Was last week chaotic or what?

Lord have mercy, we had upset after upset in Week 5 — the Jaguars over the Bills, the Steelers taking out the Ravens and we also had the Falcons actually get a dub over a hot Texans team (I never like Atlanta in those situations) — and that’s just to name a few.

It was a week that gave me a rocky 8-6 record to bring me to 49-29 (63%) on the season.

In the forecast heading into Week 6, our Game of the Week most certainly has to be the matchup between the 4-1 Detroit Lions and 3-1 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with both teams coming in blazing hot. Definitely grab your popcorn for this one, especially when you have Mo-Town out here making plays like this:

Next on my slate is a battle of 3-2’s with the Indianapolis Colts taking on the Jacksonville Jaguars, I’m curious to see if the Jags can follow up with another big win after that massive upset against the Buffalo Bills last week.

And then, closing things out in my Top 3, I have the Seattle Seahawks and Cincinnati Bengals, with Joe Burrow & Co. desperate to get a win against a tough 3-1 Seattle team.

Let’s just hope I’m not hovering around .500 again this week … yuck … let’s get it!
