  • Week 6 of the NFL season is almost in the books.

  • Aaron Rodgers and Lamar Jackson were the big winners of Week 6.

  • The Detroit Lions were losers, falling to 0-6 on the season.

Week 6 of the NFL season was filled with action.

Aaron Rodgers proved once again that he owns the Chicago Bears, and Lamar Jackson made history with another win.

Meanwhile, the Detroit Lions lost again and now stand as the only remaining winless team in the league.

Take a look below at all the winners and losers from Week 6 of the NFL season.

WINNER: Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers scored the game-sealing touchdown for the Packers against the Chicago Bears, scrambling out of the pocket and into the end zone for a six-yard score to put Green Bay up 24-14 with just four minutes to play.

As booed reigned down, Rodgers had words for the Chicago crowd.

"All my f---ing life, I own you," Rodgers shouted. "I still own you. I still own you."

"I looked up in the stands, and in the front row, all I saw was a woman giving me the double bird," Rodgers said after the game. "So I'm not sure exactly what came out of my mouth next."

With a 22-5 career record against the Bears, it's hard to argue with Rodgers' claim of ownership.

LOSER: Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions are now the last remaining winless team in the NFL. If you want one stat to exemplify just how bad things are in Detroit right now, there are plenty of options, but this is my favorite.

Not ideal.

WINNER: Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars won their first game since Week 1 of 2020, taking down the Miami Dolphins in London. Jacksonville first tied the game 20-20 with one of the most mind-blowing kicks you'll ever see. Look at this thing turn.

After the Dolphins turned the ball over on downs, the Jaguars faced fourth-and-8 from the Dolphins' 44-yard line with just five seconds remaining in a tie game. Head coach Urban Meyer could have sent out kicker Matthew Wright for what would have been a 61-yard field goal, or put his offense back on the field for a hail mary attempt.

Instead, the Jaguars ran a quick slant over the middle, picking up the first down and calling a timeout with just one second left on the clock, leaving Wright to kick a much more manageable 53-yard field goal for the win.

It was an impressive decision from Meyer, and it paid off. That said, even with the win, it's still been more than a year since the Jaguars tasted victory on American soil.

LOSER: Sportsbooks

In the early window of Sunday's schedule, seven games were played. All seven teams that were favored to win not only won, but covered the spread.

Bettors tend to bet the favorites, especially in parlays, teasers, and other small bets that can result in huge payouts. With all of the favorites covering early, it was a tough day for the sportsbooks.

"It's a bloodbath," Caesars vice president of trading Craig Mucklow told the Las Veags Review-Journal. "There's going to be plenty of money to play with at Caesars, that's for sure."

Do not have sympathy for the sportsbooks, I assure you they are doing fine. Here's to hoping all the casual bettors out there made some cash this weekend.

WINNER: Trevon Diggs

With just over two minutes remaining, the Cowboys trailed the Patriots 21-20, with New England starting a drive that could have ended the game.

When they needed him most, Cowboys defensive superstar Trevon Diggs made a play, picking off Mac Jones and taking his interception to the house to put the Cowboys up 26-21.

The pick tied an NFL record as Diggs' seventh interception in six games. He had put his team ahead. He was on top of the world. What could possibly go wrong?

LOSER: Trevon Diggs

On the very next play from scrimmage, Diggs got absolutely bamboozled in coverage, giving up a 75-yard touchdown to Kendrick Bourne.

Easy come, easy go. Thankfully for Diggs, the Cowboys would prevail in overtime.

WINNER: The post-Gruden Raiders

No Gruden, no problem. The Las Vegas Raiders cruised to victory over the Denver Broncos in their first game of the post-Gruden era, with interim head coach Rich Bisaccia leading the team to the win.

"The worst part for me was figuring out the headset," Bisaccia said after the game.

The Raiders are 4-2 and currently hold a share of the lead of a crowded AFC West division. With games against the Eagles and Giants coming up, their season is far from over even with the sudden removal of their old head coach.

WINNER: Lamar Jackson

In one of the more surprising results of the day, the Baltimore Ravens walked all over the Los Angeles Chargers, marching to an easy 34-6 victory. Lamar Jackson now has won more NFL games before turning 25 than any other player in history.

Pretty good for a running back.

LOSER: Jamal Adams

Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams boasted he was "the best in the nation" during his "Sunday Night Football" introduction. The only problem? Just underneath his video introduction was a graphic informing viewers he was ranked 62nd out of 85 safeties in the league, according to Pro Football Focus.

Jamal Adams is a fine player, and PFF rankings are hardly the end-all be-all of player evaluating. Still, talk about poor timing.
