    Entering the second quarter of the season now. Be interesting to see how the season progresses for the teams that started out hot, and also for the teams that have struggled early to see if they can turn things around.
    Anyway, here's my week 5 picks:

    Thursday Game
    Colts at Pats --- Pats at home.

    Sunday Games
    Titans at Bills --- Titans have been a mild surprise at 3-1. Bills other than their fluke win have been dismal.
    Falcons at Steelers --- Steelers at home. Both teams have been somewhat disappointing so far.
    Broncos at Jets --- Broncos should have won the game against the Chefs. Should beat Jets.
    Jags at Chefs --- Great O vs great D. Mediocre O vs horrendous D. Jags with slight edge.
    Pukers at Kitties --- Much as I hope the Kitties win this one, they'll find a way to lose.
    Ravens at Browns --- Ravens playing very well. Strong D. Should beat the Brownies.
    Giants at Panthers --- Panthers at home.
    Fish at Bengals --- Good matchup. Both teams playing pretty well. Bengals at home.
    Raiders at Chargers --- Chargers at "home".
    Cards at Whiners --- Beathard played pretty well in Garrapolo's absense. Santa Clara Whiners at home.
    Vikes at Iggles --- Vikes usually do well in the meaningless revenge games, plus they have a few extra days to gameplan.
    Rams at Seachix --- Seachix just lost their best defensive player to injury and another to indefinite suspension. No defense against the Rams is close to guaranteed defeat as you can get.
    Cowpies at Texassans --- Tossup in the battle of Texass. Guess I'll go with home team.

    Monday Game
    Redskins at Saints --- AD may run wild against Saints, but Brees should put up lots of points. Saints at home.

    To put the Falcons in the same box with the Steelers is an insult to Atlanta. Atlanta may have not played up to expectations so far but the Steelers are an embarrassment to themselves, the city and the league. Unlike Cleveland, the high talent is actually there and they must run around the field like the Keystone Cops to keep losing games as they have:

    Killer Bee Ben not able to hit the broad side of the barn with zero depth perception.
    Killer Bee AB not able to run routes, get in sync, get open or actually catch half the time. The rest of the time having temper tantrums.
    Killer Bee Bell down in Florida giving the finger to the team and having a good time throwing away $850,000 a week and not caring.
    Killer Bee Bosewell having more hits of the uprights than actual completed FGs.
    The OL unable to keep back defenders.
    The Defense unable to stop runs, deep passes, TDs or FGs. Or QBs.

    The Steelers: a super-poorly coached totally unprepared undisciplined disaster in the making.

    I'm going to agree with your picks with one exception: I'm taking the Eagles at home over the Vikings.

    OK. So you’re going for the Falcons in that game then?

    Absolutely. The Steelers will come out imploding, tripping over their own two feet in the first quarter to practically hand the game away like these guys just met yesterday.
    In the 2nd quarter, the Steelers will rally, get it together and make it look like a game.
    Having spent all their jism, in the 3rd quarter, Steelers will be absolutely flat and ineffectual as the Falcons march ahead.
    By the 4th quarter, Steelers will sputter, blow themselves up, try to make a comeback but in the end, die of their own mistakes.

    Despite a brief comeback in the second half by the Colts, the Pats pretty much dominated TNF. Edelman being back makes a huge difference for that offense.

    Brady joins the 500 TD pass club with Manning and Favre.

    I was watching the dodgers game last night down at my local bar and naturally they had the pats/colts game on,so i HAD to hear what was going on and when it was commerical break i looked at it and the colts really gave this one to them,everytime they got a turnover from them,they had a turnover and gave it right back to them.yeah the first three games i did not know that edelman was not playing.

    I knew once he got back,that would make a difference so it looks like my rams assuming they fix their defense,will be facing the cheaters in the superbowl this year is MY pick I am sticking with. the chiefs not having one of the best corners in the league anymore,i dont expect them to win against the pats next time they face them this year like last year.on that monday night game.the announcers themselves said they got the worst defense in the NFL.LOL
