NFL Week 5 Picks

After two weeks, I’m proud to say that I stand 22-10 in my picks. My best guess last week turned out to be the 49ers over the Eagles. Now I can see why the other writers here haven’t been challenging me…..yes, that’s an invitation.

Now, let’s get started with Week 5.

The 1 PM Games

Philadelphia @ Buffalo

-I pick the Bills. My faith in the Eagles has….waned.

New Orleans @ Carolina

-Saints, no question. They look unstoppable.

Oakland @ Houston

-I’m going with Da Raiders. I think McFadden tops 150 yards rushing.

Kansas City @ Indianapolis

-I vote Chiefs. They’ll finish second in their division behind Oakland.

Cincinatti @ Jacksonville

-Cedric Benson still plays and Jaguars lose.

Arizona @ Minnesota

-Cardinals should win this. The Vikings can’t be consistent at this point, at least not in the second half.

Seattle @ New York Giants

-The Giants are on a roll, and the Seahawks start Tarvaris Jackson. Giants.

Tennessee @ Pittsburgh

-Titans win. Not being a homer, the Steelers are just breaking down. However, I doubt CJ rushes for 100 yards, despite the Steelers defensive run game struggles.

The 4 PM Games

Tampa Bay @ San Francisco

-I’ll be honest, this is the game I’m most looking forward to watching this week. Two hard-fighting teams battling it out for what could be a wild card spot. Which team wants the playoffs the most? It’s only week 5 and that will matter.

San Diego @ Denver

-I’ve given up hope for Denver, but I bet both starting RB’s top 100 yards– Ryan Matthews (SD) and Willis McGahee (DEN). Chargers win.

New York Jets @ New England

-I hope Tom Brady throws for 350 yards….on Antonio Cromartie’s side. Pats win.


Green Bay @ Atlanta

-I just don’t see Atlanta keeping pace, which is ironic because it’s the entire reason they got WR Julio Jones. Pack wins by 10.


Chicago @ Detroit

-Bears win. That’s right, I’m calling upset.
