NFL picks and predictions Week 5: Falcons vs. Redskins

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Atlanta Falcons and Washington Redskins will battle at FedEx Field on Sunday afternoon.

The Washington Redskins will play host to the undefeated Atlanta Falcons on Sunday at FedEx Field.

Atlanta is one of three teams without a loss on the season and feature a spectacular offense. Matt Ryan has led the way, with Julio Jones and Roddy White hauling in passes at a rapid clip.

The Falcons almost lost last Sunday against Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers, but drove late to set up a game-winning field goal from Matt Bryant.

Robert Griffin III has been very impressive thus far, leading D.C.'s team to a 2-2 record. Washington is coming off a 24-22 win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in which it rallied in the final seconds.

On ESPN, the six experts who have made picks are split between the two sides. Over at Yahoo, both Mike Silver and Jason Cole went with Mike Smith's squad.

CBSsports.com only had one analyst, Mike Freeman, go with the Redskins straight up. Against the spread, Ryan Wilson joins Freeman on the Washington bandwagon.
