NFL Picks, Week 5
October 3, 2012 - Zach Baker
Another week in the NFL picks, another week with me likely going off on Twitter and calling the Browns losers just because I'm tired of not winning. At this point I'm taking a "fire 'em all" approach to my favorite team. Shouldn't have to wait to see that become a reality.
Onto the picks Thursday
Arizona Cardinals at St. Louis Rams
Zach's Pick: Rams
Zach's Thought: Cardinals have become a thrilling team to watch, but I predict we'll hear a thud Thursday night.
Sunday Miami Dolphins at Cincinnati Bengals
Zach's pick: Bengals
Zach's Thought: The toughness of the Bengals schedule amazes me.
Green Bay Packers at Indianapolis Colts
Zach's Pick: Packers
Zach's Thought: Tough week for Indianapolis; all the best to coach Chuck Pagano.
Baltimore Ravens at Kansas City Chiefs
Zach's Pick: Ravens
Zach's Thought: Line of the week goes to my brother: "Romeo Crennel has to be living in deja vu. People want to replace his starting quarterback with Brady Quinn."
Cleveland Browns at New YorkGiants
Zach's Pick: Giants
Zach's Thought: I expect Browns to hang in there and lose late. You know, like always.
Philadelphia Eagles at Pittsburgh Steelers
Zach's Pick: Steelers.
Zach's thought: All is not lost with the football season if the Steelers fall to 1-3.
Atlanta Falcons at Washington Redskins
Zach's Pick: Falcons.
Zach's Thought: Definitely a shot for an upset here, but I'll play it safe.
Seattle Seahawks at Carolina Panthers
Zach's Pick: Panthers.
Zach's thought: When you really think about it, Pete Carroll's run in Seattle has been something less than awesome.
Chicago Bears at Jacksonville Jaguars
Zach's Pick: Bears
Zach's Thought: If there's any hope for Jacksonville, I don't see it.
Tennessee Titans at Minnesota Vikings
Zach's Pick: Vikings
Zach's Thought: I like the way the Vikings are playing. Good defense, solid run game.
Denver Broncos at New England Patriots
Zach's Pick: Patriots
Zach's Thought: We'll probably have to watch this game because it's Brady vs. Manning, but it just doesn't hold much interest for me.
Buffalo Bills at San Francisco 49ers
Zach's Pick: 49ers
Zach's Thought: Bills defense was awful last week. Made me feel worse since the Browns managed all of 14 points off it the week before.
San Diego Chargers at New Orleans Saints
Zach's Pick: Saints
Zach's Thought: We all just keep thinking Saints will snap out of it.
Monday Houston Texans at New York Jets
Zach's Pick: Texans.
Zach's Thought: Look out below, Jets fans.
Last Week: 10-6.
