Week 5 of the 2013-14 NFL season is now behind us and only 3 teams remain undefeated.
Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs may be the surprise team thus far this season. Andy Reid is in his first year as the head coach for the organization and is already one of the coaching greats in NFL history. Reid has gotten his team off to a hot start so far with key wins coming by way of beating the Dallas Cowboys and his former team the Philadelphia Eagles. The Chiefs have scored the 9th most points thus far this season and their defense is tied with the Carolina Panthers as the stingiest only allowing 58 points with just over a quarter of the season completed. Jamaal Charles has been a key contributor towards the offensive success in KC and is currently ranked as the 9th RB in total rushing yardage. The Chiefs play host in week 6 to the Oakland Raiders (2-3), and should be able to move up to 6-0.
New Orleans Saints
WHO DAT NATION is off to a very hot start. Offensively they are ranked 9th in scoring, 2nd in passing yards, and 4th in total yardage. Their passing attack is led by QB Drew Brees who is possibly one game away from hitting the 2,000 yards passing mark. Tight end Jimmy Graham currently ties for the most receptions (37) in the NFL and leads in total reception yds. What may be the greatest testament to the Saints success so far might be the reuniting of head coach Sean Payton. Payton was suspended last season due to the alleged bounty program that took place with the New Orleans organization. The Saints head to Gillette Stadium to visit a presumably eager New England Patriots (4-1), who suffered a loss at the hands of the Cincinnati Bengals (3-2) this past week.
The Denver Broncos are clearly the talk of the town as they should be. Peyton Manning and the Bronco offense have been having their way with opposing defenses. The Broncos lead the NFL in passing yards, yards per game, TD passes and have the fewest interceptions. Clearly defenses are going to have to pick their poison when attempting to game plan against Denver considering that the roster has a number of weapons. Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker are currently in the top 10 in receiving yards, and Wes Welker leads the league in touchdown receptions. The Broncos have their foot on the gas and seemingly don’t plan on taking it off. This week, they’ll play host to the Jacksonville Jaguars who are off to an 0-5 start.
