NFL Week 5 Picks Split Over Patriots-Broncos, Expect Jets to Continue Falling Hard (Podcast)

NFL Week 5 Picks Split Over Patriots-Broncos, Expect Jets to Continue Falling Hard (Podcast)The Patriots and Jets may be technically tied atop the AFC East with identical 2-2 records, but that's about where the similarities end.

While the Patriots are coming off of a convincing come-from-behind win in Buffalo last week, the Jets are coming off of a beatdown at the hands of the 49ers.

Both teams face big games again this week with New England hosting Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, while New York welcomes one of the league's best teams in the Houston Texans to the Meadowlands on Monday night.

NESN.com senior assistant editor Mike Cole and assistant editor Ricky Doyle are back with their Week 5 picks, and they're split on a lot this week. See their picks below and hear them explain those picks in the podcast at the bottom.
