Let's see what the writers of the site think will happen in Week 5

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

It is time for our weekly staff picks. Last week, everyone did well. Tyler Derby and Skii won the week at 12-3, while Alex Mann was the worst at a solid 9-6. I pulled into a tie for first with Randy Fields. And, true to form, some unanimous picks failed us. Here are last week's results and total records.

What about this week's picks? Those who picked Indy turned out to be smart. But who knew a 40-year old Matt Hasselbeck could still play?

Anyway, here are the staff picks for Week 5.

Let's keep an eye out on those unanimous picks. There will most certainly be an upset since everyone picked the Giants, the Pats, the Cards, the Jags, the Packers and the Falcons to win.

Whose picks look the best so far?
