NFL: Week Six Game by Game Predictions
The 2019 NFL Season is upon us. The staff at IroniqMedia is dedicated to bringing you the utmost coverage of the NFL every season. This year we are going to bring you a new weekly picks feature. Staff members will pick the games each week and give you a reason behind their pick. Therefore, without further ado, here are the picks for week six.
Anthony Fiuza – Staff Writer
New York Giants vs New England Patriots: Daniel Jones looks good so far, but he will face a buzz saw in the Pats’ defense.
Pats win big
Carolina Panthers vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers: I don’t trust Jameis Winston to go to London and play well against Carolina’s defense.
Give me the Panthers
New Orleans Saints vs Jacksonville Jaguars: It’s been crazy to see how good the Saints have been offensively since Drew Brees went down. I don’t see MInshw Mania ruining the Saints flow.
Saints win their fourth straight game.
Washington Redskins vs Miami Dolphins: I know the Skins are a mess and just fired head coach Jay Gruden, but I think they step up against Josh Rosen and the Phins.
Skins get their first win.
Cincinnati Bengals vs Baltimore Ravens: Joe Mixon and the Cincy rushing attack won’t have an easy day versus Baltimore and that will be the difference.
Ravens win again.
Philadelphia Eagles vs Minnesota Vikings: Despite Kirk Cousins looking pedestrian this season, Minnie is at home and is ready for a defensive showdown against Philly.
Vikings get a big home win.
Tennessee Titans vs Denver Broncos: Titans can’t score consistently and have to face a secondary that will slow down the progress of Marcus Mariota.
New York Jets vs Dallas Cowboys: Dallas has one of the more complete teams in the NFL and after losing two straight weeks, they’ll want to take their anger out on somebody.
Boys top Jets.
San Francisco 49ers vs Los Angeles Rams: Jimmy G has got some help from his defense throughout the season, but if this contest is a shootout I don’t trust him to light up the scoreboard.
Houston Texans vs Kansas City Chiefs: One of the tougher games to pick, but the Chiefs want to rebound at home after a clunker versus Indy last week.
KC grabs the win.
Seahawks win a close one.
Falcons get a rare victory.
Pittsburgh Steelers vs Los Angeles Chargers: Until Pittsburgh gets better offensive production from their running game, they can’t be picked to win right now. Philip Rivers has one of his better games. Expect LA’s tight ends to play well.
Detroit Lions vs Green Bay Packers: Aaron Rodgers is too dangerous and will throw for a few touchdowns in this game. I like Matthew Stafford‘s play so far, but Detroit won’t give him enough protection.
Pack gets the win.

Michael Bolesta – Staff Writer
New York Giants at New England
> New England – Minnesota was able to get pressure on Daniel Jones Sunday. The Giants historically get up against their foes from Foxboro in this quadrennial matchup, but the Patriots are not dealing with Eli Manning, so it should be a two to three score victory on Thursday.
Carolina vs. Tampa Bay in London
> Carolina – I expect Tampa Bay to make sure Christian McCaffery gets bottled up and does not beat them but Carolina knows that they let one get away in Week 2, so the series ends in a split.
Philadelphia at Minnesota
> Minnesota – in the first meeting at U.S. Bank Stadium, the Vikings pressure Carson Wentz and get a big game from Dalvin Cook. Minnesota plays very well at home, so I expect that trend will continue.
Washington at Miami
> Washington – before the expiration of Jay Gruden’s head coaching status, I thought Washington competed well against New England. Colt McCoy has experience in this league, but for some reason, I think Dwayne Haskins will be called into the game at some point. He does just enough to get the team their first win.
Houston at Kansas City
> Kansas City – Houston has a lot of talent on both sides of the ball, but in the big games they have come up short. I think Patrick Mahomes and DeShaun Watson play great, but the Chiefs defense plays better this week.
New Orleans at Jacksonville
> New Orleans – Alvin Kamara has a great performance, and the Saints continue to march on for another win.
Cincinnati at Baltimore
> Baltimore – after a hard-fought win in Pittsburgh, the Ravens will look convincing from start to finish on Sunday afternoon.
San Francisco at Los Angeles Rams
> San Francisco – Jimmy Garopollo and George Kittle will be a frequent connection at the Los Angeles Coliseum. San Francisco wins a shootout.
Atlanta at Arizona
> Arizona – the Cardinals will still go through their growing pains this season. Atlanta has not looked good of late, so I will take the home team.
Dallas at New York Jets
> Dallas – Ezekiel Elliott will play well, even against the Jets defensive front. The Cowboys do what is necessary. They pull away after a slow start.
Tennessee at Denver
> Denver – the Broncos offensive line will not have it easy, but I think the Titans defense will tire out in the Mile High altitude. Denver builds on their victory last week in Los Angeles.
Pittsburgh at Los Angeles Chargers
> Los Angeles Chargers – Pittsburgh keeps this one close, but the Chargers will not be convincing, but they will have a play or two in the punt and kick return game that will set up a touchdown. It will silence the traveling Steelers supporters at what may feel like Heinz Field prior to kickoff.
Detroit at Green Bay
> Detroit – I will go with this game as my upset. I think the Packers had everything go right in Arlington, Texas. I think the Lions defense come up with some important red zone stops as the Eagles did a couple of Thursday nights ago.
Sean Naylor – Editor in Chief
Giants at Patriots
The Giants are short-handed and that is not a good thing against the NFL’s best defense.
Redskins at Dolphins
Redskins are under a new regime for the rest of the NFL season. Count this as a win.
Jaguars at Saints
Teddy B is hot as are the Saints. Jags keep it close early.
Bengals at Ravens
Lamar Jackson has another big game. It will be close for a quarter or so.
Falcons at Cardinals
The Falcons are struggling. Kyler Murray gets win number 2.
Panthers at Buccaneers
The Bucs O-Line is colander. That leads to Jameis Winston struggling.
Eagles at Vikings
This game is going to be closer than people think. The Vikings defense will win it.
Cowboys at Jets
Jets get Darnold back and while that will help, the Cowboys are a better NFL team.
Steelers at Chargers
These two teams always play each other tough. Nonetheless, Steelers are on QB #3. Take the visitors
Titans at Broncos
Broncos playing with motivation after an NFL week 5 win. They are putting Pat Bowlen and Champ Bailey in the Ring of Fame.
Browns at Seahawks
The Browns are who we thought they were. Not even close
Texans at Chiefs
Chiefs got a wakeup call. However, Texans are hot.
Lions at Packers
Good Ol’ Fashion Black and Blue division matchup. Aaron Rodgers is playing good football.
