NFL Picks - Week 6

Last week 7-5-2
To date 42-29-3

We have to wait until Monday Night Football (we still hear Howard Cosell's voice saying MNF) to see Big Blue play. We hate when the Giants play on Sunday or Monday night. It generally does not go well. But we have confidence that should not be the case this time around and the Giants should remain unbeaten. The Browns went from the precipice of the playoffs last season to underachievers this season. They're 1-3 with their "great find", Derek Andersen, playing like a lost soul. Prediction Giants 31 Browns 13
Giants -8 at Browns

Jets -9.5 vs. Bengals
We flip flopped on the Bengals last week and we got burned by not taking them. The Jets are no world beaters, but the Bengals are in complete disarray right now.

Saints -7 vs. Raiders
The Raiders are working under new interim coach Tom Cable (is anything more interim than coaching under Al Davis?), but things shouldn't change much. On the other side of the ball, we're not hearing that genius tag thrown at Sean Payton much any more.

Ravens +3.5 at Colts
We don't like this Ravens team, but the Colts have been lucky to win at all this year. We can see this being a FG game.

Panthers +2 at Bucs
Whether it's is Garcia or Griese, there's no way should the Bucs be favored (some sites have the Panthers favored, but we use the line from Football

Vikings - 13.5 vs. Lions
We don't like this Vikings squad or double digit spreads, but we can see A.P. destroying the Lions today.

Bears -3 at Falcons
Wow, suddenly we have faith in Kyle Orton and Da Bears.

Dolphins +3 at Texans
Never thought we would be picking the Dolphins, but they have had some impressive wins. Houston could win this one, but it will be a nail biter.

Redskins -12.5 vs. Rams
What a turn out since week 1 in DC. Which is unfortunate, because we hate the Deadskins and it makes the NFC East even tougher.

Jags +3.5 at Broncos
Should be a high scoring game, but the Jags 'D' is much better than Denver's.

Eagles -4.5 at 49ers
Even without Brian Westbrook, the Eagles should win by a touchdown.

Cowboys -4.5 at Cardinals
Arizona isn't as good as their blow out win over the Bills and they're not as bad as their blow out loss to the Jets, but they're not nearly as good as the Cowboys.

Packers +1 at Seahawks
Most lines are now favoring the Pack as Seattle is down to 3rd string QB Charlie Frye. Pack should romp.

Patriots +5 at Chargers
Since their disappointing playoff loss to New England in the 2006 season, this San Diego team has just not been the same. They could very well win today, but it should be close.
