Week 5 NFL Picks

Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions
Take the Bears and the points
DePaoli’s Pick – Chicago
Atlanta Falcons at Green Bay Packers
Aaron Rogers is questionable. This is a winnable game for Atlanta who will look to pound the ball between the tackles. Still, look for Green Bay to win a close one
DePaoli’s pick: Green Bay
San Diego Chargers at Miami Dolphins
First the Patriots, now the Chargers. Can the Dolphins do it again? The Chargers are not playing their best ball. Miami will have to win by running the ball effectively. Miami’s D comes up big against Rivers & CO. Dolphins 24-23
DePaoli’s pick: Miami
Seattle Seahawks at New York Giants
Seattle has had difficulties going across the country. Look for today to be no different
DePaoli’s pick: New York
Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles
One of the toughest games to pick this week. Washington is playing their best ball of the season. They went into Dallas and took care of business and they will look to do the same today against the Eagles. At 2-2 Philadelphia needs this win.
DePaoli’s pick: Philadelphia

Kansas City Chiefs at Carolina Panthers
The Chiefs found their running game last week. Larry Johnson was dominant rushing for 198 yards & 2Td’s. The Chiefs will need an encore this week
DePaoli’s pick: Carolina
Tennessee Titans at Baltimore Ravens
The Ravens are coming off of a short week to face the 4-0 Titans. This will be a physical game that will go down to the wire. The Ravens showed last week they can play with the AFC’s best and Joe Flacco gained some confidence from Monday’s night’s loss
DePaoli’s Pick: Upset of the week – Baltimore
Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans
The Colts (1-2) must establish their aerial attack early and often on the Texans. The Colts also need Joseph Addai to get going
DePaoli’s pick: Indy
Denver Broncos at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Broncos are coming off a embarrassing loss to the K.C. Chiefs while the Bucs are coming off of a big win against the Packers. Another very tough game to pick. I like the Bucs in a close one
DePaoli’s Pick: Tampa Bay
Cincinnati Bengals at Dallas Cowboys
Dallas in a rout. Will Chad Johnson kiss the Dallas Star?
DePaoli’s pick: Dallas
Buffalo Bills at Arizona Cardinals
The 4-0 Bills head to Arizona in what won’t be an easy game. The pressure is on Kurt Warner to rebound from last Sunday’s game. Cards 28-24
DePaoli’s pick: Arizona
New England Patriots at San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers took a step backward last week. The Patriots will look to blitz early and often against the 49ers shaky offensive line
DePaoli’s pick: New England Patriots
Pittsburgh Steelers vs Jacksonville Jaguars
Pittsburgh has their backs against the wall in this one. No Willie Parker and No Casey Hampton again. The Jaguars on the other hand have been hit hard by injuries and are not playing at the level they were last season. After watching the tape from last year’s playoff loss, Pittsburgh needs to-go-to the no huddle and use short quick throws on the Jaguars D. They are vulnerable. For some reason I like Pittsburgh in a very close one that will go down to the wire. This time Pittsburgh will come out on top
DePaoli’s pick: Pittsburgh 17-13
Minnesota Vikings at New Orleans Saints
The Saints are a tough read. One week they look like a super bowl contender, the next week they look like a borderline playoff team. Playing on Monday night at home, they will take care of the Vikings
DePaoli’s pick: New Orleans
Last week 9-4
Season: 40-20
