Once again this season, the Baltimore Beatdown staff will pick the winners for each week’s slate of contests throughout the year. Results will be tracked throughout the year to see who is most accurate with their predictions.

Readers can participate by voting in the polls for each game below. Join in on the fun and chime in with your thoughts on every matchup!

Updated Standings:

  1. Vasilis, BB readers (56-21)
  2. Frank, Kyle (53-24)
  3. Spencer, Peter (52-25)
  4. Adrian (51-26)
  5. Dustin (49-28)
  6. Jakob (46-31)

Consensus Selections —

The staff was in agreement on the following matchups in Week 6:

Only five games were unanimously-picked this week, which represents a season-low. The staff likes the Colts and Chiefs to bounce back after losing their respective games against the Browns and Raiders in Week 5. Kansas City is favored by 3.5 points over the Bills, while Indianapolis is more than a touchdown-favorite against the Bengals.

Our writers were also in-unison on the Ravens continuing to roll against the Eagles on the road, the Dolphins picking up where they left off last week in a favorable matchup against the Jets, and the Rams defeating the 49ers in a divisional showdown.

Baltimore and Miami are, like the Colts, favored by more than a touchdown, while the Rams are favored by just a shade over a field goal against their NFC West counterpart.


Lone Wolf Selections —

We have a trio of lone wolf picks on hand this week. First is Adrian, who was the only writer to pick the Falcons to defeat the Vikings. This will be Atlanta’s first game since cleaning house within the organization after firing both their head coach and general manager last week.

Frank likes the Buccaneers to prevail at home over the Packers in what might be the biggest matchup of the week. Green Bay is undefeated on the season and coming off a bye week, while Tampa Bay is looking to bounce back after a narrow defeat to the Bears in Week 5.

Finally, we have Vasilis rolling with the Cowboys over the Cardinals in primetime. Dallas will be fielding Andy Dalton at quarterback after losing Dak Prescott for the season to an ankle injury, but Vasilis evidently thinks Dalton and company will get the job done on MNF.
