NFL expert picks for Week 6 are already coming in from CBS analysts. One of the most noteworthy Week 6 NFL predictions is that the Carolina Panthers will beat the Philadelphia Eagles. Cam Newton and the Panthers have taken over first place in the NFC South and a new report by CBS Sports picks them to beat the first place team from the NFC East (the Eagles). It may be the most important game during the Week 6 NFL schedule and fans will get to see it take place during primetime on Thursday night (Oct. 12).
Game time for the Panthers vs. Eagles is at 8:25 p.m. ET on Thursday night, with CBS and NFL Network carrying it for the national audience. With no undefeated teams left in the NFC, the winner of this game will emerge as the early No. 1 seed for the 2018 NFL Playoffs. There are still a lot of games left to be played in the regular season, but moving to 5-1 and taking over the driver’s seat in the conference is certainly an advantageous route to take to the postseason. The analysts are a bit split on whether this will be an offensive or defensive oriented game.
There are a few other contentious games in the Week 6 NFL expert picks, including the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs moved to 5-0 with an important Week 5 victory, pushing the team to an even larger lead on the rest of the AFC. Only one other team has escaped picking up its second loss already and that is the 3-1 Denver Broncos. If the Broncos can keep playing well, the AFC West could see some great games to finish the season. As for the Week 6 NFL predictions, the analysts slightly side with the Chiefs over the Steelers.
