Stathead Matt's Week 6 NFL picks

I have got to make it quick today. Hopefully these meat and potatoes picks will lift me back up from last week's debauchery.

Also, Cowboys-Vikings. This is the closest we will get as a modern civilization to a gladiatorial bout. The loser is dead and the winner is severely injured but pleased to still be alive. Wade Philips is even living the All-Star fight scene from Gladiator, with Russell Crow holding a sword over his head and the Emperor giving the thumbs up for a split second just before bringing the fans to cheers by turning it down. If Wade Phillips loses this game and is still on the sidelines the following Sunday, then the Dallas/Fort Worth search and rescue team will have to divert all its efforts to finding the real Jerry Jones.

Last week - 6 of 14
Overall - 41 of 76
