NFL Picks Week 5 2018: Game Predictions by Football Writers

New, comments

Predicting the winners of this week’s NFL games.

NFL: NFC Championship-Minnesota Vikings at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Bleeding Green Nation writers picks are in for Week 5 of the 2018 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, I am now on top of the standings.

When it comes to this week’s Philadelphia Eagles versus Minnesota Vikings game, the Eagles are unanimously favored by BGN writers. SB Nation’s FanPulse results show that BGN readers fans think the Eagles will win by an average of three points. Vikings fans, meanwhile, expect Minnesota to lose by an average of one point. (Sign up for BGN FanPulse here)

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.

Let’s get to this week’s picks!
