Baltimore Beatdown Game Picks: Week 5

It was a rough week for our writers, as not a single one broke even on their game picks for Week 4. Five staff members and the BB voters finished with a 7-8 record, while the remaining four writers were a putrid 4-11 or 5-10. Check out all the action below and be sure to vote on the polls for each of this week’s matchups!

Updated standings:

1) Taylor 41-22

2) Vasilis 40-23

3) Baltimore Beatdown Readers 39-24

4) Jake 38-25

5) Frank 37-26


Consensus Selections

Our writers were in agreement on the following matchups:

The undefeated Patriots are a surefire bet to defeat the reeling Redskins, who have yet to win a game this season amidst coaching turmoil and injuries. The Falcons have dealt with their share of struggles, too, making the Texans a popular pick for a victory.

Elsewhere, our writers envision the Eagles handling the Jets regardless of the status of quarterback Sam Darnold. The Chiefs have been a routine unanimous pick this year and this week is no different, even against a talented Colts squad.

“Lone Wolf”

Only two writers are by their lonesome this week:

  • Jake is taking the Raiders to upset the shorthanded Bears at home
  • Eric is alone in picking Joe Flacco and the Broncos to defeat the Chargers

“Coin Flip”

The biggest toss-up matchups in Week 5 were as follows:
