Surging Rams To Run Over The Struggling 49ers
The NFL heads into Week 6 with some teams surging, others stumbling and of course the Jets still being, well, the Jets.
Here are my picks this week’s games, with confidence points and an analysis of my predictions.

Chicago at Carolina. No logic to this pick. I actually think the Panthers will win because they have a better offense but the Bears keep confounding me and a Bears friend is harassing me to finally pick his team. The one week I did, they lost. To Indy!
Cincinnati at Indianapolis. Speaking of the Dolts – guess I’m still sore at them for beating the Bears. They sure haven’t been able to beat anybody else.
Detroit at Jacksonville. The Lions should roar loud in America’s largest city.
Atlanta at Minnesota. As I mentioned last week for the Houston game, teams tend to always win the week after their coach is fired.
Washington at New York Giants. The Giants showed some ability against Dallas and are playing strong for their coach. This week, they get the W.
Baltimore at Philadelphia. Just can’t get on the Carson Wentz bandwagon. The Birds nearly upset Pittsburgh last week but can’t keep pace with the Black Birds.
Cleveland at Pittsburgh. This one COULD be interesting. But still, it’s Cleveland.
Houston at Tennessee. With all its COVID-19 problems, it’s tough to pick the Titans, but the Texas are due for the post-coach-fired letdown.
Miami at Denver. What, signs of life from the Dolphins!? They do have a better offense than the Broncos, tho Jerry Jeudy could torch them deep.
NY Jets at LA Chargers. After two close calls, the Chargers have earned a breather.
Green Bay at Tampa Bay. Sorry Tom Brady, your OL needs more discipline.
LA Rams at San Francisco. Gee, think the Gold Diggers brought Jimmy Garoppolo back too soon? Meanwhile, could the Rams actually have a consistently-scoring offense? Looked that way last week but then again that was against that Washington team.
Kansas City at Buffalo (moved to Monday night). The true Bills showed themselves in being routed by the Titans.
Arizona at Dallas. There’s just no trust in the Cowboys, especially after losing Dak Prescott. That being stated, not a lot of confidence in the Cardinals, either.
