Rap Sheet Rankings: The Week 5 Edition

Patriots QB Tom Brady might throw a little bit this week (Associated Press)

In a strange statistical oddity (I guess all oddities are strange), there isn’t one matchup of two winning teams in this NFL week’s schedule. Through four weeks, that’s just the way it turned out.

But that doesn’t mean there aren’t good games. With some of the surprise teams (Cardinals, Vikings) facing interesting opponents, and with the mess of a Jets team playing on Monday Night Football against the undefeated Texans, there will be plenty to dissect.

But for me, as I rank the Top 14 games of the week, there is none better than Patriots-Broncos. Also known as, Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning. Yup, we’ve seen this play out 12 times before, always with the Patriots and Colts. Brady has won eight of the 12, by the way.

The 13th should be epic, with Manning bringing his hot new team into Brady’s backyard. That’s why, no question, this is the best game worth watching this week. What about the rest?
