By the Football Garbage Time Staff

Without further to do, here are our picks:

Week 5 Games

Ha Kung Wong’s Picks

Ha Kung’s Thoughts:

Last year I ended up with a 62% record for the season, so that’s two years in a row with over a 60% pick rate.  The first four weeks of this season has been up and down, but I had a strong 11-5 Week 4 which pushed me up to 37-26 overall.  That’s 58.7% pick rate, so I’m working my way back to my average!

Keep an eye on the first game of the week.  I picked the Patriots, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the Bucs pull it out at home in light of the Patriots last place defense and Gronk officially inactive.  Also, I have faith in the Rams at home, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Seahawks pick up where they left off in Week 4 and continue to roll on offense.  Last, being a Bears fan, I’m really curious as to how Mitchell Trubisky will do in his first regular season start.  Under the lights in prime time will be trial by fire for him, but he looked solid in the preseason and the Vikings no longer have Dalvin Cook and probably won’t have Bradford back yet, so I’m cautiously predicting a Bears win.  Or, I could just be overly optimistic.

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.

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.

Scott King’s Picks

Scott King’s Thoughts:

Not a bad week considering where I was last week.  Teams are starting to come into focus, but there are still some questions out there.  The Lions and Panthers game is suddenly extremely relevant, who would have thought? #onepride
