Christensen: Trevon Diggs, with one of the best starts in memory for a cornerback in the NFL

Like every Monday, we go with the conclusions after the sixth week of action in the NFL.

From the remarkable streak of the Dallas Cowboys, to the great performance of the Baltimore Ravens, among other topics. Without further ado, here’s the best:

TO) The second longest losing streak in history has come to an end. Matthew Wright gave the Jaguars the win with two field goals over 50 yards, and Urban Meyer breathes for now. The ovoid went to Trevor Lawrence when it mattered most and he responded.

B) I don’t know if that’s the answer for the future, but Tua Tagovailoa is the least of the Dolphins’ problems. Calls have been bad on offense all year, clockwork questionable, and the defense was vulnerable without its starting cornerbacks. Difficult season for Miami.

C) As a result of his legal troubles and attitudes off the field, many forgot how ridiculously talented Antonio Brown is. Leonard Fournette has revitalized his career at Tampa Bay, which is 5-1 despite continuing to rack up injuries defensively.

D) It’s inexplicable that Nick Sirianni puts so much on Jalen Hurts’ shoulders and forgets about the running game. The Eagles had only one carry in the first half, and nine total, which doesn’t make sense. At the moment, Philadelphia lacks identity on offense.

AND) The Rams offense hit the gas in the second quarter and didn’t look back again. Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp re-oiled the connection. The defense had four sacks, and Taylor Rapp had a dream game with two interceptions. If the defense plays like this.

F) Daniel Jones returned who does not take care of the ball for the Giants. He fumbled on the first play of the game, then threw three interceptions. As if that weren’t enough, an offense that was already heavily injured has now possibly lost Kardarius Toney to an ankle injury.

G) TY Hilton came back, and both he and Parris Campbell had receptions of more than 50 yards. At the same time Jonathan Taylor averaged more than 10 yards per carry, and the short-term schedule invites the Colts to dream in a division in which only Tennessee has a positive record.

H) Davis Mills’ performance confirms why David Culley declared Tyrod Taylor to be his starting quarterback. The Colts had allowed at least 25 points in every game, and Houston could only score three. It is particularly difficult for them when they have to play away.

I) Aaron Rodgers yelled to Chicago fans, “I still own him.” At the same time, the quarterback has not thrown interceptions in the Packers’ winning streak. Green Bay is 13-1 in the division with Matt Lafleur and I see no rival in the NFC North.

J) Despite injuries at running back, Khalil Herbert responded more than anything else for the Bears. The defense leads the NFL in sacks, but deflated somewhat after a great start. Justin Fields has moments of brilliance, and others that make you scratch your head.

K) Kansas City had its way against Washington, but constant turnovers are becoming a trend and worry me even more than the defense, which played one of their best games of the season. There’s a long way to go, but the Chiefs aren’t solid today.

L) Washington’s identity should be terrestrial, because if you ask too much of Taylor Heinicke, it will be a concert of mistakes that hardly results in a winning formula. Likewise, the match was lost when they forced three losses and were only leading 13-10.

M) Although the offense struggled in the first half, Ja’Marr Chase confirmed why he is the NFL leader in receptions over 20 yards, and Joe Mixon had a good afternoon on the ground. The Bengals defense dominated the Lions; great work from Trey Hendrickson.

N) The Ravens played by far their best game of the season. Baltimore’s passing defense had been vulnerable, limiting the Chargers to 195 yards in the air; at the same time they canceled the ground attack. In attack, they dominated on the ground with 187 yards. Candidate.

OR) The rushing defense is the main deficit area for the Chargers. So much so, that no one allows more yards per carry than they do; area to correct if they intend to be protagonists. At the same time, I would like to see more balance, because just 12 carries is not usually a formula for success.

P) Closing games is not the Vikings’ strong suit. This is not the first time they have squandered a double-digit lead against an opponent they were dominating. Calls get too conservative and almost pay dearly for it. The schedule is rough after his bye week.

Q) Although Sam Darnold led a good series that temporarily equalized the game, the reality is that he has not played well with Christian McCaffrey injured. Carolina’s offensive line is not good, but some sacks are the fault of Darnold, who has also been careless with the ball.

R) TJ Watt played a superlative game, and Chris Boswell had two crucial field goals to bring Pittsburgh back to .500. However, Ben Roethlisberger looks finished and I see it difficult for the Steelers to be protagonists with that offense.

S) Hard to understand why Seattle didn’t emphasize the earlier running game. Alex Collins and the offensive line played a great game, but ultimately it wasn’t enough due to Geno Smith’s costly fumble in overtime.

T) The Cowboys have won five games in a row. They had a lot of trouble capitalizing on rival territory, but when it mattered most Dak Prescott had a seamless series. Trevon Diggs is having one of the best starts to the season in memory for a cornerback.

OR) After one of the worst plays of his young career, Mac Jones showed all his mettle by responding with a touchdown that temporarily evened the game. Damien Harris ran fiercely all afternoon, but beating good teams is still pending.

V) We didn’t know how the Raiders would respond after an unusual week, and the defense forced four losses and had five sacks; Maxx Crosby flashed. At the same time, Derek Carr identified favorable pairings and had four passes of more than 20 yards in the game.

W) The Broncos’ 3-0 start is a distant memory. The defense now does not generate pressure and communication failures continue in the secondary. Teddy Bridgewater did not take care of the ball and as if that were not enough, Alexander Johnson and Garrett Bolles were injured.

X) There is no Kliff Kingsbury, no problem. The Cardinals offense has scored at least 30 points in five of its six games. The defense forced three losses, Arizona dominated a very good Cleveland team and the Cardinals remain the only undefeated in the NFL.

AND) The Browns are transforming into a hospital. They no longer had Nick Chubb, nor his two starting offensive tackles. Now Kareem Hunt is injured and Baker Mayfield suffered from his left shoulder injury. The worst thing is that they have to play next Thursday.

Z) I use my last conclusion to join the club of those who want to stop emphasizing penalties for taunting. Not every word is disrespectful, and a little excitement and celebration is something I always want to see after a play.
