This week there is a nice slate of games in the NFL for week five, but the hard part is making the predictions.

Look at the matchup in Cincinnati where the Bengals will host the New England Patriots. I think this could be a very good game.

What can we expect from the New Orleans Saints at Chicago Bears? This game has a potential of a big Saints win with their offense, though it will be interesting to see if the Bears’ defense can bounce back from their loss in Detroit last week. I’m choosing the former.

The game of the week could be Seattle at Indianapolis or Houston at San Francisco. Kansas City at Tennessee draws my interest as well, because the Titans are much improved, and so are the Chiefs since they are 4-0 overall.

Last week I picked 11 of 15 games correctly. This week’s picks won’t include the Cleveland win over the Buffalo Bills on Thursday.

It is safe to say I’m excited for this week, so here are my picks. Feel free to add your picks in the comments section.
