PFT’s Week Five picks

AP

Last week’s picks contest wasn’t much fun, because MDS and I agreed on every game. This week, it will be a little more fun, because we disagree on two games.

And it will be even more fun if I retain my one-game lead. For the year, I’m at 41-22 (65.1 percent) and MDS has a record of 40-23 (63.5 percent).

For all picks on this weekend’s slate of 14 games, scroll and read, read and scroll.

Colts at Texans

MDS’s take: Andrew Luck and Ryan Mallett have the two lowest passer ratings of all starting quarterbacks in the NFL. Luck, however, has a much better chance of turning things around. This will be an ugly game, but the Colts will play well enough on the road to strengthen their hold on the AFC South.

MDS’s pick: Colts 17, Texans 14.

Florio’s take: Who’s the quarterback going to be? Who knows? And who cares? Texans have their backs against the wall, and they’re good enough to win this game at home.

Florio’s pick: Texans 24, Colts 16.

Washington at Falcons

MDS’s take: Washington’s defense is better than people realize, but the weakness of that defense is in the secondary, and that’s just the weakness for the Falcons to exploit with Matt Ryan throwing to Julio Jones. Atlanta will put a lot of points on the board and Kirk Cousins will throw a couple interceptions as the Falcons cruise.

MDS’s pick: Falcons 31, Washington 14.

Florio’s take: Week Five often becomes Correction Sunday, or what I’ve now decided to call Pothole Sunday, the day when a team that has been rolling through the early portion of the schedule drives unexpectedly into a large chunk of missing asphalt. With Washington better than most (including me) would admit, the 4-0 Falcons could find themselves 4-1 by the time 4:30 p.m. ET rolls around on Sunday. If this one were being played in Washington, I’d perhaps have the guts to call for the upset.

Florio’s pick: Falcons 30, Washington 24.

Browns at Ravens

MDS’s take: The Ravens have a lot of issues and look to me like a team destined to miss the playoffs for just the second time in John Harbaugh’s tenure as head coach. But they’ll get a reprieve on Sunday with a bad Browns team coming to town.

MDS’s pick: Ravens 23, Browns 16.

Florio’s take: The Ravens have extra rest and even more motivation to get their first home win of the season and scratch back toward .500. The Browns simply aren’t good enough to do in Baltimore what the other Ohio team did there.

Florio’s pick: Ravens 24, Browns 14.

Seahawks at Bengals

MDS’s take: This is the most intriguing game of the week for me because I’m still not sure what to make of the Seahawks. They seem to be turning things around since the return of Kam Chancellor, but they’re also a bad call away from a likely 1-3 record. At Cincinnati, one of the best teams in the league, I think Seattle will lose its third game of the season.

MDS’s pick: Bengals 24, Seahawks 21.

Florio’s take: Arguably the game of the day, it’s a chance for the Bengals to quiet those who think they can’t win in January. The Seahawks need to get on the right side of .500, but their early-season road schedule continues to work against them. The Bengals currently are the better team on both sides of the ball.

Florio’s pick: Bengals 22, Seahawks 17.

Rams at Packers

MDS’s take: The Rams have a knack for playing their best football against their toughest opponents. But a trip to Lambeau Field against Aaron Rodgers will be too tough a test even for the Rams’ impressive defense, and the Packers will take this one.

MDS’s pick: Packers 28, Rams 20.

Florio’s take: The up-and-down Rams are good enough to beat most teams. They’re not yet good enough to beat the Packers in Green Bay, even though the Rams can give them a run for their money.

Florio’s pick: Packers 27, Rams 24.

Bears at Chiefs

MDS’s take: Jay Cutler has played better this season than people are giving him credit for, and when he’s healthy the Bears aren’t as bad a team as people think. So I’m tempted to pick the Bears here. But I’m expecting Andy Reid to get his offense back on track on Sunday and the Chiefs to pull out a close one.

MDS’s pick: Chiefs 24, Bears 21.

