NFL Week 6 Picks for Every Game

Athlon's experts predict winners for every game, including the Sunday night showdown between the Chiefs and Patriots

The NFL continued to put in some overtime with two more games in Week 5 needing more than four quarters to determine a winner. But at least we got two winners, as this time Cleveland took care of business in OT and beat Baltimore. That's right, the Browns now have TWO wins!

 

Otherwise it was status quo for the league's two remaining undefeated teams although the Rams had to overcome a seven-point deficit to outlast the Seahawks in Seattle. This week, Los Angeles heads to Denver for a game against the reeling Broncos while Kansas City takes its unblemished record and high-powered offense to Foxborough to face New England on "Sunday Night Football."

 

The Week 6 slate kicks off with the Eagles and Giants matching up on "Thursday Night Football." The defending Super Bowl champs are somewhat in a must-win situation, having lost two in a row. The good news for Philadelphia is that the entire NFC East is struggling right now.

 

Elsewhere, Seattle vs. Oakland will kick off this season's International Series in London. This will be the first of three games in London with another set for Mexico City in Week 11.

 

Other intriguing games on tap for Week 6 include Pittsburgh and Cincinnati playing against each other for the first time since Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier suffered a spinal injury in Week 13 of last season. The Bengals currently lead the AFC North and could put even more distance between them and the defending division champs with a win on Sunday.

 

Jacksonville heads to Dallas to take on a Cowboys team whose head coach is under a lot of scrutiny following the overtime loss to the Texans this past Sunday night. And there's also Tampa Bay vs. Atlanta, a pairing of teams with plenty of offensive firepower and suspect defenses. Jameis Winston will make his first start for the Buccaneers after serving a three-game suspension and then replacing an ineffective Ryan Fitzpatrick in Week 4 prior to the team's bye.

 

The Monday night matchup between San Francisco and Green Bay is one that has lost quite a bit of its luster following the season-ending injury to Jimmy Garoppolo (just one of many the 49ers have had to deal with) coupled with the Packers' own health issues and struggles.

 

So which teams will come out on top in every NFL game in Week 6? Athlon's own Rob Doster (AthlonDoster) and John Gworek (JohnGworek), along with AthlonSports.com contributor Bryan Fischer (BryanDFischer), predict the winners for every game this week:
