NFL Week 5 Game Picks

The Musket Fire staff are putting on our prognostication hats, staring into the Musket Fire crystal ball, and predicting the winners each week throughout the NFL season. Contributing writer Ryan Hannable and I are making the game picks, so feel free to pick against us in the Comments section. Last week, I was 13-3 in my picks, pushing my record to 44-19 on the season, while Ryan was 12-4 last week, pushing his record to 21-11 on the season.

Let’s get right to the picks from Ryan and I, including our Patriots-Jets prediction…

Philadelphia Eagles at Buffalo Bills

Oakland Raiders at Houston Texans

Kansas City Chiefs at Indianapolis Colts

Cincinnati Bengals at Jacksonville Jaguars

Arizona Cardinals at Minnesota Vikings

Seattle Seahawks at New York Giants

Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions

New York Jets at New England Patriots

Put It In The Bank
  • JP & RH: Saints over the Panthers. The Saints are starting to come together and find their identity. The are one of the early Super Bowl favorites. While Cam Newton and the Panthers have impressed, I don’t think they are good enough to beat the powerful Saints. (RH)
Upset Special
  • JP: Bills over the Eagles. The Eagles are reeling, and the Bills have the running back in Fred Jackson to run over the Eagles.
  • RH: Falcons over the Packers. While the Packers come in undefeated and the Falcons 2-2, the Falcons record is worse than they really are. The Falcons are a good team and play well at home so I expect them to pull off the upset.
