JG's Week 6 Picks

Kansas City (+6) @Washington- The Redskins will become the first team in NFL history to begin the season against six winless teams. Sadly for the Skins they are only 2-3. In those two wins they won by only a combined 5 points. Washington will be able to pull this one off at home, only because the Chiefs are playing horrible football, yet it won't be by six points.

Redskins 12- Chiefs 7

Houston (+5.5) @Cincinnati- The Bengals come off another impressive win as they beat a tough Ravens squad. They have proved that they are a going to be serious players late in the season. That being said, all of their wins have been decided in the last minute. The Bengals win the game but Andre and the boys keep it within reach.

Bengals 27- Texans 24

Cleveland (+14) @Pittsburgh- The Bills Browns game last week honestly looked more like a Pop Warner game than a National Football League game. The Brownies were able to win despite completing only two passes the whole game. The Steelers are an entirely different animal. The Steelers smash the Browns at Heinz Field.

Steelers 27- Browns 10

Baltimore (+3) @Minnesota- In the matchup of the week, expect the Ravens to send a lot of guys at Favre throughout the game. They will load up the box to stop Peterson and concentrate on putting pressure on Brett. If they can get to #4 early, it could be a long day for the Vikings offense. Unfortunately for the Ravens though, Favre has seen every blitz in the book and will be able to dink and dunk right over top of the blitz.

Vikings 28- Ravens 24

St Louis (+9.5) @Jacksonville- The Rams may be the worst team of all time. Enough said.

Jaguars 31- Rams 20

New York Giants (+3) @New Orleans- This fantastic game features the Giants #2 ranked offense and the Saints #3 ranked O. With the offenses pretty evenly matched thus far, this game will come down to the fact that the Giants D has been lights out and have the #1 ranking in the league.

Giants 24- Saints 21

Carolina (-3) @Tampa Bay- Last year this game late in the year went a long way in determining the NFC South. This year though, it may go a long way in determining the number one draft pick. The two teams combine for only one win. The Panthers win and cover in a very ugly game in Tampa.

Panthers 20- Buccaneers 14

Detroit (+14) @Green Bay- The Packers are clearly the superior team in this matchup. 14 points is far too many though for a Lions team that has played well the last few weeks.

Packers 34- Lions 21

Philadelphia (-14.5) @Oakland- 14 points may be too many for the Lions, but 14.5 is not nearly enough for the Raiders. Jamarcus Russell misses open receivers like Gary Anderson misses conference championship clinching field goals.

Eagles 41- Raiders 13

Arizona (+3) @Seattle- The Seahawks are starting to return to their form of being the NFC West champions. Matt Hasselbeck's squad has always played well in front of the 12th man at Quest Field. Seattle makes it clear that the NFC West will be decided between them and the 49ers.

Seahawks 28- Cardinals 24

Buffalo (+9.5) @New York Jets- The Bills are disgracing the great city of Buffalo right now. Bills fans have purchased a billboard that asks for Coach Dick Jaurons firing. The Jets have been struggling as well the last couple of weeks. They are coming off a short week and the Bills will play just well enough to cover.

Jets 17- Bills 10

Tennessee (+9.5) @New England- Kerry Collins may be on his way out of the starting role in Nashville. I would not be surprised if after this week Coach Fisher hands over the keys to Vince Young. This is only of course if they lose to New England. Right now that seems like a sure thing.

Patriots 27- Titans 17

Chicago (+3.5) @Atlanta- The Georgia Dome will be rockin for its first prime time game in a while. The Falcons looked great last week going across the country to beat down Singletary's team. The Dirty Birds will keep it rolling against the Bears.

Atlanta 24- Chicago 20
