The National Football League is one of the most exciting sports on the planet because every game matters every week. Even one loss could potentially derail a season as teams are always fighting for a spot in the playoffs. All it takes is one team to make the playoffs on a winning streak and they could emerge from the fray as Super Bowl champions.
This week the important matchups kick off early as the Houston Texans host the banged up Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night football. Both teams are in dire need of a win if they hope to start a winning streak and eventually make a run to the playoffs.
Contestants that have signed up to attempt to win the World Series of Handicapping (WSOH) will be looking to find a winner this week and they may have their eye on some of the premiere matchups in the league.
Although the Seattle Seahawks have struggled to start the season, all eyes will be on this team this week as they hit the road to take on the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals have yet to lose this year and a win over the Seahawks at home would send a statement to the rest of the league.
Finally, the marquee matchup in the late games will feature Tom Brady and the New England Patriots as they go to Big D to take on the Dallas Cowboys. Unfortunately this matchup is a bit watered down as the injured Cowboys will be without star quarterback Tony Romo and all pro wide receiver Dez Bryant. This game will still garner plenty of attention as this game still surrounds two of the most popular teams in the league.
Week five is ready to kickoff and it should be another exciting week in the National Football League!
