Week 5 NFL predictions and picks come from the Week 5 NFL schedule. Week 5 NFL predictions and picks begin with Green Bay vs. Washington in a very interesting NFC battle at 1 p.m. ET. The Kansas City Chiefs will also take their undefeated record to Indianapolis and play a Colts team that doesn’t look nearly as good as they did during the 2009 NFL season.
The Sunday afternoon game that could end up being extremely interesting is Tennessee vs. Dallas, where two teams that really need a week 5 win are going to battle it out down in Texas. Vince Young and Chris Johnson are going to have to come up huge against a Cowboys defense that is fresh off a very nice win this past week. Tony Romo is also in the flow of things now, so he may be a hot quarterback to watch in fantasy football this week.
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.
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.
It is going to definitely be an interesting week in the NFL, and again we have a number of games where there appears to be a clear favorite on paper, but which could lead to yet more upsets. The 2010 NFL schedule has not gone according to plan by any means, and that’s why we should simply plan on there being even more upsets this upcoming week.
