Coming into week five 4-0, will the New England Patriots be able to stay undefeated after facing the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday?

Glenn Ordway, Fred Smerlas, and Steve DeOssie made their weekly picks on New England Tailgate, but not all of them picked the Patriots to come out on top this week.

“I think Gronk comes out of the shadows this week,” said Smerlas, who is picking the Patriots to win. “The Patriots are getting on track with their offense and that offense for Cincinnati is not going to be able to keep up with them.”

Ordway was the only member of the New England Tailgate crew to pick against the Patriots.

“I think Cincinnati is going to pull this one out,” Ordway said. “This is what [Cincinnati] does, they have one of these brain farts and then they come back and they play great.”

In their other picks, DeOssie and Ordway picked the Miami Dolphins to beat the Baltimore Ravens and for the Denver Broncos to roll over the Dallas Cowboys, while Smerlas picked Dallas to upset Denver.
