NFL Picks Week 5 2017: Predictions by Football Writers

New, comments

Predicting the winners of this week's NFL games.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Los Angeles Chargers Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The Bleeding Green Nation writers picks are in for Week 5 of the 2017 regular season schedule! Each week we'll predict the winners of each and every NFL game. We'll tally the results along the way and see who comes out on top at the end of the season.

After Week 4, the collective BGN Community is still in sole possession of first place. I always knew our readers were the smartest. That’s why you choose to read us! ;)

The Philadelphia Eagles are back at home this week and they’re unanimously favored over the Arizona Cardinals.

Feel free to post your own predictions or discuss the writer predictions in the comments. You can also vote for who you think will win the games. I’ll tally those results in a “BGN Community” column. Vote in the polls beneath the table. (Click here if you can’t see the polls.)

Let's get to this week's picks!
