Top DSTs To Start in Week 5

Detroit Lions vs. CAR

The Lions’ defense has come on strong here to begin the season, as they’re allowing just 20.8 points per contest so far through four games. They now draw a matchup in Week 5 against a Carolina Panthers offense that’s struggling to stay competitive in games while Bryce Young learns the ropes of the NFL.

Green Bay Packers vs. LV

The Packers’ defense took a bit of a hit last week against the Lions, but they have the chance to bounce back in Week 5 against a Raiders offense that may be forced to start Aidan O’Connell again. They lose some of their appeal if Jimmy Garoppolo returns from his concussion, but keep Green Bay on your radar.
