NFL week 5 Results

And, the results for my week 5 picks are:

Cleveland √ at Buffalo (See If It Sticks ®)

Hehe. I had this game nailed. I didn’t get to see it, but judging from the 6-3 score, it sounded pretty boring. I’m guessing that score wasn’t the result of stellar defensive play.

Dallas √ at Kansas City

Dallas won, just barely.

Minnesota √ at St. Louis


Oakland at NY Giants √


Tampa Bay at Philadelphia √


Pittsburgh √ at Detroit

Quite a bit closer than I imagined.

Washington at Carolina √

Well, Carolina did eventually show up to win.

Cincinnati √ at Baltimore

I nailed this one.

Atlanta at San Francisco √

Horribly wrong pick #1.

Jacksonville √ at Seattle

Horribly wrong pick #2.

Houston at Arizona √

New England √ at Denver

My expectations for the game were good, but the result was not how I picked it. Great game nevertheless. And props to Josh McDaniels.

Indianapolis √ at Tennessee

Check. I watched this game and I got to say that the score shouldn’t be attributed so much to Indy being great (they were good), but to the Titans being miserably bad. They just screwed up at every corner. I think they got three turnovers in the first quarter and failed to get a single touchdown. They were just plain awful.

The Colts do look good, but so far they only managed to beat mediocre teams: Jacksonville, Miami, Arizona, Seattle and the miserable Tennessee. I give them lots of credit for the Miami win especially since Miami had the ball for 45 minutes of the game. But still. This is a week schedule. Assuming the 49er’s don’t start sucking after their miserable loss this week and the Colts only have five tough games on the rest of their schedule (49er’s, Pats, Ravens, Broncos, Jets). The two Texans games are a toss-up as well. So basically, expect the Colts to go at least 11-5 on the season. They have an easy schedule. Let’s see how well they do on those five tough games.

NY Jets √ at Miami

What a game. The Jets offense played great. So did Miami. Braylon Edwards was phenomenal and both young quarterbacks good as well. The defense was lackluster. The Jets got beat in the end. Did you hear Rex Ryan in the press conference? Ouch. He was pissed. Regardless, I lost this one by an inch.


This week I ended up being 10-4. Two games I was entirely wrong on why the other two were lost in overtime or late fourth quarter heroics.

So far in the season (not counting Week 1 which I didn’t do) I am 40-20. Not bad.
