NFL Week 5 – What To Look Forward to From This Week’s Matchups


Mohamed Bughrara

Colts (2-2-1) at Broncos (2-3), Colts win 12-9

If you missed this game, you didn’t miss much because there wasn’t a single touchdown scored during the whole game, and the game somehow went into overtime. Can’t really call this a defensive matchup since it was more an offensive struggle. When NFL spectators leave a game early, it’s generally because their team is losing badly, but that wasn’t the case Thursday night. Due to the Denver Broncos’ awful performance, Broncos fans opted to flee Empower Field at Mile High immediately before the start of overtime in the Colts’ 12-9 victory. Both Matt Ryan and Russell Wilson finished the game with 2 interceptions a piece including the game clinching interception by Stephon Gilmore thrown by Wilson. 

Giants (3-1) vs. Packers (3-1) in London, 9:30 a.m.: 

For the first time in London, two teams with winning records will square off. However, Aaron Rodgers has five more turnovers this season than he had all of last season (four). With Daniel Jones out of practice this week due to an ankle injury and WRs Kenny Golladay and Kladarius Tony out with injuries, New York faces an uphill battle. To have a chance in this game, the Giants must continue their stout defense and control the ball with Saquon Barkley.
