NFL Week 6 Picks: Can Matt Schaub and the Houston Texans Bounce Back?

Week 5 in the NFL has come and gone, and we now know one thing: Anybody can beat anybody else, anywhere.

Supposed Super Bowl contenders such as the Cowboys, Saints and Chargers all fell to what was set up to be inferior competition.

Now, there is no one favorite, and all the playoff spots are still wide open. 

In particular, Houston looked like a completely different team than in weeks prior. Forgiving the loss to Dallas, the Texans looked poised to make a run, and the schedule seemed to set up favorably with a home game against the New York Giants. But the Giants came to play like it was 2008 and chased Matt Schaub all over the field.

One week after taking out Jay Cutler, the Giants' revived pass rush put heat on Schaub all day and made the All-Pro QB look like he was that guy the Chargers drafted after Peyton Manning.

With all this buzz around the NFL's newfound parity, the talking heads on ESPN will be buzzing all week looking forward to the games during the weekend. Feel free to play some Monday Morning Quarterback on these, but here are my Week 6 predictions for the NFL's lineup of games.