Florio’s take: The Bears don’t have to worry about going winless. Which will make it easier for them to stomach Sunday’s trip to Arrowhead Stadium. Meanwhile, it the Chiefs can’t win this one and land at 1-4, they’re done.

Florio’s pick: Chiefs 30, Bears 20.

Saints at Eagles

MDS’s take: The Eagles’ offense has been a mess this season, but the Saints’ defense has been a mess, too. I like the Eagles to move the ball a lot against New Orleans.

MDS’s pick: Eagles 31, Saints 21.

Florio’s take: Two years ago, the Saints ended Philly’s season with the first road playoff win in franchise history. This time, the Saints could end Philly’s season as a practical matter. I can’t imagine that happening; if just a handful of plays had gone the other way in Washington, the Eagles would have won easily.

Florio’s pick: Eagles 27, Saints 20.

Jaguars at Buccaneers

MDS’s take: The NFL teams in Florida are all pretty terrible this year, but if there’s one showing some signs of life, it’s Jacksonville. Jameis Winston will be forced into multiple turnovers as the Jags win a close one.

MDS’s pick: Jaguars 13, Buccaneers 10.

Florio’s take: The Bucs haven’t won a home game in a long, long time. If they don’t win this one against Jacksonville, they may never win another home game again. Ever.

Florio’s pick: Buccaneers 20, Jaguars 17.

Bills at Titans

MDS’s take: Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota has exceeded expectations in the first three games of his NFL career, but the Bills’ defense is going to make life rough for him. This will be a difficult day for the rookie.

MDS’s pick: Bills 20, Titans 7.

Florio’s take: If the Bills can’t get this one done, they’re done. And even though they looked done against the Giants, I don’t think they’re done. And now I think I’m done.

Florio’s pick: Bills 27, Titans 17.

Cardinals at Lions

MDS’s take: The Lions may be a better team than their 0-4 record suggests, but they’re still not good enough to beat the Cardinals, whose deep passing game is going to be too much for Detroit’s secondary to handle.

MDS’s pick: Cardinals 28, Lions 17.

Florio’s take: Can the Lions forget about the screwing they took in Seattle and focus on a Cardinals team that can’t afford to lose two in a row? It’s not likely, especially since the offense can’t do much of anything.

Florio’s pick: Cardinals 24, Lions 13.

Patriots at Cowboys

MDS’s take: Brandon Weeden isn’t playing badly at all in relief of Tony Romo, but the Cowboys haven’t been able to win with him at quarterback. And they won’t win Sunday, with the best team in the NFL coming to town. This one could get ugly for Big D.

MDS’s pick: Patriots 38, Cowboys 14.

Florio’s take: It was supposed to be Tony Romo vs. Jimmy Garappolo. Instead, it’s Brandon Weeden vs. Tom Brady. They’re gonna need a bigger scoreboard.

Florio’s pick: Patriots 44, Cowboys 20.

Broncos at Raiders

MDS’s take: The Broncos’ defense is so relentless that Derek Carr is going to struggle all day long at getting the ball out before the rush arrives. Denver will improve to 5-0 and strengthen its grip on the AFC West.

MDS’s pick: Broncos 20, Raiders 10.

Florio’s take: Last week, the Raiders stepped into a trap in Chicago. This week, they step into a buzzsaw in their own backyard.

Florio’s pick:  Broncos 34, Raiders 21.

49ers at Giants

MDS’s take: The 49ers’ offense has been an absolute mess, and it’s hard to see an end in sight. The Giants will jump out to an early lead and shut down the 49ers.

MDS’s pick: Giants 16, 49ers 7.

Florio’s take: 49ers coach Jim Tomsula wants a “confident man” at quarterback. He’ll have to settle for Colin Kaepernick.

Florio’s pick: Giants 26, 49ers 14.

Steelers at Chargers

MDS’s take: If Ben Roethlisberger were playing, I’d pick the Steelers. With Michael Vick at the helm, I’m expecting Pittsburgh’s offense to struggle to move the ball. The Chargers haven’t been great this year in any phase of the game, but they’ll get enough out of their offense to beat the Steelers in a low-scoring game.

