It’s Friday and that means The Stack has to make picks for week 5 in the NFL. Last week was a much better week, going 11-4. That means through four weeks, we’re 37-26. Let’s keep improving. Off to a good start this week after the St. Louis Rams 17-3 win over the Arizona Cardinals. Boy the Rams defense was ferocious. They sacked Kevin Kolb nine times. The Cardinals are no longer unbeaten and look like they have some big problems on the offensive line. This game was not the most pleasant to watch though. And the Rams have lost wide receiver Danny Amendola for quite some time with a broke collarbone. Some very intriguing games on the schedule this week. We will talk plenty about the Red Sox firing Bobby Valentine next week as well as the NHL canceling the first two weeks of the regular season, but for now let’s make some predictions and preview some games in “the stack” for today, Friday, October 5:
Miami Dolphins @ Cincinnati Bengals 1:00 PM ET CBS
The Dolphins looked good last week against the Cardinals. Ryan Tannehill threw for over 400 yards. But the Bengals return home for only the second time this season. They’ll be ready. Fun side bet, who will have more yards: Brian Hartline or A.J. Green. I might say Hartline in a losing effort.
Prediction: Bengals 24 Dolphins 17
