Live updates/open thread: Non-Eagles Sunday, Week 6

Eagles NFL

After their first six games of the season, the Philadelphia Eagles are perhaps the surprise team in the NFL, as they are sitting pretty at 5-1, which is currently the second best record in the NFL, and the best record in the NFC.

It's been a long time since it's been worthwhile looking at the records of teams other than the Eagles' NFC East rival, but with a better than 90 percent chance of making the playoffs, taking a peek at the rest of the conference perhaps isn't so crazy. Here's where the NFC stands heading into Sunday of Week 6:
