Teams on bye: Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers
15 games will be played this week with three in primetime. The two teams with scheduled byes are the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers. Week 5 kicks off with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers taking on the Chicago Bears on Thursday Night Football. It’ll be a pair of 3-1 teams looking to emerge among the very best in the NFC in the early part of the season.
Sunday Night Football gives us two playoff teams from a season ago in the NFC in the Minnesota Vikings traveling across the country to the Pacific Northwest to take on the Seattle Seahawks. Minnesota won its first game of the season last week over the winless Houston Texans, while Seattle stayed perfect by getting past the Miami Dolphins down in South Florida.
The final game of the week will be Monday Night Football between the Los Angeles Chargers and the New Orleans Saints. Unless these two teams meet in Super Bowl 55, this will be the last time Drew Brees faces the the team who drafted him in the second round of the 2001 NFL Draft out of Purdue University. Will it be rookie Justin Herbert or veteran Tyrod Taylor getting the start?
Which games will you be watching this week, as the NFL enters the second quarter of the year?
