NFL 2018 Schedule: Top 5 NFL games for Week 5

A look at which games on the schedule could be the biggest (and best) matchups.

1

Jaguars at Chiefs (-3)

Arguably, the game of the week, will see the Kansas City Chiefs with a major test. They'll host the 3-1 defensive-minded Jaguars at Arrowhead Stadium. Can Patrick Mahomes withstand the attacking Jags' defense? If he can, the Chiefs will be a perfect 5-0.

2

Dolphins at Bengals (-6)

Through their first three games, the Miami Dolphins were considered among the NFL elite and had a decent division lead over New England. Now, the Patriots have given them a first loss and are right back in the hunt. Meanwhile, Cincinnati is 1-0 at home, and coming off an exciting 37-36 win in Atlanta. Will they keep the momentum going, or will Miami bounce back from their 38-7 thrashing the Pats gave them?

3

Falcons at Steelers (-3.5)

These are two NFL teams that were pegged as playoff teams ahead of the 2018 season. Right now, they have a combined record of just 2-5-1 overall. Neither team would be in the postseason, but a win here for either Big Ben's Steelers or Matt Ryan's Falcons could shift momentum.

4

Vikings at Eagles (-3)

The reigning Super Bowl champs have been disappointing over their first four games, going 2-2. That's not terrible, though, and a 2-0 home record bodes well for them here. Meanwhile, Kirk Cousins and the Vikings have a lot of soul-searching to do if they want to come close to replicating last year's success or go beyond it.

5

Cowboys at Texans (-3.5)

Neither team has looked dominant, necessarily, but this will be a battle of in-state rivals with pride on the line. For the Cowboys, they seem to have started to turn the corner a bit, after a disappointing start. For the Texans, they need to turn the corner or soon the playoffs will be a distant wish.
