Finding big matchups from each week of the NFL season can be difficult at times. In Week 5, it's easy to find big matchups, but the problem is deciding which ones are the biggest of the bunch.

Can Eddie Lacy return to keep the Detroit Lions defensive line away from Aaron Rodgers, or should the focus be more on the interior of the Cincinnati Bengals defensive line against the New England Patriots offensive line?

Does Victor Cruz pull the New York Giants to their first victory, or does Dontari Poe keep the Kansas City Chiefs unbeaten?

Every single game this week has a viable matchup to pay attention to. Even the St. Louis Rams clash with the Jacksonville Jaguars features one of the most talented young receivers in the league facing off against one of the most talented young cornerbacks.
