Hi everyone! Today I want to go over which picks I got correct and wrong from last week. So, let’s get started, shall we?! I predicted that the Browns would beat the Vikings 30-20, but the final score was 14-7 Browns over the Vikings. I predicted that the Chiefs would beat the Eagles 37-26, but the final score was 42-30 Chiefs over the Eagles. So, a pretty close prediction there! I predicted that the Packers would beat the Steelers 33-24, but the final score was 27-17 Packers over the Steelers. I predicted that the Ravens would beat the Broncos 35-30, but the final score was 23-7 Ravens over the Broncos. I predicted that the Buccaneers would beat the Patriots 37-20, but the final score was 19-17 in a very close game. The Bucs barely won the game because the Patriots were close to winning the game with a field goal attempt, but the ball just hit the goal post on the left side and made a donk noise. I predicted that the Chargers would beat the Raiders 30-24, but the final score was 28-14 Chargers over the Raiders.
I predicted that the Panthers would beat the Cowboys 31-27, but the final score was 36-28 Cowboys over the Panthers. Giving the Panthers their first loss of the season. I predicted that the 49ers would beat the Seahawks 32-24, but the final score was 28-21 Seahawks over the 49ers. I predicted that the Rams were going to beat the Cardinals 30-27, but the final score was 37-20 Cardinals over the Rams in a pretty good blowout. The Cardinals offense came out and played very hard, they were physical, and they did not have any turnovers taken away. Quarterback Kyler Murray threw 2 touchdowns and no interceptions. He was pretty much carving up the Rams defense and they were confused and did not know what to do. The Rams offense was just not good. The Cardinals came out scoring touchdowns and not too many field goals. They had a couple, but not a lot of them. The Cardinals are still undefeated. In fact, they are the only team to be undefeated in the NFL so far. I predicted that the Saints would beat the Giants 36-17, but the final score was 27-21 Giants over the Saints. The Giants went down the field and scored a game-winning touchdown in overtime.
So based on my predictions from last week, I have gotten 6 out of 10 picks correct! Now, let’s get to week 5 picks, shall we?! The first game I will predict is the Lions @Vikings game. I think the Vikings will beat the Lions 41-24 because the Vikings are at home and they might make it too much for the Lions and make it harder for them to win and besides, the Lions are not that good of a team. The next game I will predict is the Eagles @Panthers game. I think the Panthers will take care of business over the Eagles 29-17. The next game I will predict is the Dolphins @Buccaneers game. I think the Bucs will beat the Dolphins 33-20. The next game I will predict is the Saints @Washington Football Team. I think the Saints should take care of business over the Football team 36-24. The next game I will predict is the Packers @Bengals game. I think this will actually be a good game because both of these teams are pretty good. I think the Packers are a little bit better team and I think the Packers will barely pull this game out over the Bengals 34-27. The next game I will predict is the Broncos @Steelers game. I think the Broncos might actually beat the Steelers 26-20 because the Steelers have so far struggle with their offense and a bit of their defense as well. But you never know. Right now I predict a Broncos victory. The next game I will predict is the Browns @Chargers game. I think that this will be a good game. I think the Browns may barely pull this game out over the Chargers 24-17 because I think the Browns running game is going to eat up the clock and not letting the Chargers and the quarterback Justin Herbert some time to go down the field and try to win the game. The next game I will predict is the Giants @Cowboys game, the divisional rivalries. I think the Cowboys will come out on top of the Giants in a close game 37-30. The next game I will predict is the 49ers @Cardinals game, the divisional rivalries. I think this game should be a great game. The Cardinals will be looking to stay undefeated and the 49ers are looking to trying to stop it. The Cardinals have some concerns on defense because their corner back Byron Murphy who is a starter has been ruled out and that is a pretty big blow to their defense. Their defense has to put pressure on the rookie quarterback of the 49ers Trey Lance. He has some weapons to go to such as the wide receivers Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk. The quarterback is going to try and give it to them and take advantage of the Cardinals secondary so the Cardinals have to be ready for them. The only thing that benefits the Cardinals on defense is that the 49ers tight end George Kittle is going to be out for the game. He is always a threat to the Cardinals defense. The Cardinals offense has to move the ball down the field and score touchdowns. The 49ers defense up front is pretty good which should be concerning for the Cardinals offense when it comes to running the football. Kyler Murray has to keep them off balance by taking advantage of the 49ers’ secondary and take what they gave you. The 49ers defense is pretty good getting off the field on 3rd down and keeping teams out of the end zone. So, the Cardinals must do the same thing they did last week against the Rams because the 49ers are going to be playing desperate because they know that the Cardinals are ahead of them in the NFC West division. Don’t get too many penalties, do not turn the ball over, and don’t go three and out every series. This will be a test, but I think the Cardinals will do just enough to beat the 49ers 31-23 and stay undefeated. But don’t overestimate the Cardinals too much though.
The next game I will predict is the Bills @Chiefs game on Sunday Night Football. I think this will be a really good game. However, I actually think the Bills can come up on top of the Chiefs in a very close game and a shootout 36-33 because for one thing, the Chiefs defense just don’t look good and the Bills defense pitching a shutout over the Texans 40-0 last week. I think their defense will eventually start to slow down the Chiefs offense a little bit and do enough to win the game. The last game I will predict is the Colts @Ravens game on Monday Night Football. The Ravens have a 14-13 record on Mondays all time, but are 5-3 at their stadium and that is an okay record and the Colts have a 25-18 record on Mondays all time, however they are 11-12 on the road on Mondays. Pretty interesting records! And following the records on paper, I think the Ravens will beat the Colts in a close game 35-27.
So, what do you guys think about the NFL week 5 picks?! I would love to hear lots of comments, thoughts, opinions, questions, or concerns down below! Stay tuned for NFL updates.
