NFL Week 5 Projections

Results:

Last Week: 9-5

This Year: 21-9

Bears Vs. Chiefs

The (1-3) Bears head to Kansas City looking to start a win streak. The Chiefs, who showed great promise at the beginning of the year, have lost 3 straight, falling to 1-3. The Chiefs know they have to win this game to get back into the playoff hunt, and they will.

Chiefs 27 – 13

Seahawks Vs. Bengals

The Bengals are undefeated. I don’t think too many people predicted that at the start of their season. The Seahawks are 2-2, and easily could have been 1-3 after last week’s narrow victory over the Lions. The Seahawks will end the Bengals undefeated run with great defensive play against Russell Wilson and company.

Seahawks 31 – 17

Redskins Vs. Falcons

Another surprising (4-0) team, the Falcons, hosts the (2-2) Washington Redskins. The Falcons barely used any energy in their stomping of the Texans last week, while Washington worked to the end to beat the Eagles. The Falcons look unbeatable right now and that should continue.

Falcons 30 – 16

Jaguars Vs. Buccaneers 

Two teams that have been bottom feeders for years square off on Sunday. The winner of this game will go to 2-3 and still have a chance to make some noise late in the season. I expect Jameis Winston to have his best start as a pro and for the Bucs to win a close game, coming off a poor slate of games.

Buccaneers 24 – 21

Saints Vs. Eagles

Drew Brees finally got the (1-3) Saints their first win of the year. The (1-3) Eagles continue to struggle after yet another loss to a division foe. With the NFC East wide open, the Eagles can get right back into the division race with a win. I expect the Eagles to win a close game as the Saints fall to 1-4, dooming their season.

Eagles 24 – 21

Browns Vs. Ravens

The (1-3) Ravens showed great fight in their come from behind win in Pittsburgh last week. The (1-3) Browns came up just short again, losing to the Chargers. I expect a high scoring day, with Duke Johnson getting into the end zone twice. However, I believe Justin Tucker hits his second straight game winner.

Ravens 33 – 30

Rams Vs. Packers

The (2-2) Rams went into Arizona and stunned the Cardinals. The (4-0) Packers continued to cruise with an easy win in the Bay. The Rams will actually keep this game close, and will even force Aaron Rodger to throw a home interception, but at the end of the day, the Packers will remain undefeated.

Packers 24 – 13

Bills Vs. Titans

4 weeks into the season, and the (2-2) Buffalo Bills have already put their fans through an emotional roller coaster. They’ve looked like Super Bowl contenders one week, and the same old Bills the next. Now, they travel to Nashville to face Marcus Marriota and the (1-2) Titans. The Bills will win, but barely, and with a scrappy defensive performance.

Bills 24 – 23 

Cardinals Vs. Lions

The Lions appear to be the unluckiest team in the NFL this year. They currently sit at 0-4, but easily could be 2-2 or even 3-1. Now they host the 3-1 Cardinals who look to bounce back from a defeat last week. Unfortunately for the Lions, Carson Palmer is going to torch their weak secondary.

Cardinals 27 – 21

Patriots Vs. Cowboys

The (3-0) Patriots head to Jerry World to face the (2-2) Cowboys. The Cowboys might struggle to put together a roster with all of the injuries they have. Tom Brady looks unstoppable, and I don’t expect the Patriots to slow down as they embarrass the ‘Boys at home.

Patriots 37 – 20

Broncos Vs. Raiders

Peyton Manning and the undefeated Broncos head to Oakland to face the surprising (2-2) Raiders. The Black Hole will be fired up for this game. Derek Carr will lead the Raiders offense multiple times to touchdowns as they get their biggest win in years and move to 3-2.

Raiders 27 – 23

49ers Vs. Giants (SNF)

The struggling (1-3) Niners look to end a 3 game losing streak as they travel to face Eli Manning and the (2-2) Giants. The Giants have won 2 straight and look like the favorites to win the NFC East at the quarter mark in the season. However, I believe the Niners will run the ball with authority and win this game on the road under the primetime lights.

49ers 27 – 21

Steelers Vs. Chargers (MNF)

The (2-2) Steelers look to respond after throwing away a double digit lead last week against the Ravens. Meanwhile, The (2-2) Chargers look to start a winning streak after beating the Browns. I expect Phillip Rivers to have 300 yards and 2 touchdowns as he leads the Chargers to victory.

Chargers 24 – 13
