NFL TV Schedule Week 5: Breaking Down the Can't-Miss Matchups

With the completion of the Monday night clash between the Dallas Cowboys and the Chicago Bears, the NFL season will officially be four weeks old. 

That's a quarter of the 16-game season in the books. A lot can happen in that time.

From the entire debacle that was the replacement referee saga to the dazzling starts from some of the rookies and younger players in the league, this season is off to an exciting start.

While we've seen preseason favorites excel and traditional cellar-dwellers continue to dwell, we've also had our fair share of surprises.

For one, the Arizona Cardinals currently sit at 4-0. A large part of their success is due to backup quarterback Kevin Kolb and a defense that has played at a surprisingly elite level.

On the other hand, the New Orleans Saints have stumbled to a 0-4 start. Shocking when you consider that the Saints only lost three games all of last season. Brees has done his part; however, the defense currently ranks last in total defense while allowing 32.5 points per game.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

This season is finally getting into the swing of the things. This is the stretch of the schedule where we find out who the contenders are and who the pretenders are.

With that in mind, here are five can't-miss matchups to keep an eye out for in Week 5.
