Week 5 kicked off last night with the St. Louis Rams pulling off a 17-3 upset win vs the Arizona Cardinals. The Rams move to 2-2 whilst the Cardinals are now 4-1.

Looking ahead to the rest of the action in Week 5 now and there are plenty of great games to watch on Sunday.

The Philadelphia Eagles are fresh off a hard fought win over their division rival New York Giants and they now face another tough test this week. The 3-1 Eagles go on the road to Heinz Field in Pittsburgh to take on the 1-3 Steelers. Another standout game to watch will be in Gillette Stadium as Peyton Manning takes his Denver Broncos to New England to face Tom Brady and the Patriots.

Those are just some of the standout games in store this week and there is lots to look forward too as numerous teams will be looking to get their playoff aspirations back on track with a win on Sunday.

So without further ado, here are my picks for Week 5.
