I did a little better last week on my picks but I still am lagging behind in the leaderboard so here is hoping that week 7 will be a lucky one for me.

Here are some key matchups this week and my picks in them.

Bye week: New Orleans, Oakland

Dallas at Philadelphia - (Dallas leads series 61-47) Dallas rolls into Philly off an impressive win over Washington last week.  They have momentum on their side but Philly is at home and this is a division matchup so throw out any givens in this game and as always I will go on the side of Dallas.

Houston at Kansas City - (Houston leads series 3-2) Houston has a problem and it is their offense that has not put up any good numbers since the first 2 weeks of the season and now they are down their starting QB.  Houston comes into Kansas City while they are on an unbeaten streak that KC has not seen in years or even decades.  This one is actually a no-brainer and I will go with KC who will go 7-0 after this week.

Denver at Indianapolis - (Denver leads series 11-10) This is the Sunday Night Game and is also the game everyone had circled when the schedule came out in April.  Peyton Manning's homecoming to Indy in a different horses outfit and it will be everything it is meant to be but I do believe the emotions will be secondary and Denver will win this one, possibly only by a slim margin.
