NFL Week 5 Picks: Colts Fans Aren't Picking The Chiefs (Unsurprisingly)

SB Nation's Stampede Blue is looking at Week 5 NFL picks and taking....the Indianapolis Colts.

Real surprised the Colts fans pick the Colts to win, right?

Stampede Blue's prediction is that this will be a tight game into the fourth quarter but eventually Peyton Manning and Co. will pull away.

Don't let any TV coverage sway your opinion:  the Chiefs have played really, really well so far this season.  Their schedule has not been as easy as people have said, and they're coming off of a bye.  All recipes for disaster.With all that said, these are the kind of games that the Colts always seem to win, even if it isn't pretty.  I think it'll be a fairly low scoring game, coming down to the 4th quarter.  In a close game in the 4th, I'm really glad I'll be rooting for the team with Peyton Manning.

I think that's a pretty fair write up. Their goal is to get out to a lead and make the Chiefs play from behind, which is probably the key to beating Kansas City. I don't see the Chiefs making many double digit come backs this year, which is why the emphasis on starting fast is so critical.

Stampede Blue has a really good statistical look at the matchup in their Chiefs/Colts game preview.
