Week six in the NFL was another exciting week of football. Once again, there were some OT games and some games that had close finishes.
As mentioned in a previous post, the highlight for me was the botched fake punt attempt by the Indianapolis Colts.
This week should bring added excitement and new highlights for football fans to relish. I'll be happy this week if the Patriots obliterate the Jets.
Now for the picks.
Thursday Night Special - Seattle Seahawks (2-4) at San Francisco 49ers (2-4)
This won't be a very close game.
Although both teams are terrible and the winner will move out of the cellar in the NFC West, I don't put much stock in the 49ers victory last week. They beat a terrible Baltimore Ravens team. Seattle on the other hand lost to a good team and their schedule has been pretty tough.
This might be the breakout game the Seehawks need. Look for Seattle defense to dominate this game and cause fits for Colin Kaepernick, which will force Colin to make mistakes.
Seattle wins 27-10.
Snoozer of the week - Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-4) at Washington Football Team (2-3)
One team has to win doesn't it? Actually games can end in a tie but that won't happen this week.
This game will be boring. These teams aren't good at all and having them match up against each other makes for a game that football fans should avoid.
Washington wins 14-9.
Wild Card of the Week - Dallas Cowboys (2-3) at New York Giants (3-3)
After last weeks debacle by the Giants, it's hard for me to know which Giants team will show up.
Lucky for the Giants that this game is home against a divisional rival and that rival's starting QB is injured.
The Giants will find a way to win this game but it will be close.
New York wins 17-13.
Game of the Week - New York Jets (4-1) at New England Patriots (5-0)
In years past, the Jets have had their problems at Foxborough. We've seen some funny moments at the Jets expense and we've seen some blowouts.
The Jets come into this year's Foxborough match up a stronger and better team. At 4-1, the Jets are the turnaround kids.
This will be the Patriots toughest match up so far this year but Tom Brady will find a way to win another game.
New England stays undefeated and wins 24-21.
Monday Night Football (also Doubles as our Lock of the Week) - Baltimore Ravens (1-5) at Arizona Cardinals (4-2)
Both these teams are coming off defeats. The Cardinals started out on fire but have fizzled in the past couple of weeks and the Baltimore Ravens haven't got anything started at all.
It's a good thing that the Cardinals are facing the hapless Ravens. Look for Arizzona to bounce back in a big way.
Arizona wins 45-20.
That's it for this week. I got my picks in just in time for Thursday Night Football.
