The BTB writers pick the winners for all the Week 5 action.

Not many people think the Cowboys will be able to win on Sunday against the Patriots, and Vegas has the Cowboys as 9-point underdogs. At home.

In Week 6 last year, the Cowboys traveled to Seattle and were -9.5 point underdogs against the Seahawks, yet they pulled off an improbable upset. Can they beat the odds again against the Patriots despite missing key starters due to injury?

Below is a look at all our picks for the Week 5 action. Let us know what you think about the picks, and don't forget to enter our Pick 256 challenge this week - if you haven't already done so.
