With parity running rampant in the NFL this season (just look at the AFC South), Week 6 can help weed out the playoff contenders and pretenders.
No division leader has more than a one-game lead in the standings, and the NFC East and AFC South have at least three teams tied for first place.
For the first time since 1970, there were no undefeated teams past Week 5 (the Colts knocked off the 3-0 Chiefs at home last week), further muddling an already-confusing playoff picture.
Despite only three intra-divisional games slated for this week, including a Tennessee-Jacksonville Monday night showdown, there are plenty of intriguing matchups on tap for the week. New England-Baltimore, Colts-Skins, and Jets-Broncos all have game of the week potential, as each team is fighting for the top spot in their respective divisions and looking for a leg up down the stretch.
Hard to miss a potential Michael Vick-Atlanta battle, although the former Falcon remains questionable for the game, with both teams unable to afford a loss against an NFC rival, and potential Wild Card suitor.
Exciting games are abound, and we will make them more exciting by picking winners according to the spread in Week 6.
