THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 5

Welcome my fantasy brethren to another edition of The Prognosticator, may it mess with your mind. The humblest of apologies but I’m on the road for some fantasy business, which is actual business for me, and I’m putting The Progno together while also trying to pretend like I’m working on something super important on my laptop.. but I think they may be on to me..

How to read the table: The table shows how a team will do Passing and Rushing in the upcoming week of the NFL. Red is HOT, Yellow is WARM, White is NORMAL, Light Blue is COLD and Dark Blue is FREEZING COLD. Play players from teams that are Red and Yellow, avoid players from teams that are Light or Dark Blue and expect average days from teams that are White.

All times are Eastern

Indianapolis Colts at New England Patriots – Thursday 8:20pm
It’d hard not to like New England tonight, especially after last week. Indianapolis is without T.Y. Hilton, Marlon Mack and Jack Doyle which is a lot of pieces to be missing. Julian Edelman is back and he’ll be ready. Expect the Patriots to try and keep this one on the ground as they grind right through the Colts.

Favorite: New England Patriots by 10.5
Prediction: New England Patriots 27 – Indianapolis Colts 20

Tennessee Titans at Buffalo Bills – Sunday 1:00pm
Everyone’s picking the Tennessee defense this week since they are playing Buffalo and that’s right but what many are missing is that Buffalo’s defense is solid too. Ignore this game in general, it’s not going to work out well for either team.

Favorite: Tennessee Titans by 3.5
Prediction: Tennessee Titans 20 – Buffalo Bills 17

Denver Broncos at New York Jets – Sunday 1:00pm
The Jets will struggle against the Broncos defense but Denver will be able to run the ball in this and will run well.

Prediction: New York Jets 27 – Denver Broncos 20

Miami Dolphins at Cincinnati Bengals – Sunday 1:00pm
Steer clear of the ground games from both teams but play Cincinnati’s passing game and in a pinch, don’t neglect what Miami can do in the air to Cincinnati’s defense.

Favorite: Cincinnati Bengals by 6
Prediction: Cincinnati Bengals 34 – Miami Dolphins 24

Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns – Sunday 1:00pm
The stars of this game will be when Baltimore throws the ball and it will be magic. Cleveland can run on Baltimore but game flow could be a problem for them but they should stay close enough in the score to keep running.

Favorite: Baltimore Ravens by 3
Prediction: Baltimore Ravens 31 – Cleveland Browns 24
