NFL Week 6 odds: A case for each underdog

The NFL Week 6 odds are out there, and it’s time to see how each underdog can cover their respective spreads.

Washington Commanders at Chicago Bears (-1)

The Commanders have more talent than the Bears, and Carson Wentz should be able to hit a few shot plays to loosen up Chicago’s defense.

San Francisco 49ers (-5.5) at Atlanta Falcons

Atlanta is getting a very beat-up Niners team traveling across the country for an early game, and before they play the Chiefs. Could be a great spot.

New England Patriots at Cleveland Browns (-3)

The Patriots aren’t more talented than the Browns, but they are well-coached and can run the ball to control the clock. It’s a winning formula.

New York Jets at Green Bay Packers (-7)

The Packers have been a mess, while the Jets have an electric group of young playmakers and a quarterback in Zach Wilson who is coming into his own.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Indianapolis Colts (-2)

The Jaguars just pounded the Colts 24-0 in Week 2. What else do you need?

Minnesota Vikings (-3) at Miami Dolphins

Miami doesn’t have its starting quarterback, but the Dolphins are a talented defense — that must soon step up — with two game-breaking offensive weapons.

Cincinnati Bengals (-2) at New Orleans Saints

The Saints are at home, and they have a secondary thatch contend with Cincinnati’s weapons. Right now, Cincinnati isn’t playing to standard, either.

Baltimore Ravens (-5) at New York Giants

The Giants have made many of us believers because of their coaching, and defensive coordinator Wink Martindale gets to see his old team. Bad news for Baltimore.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-8) at Pittsburgh Steelers

The power of prayer? This is a tough case to make.

Carolina Panthers at Los Angeles Rams (-10.5)

The only real case is addition by subtraction after the firing of head coach Matt Rhule.

Arizona Cardinals (-3) at Seattle Seahawks

Geno Smith is playing like Joe Montana. That’s a good enough reason. Also, Kyler Murray is not.

Buffalo Bills (-3) at Kansas City Chiefs

Patrick Mahomes has been an underdog eight times in his career. He’s 6-2, and he’s covered seven times with one push.

Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles (-5)

Dallas has an elite defense and enough weapons that, even if Cooper Rush has to play another game, the Cowboys can score into the 20s and potentially knock Philadelphia off.

Denver Broncos at Los Angeles Chargers (-5)

At some point, things have to turn for Russell Wilson, right? Right? Anyone?
