NFL 5 81 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 6 NFL matchups 31371327 Denver Broncos at San Diego Chargers (Monday, 8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN) Denver+Broncos+at+San+Diego+Chargers+%28Monday%2C+8%3A30+p.m.+ET%2C++ESPN%29 NFL

In a surprising head-to-head comparison, Peyton Manning (right) is a lowly 1-5 playing against Philip Rivers (left). Both like the national spotlight as Manning is 11-4 on Monday Night Football in his career while Rivers is 7-3. Based on these numbers, I anticipate a very smartly played game that will come down to a couple possessions in the final quarter. This could be a deciding factor in the race for the AFC West. Pick: Chargers

NFL 5 81 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 6 NFL matchups 31371326 Green Bay Packers at Houston Texans (Sunday, 8:20 p.m. ET, NBC) Green+Bay+Packers+at+Houston+Texans+%28Sunday%2C+8%3A20+p.m.+ET%2C+NBC%29 NFL

Aaron Rodgers (pictured) hasn’t been himself this season. The Packers are scoring 13 fewer points per game than last year and their turnover differential has gone from plus-24 to minus-1. Now the Packers will be without Cedric Benson and will have to rely on the untested Alex Green and inconsistent James Starks. The Texans will play their first game without Brian Cushing, but with the lack of running game from the Packers, this won’t bite them as badly as it could down the road. Pick: Texans

NFL 5 81 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 6 NFL matchups 31371325 Minnesota Vikings at Washington Redskins (Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET, FOX) Minnesota+Vikings+at+Washington+Redskins+%28Sunday%2C+4%3A25+p.m.+ET%2C+FOX%29 NFL

Typically in the NFL, home-field advantage is just that ... an advantage. Someone forgot to mention that to the Redskins, who've lost their last eight games at FedEx Field and now host the red-hot Vikings. All signs point to RG3 being available to play after suffering a concussion last week, but it will be on London Fletcher (pictured) the defense to slow down Percy Harvin and the opportunistic Vikings offense. Look for a heavy dose of Adrian Peterson and quick screens to Harvin combined with strategic shots down the field for big gains. Pick: Vikings

NFL 5 81 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 6 NFL matchups 31371324 New York Giants at San Francisco 49ers (Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET, FOX) New+York+Giants+at+San+Francisco+49ers+%28Sunday%2C+4%3A25+p.m.+ET%2C+FOX%29 NFL

This is a game that pits strength against strength. Kevin Gilbride’s Giants offense ranks second in scoring, second in total yards and second in passing yards. Vic Fangio’s 49ers defense ranks first in scoring, second in yards and second against the pass. Something is going to have to give, and it would be hard to bet against the home team. Let's not forget the 49ers are coming off an offensive outburst in which they put up 621 yards against Buffalo. Pick: 49ers

NFL 5 81 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 6 NFL matchups 31371323 New England Patriots at Seattle Seahawks (Sunday, 4:04 p.m. ET, CBS) New+England+Patriots+at+Seattle+Seahawks+%28Sunday%2C+4%3A04+p.m.+ET%2C+CBS%29 NFL

It is no secret that CenturyLink is a tough place to play, no matter what type of team the Seahawks field. This year, Russell Wilson is 2-0 at home and just 1-2 on the road. At home, he holds a 3:0 TD to INT ratio compared to 2:6 on the road. So while the Patriots are clearly the more elite team, it will be a dog fight for Tom Brady and company. I still think talent wins out, but it will be close. Pick: Patriots

NFL 5 81 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 6 NFL matchups 31371322 Buffalo Bills at Arizona Cardinals (Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ET, CBS) Buffalo+Bills+at+Arizona+Cardinals+%28Sunday%2C+4%3A05+p.m.+ET%2C+CBS%29 NFL

You need a sleeper quarterback for your fantasy team? Try picking up Kevin Kolb. The Bills are the 31st-ranked scoring defense and have been torched to the tune of 1,201 yards over the last two games. Starting Kolb on your fantasy team won’t come without risk, though, as he has been sacked 17 times in the last two games. Bobby Massie (pictured) and D’Anthony Batiste, the Cardinals'  two starting tackles, finished first and second in the league in sacks given up at 7.5 and 6, respectively. Pick: Cardinals

