NFL 2011 Week 5 Round-Up

My worst week picking to date, hitting on just four of the thirteen games. The Wife and I are now tied, but Steve continues his dominance with another strong week and now has a ten (!) game lead after just five weeks.

Titans at Steelers
The Wife: Titans
Me: Titans
Steve: Titans
WINNER: Steelers

Seahawks at Giants
The Wife: Giants
Me: Giants
Steve: Giants
WINNER: Seahawks (does anything make sense in the NFL?)

Bengals at Jaguars
The Wife: Jaguars
Me: Jaguars
Steve: Bengals
WINNER: Bengals (good on Dalton, Bengals off to surprisingly good start this year . . .)

Saints at Panthers
The Wife: Saints
Me: Panthers
Steve: Saints
WINNER: Saints (a fun game to watch)

Raiders at Texans
The Wife: Raiders
Me: Texans
Steve: Raiders
WINNER: Raiders (thought the link between them winning and Al Davis dying was a bit crass)

Eagles at Bills
The Wife: Bills
Me: Eagles
Steve: Bills
WINNER: Bills (they've received a lot of points the last couple of weeks off somewhat lucky interceptions, but a win is certainly a win)

Chiefs at Colts
The Wife: Colts
Me: Colts
Steve: Chiefs
WINNER: Chiefs

Cardinals at Vikings
The Wife: Cardinals
Me: Cardinals
Steve: Vikings
WINNER: Vikings (no Christian Ponder yet . . .)

Bucs at 49ers
The Wife: Bucs
Me: Bucs
Steve: Bucs
WINNER: 49ers (never saw such a pasting coming . . .)

Jets at Patriots
The Wife: Patriots
Me: Patriots
Steve: Patriots
WINNER: Patriots (Jets will be lucky to get another wild card this year)

Chargers at Broncos
The Wife: Broncos
Me: Chargers
Steve: Chargers
WINNER: Chargers (they don't seem to play well, but they keep racking up wins . . .)

Packers at Falcons
The Wife: Packers
Me: Packers
Steve: Packers
WINNER: Packers

Bears at Lions
The Wife: Lions
Me: Lions
Steve: Bears
WINNER: Lions (a couple of big plays won this one; Cutler played great considering he was on his back much of the night)


The Wife: 6-7
Me: 4-9
Steve: 9-4


The Wife: 42-35
Me: 42-35
Steve: 52-25

Wow ... a 10 game lead this early in the season? I would have never expected that. Maybe I'd best start thinking of ideas for the loser article with 3 months still in the season. ;)

I knew I should have picked the Lions... :-P

What the heck is going on in San Fran, especially this past week. Wow...
