The Greg One’s Week 5 picks

By thegregone

After the best week of the prognosticating season, your friend The Greg One looks to improve on last week’s 12-4 record from last week. Best prediction of last week, the monday night game Indianapolis at Tampa Bay. My prediction was Tampa wins 23-17. Actual result, Tampa wins 24-17! This week the byes begin but the double digit win total is still expected. Here are this week’s winners.

Philadelphia at BuffaloEvery week I pick the Eagles to win they lose it seems. The Bills have surprised everyone only to choke against Cincinnati last week, blowing my eliminator pick in the process. I pick the Eagles to win out of spite, 27-23.

New Orleans at CarolinaGood ole fashioned shootout ends with Saints win, 37-30.

Oakland at HoustonRaiders will either play inspired after the passing of Al Davis yesterday or play flat, unable to play and grieve at the same time. Rest in peace Al. Raiders still lose 28-20.

Kansas City at IndianapolisEvery week my upset special team has the lead late in the fourth quarter only to lose in the final three minutes, including the Colts two weeks ago. I go back to the well one more time and say Colts win 23-16.

Cincinnati at JacksonvilleThis week’s stupor bowl has the Jaguars winning 17-13.

Arizona at MinnesotaMinnesota finds a way to win despite lousy quarterback play. Defense plays huge part in Vikings 24-21 win.

Seattle at NY GiantsGiants defense make Tavaris Jackson wish for his college days. Giants win 31-9.

Tennessee at PittsburghImproved Titans take the fight to depleted Steelers and win 24-17.

Tampa Bay at San FranciscoHard for me to pick San Francisco to win any game but they’re doing something right. Above average defense manages to control Blount and Tampa offense. San Fran wins 26-23.

San Diego at DenverChargers will pick up where the left off in last season’s finale against Broncos resulting in 33-23 win.

NY Jets at New EnglandStill not a believer in Mark Sanchez as a top quarterback. Brady scorches Jets 37-17.

Green Bay at AtlantaGreen Bay still has Atlanta’s number. Packers win 36-21.

Chicago at DetroitDetroit 5-0? I am a believer. Detroit wins 31-16.
