Another interesting week has passed in the AFC West and still the Kansas City Chiefs find themselves at the top.
Week 6 was not friendly to the AFC West, with all 4 teams losing.
San Diego Chargers
The St. Louis Rams defense and special teams were too much for the Chargers, sacking Phillip Rivers 7 times, knocking Antonio Gates and Malcolm Flyod out of the game and blocking a Nate Kaeding field goal on the way to a 20-17 victory.
The Chargers were served a heaping helping of Steven Jackson, who rushed 29 times for 109 yards. Rookie WR Denario Alexander, from Missouri, also caught his first NFL touchdown.
Gates is not expected to miss time with his toe injury. Floyd is expected to miss week 7 against New England Patriots with a hamstring injury. Patrick Crayton, who caught 6 balls for 117 yards and a touchdown in Floyd’s absence, is expected to start.
I ‘m glad I didn’t have to watch this one… Lots of incomplete passes… And lots of Frank Gore (25 carries, 149 yards).
Jason Campbell got the start at QB for the injured Bruce Gradkowski and Michael Bush got the start at RB in place of injured Darren McFadden.
Alex Smith pulled it together enough to throw two 2nd half TDs, just enough to get the 49ers their first win of the season, 17-9 was the final score.
Jason Campbell suffered a torn left meniscus in the game. Kyle Boller may receive his first start of the season in week 7.
Going into week 6, NFL fans were beginning the Broncos could pass the ball against any team at will. In week 6, the Broncos had their lowest passing output of the season. Kyle Orton threw for 209 yards and a TD, completing 14 passes in 34 attempts.
I the game, Tim Tebow scored his first NFL touchdown on a rush from the 5 yard line.
The New York Jets win 24-20 as Kyle Orton fumbles and turns the ball over with 42 seconds remaining.
