 NFL Picks Week 5: Bleacher Report's Expert Consensus Predictions

If Week 4 of the NFL season didn't have enough excitement for you, Week 5 is sure to satisfy. As the season rolls on, it seems like the storylines, action and fantastic play just won't stop. It hardly feels like a quarter of the season is over, but here we are!

There are two big possibilities for game of the week honors as the Chicago Bears host the New Orleans Saints and the San Francisco 49ers take on the Houston Texans in a game that would probably be labeled something like "Contenders vs. Pretenders" if this was the WWE. The two teams that come out of these matchups with wins will likely find themselves back on the right track as the season heads toward its halfway mark. 

Other intriguing must-watch matchups include Detroit vs. Green Bay, New England vs. Cincinnati and Baltimore vs. Miami. Our experts seem pretty confident on the outcomes of those games, but in a crazy NFL where anything can happen, no one should be surprised if surprising results continue to take place. 

All those picks and more as you scroll ahead. Don't like our picks? Feel free to leave yours in the comments below.
