NFL Week 6 Predictions

by Robert Pfefferle, Online Sports Editor, Sandeep David, Online Opinions Editor, Charles Lott, Online Features Editor and Lauren Frost, Online Entertainment Editor
Bobby holds a slim lead over the pack, and Lauren is charging her way up from the bottom of the standings. With a number of big, decisive games this week, there should definitely be a shift in the standings coming soon.

Standings:
1. Bobby: 51-26
2. Sandeep: 50-27
3. Lauren: 48-29
4. Charlie: 44-33

Falcons at Saints
Bobby: Falcons
Sandeep: Falcons
Lauren: Falcons
Charlie: Falcons

Bobby says: The Falcons offense is loaded, and Matt Ryan is firing on all cylinders.
Sandeep says:
Lauren says: Falcons are playing great so far this season and with their powerful offense should overwhelm the Saints.
Charlie says: Devonta Freeman is a god. Even without Julio Jones, the Falcons have this one in the bag.

Redskins at Jets
Bobby: Jets
Sandeep: Redskins
Lauren: Redskins
Charlie: Jets

Bobby says: Kirk Cousins has struggled with interceptions all season, and the Darrelle Revis and the Jets defense wonít make things any easier.
Sandeep says: I'm going to go with the underdogs this time. The Redskins look like they have a chance in this one.
Lauren says: Sure, why not. I think the Skins have a good chance in this one of their running game plays well and their defense doesn't play awfully.
Charlie says: Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, and Chris Ivory are all playing the best football of their careers.

Cardinals at Steelers
Bobby: Cardinals
Sandeep: Cardinals
Lauren: Cardinals
Charlie: Cardinals

Bobby says: Cardinals should come out on top in an offensive battle.
Sandeep says: The Cardinals have been outstanding all season and are playing against a weakened Steelers offense.
Lauren says: Cardinals have a great offense and a lot of weapons they should win this game.
Charlie says: The Cardinals have three good running backs, two good wide receivers, and a great quarterback, plus theyíre playing against Michael Vick.

Chiefs at Vikings
Bobby: Vikings
Sandeep: Vikings
Lauren: Vikings
Charlie: Vikings

Bobby says: Adrian Peterson is in top form and will run right by the Kansas City defense.
Sandeep says: The Vikings have Adrian Peterson and the Chiefs have Knile Davis. Without Jamaal Charles, their offense is very weak.
Lauren says: Go Vikings!
Charlie says: The Chiefs arenít a serious offensive threat without Jamaal Charles, and Adrian Peterson will tear their defense apart.

Bengals at Bills
Bobby: Bengals
Sandeep: Bengals
Lauren: Bengals
Charlie: Bengals

Bobby says: Nothing can come in Cincinnatiís way right now. The offense is unstoppable.
Sandeep says: Andy Dalton has been playing the best football of his career and will take down the Bills defense.
Lauren says: Bengals are bad. In a good way.
Charlie says: Thereís no way an EJ Manuel lead offense can take down the dominant Bengals. Andy Dalton will have yet another great game.

Bears at Lions
Bobby: Bears
Sandeep: Bears
Lauren: Lions
Charlie: Bears

Bobby says: The Lions havenít won a game yet, and I think it could be fun to see them keep losing.
Sandeep says: Alshon Jeffrey is back this week. Though he will no doubt play a smaller role, it adds another threat to the Lions D.
Lauren says: Roar!
Charlie says: Matthew Stafford is so bad that he got benched the last game, and the Lions awful running game will not match up well against the Matt Forte.

Broncos at Browns
Bobby: Broncos
Sandeep: Broncos
Lauren: Broncos
Charlie: Browns

Bobby says: The Broncos offense is showing signs of weakness this season, yet they always seem to find a way to win.
Sandeep says: The Broncos are steadily gaining back my trust. This isn't just the Peyton Manning show anymore which actually is tougher for opponents.
Lauren says: Broncos take the Browns.
Charlie says: The undefeated Broncos will fall to a very unexpected opponent - the Browns. McCown has been looking great through the last few games, and he actually has a lot of weapons at his disposal in Duke Johnson, Isaiah Crowell, and Travis Benjamin.

