PIGSKIN 2013; Football Sunday - Week Five

Football Sunday
Week Four Record:  9-4-1
Overall Record:  26-25-3
Schmear of the Week:  4-0 (3x Bagels)
Bagels in the Basket:  +10
Coin Toss: 
  • Is it me, or have there been more trades this season than usual for the NFL?
  • No respect for home teams this week.
Second and Short:
  • The AFC East and AFC West are the NFL's top two divisions, with eleven victories.  The NFC East is last with only four victories in the entire division.
  • Five undefeated teams remain - New England, Denver, Kansas City, New Orleans and Seattle.  The Broncos lead the NFL in points scored by a very wide margin over the second place Chicago Bears.
  • Heading into Week Five, the Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Giants are still winless.  Go figure.  They join lowly Jacksonville and Tampa Bay as the four remaining teams still without a victory.
  • The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are on the verge of a mutiny.  Coach Schiano is making enemies of his players and the owner. 
....let's roll some Bagels!
Friday Line - NYDN
GIANTS -2 1/2 (Eagles)
There will be no defense to speak of from either team in this game.  I think the GMen will finally win a shoot-out.
Loss; 36-21 Eagles
Chiefs -2 1/2 (TITANS)
 Not too crazy about picking against the Titans at home.  But this spread left me no choice.
Win; 26-17 Chiefs
Ravens +3 (DOLPHINS)
Baltimore just made a trade to bolster their offensive line.  I think Miami gets humbled at home.
Push; 26-23 Ravens
Jaguars +11 1/2 (RAMS)
I'm looking for the Jags to cover this, nothing more.
Loss; 34-20 Rams
Patriots +1 (BENGALS)
Vegas doesn't have much confidence in home teams this week.  New England has been far more consistent than the Bengals.
Loss; 13-6 Bengals
Seahawks -3 (COLTS)
The Colts defense will keep this respectable.  But this is still like stealing candy from a baby.
Loss; 34-28 Colts
Lions +7 (PACKERS)
I like the Lions to cover this game.  Winning is another matter.  However, only two teams have put up more points than Detroit.
Loss; 22-9 Packers
Saints pick'em (BEARS)
Drew Brees is only starting to get warmed up.  But have you seen what New Orleans has been doing defensively?
Win; 26-18 Saints
CARDINALS +2 (Panthers)
I said it last week - I like when the Cardinals are getting points.
Win; 22-0 Cardinals
Chargers -5 (RAIDERS)
Phillip Rivers likes playing in the Black Hole, but more importantly, he's trying to not let Denver and Kansas City get too far away.
Loss; 27-17 Raiders
Broncos -7 1/2 (COWBOYS)
It's going to smell like toast in Texas this Sunday.  Cowboys owner Jerry Jones spent how much on his cornerbacks?  Wait till Peyton fires them up.
Loss; 51-48 Broncos
Texans +7 (49ERS)
Great game for Sunday night.  Just looking for the Texans to cover.  As stated above, there is no respect for home teams this week.
Loss; 34-3 49ers
Schmear of the Week:
Chargers -5
That's fifteen Bagels into the oven.  Good Luck everybody, and have a Happy Football Sunday!
Week Five Record:  3-8-1
Overall Record:  29-33-4
Schmear of the Week:  4-1
Bagels in the Basket:  +1
