Itâ€™s hard to believe that the regular 2011 NFL season is nearing the half way point. Some teams itâ€™s time to send up a burn gun and beg for help. The St. Louis Rams, Minnesota Vikings, Miami Dolphins and Indianapolis Colts could all be eliminated from post season contention by Thanksgiving, as they failed be victories past 6 weeks.
Week 6, Detroit Lions are coming off of a tough 6-point loss to the San Francisco 49ers last week. Not only was it the Lions first loss of the season, but itâ€™s the first time they lost against the Las Vegas spread. However these NFL bottom teams Arizona Cardinals and Denver Broncos inhabitant will put together solid efforts in week 7 and rise high. The Cardinals will host the re-energized Pittsburgh Steelers in week 7 looking for their second win of the seasons and Denver Broncos searching for their first win.
The Steelers looked pathetic on offense in the second half last week against the Jaguars, and if Kevin Kolb and the Card’s offense can find the rhythm that has been missing all season long, Arizona should produce a solid home effort on Sunday. The Miami Dolphins will host Tim Tebow in his first start of 2011. Miami has lost in all five of its attempts to win, while the Broncos have won just one game all year behind the arm of Kyle Orton. The energy surrounding Tebow’s first start should catapult Denver over Miami in week 7.
