Hide your eyes, the Rams and 49ers kick off the third week of the 2017 NFL season Thursday.

There are some interesting matchups, team and individuals, those looking to break in, break through or merely bounce back.

There are three winless NFL teams remaining five games into season and, unfortunately for the Browns, 49ers and Giants, they're all staring at a sixth straight loss this week.

The Browns will break in a new quarterback against the red-hot Texans; the Niners travel cross country to face the 2-2 Redskins, who are coming off their bye; and the offensively stunted Giants head to Denver to face the Broncos, who are also coming off a bye and have the league's top-ranked defense.

Here is Week 6 of the 2017 NFL season in five tweets:

1. Grounded Cardinals

Don’t expect Adrian Peterson to have much of an impact on Arizona’s stagnant running game. At 32, he has just 81 yards on 27 carries this season with the Saints and averaged only 1.9 yards on 37 attempts last season with the Vikings before injuring his knee.

2. Pick fil-A

The Jaguars lead the NFL with 10 interceptions and their league-high 20 sacks are a big reason why. They’ll try to force second-year Rams quarterback Jared Goff into some mistakes, but L.A. has allowed just six sacks.

3. Bad, bad QB, Browns

The Browns passed on Carson Wentz in the 2016 NFL Draft and then declined to select Deshaun Watson, trading out of the spots where each quarterback landed. Wentz burned the Browns in the 2016 opener, and now the Browns get to see Watson up close on Sunday. He is a Rookie of the Year candidate for the Texans, and the Browns are going with Kevin Hogan, their 28th starting quarterback since 1999.

4. Saintly security

Quarterback Drew Brees has eight touchdown passes and no interceptions, and the Saints have just one fumble, which they recovered. They’ll try to remain turnover-free Sunday against a Lions defense that has forced 11 — seven interceptions and four fumble recoveries.

5. Chief concern

The Chiefs (5-0) are the only undefeated team remaining but have had issues with the Steelers. After throwing five interceptions against the Jaguars, Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will try to prove he still has it against an injury-depleted Chiefs defense.
