Week 6 NFL Matchup Predictions

Week 6 Matchup Predictions

10/11/12 in NFL   |   Matthew_Shovlin   |   735 respect

Last week's games certainly saw some interesting results, including the Rams pulverizing the undefeated Cardinals, rookie Andrew Luck topping the reigning MVP, and the Seahawks finally getting a win on the road. However, I still managed to finally put two solid weeks together, going 10-4 with my Week 5 picks (44-29 on the season). Here's the scoop for Week 6:

October 7, 2012; Pittsburgh, PA, USA; Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (7) passes against the Philadelphia Eagles during the second quarter at Heinz Field. Mandatory Credit: Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRESteelers @ Titans: The Titans are the first team since 1954 to give up 30+ points in each of their first five games. On top of that, Ben Roethlisberger is off to one of the best starts of his career, despite the 2-2 record. Chris Johnson has one non-miserable game to his credit this season, and he should continue his misery against the Steelers defense. James Harrison played every snap in last week's return from injury, and he'll be ready to unleash after a full week of practice.

Steelers win 34-20.

Bengals @ Browns: The Browns may be 0-5, but they're not as bad as they seem. Three of their losses where one-score games, and one was decided by ten points. Two of the Bengals three wins were one score games. One of those wins was a 34-27 victory over the Browns. With Joe Haden returning from suspension to shadow AJ Green, the Bengals will have a harder time finding the endzone.

Browns win 28-24.

Rams @ Dolphins: In the Dolphins' past four games, they are 2-2 with both losses coming at the hands of overtime field goals. They now return home to a crowd that is more excited about their team than they've been in years, and they'll face a very solid Rams team that just handed the Cardinals their first loss of the season. However, the annihilation of Kevin Kolb last week was more about a poor Cardinals offensive line than a great Rams pass rush, as the Rams only had six sacks in the previous four games. The Dolphins have only allowed ten sacks through five games, so the Rams won't be able to control the game with their front four this week.

Dolphins win 27-20.

Colts @ Jets: The Jets are coming off of a pretty impressive loss to the Texans - a game that most thought would be a blowout. However, the Colts are coming off of an even more impressive win over the Packers. The Colts have the obvious quarterback advantage with Andrew Luck, and the Jets don't even have a defensive advantage these days.

Colts win 24-20.