NFL 5 81 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 6 NFL matchups 31368401 Dallas Cowboys at Baltimore Ravens (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, FOX) Dallas+Cowboys+at+Baltimore+Ravens+%28Sunday%2C+1+p.m.+ET%2C+FOX%29 NFL

The Cowboys have always been a flashy team, but now they seem to be more concerned with the flash off the field than on it. It starts at the top with owner and general manager, Jerry Jones, working on opening Victoria’s Secret store fronts more so than improving a roster that isn’t producing on the field. I’m not questioning Jones’ football intelligence — I just think he wears too many hats between trying to be fiscally responsible as a owner while still maintaining the focus of a general manager with player evaluations. Pick: Ravens

The Rams will be playing a game with a winning record for the first time since the 2006 season. Jeff Fisher has already accumulated more wins this year than St. Louis had the entire 2011 season. The Dolphins have been much improved since the preseason, but the Rams continue to play sound football, especially on defense. The speed rush of Chris Long and Robert Quinn will make it a long day for Ryan Tannehill. Pick: Rams

NFL 5 81 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 6 NFL matchups 31371318 Oakland Raiders at Atlanta Falcons (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBS) Oakland+Raiders+at+Atlanta+Falcons+%28Sunday%2C+1+p.m.+ET%2C+CBS%29 NFL

Since 2003, the Raiders are just 5-23 when playing in the Eastern time zone. They'll travel to the East Coast five times this season, making them the team with the most total miles traveled throughout the season. Pile that on to the fact that the Falcons are almost perfect at home under Mike Smith and Matt Ryan and it doesn’t look very good for the Raiders. Smith has already given this franchise its first 5-0 start and holds a 3.5-game lead in the NFC South. With one more win, he will tie Dan Reeves for most wins in franchise history. Pick: Falcons

Matthew Stafford (right) has never faced the Eagles, but he is a dismal 5-11 on the road and has lost five of his last six starts away from home. The Eagles have their own issues, but mainly the fact that Michael Vick (left) has already been knocked down 54 times -- the most of any QB in the league. The fumbling numbers are obvious, but it starts with the cumulative hits to the body that Vick has already had to endure. Pick: Eagles

NFL 5 81 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 6 NFL matchups 31368402 Cincinnati Bengals at Cleveland Browns (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBS) Cincinnati+Bengals+at+Cleveland+Browns+%28Sunday%2C+1+p.m.+ET%2C+CBS%29 NFL

Brandon Weeden is averaging 43 dropbacks in the Browns' last three games, and if he attempts that many throws against the Bengals, I can assure you he will get to know Geno Atkins fairly well throughout the duration of the game. Atkins is tied for third in the NFL with six sacks and is tied for the lead with the most sacks as a defensive tackle since entering the league in 2010. The Browns need to let Trent Richardson be the workhorse to keep Atkins guessing. Pick: Bengals

NFL 5 81 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 6 NFL matchups 31371317 Indianapolis Colts at New York Jets (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBS) Indianapolis+Colts+at+New+York+Jets+%28Sunday%2C+1+p.m.+ET%2C+CBS%29 NFL

Forget about a rebuilding year for the Colts  -- they have a quarterback that gives them a chance to win right now. Andrew Luck is the first rookie QB to throw for more than 1,200 yards and win two of his team’s first 4 games .. and should have three.The schedule over the next five weeks is favorable and it starts with the Jets. The Jets defense sans Darrelle Revis played well against the Houston passing attack last week, but the Colts have a more diverse passing scheme with more quick-twitch receivers that will make it harder for Antonio Cromartie. Pick: Colts

NFL 5 81 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 6 NFL matchups 31371320 Kansas City Chiefs at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBS) Kansas+City+Chiefs+at+Tampa+Bay+Buccaneers+%28Sunday%2C+1+p.m.+ET%2C+CBS%29 NFL

Brady Quinn (pictured) will replace Matt Cassel as the starting QB for the Chiefs, at least while Cassel recovers from his Week 5 concussion. Quinn hasn’t had the most impressive career, but it’s not like he is filling big shoes for Sunday. While Kansas City is the fourth-ranked total offense, the Chiefs are just 18th in scoring and first in giveaways and have had at least three turnovers in each game so far this season. So any level of productivity out of Quinn could be an upgrade. Pick: Bucs
