A quarter of the 2013 NFL season is in the books, but it's hardly time for rest and relaxation with Week 5 bringing football fans everywhere plenty to sink their teeth into.
Who is this year's most surprising team so far?
The Browns are the only surprising team with a chance to do more damage on Sunday.
Across the board, teams that had early draft picks in April have shown resistance to the idea that rebuilding is a multi-year process. Several have big games against expected playoff contenders this week.
We'll pass along predictions for the entire Week 5 slate below and offer you some additional analysis for games including surprising NFL squads.

Predictions for Surprising Teams
Baltimore 23, Miami 21
Baltimore has struggled on offense through four games. The running game has been nonexistent, and Joe Flacco hasn't been his usual clutch self in the fourth quarter to bail the Ravens out of jams. A 2-2 start has been the result.
Miami is a surprising 3-1 but stumbled against New Orleans on Monday Night Football, giving up 413 passing yards to Drew Brees in a lopsided 38-17 defeat.
In a back-and-forth, heated affair, we finally see the defending Super Bowl champs display the poise and late-game execution that won them the Lombardi trophy last season. Both teams will be 3-2 come Monday morning.

Green Bay 34, Detroit 23
Who will win the NFC North?
Detroit has been a surprise in 2013. I'm not sure many thought the addition of Reggie Bush would reinvigorate the offense to the tune of 404.8 yards per game.
Jim Schwartz's men are also playing well on defense and have momentum after beating Chicago last week, but Green Bay is a desperate team and will play like it on both sides of the ball.
Kansas City 20, Tennessee 12
The key to this one will likely be on the ground, where Kansas City gives up a friendlier 117.5 yards per game to opponents. Titans running back Chris Johnson—as you can see in this tweet from The Tennessean's Jim Wyatt—expects to carry the load on offense:
While Johnson is averaging just 3.3 yards per carry, only New Orleans (5.5) allows a better per-rush average than Kansas City (5.4). Something has to give on that front, but I would expect Andy Reid and Bob Sutton to stack the box and make Fitzpatrick beat them.
Chris Johnson said he's already on same page with Ryan Fitzpatrick: "All he has to do is hand me the ball." pic.twitter.com/cjCpEX4qLI— Jim Wyatt (@jwyattsports) October 3, 2013
That situation favors the Chiefs.
Behind another turnover-free day from Alex Smith and a balanced offensive attack, I like the Chiefs to start the season 5-0.
