NFL 2012 Week 6 Picks: Cowboys vs. Ravens, Packers vs. Texans & New York Giants vs. San Francisco 49ers

Life is good right now if you love sports. October is the best sports month of the year. College football rivalries are getting heated. The BCS rankings come out. The MLB playoffs are underway. The NBA season is right around the corner and the trash talking has gotten started. And, of course, the NFL is in full swing. Here are 6 thoughts for VIBE’s Week 6 NFL picks.

Dallas Cowboys vs. Baltimore Ravens

• “The Cowboys haven’t won a Super Bowl since 1995, therefore they shall not be known as America’s team.” – Nevermore, The Raven

• The Cowboys’ offensive line couldn’t protect a child from a bully so the Ravens defensive line is going to get busy.

• Outside of wide receiver Torrey Smith, the Ravens passing game doesn’t have much punch, so the Cowboys’ secondary, the best in the NFL statistically, should have an easy time.

• The NFL is a copycat league so the same game plan used by the Kansas City Chiefs to keep the Ravens to only 9 points last week will for sure be used by the Cowboys this Sunday.

• Tony Romo and Dez Bryant are due for a great games.

• Cowboys win 28 – 24.

New York Giants vs. San Francisco 49ers

• The big payback. Don’t think for a second that the 49ers have forgot about the Giants stealing their Super Bowl dreams from them in their own backyard last season.

• The Giants don’t start focusing until Week 10, so don’t expect much from them this week.

• The 49ers are the best team in the NFC right now and it’s not even a question (Yeah, I know the Atlanta Falcons are undefeated).

• 49ers QB Alex Smit, having a sprained middle finger is kind of a big deal.

• Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is probably not going to play, which adds pressure on fellow WR Victor Cruz and this ain’t the Cleveland Browns’ secondary, it’s actually a good one.

• 49ers win 20 – 13.

Green Bay Packers vs. Houston Texans

• This will be the best game of the weekend.

• With linebacker Brian Cushing being out of the game it is going to be a huge blow for the Texans, but the Packers will also be without running back Cedric Benson and wide receiver Greg Jennings, so that should even things out.

• Matt Schaub is going to have a field day with the Packers secondary but Aaron Rodgers will actually outplay him.

• Clay Matthews and J.J. Watt are #1 and #2 in the NFL in sacks. Both are most definitely going to put on a sack show. Tell QBs Schaub and Rodgers to get the Motrin ready.

• If running back Arian Foster can go over 100 yards, then the Texans will win.

• Texans remain undefeated and the Packers wonder what the hell is going on. Texans 24 – 21.

A post shared by James Corden (@j_corden) on Dec 10, 2018 at 5:17pm PST

In addition to the “Money” rapper, Amber Heard and Armie Hammer will also appear on the same episode. Corden is closing out the last leg of 2018 strong by having a slew of other prominent stars on the show on the last week before the program goes on break for the holidays. The likes of Gwen Stefani, RuPaul, Jennifer Lopez, Emily Blunt, Leah Remini, Lin-Manuel Miranda, among others will be featured on the show after Bardi’s Monday episode.

To say the least, we're sure the British talk show host and the newly minted Grammy-nominated rapper are going to have the time of their lives.

The 26-year-old's now estranged husband Offset, along with the other members of Migos were guests on the beloved show. Joining Corden as he drove through the streets of Los Angeles, the trio performed a slew of hits including "Walk It Talk It"  while also giving a nod of praise to past hits, including Whitney Houston's "Wanna Dance With Somebody."

With all the fun Migos had with Corden, we can only imagine what shenanigans James and Belcalis are going to get into.

Nipsey Hussle Involved In L.A. Brawl After Being Mistaken For O.T. Genasis

Nipsey Hussle had a pretty eventful weekend. The rapper was reportedly involved in a brawl outside of a nightclub in West Hollywood on Sunday (Dec. 9). The only problem is, Nipsey wasn't the target; O.T. Genasis was.

The Victory Lap artist was reportedly outside of his girlfriend Lauren London's birthday bash at Nightingale's when the incident occurred. According to TMZ, several men approached Nipsey and his crew in the parking lot. A couple of them reportedly swung on the rapper before security was called to break up the situation.

While the brawl seemed random, but it apparently stemmed from an earlier interaction with O.T. Genasis. Earlier that night, the "Everybody Mad" rapper was reportedly spotted punching a man outside of the nightclub before chopping it up with Nipsey Hussle. TMZ reports that the unidentified man and friends were looking to even the score with O.T. Genasis and got mixed up because both him and Nipsey were wearing plaid shirts on the night of the incident. While it has not been confirmed, the situation looks like a typical case of mistaken identity.

Despite the drama, Nipsey seemed pretty unbothered when TMZ caught up with him outside of LAX. "That's life. We don't give that s**t no attention," Nipsey said about the altercation. "We workin' on music at this point. Do I got any bruises, any scratches? We workin' bro."

Ciara Requests Mediation With Future Over Son's Travel Schedule

Ciara has had enough of the back and forth with her ex Future over their son's travel schedule. Now, she's requesting help from the family court. The singer is reportedly asking the judge to force Future into mediation with her so they can hash out a travel schedule for their four-year-old, Future Jr.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Future has been a flake when it comes to keeping up with his visits with his son. He's allegedly missed scheduled visits and has frequently left baby Future with his mother or grandmother without spending time with him. The "Level Up" artist also noted that the constant traveling has been taxing on her son. So, she wants to figure out a schedule for his own wellbeing.

Ciara's legal team alleges that they attempted to straighten out a schedule without help from a judge, but were unsuccessful. If a judge will not grant a mandatory mediation, Ciara is requesting to settle the matter in a trial hearing.

Ciara and Future have had a very tumultuous relationship throughout the years. The former couple have been in and out of the courts regarding custody and child support. Hopefully, they will reach some middle ground in the new year.
