Week 5 in the NFL has arrived. Here are the top games and storylines, as well as how to watch on the new NFL+ streaming service, where you can catch all games in your local market and prime time games during the regular season. (All times ET.)

Sunday, Oct. 9

New York Giants at Green Bay Packers (in London), 9:30 a.m.

The Giants are 3-1, but now they face arguably their toughest test this season against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. You can watch this game on NFL+ here or on NFL Network.

Detroit Lions at New England Patriots, 1 p.m.

Los Angeles Chargers at Cleveland Browns, 1 p.m.

When these two teams met last season, it was one of the best games of the year. Now Justin Herbert leads the Chargers into Cleveland against the run-first Browns. You can watch this game on NFL+ here or on NFL Network.

Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars, 1 p.m.

The Texans are the last remaining winless team in the NFL, and beating a much-improved Jaguars team led by Trevor Lawrence will be no picnic. You can watch this game on NFL+ here or on NFL Network.

Atlanta Falcons at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 1 p.m.

Tom Brady and the Bucs have lost two straight and sit even in the NFC South with the Falcons, who can really put pressure on Tampa Bay with a win. You can watch this game on NFL+ here or on NFL Network.

The Tyreek Hill Bowl? The star wideout himself said he chose to join the Dolphins over the Jets because of "those state taxes, man." You can watch this game on NFL+ here or on NFL Network.

Tennessee has won two straight after starting the season 0-2, while Carson Wentz and the Commanders are struggling to find any reason for optimism at the moment. You can watch this game on NFL+ here or on NFL Network.
