Ha Kung’s Thoughts:

As I mention every week, copy my picks and you can thank me later.  If you like winning, I think I can help.

Also, just because we love competition here at Football Garbage Time, we’re once again going heads up against Wally, Will and Ray at Urban Sports Scene on our NFL Picks.  In Week 4, we beat Urban Sports Scene team, and are now 3-0-1:

But they’re awesome competitors, and they KNOW their sports, so keep it tuned in, to both us and them, because we’ll be picking all season all long!

Joanne’s Thoughts:

New York Giants (2-2) @ Green Bay Packers (2-1)

For a second week in a row, the Giants will head into difficult match-up.  In week 4, the New York Giants Monday Night game against the Minnesota Vikings ended in a loss.  The Vikings held the Giants to only 10 points.  And, one-handed catch phenom, Odell Beckham Jr., was held to only 23 receiving yards, boxed out by cornerback Xavier Rhodes.

Luckily for the Giants, the Packers defense has allowed the 29th most passing yards in the league this year.  But it’s not necessarily the Packers defense the Giants need to worry about.  With an injured secondary, the Giants will be hard pressed to defend against the Packers pass-game this Sunday.  Aaron Rodgers has thrown for 7 touchdowns and only 1 interception in 3 games.  And running back Eddie Lacy has been more effective than his 2015-self and is looking to ground and pound on Sunday.

The Packers are coming off a bye-week and hosting the Giants at home.  The Giants will be looking to bounce back from a tough week 4 loss, but unfortunately, it won’t be in week 5.

The Green Bay Packers win.

Ryan’s Thoughts:

Guess who’s back. Back again. Brady’s back. Tell a friend. The return is upon us. Patriots win and cover the 10.5 spread. Take it to the bank.

As I’ve said multiple times, the Texans are a second class team in the NFL. And I’m not only buying on the Vikings defense, I’m mortgaging the house, emptying my rainy day fund and taking out lines of credit on them. Minnesota wins, and Houston barely cracks 100 total yards in this one.

The lowly Jets fall to 1-4 and Marshall better bring a life jacket because the SS Fitzpatrick is taking on water and the bow is submerged.  Jets’ season is over, and the Steelers continue to stand as one of the elite in the AFC.

Lastly the dungeon division, the NFC South, becomes even more muddled as the Falcons get trounced a mile above sea level, the Panthers take care of Tampa Bay on Monday Night and the 1-3 Saints are sitting at home. The one year reprieve last year is over and the South can be bought for a maximum price of 9 wins this year.
