Week 5 – Survivor Pool Pick (2012)

Posted by in NFL Survivor Pool Picks on October 4th, 2012 | Comment »

The survivor pool that I am in is already down to 3 teams from 50. There was a flury of upsets in week 3 — Chiefs beat Saints, Raiders beat Steelers, and Titans beat Lions. Hopefully, you went with Bears over Rams in week 3. Our week 4 survivor pool pick was Ravens over Browns. Let’s recap which teams are out for us:

Week 1 – Houston Texans over Miami Dolphins
Week 2 – Cincinnati Bengals over Cleveland Browns
Week 3 – Chicago Bears over St. Louis Rams
Week 4 – Baltimore Ravens over Cleveland Browns

There are a few games to choose from in week 5. As you can see, my favorite strategy for survivor pools is to take whatever team is playing the Cleveland Browns. This week that’s the New York Giants. I’m always hesitant to pick the Giants since they ended my 2011 survivor pool after getting upset by the visiting Seattle Seahawks. The Giants simply tend to not play up to their full potential against weaker opponents.

Other options for you to choose from are the Green Bay Packers over Indianapolis Colts, but the Packers are on the road this week. The last option that I see is the San Francisco 49ers at home over the Buffalo Bills.

I don’t think you can miss with either the Giants, Packers, or 49ers, it’s simply a matter of personal choice. If we look ahead to future weeks, Atlanta Falcons over Oakland Raiders in week 6 seems like the pick. In week 7, you’ll like want to take the 49ers at home over the Seahawks. In week 8, you with the Green Bay Packers at home over the Jaguars.

Since I am trying to save the 49ers and Packers for more favorable matchups in upcoming weeks, I think you go with the Giants over the Browns in this spot. After dropping last week’s game to the Eagles, I’m sure you see a solid effort from the Giants in order to keep pace in the division. I don’t smell a let-down game from the Giants.

Week 5 Survivor Pool Pick: New York Giants over Cleveland Browns.
