JG's Week 5 Picks

Washington (+4) @Carolina- Although the Panthers are 0-3 and the Skins are .500, the Redskins have looked horrible. Their two wins are by a combined five points over winless teams. The Panthers win this one with ease coming off of a bye.

Panters 24- Redskins 16

Dallsas (-7.5) @Kansas City-The Cowboys laid an egg last week vs. the Broncos. This week, the only egg laid is a golden one, as America's team lays one on the Chiefs.

Cowboys 31- Chiefs 14

Raiders (+15.5) @New York Giants- Eli Manning is a question mark with foot issues and 15.5 is a whole lot of points. The Giants win this one but fail to cover.

Giants 24- Raiders 10

Pittsburgh (-10.5) @Detroit- The Men of Steel dodged a late chargers comeback to get back on track. Matt Stafford cannot go, meaning that DAUNTE CULPEPPER gets the start. Sadly for the Lions Daunte does not get the roll going today. Pittsburgh dominates Detroit and caps off a tough week for a city that saw their baseball team blow a 3 game lead with 4 to play.

Steelers 27- Lions 14

Cleveland (+6) @Buffalo- Buffalo looked helpless against a subpar Dolphins team. That being said, the Browns are a serious mess right now and look like the worst team in the National Football League

Bills 20- Browns 13

Minnesota (-10) @St Louis- Last year, this game would have looked like a sure let down for the Vikings coming off of an emotional Monday night victory. With #4 at the helm though, he will keep the guys focused and in great shape for a blowout win over the Rams. It will also be his first victory in his 40s.

Vikings 23- Rams 10

Tampa Bay (+15.5) @Philadelphia- 15.5 points may seem like a lot, but after watching an entire game of the Tampa Bay Bucs, it does not seem like nearly enough. Their Josh Johnson lead offense could only muster 13 points against a mediocre Redskins D, when the Skins offense turned it over 4 times. The Iggles take care of business.

Eagles 34- Buccaneers 14

Atlanta (+2.5) @San Francisco- The 49ers sixth ranked defense will try to stop Matt Ryan, Tony Gonzalez, and crew. Mike Singletary has his team playing tough, but I believe today the Falcons will have success going vertical on San Francisco's secondary. Take the Falcons in the straight up win.

Falcons 28- 49ers 27

New England (-3) @Denver- This is a classic matchup of pupil vs teacher. The Broncos may be 4-0, but the 3-1 Pats are the far supperior team. Bill Belichick shows Josh McDaniels exactly how to run a football team.

Patriots 24- Broncos 20

Jacksonville (+1.5) @Seattle- Jacksonville makes about the longest possible road trip a team can make. The Hawks get their team leader and quarterback back to win a close one but still cover in the Emerald City.

Seahawks 27- Jaguars 24

Houston (+5.5) @Arizona- This is going to be an absolute barn burner. Two stud offenses take on two sub par defenses. Matt Schaub and Kurt Warner both have great days. In a high scoring affair the Cardinals take it.

Cardinals 38- Texans 31

Indinapolis (-4) @Tennessee- Each week I have said that this would be the one the Titans finally turn it around. Sadly for old man Collins and the Titans, this will not be the week. Peyton gets the job done on NBC.

Colts 24- Titans 17

In Week 5 I see a lot of favorites covering...part of me wants to see some dogs for a gret day of football.
