The NFL is back and here are the five games you don't want to miss in Week 5 of the 2022 season.
There's no way to sugarcoat it: The slate for Week 5 of the NFL season is a little rough overall.
Eight of the 14 matchups don't feature a winning team, and even the top games
don't carry as much weight as they have in weeks past.
But not every week can be full of huge stakes. And that leaves plenty of room for surprises with lowered expectations.
Plus, It's easy to see how several games that just fell short of this week's top five could have major playoff implications.
Colts-Broncos on "Thursday Night Football" isn't the battle for playoff seeding we once hoped,
and Jonathan Taylor and Javonte Williams are both hurt.
But both teams are on the precipice of the postseason if their campaigns take a turn,
starting on Sunday. And while it's unclear if the Falcons are legit after a 2-2 start against a weak schedule,
facing the Buccaneers is a great measuring stick.
The Week 5 slate may not be that strong, but let's take a look at the best of what it can offer.
