Mikey returns to form without having to buy a new crystal ball. Can it continue?
Wow. Mikey's Crystal Ball was looking great at 10-3 before Lawrence Tynes dropped a near impossible boot 2 yards short and Tony Romo became Tony Romo again. But 10-5 is better than 4-12 any day. With that, let's have a look at Week 5.....
Arizona at St. Louis-How much mileage will be saved if the Rams move back to Los Angeles, thereby keeping every NFC West team in, you know, the Western time zone? These are the things I think about when these teams show up on my TV, because the football itself isn't something I'm crazy about. And I still can't believe when it comes to Arizona, I just can't. Cardinals 23, Rams 17
Cleveland at NY Giants-If you are not nervous, you are not paying attention. I want Tom Coughlin to convince the Giants that this is the Super Bowl, because otherwise they will start looking ahead to San Francisco, and I want them to remember that beat down suffered in Cleveland four years ago on Monday night, that I think was also in Week 5. There was Week 5's home loss to the Seahawks last year. Then there is the obvious-you absolutely cannot lose to an 0-4 team. Giants 27, Browns 13
Baltimore at Kansas City-Mikey will be at this game, watching the continuation of Jamaal Charles playing the role of Chris Johnson, keeping one eye on the scoreboard and hoping to see the Giants ring up some points. Ravens 24, Chiefs 14
Seattle at Carolina-Will Russell Wilson ever top 200 yards passing? Will Cam be able to do more damage than Aaron Rodgers against this suddenly tough Seahawks' D? No, and yes. Panthers 23, Seahawks 19
Buffalo at San Francisco-Boy, this one should be interesting. Not. Niners 34, Bills 10
Denver at New England-Peyton against Brady, the sequel. Josh McDaniels running a victory lap to fire up the crowd after his Pats demolish the Broncos at Foxboro. If you picture it, it will happen. Patriots 37, Broncos 34
San Diego at New Orleans-Drew Brees against his former team. Drew Brees trying to will his awful team to their first win of the season in Week 5. I'd pick a blowout for the Saints here, but they don't have a defense. Saints 30, Chargers 27
Houston at NY Jets-By all accounts, the Jets should be 1-3 on their way to 1-4, but Joe Philbin gifted a win to them two Sundays ago. And if the Jets struggled against the Niners, you may want to look away from the TV on Monday night. Texans 27, Jets 10
Last week: 10-5
Season record: 35-28
