NFL  > Arizona Cardinals  > WEEK # 6 PICKS
October 10, 2012, 03:38 PM
Thursday 10/11/12:
STEELERS @ titans- even without Polamalu and Woodly it will be a nice road trip

Sunday 10/14/12:

raiders @ FALCONS- Do I believe the Raiders learned to win on the road during their BYE WEEK? No. If they do it will be the upset of the week.

chiefs @ BUCCANEERS- 3 reasons, Home Field, NFC over AFC, game before Chiefs BYE.

COLTS @ jets- Colts beat Green Bay, Colts could win their next 5 games.

BENGALS @ browns- Don't wake the Browns they are waiting for 2013.

lions @ EAGLES - Will Jahvid Best play? The Lions are desperate and want to win one for "The Mad Duck", "Mongo" Alex Karras RIP, will they? Eagles are at home.

RAMS @ dolphins- Both coming off of big wins, coin toss goes to Rams.

cowboys @ RAVENS - Will Dallas get their act together after the BYE?

bills @ CARDINALS- This game will determine if Mario Williams is a bust.

PATRIOTS @ seahawks- Will N.E. bring their first or second half team?

giants @ 49ERS- The 49ers are better this year than last, NY isn't.

VIKINGS @ redskins- Washington has not beat a team with a winning record.

packers @ TEXANS- 3 reasons- Home field, better overall defense, and offense.

Monday 10/15/12:

broncos @ CHARGERS- Both teams lost last week on the road, Denver hasn't won a game on the road so far this year. Sorry to tell you Denver, you're on the road this week.

Am I crazy for thinking Buffalo can pull off an upset this week?

Yeah, I'm probably crazy.

Oh hell no...not on the road against Baltimore.

Buffalo will make Kevin Kolb look like a Hall of Famer.

I know it... I don't know why this stupid thought keeps creeping into my head. Seriously, it's the only pick I'm stuck on where I can't make a decision. WHY? Ugh.

Because there have been a few head scratching upsets. I just can't imagine this one happening though.

Take the Dolphins at home this week.

(Steelers) @ Titans - What team has been worse than the Steelers...the Titans. I realize the Steelers are without their two best defenders but this defense is still pretty good.

Raiders @ (Falcons) - Teams coming off the bye week have not been strong with is extremely bad news for a team that puts up 3 more points per game than the Jags. Oh yeah and they are facing one the top offenses in the game.

(Chiefs) @ Buccaneers - This is a tough one as both teams had lofty goals and neither have delivered. Chiefs defense has played fairly well and they did hold the Ravens to 9 points last week. Neither team is passing well so I'll go with the better defense and running game.

(Colts) @ Jets - The Jets kept it much closer against the Texans then anticipated but it never really looked like they had a chance to win. The Colts are coming off an emotional win and have played better than expected this season. I'll take the team on their way up against the team on their way down.

(Bengals) @ Browns - The Browns can look good at times but usually cough up the game at some point. I expect the Bengals defense to capitalize on mistakes by the Browns and the offense to score enough points to keep the Browns winless.

(Lions) @ Eagles - Both teams are playing like garbage and yet they are filled with talent. Vick is starting and has made plenty of mistakes against poor defenses so I expect that to continue. Lions are 12th in points per game and the Eagles are 31st.

Rams @ (Dolphins) - Battle of the defenses with two teams that are playing much better than expected. If the Rams had Amendola I would go with them but now they are down to only one receiver that has eclipsed 100 yards this season.

Cowboys @ (Ravens) - Oh how long ago that week 1 win over the Giants seems. Ravens offense is still up and down but either way the defense always plays well enough to keep them in the game.

Bills @ (Cardinals) - If ever there was an opportunity for the Bills front seven to look good this would be the week. The Rams made the Cards o-line look like a bunch of kindergartners playing two hand touch at recess. Unfortunately the Bills will miss Mark Anderson and the difference is the Rams defense was actually playing well.

(Patriots) @ Seahawks - One of the best defenses (Seahawks) meeting the best offense (Pats) and an average defense (Pats) meeting a weak offense (Seahawks). I'll use the scales here and go with the more well rounded team here.

Giants @ (49ers) - The 49ers are vulnerable after the Vikings loss and I realize that they have just had two dominating wins but come on, that was against the Jets and the Bills. I never like to pick against Eli, especially in games that will be close but I'm going to have to go with the 49ers here.

(Vikings) @ Redskins - The Vikings are playing well on both sides of the ball while the Redskins have shown improvement but not enough to take the step forward to compete for a playoff spot.

Packers @ (Texans) - Packers have a lot of problems, the Texans don't. A struggling passing game and a beat up struggling running game does not spell success against a dominant defense.

(Broncos) @ Chargers - I don't buy into the Chargers being a very good team and the Broncos played very well against the Patriots last week. Manning and the offense continues to improve each week and I expect to see them march to the top of the division by the end of the season. Well that march starts here.

i think buff. keeps the game close esp. when ariz. can't score more than 21-pts/gm.,.........*hint to bettors*.

Is Mario Williams finished counting his money?. I can't imagine him not sacking Kolb at least 2X, Maybe Mario figures he got his money and now it is time to act like Fat Albert Haynesworth ( Hey, Hey, Hey ) and roll into the sunset.

I'm gonna go out of a limb here,but the Titans may surprise,as far as the Browns Bengals game? It's a must win for the Browns and the Bengals haven't got thier s/h/it together yet on both sides of the ball and this is a divisional match, remember the Browns game against Baltimore.?

That was pretty tight.

good luck everyone! Colts beat the Packers! :)))
