There are no less than 3 NFL games in Week 5 pitting groups with at least a share of top place in their divisions versus each other. That consists of one of the never-too-early “possible” conference title game sneak peeks, the Jaguars at the unbeaten Chiefs.
Yet it’s the game between a number of underachievers that ought to get the most eyes today. They’re underachieving not just because they consulted with a Super Bowl berth on the line last January, however since they had every factor to think they ‘d both be back there next January. The Vikings, under.500, return to the scene of their NFC national championship loss, Philadelphia, where the Eagles haven’t totally regained the magic with Carson Wentz back.
The loser will have some early ground to make up. While it’s still early in the season, neither group needs to be digging out of a hole in October.
