2016 NFL Predictions Week Six

Updated on October 12, 2016

And then there is one. The Minnesota Vikings is your only team left undefeated after the Philadelphia Eagles and Denver Broncos lost their game this past Sunday. What more surprises could we see this week? The Vikings have a bye so we'll have to wait a while before we see them in action.

Bye: Vikings, Buccaneers

Broncos @ Chargers: Gary Kubiak will not be involved in any football duties for the week after being taken to the hospital after Sunday's loss to Atlanta. The Broncos will be guided by Joe DeCamillis, Denver's Special Teams Coordinator with OC Rick Dennison taking over the play calling duties. A good debut from San Diego's first round pick Joey Bosa (2 sacks and 4 tackles) who will look to continue to spark the defense against the Denver offensive line which allowed six sacks last week. San Diego hopefully won't continue to be a let down late in games and the Broncos offense should get better who are looking to get Trevor Siemian back at quarterback.

Pick: Broncos

49ers @ Bills: Colin Kaepernick will be in at quarterback after the continued struggles by Blaine Gabbert were shown last Thursday. If Kaepernick were healthy to start the season, possibly they would be looking at a different record. It is an unknown. What is unknown is the recent defensive dominance Buffalo has shown. In the past three games, The Ryan's Bros. bunch have held teams to an average of 12.3 points per game, which is the third fewest in the NFL.

Pick: Bills

Eagles @ Redskins: The first loss is out of the way, and now the Eagles can look forward to their division rival. The Redskins are currently on a three game winning streak after starting 0-2 thanks to the recent play by Kirk Cousins and the defense. The Redskins could be without Jordan Reed who was placed on the concussion protocol.

Pick: Eagles

Browns @ Titans: The Titans offensive line dominated last week against a good Miami front and will look to have the same success against the Browns and their lack of play makers on defense.

Pick: Titans

Ravens @ Giants: The Ravens are 2-1 vs the Giants since their Super Bowl victory over Big Blue. We'll see if New York's multi-million dollar defense can get after the quarterback after failing to do so last week. The Giants, thanks to the help of their receivers, will smile again.

Pick: Giants

Panthers @ Saints: A third string running back ran all over the Panthers on Monday causing more concern for their defense. Another big concern is if Derek Anderson has to make the start again if Cam Newton can't play. With the bye week ahead, Ron Rivera and Carolina will look to make some adjustments and come away with the win. They will look for the pause button and think about how they can turn the season around.

Pick: Panthers

Jaguars @ Bears: The key for this game is the success of the run game for the Jaguars. They are averaging 75.3 rushing yards per game (third lowest) and Jordan Howard has played well running the ball for the Bears. Chicago' defense couldn't maintain their grasp at the end last week vs the Colts. It will be different when Blake Bortles visits Soldier Field. Alshon Jeffery will make quick work of Jacksonville's Jalen Ramsey.

Pick: Bears

Rams @ Lions: A good win last week that should spark Detroit for the rest of the season. The Rams will look to have better success defending the run as they face Detroit's Theo Riddick and possibly Justin Forsett, who was added to the team on Tuesday. Maybe they won't scare Los Angeles, but the Lions and Matthew Stafford can put up points; which is something the Rams have been lacking in 2016.

Pick: Lions

Steelers @ Dolphins: At 180 attempts, no other team is seeing their opponent run the ball at them more than the Miami Dolphins. The Pittsburgh Steelers have a plethora of weapons to defend. South Beach will have a tough day ahead.

Pick: Steelers

Bengals @ Patriots: We're on to Cincinnati. The Patriots are going to run LeGarrette Blount for as much as they can on Sunday. This won't be fun for the Bengals after the way they defended the run against the Cowboys last week. Matt Patricia will come up with a game plan for the New England defense to get to Andy Dalton. The Bengals have allowed the second most sacks in the league.

Pick: Patriots

Chiefs @ Raiders: Whoever Chiefs defensive stud Marcus Peters covers between Michael Crabtree or Amari Cooper will be a fun thing to watch. The Raiders continue to ride on the passing offense and they've gotten this far with it. The issues on defense with Oakland is still apparent.

Pick: Chiefs

Falcons @ Seahawks: The Seahawks are coming off their bye week with the hope that their offensive line can neutralize Atlanta's pass rush. This could be the week wear Russell Wilson gets on a roll against the Falcons secondary.

Pick: Seahawks

Cowboys @ Packers: With the Cowboys bye next week, the Tony Romo dilemma will get more attention then it already has once this game is over. The Packers and their lead leaguing run defense will go up against the Cowboys and their 155.2 yd/game rushing offense. As well as the Dallas defensive line has played last week, the Packers offensive line was equally as impressive if not better.

Pick: Packers

Colts @ Texans: Houston still sits at the top of the AFC South at 3-2. It almost sounds like they haven't won a game and having buyers remorse with Brock Osweiler. They were 1-13 on third down conversions and amassed one touchdown in last weeks loss. The Texans should have a better performance against the Colts. Andrew Luck will have another late-in-game touchdown pass to keep the game close.

Pick: Texans

Jets @ Cardinals: Monday Night Football. Todd Bowles vs. the Cardinals where he served as Defensive Coordinator for two seasons before becoming the Jets head man. The running game and defensive effort last week for Arizona was the big deciding factor for them to get the win. If Carson Palmer gets the nod to play, the receivers should get some more opportunities to score.

Pick: Cardinals

2016 Record: 44-33

Last Week: 7-7


Who has the best chance to win their game on the road?
