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
