Week 5 NFL Picks

A little bit of a theme this week--winless teams getting their first W. We'll see how it goes.

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

The Bills have come close a couple times. They're not good but they're not bad enough to go winless either and the Jags just aren't that good. The game's in Buffalo, so here winless team with a win #1. Trevor's Pick: Bills 20-16

New York Giants (2-2) @ Houston Texans (3-1)
The Giants defense looked great against the Bears, but I'm still not buying them. I think the Bears were exposed more than anything, and I don't mean they took their towels off.
Trevor's Pick: Texans 27-13

Kansas City Chiefs (3-0) @ Indianapolis Colts (2-2)
Hope the Chiefs enjoyed one extra week of being undefeated with their bye, because that all ends this week. The Colts have to be a little pissed about being 2-2 and this game is in Indy.
Trevor's Pick: Colts 31-13

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-1) @ Cincinnati Bengals (2-2)
I have no idea what to expect from the Bengals anymore, but I do know the Bucs aren't really that good. Glad they got a couple wins early so they could be relevant into week 5.
Trevor's Pick: Bengals 20-10

Green Bay Packers (3-1) @ Washington Redskins (2-2)
This might be the game of the week. Two good teams, both with significant weaknesses. When in doubt, pick the team you want to lose.
Trevor's Pick: Packers 24-23

St. Louis Rams (2-2) @ Detroit Lions (0-4)
Sam Bradford has been tight so far. Matthew Stafford's not back yet. The Lions are too much improved to keep losing every game.
Trevor's Pick: Lions 28-19

Chicago Bears (3-1) @ Carolina Panthers (0-4)
After watching the Bears line I don't know how to pick them. Mike Martz is stubborn and I'm not sure he'll make the adjustments necessary to plug the holes.
Trevor's Pick: Panthers 16-10

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

Trevor's Pick: Falcons 24-12

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

Trevor's Pick: Ravens 23-19

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

Trevor's Pick: Saints 34-9

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

Trevor's Pick: Cowboys 20-13

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

Trevor's Pick: Chargers 25-13

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

Trevor's Pick: 49ers 16-14

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

Trevor's Pick: Jets 23-16
