Top NFL Twitter Trolls of Week 6 include Steelers, Jets, Pats

What a time to be a fan of New York (State) football!

For the first time ever, the Buffalo Bills, New York Giants and New York Jets all have a six-game winning record.

Both the Giants and Jets have four upset wins in 2022, marking the first time multiple teams have done so in the same season. It also ties the most upset wins in the first six games of the Super Bowl era.

Success on the grill allows social media teams to show off their playbook, and this week’s winners seized the opportunity.

Here’s where the Giants and Jets stand alongside the top NFL social media trolls of the week:

Before the Giants completed their 10-point comeback, Justin Tucker missing a basket looked upset about the day. In the first quarter, Tucker’s 56-yard field goal attempt hit the left post. Prior to this miss, he had made 10 straight field goals from 50+ yards since the 2020 season.

Former New York defensive end Justin Tuck was sidelined and followed fans on Twitter who mistook him for the Ravens kicker.

The New York social account relished the victory that made the team 5-1, their best start in six games since 2009.

The Jets were an underdog in all six games this season, but their win on Sunday tied the Cleveland Browns in 2001 as they became the second Super Bowl-era team to have a winning record in six games despite his underdog status.

Good news for Jets fans: Their team is 3-0 on the road for the first time since 2010, which was the last time the Jets made the playoffs.

The 17-point loss is tied for the Packers’ second-biggest home loss in a game started by Aaron Rodgers. Sauce Gardner apparently enjoyed the trip to Lambeau.

Pittsburgh started on a high note by scoring an opening touchdown for the first time since Week 10 of last season, which tied with the Giants for the longest active streak in the league. Freshman quarterback Kenny Pickett left the game with an injury in the fourth quarter, but the win was still enough to end Tom Brady’s 12-game winning streak against rookie starting quarterbacks.

The Steelers ended another historic streak by beating the Buccaneers for the biggest upset so far this season.

Players on both sides had ties to the opposing team as Andy Dalton faced his former team while former LSU stars Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase returned to Louisiana.

Burrow arrived at the Superdome wearing Chase’s LSU Tigers No. 1 jersey, a nod to the last time they played in the stadium and won a national championship. Burrow’s pre-game fashion statement might have set the tone for his touchdown pass to Chase with less than two minutes left.

It was a fitting ending to Burrow and Chase’s “homecoming.”

Chase also gave Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki some feedback on his grid. The dance was popularized by him and Burrow’s former LSU teammate and current Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson.

To put it lightly, rookie quarterback Bailey Zappe’s first start on the road went pretty well.

Zappe split the ball and five Patriots players had at least four receptions apiece for the first time since Week 8 of 2017 against the Los Angeles Chargers (Rob Gronkowski, Brandin Cooks, Rex Burkhead, James White, Chris Hogan).
