NFL Week 6 Picks: Who Will Win in Week 6 and Why?

Megatron and the Lions will beat the in-form 49ers in week 6

49ers@Lions

Great match-up of two in-form sides; The 49ers (4-1) recorded their largest win since 1987 last week and are probably only five wins away from winning the NFC East.  I would have picked them against most teams this week but Detroit (5-0) isn't one of them. Game of the week

 

– Pick Lions

 

Panthers@Falcons

Don’t be fooled by Carolinas (1-4) record. They have been competitive in nearly all their losses, with some of those games being against much better teams than the Falcons (2-3)

 

-Pick Panthers

 

Eagles@Redskins

I still refuse to believe that Philly (1-4) are this bad. Last week Vick broke the all-time QB rushing record but his day was ruined by another record; most career interceptions (four). As good as Washington (3-1) has been, this game will determine the Eagles whole season. they have everything to lose and, because of that, I don’t think they will.

Am I right? Will the Eagles beat The Skins?

Colts@Bengals

Another good comeback for Cincinnati (3-2) last week against a bad side. This week they host another bad team  when they go against Indianapolis (0-5). Expect them to win again.

 

-Pick Bengals

 

Buffalo@NY Giants

Buffalo (4-1) has already matched last years' win total and proved last week against Philly that their great start is no fluke. This team looks legit.  The Giants (3-2) being at home might be a tougher contest but The Bills running game, with Fred Jackson in particular, will prove to be too strong!

Jags@Steelers

Pittsburgh (3-2) proved last week that they aren’t quite finished yet. QB Big Ben Roethlisberger also threw five touchdown passes against Tennessee, who are much better than Jacksonville (1-4). Steelers also have players returning from injury.

 

- Pick Steelers

 

Texans@Ravens

Houston (3-2) is a little banged up. Baltimore (3-1) is coming off a bye week and should be well rested. The Ravens are the home side and a top five NFL team.

 

– Pick Ravens

 

Rams@Packers

The winless St. Louis Rams (0-4) are one of the worst teams in the league, playing against an undefeated Green Bay, (5-0) who are the number one team in the NFL – Lock of the week

 

-Picks Packers

 

Browns@Raiders

Great win for Oakland (3-2) last week. Cleveland (2-2) should give them a tough contest but expect them to just win, baby!

 

- Pick Raiders 

 

Cowboys@Patriots

New England (4-1) running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for a career-high 136 yards and two touchdowns last week as the Patriots scored at least 30 points for the 13th straight regular-season game. Dallas (2-2), coming off a bye wee,k are the healthiest they have been this season and Romo's fractured rib should also be better. But I don’t suspect his decision making will be.  Tom Brady has not lost a home game since 2006 and that record will not be broken in Week 6.

Brees and The Saints (4-1) will beat The Bucs in Week 6

- Pick Patriots

 

Saints@Buccaneers

Last week's confidence destroying beat-down by the 49ers was Tampa Bays (3-2) worst ever loss.  Prior to that they were looking like a good team and I think they will come good again but this is too soon and against a great New Orleans (4-1) team.

 

- Pick Saints  

 

Vikings@Bears

Minnesota (1-4) looked great last week, winning their first game of the season.  The question for Chicago (2-3) must be whether they can prevent Adrian Peterson taking The Vikings into a seemingly much needed big lead?  They have thrown away so many games in the second half.  Pick the Bears to win a closely fought contest.

 

– Pick Bears

 

Dolphins@Jets

New York (2-3) is not as good this year but the team is still much better than Miami (0-4), who might just be the worst team in the NFL.  The Jets should comfortably win this Monday night game.

 

- Pick Jets
