Here are my picks for the NFL's Week Five:
***SUNDAY, OCTOBER 10***
Jacksonville 2-2 at Buffalo 0-4 - 1:00 PM [Line: Bills by 1]
Jacksonville has a poor offense and an awful defense. But Buffalo has arguably the worst offense and worst defense in the league. The Bills shouldn't be favored here, even at home. If it was December, maybe. But it's not going to get too cold in upstate New York in early-to-mid October.
---RJ's Pick: Jaguars by 4
Tampa Bay 2-1 at Cincinnati 2-2 - 1:00 PM [Line: Bengals by 7]
This is sort of funny: Chad Ochocinco Cereal boxes accidentally include sex-line number. No word on whether it's "accidental' that the cereal tastes like lemur ass.
---RJ's Pick: Bengals by 11
Atlanta 3-1 at Cleveland 1-3 - 1:00 PM [Line: Falcons by 3]
Fun fact: Cleveland holds a 10-2 edge in its all-time series with the Falcons.
---RJ's Pick: Falcons by 7
Saint Louis 2-2 at Detroit 0-4 - 1:00 PM [Line: Lions by 3]
The Rams won one game last season, and it was against the Lions–in Detroit. Still, I've gotta pick my team to win, especially since they are actually the favorites this week.
---RJ's Pick: Lions by 12
Kansas City 3-0 at Indianapolis 2-2 - 1:00 PM [Line: Colts by 7.5]
The Chiefs aren't getting much respect, as they are seven-and-a-half point underdogs despite being the only remaining undefeated team in the NFL. But winning in Lucas Oil Stadium is a difficult task for any road team, and Kansas City's defense is overrated. Look for Peyton Manning to pass for 300+ yards and three or four TDs.
---RJ's Pick: Colts by 10
Green Bay 3-1 at Washington 2-2 - 1:00 PM [Line: Packers by 3]
I smell an upset. (Or maybe I just need a shower.)
---RJ's Pick: Redskins by 1
Chicago 3-1 at Carolina 0-4 - 1:00 PM [Line: Bears by 3]
Todd Collins will start for the injured Jay Cutler at quarterback for the Bears. The winless Panthers have the lowest scoring offense in the league. I don't expect a lot of points or a lot of excitement. (The over/under for the game is just 36.)
---RJ's Pick: Bears by 6
