The "Thursday Night Football" paradox rears its head again in Week 6, for Adam Vinatieri Jersey  the second straight week.There are nota ton of compelling matchups this week  and that's not goodconsidering its just the second weekend of October  but the Eagles visiting the Panthers wasone of them. Problem is, of course,it wasThursday.Yet Thursday wasstill the best of the primetime meetings this week. The late-afternoon window is worthwhile, particularly Pittsburghgoing to unbeaten Kansas City. Thankfully, neither is on a short week.MORE: Week 6 NFL picks against the spreadWeek 6 NFL picks, predictions(All times Eastern)Miami Dolphins (2-2) at Atlanta Falcons (3-1)Sunday, 1 p.m., CBSJay Cutler escaped the bulk of the permanent wrath of Miami fans last week with that game-winning drive to beat an equally-inept Titans teamled by Matt Ca sel. The Dolphins now find out whether Chris Foerster, who put the offensive in offensive line coach, was integral enough to that unit to cause a drop-off with his absence. That they face the Falcons, coming off a bye and a bitter lo s to the Bills, should make it all moot.Prediction: Falcons, 33-10New England Patriots (3-2) at New York Jets (3-2)Sunday, 1 p.m., CBSNormally this would be the point that the Jets are sent plunging back to earth by their tormentors. The Patriots, however, are certifiably dreadful on defense right now (last in the NFL by a scandalous 50 yards a game). Josh McCown has done well against similarly bad defenses (the Browns, for example). Doing that and outselling Tom Brady, though, are separate challenges.Prediction: Patriots, 31-29Detroit Lions (3-2) at New Orleans Saints (2-2)Sunday, 1 p.m., FoxClaiming that the Lions' offense can get healthy against the Saints' defense is really just a saying in this case. Matthew Stafford is apparently actually injured. The Lions defense showed vulnerability against the Panthers, and while Drew Brees and this offense presents different challenges, the Lions unit has a lot to prove. The Lionsalso run the risk of letting the Packers run away from them in the NFC North.Prediction: Saints, 34-28Green Bay Packers (4-1) at Minnesota Vikings (3-2)Sunday, 1 p.m., FoxThe Vikings cant get right at quarterback, but to be fair, thats part of the package when you trade for Sam Bradford. (It feels like Teddy Bridgewater played for them barely more recently than Fran Tarkenton did.) This is not the unit right now that can get into a legit shootout with Aaron Rodgers and make him pull out the dramatics the way he did against the Cowboys. Too bad, because theres no reason to trust the Packers defense so far.Prediction: Packers, 34-21Chicago Bears (1-4) at Baltimore Ravens (3 Anthony Walker Jersey -2)Sunday, 1 p.m., CBSThe Ravens shouldn't consider themselves out of the woods yet, even after whipping the Raiders in Oakland, or even with the Bears coming to town. The big Mitchell Trubisky change only spotlighted how few offensive threats the Bears have. They dont have anyone the Ravens cant handle  which only means that the wildly inconsistent, vulnerable-in-spots Ravens had better eat while the eating's good.Prediction: Ravens, 23-13San Francisco 49ers (0-5) at Washington Redskins (2-2)Sunday, 1 p.m., FoxKyle Shanahanreturns to where he and his father once dueled Robert Griffin III (exactly what a team wants, of course). Their last four lo ses have been by a total of 11 points, including last weeks overtime defeat in Indianapolis. This is likely their fate this season: not close enough because their talent isnt anywhere close enough. Washington has coughed up two winnable games, to the Eagles and Chiefs, which isnt as encouraging as it sounds.Prediction: Washington, 27-21Cleveland Browns (0-5) at Houston Texans (2-3)Sunday, 1 p.m., CBSThere was no reason to believe that all of the Texans hopes would have to ride on a rookie quarterbacks backthanks toall that defense they brought back. But they were failing on that side even before