NFL Week 5 Predictions

Big Ben and the Steelers face off agains the Eagles on Sunday.  Will they be able to shut
 down the Eagles, or will Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy get the better of them?

Cardinals vs. Rams: 23-17 Cardinals

Despite how poorly the Cardinals played last week, I can't see them losing their first game to the St. Louis Rams. Even if Arizona's offense doesn't show up until late, their defense should do a good enough job shutting down Sam Bradford and the Rams' offense. Cardinals in a fairly close one.

Browns vs. Giants: 31-9 Giants

This one shouldn't be close. The Giants defense will make it hell for Brandon Weeden all day long. On the other end, Eli and the Giants' offense should be able to bounce back strong after a tough loss to Philadelphia.

Dolphins vs. Bengals: 24-20 Bengals

The Bengals have looked surprisingly impressive with a quarter of the season finished. Now, they will be able to enjoy four of their next five games at home, starting with a win against the 'Fins.

Packers vs. Colts: 35-24 Packers

The Colts' D is no match for Aaron Rodgers and Co. Andrew Luck will struggle in the game, but still manage to get some garbage yards and touchdowns.

Ravens vs. Chiefs: 27-16 Ravens

The Ravens will pull out of the gate early in this one, allowing the Chiefs to run their usual play from behind offense. Expect 100 yard games from Ray Rice and Jamaal Charles.

Eagles vs. Steelers: 27-20 Steelers

Mike Tomlin has only lost one time following a bye week. The Steelers will come out prepared and ready to shut down the 3-1 Eagles.

Falcons vs. Redskins: 27-18 Falcons

Despite RG3's success so far, the Redskins and he are no match for Matt Ryan and the Falcons. This game has the potential to turn into a shootout, but the Falcons will take it in the end.

Seahawks vs. Panthers: 20-13 Panthers

I think the Seahawks will do a decent job shutting down the Panthers offense, but won't manage to score enough points to beat them. The Panthers nearly beat the Falcons last week, and should be hungry to make up for that loss.

Bears vs. Jaguars: 29-12 Bears

The Bears are set to demolish the Jaguars on Sunday afternoon. After picking off Tony Romo five times, who knows how many times they will sack Blaine Gabbert?

Titans vs. Vikings: 28-24 Vikings

Not going to lie, the Vikings have looked fantastic this season. On the other hand, the Titans have looked miserable. Vikings continue their hotness with another win at home.

Broncos vs. Patriots: 35-31 Patriots

Manning vs. Brady. Boy, does it feel good to be able to watch this classic matchup again. Unfortunately for Peyton and the Broncos, the Patriots will win this barnburner at home by less than a touchdown.

Bills vs. Niners: 27-13 Niners

The Bills' defense has been absolute crap in the four games they've played so far. They've given up 40+ points to the Jets and Patriots. The Niners, on the other hand, have a phenomenal defense and just last week shut out the Jets 34-0. Niners breeze through this one.

Chargers vs. Saints: 38-27 Saints

I do it every week so what else is new? Saints are going to get their first win of the season with Sean Payton watching in the Superdome.

Texans vs. Jets: 32-10 Texans

Quite frankly, I don't care what happens in this game as long as Tebow takes over at quarterback. It's still an extremely safe bet to take the Texans by over a touchdown on Monday night though.
