NFL Week 5 picks

Former Bill Jason Peters is out this week for the Eagles with a hamstring injury.

What was that last week, Bills? Losing a 17-3 halftime lead was a major choke job. Chan Gailey had been the king of halftime adjustments this season, yet his offense only managed three points in the second half against Cincinnati. The Bills didn’t even have a turnover; they just sucked.

Luckily, we’re used to games like these. They still hurt to witness, but Buffalonians are basically pros at dealing with letdowns. The Bills are 2.5 point underdogs this week at home against Mike Vick and the underachieving Eagles. Last week was a step back, but I still want to believe the Bills are for real.
