Week 5 of the NFL season has some interesting matches lined up for the fans. High flying Kansas City Chiefs, undefeated in the first quarter of the season, will take on surprise package Tennessee Titans. Andy Ried's team will be looking to continue their perfect start to the season. The Titans suffered a big blow with a hip injury ruling out quarterback Jake Locker. In his absence, Kansas City will go in to the match as favorites.
Expect no surprises as the pace-setters Denver Broncos take on the Dallas Cowboys. Undefeated Broncos average 45 points per game this season and expect the pattern to continue as the lacklustre Cowboys will need a miracle to stop them.
In another highly anticipated matchup, Seattle Seahawks will take on Indianapolis Colts. Seattle Seahawks are yet to taste defeat in what was a perfect opening quarter of the season for them. Indianapolis had a good start and is 3-1 in the first quarter. The match also sees the much anticipated clash between quarterbacks Russel Wilson and Andrew Luck. Being a home game, Colts will start as slight favorites. However, experts are of the opinion that the match is too tight for predictions.
With the first quarter of the season over, the games on Week 5 will help shape the league structure as we start the second quarter. With five teams undefeated in the first quarter and four teams yet to open their account, expect some surprises this week.
