Week 6 of the NFL season offers quite a few juicy contests, with one of them happening in the city of brotherly love.

The Philadelphia Eagles and Detroit Lions will tangle in what should be one of the best games this weekend. The Eagles come in at 3-2 and need to keep winning with the NFC East as competitive as ever.

Conversely, the Lions are extremely desperate for a win. Detroit is 1-3 and fading fast in the NFC North behind the Chicago Bears and surprising Minnesota Vikings.

On the West Coast, the San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants will hook up in a rematch of the NFC Championship game from a year ago. The 49ers are incredibly hot at the moment, coming off of two straight victories in which they steamrolled the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets by a combined 79-3 margin.

Sunday night offers another beauty, with the Green Bay Packers and undefeated Houston Texans squaring off. The Packers will be seeking to get back on the right track after blowing a 21-3 lead to the Indianapolis Colts last weekend. The Texans, on the other hand, will try to remain the only AFC team without a loss.
