Predictions for Every NFL Game in Week 5

Athlon's NFL experts pick the winner for every game on the slate, including Matt Ryan and the Falcons' attempt to go two-for-two against Super Bowl 50 teams

Four weeks into the NFL season and only three undefeated teams remain, and while that trio does not include New England, the Patriots do get quarterback Tom Brady back from suspension. And the timing could not be any better considering Bill Belichick’s team is coming off of a rare 16-0 home loss to the Bills. You almost have to pity Cleveland, the only winless team in the league, as Brady and the rest of the team will no doubt look to take out their frustrations on the Browns.

 

The teams that remain perfect at this point are defending Super Bowl champion Denver, Minnesota and Philadelphia. The Broncos host the Falcons, who are looking for a sweep of the two Super Bowl participants after beating the Panthers 48-33 at home last week. The Vikings handled the Giants 24-10 on Monday night and will welcome AFC South-leading Houston (3-1) to U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday. The Eagles look to continue their impressive early showing as they return from their bye week to face the Lions in Detroit.

 

Elsewhere, Arizona and Carolina, a pair of defending division champions, find themselves in a must-win situation after losses last week left each at 1-3. The Cardinals take on NFC West foe San Francisco on Thursday night, while the Panthers host NFC South rival Tampa Bay on Monday night. These two struggling teams also share one other thing in common – their starting quarterbacks are in the concussion protocol and will need to be cleared before they can play.

 

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