NFL Weekly Picks – Week 5

I'm kicking Dustin's butt like TJ Ward hits receivers.

The score now between zach and myself is 37-31, with Zach holding a big 6 pick lead over me. Now lets see if I can catch up this week:


Chicago Bears (3-1) @ Carolina Panthers (0-4)

Dustin:  Da Bears. Despite losing their perfect record last week, they should still be able to top the winless Panthers.

Zach: Bears get it rolling again.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-1) @ Cincinnati Bengals (2-2)

D: Bengals. The Bengals will be looking to bounce back after last weeks loss to THE BROWNS! (still very excited about that).

Z: Buccaneers, I think they can recover from their loss to the Steelers against a Bengals team reeling after a tough loss to Cleveland.

St. Louis Rams (2-2) @ Detroit Lions (0-4)

D: Rams. Second winless teams play at home this week, and I don’t think it will help them enough to beat the Rams.

Z: Lions. I think the Lions get their 1st win. They have looked pretty good despite losing everything thus far, and despite the obvious improvements and great play from Sam Bradford, I think the Lions steal this one.

New York Giants (2-2) @ Houston Texans (3-1)

D: Texans. The Texans beat Peyton, now its time to beat Eli.

Z: Texans continue their winning ways against the Giants. No matter how good the Giant pass rush is, I think Schaub can find his receivers.

Denver Broncos (2-2) @ Baltimore Ravens (3-1)

D: Ravens. They have looked good at home in their one home game and I expect no less this week.

Z: Ravens. I want to be bold and pick the Broncos and their surprisingly prolific passing game, I just cant do it.

Atlanta Falcons (3-1) @ Cleveland Browns (1-3)

D: Browns. Looking to stay on a roll this week after picking up win #1 last week.

Z: Falcons. I think the Browns will give them a good fight, but it will be the same problems of not getting pressure on the QB and having to send too many guys after him that do the Browns in again.

Kansas City Chiefs (3-0) @ Indianapolis Colts (2-2)

D: Colts. After the Chiefs drop this one in Indy, there won’t be any more undefeated teams.

Z: Colts. I think this is a pretty early must win for the Colts, and Peyton should be able to rise to the occasion against the shocking last undefeated team in football.

Jacksonville Jaguars (2-2) @ Buffalo Bills (0-4)

D: Jaguars. The bills are 0-2 at home and they don’t really look like they are going to improve that just yet.

Z: Jags. The Bills are just a bad team right now, and though the Jags aren’t very good either they can win this one.

Green Bay Packers (3-1) @ Washington Redskins (2-2)

D: Packers. Rodgers and the Pack will overwhelm McNabb and the ‘Skins at home, especially because Portis is out.

Z: Packers. I can’t pick against the Cheeseheads right now, despite a loss to Chicago.

New Orleans Saints (3-1) @ Arizona Cardinals (2-2)

D: Saints. While the Cards no longer start DA they still can’t beat the Saints.

Z: Saints. The Cardinals don’t have the offensive fire power to stick with the Saints even when the Saints aren’t clicking on all cylinders.

Tennessee Titans (2-2) @ Dallas Cowboys (1-2)

D: Cowboys. They will have to overcome CJ but at home they should be able to handle the Titans.

Z: Cowboys. The win against the Texans is likely just the beginning of a lengthy winning streak, they will force mistakes from Vince Young and do just enough to eek out a win.

San Diego Chargers (2-2) @ Oakland Raiders (1-3)

D: Chargers. Oakland has looked mostly disjointed and uninspired this year. The Chargers will take full advantage of that.

Z: Chargers. Everytime I pick them to win they lose and if I pick them to lose they win. I just can’t see the Raiders, the most poorly run team in any sport ever, beating them.

Philadelphia Eagles (2-2) @ San Francisco 49ers (0-4)

D: 49ers. With Kolb at the helm the Eagles look static and disinterested. The Niners D will take care of them easily.

Z: Eagles. I don’t know why the 49ers are playing so poorly, but I think that Kevin Kolb answers a few of his critics this weekend.

Minnesota Vikings (1-2) @ New York Jets (3-1)

D: Jets. Moss and Favre won’t be able to overcome Revis and the Jets D in their first week as a team.

Z: Jets. This is a tough one to call. It could go either way, but I think the Jets defense will cause Favre a lot of problems that Adrian Peterson won’t be able to overcome by himself.
