NFL Week 5 standings: Who leads heading in to Monday Night Football?


Week 5 of the NFL regular season has just one game remaining, a Monday Night Football match up between the New York Jets and Atlanta Falcons, but we already have a good idea of how things will stand heading in to next week.

After Sunday’s full schedule of action, there are just three undefeated teams remaining in the league — Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints.

While the undefeated teams are clearly the top performers in their division, there are just four divisions in the NFL that have a team with sole possession of first-place. In the NFC East, a 2-3 record is enough to stake claim to the top spot, while the AFC West has the Broncos and Chiefs battling it out with their unblemished records.

Here are the updated NFL standings heading in to the final game of Week 5:
