NFL Picks Week 6: Rest For The Weary

New, comments

The Saints and Who Dat Nation had to struggle though an overtime thriller in Week 5. Now with the bye week upon us, there is still plenty to keep an eye on throughout the league in Week 6.

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The New Orleans Saints come into the bye week with a surprising 2-3 record. Fresh off of demolishing fending off Tampa in Week 5, the Saints will gladly take a week to rest their injured and regroup themselves.  With the Saints off the schedule this week, we focus on the the rest of the NFL schedule.

Last week I went: 10-5

I told you so: 49ers over Chiefs!

What do I know: Jets over Chargers?
