It's Thursday of Week 5 in the NFL, which means two things: there's some divisional matchup on tonight and it's time to announce our picks for this weeks games.
This week, the Green Bay Packers host the 2-2 St. Louis Rams, who come in fresh off an upset win over the Cardinals in Arizona. That game was Arizona's first loss on the season and it pulled the Rams into a tie for second in the division with Seattle.
Speaking of Seattle, they get a tough road trip again this week as they play an early game against the Cincinnati Bengals. You'll see that APC is somewhat split on that game, but overall the consensus is that the Bengals continue on to 5-0 while the Seahawks slip back another game to 2-3.
As for the other teams in the NFC North, the Vikings are off while the Bears are in Kansas City and the Lions host the aforementioned Cardinals. APC picks the 1-3 Chiefs to beat Chicago and the Lions to continue looking for their first win of the season.
