The NFL Sunday odds feature more than a dozen games that are expected to be decided by a field goal or less. That should make for an exciting Week 6.

It all kicks off in just a matter of hours with the Carolina Panthers (3-2) playing against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-3) in London. The designated away team Panthers are 2.5-point favorites.

After the morning NFC South battle, a slew of 1:00 pm ET games should keep NFL fans entertained throughout the afternoon.

Cleveland (2-3) returns home after a difficult two-week stretch where they won against the Ravens and appeared to had found their identity, only to lose it a week later in San Francisco. The Dawg Pound is a 1.5-point dog to the visiting 4-1 Seattle Seahawks.

The Philadelphia Eagles (3-2) look to stay in first in the NFC East when they visit the Minnesota Vikings (3-2). The home team is spotting the Birds three points. The New Orleans Saints (4-1) play at Jacksonville (2-3), with the Jags favored by 1.5.

Another early game that should be close is Houston (3-2) at Kansas City (4-1), with the Chiefs spotting the Texans 4.5.

Someone Has to Win

Four winless teams remain in the NFL: the Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins, Cincinnati Bengals, and New York Jets. At least one will pick up a win in Week 6, as the Skins and Fins play against one another in Florida.

Oddsmakers and NFL experts say the Dolphins are perhaps the worst team in NFL history. And that’s why the winless Redskins are 3.5-point favorites on the road.

The Associated Press explains, “This week’s worst matchup in the NFL is so bad it could be good.” Tickets for the game at Hard Rock Stadium can be had for as little as $14.

DraftKings has the Dolphins’ Super Bowl odds at 1000/1, meaning a $5 bet and that unlikeliest scenario coming true would net $5,000. The Redskins are 500/1.

Evening Showdowns

The morning and afternoon games are followed by three evening and nightcap matchups that should bring a marathon NFL Sunday of nail-biting games to a close.

Fresh off their win over the Browns, the 49ers (4-0) take their defensive show on the road to Los Angeles for the 3-2 Rams. The home team is a field goal favorite.

The Atlanta Falcons (1-4) spot the 1-3 Arizona Cardinals 2.5 points in Glendale, and the 2-3 Tennessee Titans go on the road to Denver where the Broncos will spot them two.

The 3-2 Dallas Cowboys will look to keep pace with the Eagles in New York against the lowly Jets. Dallas is favored by a touchdown.

Sunday Night Football pits the Pittsburgh Steelers (1-4) at the Los Angeles Chargers (2-3). The Chargers are 6.5-point favorites. The next night, the 4-1 Green Bay Packers welcome the 2-1 Detroit Lions, and will spot the visitors four points.