they lost J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus last week. Somehow, it ended up being Deshaun Watson or nothing. They should get away  Colts Elite Men's Jersey Customized with it against the awful Browns, but not against too many others.Prediction: Texans, 29-10Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-2) at Arizona Cardinals (2-3)Sunday, 4:05 p.m., FoxThe Buccaneers' offense, with all its pieces back, still looks like a work in progre s. The Bucs will be very dangerous if they all get it together, but its anyones gue s when that will be. This week is a good chance  its still mildly stunning how completely the Eagles picked the Cardinals apart last week. Thats not on the mi sing David Johnson or the hit-and-mi s Carson Palmer. To be fair, though, if newly-arrived Adrian Peterson does a reasonable impre sion of his former self, the Cardinals' defense will benefit as much as the offense.Prediction: Buccaneers, 30-17Los Angeles Rams (3-2) at Jacksonville Jaguars (3-2)Sunday, 4:05 p.m., FoxThe Jaguars' defense has embarra sed a shocking number of quarterbacks so far this season, and they are capable of adding Jared Goff to that list. Then again, Goff is capable of coming within a dropped pa s in the end zone Colts Women's Custom Game Jersey  of beating a defensive juggernaut like Seattle. If his defense can keep Leonard Fournette in check  a big if  the Rams can bounce back after last week.Prediction: Rams, 26-16Pittsburgh Steelers (3-2) at Kansas City Chiefs (5-0)Sunday, 4:25 p.m., CBSQuite the last week-plus for Ben Roethlisberger, from lecturing Antonio Brown about composure and maturity after a blowout winto self-flagellation after his embarra sing performance in a blowout lo s. Some emotional equilibrium from the franchise player might come in handy, especially against an unbeaten team on a roll in every segment of the game.Prediction: Chiefs, 28-24Los Angeles Chargers (1-4) at Oakland Raiders (2-3)Sunday, 4:25 p.m., CBSDoes Derek Carr returning with broken bones in his back jump-start a stumbling Raiders team? Yes ... ifhe can play defense, too, and play better than he did in the two games before he got hurt. The Raiders are on a three-game skid on merit  every weakne s has been exposed, and theyre on the clock to patch it all up, fast. The Chargers didn't nece sarily convince anyone they're turning it around after barely edging the Giants, though.Prediction: Raiders, 24-17New York Giants (0-5) at Denver Broncos (3-1)Sunday, 8:30 p.m., NBCJust what the losing, beaten-up Giants need:a fresh Broncos defense coming off a bye. This matchup looked good on paper when they drew up the schedule. Not any more. The Giants are running out of wide receivers. The Broncos are going to pin their ears back against Eli Manning. Ouch, ouch, ouch.Prediction: Broncos, 31-6Indianapolis Colts (2-3) at Tenne see Titans (2-3)Monday, 8:30 p.m., ESPNThis also looked intriguing months ago  Andrew Luck vs. Marcus Mariota. Unle s Mariotas hamstring gets better very fast, itll be Jacoby Bri sett vs. Matt Ca sel, instead. The Colts are still closer to being the team that got blown out by the Seahawks in their last primetime appearancethan the team that beat the 49ers last week (after blowing a fourth-quarter lead). Ca sel, meanwhile  is Ca sel. Dont feel guilty about nodding off early.Prediction: Colts, 18-13Philadelphia Eagles (4-1) at Carolina Panthers (4-1)Thursday, 8:30 p.m., NBCThey're two of just six teams left with one or fewer lo ses. Bothquarterbacks are off to great starts (Carson Wentz, Cam Newton) and coming off of spectacular games. The Eagles third-ranked offense by yards faces the Panthers third-ranked defense by yards. Unfortunately, Eagles tackle Lane Johnson was in concu sion protocol as of Monday, and they have yet to figure out how to handle hisabsence.Prediction: Panthers, 28-23Bye weeks:Buffalo Bills, Quenton Nelson Jersey  Cincinnati Bengals, Dallas Cowboys, Seattle Seahawks