MDS’s pick: Chargers 14, Steelers 10.

Florio’s take: Flip a coin. Throw a dart. Light a match. The Steelers have extra rest and Martavis Bryant back. The Chargers are at home and have Antonio Gates back. The Chargers also have Philip Rivers and Steelers don’t have Ben Roethlisberger.

Florio’s pick: Chargers 28, Steelers 24.

  1. The Falcons always, ALWAYS crumble against the NFC East. They play in a Cupcake division and flex those popcorn muscles like they matter but ALWAYS choke vs the NFC East. Imagine, now they are facing the BEST of the division!

    With RGIII, Redskins by 24.
    Without RGIII Redskins by 10.

    Either way, Redskins win. Easy. #HTTR

  2. @t8ertot:

    I feel the same way. I hope people keep picking against us for the rest of the year. Spiller, Byrd, Lewis, and Ellerbe are all back now. We’re getting healthier by the week.

  3. Raiders 24
    Broncos 21

    Raiders Defense faces the worse Offense they’ll face all season, while Denver’s Defense faces a top 10 offense for the 1st time this season.

  4. The Bucs haven’t won a home game in a long, long time. If they don’t win this one against Jacksonville, they may never win another home game again. Ever.
    …or, until Lovie’s fired…

  5. I’m interested to see how the Bears do. In the past few years they have struggled mightily to string wins together. The struggles of the Chiefs have been well publicized but the Bears are one of those teams that struggling teams seem to suddenly get healthy against (e.g. Seahawks). They’re again serious underdogs and Arrowhead is no picnic but if they can harrass Alex Smith, keep Kelce and Jamaal Charles in check and establish a run game with a very patchwork OL, I think they have another upset in them.

  6. Florio, how does a win against a kind of bad Seattle team quiet critics about the Bengals’ ability to win in January? The Bengals have been “getting it done” during the regular season for the last few years. They choke in the playoffs. The choke in night games. Sure, getting a bye would get them to the second round, but no guarantee they still won’t choke. Now, if this was a night game against a good team (Patriots, Broncos, or Packers), that would go a long way to shutting down some of the criticism. But a daytime game at home against a struggling team? Eh. They’ve beaten 2 teams at .500 and 2 teams at .250. The Bengals have won 4 games, which is just 2 less than their 4 competitors have won, combined. Let’s not plan a parade yet.

  7. You both might be correct in your touting of a New England rout. But don’t you think that it might have been appropriate to mention Dallas gets two important defensive players back from suspension?

  8. Early this year I heard a lot of Skins fans making fun of the Falcons for picking up “dead beat ex Washington o-line men” in Chester and Polumbus..

    Well I here to tell you Skins fans, that both of them have contributed to Falcons offensive rankings, including time of possession (2nd), scoring (3rd), third down percentage (2nd), red zone offense (1st) and total offense (5th). Julio Jones is having a monster year with a league-best 38 receptions, and Devonte Freeman has tore it up running with 252 yards and 7 TD’s.

    Granted Polumbus was released and picked up by the Broncos.

    Your team is a mess that doesn’t understand how to use the talent you have.

    So come to the dome on Sunday and get a taste of this new Falcons defense. Kurt Cousins, your head coach, and you as fans will question everything (once again) about the direction Washington is headed!

    Good Luck Cousins

    LEGGO DirtyBirds!

  9. If the Bills come out on top over the Titans, then look for Sensabaugh, Wreh-Wilson and/or Poutasi to blame.

    —————————————————————

    It’s fair that people doubt them and I’m a Bengals fan. I haven’t seen a playoff win in 20 plus years. Hopefully this is the year.

  11. I laugh every week when Florio says the Seahawks are supposed to lose. Play with that underdog chip on your shoulder Seattle and keep winning. Go Hawks! 😏

    Do you expect both guys to play the majority of snaps on defense? Or will they have to ease into it until they are back in football shape?

    They are valid to keep doubting them, maybe win a playoff game and then we can talk.

