NFL Picks, Week 5: Take the Rams

Will the St. Louis Rams keep you alive in your pick 'em pool this week?

Scott Kane-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The St. Louis Rams open up Week 5 in the NFL with their second division game in as many weeks. Actually, it's their second game in five days, coming off a 19-13 win over Seattle on Sunday. Here's the question: Are you ballsy enough to take the Rams in your survivor pool?

Probably not. This figures to be a pretty close game. Hell, it might be the best game yet on what's been an underwhelming lineup for Thursday Night Football, the NFL's new package built to sell even more television rights.

Not many experts are taking the Rams this week, not with an offense that hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 2 against one of the toughest defenses in the league. The panel at ESPN was split, as was Yahoo. The prediction machine at CBS picked Arizona.

As for me, you know who I'm taking. I'll say the Rams win this one, though it'll be a fight.
