Carolina Panthers at Seattle Seahawks (-7)
If there is a team who can shut down this Seattle offense, it’s the Panthers (4-0). The problem is, the Seahawks (2-3) also have an answer for Cam Newton and company. Carolina keeps it close, but Seattle is too strong in a must-win game.
Pick: Seattle 17, Carolina 14
San Diego Chargers at Green Bay Packers (-11.5)
The Packers (5-0) offense has struggled a little the past couple weeks, but the Chargers (2-3) don’t have a defense capable of slowing down Aaron Rodgers. Oh, and Green Bay can play a little defense these days too. The unit has outplayed the offense in the past two victories, and Philip Rivers will take some sacks.
Pick: Green Bay 41, San Diego 24
Baltimore Ravens (-1) at San Francisco 49ers
I’ve picked the Ravens (1-4) to win every week this season, and they have helped me out once. I’m done, Baltimore. You’re going to lose to the 49ers (1-4).
Pick: San Francisco 27, Baltimore 14
New England Patriots (-9) at Indianapolis Colts
If you are a member of the Indianapolis Colts (3-2), run. Tom Brady is angry and is playing the best he has since 2007. Andrew Luck returning gives the Colts a chance, but unfortunately he can’t play defense. The Patriots (4-0) roll on.
Pick: New England 42, Indianapolis 17
New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles (-4)
The Eagles (2-3) got themselves a victory, but unfortunately it was against the Saints. They get a tougher challenge against the in-form Giants (3-2), and I’m picking Eli Manning and his team to pull away in the NFC East.
Pick: New York 28, Philadelphia 21
Last week: 10-4
