Week 6 of the NFL season features a matchup between two of the league's most high-powered offenses as Houston Texans take one the Kansas City Chiefs. Leading these talented offensive groups are two great young quarterbacks, in Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes.

From a statistical standpoint, this will be the greatest NFL quarterback matchup of all time. Mahomes, the reigning league MVP and the favorite to win it again, has the best quarterback rating in league history, at 112.4.

Watson, a terrific quarterback in his own right, has the second-best quarterback rating of all time, at 105.4. The Houston quarterback is also entering this game fresh off an incredible Week 5 performance against the Atlanta Falcons, in which he passed for 426 yards and five touchdowns.

Despite looking out of sync the past couple weeks, Mahomes continues to put up huge numbers for the Chiefs, passing for over 300 yards in every game this season, while throwing no interceptions. His 1,831 yards lead the NFL, while his 11 passing touchdowns are tied for second.

With the highest over/under of Week 6 at 55.0 points, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, we should be in for some big numbers from both of these quarterbacks on Sunday.
