NFL Week 5 Recap

Whether you loved him or hated him, he helped form the NFL into the product it is today

The Dream Team continued their skid by losing their 4th straight game. Both the Packers and Lions remained undefeated with the Lions defeating division rival Chicago. It looks like the early game on Thanksgiving might matter for the first time since Barry Sanders was playing. Dwayne Bowe, Victor Cruz, Steve Smith 1.0, and Brandon Lloyd all had circus catches.

Buffalo 31 – Philadelphia 24: Michael Vick threw 4 INT’s as the Eagles continued their losing streak. Fred Jackson had almost 200 total yards of offense for the Bills. Nick Barnett had a pick 6 for the Bills, the third game in a row that they have done so.

Kansas City 28 – Indianapolis 24: Matt Cassel threw 4 TD passes, with two each going to Breaston and Bowe (I linked one of Bowe’s at the top of this post). Jackie Battle had 119 yards on 19 carries for Chiefs. Curtis Painter had a good game throwing for 277 yards and 2 TD’s.

Minnesota 34 – Arizona 10: The Vikings got off to a great start thanks to three 1st quarter TD runs from Adrian Peterson. Arizona was never in this game as the Vikings were only outscored in the 2nd half 7-6. While the lack os 2nd half points is still a problem, at least the defense played 4 quarters. Kevin Kolb has been disappointing for the Cardinals and that continued Sunday as he was 21-42 for 232 yards and 2 INT’s.
