NFL Week 5 Pick'em Predictions and Survival Football

Quite the week lined up. Of the 13 games this week. I have 10 of them being won by the visiting team. I don't know how I feel about that, but let's see what happens.

I think the Bills will continue to slide after the Bengals of all teams laid the blueprint of how to stop them. Eagles should be able to capitalize with their pass game.

Titans show no signs of slowing down as they take out the heartless Steelers.

Colts finally get a win under their belts at home against the Chiefs.

I think the loss of Andre Johnson is enough to throw the Texans off their game.

I struggled with the Lions and the Bears. The Lions have to be the worst looking 4-0 team ever, it was the pass rush against heavily-sacked Cutler that pushed me toward Detroit in this one.

If you've got any upset of your own or want to point out why you think one of us is out of our mind, go ahead and post it in the comments.

  1. My upset comment of the week:

    Can I go 2 for 2?
    My upset game for week 5 has to be Vikings taking the Cardinals.
    Don't really know exactly why, except that they are both bad teams, but I'm feeling MIN will win behind a 2TD - 200yd performance of McNabb.

    Also I like the 49ers better than Tampa Bay and the Steelers better than Titans.
    You guys can see that we are not agreeing too much this week.

  2. Don't remember if I commented or not on it last week, but I meant to. Wholly impressed with your SF pick. Well done.

    Yeah, this week is a tough one. Lots of very evenly matched teams. A buch of games could go either way. I might actually make some changes before kickoff.

  3. Ok, so now I'm 4-4 on upsets.
    Guess I'm better at picking winners than picking players, cause I changed my lineup ladt night based on GHL rankings. Left BJGE and Victor Cruz on the bench for Addai and Jacoby jones.
    Talk about a dumb

    Or maybe I should trust my gut a little bit more.

  4. Always go with the gut. You are killing Pick'em though, so I'm impressed. Enjoy your shoutout in our newest one!
