NFL picks Week 5: 49ers rebound, Raiders are Chiefs’ next victim, Bears top Brady’s Bucs

Long story short, here are my NFL picks for Week 5:

Bears 28, Bucs 24: The Bucs are too banged up to win their first of a franchise-record five prime-time games this season. Line: Bears +3 1/2

49ers 38, Dolphins 16: Look, if Joe Montana can exhume an old commercial to taunt Dan Marino on social media about their Super Bowl XIX showdown, then we’ll play along and mirror the final score. Line: 49ers -8

Chiefs 50, Raiders 35: Anyone else smell a 50-burger cooking amid that Kansas City barbecue? The Raiders are allowing 30 points per game. Line: Chiefs -13

Falcons 33, Panthers 28: Atlanta gets its first win, and needs about eight more to avoid an inevitable implosion of its staff and roster. Line: Falcons -2

Ravens 34, Bengals 21: Isn’t it surprising the Ravens lead the all-time series only 25-23 entering this one, and this would be their fourth straight win? Line: Bengals +13

Texans 27, Jaguars 20: Bill O’Brien’s exodus gives J.J. Watt, Deshaun Watson and any other Texan the jolt needed for victory No. 1. Line: Texans -6Related Articles

Rams 27, Washington 19: The best news about Washington’s quarterback change is not Kyle Allen starting over Dwayne Haskins, but rather the No. 2 job going to Alex Smith and his rebuilt leg. Comeback Player of Year striding closer to the field. Line: Rams -7

Browns 24, Colts 23: The Browns’ Kevin Stefanski improves to 4-1, and the last rookie coaches to start off that well were Green Bay’s Matt LaFleur, Atlanta’s Dan Quinn and the 49ers’ Jim Harbaugh. Line: Browns +1 1/2
