Here are my NFL Week 6 picks:
(I was 11-3 last week)
Bye teams: Car, Chi, Jax, NO
Pit @ Ten – This could be a pretty lousy match-up. The Titans have been outscored an average of 20 points per game. But the Steelers have yet to win on the road. Pitt, I guess.
Oak @ Atl – Unlike the Texans, the only other unbeaten team, the Falcons are beatable. They have holes that will eventually give them a loss or three. But not this week.
Dal @ Bal – The Cowboys are in disarray. But coming off a bye week they should be fresh & prepared. The only thing is, they have to play the Ravens. Romo might set an INT record.
Cin @ Cle – The Bengals have a winning record despite allowing more points than they have scored. With Joe Haden returning, the Brownies will look to pull off an upset win.
STL @ Mia – The Dolphins are coming off a surprising road win, while the Rams have yet to win away from their dome home. Tannehill is improving and will pick up the W.
Ind @ NYJ – The only team more muddled than the Cowboys is the Jets, but their D is still fairly strong. Sanchez should hold off Tebow for one more week.
Det @ Phi – The Eagles might be imperfect, but they play very well at home. With Vick struggling, McCoy should get the lion’s share (mah) of the ball and run wild.
KC @ TB – The Bucs defense is actually pretty good, their offense just can’t keep up. Coming off a bye week, this team should give new Chiefs QB Brady Quinn a major headache.
Buf @ Ari – The Cardinals are undefeated at home and have a Top 5 defense. Losing last week will not have sat well, and with the extra time to prepare the Bills should be worried.
NE @ Sea – The Seahawks have the 2nd best defense in football. Surprising, I know. They just can’t score enough points to stay consistently good. This week will be different.
NYG @ SF – Seattle has the 2nd ranked D, but the Niners have the 1st. They have allowed only 14 points per game. Eli is good, but that’s hard to overcome.
Min @ Was – RG3 had to hit a wall at some point. Well, he hit something last week, I’m sure it felt like a wall. Even if he plays, the Vikings are simply the better team.
GB @ Hou – Rodgers is admittedly not playing his best football. The Texans, however, are playing theirs. They are the #1 team in the league, hands down, and look unbeatable.
Den @ SD – The Broncos/Chargers rivalry has become a great one, with both teams hating the other. Peyton better watch out for pressure, but if he can stay upright he will pick up his first road win.
