NFL Week 5 Predictions

Usually by week 4, I have a pretty good idea of who will be trending up and trending down in the NFL, but I’m honestly still confused on some teams. The Colts lost to the Raiders, yet they beat the Chargers. The Ravens fired quickly out of the gate, but they now find themselves at just .500 after a loss to the Browns. The Buccaneers decimated the Rams defense by scoring 55 points, and the Bears showed you don’t need much offense if your defense is that good. There are still plenty of question marks in the NFL, but at least there is some semblance of order. Anyway, here are my week five picks. I haven’t had a week anywhere near comparable to week one’s success, but here’s to hoping for the best! Check out my picks below:
