It’s Friday, which means it is time for an all-out blitz on Week Five.

Joining Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network to set the stage will be Chargers tight end Antonio Gates and Redskins coach Mike Shanahan. Gates and the Chargers will be trying to avoid becoming the first team to lose a game to the Saints when they walk into the Superdome on Sunday night. Shanahan and the Redskins will have the opposite task staring them in the eye as they try to give the Falcons their first loss of the season.

Mike Florio, Peter King and Hines Ward will be on hand to let us know how they think those two games as well as the rest of the Week Five slate will play out. Doug Flutie will also be on hand to talk about Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and there will be a look back at Thursday night’s Rams victory over the Cardinals.

It all kicks off at 5 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network.
