Another Thursday evening showcase of NFL action, excited? If there’s any contest that has to interrupt the blowouts we’ve been treated to this season I’m trying hard to think if this will be that game.
Week 6 picks:
Indianapolis 28 @ Houston 23: At this point I’m just hoping for a good game tonight.
Jacksonville 13 @ Tennessee 12: Jaguars find a way to get a win in Tennessee where the Titans are great at holding leads. (They’re not.)
Baltimore 24 @ Tampa Bay 20: The Buccaneers have, at least, been competitive lately so I wouldn’t be surprised if they put a real scare into the Ravens – or beat them.
Denver 34 @ NY Jets 16: I could see a weird set of circumstances where….forget it.
Detroit 20 @ Minnesota 16: This could really end in a tie!
New England 24 @ Buffalo 19: Are the Patriots really considering moving on from Tom Brady after this season? I keep hearing this story – from reputable outlets – and it’s compelling.
Carolina 20 @ Cincinnati 27: I don’t know how explosive the Bengals will be without A.J. Green but I feel confident that Andy Dalton will find a way to manufacture touchdowns.
Pittsburgh 23 @ Cleveland 21: Steelers?
Green Bay 31 @ Miami 13: Packers.
San Diego 27 @ Oakland 9: Chargers.
Chicago 21 @ Atlanta 26: I picked the Falcons to win…and now they will lose.
Dallas 20 @ Seattle 24: The Seahawks won’t be able to fall asleep in this game.
Washington 17 @ Arizona 20: I’ll stick with the stronger defense on this one because I have no idea who’s going to start at quarterback for the Cardinals.
NY Giants 38 @ Philadelphia 34: I’m not going to say that the G-Men have that look but they are making plays – and Eli Manning is getting acclimated to the new system after a bumpy start. I think this will be the best game of the weekend. The Eagles are 29th in pass defense and have fallen behind too often (while of course storming back). They do here as well but they run out of time Sunday night.
San Francisco 21 @ St. Louis 15: If the Rams had a better option at quarterback I would take them in this game without even a hint of reservation.
Last Week: 11-4
