The New England Patriots were one of the only teams to exit week 5 with a positive feeling. There were a lot of close games between teams that had no business being competitive. The Colts barely beat the Texans, the Broncos struggled against the Raiders, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers saw an end to their interception-less at home streak, and the Seahawks allowed the Bengals to score 17 fourth quarter points to force overtime and ultimately win the game.

Why is the rest of the league looking so bad on a weekly basis?

We cover the league as a whole, with a specific focus on the Ravens, break down how the Patriots managed to wear down the Cowboys, and then give our initial impressions of the Colts this year.
