#Week six of the #NFL is behind us, and a lot happened during this past week in the NFL. From rookies shining, to veterans proving they still have it, the NFL is a league where anything can happen. With all the action finished and teams moving into preparation for week seven, what did we learn from week six? Who stood out and who made fans scratch their heads? Let's take a look.

Peterson still has the juice

Adrian Peterson made headlines throughout the season, from him having a heated discussion with head coach Sean Payton, to not being happy with his role in New Orleans. Last week he was traded to the Arizona Cardinals and many questioned if he still had the juice to be a premier running back.

He silenced those question in his game against the Buccaneers, putting on a dominant performance.

Peterson carried the ball 26 times for 134 yards and two touchdowns. One of his touchdowns was a 27-yard run, where he showed his elusiveness and his speed. Peterson showed many viewers that he still has the juice and we could expect a repeat performance this weekend against the Rams, as they have the third-worst run defense in the NFL.

Aaron Rodgers is human

#Aaron Rodgers is one of the NFL's best and most consistent players. When he isn't throwing Hail Mary passes that somehow get caught, he is talking about his preparation and his health. In week six against the Vikings, Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone to his throwing shoulder. There is a possibility that he could miss the remainder of the season and surgery on his collarbone will happen in the near future.

Rodgers has looked like he isn't human with his surreal plays and ability to take some monstrous hits without laying on the ground. It was an odd sight to see Rodgers lay on his back and not get up. He has been one of the game's most consistent QBs, and not having him on the field only shows that yes, Aaron Rodgers is human after all.

Deshaun Watson is the real deal

The Texans shouldn't have to worry about searching for a new QB for the foreseeable future. They were lucky enough to draft Deshaun Watson out of Clemson, and it is paying big dividends for the team. Watson took the starting spot in week two against the Bengals and showed flashes of what he could be in that game. Watson has hit a hot streak, proving that he is the real deal. Watson has scored 13 touchdowns over the last three games, showing that he is the QB of the future for Houston.

Carson Wentz is an MVP Candidate

Carson Wentz showed everyone why he is an MVP candidate when he was able to withstand the pressure from the Panthers' defense and lead the Eagles to a win over Carolina.

Wentz threw three touchdowns and took some big hits along the way, but never showed weakness. He has played way better than anyone would've hoped for him to play, as he has the Eagles sitting at the top of the NFC at 5-1.

Week six taught us a lot, but that's how the NFL is. You learn something new every week, and many more lessons will be handed out as the NFL season continues.
