It isn't often that teams face a must-win in Week 5, but in a a year as competitive as this in the NFL, starting the season 1-4 can be treacherous. That's the case for the Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars this week, who both are aiming for their second win of the year.

The Dolphins, who lost a painful game to the Arizona Cardinals last week, will be on the road again to face the Cincinnati Bengals in a 1 p.m. kickoff.

Meanwhile, the Jacksonville Jaguars host the Chicago Bears, fresh off their Monday night win, at 4:05 p.m.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a bye this week.
