Football season is in full swing. I’m so happy that football is back, but the season is going way too fast, if you ask me. I can’t believe we’re already into week five. Make it slow down! Many things have changed early this season. The big change was Aaron Rodgers being out for the entire season with the New York Jets. That was a big bummer. As a Detroit Lions fan, I have usually rooted against Rodgers, but I was excited to see what he could bring to the Jets. So, who are the best NFL teams right now?
Many of the teams that were expected to do well this season, indeed, are doing well, but there have been plenty of surprises. For example, going into the season, many thought the Kansas City Chiefs would make it to the Super Bowl again this year. Don’t get me wrong, they are that good. But, they fell to the Detroit Lions during that first NFL game of the season. That was a huge surprise to many NFL fans, even though I wasn’t totally shocked, because I believed in the Lions. But, the rest of the season has been shakier than expected for the Kansas City Chiefs. They squeaked past the New York Jets with a small win last weekend. Oh, and Taylor Swift is at a lot of their games. There’s that.
That said, the Chiefs are still among my picks for the best NFL teams right now. Even with their shaky start, they’re better than most of the NFL teams right now. Similarly, I think the Eagles are flying this year, even though they’ve had a few difficult games. So, who are the best NFL teams as of week five? Read on for my thoughts.
