The quantity of parity within the league is unbelievable, as 20 groups have both two or 3 wins through five video games, which might set the level for a wild playoff race come December. 

There are six groups 4-1 or better through five weeks and 3 of them are living within the NFC East. The department has simply six losses, and 3 are to one another.

The groups forward of Allen coming into Week 6? The Buffalo Bills, Philadelphia Eagles, Detroit Lions, (*10*)Cleveland Browns, Los Angeles Chargers, Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints

Kupp has 49 catches through five video games this season, on tempo for an NFL file 167 catches at the yr. What’s much more unbelievable about this feat? Through five video games, Kupp had as many receptions (49) as Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields had completions.

Fields now has 63 completions in six video games following Thursday evening’s loss to the Commanders. Kupp will want 14 catches in Week 6 to stay tempo with Fields, however it is unbelievable how productive the Los Angeles Rams large receiver has been and the way little the Bears in reality throw the ball. 

Colts have now not allowed any fourth quarter issues this season 

The Colts are the primary group because the 1995 Chargers not to permit some degree within the fourth quarter through the primary five video games in a season. That Chargers group ended up 9-7 and misplaced to the Colts — sarcastically — within the playoffs.

Andrew Luck had 11 landing passes to working backs and tight ends through five video games in 2014 and Peyton Manning had 11 in 2004 — the yr Manning set the then-NFL file for landing passes in a season with 49. 

Rams, Bengals Super Bowl hangovers

Both the Los Angeles Rams (2-3) and Cincinnati Bengals (2-3) have a dropping file through five video games, the primary time that is came about to the 2 Super Bowl groups since 1999 and simply the 3rd time within the Super Bowl generation. In that 1999 season, the Denver Broncos (1-4) needed to substitute John Elway at quarterback (retired) and each the Broncos and Atlanta Falcons needed to substitute their beginning working backs after Terrell Davis and Jamal Anderson have been misplaced for the season with knee accidents. 

The Bengals and Rams also are thirty first and thirty second in yards consistent with play this season, the 2 worst within the league. Cincinnati is thirty first (4.81) whilst Los Angeles is thirty second (4.80) even with Joe Burrow and Matthew Stafford at quarterback. 

Taysom Hill with a Madden rookie mode get started

Hill is not a starter within the New Orleans Saints offense (and is indexed as a good finish), but he is the primary participant since Bruce Harper in 1983 to have over 200 speeding yards and reasonable 10 yards consistent with elevate through five video games in a season. Hill has 21 carries for 228 yards and five touchdowns this yr, the one participant in NFL historical past to reasonable 10 yards consistent with elevate, rush for no less than 200 yards, and ranking five-plus touchdowns through the primary five video games.
