JZN NFL Predictions vs. Spread (2011): 13 Free Week 5 Picks

Picks subject to change based on injuries that change my opinion later in the week

Upset picks
Cincinnati Bengals and Tennessee Titans

13 Free Picks for Week 5 of 2011-2012 NFL season
The bold teams are the winners. The teams with point spreads are my picks against the spread. The last number is my projected score for the game. That should give readers an idea for what I think the total of the game will be. Key injuries don't necessarily mean that the player won't play.  Keep yourself updated with injuries throughout the week. Here are injury reports from CBS Sports. Injuries current as of October 5, 2011. Players on IR not necessarily listed.
