NFL Predictions: Week 5 Picks for Every Game

Athlon's experts pick every winner for every game on the Week 5 slate

A month into the NFL season and there are just three undefeated teams standing – Kansas City, New England, and San Francisco. Week 4 cut the pool by five as it was a rough one in general for home teams. Eleven road teams won, which is a big reason why Athlon Sports' panel of experts (see below) did so poorly with their Week 4 picks.

 

So what does Week 5 hold? It starts with what hopefully will be a good game with the Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks facing off on "Thursday Night Football." Those two teams are looking up at the aforementioned 49ers (who were on bye last week), who will host the Cleveland Browns for "Monday Night Football."

 

Elsewhere on the schedule, the first overseas game of the season will take place in London between the Chicago Bears and Oakland Raiders. The Bears are dealing with some injury issues but one guy who will be out there is Khalil Mack, who is getting his shot at his former team. Divisional games on tap include Tampa Bay vs. New Orleans, Baltimore vs. Pittsburgh, and Denver vs. the Los Angeles Chargers.

 

It's not in prime time, but Green Bay's visit to Dallas should be entertaining while the "Sunday Night Football" spotlight this week will shine on Indianapolis and Kansas City.

 

So which teams will come out on top in every NFL game in Week 5? Athlon's own Rob Doster (@AthlonDoster) and Mark Ross (@AthlonMark), along with AthlonSports.com contributor Bryan Fischer (@BryanDFischer), predict the winners for every game this week:
