By The Numbers: Week 5, 2015


This past weekend really put my mind at ease. The past few years, both the 49ers and the Seahawks have been the bane of the Packers in the playoffs. If the first quarter of the season is any indication of how the rest will go, I feel like the Packers are in the best form they’ve been in since their last Super Bowl run, but have a stronger run game to boot. It takes away some of the worry knowing that we can beat some of the teams that have taken us down in the past, and they don’t seem like obstacles anymore. There are still some tough games on the schedule certainly, but at least the games I had my eyes on have gone in the Packers’ favor.


The 49ers will be lucky to make the playoffs, with how bad Colin Krappernick (Sackorpick) is playing. They honestly would have a better time benching him and letting Blaine Gabbert take over. Who knows, maybe he’d turn things around much like Kap did a few years back. Seattle on the other hand, is looking a little better, outside of that terrible call at the end of the Lions game, which basically gave them the win. I would normally just laugh something like this off, but it brought back nightmares of the Fail Mary play a few years ago, and that pissed me off. Seriously refs, get your shit together.


Green Bay is now one of 6 remaining teams who are undefeated, along with the Falcons and Panthers in the NFC, and the Patriots, Bengals and Broncos. It remains to be seen who will be the last team standing, but I have a feeling that the Packers have the edge in the NFC. Honestly, who cares about the AFC anyway? Cheaters and Dinosaurs. Whoop dee do. Enough shit talking, on with the picks:

Colts 21, Texans 13
Falcons 31, Skins 14
Ravens 20, Browns 10
Bengals 17, Seachickens 7
Packers 27, Rams 14
Chiefs 20, Bears 7
Saints 24, Eagles 20
Jags 17, Buccs 3
Bills 28, Titans 10
Cardinals 21, Lions 17
Patriots 38, Cowboys 20
Broncos 30, Raiders 14
Giants 27, 49ers 7
Steelers 20, Chargers 10
