2014 NFL Picks Week 5

Well, that was a regrettable week of picks! I finished 5-8 for Week 4; there were some close games but also a couple of terrible picks on my part. I was 0 for 3 picking upsets, which now sits at an even 7-7. Overall I am 36-25, dropping 5% to 59% on the season. The silver lining is I correctly picked my Pick of the Week, which I am 3-1 at thus far.

Right off the bat on Thursday I was wrong, as I picked Washington to beat the New York Giants. They had played well against Philadelphia the week prior, but that did not carry over. The other New York team was unable to secure an upset home win against Detroit, as was the case with Chicago losing to Green Bay. I was doing OK during the 1pm games, but then Tampa Bay shocking Pittsburgh ruined that. Honestly, who picked Tampa Bay to win? I can't figure out Atlanta, as they look great one week but awful the next: they lost to Minnesota. Philadelphia was unable to score on offense, and yet still had a chance to win the game versus San Francisco. At least they lost with some dignity, unlike the blowouts of the remaining 2 games. I went back and forth on these games, but eventually incorrectly picked New Orleans over Dallas and New England over Kansas City. Week 5 can't be worse...
