NFL Week 5 Picks:  5 Games That Will Go Down to the Wire

Michael Turner is on his way to his fifth straight 1,000-plus-yard season.

This week there are a handful of games that should go down to the wire. I've chosen to key in on five of those games and provide predictions, as I think they could be swing picks for those in weekly pools.  

Accordingly, two of the five games I've gone with upsets, though none of these games are likely to be lopsided victories.

With so many overtime games already, we're looking at another week that could provide a lot of excitement.  The Dolphins have dropped games in overtime in each of the last two weeks, and will be facing a tough Bengals squad that should push this one down to wire again.  

In fact, the Dolphins game has the biggest point spread of these five games at only five points on Bookmaker.  The other four games are predicted to be decided by a field goal or less.
