Green Bay Packers (2-2) at Baltimore Ravens (3-2)
Date: Sunday, Oct. 13
Time: 1 p.m. ET
Two of the past three Super Bowl champions will be playing each other this week, but neither team has gotten off to the start that it was hoping for.
The Green Bay Packers lost a tough one in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals after fumbling the ball on fourth down at the end of the game, with the Bengals taking the fumble for a touchdown.
The bye week seemed to do this team a lot of good, as it grabbed a 22-9 win over the Detroit Lions. It wasn't all good, however, as Clay Matthews broke his thumb in the win. According to Adam Schefter, Matthews is expected to miss a month.

The offense has been strong as always, with Aaron Rodgers having another strong season. Through four games, he's thrown for 1,331 yards, nine touchdowns and three interceptions.
Along with a strong passing game, the Packers have also been very productive on the ground for the first time in quite a while. They're currently fifth in the NFL, averaging 141 rushing yards per game thanks to big games from James Starks, Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin this year.
The Baltimore Ravens haven't had the kind of the season they would like. Their offense has struggled to be efficient, with Joe Flacco, Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce all struggling so far. According to Pro Football Focus (subscription required), the Ravens have a minus-62.6 grade on offense, the second-worst mark behind the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Despite having one of the best backfields in the NFL, the ground game is bad right now for Baltimore. The Ravens are averaging just 77.8 yards per game and 2.8 yards per carry.
On defense, this team is starting to turn things around after getting torched by the Denver Broncos in Week 1. The defense rank 16th against the pass and sixth against the run. Elvis Dumervil and Terrell Suggs have been playing great this season, combining for 10 sacks and 49 tackles.
Both of these teams are looking for big wins this week in order to stay near the top of their respective divisions. Expect an exciting game between two playoff-caliber teams that will feature plenty of star players.
New Orleans Saints (5-0) at New England Patriots (4-1)
Date: Sunday, Oct. 13
Time: 4:25 p.m. ET
Another exciting game on FOX, two of the NFL's top teams will be going at it in the must-watch late afternoon game.
The Saints are currently undefeated and looking like one of the best teams in the NFC. With how bad the rest of the NFC South has been so far, they already have a four-game lead in their division.
The offense has been terrific as always. Drew Brees is lighting it up once again, throwing for 1,722 yards and 12 touchdowns with four interceptions. Jimmy Graham has been the go-to guy in the passing game, with 37 receptions for 593 yards and six touchdowns.
The big story this year for the Saints has been the much-improved defense, which has been fixed in large part due to the hiring of Rob Ryan. After being the worst defense in the league last season, the defense is allowing just around 330 yards of offense per game. It has also held every single opponent to under 20 points through the first five weeks.
For the Patriots, they finally lost their first game of the season against the Bengals. The conditions were awful, as it was pouring down rain, and the teams combined for just 19 total points.
To make matters worse, Tom Brady's 52-game streak with a passing touchdown was finally broken. The good news was that Danny Amendola was finally able to return. According to Field Yates from ESPN, the offense might also be finally getting Rob Gronkoswki back this week, as the team is optimistic that he will be able to play.
The defense lost arguably its best player a couple of weeks ago in Vince Wilfork, and that's going to hurt this team a lot. He was key to stopping the run, and his absence in the middle of that defense will likely open up more rushing lanes.
The Saints are going to be the favorites in this one, but things will get a whole lot more interesting if Gronk finally comes back. Expect a lot of big plays on offense from both teams, but for the Saints to stay undefeated.
