Week 6 in NFL picks is not off to a good start for the Kansas City Chiefs. There aren't many folks picking the Chiefs although if it's anything like last week we'll see at least a couple of people picking KC at some point.
Here's a round up of who's picking who in the Chiefs and Houston Texans game this weekend. We'll start with our blogging rivals, Battle Red Blog. Throw anymore picks you find into the comments and I'll add them.
I've discussed what needs to happen yesterday for a Houston win. I believe the Texans have the tools necessary to attack Kansas City's weak points. It's time to put my name on it. Texans win 23-17.
Chiefs - 0
Texans - 5
Chiefs - 1
Texans - 2
Chiefs - 0
Texans - 8
Chiefs 24 Texans 27
Pro Football Talk (H/T tomahawk44)
Rosenthal's pick: The Chiefs secondary is one of the few groups in the league that can confidently shut down the Texans passing attack. Brandon Flowers should make the Pro Bowl and Brandon Carr has seriously improved. The Texans secondary is one of the few groups that Matt Cassel can pass against. At least a little. Add it up, and you are going to have a lot of pissed off Texans fans Sunday afternoon.
Rosenthal's take: Chiefs 24, Texans 20.
