The 5 o’clock club is published Wednesday to Saturday

during the season Youth Montae Nicholson Jersey , and aims to provide a forum for reader-driven discussion at a time of day when there isn’t much NFL news being published. Feel free to introduce topics that interest you in the comments below.Obviously, we’ll be rooting for the Redskins at home against the Falcons.Prediction: Redskins win, 24-22.How about the other games?AFCvs NFCAs a general rule, we want to root for AFC teams to beat NFC teams.So, the rule of thumb tells us that we should exercise our rooting interest this way:Redskins fahttp://www.sndpic.com//nike_nfl_jerseys/nike_washington_redskins/nike_redskins_1659.jpgns should cheer for the Raiders to beat the 49ers —Honestly, I can’t follow my own advice here... I’ll be cheering for Kyle Shanahan’s 49ers to win against Jon Gruden’s Raiders, though with the Niners giving UDFA QB Mullens his first-ever start, I believe I took the Raiders for a ‘get well’ win in the Week 9 Pick’em contest.Prediction: Raiders win 24-20Redskins fans should cheer for the Bills to beat the Bears —There’s a couple of reasons I can’t follow this advice.First of all, I don’t think the Bills can win this one.Secondly, after Kirk’s remarks about wanting to play for “an organization committed to winning football”, I’m hoping to see his Vikings out of the playoffs this season.The best chance of that happening is for other NFC North teams to stack up some wins.I’ll be cheering on the Bears this week. Prediction: Bears win 31-6Redskins fans should back the Chargers against the Seahawks —I don’t have any problem rooting for the Bolts, and even less problem rooting against the Seahawks.The problem is that I don’t really believe that LAC can go into Seattle and get the win.I’ll be waving my powder-blue pom poms during this late afternoon contest, but I sense that I’ll be disappointed.Prediction: Seahawks win 23-20Redskins fans should NORMALLY back the AFC Patriots at home versus the NFC Packers —Once again, following my own advice is difficult on several levels.First is my deep and abiding hatred of all things Patriots.Second is that I am still focused on keeping the Vikings out of the playoffs, so I want to see their NFC North rivals do enough that either the Bears, Lions or Packers can take the division crown.Personally, I think it’ll be the Bears, but I may need to rely on the Packers and Aaron Rodgers to get the job done.Normally, the fact that the Redskins have a tie-breaker over the Packers would add more rational reasoning to hoping the Packers win the division, but as long as the Packers have that tie in their W-L record and the Redskins don’t, playoff tiebreakers are not a consideration.I like Aaron Rodgers, I like the Packers, and I’ll be cheering for them to upset the Patriots in Foxboro, though I know how unlikely that is to come to pass. Prediction: Patriots win 37 - 27Redskins fans must absolutely cheer for the Titans to defeat the Cowboys on Monday Night Football —I have no misgivings here.I’ll be a Tennessee fan on Monday night Youth Zach Brown Jersey , and I assume they have a decent chance to go into Jerruh’s world and get the win, despite the Cowboys being undefeated at home this season.Prediction: Cowboys win 23-19AFC vs AFCThe second rule is that we don’t much care about games that feature two AFC teams playing against each other.Chiefs at Browns -Prediction: Chiefs win 57-12Jets at the Dolphins - Two AFC East teams, both on 2 game losing streaks.I see this as almost a pick’em, but the Dolphins are at home and probably aren’t starting a rooking QB.Prediction: Dolphins win 17-10Steelers at Ravens - Initially I had the Ravens winning this game, but Week 8 results changed my mind.Prediction: Steelers win 25-16Texans at Broncos - Back in preseason,I thought this might be a playoff preview, but now Houston and Denver look like teams traveling in opposite directions.Prediciton: Texans win 24-16NFC vs NFCThis is where the rubber meets the road.Buccaneers at Panthers - This is a tough call, as it is an NFC South division game, and the Redskins haven’t played Tampa Bay yet, so I’m not sure about tiebreaker scenarios with them.Here’s where my head is at... We know the Redskins lost to the Saints but beat the Panthers, so we have the tie breaker