Don’s NFL Picks | Week 6

Don’s NFL Picks | Week 6

I hope ya’ll are taking notes. Because I shouldn’t be the only one printing money with these picks week-to-week. Dean again applied the pressure by telling some drunk random that he should write about his NFL picks, because I could use the competition. Well drunk random, be careful what you ask for. Because once again when the pressures on, that’s when Don shines. And yes I just referred to myself in the third person.

As I put down more turkey and raspberry pie then I probably should have. I also watched myself go 10-4 on the week. Technically I should have been 13-1. But the Cowboys and Rams both shit the bed on me late in the fourth quarter, and the Steelers didn’t realize they had a gimme game with the Jaguars last week. But believe me when I tell you that it will not stop me from gloating my genious. So let’s talk about where I missed last week.

Lions – Too little too late

There’s something about the 4th quarter that brings life to the Lions. The Panthers were winning 27-10 going into the 4th, when Detroit came back to make it a game. They scored 14 points to make it a 27-24 nail biter. But ultimately came up short. Detroit proved that they’re a solid tier-two squad, but have too many holes to beat the better teams in the NFL.

Steelers are notorious for losing to bad teams

This is a game that you kick yourself in the lower britches over. The Steelers are notorious for losing to bad teams. But how are you supposed to pick the Jaguars over the Steelers, and be taken seriously? The answer is you don’t. It didn’t help that Big Ben pretty much gave them the game by throwing five interceptions. They should have taken the gimme game when they had it. Because this week will be a tough one for them, as they play Kansas City at home.

Rams and Cowboys disappoint

Much like your sex life the Rams and Cowboys started off strong, but ultimately finished with disappointment. Jared Goff threw two interceptions, while Dallas allowed Aaron Rodgers to do what Aaron Rodgers does, lead the Packers to a late 4th quarter win. Good news for the Rams though. They’re 3-2, and playing the not-as-good-as-they-look Jaguars. As for the Cowboys, they’re gonna have an extra week to think about their 2-3 record.

Games to Watch

Eagles vs. Panthers

This is a [email protected]#%ing game. Both teams are 4-1. Both teams have had really good performances in back-to-back weeks. And we’ve got the third best offence (Philadelphia), against the third best defence (Carolina). My gut wants to go Eagles, because I truly think they’re the better team. But my rule is that when you’re torn with a pick, you always go with the home team. So I’m reluctantly taking the Panthers at home.

Rams vs. Jaguars

Who would’ve thought this would be a game to watch? But there are a lot of locks this week, so if you’re looking for a competitive game, tune in. Both seem to be the top of the tier-two teams in the league. And both have been surprisingly good. One of these teams are moving to 3-3, while the other moves to 4-2. And much like the Eagles vs. Panthers, I’m reluctantly taking the home team.

Steelers vs. Chiefs

The Steelers are better than the shit performance they had against the Jaguars last week. They’re 3-2, and still have Le’Veon Bell & Antonio Brown. Unfortunately they’re playing the undefeated Chiefs, led by the underrated Alex Smith. Not only does Kansas City dominate all four quarters, but they get better late in the 4th quarter. Through five games, Kareem Hunt has 609 rushing yards, 166 receiving yards, and six total touchdowns. The game will be competitive, but the Chiefs get the W at home.

Chargers vs. Raiders

The Raiders get Derek Carr back, and they’re at home. The Chargers have put points on the board, but have also found ways to lose games. The only reason they beat the winless Giants last week was because New York lost two receivers, including Odell Beckham Jr. If Carr was still out, this would be an easy pick for the Chargers. But with Carr back in the lineup, I’m taking the home team to walk away with the W.
