NFL Week 5 Picks

Week Five opens with one of the most interesting Thursday night matchups of the 2022 season. Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos will host Matt Ryan and the Indianapolis Colts in what could be an AFC Playoff preview.

Denver believes that Wilson is the missing piece to their playoff puzzle. The Broncos have fielded a solid defense for the past few seasons but have not had a credible quarterback since Peyton Manning retired.

Denver also has a new head coach with its newly imported quarterback. Nathaniel Hackett arrives after coordinating the offenses of the Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Green Bay Packers. For the past three seasons in Green Bay, the Packers put up some of their best offensive numbers in history. Of course, it helped that Hackett had Aaron Rodgers under center. Now he has the challenge and opportunity to design a different type of offense with the dual-threat Russell Wilson.

Meanwhile, the Colts have imported former Atlanta Falcons All-Pro quarterback Matt Ryan to recalibrate their Super Bowl quest. Last year the Colts brought in Carson Wentz, much to their eventual regret. Needing only one win in their final two games to make the postseason, Wentz and the Colts choked. First came a home loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. Following that was a loss at the Jacksonville Jaguars, the NFL’s worst team. The fact that Wentz could not close the playoff sale with such a favorable ending schedule could not and should not be forgiven. Matt Ryan brings instant credibility to the position for Indianapolis.

One of the weekend's best games is the late Sunday afternoon clash between the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams and the visiting Dallas Cowboys. There will be plenty of offensive weaponry on the field in a matchup that could be an NFC Playoff preview. Dallas showed marked improvement last year on both sides of the line.

ESPN Monday Night Football gets another fantastic matchup indicative of the NFL’s commitment to relaunch the brand. The Kansas City Chiefs and the Las Vegas Raiders were born as charter members of the American Football League in 1960 and have played in the same division ever since. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, the Raiders and Chiefs had one of the greatest and most impactful rivalries in the history of sports, pro or college. This year has the potential to rekindle the substance of the rivalry.

The Raiders have a new head coach, Josh McDaniels, who gets his second NFL head coaching shot after proving to be too young and immature in that role with the Denver Broncos last decade. McDaniels is best known as the longtime offensive coordinator of the New England Patriots. He inherits a ready-made playoff team led by underrated but record-setting quarterback Derek Carr. Carr has to be thrilled with the arrival of wide receiver Davante Adams from the Green Bay Packers. While with the Pack, Adams put up massive production numbers as Aaron Rodgers’ top receiver.

Of course, the Chiefs are led by the All-Pro tandem of quarterback Patrick Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce. The Chiefs blew their opportunity for a third consecutive Super Bowl appearance in their AFC Championship Game home loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. The defeat was seen by many as a warning of a highly competitive AFC that KC won’t be able to dominate anymore.
