NFL scores week 5 coverage is complete from Sunday. The NFL scores week 5 coverage is all from October 10, with one more game on Monday night before we know all the results. Sunday was packed with interesting games, and several upsets that are going to really re-shape how the NFL standings look in week 6. Many home teams that seemed to have an advantage fell on Sunday, including several that choked away their opportunities to win in the final minutes.
The Cincinnati Bengals were tied with mere seconds to go in their game. Then quarterback Caron Palmer threw an interception that Tampa Bay was able to take back to field goal position. They kicked the field goal to win it, and the home town fans were left in complete shock. The opposite happened in Washington, where the Redskins came back to kick a field goal against the Green Bay Packers and send it into overtime. Then they kicked another field goal in overtime to win a game that seemed destined to fall in favor of Green Bay from the opening snap.
The Oakland Raiders upset the San Diego Chargers, sending San Diego into a tie for last place in the AFC West with a 2-3 record. That hasn’t been heard in quite a while, and it shows that these Chargers are really struggling. They were lucky that the Kansas City Chiefs finally lost their first game of the season in Indianapolis, meaning they are still only 1.5 games out of first place. In the AFC South, there is now a four-way tie where every team is 3-2 heading into week 6 of the NFL season. That is going to get very interesting as the season progresses.
Minnesota vs. New York Jets is the Monday night football game on October 11, and it should be a really interesting one with Randy Moss now playing for the Vikings. Can the Vikings overcome the Brett Favre controversy to prevail? Or are the New York Jets simply going to be too good for them to deal with?
