Heading into Week 6, there are a few NFL teams that simply need to win.
These teams have struggled in recent weeks and need to have the taste of victory again.
After five weeks of play, most teams are what they are.
But, there are still teams that have played poorly with playoff aspirations.
Without further ado, here are three NFL teams desperate for a Week 6 win.
Los Angeles Rams
The Rams have lost two straight games and are now sitting at 2-3 on the season.
Facing the Carolina Panthers in Week 6, this is a game the Rams must win.
The Panthers are arguably the worst team in the NFL and are playing with a new coach and quarterback this week.
Los Angeles enters the game as double-digit favorites.
If they can not beat the Panthers it is officially time to panic.
All eyes will be on the quarterback, Matthew Stafford.
He is tied for the NFL lead in interceptions this year with seven.
Taking care of the ball should be the most important thing for the 34-year-old QB.
Cooper Kupp will once again be the best player on the Rams’ offense on Sunday.

He has 49 receptions through five weeks and has continued his excellence from 2021 into 2022.
All the pressure is on the Rams to get back in the win column in Week 6.
Another NFC West team desperate for a win is the Arizona Cardinals.
This Cardinals team has beaten two teams with combined records of 2-8.
With their record of 2-3, they can not afford another loss, especially in the division.
The Cardinals are headed on the road in Week 6 to face the Seattle Seahawks.
This could be a tough game for the Cardinals as Seattle has been surprisingly good on offense this year.
Geno Smith is having the best season of his career and has the Seahawks averaging 25.4 points per game.
All the pressure in this game is on Kyler Murray.
After receiving a mega-contract in the offseason, Murray has not played great to start the year.
He has 1,241 passing yards with six touchdowns and three interceptions.
The Cardinals need to show they can beat a decent team on the road, and in Week 6 they have an opportunity to do that.
Well, what do you know?
The Denver Broncos are once again on primetime.
Maybe this time they will give us a game worth watching.
Denver has been one of the most disappointing teams in the NFL this season.
They are 2-3 and are sporting an offense averaging 15.0 points per game.
Facing AFC West foe, Los Angeles Chargers, the Broncos need to get their first division win of the year.
Wilson needs to play well in this game to give Denver a chance.
He must throw the ball with more accuracy and utilize his weapons Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy.

Broncos get on the board

The negative noise around this team will only get louder if the Broncos suffer another loss.
Head coach, Nathaniel Hackett is already on the hot seat in his first season.
It would be rare for a coach to be fired before finishing his first season, but if the Broncos do not win in Week 6 anything is on the table.
