Here’s what you need to know about Week 5 in the NFL:
GAME OF THE WEEK: This one is a no-brainer. Whatever you are doing on Sunday at 4:30pm, you should really stop to watch some of the Broncos/Patriots game. Peyton Manning and Tom Brady are two of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game. Neither is getting any younger and no one can know how much longer they’ll be in the league, so opportunities to see them face off like this should be treasured.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Drew Brees is only one touchdown away from breaking Johnny Unitas’ for consecutive games with a touchdown pass (47). It’s likely that he’ll break it on Sunday in their game against the Chargers in New Orleans. The interesting part of this story is that suspended personnel Sean Payton, Joe Vitt, and Mickey Loomis are being granted permission to attend the game to see Brees go for the record breaking score. It should be an emotional game for all involved, and will hopefully result in the Saints first win of the season.
STORYLINE TO KNOW: Indianapolis will be playing their first game without head coach Chuck Pagano, who is undergoing treatment for leukemia. The Colts have had an emotional week and will have a tall order facing Green Bay, but they’re playing at home and should be considered an upset threat.
