Following the Titans win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night, a sixth sense is telling me that this could be a week of many upsets. We’ll pick a few underdogs but we won’t go overboard as common sense and statistics will always prevail over 'sixth sense' feelings.
We finished week #5 going 4-1, bringing the last two week’s total to 9-1 and our season record to a more respectable 17-8. We’re hoping this little hot streak continues in Week#6. Here are this week’s five best bets:
*Home team in CAPS
Chiefs over BUCCANEERS: There are several reasons for us going with the Chiefs this week as a road dog. The first is that KC is one of only three teams to rank in the Top 10 in both offense anddefense. This week, what makes that stat so overwhelming is that Tampa Bay is one of two teams to rank in the bottom five in both offense and defense. The Bucs have won only one game in their last 14 dating back to October 23 of last year. Their only victory was in week #1 this season; a 16-10 win over Carolina. Not very impressive and thus no reason why the Chiefs cannot pull off the upset in this one.
FALCONS over the Raiders- We simply cannot see the undefeated Falcons caving at home against an under-achieving Raider team that has to travel cross country for the second time in the last four weeks. Raider RB Darren McFadden has only rushed for more than 34 yards just once in Oakland’s four games this season. We don’t think the bye week will help turn this team around enough to beat Matt Ryan, Roddy White, Julio Jones, and co., especially when you take into account that they are 2-8 in their last 10 regular season games.

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- For a few minutes Sunday, Cardinals kicker Jay Feely was the hero. He had just nailed a 61-yard field goal -- a franchise and personal best -- to tie the score againt Bills with just over a minute to play. The crowd at University of Phoenix Stadium roared in delight.
That same crowd was silenced mere minutes later when Feely missed a 38-yard field goal with three...
As the Arizona Cardinals prepare to welcome the Buffalo Bills into University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale Sunday, let's take a look at the all-time series between the two clubs. Buffalo leads, 5-4, and have won four of the last five games.

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated.) By BOB BAUM AP Sports Writer The Arizona Cardinals have a drastic shortage of running backs, just when they are about to meet a Buffalo defense that has been highly susceptible to the run.
Beanie Wells is long gone with a turf toe, with his earliest return Nov. 25. Now Ryan Williams is out for the season with a left shoulder injury that required...
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Down 16-13 with 1:09 to play and Jay Feely lining up for a 61-yard field goal, the Cardinals had the Bills right where they wanted them.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald Nearing 10,000 Career Yards -
Larry Fitzgerald needs just 48 yards to reach 10,000 for his career. Fitzgerald will join Randy Moss as the only two receivers to reach the milestone before their 30th birthday. This is just another feather in the cap of the future Hall of Famer.

Arizona kicker Jay Feely made a tying 61-yard field goal and, just as improbably, missed a 38-yarder that would have given the cardiac Cardinals another pull-it-from-the-ashes victory.
Had the Cardinals not had so many mistakes before that emotionally-draining sequence, it would never have come down to those two kicks.
Arizona lost a chance to win in regulation when Feely's...
Cardinals running back LaRod Stephens-Howling (hip) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Bills.Fantasy Spin:Stephens-Howling will split touches with William Powell as Arizona tries to replace Ryan Williams (shoulder). Neither player is an attractive fantasy option due to the Cardinals' offensive line woes.
In the four seasons before Mike Leach's arrival in Pullman Washington State was 9-40, and only six of those wins came against FBS programs. A decade without a bowl game, coupled with the rises of Stanford and Oregon in the Pac 12 North, had left the Cougars program in disarray with no viable recruiting pipeline. Nobody was expecting miracles from Leach.
That doesn't mean...
