Week 5 NFL picks

I took it on the chin last week, I'm learning some of these teams now. More gutsy picks this week:

Jaguars over Bills: The Bills are more competitive but Jacksonville is flying high after knocking off the Colts.

Bengals over Buccaneers: At some point the superheroes have to win a game. They will win this one.

Browns over Falcons: This is my upset of the week.

Lions over Rams: I think the Lions are much better than what we know. They get a win this week.

Colts over Chiefs: The Colts bounce back and the Chiefs lose that unbeaten tag.

Redskins over Packers: I believe the Packers are ripe for an upset. Too many injuries will be the reason.

Bears over Panthers: The Bears are a better team. Carolina is improving but not enough to win.

Broncos over Ravens: Baltimore stole one in Pittsburgh and may have a letdown this week.

Giants over Texans: If the Giants stop the run, their pass rush will win this game.

Saints over Cardinals: The Saints have struggled but I think they can win this one.

Raiders over Chargers: This will be a really good watch. I believe the Raiders will get it done.

Cowboys over Titans: The 'Boys are starting to warm up. They have enough defense to handle Chris Johnson.

Vikings over Jets: This game is a tough one to call but I think the Vikes will get it.

49ers over Eagles: No Vick and a nervous Kevin Kolb against an underachieving, P.O.'d defense will clip the damaged wings of the Eagles.

No survivor, but if I did I would have picked the Jaguars.

Byes: Dolphins, Patriots, Steelers, Seahawks

A Jags team flying high over their win over Indy is ripe for an upset, not another win.

When LaVar says we win, we don't. When picks us to lose, we win. Please LaVar do not ever pick the redskins to win a game ever again.
