Week 6 NFL Picks — Oct. 14 (UPDATED!!)

This is the condensed version of picks for the NFL Week 6 game for Winners and Whiners between:

Kansas City Chiefs at New England Patriots:

There will also be an expanded selection of Sunday picks posted at some point after Thursday’s Eagles-Giants game and before the kickoff of Sunday’s early games.

Week 5 Review: Suck early, rally late. That’s the best way I can describe it. After splitting the expanded picks in the early games with the Panthers-Giants and Broncos-Jets (Note: I would like to sarcastically thank Ron Rivera for his play-calling that helped the Giants rally to cover in the second half after having that game in hand), I managed to lose every single-game pick for the early games (Also, a sarcastic thank you to Joe Flacco’s eyebrow for losing at Cleveland).

Then, there was a miraculous recovery in the late session, with every pick hitting except the Arizona-San Francisco game due to a touchdown with 1:29 left to send the game to the over. Accordingly, C.J. Beathard is off my Christmas card list. Onward to the picks!
