Week 5 NFL Picks; Rams-Seahawks, Browns-Chargers, Bills-Chiefs Highlight Week 5 Slate

Welcome to Week 5 of the NFL. We kick off the week tonight with a good one in Seattle. Matthew Stafford and the Rams are looking to get back on track after a beatdown from the Cardinals last week. The Thursday Night slate has been great if you take out Carolina and Houston. 3 out of the 4 games have been decided by 3 points or less. The Jets and Falcons head to London to face off early Sunday morning. With both teams facing a crossroads at 1-3, a win could turnaround the season. Other marquee games on Sunday afternoon include two 3-1 teams as the Packers travel to Cincinnati to play the Bengals. Are the Bengals for real? We should find out a lot about them on Sunday. Khalil Mack and the Bears face the Raiders, his former team. There should be some extra motivation with the coach who traded him away on the opposing sideline. The Browns take on the Chargers in LA, which for the record is not an indoor facility, as we found out on Monday Night Football. Baker Mayfield is banged up, but the Browns defense has been excellent so far. Can they handle the Chargers offense and keep Justin Herbert in check? It should be an excellent measuring stick game. The Cardinals look to stay unbeaten as they face the 49ers at home. In what should be another Sunday Night classic, the Chiefs host the Bills in a rematch of last year's AFC Championship game. This game could very well determine homefield advantage in the playoffs, especially for the Bills who could get the head-to-head tiebreaker with a win.
