NFL picks Week 6: Take the Chargers over the Raiders

New, comments

Thursday Night Football is the Eagles and Panthers tonight. I am going with the upset and taking the Eagles. I don’t have a great reason why other than, after watching the Eagles, I know they’re really good. Carson Wentz is coming off a great game and that front of theirs will beat up on Cam Newton. This is the rare Thursday night game that’s actually good with two 4-1 teams.

There aren’t a ton of great games this week. The Chiefs and Steelers is obviously a good one for all of us and even nationally. It will have a lot of eyeballs as the late afternoon game.

The game other I’m most looking forward to (other than Steelers-Chiefs) is the Chargers and Raiders. It appears that the Raiders could get Derek Carr back this week, which is earlier than we thought. I picked the Chargers to win before knowing that Carr was possibly coming back but I’m sticking with the Chargers. The Raiders have not been playing as well as we thought they would this year. The Chargers will score on them.
