Week 5 NFL preview: Drew Brees on the verge of history again; Seahawks looking for 5-0 start

Matt Ufford breaks down the most entertaining matchups in Week 5 of the NFL, headlined by the undefeated Saints traveling to Chicago and the Seahawks trying to replicate last week's road magic at Indianapolis. Also worth watching: Eagles-Giants, in the same way that burning cars get your attention.

We've got five games in this week's NFL slate that you should be watching, beginning with a Saints-Bears matchup in which Drew Brees will be trying to break his own record of 10 consecutive 300-yard passing games. Eagles-Giants features two of the league's worst defenses, while Lions-Packers promises to be an offensive shootout. Power running games and talented, young quarterbacks square off when the Seahawks put their 4-0 record on the line in Indianapolis, and the Texans and 49ers should put on a strong show despite their middling performances so far in 2013.

Make sure to check out all of the Uffsides Week 5 game previews:

New Orleans Saints vs. Chicago Bears
