NFL WEEK FIVE PICKS

Finally, I’m making some ground on Josh. A game, but its ground!

Brett was the only one with an over .500 record on the week.

Big surprises to us and games that that stumped us all was the Bills shutting out the Patriots, the Falcons defeating the Panthers and the Lions falling to the Bears. Also the Rams pulling out a win over Arizona make all four writers take an L.

I do have to brag a bit and say, there was no more “In Chip we Trust” as I was the only writer to take the Cowboys this week. Like I said before, I will never take the Cowgirls, but if its the Cowgirls and Chip Kelly, the Cowgirls are the lesser of two evils.

Overall Records:
Zach (3 Weeks): 
Last week: 7-8 (Overall: 25-20)
Josh (3 Weeks): Last week: 6-9 (Overall: 27-18)
Dan (2 Weeks): Last week: 6-9 (Overall: 12-18)
Randy (2 Weeks): Last week: 2-0 (Overall: 6-10)
Brett (2 Weeks): 
Last week: 9-6 (Overall: 17-13)


This Week’s Predictions

Thursday’s Game

Arizona Cardinals (1-3) at San Francisco 49ers (1-3)
8:25 p.m. at Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara, CA
TV: CBS
Spread: ARI -3.5

Zach: Arizona, 21-3
Josh:
Arizona, 23-20
Dan:
Arizona 22-16
Brett: 
Arizona 24-17

Zach Note: Chip Kelly is going to run the 49ers into the ground, just like he did with the Eagles. I hope even though Carson Palmer isn’t playing, the Cardinals can find a way to win.


Sunday’s Games

Zach Note: Tom Brady is back. Bill Belichick is an angry man, after getting shut out last week. This should be the week that Gronk goes nuts (for the love of God, my fantasy team hopes so). New England is going to trash the Browns.

Zach note: This is going to be fantastic game. Both Atlanta and Denver are fantastic teams. The Falcons, fresh off a great win over Carolina (48-33) and the Broncos are fresh off a win over the Buccaneers (27-7). I’m sure your fantasy team would love to see Matt Ryan and Julio connect again. Luckily, my team isn’t playing the two teams that have the stud players.
