From a missed PAT, to overcoming Mono, to the Chargers losing to a "Duck". Let's have a look at some of the Best and Worst of NFL Week 6
GOOD: The San Francisco 49ers
Ok ok, I hear you 49er's fans, your team is the real deal this year! Going into this week's matchup against the LA Rams, the undefeated 49ers were still doubted after wins against the Buccaneers, Bengals, Steelers and Browns.
While impressive throughout those wins, the jury was still out on whether or not the 49ers could produce the same results against a well-fancied opponent, such as the Rams, and boy, did they produce!
The Niners defence was able to keep the often gawked McVay/Goff offense to only 78 passing yards (the least since Sean McVay took over from Jeff Fisher as the Rams head coach in 2017).
The NFL has never been more accessible in Australia than it is today, made possible by Kayo and you can watch the season unfold and have two weeks free trial by clicking here now.
It didn't get better for the Rams in the running game as they only managed a combined 109 rushing yards for the game, albeit without superstar running back Todd Gurley II. At no stage did the 49ers look like losing this game as they moved to 5-0 for the season.
A big name scalp is just what the 49ers were after to prove the non-believers wrong, and not many come bigger than last years Super Bowl Runner-ups.
BAD: Matt Bryant

Dear, Oh Dear!
Things just keep going from bad to worse for the Atlanta Falcons.
After a shocking start to the season, the Atlanta Falcons would have circled this game against the re-building Arizona Cardinals as a much needed win. However, the 44-year-old Matt Bryant had other plans.
After scoring what looked to be the game tying touchdown with 1:53 seconds remaining, Falcons fans would have been thinking that a much needed win was still very possible, with overtime looking likely.
Especially with stalwart kicker Matt Bryant, who has kicked 566 out of his 573 career PAT's, dating all the way back to his debut in 2002! The old dog never misses! Well... rarely.
However chins up Falcons fans - it'll most likely be another 80.8 (or so) PAT's until he misses again.
