Walker's AFC North picks
By James Walker
The AFC North blog split it's two division games in Week 4, as the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns pulled off big wins.
Now it's time to look ahead to Week 5 picks, which involves three AFC North teams playing outside the division. Here are the AFC North blog picks (all times are ET):
Denver Broncos (2-2) at Baltimore Ravens (3-1), Sunday at 1 p.m.
Skinny: The Broncos and AFC West teams in general have always been good matchups for the Ravens. Baltimore shows maturity by avoiding a Steelers hangover.
Pick: Ravens, 28-17
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-1) at Cincinnati Bengals (2-2), Sunday at 1 p.m.
Skinny: The Bucs are coming off the bye and I don't like the way the Bengals are playing. But Cincinnati should still win a closer-than-expected game at home.
Pick: Bengals, 21-17
Atlanta Falcons (3-1) at Cleveland Browns (1-3), Sunday at 1 p.m.
Skinny: Believe it or not, the Browns are actually 10-2 all-time against the Falcons. I like trends as much as the next person, but I'm not biting on this one.
Pick: Falcons, 21-14
Last week: 1-1
Comment: Not a bad start so far.
