Hallo all, time for some more football fun. This one will be a bit refined because I'm at work. LET'S GO.
So week 5 kicked off with St. Louis toppling Arizona at home, leaving only 2 perfect teams (Houston, Atlanta) left in the frame.
6pm, Sky Sports
Philadelphia Eagles (3-1) @ Pittsburgh Steelers (1-2)
Should be a fun one, two big teams whom are heavy on hard-hitting defence and with title aspirations square off. Pittsburgh have has a disappointing start but are coming off a bye, Philly seemed to have fluked their way to 3 and 1 with some decent and terrible play mixed in at equal measures. That won't matter today.

9:25pm, Sky Sports
Denver Broncos (2-2) @ New England Patriots (2-2)
And lo, the rivalry between the two best Quarterbacks on the past decade takes on a new chapter. Denver started to look legit again next week, which they'll need to take on an always dangerous Patriots side. That and Peyton has always had a slight edge over Brady, though being in Foxboro certainly helps. Amazingly, these two teams both sit at .500 so this could be a wild one.

Channel 4, 1:20am
San Diego Chargers (3-1) @ New Orleans Saints (0-4)
A re-match of probably the best Wembley game so far, 4 years ago, sees the improving but still winless Saints against the, generally strong (but typically wobbling) Chargers. Expect this to be yet another high scoring affair between two excellent QBs. The Superdome is no longer the spirited fortress of a couple years ago, however, it is difficult to ever predict which San Diego will turn up. (Bolts by 3)
1:30 am, BBC Red Button
Houston Texans (4-0) @ New York Jets (2-2)
This could be a bloodbath. After the Jets groundsman are only just finished mopping up the massacring San Francisco handed to them at MetLife last week, here comes the AFC's version. The Texans look real strong, the Jets look anything but. Only worth watching for potential Tebow time.(Texans by 7+)
Atlanta (4-0) @ Washington (2-2) - It's hard to tell with the Skins right now, a lot of it seems to depend on Pierre Garcon. Alf Morris has been great though. Atlanta have been good so far but can be shaky away from home, so don't be surprised if this ends in upset. (Skins by 3)
Green Bay (2-2) @ Indianapolis (1-2) - This has been a strange season hasn't it? Pretty much all the big boys are faltering. The Colts have a nice solid base but their defence leaves a lot to be desired. Particularly against the Packers. (by 7)
Baltimore (3-1) @ Kansas (1-3) - I don't actually remember Kansas winning a game, can anyone confirm this? Anyway, I don't see this to be much of a problem. (Ravens by 7)
Miami (1-3) @ Cincinatti (3-1) - Miami should be relatively happy with their performance even if it hasn't ended in results. They've been unlucky in their last two losses. The Bengals look pretty playoff bound however. (by 4-5)
Cleveland (0-4) @ New York Giants (2-2) - The Giants can be inconsistent, but that's better than being consistently the Browns. (by 7)
Seattle (2-2) @ Carolina (1-3) - This could be fun. Here we have two young and explosive teams going at it, particularly at Quarterback. Super Cam has struggled a bit so far this season, at the Seahawks defence have been very impressive so far, so I can see them sneaking it (by 3)
Chicago (3-1) @ Jacksonville (1-3) - Like KC, I don't really remember Jax winning. Anyway, I'm sure that column won't change today when Whingy McWhinge and crew come into town today. (by 7)
Tennessee (1-3) @ Minnesota (3-1) - The Vikes are STILL top of the NFC North. Who'd a thunk it? Tennessee bottom of the AFC South however... mmmm. (Vikes by 4-5)
Buffalo (2-2) @ San Francisco (3-1) - After the minor blip SF suffered at the hands of Minnie, they returned with an absolute battering of the Bills' division rivals. Buffalo always put points on the board, the trouble is, it happens on both rows. (SF by 3)
And that's us. LET'S TALK FOOTBALL
