Week 6 NFL picks

(Home team is in caps.)

One-sentence takes on each game:

Chiefs (+6) over REDSKINS

All five Redskins games have been decided by six points or fewer.

Texans (+5.5) over BENGALS

Interesting game -- the Bengals are 4-1, but they’ve outscored their opponents in those four wins by a combined 16 points.

STEELERS (-14) over Browns

Pittsburgh has to blow out a bad team at some point, right?

VIKINGS (-3) over Ravens

Unfortunately for Baltimore, with Jared Gaither out, rookie Michael Oher shifts to left tackle to square off against Jared Allen.

JAGUARS (-10) over Rams

The Rams have been outscored by 112 points -- worst in the NFL.

Giants (+3) over SAINTS

Tough call -- nothing more than a guess here.

BUCCANEERS (+3) over Panthers

The Panthers won last week, but Jake Delhomme is still pretty bad.

PACKERS (-14) over Lions

The Packers have an awful offensive line, but it shouldn’t matter this week against Detroit.

Eagles (-14.5) over RAIDERS

The Eagles have Donovan McNabb; the Raiders have JaMarcus Russell.

SEAHAWKS (-3) over Cardinals

Anything can happen in the NFC West, but the Seahawks looked pretty good last week with Matt Hasselbeck back under center.

JETS (-10) over Bills

When a team (Buffalo) loses 6-3 at home to a quarterback who completed two of 17 passes for 23 yards the previous week, it’s pretty tough to pick them no matter who they play.

PATRIOTS (-9.5) over Titans

I was all set to take the points until finding out that Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan will miss the game, meaning Tennessee will be without their two top cornerbacks.

FALCONS (-3.5) over Bears

Solid matchup between 3-1 teams, but the Falcons are better.

Broncos (+3.5) over CHARGERS

I’ll stop picking against the Broncos when they lose a game.

Last week: 8-6
Season: 41-35
