Want to test your football prognostication skills against the experts of This Week in Football? This season, you have the chance!

Each week, we will post the TWIF panel’s picks for every game on the NFL slate here on YESNetwork.com, so you can see how your thoughts compare to those of Ryan Ruocco, Howard Cross, Ross Tucker, and Gary Myers. In addition, we’ll also be keeping a tally of how Ryan and the gang do all season, so come January you’ll see who has bragging rights as the big winner among the panel.

You can keep track of your record and see if you end up beating the experts...and of course, don't forget to watch This Week in Football every Tuesday during the NFL season on YES!

If the race for the “Pick ‘Em Champ” comes down to a game or two, then Week 5 will likely be known as the week where it came together. The TWIF panel went 7-1 on their unanimous games, but differing opinions on the Texas/Jets Monday night showdown kept all four from breaking double digits in correct answers this week – and it was Howard Cross whose individuality truly did cost him, as he managed just a 9-5 record.

Ross Tucker, on the other hand, scored the weekly win, going 12-2 with only the Packers and Bengals keeping him from a perfect score. Overall, the season standings are almost a complete stalemate, with one game separating first from last; Ryan Ruocco’s big week catapulted him into a tie at the top with Gary Myers, while Howard’s fall and Ross’ rise have them tied just a game behind the leaders.

For Week 6, the guys are once again unanimous on eight games and split down the middle on three others. In terms of the 3-1 dissensions, Gary has two of the three, as he is the only one to choose Washington and Seattle.

Let’s see who the gang has gone with this week, but first, a look at the latest standings…

WEEK 5 RECORD:
Ross Tucker: 12-2 (.857)
Ryan Ruocco: 11-3 (.786)
Gary Myers: 10-4 (.714)
