Five weeks into the NFL season and there are just two undefeated teams left standing and one head coach has already been fired. Defending Super Bowl champion New England is leading the way once again at 5-0 with surprising San Francisco (4-0) the only undefeated team left in the NFC. Meanwhile, winless Washington will be moving forward without head coach Jay Gruden, who was dismissed on Monday.
The good news for disheartened Redskins and Dolphins fans is that these two teams play each other on Sunday, so someone is getting their first W of the season (unless there's a tie). Week 6 gets started with the Patriots hosting the New York Giants for "Thursday Night Football." With all of the injuries the G-Men are dealing with and Daniel Jones making his first prime-time start in Gillette Stadium, 6-0 seems a safe bet for Tom Brady and company.
On Sunday, Carolina and Tampa Bay get things started early in London with a 9:30 a.m. ET kickoff. Kyle Allen will look to improve to 4-0 in relief of Cam Newton as the Panthers haven't lost since Week 2 to the, you guessed it, Buccaneers. The 1 p.m. ET window has Philadelphia in Minnesota for a key NFC battle while red-hot Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans are in Kansas City to face a Chiefs team looking to rebound from last Sunday's surprising loss to the Colts.
The late-afternoon slate of games is highlighted by the battle for first in the NFC West between the aforementioned 49ers and defending division champion Los Angeles Rams. Sam Darnold is set to return for the Jets, who look to turn things around against a Dallas Cowboys team that has lost two in a row.
Sunday's action concludes with Pittsburgh out on West Coast to face the Los Angeles Chargers in prime time while Week 6 wraps up with an important NFC North matchup as Detroit and Green Bay go head-to-head on "Monday Night Football."
