NFL Picks for Week 5

We’re back at it with Week 5. Jess Place, Laurie Lattimore-Volkmann, and I will be dueling it out this season for the best straight-up NFL picks guru on Mile High Report.

Welcome to Week 5!

While I’d love to move on from last week considering most of my picks took a nose dive, with my finishing 7-9 on the week. I must point out that Laurie wasn’t much better at 8-8, so I didn’t lose too much ground there. Jess was the biggest winner hitting home runs on all of the underdog picks to go 11-5. He and I are both still well behind the lead here. We need Laurie to trip up someday...

This week, I’m liking a couple of my spots. I love that I am the only one of us who picked the Seattle Seahawks at home on prime time over the Los Angeles Rams. I might still lose that game, but I think its a good spot to gain a game there. However, I might give it right back with the picking of the Jacksonville Jaguars at home against the Tennessee Titans. It is what it is, but the Jaguars have to win a game eventually, right?

Looking at last week, way too many people added their picks. If someone wants to setup a Yahoo or ESPN pick’em league, I’ll gladly join and add my weekly picks there. It might help for easy “adding up” of wins too. For now, click that link there if you shared your picks in the comments section last week and let us know how you fared down in the comments below.

One of our members created a community pick’em league on Yahoo, so join us there as well to compete each week!
