Week 5: NFL’s Best Matchups

Four week in, six teams are undefeated, and coming into Week 5 they are looking to stay perfect. Every week brings a new story, last week we got to see a record breaking performance from Drew Brees, let’s see what’s in store for this week. Here’s the games that you should keep an eye on.

Cincinnati vs. Seattle

More like Andy Dalton versus the Legion of Boom, let’s face it Dalton has hit the ground running while the LOB is still playing catch up. The Cincinnati Bengals signal caller has looked better than ever and has been playing with chip on his shoulder after being booed at the All-Star game this summer. Dalton has already surpassed 1,000 yards passing this season with only one interception to his nine touchdowns. Do not count out the infamous Seattle defense though, with the return of Kam Chancellor they have a better chance of slowing down those deep routes that Cincinnati love so much. Both teams will have their work cut out for them on Sunday, which will make for a good game to watch.

Washington @ Atlanta

How does a game with the top ten scoring offense playing against a top ten defense sound? Good, right? Well this is what you are getting Sunday when Washington heads to Atlanta to take on the Falcons. Atlanta’s offense has been hitting opponents from all angles, the ground attack has been flourishing and the aerial assault from Matt Ryan and Julio Jones has not skipped a beat. The Washington Redskins are coming into this game with a bit of confidence after a comeback win last week, they will have to reconstruct their secondary to accommodate the loss of DeAngelo Hall. If Kirk Cousins manages to stay calm under the pressure that comes with Atlanta’s aggressive defense, these matchups will be lead to a surprisingly exciting game.

Pittsburgh vs. San Diego

Lately when watching these two teams, fans do not know what they can expect to see. One thing is for sure, Phillip Rivers is going to air the ball out. In his last game he passed for 358 yards and three touchdowns. On Monday he will be facing a tougher opponent in the Pittsburgh Steelers defense which has had 14 sacks in the last four games. The loss of Ben Roethlisberger has set the Steelers back after a strong start, but Michael Vick has shown he can still run the offense. The San Diego Charger defense has not been as strong as their offense, but they are starting to click and it is showing. In their last game they held on to defeat the Cleveland Browns. Both teams are starting to develop in those particular areas, as a result this will be a game that you can expect to be watching on the edge of your seat.
