DALLAS, Sporting Alert – Week 5 in the 2015 NFL season continues on Sunday with five of the six unbeaten teams this term looking to extend their 100-percent records.
Currently still undefeated on the season are the Cincinnati Bengals, Green Bay Packers, Atlanta Falcons, Denver Broncos and New England Patriots.
Carolina Panthers, the other team yet to taste a defeat this season, are one of four teams on a bye in Week 4.
After being inactive in Week 5, Tom Brady and the Patriots (3-0) return to work with the hope of picking up from where they left off before the break.
Brady and defending champions travel to Arlington, Texas, to battle with the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium.
The last time out, New England battered the Jacksonville Jaguars 51-17, with Brady throwing two touchdown passes on his way to becoming the fourth quarterback to pass for 400 TDs in NFL history. He also threw for 358 yards in that game.
The 38-year-old has so far thrown for 1,112 yards and nine touchdowns without any interceptions from three games and has an 83.1 QBR. Pretty impressive huh?
Tight end Rob Gronkowski has also been equally effective for the Patriots.
So far this season, his linkage with Brady has been superb and fantasy owners all over the globe are going crazy when Gronkowski is in their starting lineups.
Gronkowski, heading into Sunday’s Week 5 contest with the Cowboys, has taken 16 catches for 308 yards and has four touchdowns.
The Dallas Cowboys (2-2) will be trying to stop a two game losing streak.
Wide receivers Dez Bryant and Brice Butler are both out, so too is quarterback Tony Romo, who remains on the sidelines with a broken collarbone.
Meanwhile, after opening the season with a perfect 4-0 record, the ESPN Pick Center have the Atlanta Falcons 7-point favourites to see off the Washington Redskins (2-2) in Week 5.
ESPN is also reporting that wide receiver Julio Jones, who has tallied 478 yards receiving thus far, is expected to play against the Redskins, although he could be limited due to the hamstring problem that has been bothering him during the week.
So for the time being, Jones remains questionable until the inactive list is revealed.
Elsewhere in Week 5, the Denver Broncos (4-0) will take on the Oakland Raiders (2-2), Cincinnati Bengals (4-0) meet the Seattle Seahawks (2-2) and Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers (4-0) play hosts to the St. Louis Rams (2-2).
