The NFL is certainly full of surprises and excitement as Week 4 proved. Kudos goes out to the Atlanta Falcons, Arizona Cardinals, and Houston Texans for remaining undefeated through the first quarter of the season. On the flip side, the Cleveland Browns and New Orleans Saints are still looking for their first win.
This week starts off strong with a battle between the undefeated Arizona Cardinals and the St. Louis Rams on Thursday night. St. Louis has shown improvement this year over last, but it still has not been enough to come out ahead when all is said and done.
Other exciting matchups include the Philadelphia Eagles at Pittsburgh Steelers and the Denver Broncos at New England Patriots on Sunday.
Monday night is sure to excite with the Houston Texans looking for their fifth win of the season over the New York Jets.
