NFL Weekly Picks - Week 5

Thu, Oct 5, 2023

So the first semester of the NFL season is over, and we've notched a respectable 13-7 on the Cell Door Locks and we're 2-2 on the Upset picks. Still trying to claw back to .500 overall. A solid week should get us there. To my Dolphins fans: Don't panic. We'll get a shot at redemption against Josh Allen on Jan 7, potentially for the division title. And we'll have Jalen Ramsey defending Stefon Diggs in that game. In the meantime, we can feast on the Giants and Panthers at home over the next two weeks. Finally, a shoutout to Pine Forest High School's own Devon Witherspoon. The greatest Pensacola area Seahawk since Doug Baldwin. Amazing how many legendary athletes the Florida Panhandle produces. Mr. Witherspoon appears to be the next man to carry the torch. Two sacks and a 96-yard pick six on MNF?!? That's one way to introduce yourself to the sports world. Here are this week’s picks…
