NFL Week Six Recap

Scott RiegerAnalyst IOctober 13, 2008

Well, another great week of football (still have the Monday night game to go). There were some surprising performances and some heartbreakers as well. Horrible officiating reared its ugly head in the Detroit/Minnesota game, which kept the Lions from getting off the schneid. 

The Cowboys caught a break at the end of the game when their field goal was blocked but Arizona had called a timeout. They then proceeded to lose in overtime on a...ready for this...blocked punt! Unbelievable. 

It was a great week for me again, with all of my official NFL plays coming through. The Colts easily covered the spread and really had their way with the NFL's No. 1 defense. The Colts appear to be back and Peyton and Marvin have their mojo working again as well. Easy win there.

I called a blowout in the Saints game and they didn't disappoint. This thing was over as soon as it started, as the Raiders looked every bit as horrible as their ownership. Another win here.

I had a good feeling that Thomas Jones and the Jets' running game would put up a good week, as I mentioned in my commentary, but three! Brett Favre didn't have to do too much in this one, just managing the lead. Cincinnati was hurt again by not having Carson Palmer in the game and frankly the game would've been a lot closer if he was. The Jets had no respect for the Bengals passing game and it showed. Another easy cover.

So, for the week

Overall 3-0 (+5 units)


In the college bonus play, we were anticipating a high-scoring affair between Oklahoma State and Missouri, and it was; unfortunately, Vegas was also expecting the same and there just weren't enough points to get there. Chase Daniel actually played rather poorly, which kept the scoring in check.

Bonus Plays 0-1

Check back for next weeks plays. I'll take care of the analysis; you just play the games.
