The Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks both have big games in a Week 5 10 a.m. schedule filled with quality matchups. New to Niners Nation? Sign up here and join the discussion!

Week 5 of the 2013 NFL season is upon us, and our San Francisco 49ers will be getting going a little later today on Sunday Night Football. In the meantime, Sunday features a loaded AM schedule. Due to the byes and the Raiders game getting bumped back to 8:35 p.m. PT, 8 of today's 11 non SNF games are taking place at 10 a.m. It should be a wild morning.

There are plenty of great games this morning, but two in particular are noteworthy. The first is of course the Seattle Seahawks. They are traveling to the midwest to face the Indianapolis Colts. The Seahawks are coming off a huge comeback win over the Houston Texans, and are three point favorites over Indianapolis. The Seahawks are better than the Colts, but it will be interesting to see how Seattle appears coming out of the gate. Houston controlled the game in the first half, before losing Brian Cushing early in the second half. Can Indianapolis get the Seahawks on their heels early?

The other game is this week's Chefs Watch matchup in which the Kansas City Chiefs travel to face the Tennessee Titans. The Chiefs are only three point favorites over Tennessee, which I find a bit low. If the Chiefs are legit, they should be able to handle their business against Ryan Fitzpatrick. I suppose the QB change might have thrown off their planning a little bit, but I still think they win this game handily.

The rest of the schedule is nothing to sneeze at. The 4-0 New Orleans Saints travel to face the 3-1 Chicago Bears. The 3-1 Detroit Lions travel to face the 1-2 Green Bay Packers. The 4-0 Patriots travel to face the 2-2 Cincinnati Bengals. The list goes on, and it's impressive. A lot of teams have a chance to make statements this week.

We'll be back with a PM game thread at 1 p.m.
