NFL Week 5 Summary

NFL Week 5 Summary

NFL history was nearly made in Week 5 in Denver's 51-48 win at Dallas, with the Cowboys becoming the first team to cover against the Broncos in 2013 as they were 7.5-point underdogs. It was the fourth highest-scoring game in NFL history and second-highest in regulation since the 1970 merger -- the total was set at 56.5.

Peyton Manning threw for 414 yards to pass Dan Marino for No. 2 on the all-time yardage list. Cowboys counterpart Tony Romo threw for five touchdowns and a franchise-record 506 yards but his late fourth-quarter interception led to Denver's game-winning field goal. Romo was just the fifth QB in NFL history with a 500-yard, 5-TD game. Dallas was the second team in AFL or NFL history with three players who had at least 120 receiving yards and at least one TD catch.

The biggest favorite of Week 5 was a 1-3 St. Louis team at -11 because the Rams were hosting the winless and inept Jaguars. St. Louis won 34-20, covering on an Austin Pettis 31-yard TD catch from Sam Bradford with 5:45 left in the game. Jacksonville also lost 2013 No. 2 overall pick left tackle Luke Joeckel for the season to a broken ankle in the game. The Jags have yet to come close to covering a game in 2013.

The biggest underdog to win in Week 5 was the New York Jets at +10 at Atlanta on Monday night, 30-28. The Falcons had rallied from a 27-14 fourth-quarter deficit to take the lead on Matt Ryan's 3-yard touchdown pass with 1:54 left, but Jets rookie QB Geno Smith was left with enough time to get New York into field-goal position, and Nick Folk won the game at the gun on a 43-yarder. Smith had his best game as a pro, completing 16 of 20 for 199 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. He was only the third Jets QB in history to complete at least 80 percent of his passes and have three TD passes in a game.

Underdogs dominated Week 5 overall, covering in eight of the 14 games.
