Throughout the NFL season, players are not going to have their best game each week.
But, when they do have a bad game they need to bounce back.
In only a 17-game season, star players can not afford to fall into slumps.
Here are the three NFL players that need a better Week 6.
Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams
The reigning Super Bowl champions have lost two straight games and are now 2-3 on the year.
Stafford was crushed last week in the Rams’ loss to the Cowboys.
He was sacked five times and had two turnovers.
The 34-year-old QB is tied for first in the NFL with seven interceptions.

He is a big reason for the poor play of the Rams thus far.
Facing the Carolina Panthers is a get-right opportunity for Stafford.
Carolina just fired their head coach, and they are starting backup QB, P.J. Walker in the game.
Stafford should have plenty of opportunities with the ball.
He can not turn it over as he has done in recent weeks.
If Stafford can take care of the ball the Rams have a chance to run away with this game on Sunday.
Russell Wilson, Denver Broncos
With how poorly Wilson has played this season, he could arguably be on this list every week.
But, his Week 5 Thursday Night appearance might have been the worst of the year.
Playing at home against the Colts, Wilson threw for 274 yards and two interceptions.
The Broncos lost 12-9 and all the pressure to perform continues to hinder Wilson.
It appears the former Super Bowl champ is suffering from a shoulder injury of some kind.
But, that is no excuse for how terrible he has looked in his first year in Denver.
The Broncos now have a huge Monday Night division game in Week 6 against the Chargers.
Denver is already 0-1 in the division and needs to avoid another loss.
The Denver defense has helped keep them afloat while the offense has struggled.
But, they paid Wilson that mega contract before the year to score points.
If Wilson does not show up and play great, the Broncos will have no chance of pulling off the upset.
Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars
To complete the quarterback trio, second-year player Trevor Lawrence needs a big Week 6.
After leading the Jaguars to a 2-1 start to the season, the Jags have lost two straight games.
Including last week to the Houston Texans, who were winless.
Lawrence was abysmal in Week 5, he threw for 286 yards and two interceptions.
Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence has 6 turnovers in his last 6 quarters, and 4 of them are inexcusable for anyone, let alone a "generational talent." Both INTs and both fourth-down fumbles were downright awful.

Plus, the Jaguars’ offense failed to score a touchdown in the game.
Week 6 is a huge game for the Jaguars.
They square off with the Indianapolis Colts, who they already beat in Week 2.
In that game, Lawrence was awesome through the air.
He completed 25 of 30 passes for 235 yards and two touchdowns.
It was one of the best games of the young QBs career and he is looking to replicate that in Week 6.
The Jaguars need Lawrence to play well on Sunday or they could be in danger of losing three straight.
