NFL Picks Week 6

Busy week or so, didn't get last week's picks up because my internet was out last weekend. I've been super-busy at work, and went to the casino last weekend. I basically broke even, ahead if you discount drinks, dinner and cab ride. Not bad, 11 hours of fun and no money spent! On to the picks (home team in caps).

Buffalo over DETROIT- I'm not real confident in this pick, the Lions are due for a win. I do think the Bills are the better team though, but it's going to be a close game.

BALTIMORE over Carolina- The Ravens will win, they're coming off a tough loss on the road to their friendly turf, and will take their revenge on the Panthers for last week's loss.

Cincinnati over TAMPA BAY- The Bucs are struggling, and the Bengals got embarrassed last week. Revenge game is stamped all over this one. Watch for the Johnsons (Chad and Rudi) to both have huge games.

DALLAS over Houston- Another big game for a Cowboy's team coming off a big loss. After T.O.'s meltdown last week, watch for Parcell's to have spent the week figuring out how to protect Bledsoe. It helps that they get to play the lowly Texans (with the #1 draft pick on defense!)

ATLANTA over New Jersey Giants- I just hate the Giants, and the Falcons have had 2 weeks to prepare. Plus, the Giants defense has looked pretty soft, and won't have an answer for the Dunn/Vick 1-2 punch.

Philadelphia over NEW ORLEANS- The Eagles look sharp right now, and Westbrook is supposedly pretty healthy. The Saints are a lot better than I expected, but they won't be able to stand up to a resurgent Eagles team.

SEATTLE over St. Louis- Although my Seahawks are missing Alexander and maybe Engram, they've had 2 weeks to rest and prepare for the Rams, plus they need a statement game after being embarrassed on national TV by the Bears. Plus, I think the Rams are much worse than their 4-1 record would suggest. Remember, 3 of their wins are against the Packers, Lions and Cardinals, and they didn't look great against any of those bottom feeders.

WASHINGTON over Tennessee- Run Portis, RUN! As long as Brunell plays ok, this is a good team with Portis in the line-up. And the Titans have yet to show any spark this year.

PITTSBURG over Kansas City- The Steelers NEED a win, and I think they'll get one this week over a banged up Chiefs. Even though the Steelers are hurt on defense, Cower's system will keep the Chiefs in check, and Big Ben will finally have a big game.

NEW JERSEY JETS over Miami- The Dolphins just look like shit, and even though the Jets got spanked last week, if Pennington plays well, they're a decent team.

San Diego over SAN FRANCISCO- Assuming the Chargers don't underestimate the Niners, and don't play Marty-ball, the Charges should win this one handily. Remember, I said if.

DENVER over Oakland- Um, yeah. The Raiders might not win a game this season, they are God-awful.

Chicago over ARIZONA- Leinart says he's not worried about the Bears because he's been in big pressure games before. But, he hasn't seen the Bears defense before. I think he's going to have nightmares after this game.

Last week: 11-3 (you'll have to take my word for it)
Season: 45-15
