Five weeks into the NFL season, one of the biggest storylines, sadly, has been injuries.
Week 5 brought more devastation as the New York Giants lost several players, including Odell Beckham Jr., and the Houston Texans lost J.J. Watt.
Another storyline this season has also been exactly what the NFL likes: parity. The Kansas City Chiefs are red hot, but after them, it is a jumble of 4-1, 3-2, and 2-3 teams that seem capable of winning on any given week.
As we head into Week 6, we hope for more answers about who is a contender and who is a pretender. Take a look at where every team stand right now below:
32. Cleveland Browns

Last week: Lost to the Jets 17-14
This week: at Houston Texans
One thing to know: After another poor start in their fifth game of the season, the Browns benched rookie DeShone Kizer at halftime against the Jets with backup Kevin Hogan. Cleveland will be sticking with Hogan for their game this week against the Texans.
31. New York Giants
Last week: Lost to the Chargers 27-22
This week: at Denver Broncos
One thing to know: The Giants saw whatever was left of their season end in brutal fashion in Week 5. Sterling Shephard, Brandon Marshall, and Dwayne Harris all left the game with injuries. Then Odell Beckham Jr. fractured his ankle in gruesome fashion, ending his season. Moments later, Eli Manning was strip-sacked, and the Chargers scored a game-winning touchdown to push the Giants to 0-5.
30. San Francisco 49ers

Last week: Lost to the Colts 26-23
This week: at Washington Redskins
One thing to know: San Francisco has lost their previous four games by a combined 11 points. So while they’re postseason dreams for this year are already over, there’s at least the chance that they’ll have something to build on come 2018 if they can turn these close games around.
