We are officially a quarter of the way through the season which is nuts. Just a month ago there were foolish ESPN analysts predicting the New York Jets would make the playoffs and the team currently has *checks notes* zero (0) wins. Yikes.
Here are the 5 must-watch NFL week 5 games:
Atlanta Falcons (1-3) @ Houston Texans (2-2)
Any time you get an opportunity to watch two Top 10 QBs face off, it’s must-watch but there’s an added level of intrigue as both teams are massively underachieving at the quarter mark of the season.
The NFC South is begging for the Falcons to take over. Cam Newton and Drew Brees are sidelined with injuries and lord knows what happening in Tampa Bay.
Remember when the Flacons almost beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl a few years ago? Yea, neither do I. They stink and always have.
But the disappointment for Atlanta’s nonsense is even stronger considering that Houston lost to that Carolina Panthers team with Cam Newton flossing on the sidelines.
Whoever wins this game is right back in the playoff hunt and whoever loses should probably forfeit the remainder of the season. It’s a wrap.
Minnesota Vikings (2-2) @ New York Giants (2-2)
The Minnesota Vikings roster has FINALLY realized that Kirk Cousins has no idea how to play football, which is a problem for a professional football player. Adam Thielen has publicly called out his inability to throw the ball downfield and Stefon Diggs is just straight up boycotting the team as of right now.
Enter Daniel Jones, the best quarterback in the history of history. Minnesota’s locker room is hanging on by a thread. Imagine the chaos once a rookie has a better boxscore than Kirk Cousins. The Vikings are going to beat with socks filled with bars of soap in the showers after the game.
Chicago Bears (3-1) @ Oakland Raiders (2-2)
Khalil Mack BACK. The most dangerous man in the sport and the scariest pash rusher in the NFL is returning to face the Raiders. Mack wanted to spend the rest of his career in Oakland and Jon Gruden traded him away without a single interaction first between these two individuals.
For any Raiders fans who don’t believe that Derek Carr is the future of the franchise, you need not concern yourself any longer. Khalil Mack is about to rip Carr’s head off his shoulders.
Also, I just remembered that this game is being played in London for no reason. Dear every sports league: London doesn’t want to random see one American sporting event a year. You are not serving them at all. It is to solely so you can look at investors and say ‘look, we’re global’.
Not only is Oakland losing their football team to Las Vegas but they’re getting a home game taken away from them for London. Ok.
Green Bay Packers (3-1) @ Dallas Cowboys (3-1)
Both of these teams came soaring into Week 4 on pink clouds undefeated looking down at the rest of the NFL. Both teams looked as if they hadn’t practiced all week as the Packers allowed the Eagles to do whatever they wanted to offensively while the Cowboys offense never left the locker room allowing backup Teddy Bridgewater to look better than brief MVP candidate, Dak Prescott.
This matchup could be a potential NFC Championship preview. To give an idea of how close of a game this could end up being, I checked a few sites to bet on NFL games and found that the majority of sites have listed the Cowboys as 3.5-point favorites against the Packers. You might be able to find a site that offers slightly different odds but so far, I haven’t seen one that lists Packers as the favorites. Odds may still change in the next few but probably not by much.
Cleveland Browns (2-2) @ San Francisco 49ers (3-0)
Are there any two quarterbacks with more fans and believers without having actually done anything of any significance than Baker Mayfield and Jimmy Garappolo?
I mean, one of these two QBs have to be as good as they say, right? This game is must-watch simply as a petri dish to examine these young specimen live on Monday night football.