  14. The Browns have not won in Baltimore since 2007. No reason to expect that will change this weekend.

    Ravens 33
    Browns 17

  15. Wow Florio, the Bengals might win but to say their better on both sides of the ball is crazy. Seattles defense has been doing their job. 3rd in scoring and 2nd in total yards allowed and that’s already playing GB at GB and not all the scrubs the Bengals beat already.

  16. Steelers should be able to outscore the Chargers, and Steelers defense is starting to play better. Steelers gave the game away last week, that won’t happen this week.

    —————

    They need to win a big game to start to silence the doubters. This is a big one. @Ravens was a great win.

    To truly silence the doubters Dalton needs to perform well in Dec and Jan, and I think he can.

  18. Easy does it Seattle Fans, the mans entitled to his own opinion on game pics….that being said the Hawks suck

  19. I just have a feeling that the Bengals are going to smash the Seahawks Sunday… You thought the Lions D looked tough? The Bengals defense is absolutely going to feast on that weak O-Line.

  20. I just kind of have this feeling that the 49ers and/or Raiders are in line for an “upset” type win this week.

    Nothing I’d put money on though, just a gut thing.

  21. The Bengals won’t quiet any critics until they win in the playoffs with Dalton. I’m not a hater, and I like them and think they will, but we’ve seen them win a lot of regular season games before.

  22. Is it already January? It’s only October. Let’s talk about the bengals and playoffs when it matters. Congrats to the Seahawks for barely beating the winless Lions when the refs handed you the game. Geno Atkins will have a field day.

  23. Seattle better get some turnovers or this game could get ugly for them. I expect the Bengals to win because they are more of a complete team. Doesn’t hurt the Hawks have a short week and have to fly 2400 miles east.

  24. Of course the Bengals will probably play well, the game is Sunday at 1 PM. They are near unstoppable when there are 7 other games going on at the same time

  25. What team are the Falcons playing this week? Is it the University of Washington? Washington High School? I think the readers need some specifics on the this.

  26. Seahawks haven’t lost by more than a TD since Russell Wilson became QB, with the exception of 2 games with last second FGs, so this will be a close game, it always is. The biggest factors are having to play a road game against an undefeated team at 10 AM on a short week. They should lose but if they win, the rest of the NFL is in trouble.

    When is the Bill’s defense going to live up to all the credit the media constantly gives them?

    =================
    Why would he mention them? They’re irrelevant, which one of them are going to cover Gronkowski or Edleman? Brady doesn’t hold on to the ball long enough for Hardy to get a sniff of a sack.
    These next two games for the Patriots are going to be blood baths.

  29. ” it’s a chance for the Bengals to quiet those who think they can’t win in January”

    No its not. Until they win at least 1 playoff game they remain a Marvin Lewis coached team with the same QB who wilts under playoff pressure.

  30. I’m flattered you both think the 49ers will somehow manage to score touchdowns. I guess a Hayne Plane punt return or the D pick-sixing Eli is a possibility. The Giants – by no means a good team – will win easily.

  31. Lions didnt get screwed by the refs. They werent victims. They played their brains out and came up short. The batted ball thing illustrated an obscure rule’s existence but it had no bearing on game play. Anyone saying otherwise is whining for a magic wipe-all to reverse the outcome of actual football.

    Staying with Seahawks, I see them as a top-5 team and better than the Bengals, but the Seahawks will almost certainly lose this weekend. Hawks are weeks away from finding their form, and Bengals are looking like the most talented roster in the league, and it goes down in Cincinnati.

    And its going to be one of the most boring games of the week. Packers Rams, Eagles Saints, Patriots Cowvoys, every one will be more fun to watch

  32. “Arguably the game of the day, it’s a chance for the Bengals to quiet those who think they can’t win in January. ”

    No, it isn’t. The Bengals can quiet those who think they can’t win in January (including me) by winning in January. A win in October does nothing to dispel that doubt.

  33. Hawks should lose based on early road game on a short week with an in cohesive OL.

    After the Hawks lost 2 in a row to go 3-3 last yr, everyone said the Hawks were done. After hawks lost at KC to go 6-4, fans said no playoffs.

