NFL Week 5 Picks and Power Rankings

Week 5 is already here. Tonight the undefeated Cardinals travel to St. Louis to take on Sam Bradford and the Rams. Plenty of good games this week. Tom Brady and Peyton Manning meet again as Denver travels to New England, Drew Brees and the Saints look for win #1 against his former team, the Battle of Pennsylvania takes place between the Steelers and Eagles and Matty Ice and the Falcons take on RGIII and the Skins. Lets get right to the picks!

Thursday Night Football:
Arizona Cardinals at St. Louis Rams
Upset Special! The Rams win this one at home. The Cardinals get loss #1. It is a short week, the Rams are not so bad, I think they can pull this off.

Sunday:
Philadelphia Eagles at Pittsburgh Steelers
I like Pittsburgh coming off the BYE. Defense is healthy finally, the Eagles make too many mistakes and the Steelers will take advantage of that.

Green Bay Packers at Indianapolis Colts
Luck vs. Rodgers could one day be a Super Bowl match-up, but the rookie will have a hard time out-slinging Rodgers this Sunday. Could be a shootout though.

Cleveland Browns at New York Giants
The Browns have looked pretty good for an (0-4) team. They will cause some trouble for the Giants. Expect it to be close.

Atlanta Falcons at Washington Redskins
This is a tough pick for me. I think the Skins have a chance, but it will have to be high scoring. They won't be able to stop the Falcons offense.

Miami Dolphins at Cincinnati Bengals
I like Miami in this game, but the Bengals at home will pull off the win. Probably in overtime. Haha.

Baltimore Ravens at Kansas City Chiefs
I am taking the Ravens, but this is a toss up. The Chiefs play good or bad each week. If the good team shows up, they can beat the Ravens.

Seattle Seahawks at Carolina Panthers
Cam Newton got back on track last week, despite the loss. The Panthers have to win sometime.

Chicago Bears at Jacksonville Jaguars
DA BEARS.

GAME OF THE WEEK:
Denver Broncos
at New England Patriots
Love it! Peyton Manning. Tom Brady. Just like the good ole days. Except this time Peyton is a Bronco. Can the Patriots really lose 2 straight home games? Unlikely, but the Broncos would like to win after getting blown out and eliminated from the Playoffs last year in New England. This time they have a quarterback who can get them the win. Broncos by 3.

Buffalo Bills at San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers blew out the Jets, the Jets blew out the Bills, thus the 49ers will super blow out the Bills? Sports logic doesn't work like that, but San Francisco is a lock this week.

Tennessee Titans at Minnesota Vikings
I like Matt Hasselbeck. I think him starting helps the Titans. They get an impressive road win in Minnesota.

Sunday Night Football:
San Diego Chargers at New Orleans Saints
The Saints have to win once. Come on. This is getting out of control. The Chargers are good, but the Saints have to win. I can't see them (0-5).

Monday Night Football:

Houston Texans at New York Jets
Okay, lets go over this. The Texans are #1 in my Power Rankings.
(4-0), just beat the Titans with ease. The Jets just lost 34-0 to the 49ers and have also lost Darrelle Revis and Santonio Holmes for the season. The Jets have no offensive weapons, the Texans have a great defense, the Jets can't stop the run, Houston has a great running game, etc. You know what all this means. Jets by 3.

POWER RANKINGS:
1. Houston Texans (4-0)
2. San Francisco 49ers (3-1)
3. Baltimore Ravens (3-1)
4. Atlanta Falcons (4-0)
5. New York Giants (3-1)
6. Arizona Cardinals (4-0)
7. Green Bay Packers (2-2)
8. Denver Broncos (2-2)
9. New England Patriots (2-2)
10. Chicago Bears (3-1)

Teams that dropped out of the Top 10:
-New York Jets (#10 last week) and they are never coming back. Haha.
