NFL 5 1320 Brian Billick previews all the Week 5 NFL action 30231909 Look Forward: Brian Billick previews Week 5 Look+Forward%3A+Brian+Billick+previews+Week+5 NFL

Will the Week 5 action start to separate the contenders from the pretenders? There are 13 games on the schedule — and Super Bowl-winning coach Brian Billick previews each one in his countdown for FOXSports.com. | NFL Week 5 schedule | Power Rankings

Bob Donnan/Fernando Medina - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/06/100611-NFL-Gallery-Image-14_20111006210135162_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/06/100611-NFL-Gallery-Image-14_20111006210135162_107_80.JPG
NFL 5 1320 Brian Billick previews all the Week 5 NFL action 30231898 Cincinnati Bengals at Jacksonville Jaguars (Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET, CBS) Cincinnati+Bengals+at+Jacksonville+Jaguars+%28Sunday%2C+1%3A00+p.m.+ET%2C+CBS%29 NFL

I said it earlier in the week, Marvin Lewis deserves some Coach of the Year consideration after the first four games. On the flip side of that, Jack Del Rio deserves better than the situation his front office has pointed him in this season. In another battle of rookie quarterbacks, I look for Andy Dalton to outplay his peer, Blaine Gabbert. It's not because he is more talented, but because he has A.J. Green and Jermaine Gresham as weapons. Even still, Cedric Benson will be the key to this game. If he gets more than 100 yards, the Bengals win. It's that simple.

NFL 5 1320 Brian Billick previews all the Week 5 NFL action 30231894 Tampa Bay Buccaneers at San Francisco 49ers (Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ET, FOX) Tampa+Bay+Buccaneers+at+San+Francisco+49ers+%28Sunday%2C+4%3A05+p.m.+ET%2C+FOX%29 NFL

I love the personality of the Bucs, their QB and their coach, but their inability to get going in the first quarter may finally catch up with them this week. The 49ers defensive coordinator is doing wonders with the Patrick Willis-led defense. Willis looks to continue his streak of two-plus sacks in his last two meetings against Tampa Bay.

NFL 5 1320 Brian Billick previews all the Week 5 NFL action 30231889 Seattle Seahawks at New York Giants (Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET, FOX) Seattle+Seahawks+at+New+York+Giants+%28Sunday%2C+1%3A00+p.m.+ET%2C+FOX%29 NFL

Seattle is the biggest underdog on the board this week, and for good reason. They simply don’t travel well. Even though Tarvaris Jackson has won two of three starts against the Giants, I don’t anticipate they will have the same level of success they showed last week against the Falcons at home. New York will lean heavily on the combination backfield of Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs.

NFL 5 1320 Brian Billick previews all the Week 5 NFL action 30231890 Philadelphia Eagles at Buffalo Bills (Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET, FOX) Philadelphia+Eagles+at+Buffalo+Bills+%28Sunday%2C+1%3A00+p.m.+ET%2C+FOX%29 NFL

The fact that the 3-1 Bills are actually underdogs at home speaks volumes to the lack of faith in the legitimacy of the Bills. Defensively, Shawne Merriman and the Bills' pass rush will need to step up and put pressure on Michael Vick in the pocket. Offensively, the Bills will need to prepare for another shootout.

NFL 5 1320 Brian Billick previews all the Week 5 NFL action 30231891 Arizona Cardinals at Minnesota Vikings (Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET, FOX) Arizona+Cardinals+at+Minnesota+Vikings+%28Sunday%2C+1%3A00+p.m.+ET%2C+FOX%29 NFL

With games against the Packers, Bears and on the road at Carolina, this is most likely the best chance the Vikings have to get a win during the first half of the NFL season. If they struggle to score points against a generous Arizona defense, Leslie Frazier will be forced to put Christian Ponder in the lineup. I’m convinced he should have already done so.

Carolina is going to get an up close and personal look at what a championship team looks like. New Orleans is going to get an up close and personal look at what a future championship team looks like. Carolina’s no-name defense will struggle against the explosive Saints. I look for Saints tight end Jimmy Graham to continue his dominance over the past game and a half.

NFL 5 1320 Brian Billick previews all the Week 5 NFL action 30231896 Tennessee Titans at Pittsburgh Steelers (Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET, CBS) Tennessee+Titans+at+Pittsburgh+Steelers+%28Sunday%2C+1%3A00+p.m.+ET%2C+CBS%29 NFL

Some have been calling the Steelers defense old and slow, and now they have to stop the fastest player in the NFL. Chris Johnson has yet to hit full stride this season while Matt Hasselbeck has picked up the slack, but in this game the Titans matchup a lot more favorably out of the backfield than by challenging the defensive secondary. I look for CJ2K to have his biggest game so far this season.

