NFL Week 6 Picks
Last Week: 11-3   Season: 46-30
Vikings may well be in worse shape at the QB position than the Bears. I like the Bears based on the strength of their defense and home-field advantage.
Pick:  Bears
The return of Westbrook and more importantly left offensive tackle Thomas should be enough to right the underachieving Eagles over the low-flying Jets
Pick: Eagles
Last season the Chiefs had the second-leading rusher in the NFL in Larry Johnson. This season through 5 games he's got 84 carries for 275 yards, a 3.3 average and no touchdowns. Enough said.
Pick: Bengals
The Texans can't run the football, and the Jaguars haven't forgotten their two regular season loses to their division rivals.
Pick: Jaguars
This Browns offense isn't going to make people forget Graham, Plum, Ryan, Sipe, or Kosar, but it's good enough to defeat the lowly Dolphins.
Pick: Browns
The Bucs have a very serious problem at RB. Look for the Titans to bounce back from a sub-par offensive performance with a road victory.
Pick: Titans
Hate to pick against the surprising Redskins, but they are banged up at the WR position and it's hard to see the Pack losing two straight at home.
Pick: Packers
Cardinals by a whisker, in this battle of the backup quarterbacks. Panthers have the league's best receiver while the Cards have the best tandem.
Pick: Cardinals
The Chargers are a flat out better football team on both sides. Raiders week-long stay at the top of AFC West will soon come to an end.
Pick: Chargers
The Saints are not a good football team -- particularly on offense -- and the Seahawks are particularly tough at home.
Pick: Seahawks
Falcons might use this date to evaluate next year's potential signal-caller in Eli Manning. By the way, Giants make it four in a row.
Pick: Giants
The difference in this one might well be the one less day Dallas had to prepare for this potential Super Bowl preview.
Pick: Patriots
Rams coach Scott Linehan stated after last week's loss he wasn't satisfied -- what an understatement. Ravens "D" is too strong for this rudderless offense.
Pick:  Ravens
