Another week of the NFL is behind us, and there’s plenty to pour over from this past weekend.

Here are my four biggest observations from week five.

1) Cam Newton looks as good as he’s ever been.

I was curious how Newton would respond on the field after the media cycle he had this past week. Lots of players wouldn’t bring their best game after getting dragged by pundits everywhere for laughing at a female reporter’s question.

The dual-threat quarterback had no problem blocking out the noise. He lit up a very good Detroit Lions defense on the way to getting his team to 4-1.

2) Mitch Trubisky looked okay in his debut.

Most NFL quarterbacks struggle mightily in their NFL debuts, and the UNC product had some rough moments. However, he also tossed a touchdown, and only threw one interception. Not too bad for a first NFL start.

3) The Browns might not win a game.

The Cleveland Browns could easily go 0-16 this season. Their best shot at a victory was this past weekend against the New York Jets, and they couldn’t get it done. It’s incredible how bad of an organization they are.

4) Aaron Rodgers is downright incredible.

I’m a pretty big critic of Rodgers off the field, but there’s no doubt the man is outstanding under center. His late game heroics against Dallas were just another reminder how blessed the Packers organization is to have him calling the shots.
