Football fans, we are back again for the sixth installment of “Call Your Shot” where we will take a look every game, every week, and predict a winner. Buckle your seatbelts folks, here we go.
Philadelphia Eagles @ Carolina Panthers
Two hot teams are set to cross paths in Carolina. Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz set the world on fire last week, passing for three touchdowns in the first quarter. Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has been hot the past two weeks after a slow start. While both teams are entering this game on win streaks and playing well, I think the Eagles are the better team at the end of the day.
Eagles win 24-20
Chicago Bears @ Baltimore Ravens
The Bears take on the Ravens in Baltimore in week six. Mitch Trubisky had a shaky first start, struggling while surrounded with a lack of playmakers. The Ravens beat a Raiders team that was without Derek Carr, getting over .500 for the season. Trubisky and the Bears are yet to prove they can win, or even compete consistently, I like the Ravens in this one.
Ravens win 17-13
Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings
This matchup will come down to quarterback play, and Aaron Rodgers is the best in the business. Regardless of whether Sam Bradford or Case Keenum plays, I’m going with Green Bay here.
Packers win 24-13
San Francisco 49ers @ Washington Redskins
The Redskins are one of the best teams in the league thus far in my opinion. The 49ers clearly are not, yet to come away with a win this season. The Redskins are the better team and will likely dominate the 49ers defense.
Redskins win 31-10
Detroit Lions @ New Orleans Saints
The Detroit Lions take on the Saints in New Orleans in week six. The Lions have looked good this season, suffering two tough losses to NFC South teams. I think the Lions will get back on track against a weak Saints defense, I’m going with them this week.
Lions win 28-13
Miami Dolphins @ Atlanta Falcons
The Dolphins have looked awful this season, highlighted by poor quarterback play. The Falcons have played quite well, performing like they should be on their way back to the Super Bowl. I think the Falcons will win this one by a landslide.
Falcons win 34-10
Cleveland Browns @ Houston Texans
The Browns have been awful this season and the Texans look like a new team behind Deshaun Watson. Even without J.J. Watt and other key defensive players, I like Houston in this matchup. The Browns simply haven’t proved they are good enough to win, especially with their newfound quarterback controversy.
Texans win 23-14
New England Patriots @ New York Jets
The Patriots squeaked past the Buccaneers thanks to missed kicks by Tampa Bay. The Jets got past the Browns, on their way to being one of the biggest surprises of the early season. As much as I would love to see the shockwaves sent around the league by a Jets victory, it just isn’t likely. Tom Brady is hitting his stride and the Jets offense can’t outshoot him.
Patriots win 27-14
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Arizona Cardinals
The Buccaneers have struggled thus far this season, but are now in a better position for success with a new kicker. The Cardinals have nothing going their way, even after trading for Adrian Peterson this week. The Cardinals are also coming off a tough, blowout loss at the hands of the Eagles.
Buccaneers win 24-17
Los Angeles Rams @ Jacksonville Jaguars
The Rams are coming off a tough battle with the Seahawks. The Jaguars are coming off a dominant win over the Steelers. The Rams seemed to get all their turnovers out last week and the Jaguars seemed to force all the turnovers they could on Sunday. Given this and Aaron Donald’s dominance thus far, I like the Rams.
Rams win 23-21
Los Angeles Chargers @ Oakland Raiders
The Chargers finally got their first win of the season and will face a struggling Raiders team. I think this game will be closer than most people would have expected a few weeks ago, and I’m going with the Chargers in an upset.
Chargers win 17-13
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Kansas City Chiefs
The Steelers have not looked good this season and the Chiefs are the best team in football. That’s all I need to know for this one.
Chiefs win 34-21
New York Giants @ Denver Broncos
The Giants are set to face the Broncos in Denver. New York is still trying to land their first win of the season, while the Broncos have looked surprisingly strong. The Broncos are featuring one of the strongest defenses in the NFL and Giants are running low on receivers, that’s enough for me to go with the Broncos.
Broncos win 23-14
Indianapolis Colts @ Tennessee Titans
The Colts will still be without Andrew Luck and the Titans will likely get Marcus Mariota back. The quarterback matchup is all you need to know for this one, I like the Titans on Monday night.
Titans win 20-10
