Details on Jon Gruden’s resignation plus NFL Week 6 picks, Prisco’s Power Rankings and wild ‘MNF’ game recap


Welcome to the Tuesday edition of the Pick Six Newsletter!

If you know anyone who would make a good NFL head coach, you might want to give them the Raiders’ phone number, because they’re now hiring after the stunning departure of Jon Gruden on Monday night.
