NFL - Week Six Preview
The New Orleans Saints will beat the Atlanta Falcons in the "Big Easy" this week (Thursday night game) and Carolina will fall to the Seattle Seahawks in the Great Northwest.
New England (at Indy), Green Bay (home vs. San Diego) and Denver (at Cleveland) should be safe for another week while the Cincinnati Bengals cannot take the Buffalo Bills lightly, considering the game is being played in Buffalo.
The Sunday Night Football Game between the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts may get ugly real quick if the Patriots try to roll it up on the Colts, the team that accused them of deflating the footballs last January in the AFC Championship Game which New England won, 45-7 to advance to the Super Bowl.
Patriots QB Tom Brady could go off for six or seven touchdown passes if the Colts don't get after him early in the game to let them know they are not having any of it.
Meanwhile, Indianapolis QB Andrew Luck is hopeful to play in the game after sitting out the last two games with injuries while watching reserve QB Matt Hasselbeck lead the team to consecutive victories.
All in all, it should be another exciting weekend around the NFL, and I am sure that NFL Red Zone will be looking forward to their biggest obsession . . . one score games all day long.
The following will offer a capsule style look at the games this week with the Heftyinfo predictions following.
Cincinnati (5-0) at Buffalo (3-2) - The Bills and Bengals both rallied back for a win last week.
Denver (5-0) at Cleveland (2-3) - The Browns believe they not only can be in every game, they actually believe they can also win every game. Not this week.
Chicago (2-3) at Detroit (0-5) - The Bears go into Motown to play the NFL's last winless team ... that will change.
Houston (1-4) at Jacksonville (1-4) - Who cares?
Kansas City (1-4) at Minnesota (2-2) - Take the Vikings.
Washington (2-3) at NY Jets (3-1) - This one could go down to the wire with two defensive minded teams going at it.
Arizona (4-1) at Pittsburgh (3-2) - The Steelers are riding high after a miraculous finish for a road win last week.
Miami (1-3) at Tennessee (1-3) - Whoever has the ball last could lose this game.
Carolina (4-0) at Seattle (2-3) - The 12th Man will be rocking after the 'Hawks let one get away on the road last weekend.
San Diego (2-3) at Green Bay (5-0) - Packers roll!
Baltimore (1-4) at San Francisco (1-4) - Two sorry ass football teams going at it here ... a far cry from 2012 season when they met in the Super Bowl.
New England (4-0) at Indianapolis (3-2) - The Colts need to keep it close.
NY Giants (3-2) at Philadelphia (2-3) - Believe it or not, if the Eagles win this game they will be tied for first place in the NFC East.
