The injuries are mounting up for some teams, as most of the divisions across the league are tightening up, and some teams just keep on surprising. Here’s a quick overview of what to expect as the action continues in week 6 of the 2012 NFL season. Take a look at our complete collection of week 6 NFL picks, predictions and odds.
Pittsburgh -5 At Tennessee: The Steelers barely escaped with a win at home against the Eagles, but they’re still getting healthier and should win on the road in Tennessee.
Cincinnati -2.5 At Cleveland: Cincinnati bounces back from a close loss last weekend to beat their divisional and in-state rivals.
At NY Jets -3 Indianapolis: Can the Colts continue riding high after their win over Green Bay last weekend? Luck deals a death blow to Mark Sanchez here.
At Tampa Bay -3.5 Kansas City: Tampa Bay wins an ugly, close game as Kansas City continues to be inept on offense, even if their defense is showing life of revival.
At Atlanta -8.5 Oakland: Are the Falcons the class of the NFL? They’re definitely a better class than the Raiders. Take the Falcons at home, and they should cover the spread as well.
At Baltimore -3.5 Dallas: Dallas is coming off a bye week and scores an upset road victory against a Ravens team which has had a very daunting early schedule, and looks to be in need of a rest themselves.
At Philadelphia -5.5 Detroit: Things get worse for Michael Vick and company before they get better. The Lions score a surprising road victory over Philly to revive their own season.
At Miami -3.5 St. Louis: Both teams are playing good football right now. The Rams have the better defense though, and they get to Tannehill to get the win.
New England -3.5 At Seattle: Seattle’s home field advantage may be excellent, but New England is clicking right now and will keep rolling and putting up points in bunches.
At Arizona -4.5 Buffalo: The Bills are looking like one of the absolute worst teams in the league. The Cardinals have weaknesses, but Buffalo won’t exploit them. Take the Cardinals.
At Washington -2 Minnesota: Will RGIII be in the lineup? He may not want to be with that Vikings pass rush led by Jared Allen going after him. Vikings on the road.
At San Francisco -6 NY Giants: The 49ers and their troupe of ex-G-Men get the leg up in this NFC championship game rematch against a battered, but game, Giants team.
At Houston -5.5 Green Bay: Houston may be the better team right now, but the Packers and Aaron Rodgers make a stand here to show they’re still not out of title contention themselves.
At San Diego -3 Denver: Both teams are in need of a big win in this primetime rivalry game. Ultimately, Peyton gets the job done, to the dismay of Philip Rivers and company who continue to struggle getting over the hump.
