But while the Broncos/Jaguars game might be a blowout of mass proportions, a few other games offer up very intriguing storylines.

Let's get to the five to see for Week 6 in the NFL!

5. New York Giants (0-5) at Chicago Bears (3-2) - 8:25 PM ET, NFL Network (Thurs.)

It's amazing to me that the Giants are on the verge of an 0-6 start. They have no business beating the Bears in Chicago, so it feels like the loss is inevitable at this point. Even though the Bears have lost two straight, their defense is good enough to rebound with a big time performance here. Should the Giants indeed lose this game, could Tom Coughlin really be fired?

4. Tennessee Titans (3-2) at Seattle Seahawks (4-1) - 4:05 PM ET, CBS

The Titans' offense proved they weren't the same without Jake Locker in their loss to the Chiefs, and I would expect a similar situation in this one. It's hard to see the Titans mustering a whole lot of yardage offensively, so the defense will need to be spectacular for them to be able to beat the Seahawks. Pete Carroll is a master motivator, and he'll have his team ready to attack on Sunday. Don't be shocked to see a blowout in Seattle.

3. Green Bay Packers (2-2) at Baltimore Ravens (3-2) - 1 PM ET, FOX

Losing Clay Matthews to injury for a while is a game-changer for the Packers, but the Ravens haven't exactly been setting the world on fire with their offense. The winner of this game has a real good chance to reel off several wins in a row, since neither team's schedule is all that daunting over the next month or so. Don't expect Baltimore to establish much of a running game against the Green Bay defense, which means the weight of the game will ride on the arm of Joe Flacco. Sometimes that's a good thing, sometimes that's a bad thing.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-5) at Denver Broncos (5-0) - 4:05 PM ET, CBS

In case you haven't heard, this game opened with the largest point spread in NFL history, with the Broncos favored by a whopping 28 points. To be honest, that number might be a little low. The Broncos scored 51 points a week ago in Dallas, and you guessed it, the Jags have only scored 51 points the entire season. Luckily for Jags fans, the NFL draft gets closer and closer as the days progress. Final score: Broncos 573, Jaguars 2.

1. New Orleans Saints (5-0) at New England Patriots (4-1) - 4:25 PM ET, FOX

While the game is still huge, this would have been much bigger had the Patriots not stunk up the joint last Sunday against Cincinnati. If the do it again this week, the Saints might beat them by 40. I'm serious. With the way Drew Brees is playing, there's no way that New England will be able to completely shut down this offense. That means that the Pats have to find a way to score points if they want to stay in the game.

A few weeks ago, I predicted this would be the first blemish on the Saints record. Right now, I'd like to go back on that pick. Tom Brady's face in the picture above explains his reaction to my previous statement.
