Week Five features a limited schedule, as the bye weeks are upon us. 26 teams, 13 games, and no Cowboys, Redskins, Ravens, Browns, Dolphins and Rams. Last week was a rough one for the projections. In a fashion similar to the way the Cowboys tasted defeat, things looked good at first and then took a nosedive down the stretch.
At this point, I'm scared to take my own advice, but the show must go on. Obviously the column requires me to prognosticate on several games that I wouldn't touch with a 10-foot pole, but it is what it is. Follow the jump for this week's predictions. Feel free to talk trash about my prior picks in the comments.
