NFL Picks Week 6: Back To Earth

New, comments

The best kept looking even better, while the worst continued to show how bad they truly were in Week 5. We now take at what Week 6 of the 2015 NFL season has in store.

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

The New Orleans Saints come fresh off a demoralizing loss in Philadelphia on Sunday, and now on short rest they host their arch-rivals from Atlanta.  To say the Saints face a severe disadvantage in this game would be an egregious understatement.  Atlanta's top-five offense against the worst defense in the NFL hardly seems competitive now does it?  The Saints will surely give it their all, but that may prove to be far from enough to pick up a home victory on Thursday Night against the hated Atlanta Falcons.  Now we take a look at that and the rest of the games in Week 6.

Last week I went 9-6
