NFL Week 5 Predictions: Our Picks for Each Game


That is the primary time in 31 games over 15 years that the N.F.L. has sent two winning teams to play one another in London. It’s also the primary time they’ve sent the Packers, who’re 8.5-point favorites on the neutral field. They face the Giants and the league’s top running back, Saquon Barkley, who stepped up last week and took snaps late in the sport when each Giants quarterbacks went out with injuries. The Giants have said they’re “optimistic” Daniel Jones will likely be able to play in London. There may be also hope that wide receivers Wan’Dale Robinson and Kadarius Toney will come off the injury list this week. If all of them play and are healthy, the Giants will likely be greater than able to covering 8.5 points. If none of them play, the Giants will need Barkley to do loads greater than take a number of snaps. Pick: Giants +8.5

Cincinnati Bengals (2-2) at Baltimore Ravens (2-2)
8:20 p.m., NBC
Line: Ravens -3 | Total: 48

The Ravens have two close losses against good teams and trailed for a complete of 14 seconds in those two games. Last week, they went for it on fourth and goal from the 2-yard line fairly than kicking a field goal, a choice that frustrated fans but was statistically the proper play, in accordance with N.F.L. Next Gen Stats. Ravens Coach John Harbaugh is thought for aggressive plays like this because he has confidence in his team. The Bengals are coming off a prime-time win against the Dolphins, a game that can most certainly buoy their very own confidence. The road is 3 in some places and three.5 in others, and the costs are shaded to encourage bettors to either take the three or lay the three.5, indicating the true number is somewhere in between. Pick: Ravens -3

Miami Dolphins (3-1) at Recent York Jets (2-2)
1 p.m., CBS
Line: Dolphins -3.5 | Total: 44

Tua Tagovailoa’s ugly injury last week in Miami’s loss to the Bengals has sparked a number of crucial discussion about concussions and the hazards that players within the N.F.L. face. It’s unclear when he might play again. Miami’s backup quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater, is not any rookie. He’s an eighth-year veteran with over 14,000 passing yards. The Jets are also getting used to a recent quarterback. Zach Wilson got his first start of this season for the Jets last week of their win against the Steelers. Along with throwing for 252 yards, he also managed to catch a touchdown pass. We all know loads about what Bridgewater can do. We don’t know quite as much about Wilson within the N.F.L. Pick: Jets +3.5

Pittsburgh Steelers (1-3) at Buffalo Bills (3-1)
1 p.m., CBS
Line: Bills -14 | Total: 47

Rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett took over for Mitch Trubisky last week through the Steelers’ loss to the Jets. Despite throwing three interceptions in his debut, Pickett gets the starting job this week. The market shouldn’t be yet convinced that Pickett is way of an upgrade — the Bills are currently 14-point favorites. That’s a giant number and enough to draw 65 percent of the cash up to now on Pittsburgh. The Bills are coming off back-to-back closely fought games that will have taken loads out of them. The Steelers are 0-7 without T.J. Watt within the lineup. Pick: Bills -14

Philadelphia Eagles (4-0) at Arizona Cardinals (2-2)
4:25 p.m., Fox
Line: Eagles -5.5 | Total: 49.5

The Cardinals are coming off a win on the road against the Panthers. This week, they fight to get their first win at home, but they face the undefeated Eagles. The Eagles proceed to attain most of their points within the second quarter, then hang on through the second half. They’ve been outscored 36-23 within the second half through 4 games. Arizona, however, has outscored its opponents 66-37 within the second half. The Cardinals are a team used to playing from behind. If the Eagles attempt to chew the clock within the second half with a pleasant lead, don’t be surprised if Kyler Murray takes the Cardinals down the sector for a late backdoor cover. Pick: Cardinals +5.5
