With the 2020 NFL season now entering Week 5, we’re continuing our new weekly bit where some of the staff here at Canal Street Chronicles tries to pick winners and losers for every NFL game each week.

In Week 4, there were plenty of upsets and surprises across the league, but at least one thing is consistent: the Atlanta Falcons continue to underwhelm in 2020. No one expected the Falcons to get their first win of the season last week against the Green Bay Packers, but this time, at least a couple of the CSC staff think the Falcons might beat Teddy Bridgewater’s Carolina Panthers to get Atlanta’s first win of the season.

One game the staff wasn’t split on was the New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football. There’s a clean sweep of a prediction for the Saints to beat the Chargers and improve to 3-2. That’s surely not a jinx, right?

Here are our live-updating picks:
