The San Francisco 49ers stayed rolling against the Seattle Seahawks last weekend, and now are looking to avoid taking their foot off the gas pedal in what should be a fairly easy contest against the Arizona Cardinals.

Due to our sponsorship with Tallysight, we have to pick every game. But, as usual, we’ll narrow it down to six for you at the bottom. Odds for all the games are available on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Regular season: 154-116-2

Week 1: 7-9
Week 2: 9-7
Week 3: 10-6

Week 5: 10-4
Week 6: 9-6
Week 7: 7-6
Week 8: 9-7

Week 10: 7-7
Week 11: 8-5
Week 12: 9-7
Week 13: 7-6
Week 14: 5-10
Overall: 118-89

Here are Marc’s picks for this week’s slate of games:

Chargers over Raiders: No Justin Herbert

Bengals over Vikings: The Cincinnati

Steelers over Colts: Two teams scrambling

Broncos over Lions: The Lions should be on high-alert after getting boat raced by the Bears, but Denver has quietly turned things around and could pose an unexpected challenge.

Packers over Bucs: Jordan Love finally seems to have turned the corner and should lead Green Bay to an easy win against Tampa Bay.

Falcons over Panthers: The Falcons aren’t good, but they aren’t the Panthers.

Saints over Giants: What happens

Texans over Titans: Stroud’s concussion may keep him sidelined again, but I’m riding the +140 pick hoping he finds a way to play.

Browns over Bears: If Justin Fields can stay hot against the Browns, that would be a heckuva way to strengthen his resume.

Dolphins over Jets: The Shanahan-deciphels face off.

Kansas City over Patriots: Things aren’t great in Kansas City, but I won’t sound alarm bells unless they struggle against New England.

Commanders over Rams: After a slew of rough performances, I think the Commanders have an opportunity to catch the Rams slipping this weekend.

49ers over Cardinals: Don’t mess this up Niners.

Cowboys over Bills: Buffalo’s record is approaching it’s point-differential, but Josh Allen is more likely to make a costly mistake than Dak Prescott.

Ravens over Jaguars: This is the year for Lamar Jackson to win a Super Bowl, and Jacksonville shouldn’t be a problem.

Eagles over Seahawks: The Eagles are still hurt. Seattle is a solid squad, but there’s still a massive talent gap between these teams.

Here are the six games to pick (times in Pacific):

Steelers @ Colts, 1:30 PM (Saturday)

Broncos @ Lions, 5:15 PM (Saturday)

Falcons @ Panthers, 10:00 AM (Sunday)

Texans @ Titans, 10:00 AM (Sunday)

49ers @ Cardinals, 1:05 PM (Sunday)

Cowboys @ Bills, 1:25 PM (Sunday)
