NFL Week 5 Picks

Updated: Oct 11, 2023

The NFL season is in full swing now! I give my Week 5 Picks in what should be a good week of football!

Week 4 Record: 12-4

Overall Record: 44-20

Thursday Night Football: Chicago Bears at Washington Commanders, 8:15 PM

The Bears did have a good game Sunday against the Broncos and still lost. I expect their losing ways to continue on Thursday against a capable Commanders squad.

Score Prediction: Commanders 24, Bears 13

Sunday Slate:

Jacksonville Jaguars at Buffalo Bills, 9:30 AM

The Jaguars have their second week in London playing one of the hottest teams in football. I believe the London trip ends in a loss for the Jags.

Score Prediction: Bills 34, Jaguars 24

Tennessee Titans at Indianapolis Colts, 1 PM

The Titans had an impressive win over the Bengals on Sunday, I expect that to carry over when they travel to Indy and face rookie Anthony Richardson.

Score Prediction: Titans 24, Colts 17

New Orleans Saints at New England Patriots

Two abysmal offenses in Week 4 face off in this matchup. I don't know if I want to back either offense. If I had to though, I would pick the Saints.

Score Prediction: Saints 20, Patriots 17

Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers either look good or bad. We saw the latter in Week 4. I expect their struggles to continue when Lamar Jackson rolls into town.

Score Prediction: Ravens 27, Steelers 17

Houston Texans at Atlanta Falcons

C.J. Stroud has looked the part of a franchise QB so far in his young career, while Desmond Ridder has not. I expect these trends to continue in their Week 5 matchup.

Score Prediction: Texans 24, Falcons 14

Carolina Panthers at Detroit Lions

The Panthers have not looked good this year as their record would show. Bryce Young hasn't shown anything so far. They go into Detroit to play one of the best teams in the league. Expect a loss.

Score Prediction: Lions 30, Panthers 14

New York Giants at Miami Dolphins

The Giants stink and Daniel Jones isn't good. They have to go to Miami to play one of the hottest offenses coming off a loss. Bet the Dolphins spread, moneyline and over.

Score Prediction: Dolphins 34, Giants 17

Cincinnati Bengals at Arizona Cardinals, 4:05 PM

The Bengals have burned me every week I have picked them to win but I still believe that they will bounce back, especially against an average Arizona team.

Score Prediction: Bengals 24, Cardinals 13

Philadelphia Eagles at Los Angeles Rams

I don't trust the Rams at all, even after their win on Sunday. They do not seem like a team that can make any noise. The Eagles take care of them easily.

Score Prediction: Eagles 31, Rams 17

New York Jets at Denver Broncos, 4:25 PM

The Broncos got their first win while Zach Wilson impressed in his game. Two things we never thought would happen. The Broncos aren't playing the Bears this week and I think Zach Wilson can carry over his performance. Give me the Jets.

Score Prediction: Jets 24, Broncos 17

Kansas City Chiefs at Minnesota Vikings

This game has sneaky shootout potential. Two good offenses going at it in a matchup that could be the game of the week. I trust the Chiefs more to win this game though.

Score Prediction: Chiefs 38, Vikings 28

Sunday Night Football: Dallas Cowboys at San Francisco 49ers, 8:20 PM

Two heavyweights in the NFC in primetime. It can't get much better than that. Or can it? I wouldn't be surprised if the 49ers make quick work of the Cowboys and that's what I'm predicting will happen.

Score Prediction: 49ers 31, Cowboys 21

Monday Night Football: Green Bay Packers at Las Vegas Raiders, 8:15 PM

Both of these teams are pretty average, but the Raiders are dealing with a contentious locker room after weeks of losses and are dealing with injuries. I like the Packers in this matchup.

Score Prediction: Packers 24, Raiders 17
