Music City Miracles: Week 5 Picks

New, comments

Give us your picks, too!

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Let’s do this.

Titans over the Bills

Uh, I mean Bills over Titans. Yeah, that’s it. Usually when I pick against Tennessee they win.

Bengals over the Dolphins

Both of these teams played polar opposites last week, and while I expect Miami to play a lot better this week, I think Cincinnati’a home field advantage gives them the edge.

Ravens over the Browns

I expect Baker Mayfield to throw a couple of interceptions against a tough Ravens defense. It happens for rookies.

Packers over the Lions (upset)

Even with a 50% Aaron Rodgers, I don’t see Green Bay losing this one to Detroit, who I had winning before today.

Chiefs over the Jaguars

The #1 offense against the #1 defense. Since the Chiefs are at home I give them the edge.

Broncos over the Jets (upset)

ESPN currently has the Jets at -1.0, so yes this is technically an upset pick. Then again the change in altitude might play against the Broncos.

Steelers over the Falcons

Atlanta’s defense is without Grady Jarrett, Keanu Neal, Deion Jones and Ricardo Allen. NO excuse for the Steelers if they lose this one.

Panthers over the Giants

Norv Turner has been surprisingly good as the Panthers’ offensive coordinator, and against a weak Giants defense at home I expect that to continue.

Chargers over the Raiders

Despite playing on the road at home, the Chargers should take this one.

Eagles over the Vikings

Philadelphia’s offensive line has sucked this season, but I see the defense and Wentz doing just enough to get by a Vikings team whose offensive and secondary are also brutal.

Cardinals over the 49ers (upset)

Josh Rosen was excellent last week, so I expect his receivers to actually catch the ball this time and secure Arizona’s first win of the season.

Rams over the Seahawks

-7.5 spread.

Texans over the Cowboys

Dallas’ offense showed life against the Lions last week, but let’s see if that’ll continue against J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney on Sunday night.

Saints over the Redskins

I’m looking forward to seeing the Saints offensive line facing off against the Redskins’ defensive line, as well as Drew Brees potentially breaking more records.
