The New Orleans Saints (2-2) are the only team to win at least 10 games in the first four games of the season, but a loss in Dallas would leave them without a home playoff game since they’ve played in two of those games.
The defending Super Bowl champions, the Atlanta Falcons, are the other team to start the season with 10 wins.
Here are the NFL Week 6 Power Rankings:New Orleans Saints at Dallas Cowboys (Sunday, 8 p.m.
ET on CBS): The Saints should be able to hold off the Dallas Cowboys for a playoff spot.
The Saints are 8-1 at home this season and won’t play a team they’ve beaten in at least nine games this season.
This is a big game for the Saints, who have not won a home game since Week 6.
The Cowboys should also be able, with some luck, to hold onto their first win of the year.
This could be a good matchup for New Orleans, especially since the Saints have been struggling in the postseason.
Dallas has a tough road game coming up, and the Cowboys have been the favorites to win this one in a win-or-go-home situation.
Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans 49ers (Sunday: 8:30 p.e.
ET): This is going to be a hard game for both teams, especially for Atlanta.
The Falcons are coming off a win over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6, and they’ve won their past two home games against New Orleans.
The 49ers, meanwhile, have lost six of their past eight games in this series, and this is the only one they’ve lost to New Orleans in the regular season.
The defense is going the other way and the Falcons have been a bit inconsistent on offense, especially in the red zone.
The loss of Jameis Winston to the NFL could put Atlanta in a tough spot, as well.
Atlanta has lost four straight games to New England and has only allowed three touchdowns to the Patriots.
The Patriots have won the past five meetings, including two of the past three matchups.
The New York Jets at Indianapolis Colts (Sunday 1 p.l.: 8:00 p.d.
ET.): The Jets are on the wrong side of the playoffs, but they should still be in a good spot to make the postseason with a win.
They’ve lost three straight to the Colts and have scored 30 points or fewer in six of the six games this year.
The Colts have a tough stretch ahead, but this game should be a very interesting one.
The Jets have a chance to sweep the Colts, but it would have to come in Indianapolis.
The team that makes it to the playoffs this year has to beat New England in New England.
The Bills could also make it to a tiebreaker with the Patriots, but the Patriots have a much better chance of winning the tiebreaker.
The Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans (Monday: 1 p:m.
et.): The Titans are coming into this game with a 2-2 record and a lot of question marks.
They had a strong start to the season and finished with six wins, but that didn’t translate into the postseason, either.
They were bounced in the AFC South Championship Game.
The Jaguars have a strong chance to take a big step forward in the final weeks of the regular year.
The Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City Chiefs (Monday 7 p.a.m.: 4 p.p.m.): The Chiefs are going to need some help, especially at wide receiver.
They need to get Jamaal Charles back to the form that made him a first-team All-Pro, but he hasn’t played much of a role.
The Steelers could use a boost on that front as well, and there could be some help at receiver in the Chiefs.
The Chiefs have allowed 20 points or more to seven different receivers.
The Cardinals have a tougher stretch ahead.
The Buffalo Bills at Tennessee Jaguars (Monday 10 p.am.: 7:30 a.m.)
The Jaguars need to make sure they keep their offense moving forward, and their defense needs to get better in this division.
They’re averaging only 28 points a game and are in last place in the division.
The Titans should have a good chance to win, but their schedule is a challenge.
Buffalo is in last in the conference in total defense and has allowed 20 or more points to just four different quarterbacks.
The Raiders are the favorites here, and it could be tough for the Bills to get back to their winning ways.
The Detroit Lions at Tennessee Panthers (Monday 11:30 b.m: 4:30 c.m): The Lions are not very good at home.
They have lost two of their last three games in Atlanta and Dallas.
They’ll need some luck here, as the Titans are averaging just 21 points a night.
The Panthers are in first place in this
