    NFL picks: week 6

    Last week could be classified as the week of the bounce back, as the Texans and Panthers kicked last second FGs to win their games while the Giants, Bears, and Cowboys stormed back from a halftime deficit to win theirs as well. The Steelers, Redskins, and Chargers also won after a disappointing loss in their previous games. The Cowboys in particular played in arguably the game of the season so far as they overcame 6 turnovers by Romo (2 returned for TDs) and numerous dropped passes to score 9 points in the last 20 seconds to beat the Bills.

    Last week most people had their own bounce backs after the previous week. jdawg took top honors thanks to the tiebreaker. Overall, Bortaz still retains the top spot while Dutch swoops in to tie temple for second with Moosashi in third. Percentagewise, Amra takes third. Last week Ash was out of 1 for sticking with the Saints.

    Well, I could go with the obvious and take the Pats/Cowboys as the game of the week, but I'll go with the Skins/Pack instead. Should be fun in Lambeau.

    Good luck everyone!

    Looks like we have the same picks... Almost all of these games seem like no-brainers, but I'll find a way to go 8-5.

    I also love how the AFC South is probably the best division in the NFL. Gonna be tough for the Jaguars to make the playoffs competing against the Colts, Texans and Titans, but damn, it makes for a lot of great matchups!

    My uncle won 2 box seats to the Pats/Boys game through his employer. Amazing.

    By the way, I picked the Pats over my Cowboys, that way if the Cowboys win, I'm happy, and if the Cowboys lose, I have some consolation here.

    St. Louis Rams at Baltimore Ravens
    Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars

    Pats/Cowboys should be interesting indeed, but I honestly think the Pats will win in a walk. I'm a little annoyed that the Giants have the Monday night game though, since I'll miss the second half due to work. Boooooooooo.

    I'm annoyed because it's the freakin' Giants and Falcons on Monday Night. Big Deal. Put a good game on Monday Night. What are the rules on which games ESPN gets to choose for its games?

    To be fair, I bet that looked like it would be a game when the television schedules were made. Strahan and Umenyiora trying to contain Michael Vick with new head coach Bobby Petrino calling the plays, possibly with an improving Eli Manning tossed in there somewhere. It's not terribly hard to see why it got put on prime time.

    But now, the Giants are struggling to be more than mediocre and the Falcons are just plain awful. Then again, somehow Cowboys/Bills turned out to be a VERY entertaining game. Who knows?

    Yeah don't get me wrong, I can see the reasons behind most all MNF games being chosen, but you can't argue this turned out to be a dud game for them. I can even see why the Bills/Cowboys game was so highly anticipated, what with Dallas not playing in Buffalo since they met for the last time in the Super Bowl.

    2nd huh? Not bad since I was dead last after week one. Still plenty of time to catch that sneaky Bortaz. For the record, anyone who got Carolina right last week sold their soul to the devil. I don't care how bad the saints have looked you all took David Carr on the road, and he even missed part of the game. Soul, gone, was it worth it?
