NFL Week 5 Second Shift Open Thread: Cowboys vs Bengals, Falcons vs Broncos featured

Join us below as our NFL Week 5 coverage continues!

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at San Francisco 49ers Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Our coverage of the NFL’s Week 5 lineup continues, with several games being played during the second shift:

  • Atlanta Falcons (3-1) at Denver Broncos (4-0)
  • Cincinnati Bengals (2-2) at Dallas Cowboys (3-1)
  • Buffalo Bills (2-2) at Los Angeles Rams (3-1)
  • San Diego Chargers (1-3) at Oakland Raiders (3-1)

The Atlanta Falcons are on a three-game winning streak after dropping their season opener to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but will face a tough Denver Broncos team who are picking up in 2016 right where they left off in 2015. This should be a good match-up, with the home team Broncos getting the advantage.

A talented but self-inflicted-wound Bengals team will travel to Dallas to face a Cowboys team who is performing well under the direction of rookie quarterback Dak Prescott... This should be a good game, and despite the Cowboys being favored, the Bengals could execute an upset if they play four quarters of good football.

And of course tonight, the New York Giants will face the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field for Sunday Night Football.

This is your NFL Week 5 Second Shift Open Thread... Have fun!
