NFL Week 6 predictions and preview


The NFL season has been great so far and the games scheduled this week will be a treat for fans alike to watch. One game that looks very interesting is the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road going up against the New York Jets.

It’s a big surprise that Pittsburgh has not won a game yet this season and another shocker that the Jets actually have a good shot of making the playoffs.

The defense is keeping them in each game they play, where they are only allowing 299 yards per game.  Geno Smith seems to improve with each game and Rex Ryan has this team believing they can go a long way.

The next game that looks good is the St.Louis Rams taking on the Houston Texans. St.Louis has a good chance to steal a victory from a team that has lost three straight games.

Houston has their own issues at Quarterback with Matt Schaub on the brink of being benched. He has been horrible with him throwing six INTs in his last three games played.

The other game that will be good is the Monday night game between the Indianapolis Colts and San Diego Chargers. The Colts have stormed ahead to lead the AFC South on the strength of Andrew Luck and a defense that’s only giving up 15.8 points per game.

San Diego is great at moving at the football with them averaging more than 400 yards on offense, but has problems stopping opposing teams with them giving up almost 26 points per game.

One match up to watch this week is how the New England Patriots defense will fare against New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees. Brees has his team flying high and it will be tough game for New England on defense.

The second match up is can the Washington Redskins play some defense against a Dallas Cowboys team that was on a roll last week. Washington has allowed the most yards per game at 440.5 this season and you have to wonder if they can turn it around.

Another match up is how many points can we expect to see the Denver Broncos score against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Denver is scoring at will and could set some records on offense in this game.

The top performers of the week starts with Jimmy Graham for the Saints. He is unstoppable right now and could easily have 12 catches for 150 yards with two touchdowns.

The next player that will have a great game is Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy. He will have no problem running for more than 100 yards against the Baltimore Ravens.

The other player that’s going to have a superb game is Peyton Manning. Manning will put on a passing clinic with 400 passing yards and six passing TDs.
