CLEVELAND, Sporting Alert – NFL Week 5 schedule continues on Sunday with another loaded program, with all games streaming live on the NFL Network.
A total of 12 games are on the schedule for today with the Sunday Night Football game pitting the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers together, live NBC at 8:30pm ET.
Before that, though, there are seven games kicking off at 1:00pm, including the clash between New England Patriots and the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium in Ohio.
This clash will be interesting, not because of the matchup, but for the fact that star quarterback Tom Brady will make his season debut, as he is activated again by New England, with the ‘Deflategate’ coming to an end with the four-game suspension.
The Patriots, who are looking to bounce back from last week’s 16-0 shut out defeat at home against the Buffalo Bills, are given a 76 percent chance of winning against the Browns, according to ESPN’s Football Power Index.
Brady’s connection with Rob Gronkowski, who is healthier this week, will also be vital in going forward.
Meanwhile, coming off their bye week last week, the Philadelphia Eagles, one of only three undefeated teams left in the NFL this year, go in search of their fourth successive victory this season against the Detriot Lions.
Rookie quarterback Carson Wentz is off to a flying start with the Eagles, passing for five touchdowns from three games so far this season for 769 yards.
Philadelphia has a 66 percent chance of winning Sunday’s game, according to ESPN’s Football Power Index.
Also on Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings and the Denver Broncos, the other two undefeated clubs left this season, will also be in action.
The Vikings (4-0) play hosts to the Houston Texans at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, while the Broncos, who have announced that Paxton Lynch will be handed his first NFL start, are up against the Atlanta Falcons at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
Atlanta (3-1) has won three in succession since losing its opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Elsewhere on the NFL Week 5 schedule, the Dallas Cowboys (3-1), who have won three in a row, will host the Cincinnati Bengals, while the Washington Redskins are against the Baltimore Ravens.
Monday Night Football sees the struggling Carolina Panthers, without leader Cam Newton taking on the Buccaneers, who have dropped their last three games.
Teams on a bye in NFL Week 5 are the Kansas City Chiefs, the New Orleans Saints, Seattle Seahawks and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
