Holy schmoly, another NFL London game with Jags and Bills plus our Week 5 Picks podcast?
Did Christmas come early?
With the NFL giving us another great game between the Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars, the guys look at all the other games that are popping this weekend, with a full slate of top notch games following the 2:30 game.
To listen to the podcast, just have a click here, and let all your NFL picks get suitably questioned by the half-assed analysis of Ryan and Wade.
London Game Notes
Hope everyone heading to the game has a great time, and the weather looks so good, global warming is okay for a weekend such as this.
There is no transit strike on for Sunday (hooray), so folks should have an easy-peasy journey to the game.
Arsenal is playing Manchester City at 4:30pm on Sunday, which means that north London is going to be a pickle to get around post game.
The match should finish after 6pm, so expect a double flush of fans looking to hit the rails post game.
Week 5 Picks
You’ll get most of the fun bag shenanigans on the podcast, but for the folks looking for a few hot tips as the turtle head rises from the steam-shute, we got you covered.
Here are a few of the games that the guys think might be some traction action.
-2 Titans (2-2) vs Colts (202) +43
This is a hot steaming pile of nothing game, that even the flies don’t want to be a part of, but one of these teams has to come to London next weekend.
The Titans have no O-line and the D secondary is giving up big yards, so how are they going to stop the Colts with a running QB?
The Colts too have a slew of injuries that beset both sides of the ball, but Jonathan Taylor is back? Is that good?
Both guys think that this is a stinker, but has some fantasy gold in the nuggets of dung.
Ryan likes the Titans to rise above the Indianapolis team at home, and Derek Henry a win.
Wade smells the rot on the glove, but likes the tandem of Richardson and Pittman to put up the points.
Ryan-Titans 24 Colts 21
Wade-Colts 20 Titans 18
Texans (2-2) vs -2 Falcons (2-2) +41.5
CJ Stroud and the Texans have been causing enough fire to justify a smokehouse BBQ session, as the D has also responded by keeping games tight with tough opponents.
Nothing to lose, but something to prove.
Atlanta is coming home after a sad sack loss to the Jags in London that made many of the players question why they even got a stupid passport in the first place
The Falcons and the Ridder scheme isn’t working, so how do they get off the run?
Ryan likes the Texans to win here, as his habit of betting on the Falcons in the past brought him nothing but trouble.
Wade is taking the Falcons at home only because the Texans aren’t very good against an inside run unit that can gash them for yards.
Ryan-Texans 21 Falcons 17
Wade-Falcons 23 Texans 19
That’s it for our Week 5 Picks podcast, make sure that you listen to the whole thing on all of the good audio channels aside from ours.
