NFL Week 5 picks: Steeler Nation's eyes on the Jets and Falcons Monday night

It's a ways off until the Steelers opponents will play, but we'll pick the week's games anyway.

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports
The slobber-knocker of Thursday night's game (Bills at Browns) will be watched by dozens and dozens of people, I'm sure, and even the drama caused by the release (and likely subsequent week or two out of the game) isn't enough to dampen the enthusiasm I have for non-Steelers football weekend.

That makes the Jets at Falcons game the spotlight here, considering the Steelers will head to New York in Week 6 for a showdown with the Jets.

The Falcons are currently favored by 9.5, and it's hard to argue with that. We're taking them to win and cover. SAN FRANCISCO (-1.5) over Houston San Diego (-5) over OAKLAND Carolina (even) over ARIZONA DALLAS (+9.5) over Denver MIAMI (-3.5) over Baltimore Eagles (+1) over GIANTS Seattle (-4) over INDIANAPOLIS Jacksonville (+8) over ST. LOUIS GREEN BAY (-3.5) over Detroit Kansas City (-3) over TENNESSEE New Orleans (-3.5) over CHICAGO CINCINNATI (+2) over New England
