      Hello Colts Fans, thanks for stopping by.  We are bringing back the NFL Picks Challenge this week, and we want to see your picks.  Are you ready to take us on?  Last week, the staff members fared very well picking games with records ranging from 7-7 to 11-3, and top bragging rights going to Josh Boeke, and Marcus Dugan (yay, me).  The highest score among readers was “gizzardfanny,” with a very respectable 9-5 record.  There are some intriguing match-ups around the league this week (not the least of which is Colts at Jets), with very few games that look like a lock.  So, if you have what it takes – or if you just want something to do, get into the comments, and let your football prediction skills shine.  You could win…well, I don't have a prize budget, but you could win the right to brag about winning, or to do a Donald Brown victory dance.  Of course, you can leave out your Thursday Night winner, as the Titans have already finished proving that anyone can win on any given...Thursday.  That also gives you a leg up on the writers, since we ALL picked Pittsburgh.     Here's a quick chart of how the staff did last week, and who everyone picked for Week 6.  We're still waiting on, ahem, someone.  Josh Boeke @Colt_Following 11-3   PIT -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Marcus Dugan @MarcusDugan 11-3 PIT BAL CIN MIA IND ATL PHI KC ARI NE NYG MIN HOU DEN Brent Fatig @GoHorse88 10-4 PIT BAL CIN MIA IND ATL PHI TB ARI SEA SF MIN GB DEN Greg Cowan @CA_Radio 10-4 PIT BAL CIN MIA IND ATL DET TB ARI NE SF MIN HOU DEN Kyle Rodriguez @ColtsAuth_Kyle 10-4 PIT BAL CIN MIA IND ATL DET TB ARI NE SF WAS HOU DEN Lou Pin @Jorgelfman 10-4 PIT BAL CIN MIA IND ATL PHI TB ARI SEA SF MIN HOU DEN Scott Kacsmar @CaptainComeback 10-4 PIT BAL CIN STL IND ATL PHI TB ARI NE SF MIN HOU DEN Laura Caloway @LovinBlue 9-5 PIT BAL CIN MIA NYJ ATL DET TB ARI NE SF WAS HOU DEN Rohan Bhasin @NYKings 9-5 PIT BAL CIN MIA IND ATL PHI TB ARI NE SF MIN GB DEN Todd Smith @todd_e_smith 7-7 PIT DAL CIN STL IND ATL DET TB BUF NE SF MIN HOU DEN Nate Dunlevy @NateDunlevy 0-0 PIT BAL CIN STL NYJ ATL PHI TB ARI -- SF MIN HOU DEN   Next week, I will hopefully be able to chart the top reader participants' records on here as well.  Here is a list of the Week 6 games if you need a point of reference.  You can type your picks in the comments or email marcus@coltsauthority.com, whatever works best for you.  PIT at  TEN    Well we all know how this one ended.  Hats off to Hasselbeck and the Titans. DAL at  BAL    Flacco is coming off an ugly game, but has had a good season. Then there's that defense. CIN at  CLE    Brandon Weeden. Period. STL at  MIA   The Rams had a nice win with very little offense last week.  Can they win like that on the road? IND at  NYJ    Sanchez, Tebow, Sanchez...As Ted Marchibroda used to say, "I like our guy."  Go Colts. OAK at ATL    The Raiders' only win so far was against Pittsburgh.  I'd call that a quality win, but good luck stopping Atlanta. DET at PHI     Philly has struggled. The Lions have really struggled. There could be a great many turnovers in this one. KC at   TB      Believe it or not, it's not Vick and the Eagles who lead the league in turnovers, it's the Chiefs. BUF at ARI     Arizona had trouble on offense last week, but the Bills aren't playing much defense in 2012. NE at  SEA     Seattle is good, and they're at home.  But they're playing the Patriots. NYG at  SF     NFC Championship re-match.  Eli(te) versus Smith. MIN at WAS   One of these teams has been tough on defense.  The other is the Washington Redskins. GB  at  HOU    Remember when the Texans were awful?  I guess nothing lasts for ever. DEN at  SD     101 quarterback rating, 1,499 yds, 11 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. 2-3 record. One of these things doesn't match.  Good Luck, choose your winners wisely, and have an awesome weekend.
