The CHEAT SHEET: NFL Picks, Week 5

Week 4 was a return to reality week of sorts for the Cheat Sheet. After a 13-3 week 2 and an unintentional bye week in week 3, the picks broke out to only five games above .500 for the last go around. The Lions showed they may really be legit after all as they thoroughly trounced the Bears, and there were a few toss up L’s taken with the Patriots and Texans too. The big shockers of the week were the Bills bossing up over the Ravens, and the Browns continuing their improbable run too.

This week got off to a start with those two teams coming off their improbable wins facing off, and I had to default back to my original picks in the season preview section for it. Worked out in my favor, because it was the Browns, but now the full week is on deck, and it’s a chance to push 20 games over .500, although there are some really tough matchups this week, including three that are breaking out with an even line headed into Sunday.
