The number of good games this NFL week 5 was once again surprising even for the biggest football fans. There was a rout by the Bills and the Patriots, a 71-point game, and the team winning the fifth straight game of the season.
Week 5 kicked off with the Colts’ visit to the Broncos on Thursday night. Many already predicted the balance between the two teams, but the truth is that the Colts practically shut the Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado. Neither team managed to score a touchdown, and what was seen was a lot of field goals happening. The Colts turned the game around in the end, scoring in the last quarter and also in overtime. 12-9 win for the visitors.
