The week 5 NFL picks are here, and this is a summation of this week’s games. These week 5 NFL picks include a Kansas City vs. Indianapolis game that will prove if the Chiefs are for real, and a test for the Green Bay defense against Washington. Both of those games take place on Sunday.
The Sunday night game on NBC is Philadelphia vs. San Francisco, matching up two teams that have now lost their identity. This is a Philadelphia Eagles team that looked great with Michael Vick as the quarterback, but which might find more struggles with Vick hurt. Look for San Francisco to possibly get their first win of the season on Sunday night. Kolb is the starting quarterback this time for the Eagles, so the team could look much different Sunday.
The Monday night game is also going to be a really exciting one, with Minnesota vs. New York Jets as a marquee match-up for ESPN. Both teams are looking to impress a national audience, but the Vikings need this game more than the Jets. Still, it is going to be one of those ultra-competitive NFL games that come down to the end of the fourth quarter to decide which defense can hold down the opposing quarterback.
There may not be quite as many great storylines heading into week 5 of the 2010 NFL schedule, but sometimes those are the weeks where the best stories emerge when the dust has settled. There is definitely going to be an upset or two on Sunday, but which games will the favored team come up short? This week could be a bumpy ride for quite a few teams trying to prove that they belong at the top of their division standings this year.
