Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 5 NFL Predictions

Welcome to Week 5 of the 2021 NFL season. We have only one undefeated team left in the NFL and that is the Arizona Cardinals. The Las Vegas Raiders fell to the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night. The Denver Broncos lost to the Baltimore Ravens as Teddy Bridgewater went down with a concussion. Carolina was another undefeated that went down as they fell to the Dallas Cowboys. Finally, the Los Angeles Rams are no longer undefeated as they were beaten down by the Arizona Cardinals. My Week 4 record was 6-3 and my overall mark is now 25-15. The winning percentage went up a little from 61.3 to 62.5%. This week I’ll be predicting a total of 7 games. Hopefully, I can get closer to that 70% winning percentage mark. Let’s get it!

 

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 5 NFL PredictionsDaddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 5 NFL PredictionsWe kick the week off with a great matchup from the NFC West. The Los Angeles Rams will travel up north to Seattle to face the Seahawks. The Rams were looked at as possibly the best team in the league before falling to Arizona. They just didn’t get beat, but they were bullied on both sides of the ball. This is the first time the team faces adversity with Matthew Stafford behind center. How will the Rams respond on both sides of the ball? Seattle beat the 49ers last week and avoided starting the season 1-3. In the NFC West, you don’t want to start the season off bad because it could spell trouble. The offensive line will need to protect Russell Wilson if you have any chance of winning. This should be a really good one and I’m going with the Rams. Los Angeles Win 26-21

 

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 5 NFL PredictionsDaddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 5 NFL PredictionsWho had the Green Bay Packers taking on the Cincinnati Bengals as one of the big games of Week 5? Hear we have the Green Bay Packers travel to Cincinnati to face the surprising Bengals. Who remembers when the Packers were blown out in Week 1 and some panicked? Aaron Rodgers is someone that I’d never count out and now they have won three games in a row. The Packers are hurting on the defensive side seeing they have a couple of key pieces out. As far as Cincinnati goes, they are hurting also because Joe Mixon could miss the game with an ankle injury. How will Joe Burrow fare against Aaron Rodgers in this high profile QB matchup. The Bengals are hoping to get the win and at least remain tied with Baltimore and Cleveland. I’m picking Rodgers to find a way to win. Green Bay Win 27-24

 

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 5 NFL PredictionsDaddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 5 NFL PredictionsWe head to Las Vegas as the Raiders head back home to host the Chicago Bears. Justin Fields looked much better and more comfortable in his second start. The Bears beat the Lions to go 2-2 for the season. Unfortunately, their leading rusher David Montgomery will miss about a month with a knee injury. Chicago will need to rely on their defense to help Justin Fields if they have a chance against the Raiders. Las Vegas is coming off a heartbreaking loss on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers. The offense looked horrible in the first half, but in the second they came alive. The defense was torched by Justin Herbert and the powerful Chargers offense. Can they rebound from their first loss and get back in the winning column? I’m picking the Raiders to win this one. Las Vegas Win 31-17

 

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 5 NFL PredictionsDaddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 5 NFL PredictionsWe stay in the AFC in what could be one of the better games of the weekend. The Cleveland Browns travel west to Los Angeles to face the Chargers. The Browns seem to have found their identity as a team. They use a stout and hungry defense to frustrate the opposing offense. On offense, they rely on Baker Mayfield not to turn the ball over while running Chubb and Hunt. This is a great formula that has them as one of the better teams in the league. The Los Angeles Chargers could also lay claim to being one of the better teams in the league. On offense, they have weapons everywhere and Justin Herbert is as good as anyone. The defensive line gets after opposing QBs and the young secondary is as good as any in the league. I’m on the Chargers bandwagon. Los Angeles Win 24-17

 

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 5 NFL PredictionsDaddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 5 NFL PredictionsWe head out west in another matchup between NFC West foes. The San Francisco 49ers travel to Arizona to battle Kyler Murray and the Cardinals. The 49ers could be turning to Trey Lance for this game because Jimmy Garoppolo‘s leg injury. With the way the Cardinals defense has been playing lately this could spell trouble for San Francisco. On the other hand, Trey Lance could show why the 49ers traded up to draft him so high in the 2021 NFL Draft. Arizona remains the only undefeated team in the league after the first month of the season. Kyler Murray has been amazing, and the defense have looked phenomenal. Can they slow down all the weapons the Niners have on offense? This is a tough one, but I’m picking the Cardinals to remain undefeated. Arizona Win 31-20

 

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 5 NFL PredictionsDaddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 5 NFL PredictionsWe have the Sunday Night game which is a rematch of the 2020 AFC Championship game. The Buffalo Bills will travel to Kansas City to face the Chiefs. Before the season started, many experts had Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen leading MVP candidates. The Bills dropped their first game to Pittsburgh at home but have outscored the last 3 opponents 118-21. During that three game stretch they have pitched two shutouts in the process. How will the defense fare against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs offense? The problem with Kansas City has been their defense as they made Jalen Hurts look like Donavan McNabb. The defense is giving up an average of over 31 points a game. This could be a high scoring game and I’m picking the Chiefs to edge the Bills. Kansas City Win 41-38

 

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 5 NFL PredictionsDaddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 5 NFL PredictionsWe have the Monday Night game as the Indianapolis Colts travel to Baltimore to face the Ravens. The Colts finally picked up their first win last week against Miami. Before the season, many people picked the Colts to be a sleeper team. While it’s still early in the season, they could win and try to keep pace with Tennessee. Can Carson Wentz lead the Colts to a win in a tough Baltimore environment? Baltimore opened the season with a loss in Las Vegas. Ever since then, they have reeled off three wins in a row despite all the injuries plaguing this team. The defense has been tough, and the offense continues to flourish behind Lamar Jackson. The Ravens are trying to keep pace with the Browns and Bengals. I’m picking the Ravens to win and bolt to first place in the division. Baltimore Win 30-17
