BATTLE OF PENNSYLVANIA TAKES CENTER STAGE ON FOX – The NFL on FOX marches into Week 5 this Sunday, Oct. 7 with singleheader coverage of five hard-hitting matchups. In Pittsburgh, a high-profile matchup takes top-billing as Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers host Michael Vick and the Eagles. Joe Buck, Troy Aikman and Pam Oliver call the action from Heinz Field. With their offense seemingly back in gear, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers face Colts rookie quarterback Andrew Luck. Undefeated and looking like the best in the NFC, Matt Ryan and the Falcons are on the road to take on Robert Griffin III and the Redskins. The 4:00 window features Jay Cutler and the Bears taking on the Jaguars in Jacksonville while Cam Newton and the Panthers host Russell Wilson and the Seahawks.

BILLICK EXAMINES IMPACT OF COLTS AND LUCK LOSING HEAD COACH – It was announced earlier this week that Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano was diagnosed with a treatable form of leukemia and is out indefinitely while he receives treatment. Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians takes over as interim head coach. NFL on FOX analyst and Super Bowl-winning head coach Brian Billick looked at the impact the midseason change will have on the Colts and Andrew Luck on the Colin Cowherd show earlier this week. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to Chuck and his family. It is a jolt because they’re building something there. Obviously going forward it’s all about developing Andrew Luck and that young offense while piecing together some of the things defensively,” said Billick. “This is a blow. It’s something that they’re going to have to gather the troops around. They’ll be worrying about Chuck, but by the same token saying ‘Ok, we still have to have that growth. We have an opportunity and an obligation to one another to go forward.’ So it will be a rallying of the troops and with the team feeding off of that emotion.”
