Of all the things I never thought I'd see in an NFL game, I definitely have to say that a birthing instructional video tops the list.
The next time your kid asks how babies are born, you don't have to give them an awkward answer, instead, you can just pop in JuJu Smith-Schuster's touchdown celebration from Sunday and it will answer every question that kid might have.
Potential kid questions:
"Are all babies shaped like a football before they come out?"
"Do you have to wear a helmet to have a baby?"
You know what, now that I'm thinking about this out loud, that video probably won't answer any questions at all and will likely only make the kid more confused, kind of like the Browns were probably confused when Greg Joseph's game-winning field goal against the Ravens somehow managed to go through the uprights.
I'm still not sure if the Browns are the luckiest team in the NFL, the unluckiest team in the NFL or it if's just a combination of both. Based on the fact that they're basically six plays away from being 0-0-5, I'm going to go ahead and say it's a combination of both.NFL Week 6 early odds: Unbeaten Chiefs open as an underdog, Bengals favored over Steelers
Although Joseph's field goal was ugly, it did go through the uprights, which is more than I can say for nearly everything that Mason Crosby kicked on Sunday. Watching Crosby was like watching an episode of Ghost Adventures. You know how they never find any ghosts, but you still watch? That was Crosby. By the midpoint of the game, you knew that his kicks weren't going to go in, but you had to keep watching for the sheer entertainment value of seeing what kind of faces the players on the Packers sideline would make after each miss.
Anyway, no one likes talking about kickers, so let's get to the picks.
Actually, before we get to my picks, here's a quick reminder that you can check out the weekly picks from every CBSSports.com NFL expert by clicking here. The reason you should click over and check out the other experts this week is because Will Brinson is on a roll. Brinson is basically the Chiefs offense of NFL picks right now: He's unstoppable and he doesn't seem to be slowing down. In Week 5, Brinson went an insane 14-1, which was the best record in the country, according to our friends at Pickwatch. Thanks to his 14-1 record, Brinson is also now tied as the best overall picker in the country.
All of this from a guy who spends 60 percent of his day drinking craft beer. I think this might mean there's a correlation between craft beer and making good NFL picks, which means I'm going to have stop drinking Zima and start drinking way more craft beer.
Alright, let's get to the picks, where hopefully I'll be at least three times more accurate than Mason Crosby was on Sunday.

NFL Week 6 Picks
Philadelphia (2-3) at N.Y. Giants (1-4)
8:20 p.m. ET, Thursday (Fox)
The Giants have officially reached a point in the season where they need a distraction just to distract them from all their other distractions, and in a twist of irony, I think that's what Odell Beckham basically did ON ACCIDENT with his ESPN interview. I mean, the biggest story from this interview should have been that Odell threw Eli Manning's accuracy under the bus and also basically said he's not happy in New York. However, no one cares about those things because all anyone cares about is the fact that Lil Wayne was there. I have no idea why Lil Wayne was there, but I will say that if your options for an interview are bring Lil Wayne or don't bring Lil Wayne, option two is never the correct choice.
Instead of everyone in the Giants' locker room being mad at each other over Odell's interview, the exact opposite is happening. I mean, Eli is making Lil Wayne jokes.
I thought I would see Taylor Swift go on tour with 50 Cent before I'd see a Manning brother make a Lil Wayne joke, but I was clearly wrong. In a bizarre twist that I definitely didn't see coming, Odell's interview has somehow unified the team. Sure, the Giants are 1-4, but that doesn't matter, because they're just 1.5 games out of first place in the NFC East, which might be the worst division in football right now. As bad as the Giants have been on offense this year, they've scored the MOST POINTS in the division (The Redskins have played one less game due to a bye, but that's semantics). On the Eagles' end, they barely have one healthy running back, Carson Wentz has looked rusty and I'm now convinced they have a Super Bowl hangover because they're exhibiting all the symptoms I was showing after that bachelor party I went to last week.
I'm taking the Giants and I'm dedicating the pick to Lil Wayne.
The pick: Giants 27-24 over Eagles
Seattle (2-3) vs. Oakland (1-4) in London
1 p.m. ET (Fox)
I'm going to be up front with you guys here, this game is being played in London and if the past is any indication, there's a 100 percent chance I'm going to get this pick wrong. For two straight seasons (2015-16), I whiffed on every London pick I made and the streak didn't end until I finally got one right last year. The only thing uglier than my London picks has been Jon Gruden's five-game stint as the Raiders coach this year.
