Kevin Schroeder's week 5 NFL picks

14 games this week with two teams on the bye and Tennessee vs. Buffalo off the board. Three best bets this week and the logic is the same for all three picks: a good team pounds a lousy team. Or in Dallas’s case, a good offense at least. An offense good enough to hang enough on a crummy Giants defense to more than overcome their own crummy defense’s shortcomings. Of the three good teams facing lousy ones, I’m most confident in Seattle, so they’re my lock of the week.
