A bunch of games in Week 5 of the 2018 NFL season are intriguing, but for very different reasons. A few feature two teams that have played surprisingly poorly to start the year, almost putting them in a “must-win” situation if they want any chance of making the playoffs. There are a couple of matchups between arguably two of the best teams in each conference. Important divisional games are also on Sunday’s slate.

Here’s a look at the five best games on the Week 5 schedule:

Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns

With Baker Mayfield under center, the Browns have played two of the year’s most exciting games. Now, it’s time to see what the No.1 overall pick can do against the defense that’s given up the fewest yards per play. Cleveland has been in every game, never losing by more than a field goal. Baltimore is coming off an enormous win in Pittsburgh, and a victory in Cleveland would give the Ravens another important divisional win.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Kansas City Chiefs

If you believe the New England Patriots aren’t as good as they were a season ago, this might be a matchup of the AFC’s two best teams. Jacksonville has given up the fewest points and Kansas City leads the NFL in points scored. Will Patrick Mahomes’ string of unbelievable games continue? The early-season MVP faces his toughest test yet, by far. If the Jaguars can’t stop Mahomes, there’s even more reason to believe the quarterback is going to finish 2018 with a truly historic season.

Atlanta Falcons at Pittsburgh Steelers

This game makes list the for two reasons. First, there are going to be a ton of points scored. Atlanta and Pittsburgh can score with just about anybody, and their defenses have been atrocious over the last three weeks. Then there’s the fact that both teams desperately need a win. The Falcons aren’t going to win the NFC South if they start the season 1-4, and the Steelers will be in a deep hole in the AFC North at 1-3-1.

Minnesota Vikings at Philadelphia Eagles

It’s a rematch of last season’s NFC Championship Game, though Carson Wentz will be under center for Philadelphia instead of Nick Foles. Neither team has looked like a Super Bowl contender through the first quarter of the season. The Vikings have struggled on defense after giving up fewer yards than anyone in 2017, and only five teams have scored fewer points than the Eagles this year. With neither team sitting above .500, let’s see how they respond in Week 5.

Washington Redskins at New Orleans Saints

The Saints were expected to be one of the NFC’s best teams, and they’ve been just that with a 3-1 start. This is the Redskins’ chance to prove that they are one of the most dangerous teams in the conference. Washington is the only NFC East team with a record above .500. They’ve already beaten the Green Bay Packers and now will play in a stadium where New Orleans has played a few competitive games. The “Monday Night Football” matchup features the week’s second-highest over/under, according to OddsShark.
