The AFC is now a two-team conference: it's the Buffalo Bills, the Baltimore Ravens, and everyone else. Walkthrough breaks down the Ravens' victory over the Los Angeles Chargers, examines what's wrong with the Cleveland Browns, and explains why the Kansas City Chiefs' win wasn't as impressive as the final score would suggest. Plus, we break down what makes the Minnesota Vikings so delightfully exasperating and dish out some Week 6 Awards.
Can the Cleveland Browns win big games? Is Baker Mayfield worth a nine-figure contract? Sunday's showdown with the Arizona Cardinals will help answer that question. Plus, Walkthrough solves the riddle of the Los Angeles Chargers' low DVOA, predicts how Bengals-Lions will turn out, and even finds a wager that will make Dolphins-Jaguars interesting.

The Raiders and Broncos are fading. The Dolphins are terrible. The Patriots are relying on their reputation and a soft schedule. Does that open a playoff door for ... the Bengals?

We know the Bills are good, but are they good enough to beat the Chiefs? Are the Cardinals getting lucky? Is Baker Mayfield's non-throwing shoulder bothering him?

We all knew the Bills would be darn good this season. But the Cardinals? At least the Panthers and Broncos cashed their reality checks after starting out 3-0. Meanwhile, the Chiefs solved all of their problems with a big win over the Eagles ... or did they? Monday's Walkthrough surveys a very strange NFL landscape after Week 4.
