After Week 5 of the NFL Season, each team has played at least four games, marking progress through a quarter of the season.  This year, each division has been relatively competitive, with surprise competitors and early failures in each.  Overall, the scene has been greatly changed from last year, and it looks to be a very exciting year.

In the NFC East, the Philadelphia Eagles have jumped out to a strong start with their revamped receiving corps.  Meanwhile, the Giants, who some had pegged as a dark horse Super Bowl contender, have fallen flat and sit at 0-5.  In the NFC West, the Rams have made a huge turnaround under new coach Sean McVay as Jared Goff has improved in his second year and Todd Gurley has returned to his rookie from, dominating on the ground.  The Arizona Cardinals have struggled after David Johnson suffered an injury that will cost him at least 8 games.  In the NFC South, the Panthers have jumped out in front with a 4-1 record.  In the AFC East, the Bills have seen a revival as they are tied for first in the AFC with the Jets and Patriots.  In the AFC South, the Jaguars find themselves in first with the other three teams one game behind.

Tom Brady leads the NFL in passing yards with 1702, followed by Carson Palmer with 1573.  Kareem Hunt leads the NFL with 609 rushing yards, followed by fellow rookie Leonard Fournette with 466.  Antonio Brown leads the NFL in receiving yards with 545 followed by AJ Green with 504.  Demarcus Lawrence has 8.5 sacks, leading the NFL.  Finally, Micah Hyde leads the NFL in interceptions with 4.

The rest of the season looks very promising as the teams continue to be tested and the contenders will be separated from the rest of the pack.  While some aspects of the NFL have been marred by the protests, fans can look forward to good games going forward.
