NFL Week 5 Recap


Matthew Kalie, Author

Week 5 of the NFL season started off with one of the most boring games fans have seen in a while. No touchdowns were scored in the Colts Broncos game, but the Colts did end up winning 12-9.

The Giants took it to the Packers and won 27-22, as they improved to 4-1 on the year. That Giants offense looks legit with Saquon Barkley healthy.

The Bills beat down the Steelers in Buffalo 38-3 with a huge game from Josh Allen, Stephon Diggs, and Gabe Davis.

The Browns lost the game against the Chargers in Cleveland after the Chargers made a questionable decision going for it on 4th-and-1 on their own 46-yard line. Despite the poor decision, the Browns choked again and shot themselves in the foot once again.

The Vikings beat the Bears in a close game after the Bears came back from a 21-3 deficit to make it close but could not complete the comeback.

The Saints beat the Seahawks in a shoot out, 39-32 with a monster game from Taysom Hill.

The Jets blew out the Dolphins 40-17. The Dolphins struggled without quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, and the Jets look much improved.

The Bucs beat the Falcons 21-15 and one of the worst roughing the passer calls was called on the Falcons that could have given them a chance to come back.

The Titans beat the Commanders in a close 21-17 game.

Houston beat the Jags 13-6.

The 49ers took care of the Panthers 37-15, and the Panthers fired head coach Matt Rhule as they have seen enough from him.

Cooper Rush and the Cowboys beat the Rams 22-10, with struggles continuing to show without a decent WR2 to match with Kupp.

The Eagles beat the Cardinals in a 20-17 close game, and the Eagles are now 5-0.

The Ravens beat the Bengals 19-17 on Sunday Night Football.

And by far the best game of the week was Monday night Chiefs and Raiders. The Chiefs won 30-29 led by 4 touchdowns from Travis Kelce. The Raiders scored a deep touchdown to make it a one-point game and went for the 2-point conversion and failed.
