NFL Week 6 picks: Mike Shanahan ironically honored by Broncos at halftime against Raiders

Long story short, here are my NFL picks for Week 6 action that marks the start of byes, including the 49ers’:

Buccaneers 28, Eagles 14: Tom Brady’s fingerprints – bad thumb and all – are all over this win, which comes against the last franchise to beat him in a Super Bowl, four seasons ago. Line: Bucs -7

Jaguars 26, Dolphins 24: The Jaguars return to London as Trevor Lawrence’s first win comes abroad (no Urban Meyer pun, intended). Line: Jaguars +3 1/2

Ravens 25, Chargers 24: Just when the Chargers were looking like everyone’s Super Bowl pick, Baltimore wins its fifth straight. Line: Chargers +3

Panthers 21, Vikings 20: The last time Minnesota won away from home – not counting Detroit, everyone’s home away from home – was last November 16 (at Chicago). Line: Panthers +1

Packers 31, Bears 17: Chicago’s defense allowed 34 points in an opening loss to the Rams, whose offense has some similarities as the Packers’. Line: Packers -4 1/2

Bengals 29, Lions 28: The Lions haven’t won … at home against the Bengals in 50 years. So, the Lions still haven’t won a game this season. Line: Lions +3 1/2

Colts 33, Texans 26: Indy wins the battle of 1-4 AFC South rivals and heads next for a Sunday night date with the 49ers at Levi’s Stadium. Line: Texans +9 1/2

Rams 31, Giants 16: The injury-laden Giants can’t keep pace with a Rams offense that averages a NFL-best 6.7 yards per play with a league-low four sacks overall. Line: Rams -9 1/2

Chiefs 28, Washington 23: Patrick Mahomes leads the NFL with 16 touchdown passes. Washington’s underachieving defense has allowed four touchdown passes for three games straight. Line: Washington +7

Browns 23, Cardinals 21: Arizona bids farewell to the NFL’s last undefeated record, and does so without center Rodney Hudson and tight end Maxx Williams, who got hurt in Sunday’s win over the 49ers. Line: Cardinals +3

Broncos 27, Raiders 26: With the Raiders in turmoil after Jon Gruden’s resignation, another of their former coaches, Mike Shanahan, will be honored at halftime for going in the Broncos’ Ring of Fame. Line: Raiders +3 1/2

Patriots 23, Cowboys 21: Mac Jones is smart enough not to add to Trevon Diggs’ league-high six interceptions. Line: Patriots +3 1/2

Steelers 23, Seahawks 17: It’s Seattle’s first game since 2011 without Russell Wilson – something that finally make MVP voters take notice. Line: Steelers -5

Bills 27, Titans 24: Josh Allen improves to 3-0 on “Monday Night Football,” having thrown for 695 yards with eight touchdowns and no interceptions in his previous two. Line: Titans +5 1/2
