Schon: Week Five Picks

Welcome to Week Five - If the Denver Broncos tank on this one I promise, promise, promise to never take the Broncos again... (I'm pretty sure)

It's getting to a point that I can't trust Denver at home anymore - and as bad as San Diego is, the Broncos are equally pathetic. In all reality, the Broncos are two field goals away from the NFL cellar. Don't ask me why I'm taking the Broncos, I really have no logical answer.

As far as the Dolphins go, you have to check back to Week Two's "Dirtbag" scenario to understand - needless to say, to keep harmony in the Schon household and avoid further embarrassment from someone with less football knowledge than your average toaster, I'm sticking with whoever the Dolphins happen to be playing.

On with the picks…

Jets + 3 Giants - 3 over the Giants
Saints - 3 over Carolina
KC + 2 over the Jags
Lions + 3 ½ over Washington
Titans - 8 over the Falcons
Houston - 5 ½ over Miami
Seattle + 6 over the Steelers
Pats - 15 ½ over Cleveland
Cards - 3 over St. Louis
Tampa Bay + 10 over Indy
Denver - 1 over SD - If they drop this one I promise, promise, promise to never take the Broncos again
Baltimore - 3 over the 49ers
Packers - 3 over the Bears

Monday Night
Cowboys - 10 over Buffalo
