The NFL world seems headed for some great story lines as Arizona and Minnesota are leading their respective divisions and New OrlÃ©ans has yet to win a game through four weeks. Here is a closer look at the week 5 schedule and a preview of the week’s top games.
The Cardinals take their 4-0 record on the road this week and face the young St Louis Rams in prime-time. The two NFC West teams are set to face each other on Thursday night in a game that could make or break the year for the Rams and could keep the Cardinals in the national spotlight with another win.
Atlanta is another team that has yet to lose in 2012 and this week they face Washington and their rookie quarterback Robert Griffin. The Redskins are 2-2 on the year and need a win to keep pace in the NFC East. The Falcons could use the win to keep on track for home field advantage in the NFC Playoffs and keep their perfect mark intact.
The Houston Texans are the only team with a 4-0 mark in the AFC and this week they take their show on the road and face the NY Jets. New York is 2-2, but have several questions surrounding the struggling offense and a win can keep the team in the hunt for the NFL Playoffs, but even with a home game, beating the Texans will be a tough task.
