4caster Frank's Weekly Picks

WEEK 5
Last Week: 7-7 .500
Season Total: 38-22 .633
Falcons 28 Lions 24
The Lions have played strong this year while the Flacons are 4-0 getting contributions from everyone as Michael Vick has not put up spectacular numbers. The Flacons will move up to 5-0 but it will be close through out.
Giants 20 Cowboys 17
The Giants last week went into Green Bay and smacked the Packers, now they are looking to continue their strong start against division rival Dallas, who may be a little flat off the bye week. Look for the Giants to win a close one.
Vikings 27 Texans 13
The Texans are 2-2, and they should consider themselves lucky for that. However against the Vikings the luck will end as Daunte Cullpepper has a big day leading the Vikings to an easy win.
Patriots 17 Dolphins 6
Last week the Patriots tied the record for the longest winning streak in NF history at 18. The record is held by many other teams including the 72 Dolphins. The Pats will break the record, but they will not win by 13 points, as the Dolphins defense keeps their wretched offense in the game.
Buccaneers 17 Saints 13
The 0-4 Buccaneers need a jump-start in the worse way and that jump-start will come in the way of QB Chris Simms making his first career start. Simms impresses in his debut as the Bucs stun the Saints on the road.
Steelers 20 Browns 17
The Steelers have played well with Rookie QB Ben Rothlisberger, who will improve to 3-0 against the rival Browns. However the game will be close throughout as the Steelers win in Overtime.  
Chargers 17 Jaguars 13
The Jaguars luck came to an end last week as they lost their first game despite scoring a season high 17 points. This week on the road going coast to coast they will fall again as the Chargers in their throwbacks improve to 3-2.
Colts 38 Raiders 17
Peyton Manning and the Colts offense have been firing on all cylinders this year, and that trend will continue as the gallop all over the banged up Raiders for an easy win as Manning passes for over 300 yards again.
Jets 24 Bills 20
The Jets are 3-0 but have some holes while the Bills at 0-3 have played in hard luck. The Jets will win, but the trend will continue as the Bills cover the spread.

Broncos 21 Panthers 17
The Panthers have struggled so far losing 2 of their first 3 games as they have started the season with the toughest schedule in the league. It doesn't get easier this week in Denver it will be close but the Panthers will come up short again.
Cardinals 20 49ers 17
The 49ers and the Cardinals used to be seen as one of the biggest mismatches in the NFL. The Cardinals still stink, but the 49ers are even worse. Look for the Cardinals to go into Monster Park and drop the 49ers to 0-5. 
Seahawks 30 Rams 13
The Seahawks are flying high at 3-0, and playing at home where they went undefeated last year. Look for them to get a death grip on the NFC west by easily beating the Rams who have played poorly.
Ravens 17 Redskins 13
When are we going to learn the Redskins are the biggest busts of the year every year. Big free agent signings big coach hirings its al the same the hope and optimism of the Redskins fades fast. Perhaps Joe Gibbs should have stayed in NASCAR because the game has gone zooming by.

Titans 24 Packers 20
Each of these teams is 1-3 and a loss could be the knock out blow. Ordinarily the Packers at home should be given the edge, but Lambeau Field has lost its aura, while the Titans used to turning around slow starts go in and give the Packers their 3rd home loss of the year.