Texans at Jaguars
Bobby: Jaguars
Sandeep: Jaguars
Lauren: Texans
Charlie: Texans

Bobby says: Iíll take Jacksonville solely because theyíre at home.
Sandeep says: The Jaguars gave the Colts some trouble and will easily take down the Texans.
Lauren says: Texas does it big.
Charlie says: J.J. Watt will eat the Jaguars o-line, and the Arian Foster/Deandre Hopkins combo will be hard to counter with TJ Yeldon out.

Dolphins at Titans
Bobby: Titans
Sandeep: Dolphins
Lauren: Titans
Charlie: Dolphins

Bobby says: The Dolphins are having problems off the field. Nothing good will result on the field.
Sandeep says: I still believe in the Dolphins. They haven't lived up to expectations but I think they can pull off this win.
Lauren says: Go Titans Go!
Charlie says: The Dolphins have a new coach, who will hopefully do a better job of utilizing his many defensive weapons. The Titans have not impressed so far, and Suh will get his first sack of the season on Marcus Mariota.

Panthers at Seahawks
Bobby: Seahawks
Sandeep: Seahawks
Lauren: Panthers
Charlie: Seahawks

Bobby says: Itís time for the Seahawks to get their season moving, and they should against a very weak 4-0 team.
Sandeep says: Crazy stuff goes on in CenturyLink Field. The Seahawks will be able to pull off the win against the undefeated Panthers at home.
Lauren says: CAM NEWTON! Seriously though, I'm picking the Panthers for a huge upset this week but it will greatly depend on what Seahawk team comes to play. Plus I have to stay with my fantasy QB.
Charlie says: Playing in Seattle, the Seahawks are a different team. The Panthers only offensive weapon is Cam Newton, and he will be shut down by the Legion of Boom.

Chargers at Packers
Bobby: Packers
Sandeep: Packers
Lauren: Packers
Charlie: Packers

Bobby says: I cannot see the Packers losing a game anytime soon.
Sandeep says: The Chargers lost to the Roethlisberger-less Steelers. I don't see them beating Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.
Lauren says: The Packers have played phenomenally over the past few games and show no signs of letting up anytime soon.
Charlie says: This could be the comeback game Eddie Lacy fans have been waiting for. The packers could make this game embarrassing for the Chargers.

Ravens at 49ers
Bobby: 49ers
Sandeep: 49ers
Lauren: Ravens
Charlie: Ravens

Bobby says: Iíve given up on the Ravens. After a loss to the Browns at home last week, they donít stand a chance against a desperate 49ers team in San Francisco.
Sandeep says: Both teams are just playing laughably badly. Even with their inconsistent play, the 49ers can beat a Ravens team that lost to the Browns.
Lauren says: I still think the 49ers are a mess and even though the Ravens haven't played well they can still come away with this game.
Charlie says: Iíve gotta pick my Ravens, even playing away at San Francisco. Forsett, though working his way out of a minor injury, can run all over the 49ers defense.

Patriots at Colts
Bobby: Patriots
Sandeep: Colts
Lauren: Patriots
Charlie: Patriots

Bobby says: I really want to pick the Colts for the upset, but thereís no way it could happen. Indianapolis would have to execute almost perfectly on offense, and back it up on defense. No way Tom Brady lets that happen.
Sandeep says: I feel morally obligated to choose the Colts even though the Patriots beat us every time.
Lauren says: However much I want to root against the Pats their offense had been unstoppable and the Colts would have to play their best game of the season to win this game.
Charlie says: Chalk up another 50 points for the Patriots and another two touchdowns for Gronk. The Colts donít stand a chance in this Deflategate grudge match.

Giants at Eagles
Bobby: Eagles
Sandeep: Eagles
Lauren: Giants
Charlie: Eagles

Bobby says: Eagles have some momentum coming off the win over New Orleans. Theyíre at home and have a good opportunity to show how good of a team they really are.
Sandeep says: The Eagles have been clicking as a team and will show the critics that they will live up to preseason expectations.
Lauren says: The Giants can come away with a win here if Manning can play a decent game. It'll be close but the Giants come away with the win.
Charlie says: Eli Manning has an awful history against the Eagles and DeMarco Murray looks like he might be back. Add to that OBJís potential injury, and this will be a tough one for the Giants.
