PFT’s Week 5 2022 NFL Draft

Good pictures

It’s been a really good week. In two ways.

One, I went 12-4. Two, I took three more games in a head-to-head matchup with MDS.

I again won three of the five disagreements. I went 12-4 for the week and finished MDS 9-7.

On the year, I’m now 37-26-1. MDS is 30-33-1.

This week, we only disagreed on three games. Scroll to the selections.

Colts (+3.5) at Broncos.

M.D.S: The Broncos have underachieved Russell Wilsonfirst season, but the Colts were no less accomplished Matt RyanThe first season of The Broncos would pick up their third win.

Selection of MDS: Broncos 20, Colts 10.

Florio took it: Broncos look worse than 2-2. Again, the Colts look worse than 1-2-1. Neither do they Jonathan Taylor. Seems significant.

Florio’s Choice: Broncos 17, Colts 9.


Giants (+8) vs. Packers

M.D.S: The Giants are a surprising 3-1 and not as good as that record suggests. The Packers are probably better than 3-1 suggests, and should win easily.

Florio took it: Bakers make their first trip to London a memorable one. For the Giants, it was unforgettable.

Florio’s Choice: Packers 34, Giants 16.


Steelers (+14) at Bills.

M.D.S: The Steelers are two-touchdown backs, shaping up to be one of their worst seasons in the last half century. They would keep it a little closer than two touchdowns, but the Bills would win comfortably.

Selection of MDS: Bills 30, Steelers 20.

Florio took it: The Steelers were the last team to trail by 14 points after the merger. They are not good enough to succeed. But they are enough to hide.

Bears (+7) at Vikings.

M.D.S: Justin Fields His second season is trending increasingly toward “draft bust” territory. The Vikings’ defense isn’t very good, but I can’t see the Bears’ offense scoring much against anyone right now.

Selection of MDS: Vikings 22, Bears 10.

Florio took it: The Vikings have found a way to win on a consistent basis. That’s better than the last two years, when they found a way to lose on a consistent basis.

Florio’s Choice: Vikings 27, Bears 21.


Lions at Patriots (+3).

M.D.S: We don’t know who is playing quarterback for the Patriots, but any offense should score a lot of points against a terrible Lions defense.

Selection of MDS: Patriots 38, Lions 31.

Florio took it: Bill Belichick can slow down the Detroit offense, and the Patriots will have enough offense to outscore the Lions — especially since former Detroit coach Matt Patricia is eager to get a crack at his old team.

Florio’s Choice: Patriots 34, Lions 20.


Seahawks (+5) at Saints.

M.D.S: Geno Smith This season is off to a great start, but he’ll come back down to earth on Sunday in New Orleans.

Florio’s Choice: Jets 23, Dolphins 20.


Falcons (+8.5) at Buccaneers.

Florio’s Choice: Buccaneers 30, Falcons 13.


Titans (-2.5) in commanders.

Florio’s Choice: Titans 21, Commanders 10.

49ers (-6.5) at Panthers.

M.D.S: The Panthers have looked like they haven’t made any progress in three years as Matt Rhule has tried to rebuild the franchise. Even though it’s a long journey in a short week, the 49ers make it through.
