Week 6 NFL Picks: Good Straight-Up, Bad Against The Number

Once again, we're going to give you the short, short version of this week's National Football League picks. I'm already behind the 8-ball this week thanks to another misfire in the Thursday night match-up. . .I might just stop picking Thursday night games all together at this rate. (Not really, but I haven't gotten many of them right.)
