2013 Week 6 NFL Picks: Packers Predicted to Defeat Ravens

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

APC's weekly picks are out, and the writers are confident in the Packers this week as they head to Baltimore.

In this week's installment of our weekly picks, you'll see that our authors are again confident in a Packers win this Sunday. Last week, we were unanimous in picking Green Bay to defeat Detroit, even without knowing that Calvin Johnson would be unavailable. That made it an easier pick, but it worked in our favor.

This week, we face a somewhat similar predicament. The Baltimore Ravens' star nose tackle, Haloti Ngata, missed practice on Wednesday with a hip injury and the severity of said injury is unknown. At this point, it's probably still more likely than not that he'll play, but it's possible that he may be limited if he does.

Meanwhile, we know most of the key Packers who will be held out of Sunday's game, as linebackers Brad Jones and Clay Matthews have already been ruled out. The only big question mark is Casey Hayward, who continues to miss practices due to his hamstring injury. We'll see what happens throughout the rest of the week, but for now the Packers are favored in Baltimore by three points.

NOTE: We'll have Tony's picks up later ON.

Shocker - everyone picked the Broncos to beat the Jaguars. That prediction would have been much more interesting if we were picking against the 27-point spread. Kansas City is also a unanimous pick to beat the Raiders, as is San Francisco over Arizona. In fact, 10 of this week's 15 games are unanimous among the SIXof us who have made our picks so far.

Last week, Josh was the big week 5 winner, putting in predictions that were two games better than the rest of the writing staff. Jason also picked up a game on Eric, pulling the two back into a tie for the overall lead.

Author Overall Last Week
Jason 50-27 8-6

Josh 47-30 10-4
Tony 45-32 8-6
Dan 44-33 7-7
Tex 43-34 8-6

One of these weeks, I'm going to climb out of the cellar.
