It’s time to go on record with Week 6 NFL picks against the spread.

This column publishes every Thursday morning. If there is major injury/COVID-19-related news (like a starting quarterback being out) that significantly changes the line, I will update my pick here before kickoff. I will tweet out the updated link if changes are made.

Now let’s get to it!

Last week: 7-8-1

Season: 42-36-2

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Philadelphia Eagles (+6.5) | 8:20 p.m. ET Thursday, FOX/NFLN

The Eagles’ offense managed just five first downs on its first 11 possessions last week before rallying for a win against the Panthers. The failure to come up with a more creative run game that involves Jalen Hurts has been baffling. They finally mixed in some of that toward the end of last week’s game and need to do more going forward. In the passing game, the Eagles have to get Hurts outside the pocket, given the mismatch of their two backup guards against Vita Vea and Ndamukong Suh.

On the other side of the ball, Tom Brady suffered a thumb injury during last week’s win against the Dolphins.