    Hawks were 1 bad play call from hoisting back to back Lombardis.

    When the smoke clears in JANUARY, the Hawks will be back to the SB, per usual, while the Bungles will be playoff 1 and done, per usual.

  34. The Patriots will probably beat the depleted Cowboys, but I’d be surprised it it’s by more than a TD. Dallas has been in every game this season.

  35. BringBackTheFlex:
    I’d be surprised if it’s not 49-3 at the end if the day. The boys aren’t even on the same level if they’re healthy, and that they are not my friend.

  36. Raiders will keep the game a lot close than that guys. As a matter fact, Raiders win this one 27-24.

  37. nbptma1 says: Oct 8, 2015 9:07 AM

    When is the Bill’s defense going to live up to all the credit the media constantly gives them?
    ………………
    If you watched them, you’d know they have every week with the exception of vs the Pats.

    Indy & Miami both only scored and moved the ball after the Bills had built 4 score lead shutouts. It was garbage time in the second half.

    The Giants (who have had a didn’t do a whole lot offensively- Buffalo’s multiple penalties and turnovers giving the Giants prime field position contributed mostly to the 24 points. That and their rushing attack which leads the NFL thus far.

  38. steveoluvraiders says: Oct 8, 2015 10:21 AM

    The Raiders will shock the world this week and beat the Broncos. But the headlines will be about how Peyton is done more then the Raiders are improved.
    ……………….
    Such is life when you’re a fan of a team who hasn’t had a winning record in 13 years. As a Bills fan I know this. Your team needs a lot more than a 2-2 start vs a schedule many view as questionable in order to get the media to portray you as being improved rather than portraying it as “what was wrong with the opponent”.

  39. Browns played well against the Chargers but winning in B’more is tough (except, apparently, for the Bengals). I expect the Ravens to take this game easily but down hill after that. Flacco my have the best arm in the league. Gotta find somebody who can catch the ball

  40. BringBackTheFlex says: Oct 8, 2015 10:17 AM

    The Patriots will probably beat the depleted Cowboys, but I’d be surprised it it’s by more than a TD. Dallas has been in every game this season
    ……………
    Well, they had Romo in week 1 and most of week 2. And the Falcons & Saints, when they didn’t have Romo, are not the Pats. Not by a long shot.

    Also- being outscored 25-0 in the second half vs Atlanta- that’s a stretch to call them “in it”

  41. @dirtybirdnation:
    Redskins first in rushing
    Redskins fourth in time of possession
    Redskins first in 3rd’ down conversion
    You are bragging because one of the two cast offs stuck? We are getting it done with kids and coaching son. Mad props to Bill Callahan, obviously the steal of the off season.

  42. Every week I’m thinking the Lions will not even be in the game, and while the O is not, the D has kept them in somewhat. Even if they SHOULD lose this game, it will look like they beat themselves again.

  43. “…and not all the scrubs the Bengals beat already.”
    —————————————
    Your Seahawks only have wins over the Bears and the Lions, so excuse me while I snicker at this smack talk fail.

    =======================================

    That’s funny. For a team who supposedly always folds against the NFC East, which three teams did they beat in the first three weeks of the season again….?

  45. I was 2 for 3 on my upset picks last week as I picked the Redskins and Saints to win. There are only two opportunities for upsets that I can see which will be Texans over the Colts by the score of 24 to 17 and Saints over the Eagles by the score of 34 to 24. It looks like Florio might build on his lead.

  46. I can see the Browns, raiders, and 49ers winning, but the picks once again seem reasonable.

  47. I appreciate and enjoy reading everyone’s opinion, but think the Seahawks will ultimately show up and play well, winning this weekend in a close, tough match with a very good team.

  48. Pro Football Focus o-line rankings through week 5…

    Chester is such trash Redskins fans….

