Here’s a look at the top three games for Sunday during the 2012 NFL season Week 5.
In the battle of Pennsylvania, it should be interesting to see whether or not Michael Vick‘s turnover problems continue against a Steelers’ defense coming off the bye and anxious to bounce back after a disappointing Week 3 loss to the Oakland Raiders. The Eagles became the first team in NFL history to win their first three games by two points or less, but they’ll need all the points they can get if they have any chance of escaping Week 5 with a win.
Why is this one of the top games of the week if the Saints are 0-4? The answer to that is simple–Drew Brees.
Brees tied Johnny Unitas last weekend by throwing at least one touchdown in 47-straight games and what better way to earn the all-time record than going against your former team? The Chargers are off to a hot 3-1 start and the Saints are anxious for their first win–so this makes a great matchup to watch in Week 5.
Ah, yes–the famous battle between Peyton Manning and Tom Brady with a twist. It was always fun to watch these two future Hall of Famers when the Patriots and Indianapolis Colts played and Sunday’s game should be just as exciting for fans to watch. After back-to-back losses, the Broncos looked impressive all around in Week 4–so it should be interesting to see if they can keep that momentum going against Brady and company.
