We learned much in week 6, including that the Giants will likely continue to be their own worst enemy and that Steelers are a completely different animal without perennially injured QB Ben Roethlisberger. Let’s see what we learned and re-learned this week and offer up an early NFL pick before it gets any harder.

 

Week 6 Reminds Us How Close Some Elite Teams Are to Humility, Despair

NFL week 6 reminded us all how fragile the hopeful Success teams can be, with the Pittsburgh Steelers seeing QB Ben Roethlisberger (19/34, 2 INTs) go down with yet another Injury (left knee), forcing Pittsburgh (4-2 SU/ATS) to go with backup Landry Jones for a play against Miami at Hard Rock Stadium Sunday. The enigmatic Dolphins (2-4 SU/ATS) won outright as 7-point underdogs, 30-15, in a game that The Fish needed in the worst way.

 

The Bills Have Been Great Since Making Anthony Lynn Their Offensive Coordinator

The Buffalo Bills are now 4-0 SU/ATS since making former RB’s coach and assistant HC Anthony Lynn—a longtime assistant of HC Rex Ryan (12-9-1 ATS)—their offensive coordinator, scoring an average of 31.0 ppg compared to the 19.0 ppg in the first 2 games of the regular season—both losses and non-covers. On Sunday, the Bills rolled to an easy 45-16 win over the 49ers at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo (BUF -7½, BetDSI) as the Offense had 29 1st Downs, 491 yards Total Offense and a 35:11 Time of Possession in the win over San Francisco which lost its 5th in a row SU/ATS. So since Lynn was promoted, the Bills have been a different team with 3 of the 4 games going Over since he took the post over from Greg Roman.

 

Giants Turnover Plague/Differential Reveals A Team Not To Be Trusted, Bet On

The New York Giants might have escaped with a victory on Sunday at home over the Ravens (27-23), but Eli Manning threw 2 more interceptions and the G-Men lost another Fumble to put their TO Differential at -7—tied for 2nd worst in the NFL (10 Giveaways +3 Takeaways=). And who wants to bet on a team who gives away the ball so much? Luckily for Big Blue (3-3 SU, 2-3-1 ATS), they played the equally inept and offensively challenged Ravens (3-3 SU, 2-3-1 ATS), who failed to cover the 3½-point spread by ½ despite having 0 Turnovers and getting 3 of their own.

 

 

So the Giants and Ravens may both be 3-3, but both teams have consistent flaws and almost halfway through the season, it’s hard to see either team quickly correcting them.
