NFL Betting: Week 6 Roundup

Week 6 in the NFL treated us to some wild finishes and some ugly injuries.

Let’s review Sunday’s action.


It looks like Week 6 will be remembered as the “week of carnage” when 2010 is finished. DeSean Jackson, Antonio Gates, Josh Cribbs and Joseph Addai all went down. But football games also happened yesterday. Let’s sort through the wreckage.

Eagles 31, Falcons 17

Jackson’s vicious concussion overshadowed another surprisingly strong effort from Kevin Kolb. He looked so good – throwing for 326 yards and three scores – that a quarterback controversy could be brewing in Philly yet again. Kolb may start once more in Week 7. If he delivers, Andy Reid could have a tough decision to make during the Eagles’ bye.

Steelers 28, Browns 10

In his return from suspension, Ben Roethlisberger showed a bit of rust early on but shook it off to finish with three touchdown passes. Now that the Steelers’ offense is back in high gear, they look like legit Super Bowl contenders again. Another interesting story from this game: Colt McCoy was surprisingly competent in his first NFL start. He probably earned another one.

Seahawks 23, Bears 20

In his return from the nine-sack game in which the Giants concussed him, Jay Cutler ate six sacks against the Seahawks. That’s 15 in his last six quarters. If this keeps up, Cutler won’t last the year and offensive co-ordinator Mike Martz may be out of work next winter.

Dolphins 23, Packers 20 (OT)

The Packers’ injuries’ cost them a winnable home game against Miami. No Clay Matthews to pressure Cha Henne; no Jermichael Finley over the middle; no Ryan Grant to move the chains; no Nick Barnett and Morgan Burnett, either. Suddenly, the NFC North isn’t a lock for Green Bay anymore. Next week’s battle with the Vikings is huge.

Giants 28, Lions 20

Shaun Hill’s solid quarterbacking had Lions fans wondering if Matt Stafford would get his job back once he was healthy. But it’s a moot point now; after a date with the Giants’ second-ranked pass defense, Hill is out for the season with a broken arm. Stafford will get his chance again.

Saints 31, Buccaneers 6

It was only a matter of time before (a) the Saints’ snapped out of their funk and (b) the Buccaneers crashed back to Earth. Expect more wins for New Orleans and more losses for Tampa going forward.

Rams 20, Chargers 17

Was this game more about the Rams being legit or the Chargers just underachieving again? The holes on San Diego’s offensive line may finally be biting them. They arrived in St. Louis with the NFL’s top-ranked passing attack but Phil Rivers left with a ho-hum 249 passing yards and took seven sacks. Left tackle Marcus McNeill’s return should help but, as we saw Sunday, he needs to get into game shape.

Texans 35, Chiefs 31

The Chiefs are improved, but not that improved. Eventually, some offense was due to explode on them. The high-octane Texans went off for 21 fourth quarter points to steal a wild one from K.C. Maybe Matt Schaub is fine after all; he threw for 300-plus yards and two scores.

Patriots 23, Ravens 20 (OT)

One of Sunday’s most interesting stories: Deion Branch returning to New England and not missing a beat with Tom Brady. He caught nine passes for 98 yards and a touchdown. As he and Brady suggested after the game, it was like Branch never left.

49ers 17, Raiders 9

At least the 49ers can count on Frank Gore, who ran for 149 yards and ripped off a 64-yard run. Mike Singletary lives to see another day with San Francisco finally winning its first game of 2010. The crazy part is that the 49ers aren’t necessarily out of it; they still have five more divisional games to play in the wide-open NFC West.

Jets 24, Broncos 20

Kyle Orton was another fast starter who crashed back to Earth in Week 6. Against the deadly Jets defense, he completed just 14 of 34 passes for 209 yards and lost a crucial fumble with Denver trying to win the game on the final drive. LaDainian Tomlinson remains on cloud nine for New York, though; he scored two more touchdowns.

Vikings 24, Cowboys 21

Arguably, there was no more important game than this one in Week 6, as the supposed Super Bowl contender Cowboys and Vikings both desperately needed a win. The Vikings vaulted themselves back into the NFC North race whereas the Cowboys fell to 1-4. How does Wade Phillips still have a job?

Colts 27, Redskins 24

The Colts did a great job taking what Washington gave them in the Sunday nighter. Peyton Manning had a good night but the Colts didn’t force the issue, deferring to the running game when the time was right. They wound up with more than double their season average on the ground, though it cost them Joseph Addai (shoulder) again.
