NFL Predictions: Week 5 Picks for Every Game

The panel is split on Cowboys-Rams but in lockstep for the vast majority of the slate.

Not even a quarter of the way through the NFL season and there is just one undefeated team left standing, and chances are very few had this team pegged to start 4-0 back in the summer. But credit to the Philadelphia Eagles for not only beating their first four opponents, but also doing so soundly (+44 point differential, second only to Bills). Can they make it 5-0 after this week?

First up in Week 5 is a "Thursday Night Football" matchup between Indianapolis and Denver. Both teams are coming off of losses, have injury concerns, and have underachieved to this point. It's only Week 5 but this is a huge game for both the Colts and Broncos when it comes to playoff aspirations.

On Sunday, the Giants and Packers get things started early with a game across the pond in London. Then in the regular 1 p.m. ET window there are four divisional pairings, including Dolphins-Jets and Bears-Vikings. Later Sunday is when the aforementioned Eagles will look to improve to 5-0 on the road against a Cardinals team in a game that doubles up as a head-to-head matchup between former Oklahoma quarterbacks. Elsewhere, the Cowboys pay a visit to Los Angeles to take on the Rams with the 49ers headed to the East Coast to face the Panthers.

It's a pair of AFC divisional clashes to wrap up Week 5. Cincinnati battles Baltimore on "Sunday Night Football," and then the Raiders-Chiefs take the stage for "Monday Night Football."
