It's always nice having Peyton on your side. The Chiefs are on the rise and should contend for a playoff spot but didn't have enough to beat the Colts at home.
40% of my pool was eliminated last week thanks to the Bengals, Cowboys, Chargers and Saints.
Tennessee, Green Bay, New England, New Orleans and Indianapolis are off the board.
Two options for us in week 6. The Steelers are home against the Mangina led quarterback less Browns. The Steelers are coming off a bye and Big Ben returns. The only way this game is close is if Ben is really rusty.
The surging Giants return home to face the 1-4 Lions. The Lions are an awful road team. They may keep this close early but Eli should be able to take advantage of their suspect secondary. Giants roll.
As you know, I advocate taking the best game every week and avoid looking ahead. However, I'm going to change it up this week and make a strategic move. A significant amount of people used the Giants in week 1 in my pool. Thus, I anticipate a lot of play on the Steelers. The Steelers have some strong home games down the road and the Giants have none. If the Giants win and the Steelers lose you will be in great shape.
Official pick is....
