    Week 5 NFL Games
    By: John Morgan

    When in doubt, pick the underdog. There have already been 23 upsets (i.e., the team favored to win lost) in the NFL thus far. In week three the underdogs went 10-6 straight up, and dogs have won a minimum of five games each week so far this season....

    Starting players are more and more being kept on the sidelines during pre-season games... which means the first three games are their pre-season, thus causing some unpredictable play. (add in that weaker teams tend to play their starters more in pre-season)

    then of course there's the old saw of Parity in the NFL

    I'm hoping Cleveland can beat the Giants. That's one team that I don't want anywhere near the playoffs. If the Pats are able to get back to THE GAME, I don't want to see the Giants.

    Browns beating the Giants 14-0


    The Giant's back seven is not very good right now, due in part to injuries. Of course in order to take advantage of that you need to get your pass off before their pass rush gets to the QB - not an easy task.

    Just coming in from a few hours of fall brush clearing. :Love that cool fall air. I see Cleveland is up on the Gints. Be quite an upset if that lasts. Pitt and Phil looks like a good game, but somehow I feel like I'd rather have Packers-Colts. Oh well .. Red Zone til Pats game.

    LOL -- Eagles (Vick; end zone)) and Fins both fumble in the end zone at the same time on Red ZOne channel. And Chiefs fumble vs Ravens.

    Dolphins turn the ball over on a fumble for the second time in the first nine minutes against Cincy.

    No clue why the first play at first and goal is not a handoff to McCoy

    (Unless he was hurt)

    Its amazing the Eagles are 3-1 with Vick, they should give Foles a shot.