over the Carolina, but lose out to New Orleans.If you think the Redskins finish as division champs, you want the Panthers to win the NFC South over the Saints.On the other hand, if you think the Redskins chance to qualify for a playoff spot will be as a wildcard team, then you want the Saints to win the division over the Panthers.I think the Skins will go on to win the NFC East, so I want to see the Panthers end up as the NFC South champs.I’m cheering for Carolina this weekend.I predict the Bucs will start Fitzmagic and light up the scoreboard.Cam Newton and his guys won’t be able to keep up.Prediction: Tampa Bay wins 31-21Lions at Vikings - Typically, I’d root for the team with a lower win percentage to beat its NFC division opponent, so — in this case — I should be rooting for the Lions, and I will be.Unfortunately, after losing to the Saints in the dome this past Sunday, the Vikings will be fired up to play well against their division rival. Prediction: Vikings win 34-23Rams at the Saints - My concern here is for Redskins playoff seeding.The chances are pretty slim that the Redskins will finish with an outright better W-L record than the Rams.It’s also unlikely that the ‘Skins would win tie breakers against the Rams.In keeping with the goal of seeing the Panthers win the NFC South, I will be rooting for Sean McVay’s team to put a loss on the Saints, and I think they have the firepower to do it.Prediction: Rams win 37-31BYE WeekThere are six teams on a bye in Week 9:Cardinals, Bengals Authentic Josh Doctson Jersey , Colts, Jaguars, Giants and Eagles.At the end of Week 9, every team in the NFC East will have had its bye week, eliminating the half-game difference in the standings (unless another tie game pops up in the NFC East).If all my predictions come true, this is what the NFC rankings would look like at the end of Week 9: If you think you've seen this article before, you probably have. I thought a lot of people may have skipped it because of the title, so I changed it and re-published it. The content hasn't changed.Jay Gruden talking about this week’s offensive line:“Chase will be the center for sure. Bergstrom will probably have to start out at guard, I would think. Then, left guard we’re still deciding right there. It looks like Cooper could have the nod.I think the big thing is, we’re waiting to see where Morgan’s at [as far as his injury]. With Morgan and Ty, hopefully they’ll be the tackles. But if Morgan can’t go then we probably have to put [Geron] Christian in at tackle and move some people around. So, we’ll wait and see.”“We’re hoping the experience that Jonathan [Cooper] has will help and Bergstom’s played a lot – obviously Chase – and hopefully we get Morgan [Moses] and Ty [Nsekhe] back. So that’s still pretty solid if you ask me. When you’re out there on the field, you’ll get a better gauge of how they’re doing. How we’re protecting. How we’re run blocking. How they’re handling the heat and the drives and the communication. Time will tell. I’m anxious to see it.”Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images“They look good in practice. They’ve done a great job – hats off to the coaches – Coach Callahan and Phil [Assistant Offensive Line Coach Phil Rauscher] obviously for getting them ready to go. But we’ll see.”“I think playing in 83 degree heat for the first time could take its toll on them, but we’ll have some other guys available if it is an issue. We have to wait and see, but I’m optimistic that they’ve picked it up mentally. That’s half the battle. Now physically on a 7-, 8-, 10-play drive, we’ll see where they’re at.”“It’s all hard. You’re hoping that experience will take over and the knowledge that they gained in the last four or five days will carry over to game day and they can handle – just the mental part of it is one thing.”“Now the physical part you’re handling with stunts and the movement of the defensive lines and the different fronts that they give you. Is it a jam front? It’s over, it’s under; there’s a lot of different things that take place with the line calls. We have a fairly smart group I believe, so I think they’ll handle it. But going out and executing the double teams and getting up to the next level and the stunts, we’ll see how they do. We have confidence they’ll do fine.”