Don McPeak - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/06/100611-NFL-Gallery-Image-7_20111006205915150_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/06/100611-NFL-Gallery-Image-7_20111006205915150_107_80.JPG
NFL 5 1320 Brian Billick previews all the Week 5 NFL action 30231897 New York Jets at New England Patriots (Sunday, 4:15 p.m. ET, CBS) New+York+Jets+at+New+England+Patriots+%28Sunday%2C+4%3A15+p.m.+ET%2C+CBS%29 NFL

The Jets defense will play New England better than anyone has this season, but Wes Welker still creates matchup problems for their secondary. This is a great opportunity for Mark Sanchez to silence his critics and prove he can lead this offense. Sanchez can’t afford to add to his five interceptions, because as it is so often in football, the team that wins the turnover battle will win this game.

NFL 5 1320 Brian Billick previews all the Week 5 NFL action 30231901 Oakland Raiders at Houston Texans (Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET, CBS) Oakland+Raiders+at+Houston+Texans+%28Sunday%2C+1%3A00+p.m.+ET%2C+CBS%29 NFL

Houston has a great opportunity to do what good teams do: Win at home. It will be tough to replace Andre Johnson, but they will do it collectively. Matt Schaub will spread it out, but more importantly, they will lean even harder on the legs of Arian Foster. As for Oakland, they finally combined a good statistical day of passing and rushing against New England, but put up only 19 points. Yards without points are like empty calories in a diet ... useless.

NFL 5 1320 Brian Billick previews all the Week 5 NFL action 30231907 Green Bay Packers at Atlanta Falcons (Sunday, 8:20 p.m. ET, NBC) Green+Bay+Packers+at+Atlanta+Falcons+%28Sunday%2C+8%3A20+p.m.+ET%2C+NBC%29 NFL

Atlanta is an amazing 22-2 at home under Matt Ryan, but one of those losses was to Green Bay. That Packers team wasn’t even as good as the one showing up this Sunday. Matt Ryan and Co. have yet to find a good rhythm. Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback in football right now, and he always shows up against the Falcons. In three starts against Atlanta, Rodgers has completed 82 of 108 passes for 1,023 yards and seven touchdowns.

NFL 5 1320 Brian Billick previews all the Week 5 NFL action 30231910 Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions (Monday, 8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN) Chicago+Bears+at+Detroit+Lions+%28Monday%2C+8%3A30+p.m.+ET%2C+ESPN%29 NFL

Chicago has renewed life after finding its running game last week against the Panthers. Ndamakong Suh will shoot down that momentum after the first couple of carries. The Bears will look more like they did in Week 3 than 4. Note to the Lions special teams units: The only way the Bears hang in this game is on the back on Devin Hester. Do yourselves a favor, don’t kick it to him.

Matthew Emmons - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/06/100611-NFL-Gallery-Image-13_20111006210135161_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/06/100611-NFL-Gallery-Image-13_20111006210135161_107_80.JPG
NFL 5 1320 Brian Billick previews all the Week 5 NFL action 30231899 Kansas City Chiefs at Indianapolis Colts (Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET, CBS) Kansas+City+Chiefs+at+Indianapolis+Colts+%28Sunday%2C+1%3A00+p.m.+ET%2C+CBS%29 NFL

Another gutty performance by the Colts, but they're still winless. The winner of this game will be the team whose quarterback limits mistakes and maintains possession the longest. Who knows, maybe the shouting match between Todd Haley and Matt Cassel is exactly the spark this offense needed.

John Rieger - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/06/100611-NFL-Gallery-Image-6_20111006205915153_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/10/06/100611-NFL-Gallery-Image-6_20111006205915153_107_80.JPG
NFL 5 1320 Brian Billick previews all the Week 5 NFL action 30231908 San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos (Sunday, 4:15 p.m. ET, ESPN) San+Diego+Chargers+at+Denver+Broncos+%28Sunday%2C+4%3A15+p.m.+ET%2C+ESPN%29 NFL

San Diego can’t overlook the Broncos if they are truly going to prove they have overcome the first half of the season maladies. To do so, they are going to have to do what other defenses haven’t: Stop Eric Decker. Decker has four touchdown receptions in the last three weeks, and he also scored in his last game against the Chargers. Decker may again get the stats, but the Chargers get the win.
