2013 Week 5 NFL Picks: APC Predicts Packers to Beat Lions at Lambeau Again

Leon Halip

The APC writers submit their week 5 picks, which see us confident in a Packers victory.

After a couple of rough weeks, the Acme Packing Company staff finally bounced back well in week 4, as six out of the seven of us picking games were at least 3 games over.500 on the week. With the Packers off, though, there was no personal stake in any of the games, so as they take the field against the Lions on Sunday we have to try to remove personal biases once again. I'm not so sure it worked.

As always, check out the FanPosts, where mike_o runs the APC community Pick'em contest.

Ultimately, it appears that all of us have faith in Clay Matthews' return (I know that's why I'm picking Green Bay). Here are this week's picks:

Game Tex Jason Josh Tony Dan Eric
Bills vs. Browns CLE CLE CLE CLE CLE CLE
Ravens vs. Dolphins MIA MIA BAL BAL MIA MIA
Saints vs. Bears NO NO NO NO CHI NO
Patriots vs. Bengals NE NE CIN NE NE NE
Lions vs. Packers GB GB GB GB GB GB
Seahawks vs. Colts IND SEA IND SEA IND SEA
Jaguars vs. Rams STL STL STL STL JAX STL
Chiefs vs. Titans KC KC KC KC KC KC
Eagles vs. Giants NYG NYG PHI PHI NYG NYG
Panthers vs. Cardinals CAR ARI CAR CAR ARI CAR
Broncos vs. Cowboys DEN DEN DEN DEN DEN DEN
Texans vs. 49ers SF SF SF SF SF SF
Chargers vs. Raiders SD SD SD SD SD SD
Jets vs. Falcons ATL ATL ATL ATL ATL ATL

You probably notice a lot of unanimous games again this week, including a few that surprised me. I figured somebody would pick the Bills to win tonight, and that there would be at least one person picking the Texans or Titans. Only a couple of games are real toss-ups this week, as we're pretty well split on Seattle-Indy and Carolina-Arizona.

As for the overall standings, there really wasn't much ground gained by anyone. Eric maintained his one-game lead over Jason, as both of them went 9-6. Nobody was more than one game better or worse than that record, but VCF led the way at 10-5.

Author Overall Record Last Week
Eric 43-20 9-6
Jason 42-21 9-6
VCF 41-22 10-5
Josh 37-26 8-7
Tony 37-23 9-6
Dan 37-26 9-6
Tex 35-28 9-6
