NFL Schedule Week 5: Under-the-Radar Matchups You Don't Want to Miss
If anything is for sure, it's that this season of the NFL has been completely unpredictable. Many teams have had unexpected success and failures, and that will continue into Week 5.
Make sure you do not miss these key games this weekend.
Falcons vs. Redskins

Robert Griffin III has had a good start to his NFL career with the Redskins offense. However, his numbers do not compare to Ryan's.
Even though the Redskins are playing at home, it will not be easy for RG3 and the Redskins to score against the tough Falcons defense.
Make sure you tune in to this matchup on Fox at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.
Broncos vs. Patriots

It will be an interesting matchup to see how Tom Brady can play against the pressure of the Broncos defense. Last week, the Broncos did not allow the Raiders to score any touchdowns.
On the contrary, the Patriots allowed the Bills to score 28 points. If the Patriots defense does not pressure the Broncos, Peyton Manning and the rest of the offense will take full advantage.
This game will at home for the Patriots and will be on CBS at 4:25 p.m. ET.
Chargers vs. Saints

No team has shocked the NFL more this year than the New Orleans Saints. After another loss in Week 4, their record is now 0-4.
The Saints had an extremely close game last week against the Green Bay Packers. Unfortunately for the Saints, it came down to a missed field goal.
It's about time for the Saints to have a win, and they're playing at home, which may help. This game will be on NBC at 8:20 p.m. ET for Sunday Night Football.
Texans vs. Jets
Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes also injured his foot during the game. According to head coach Rex Ryan (per The Washington Post), it is doubtful that Holmes will play this week against the Houston Texans.
The Texans beat the Tennessee Titans in a 38-14 victory last week, making them 4-0. Arian Foster and Matt Schaub have continued to lead the Texans offense, and the Texans defense has been able to shut down every team it has come across.
Hopefully the Jets have been able to come up with a game plan in order to prepare for the Texas powerhouse.
This game will be on ESPN for Monday Night Football at 8:30 p.m. ET.
