NFL Week Six Picks: Cowboys A Sure Thing For Monday?

New, comments
The Cowboys: One of seven unanimous picks for week seven.
The Cowboys: One of seven unanimous picks for week seven.

Thirteen teams currently have at least a share of first place in their respective divisions, the most in NFL history through the first six weeks of a season.

Ten of those 13 clubs did not win their divisions a year ago, and all eight divisions have at least one new team either in first place or tied for the top spot. If that holds, it will be the most new division winners in a single season.

There are 21 teams with a .500 or better record. That’s tied with 2008 for the most such teams through the first six weeks of a season in NFL history.

How do you pick winners in a league that is so completely outside the norm? Go with your gut. Do not go with any fancy-pants algorithms or stat-based prediction models. Trust me. That is just about the only thing I'm sure about this season.
