2016 NFL Picks Week 5

Either I'm just not as accurate this year, or there's been more upsets than usual... I'd like to go with the latter. I finished Week 4 at 7-8, which means I'm barely above .500 at 32-31. I was correct in my Pick of the Week thanks to some bad calls, but I'll take it (3-1 on the season). I was 1 for 2 in upset picks (Oakland at Baltimore), bringing my season total to 5-5. Statistically speaking I would have been better off picking all upsets, as there were a whopping 8 out of 15 games this week.

The losses for me started early on Sunday morning, with Jacksonville holding of Indianapolis in London. From there, I saw Buffalo shut out New England, Seattle traveling to beat the New York Jets, Carolina coming up short in a high scoring game against Atlanta, Detroit losing on the road to Chicago, San Francisco losing at home to Dallas, San Diego blowing the game against New Orleans, and finally Arizona being upset by Los Angeles.

Maybe Week 5 will be more predictable?
