Week 6 NFL Picks
An 8-5 Week 5 brings my overall record to 43-28 for the year. Week 6 brings me another chance to get to my desired 75% win percentage for the season.
Broncos 27 at Browns 13
The undefeated Broncos head East to take on a Cleveland team that has shown up offensively, but lacks ability on the defensive side of the ball. I expect Peyton Manning to bounce-back from him 0 TD 2 INT performance last week en route to another Denver victory.
Bengals 20 at Bills 14
Another undefeated team goes on the road, as the Bengals take on a hobbled Buffalo unit that won by the skin of their teeth last weekend. MVP candidate Andy Dalton should have his way with the Bills secondary this week as they stay undefeated and look ahead to a showdown with the division-rival Steelers in Week 7.
Texans 20 at Jaguars 23
This AFC South showdown pits two underwhelming teams against each other. This game will be decided by the defenses, whoever gets more pressure on the opposing quarterback will have the upper hand. Most would assume JJ Watt and company would get my vote, but I like Blake Bortles to stay upright and continue to prove he belongs in the NFL.
Bears 24 at Lions 30
The Bears are winners of two straight, while the Lions cannot seem to find any type of rhythm offensively or defensively, resulting in a 0-5 start. I like Detroit to get in the win column finally as Matthew Stafford responds positively after his second half benching last week.
Chiefs 17 at Vikings 34
The Chiefs have lost their best offensive player and their one true weapon in Jamaal Charles due to a torn ACL. According to Andy Reid, Charcandrick West and Knile Davis will be in a running back committee moving forward, but ultimately, that means nothing when Alex Smith is still behind center. I like the Vikings to take advantage in an easy home win.
Dolphins 29 at Titans 21
Coming off a bye week, the Dolphins emerge with a new coach and identity, at least we’re told. When a new coach injects life into a team, they usually respond immediately, and I like that to happen this week. Not saying it will continue through the year, but the Dolphins pick up the road victory in Dan Campbell’s debut.
Redskins 6 at Jets 13
The Jets are a rested team after having Week 5 off, and the Redskins who lost a tough game last week, stroll into MetLife Stadium hoping for a win. Washington is going to have a hard time handling the Jets defensive front, who welcome Sheldon Richardson back from suspension. The Jets win in a low scoring affair.
Cardinals 34 at Steelers 16
Mike Vick will start another game for the Steelers as they look to tame one of the league’s best teams. Vick will not be able to move the ball like Big Ben if he were available and the Steelers defense has a lot of holes that Bruce Arians will know how to attack. I like the Cards in a rout.
Panthers 10 at Seahawks 27
The undefeated Panthers will face their first real test in 2015. Heading to Seattle is a different animal, and Cam Newton will struggle in that environment. Look for the Seahawks to shut down the Panthers offense, and Jimmy Graham will show up on offense for two scores.
Ravens 21 at 49ers 17
In a rematch of the Super Bowl a few years back, both of these teams are struggling to tread water. The Ravens are in better shape and I expect them to pull out the win, just like they did in the Super Bowl.
Chargers 20 at Packers 34
It’s a shorter week and a long trip for the Chargers, who are underachieving at 2-3. Even if they bring their very best, which would involve Philip Rivers out playing Aaron Rodgers, they still won’t have enough to beat the Packers in their own building.
Patriots 34 at Colts 23
One sentence will sum up this game….Patriots roll in Indianapolis, with fully inflated footballs.
Giants 20 at Eagles 23
If Odell Beckham Jr plays, this will be a different ball-game, but I don’t think you’ll see him on Monday night, making the NFC East more muddled than it has ever been. Eagles win a tight one.
