« : abril 08, 2023, 04:14:23 am »
It's Steelers-Bengals Week, y'all. Recent history favors , which has won the last six meetings, but Cincinnati is playing some of its best football in several years. And if the find a way to win on Sunday afternoon, they'll move to 5-1, their best start since 2015, when they bolted to an 8-0 start. A win will also put them three games up on the , whose playoff hopes will be immeasurably more difficult should they fall to 2-3-1.  Britton Colquitt Jersey In other games, will not be intimated by the or Gillette Stadium, the will win two games in a row for the first time since 2014, and the will move to 4-1. We'll talk about all Week 6 games in our picks below. LAST WEEK: 9-6OVERALL RECORD: 45-31-2Pittsburgh at CincinnatiLine: Bengals -2.5 More on the NFL The Bengals have a case for being one of the best teams in football. They look a lot like the 2015 team that was poised to win its first playoff game in the Marvin Lewis era and then went down with a late-season thumb injury. The 2017 version has Dalton again playing well, thanks to an improved offensive line, and playmakers A.J. Green, and . And returns just in time to face a Steelers team he has terrorized over the years. That said, Pittsburgh leads the all-time series 62-35, has won the last six matchups, and nine of the last 10. They're also coming off their best game of the season, demolishing the , 41-17, and sacking six times. If the Steelers defense plays like that in Cincinnati, they'll be tough to beat. Unfortunately, that Falcons game was the aberration; the Steelers' D has been regularly torched over the first month of the season and the Bengals are certainly capable of running up the score. But , who has been both great and hard to watch this season, looked sharp last Sunday and , who has had a quiet start to 2018, scored two touchdowns and surpa sed 100 receiving yards for the first time.  Nick Chubb Jersey On paper, the Bengals are the better team but until they prove they're mentally tougher than the Steelers, Pittsburgh remains the favorite.Pick:Steelers 41, Bengals 38  Philadelphia at N.Y. Line: Eagles -3Neither team has played well this season though it's fair to say few teams have performed as poorly as the Giants through the first five weeks. After dominating for much of 2017, the ' offensive line has been a surprising liability thus far, which hasn't helped ease his way back into the lineup after recovering from ACL surgery. In fact, the offense has sputtered to below replacement-level and the team announced this week that is done for the season after tearing his ACL. That said, Philadelphia is still better than the a semblage of players unironically referring to themselves as Giants. Hours before last Sunday's lo s to the , Jr. said publicly what everyone was thinking: at 37 may not be the answer at quarterback and the team might want to start making contingency plans. Unfortunately, the Giants didn't draft a quarterback with the No. 2 pick last spring but all signs point to them having another selection near the top of the 2019 draft . But with no immediate relief in site, New York drops its fifth game of the season while Philly gets to .500. Pick:Eagles 24, Giants 13 Arizona at MinnesotaLine: Vikings -10.5If first-year coach Steve Wilks has a plan, it's not obvious to us. He continues to misuse , refuses to play former first-round pick , and he waited until the final two minutes of a close Week 3 game against the Bears to give rookie quarterback his first regular-season action. Taken together, the are 1-4, the lone win coming Sunday against a team ravaged by injuries. The , meanwhile, appear to be finding their form. After tying the (in a game they should've lost) and then getting trounced at home by the , Minnesota bounced back with a road victory over the Eagles. looked worth every penny of his $85 million guaranteed deal, completing all manner of contested throws for 301 yards and a 109.6  Greedy Williams Jersey pa ser rating. Unle s the Cards can replicate what the Bills did in Week 3, they'll likely head back to Arizona with lo s No. 5.Pick:Vikings 30, Cardinals 12Carolina at WashingtonLine: Redskins -1Before the season we suggested that might be a dark-horse candidate for MVP honors. After was lost for the season to injury we dropped it because if we learned anything from last year's team it's that a one-dimensional offense isn't feasible. But has been surprisingly good and through three weeks, Smith efficiently helped the to a 2-1 record. But after the bye, he had his "hold my beer" outing, and had one of his worst performances in recent memory.     When you have a makeable 4th  Austin Seibert Jersey and 2, step 1 should be to voluntarily run 11 yards back toward your own end zone. Then step 2 is decide which DB to throw the interception to.  Warren Sharp (@SharpFootball)  Carolina is 3-1, and just beat the Giants, though they needed a 63-yard field goal late in the game to do it. Washington is a better team than New York but you wonder if the drubbing will fester, exposing other i sues causing the whole thing to unravel by Halloween. Pick:Panthers 28, Redskins 24Chicago at MiamiLine: Bears -3Through three weeks, the were not only 3-0 but they were the ' s second-best team, according to Football Outsiders' metrics, ahead of the and behind only the . Then they were embarra sed by the Patriots. And last week they went to Cincinnati, where they had a 17-point lead late in the third quarter only to get outscored 27-0. The Bears are coming off their bye and at 3-1 are off to their best start since 2013, the last year they didn't have a losing record (they were 8-8). And while Chicago's defense has been dominant, the key to their sustained succe s lies with second-year quarterback . If  Baker Mayfield Jersey he can be efficient in the pocket, the Bears will be tough to beat. If he makes silly mistakes, the Bears will struggle.Pick:Bears 20, Miami 17 Indianapolis at N.Y. Line: Jets -2.5The have lost three straight but unlike a year ago, there are glimpses that things are slowly getting better. can, in fact, make all the throws, and the defense, which features rookie second-rounder , is a top-10 unit, according to Football Outsiders. The Jets the last week and while there's no way they rush for 323 yards again anytime soon, appears to have found a reliable deep threat in . Neither Indy nor New York is a playoff team in 2018 but they're two organizations headed in the right direction for 2019.   Pick:Jets 21, Colts 20Seattle at Oakland (in London)Line: Seattle -3We'd like to apologize to the ; before the season we pegged them as the NFC West's worst team, partly because they blew up the Legion of Boom, and partly because they refused to addre s the offensive line. But not only has this team been competitive, they're 2-3, almost beat the
