Week Six NFL Picks: Can the Packers Upset the Texans?


Oakland Raiders at Atlanta Falcons

I’ve seen the Raiders do some crazy things, but playing in Atlanta is one of the hardest tasks for any team to take on. I don’t think the Raiders can win this game unless they bring their A+ game and something goes wrong with Atlanta. Matt Ryan is going to have to make mistakes for the Raiders to have a shot, and I don’t see that happening.

PICK: FALCONS

 

Cincinnati Bengals at Cleveland Browns

The Browns are 0-5, and I don’t think they are going to go without a win this season. This could be the game the Browns decide to show up, score enough points, and win. They are playing at home and have their best defensive player in Joe Haden back. Call me crazy.

PICK: BROWNS

 

St. Louis Rams at Miami Dolphins

What’s going on with both of these teams? I thought both of them would be horrid this season. This is a tough game to pick because when you think the Dolphins are going to win, they have lost, and when you think they are going to lose, they win. I think that this game is a toss up, but I like the home team.

PICK: DOLPHINS

 

Indianapolis Colts at New York Jets

This is a pickup game for the Jets and I am not so sure they will lose a few in a row on their home field. That being said, I think the Colts have the better QB here, and they have a lot more pep in their step. I’m going out on a limb here.

PICK: COLTS

 

Detroit Lions at Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles are almost unbeatable at home when Michael Vick starts and finishes a game. I am going with the Eagles here.

PICK: EAGLES

 

Kansas City Chiefs at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Here’s to this season’s toilet bowl. This is a horrid looking game on paper, but somebody’s gotta win! Brady Quinn vs. Josh Freeman in this one, who you got?

PICK: BUCCANEERS

 

Dallas Cowboys at Baltimore Ravens

This could turn out to be a pretty good game, but I’m not going to be the guy who bets against the Ravens in their home field to a struggling Cowboys team.

PICK: RAVENS

 

Buffalo Bills at Arizona Cardinals

Maybe it’s just me, but after seeing that Cardinals OL perform so poorly on Thursday Night Football, I feel like they might hit a bit of a funk. Call me crazy here, too.

PICK: BILLS

 

New England Patriots at Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks are tough, and this could be a trap game for New England coming off of a big win against the Denver Broncos. Still, I’m not going to bet against Tom Brady here.

PICK: PATRIOTS

 

New York Giants at San Francisco 49ers

This is a very tough game to pick, and I’m not going to try to justify it.

PICK: 49ERS

 

Minnesota Vikings at Washington Redskins

I think the Vikings are the story of the season so far, and the fact that RG3 is playing makes this game so much more exciting.

PICK: VIKINGS

 

Green Bay Packers at Houston Texans

Why do I feel an upset coming?

PICK: PACKERS

 

Denver Broncos at San Diego Chargers

This is a must-win game for the Broncos, and the Chargers are hungry after a tough loss to the Saints. This should be a good game.

PICK: BRONCOS
