Week 5 NFL Pick’em

Not a terrible showing last week. Jordan and I are both a healthy dose over .500. My Girlfriend’s Little Sister did not fare so well though. The way this season is going, picks are getting a little hard, this week took me longer than most. When you are seeing upsets like JAX over IND and CLE over CIN, its hard to feel confident about any picks.

But here we go…

Overall Total 38-24 37-25 29-33

JAX @ BUF BUF BUF JAX
TB @ CIN CIN CIN TB
ATL @ CLE ATL ATL ATL
STL @ DET STL STL DET
KC @ IND IND KC IND
GB @ WAS GB GB WAS
CHI @ CAR CHI CHI CAR
DEN @ BAL BAL BAL DEN
NYG @ HOU NYG HOU HOU
NO @ ARI NO NO ARI
TEN @ DAL DAL DAL DAL
SD @ OAK SD SD SD
PHI @ SF SF PHI SF
MIN @ NYJ MIN MIN MIN

Upset of the Week: I’ve got a few upsets this week, some of them awkwardly arent officially upsets though (Buf over Jax, SF over Phil) so I wont show them off. NYG over HOU in houston. Yeah, thats right. I think the Giants defense will perform well against the injury-riddled Texans offense. Arian Foster will be a problem, but less of one without the passing game to support it. Eli Manning performs well against a tragic Houston secondary and with Nicks, Smith and Manningham, the Giants pull out a win.

Lock of the Week: Yeah, I’m going to say it. I know that I shouldn’t because there are better locks.. but I pick the Cowboys over the Titans. The only threatening part of the TEN offense is C. Johnson, and when the RB is the only factor on either side of the ball, he becomes easier to stop. Sure, he still picks up close to 100 and probably a score, but only 7 points on the board is not enough to take out the Dallas offense, which looks to be returning to its elite status.
