|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.
|The return of Westbrook and more
importantly left offensive tackle Thomas should be enough to right the
underachieving Eagles over the low-flying Jets
|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.
|The Texans can't run the
football, and the Jaguars haven't forgotten their two regular season
loses to their division rivals.
|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.
|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.
|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.
|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.
|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.
|The Saints are not a good
football team -- particularly on offense -- and the Seahawks are
particularly tough at home.
|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.
|The difference in this one might
well be the one less day Dallas had to prepare for this potential Super
|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.
