The quarterbacks for the Cleveland Browns, Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles, respectively, struggled in Week 6. Mayfield and Cousins combined to throw five interceptions in their respective losses to the Pittsburgh Steelers and Atlanta Falcons. Wentz didn't reach 100 yards passing until late in the third quarter. Wentz, however, did rally in the fourth quarter, before losing to the Baltimore Ravens.
Mayfield, who is dealing with a rib injury, left the game in the third quarter and was replaced by Case Keenum.
This was the general sentiment:

For Cousins and Mayfield, interceptions were a huge problem.

Entering today, the Falcons had allowed the highest Total QBR (81.8) in the NFL, 15 Pass TD to just 2 Int, and had not held an opponent scoreless in the first half.

Today marks Baker Mayfield's 11th career game with multiple interceptions.— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) October 18, 2020
Only Jameis Winston (13) & Philip Rivers (12) have more such games since Mayfield entered the league in 2018. pic.twitter.com/AqNpLy9biW
Social media was quick to roast the QBs, but also mount a bit of defense for Wentz.
