NFL Week 5 Picks

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Atlanta over NY Jets

It's tough to like this one for the Jets. Atlanta is one of the toughest road environments in the league. They are going to put up points, even with the Jets' defense, and the New York offense is missing key air weapons.

Buffalo over Cleveland

Mainly because I believe in neither Brian Hoyer nor the Browns so I don't think they can do it three straight weeks.

New England over Cincinnati

The Pats look really tough.

Green Bay over Detroit

A desperate team against a team on letdown alert.

Indianapolis over Seattle

While the way they have gutted out two road wins is impressive, the Seahawks are a different team away from home.

Baltimore over Miami

Miami is still licking its wounds.

Chicago over New Orleans

The road game on a short week rule comes into play here.

NY Giants over Philadelphia

I think the Giants' offense can exploit how much time the Eagles are giving opponents with the ball.

Kansas City over Tennessee

Ryan Fitzpatrick starting over Jake Locker changes the complexion of this one.

St. Louis over Jacksonville

The Rams are bad, but the Jaguars might be 2008 Lions bad.

Arizona over Carolina

The Cardinals can stop the run.

Denver over Dallas

Peyton Manning is on another planet, and this week he faces a defense he knows better than any other.

San Francisco over Houston

I don't see where Houston musters up a big performance after last week's meltdown.

San Diego over Oakland

Philip Rivers is quietly having a big bounceback campaign.
