CLEVELAND – Week 5 delivered a slew of close games for NFL fans to salivate over as three contests went into overtime. Six teams are still without a loss this season – New England, Green Bay, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Denver and the Carolina Panthers. Out of all the undefeated teams, it seems that Denver and Carolina might possibly be the most fragile of the elite bunch, but that group count could change this week as Denver visits a hostile environment in Cleveland, coming off McCown’s franchise setting performance, and the Bengals visit Ralph Wilson Stadium this Sunday.
Some other key match-ups for Week 6:
New England vs. Indianapolis – 8:30 p.m. Sunday Night Football
Carolina vs. Seattle – 4:05 p.m.
Arizona vs. Pittsburgh – 1:00 p.m.

1. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (1)
Tom Brady and the Pats didn’t skip a beat after their truant Week 4 hiatus, demolishing the Cowboys in the House that Jerry Built. Missing only on seven passes, Brady finished with 20 completions for 275 yards and 2 TDs. An AFC Championship rematch is in store for football fans this week as New England will look to march into Indy and return with a W. (Sorry, I’m over making Deflategate jokes.)
