week 6 picks

wow, how time flies after this week we will completed a 3rd of the season. Teams now have more than enough film to be able to game plan against their opponents. after a horrible week 5 (4-9) i have fallen below .500 38-39 overall. my gut is torn on a lot of picks while i think i know who will win the spreads have been my downfall. Now with the picks.

Carolina @ Atlanta                         Falcons -3

Atlanta needs this game bad and I cant see them losing again at home, Carolina has been in every game and has backdoored the cover almost every week. This week will be different. Falcons 28 Panthers 24

Indianapolis @ Cincinnati                Bengals -4

Cincy has definitely been a surprise this year, they have played a lot better than anyone expected. Dalton is playing decent and A.J Green could be a stud. Curtis Painter showed some flashes, hooking up for big plays with Garcon each of the last 2 weeks. I hate indy no matter where they play but im going to take the 4 points.       Bengals 20  Colts 17

San Fransisco @ Detroit              Lions -3

Harbaugh has done a great job with this team and its good to see them playing well, but the Lions are a different animal this week and Stafford to Johnson is a unstopable force. If Best can continue to play like he did last week they can go far.          Lions 28 49ers 24

St Louis @ Green Bay            Packers -14

Spreads this big tend to worry me, but the Pack D has been fantastic against the run and the Rams passing game has been weak to say the least. Rodgers has his offense humming and Green Bay cruises. Packers 38 Rams 17

Buffalo @ Ny GIANTS             Giants -3

It seems like every week people say “if Buffalo wins this week we will know they are for real” Stop it!!!!!! The Bills are a good team and will be in the hunt for a playoff berth all year long. The Giants stunk it up against the Seahawks last Sunday and Coughlin will have them prepared for a tough home game this week. In a close game i think the Giants get the win. Giants 28 Bills 27

Jacksonville @ Pittsburgh            Steelers-14

I don’t really think Pittsburgh deserves to be this big of a favorite i would like to see the line around 10. Jacksonville looks totally lost so i have to lay the points and go with the Steelers.  Steelers 27 Jacksonville 10

Philadelphia @ Washington          Pick

I love the fact that the Eagles are losing, but i still think they are a quality football team. The Redskins have played well and will try to establish the run against a team that has struggled to stop it mightily. I think Vick has a huge game and the Eagles get back on track this week. Eagles 31 Redskins 20

Houston @ Baltimore       Ravens -7

The Texans were able to move the ball well enough to win at home to Oakland, But the Ravens D is a whole different story, They will struggle to run and that will affect shaubs ability to throw down field. Flacco has so far been the weak link on the Ravens. He has 2 horrible performances in the last 3 games but has been bailed out by the defense. He needs to play well this week and I think he will. Ravens 27 Texans 17

Dallas @ New England              Patriots -9

The Patriots were able to run the ball effectively last week and should try to do the same against the cowboys. Dallas has all their receivers healthy this week and the pats will want to limit their opportunities.  Same thing for the Cowboys the Pats are unstoppable thru the air so Felix Jones should get a lot of touches as the Cowboys also will try to control the clock. In the end it doesn’t really matter the only real ? is will the Pats cover, i think not. Patriots 31 Dallas 24

New Orleans @ Tampa Bay        Line New Orleans -3

Tampa has given the saints trouble over the last 2 years and this game should play out the same way. Lets hope Morris ripped his team all week for their lack of effort last week in San Fran. Brees will make enough plays to get the win for the Saints.   Saints 31 Bucs 27

Cleveland @ Oakland           Line Raiders -7

I really like Oakland in this game but i can totally se it being a let down game. The Browns are going to try to get more production out of Hillis so the Raider D needs to be ready. The Raiders are physical and run the ball better than any one else in the league, Campbell has been efficient even tho his completion % has been down. I’m looking for more of the same from Oakland this week. Raiders 27 Browns 14

Minnesota @ Chicago            Bears-3

Leslie Frasier is begging McNabb to not be so cautious, just go out and make plays. I’m not convinced this is a good move but they have to do something to get Percy Harvin more involved and open up the passing game. Peppers is banged up and the Jay Cutler is running for his life this must have Jared Allen salivating at a shot at the Bears. I like Minnesota to get their 2nd in a row. Vikings 20 Bears 17

Miami @ NY Jets                   Jets -9

Miami has won 3 of 4 against the Jets since Rex has taken over, but this is a different Miami team. The Jets need to be balanced to be successful on offense and they should be able to do what ever against Miami. The Dolphins need to run Daniel Thomas as much as possible as the Jets have been horrible defending the run. I like the Jets to win but 9 points is a lot to ask an offense that is struggling to cover. Jets 28 Dolphins 20
