NFL Week 5 picks, predictions:

The Arizona Republic: Jets 27, Dolphins 24

Jeremy Cluff writes: "Zach Wilson returned from injury to lead the Jets to a Week 4 win. Can he lead them to another win in Week 5? Yes, he can." Take the Dolphins to cover vs. Jets

Bill Speros writes: "The Dolphins are a solid team with serious expectations to reach the playoffs. But they now have a question mark at QB. The status of Tua Tagovailoa is as uncertain as the track of the next hurricane to hit Florida. Teddy Bridgewater is Miami's starting QB for now. He has the best winning percentage ATS of any current NFL quarterback with more than 10 starts. The Jets last won a Super Bowl before man walked on the moon. But they did win at Pittsburgh Sunday."

Will Zach Wilson and the New York Jets beat the Miami Dolphins in their NFL Week 5 game?

ESPN: Dolphins have a 56.3% win probability

Draft Kings: Go with the Dolphins to cover vs. Jets

It writes: "In Tagovailoa’s absence, the veteran backup Teddy Bridgewater performed well, completing 14-of-23 pass attempts for 193 yards and a touchdown with one interception. The quarterback change may limit the Dolphins’ offensive potential to an extent, but Mike McDaniels is a crafty play-caller and Bridgewater looked more than comfortable under center. Miami still boasts the overall talent advantage on both sides of the ball and should still cover in this Week 5 bout."

Fan Duel: Dolphins will cover vs. Jets in Week 5

Larry Rupp writes: "It's important to note just how dominant the Dolphins have been against the Jets in the past. Miami is 8-1 overall and 7-1 against the spread (ATS) over its last nine games against New York. Keep in mind each of Miami's two victories in this divisional matchup last season came by a touchdown as well. The Jets simply fail to live up to expectations when facing divisional foes. They are 1-7 ATS in their last eight games against an AFC East opponent. Wilson has shown some flashes of greatness, but he is still a developmental prospect that is facing a veteran defense on Sunday. The Dolphins roll here."
