MMQB Staff Week 5 NFL Picks

Who's getting a W in Week 5? The MMQB staff makes its picks.

It's Week 5! Like last week, we're not 100% sure how many games will played on Sunday. Positive COVID-19 tests have put certain games in jeopardy. And we've known all along, but gotten some fresh reminders, that it's also possible some individual players will be held out of games as well. This time last week, we didn't know Cam Newton would have to be replaced by Brian Hoyer and Jarrett Stidham. Such is life picking games a few days in advance in 2020. We're all just doing the best we can.

Our group is unanimous on a bunch of games this week. But, as always, there are some brave pickers predicting upsets. You can scroll down for season records to see who you want to believe.

Here's who is picking games straight up for the MMQB this year:

Albert Breer, Senior NFL Reporter
Andrew Brandt, Business of Football Columnist
Gary Gramling, Senior Editor
Mitch Goldich, Editor/Writer
Conor Orr,
Staff Writer
Jenny Vrentas, Senior Writer
