The 2013 NFL campaign hasn't gone according to plan for a variety of teams, but Week 6 presents a number of them with golden opportunities to turn things around before the halfway points of the season.

On Sunday, there will be a handful of tilts that are legitimate make-or-break games for many clubs across the league, so you won't want to miss any of the action. 

Heading into what should a very exciting 48 hours for NFL fans, here's a look at where and when to catch all of this weekend's all-important clashes.

Green Bay at Baltimore

For both of these teams, this will be a critical game, as Green Bay and Baltimore have each struggled at times during the first five weeks of the season. 

Last week, the Baltimore Ravens pulled off an impressive victory over a surprisingly good Miami Dolphins squad, and they'll look to follow that up with another one over the always dangerous Aaron Rodgers-lead Green Bay Packers.

But in order to do so, the Ravens will have to be much better at defending the pass, because as we saw against the Washington Redskins, Rodgers, Jordy Nelson and James Jones will take advantage of even the smallest defensive lapses. 

It'll be an interesting one in Baltimore, but unless the Ravens look better, offensively, than they have, thus far, the reigning Super Bowl champs will fall to 3-3. 

New Orleans at New England

Coming off, arguably, the most disappointing loss of Tom Brady's tenure in New England, the New England Patriots will be motivated to bounce back against the undefeated New Orleans Saints on home turf. 

At the other end of the field, Drew Brees, Jimmy Graham and the Saints have looked unstoppable, thus far, and really haven't been challenged during any of their last three victories. 

But if Rob Gronkowski's back in the fold for the Patriots, don't count Brady's bunch out, because if we've learned anything about the three-time Super Bowl champion, it's that he's more than capable of single-handedly taking his team to victory, especially if his favorite target's on the field. 

This will be a battle between two of the generation's best quarterbacks, so you won't want to miss any of the action at Gillette Stadium 

Washington at Dallas

Any time these NFC East rivals get together, it's worth watching, because these two teams absolutely hate one another, and given that none of the division's four teams are above .500 heading into Week 6, both squads are still very much in contention.

Last season, Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris gutted out a Week 17 victory at FedEx Field over the Dallas Cowboys to take the division, so Tony Romo will be looking to exact revenge on the Redskins at home. 

Both teams rank among the league's worst as far as pass defense is concerned, so expect RG3 and Romo to duke it out all evening long in Dallas.
