NFL Week 5 Game Picks: Can the New Orleans Saints build momentum?

1 of 3

After beating the Dallas Cowboys in dramatic fashion last week at home, the New Orleans Saints travel to Philadelphia to continue their winning ways and inch towards .500. While this week’s night games are far from appealing, the noon slate on Sunday will be very exciting. Let’s go ahead and take a look at our staff’s NFL Week 5 Game Picks.

Thursday Night Football: Indianapolis Colts (2-2) at Houston Texans (1-3)

A few hours from now, the Colts will face the Texans at NRG Stadium in an AFC South matchup with a lot of uncertainty. Will Andrew Luck’s shoulder check out ok? Who starts under center for the Texans and how will he fare this time around? The Colts are a major disappointment this season, starting 0-2 and winning two games late against rather weak division opponents. Frank Gore might be one of the most disappointing free agency signings in recent memory. However, the Colts are almost guaranteed to make the playoffs in a division with two young signal callers in Mariota and Bortles while the Texans have the choice between a rock and a hard place at quarterback.
