teams in the division can string together a series of wins they are likely to take control of the AFC South.
The Texans will be hoping they can begin their push in today's game. They are massive favorites to win here and move back to an even .500 record, and after this they will wasn't to kick on. But first they have to ensure they get the win here today in Week 6 against the Browns.
Earlier this week in the NFL, the Philadelphia Eagles and the Carolina Panthers squared off for Thursday Night Football, with the Eagles eventually coming out on top 28-23 in a tight game of football.
Both teams came into that match up on 4-1, but it was the Eagles who came away improving their record to 5-1, where as the Panthers dropped back to 4-2 following a bruising encounter.
Cam Newton had the chance for a game winning drive, but the Panthers came up just short when the quarterback's fourth down throw bounced on the ground.
With that win the Eagles are emerging as real contenders for the NFC. They are being led admirably by Carson Wentz, who threw three more touchdowns on Thursday night. Oppositely, Cam Newton threw three interceptions, which proved costly for Carolina.
Things had been looking good for the Panthers, as they took a 10-3 lead in the first half, with Wentz not able to get going at all for the Eagles.
However, when Luke Kuechly left late in the second quarter following a concussion, the game was turned on its head, and suddenly Wentz was able to find a lot more time on the ball and was able to drive the Eagles into scoring position after scoring position.
