Week 6 in the NFL could be a do or die moment for a couple of teams. Kansas City, Baltimore and Seattle either win this week or kiss their playoff hopes goodbye.
Kansas City travels to Minnesota desperate for a victory. They’ll likely be without RB Jamal Charles who suffered a knee injury in Week 5. Baltimore has to beat San Francisco on the road after dropping a home game to Cleveland in Week 5. Undefeated Carolina travels to Seattle. Seattle is in a must win situation after losing to Cincinnati on the road in their last.

NFL Week 6 Betting Cheat Sheet
Atlanta at New Orleans
New Orleans would like nothing more than to give Atlanta its first loss of the season. The Falcons stuck to their game plan in their last and beat Washington in overtime even though Matt Ryan threw 2 interceptions. Atlanta should win.
Washington at New York Jets
This will be a tough game between 2 teams with similar run first offenses and similar tough defenses. The Jets get the nod because QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has more experience than Washington QB Kirk Cousins.
Pick: New York Jets
Arizona at Pittsburgh
Arizona scores points like there’s no tomorrow. Since Big Ben isn’t likely to play, the Steelers might have a tough time beating the Arizona pass defense. But, Pittsburgh is tough to beat at home. Arizona falls.
Kansas City at Minnesota
The Chiefs face a tough defense on Sunday. Minnesota is turning into one of the better teams in the NFC. Expect the Vikings to end Kansas City’s hopes of a playoff run once and for all.
Houston at Jacksonville
Houston just doesn’t know how to win games any more. It looked like they were in it against the Colts. This could be a shootout, but the Jags will come out on top.
Miami at Tennessee
This is a difficult game to call. Miami’s got all sorts of issue. But, sometimes when a coaching change is made, the team responds favorably. That probably won’t happen with Miami because DL Nadamukong Suh appears to have given up. It’s doubtful he’ll put too much effort into chasing down QB Marcus Mariota.
Carolina at Seattle
Carolina’s defense is slightly better than Seattle’s right now. The Seahawks melted versus the Bengals after running out to a 24 to 7 lead. The Panthers could upset Seattle, but the ‘Hawks know they have to win.
San Diego at Green Bay
Green bay hasn’t looked that great in their last couple of games. The offense isn’t playing as sharply as it was in the first month of the season. No matter. Facing a terrible Chargers’ secondary should change all of that.
Pick: Green Bay
Baltimore at San Francisco
The problem that San Francisco has in this game is that their defense isn’t likely to stop Baltimore’s offense from going crazy. Then again, the 49’ers have the much better rushing attack and they do get the Ravens at home.
New England at Indianapolis
The Colts have little chance of keeping New England from moving the ball at will in this matchup. The Patriots should win this one handily.
Pick: New England
New York Giants at Philadelphia
Yep, the Eagles destroyed New Orleans 39 to 17 at home in Week 5. Don’t get too excited, Philly fans. The Giants aren’t the Saints. New York wins.
Pick: New York Giants
