Week 6 Information

Sunday Night: New England Patriots @ San Diego Chargers
Monday Night: New York Giants @ Cleveland Browns
Bye Week: Buffalo, Kansas City, Pittsburgh, Tennessee

The Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 6:

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
It seems like most of the players on both of these teams have favorable matchups this week. It will all come down to the Giants offense on MNF. Coach Thad will have a reason to stay up late and watch again. Coach Brew will be asleep before kickoff.

Baltimorons (-1) vs. Rough Riders
It's a little difficult to predict a winner on Thursday when neither coach is going to set their lineup before Sunday morning. I'll have to go with the team that has J.Cutler and T.O. already active...

ray ray haw (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
Both teams' QBs will be feasting on defenseless defenses this week, but the meatiest dish will come on Sunday night, when two players from each team will be active. It will all be over before Monday morning - but who will need the Pepto-Bismol?

Misfits, Inc (-1) vs. Marauders
Both of these teams are playing well coming into week 6, but that could change if Coach Hoss continues his recent laissez-faire management style. The Marauders could use a full complement of players and a little luck against the #1 team in the league.

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
SpiVi scored one point last Monday night to turn a loss into a tie. They will be looking for a win this week against the heavily injured 'Bums, who come into the week with a facial fracture, a strained elbow, and a couple of broken ribs. And that's just in the starting lineup.

And the game of the week...

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Renegades
This one will be decided by which two RBs Coach Sinkerbeam decides to start; we already know what T.Romo can do. And for the first time this year the Preds don't have an active player in either of the prime time games - they'll just have to wait and see if the Renegades can make a comeback.

Good luck this week.
