Week 5 NFL Picks

Well with all the stuff thats been going on with the government, I think it’s time for us to vent our anger towards something else.  I might not have this up in time for the Bills/Browns game, but regardless we can all agree that this one is of minor significance.  Anyways let’s go.

Bills at Browns

(2-2-0)

Bills

(2-2-0)

Browns

While Buffalo did get an impressive win against the defending champion Ravens last weekend, I think the Browns two-game winning streak speaks for itself.  If they win tonight they will be 3-0 without Trent Richardson, and they will.

My Pick:  Browns

Patriots at Bengals

(4-0-0)

Patriots

(2-2-0)

Bengals

For the last three weeks I have doubted the Patriots and I have paid the price for it each time.  I will reverse that trend this week especially because New England just beat an NFC contender while the Bengals lost to…well the Browns.

My Pick:  Patriots

Lions at Packers

(3-1-0)

Lions

(1-2-0)

Packers

It isn’t so much that I can’t see the Lions starting 4-1, rather it’s that I can’t see the Packers starting 1-3.  Especially since it’s at Lambeau.

My Pick:  Packers

Seahawks at Colts

(4-0-0)

Seahawks

(3-1-0)

Colts

Great win by Seattle last weekend and same for Indianapolis.  However in a battle of two young quarterbacks I think the better defense will win this battle, and it will be Seattle’s. 

My Pick:  Seahawks

Ravens at Dolphins

(2-2-0)

Ravens

(3-1-0)

Dolphins

Miami has gotten off to a good start, but Baltimore is going to bounce back this week especially since the Dolphins showed some vulnerabilities in their loss to New Orleans.  Miami is good, but they have a long way to go before they’re considered a legitimate contender.

My Pick:  Dolphins

Saints at Bears

(4-0-0)

Saints

 

(3-1-0)

Bears

It isn’t so much that the Bears have looked bad, it’s just that the Saints are this good.  In this battle of contenders, I can’t see Chicago stopping New Orleans offense.

My Pick:  Saints

Eagles at Giants

(1-3-0)

Eagles

(0-4-0)

Giants

While both are terrible, the Eagles have looked less terrible in their losses and that’s why I’m going with them.

My Pick:  Eagles

Who would’ve thought Eli and Big Ben would be 0-4.

Chiefs at Titans

(4-0-0)

Chiefs

(3-1-0)

Titans

In a battle of surprise teams, Kansas City has looked like the more complete one, and especially without Jake Locker it should be a breeze to stretch their record to 5-0.

My Pick:  Chiefs

Jaguars at Rams

(0-4-0)

Jaguars

(1-3-0)

Rams

Well Jacksonville should get at least one win this year.

My Pick:  Rams

Should, not will!

Panthers at Cardinals

(1-2-0)

Panthers

(2-2-0)

Cardinals

While Arizona did get a good win against Tampa last week, don’t expect the same against Carolina.  The Panthers have too many weapons and I don’t think the Cardinals have enough to win this one.

My Pick:  Panthers

Broncos at Cowboys

(4-0-0)

Broncos

(2-2-0)

Cowboys

I can’t pick against Denver, but seriously who can?

My Pick:  Broncos

Just think below .500 could win the NFC East this year.  Hmmm, I wonder who’s won a division like that lately?!

Texans at 49ers

 

(2-2-0)

Texans

(2-2-0)

49ers

I’m surprised both these contenders are 2-2 this season.  However with all the ball security issues the Niners have had I need to go with Houston especially since there’s no way they’re losing three in a row.

My Pick:  Texans

Chargers at Raiders

(2-2-0)

Chargers

(1-3-0)

Raiders

[Insert Raiders joke here]

My Pick:  Chargers

That shouldn’t get old anytime soon.

Jets at Falcons

(2-2-0)

Jets

(1-3-0)

Falcons

Every time I pick against the Jets they win, and every time I pick them they lose.  I’m definitely picking the Falcons this week (and for obvious reasons), but I’ll let you know if this trend continues.

My Pick:  Falcons

My Record:  36-27

The Redskins, Steelers, Vikings, and Buccaneers have byes this week.

Best of luck, and stay classy!
