S&BP predicts week 5 NFL matchups

New, comments

It's time again for this week's Silver & Black Pride staff game picks.

Last week was much kinder to prognosticators than the previous week. Week three, none of us broke the .500 mark. Last week, most of the teams played a bit more in line with what we have come to expect from them.

Topping off the records last week were myself, Rhynno, and RDreamer coming in at 11-4. S.O.B. was just behind that with a respectable 10-5 record.

As I said it was a good week as even the last place finisher, RaiderWay, posted an 8-7 mark. Picking the Raiders for the fourth straight time didn't work out so well and dropped him from his second place overall spot last week down to fifth overall. He tried to pick them to win again this week but I had to tell him that wasn't possible. I did assure him, however, that none of us will be picking them to lose.

All the records looked quite good after the Sunday day games. But then came Sunday night and Monday night where we all had the Giants and Cowboys winning and were all wrong thanks to the Giants having a shitty kicker whose 54-yard field goal attempt fell SHORT (they can't all be Janikowski, but come on) and Tony Romo throwing five interceptions.

This week won't surpass last week in terms of consistency (7) among picks across the board but we all have the Bengals, Packers, Falcons, Vikings, 49ers, and Texans winning their matchups.

Rhynno is putting his sack on the table and going with a few upsets as the lone prognosticator with the Chiefs, Browns, Jaguars, and Broncos winning their tough matchups.

Here are the picks from this week. Good luck fellas.