    Derp derp derp

    1. Atlanta Falcons (26th)
    Pass blocking rank: 4th

    Run blocking rank: 2nd

    Penalties rank: 6th

    Stud: What a difference a year makes. He was, quite frankly, awful last year as he played through injuries. But in 2015, Jake Matthews (+5.6) looks like one of the better linemen in the league.

    Dud: The only player with a negative grade is right tackle Ryan Schraeder (-0.1), and you can thank J.J. Watt for that.

    Summary: What a turnaround. Something you rarely see, Atlanta has morphed its scheme and personnel to achieve immediate results. Mike Person has been a revelation at center, and Chris Chester has proven to be a tremendous free agent pickup. Even Andy Levitre, who looked spent in Tennessee, has fit in seamlessly.

    The only reason the Hawks made the playoffs last year is that Carson Palmer went down and then so did his backup. Cardinals are now the team to beat in the NFC West.

  51. Upsets you can bet on.

    —————————————–

    Dude nobody is doubting the Bengals in the regular season, they are playing great. However they will be one and done in the playoffs again and there is no history to refute that fact.

  53. The Jaguars are the best NFL team in Florida (which isn’t saying much) and I’m not a fan of them…. The Bucs will continue to disappoint!

  54. Last week you both picked against the Bears, and I told you having Cutler back would make the difference and get the Bears the win.

    Well, congratulations – you’re both wrong about the Bears again this week, except the huge difference won’t be Cutler so much as it will be the Bears defense, which has been gradually improving with each game – with the d-line in particular taking advantage of the lousy KC o-line. (This will be especially true if Jeremiah Ratliffe finally returns).

    Also watch for Pernell McPhee and/or Jarvis Jenkins to have a dominant game with impact play-making.

  55. This is the least confident I’ve been for a Seahawks’ game in about 3 years.
    Not giving a score prediction, but what I see happening, most likely to least likely:
    1. Bengals in a squeaker
    2. Hawks in a squeaker
    3. Bengals by 10+
    4. Hawks by 10+

    Interesting tidbit: the last time the Seahawks were blown out was in 2011 by the Bengals IN Seattle.

    I would love to eat crow on this one, but unfortunately I think it’s the cats from Cincy that will be feasting on bird this Sunday.

  56. What’s with all the Bengals silencing their critics talk? It’s not like they’ve performed worse than the Falcons or Panthers in the playoffs, when have those teams done anything? Actually when have the Colts made any noise in the playoffs? Against noodle armed injured choke artist last year maybe? Please, Bengals are just as good if not better than all the other pretender teams out there (looking at you Eagles).

  57. The Falcons always, ALWAYS crumble against the NFC East. They play in a Cupcake division and flex those popcorn muscles like they matter but ALWAYS choke vs the NFC East. Imagine, now they are facing the BEST of the division!

    With RGIII, Redskins by 24.
    Without RGIII Redskins by 10.

    Either way, Redskins win. Easy. #HTT

    Man, where has you head been, up your….. Yes the Falcons have been beat down by the NFC East this year,….lol your a double idiot that does not get out much go tell your mama to change your diaper cause you stink!!!!!!!!! Atlanta 42 Redskins 16

  58. I’ll be happy if all of the players play well and walk off the field in one piece. Winning isn’t everything, the game/players are all that matter.

  59. It will be close, but the Chargers will win. Steelers won’t be able to stop Rivers with a healthy Gates and Woodhead on the field at the same time.

    Chargers 31
    Steelers 27

  60. “Eh. They’ve beaten 2 teams at .500 and 2 teams at .250. The Bengals have won 4 games, which is just 2 less than their 4 competitors have won, combined. Let’s not plan a parade yet.”
    ________

    It always kills me when people bring up strength of schedule this early in the season. The Bengals handed each of those teams a loss and we’re only 4 games in. So…not surprising that they haven’t beaten anyone with a “winning record”. I have a feeling that the Chargers and Raiders will have good seasons though. The Chiefs aren’t exactly terrible.

  61. The Cowboys are going to shock the world on Sunday by upsetting the Belicheats. You heard it here 1st. How About Them Cowboys Super Bowl Bound!
