NFL Week 5: Giants Beat Pack In London, Philly Remains Unbeaten

Jonathan Grant | October 10th, 2022

The Green Bay Packers were hoping that they would be able to take some fond memories from their first-ever trip to London. They wouldn’t have taken too many of those on Sunday, however, as the New York Giants erased an early 10-0 deficit to hold them off and win 27-22 when time expired. Daniel Jones was 21-27 through the air and Saquon Barkley, returning to form, had 13 carries for 70 yards and a touchdown. The Giants’ record has now improved to 4-1, a dramatic rise considering that they have already matched last season’s win total. Elsewhere, the Philadelphia Eagles continued their unbeaten start to the season by taking a close-run 20-17 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on the road.

The visitors got exactly 300 yards of total offense from quarterback Jalen Hurts, with two rushing TD’s coming on the ground from him, but they still required a late field goal to miss in order to record the ‘W.’ Hurts engineered a 70-yard, 17-play drive that culminated in a field goal with 1:45 left, and that proved to be enough on the day to move the team to 5-0 thus far. Sticking with the NFC East, the Dallas Cowboys also stayed close in the division, running their record to 4-1 with a statement over the LA Rams. The 22-10 win saw the defense force three turnovers, including a DeMarcus Lawrence fumble return early, in a dominant display. In the night cap, the Baltimore Ravens seized control of the AFC North by taking a 19-17 win at home over the Cincinnati Bengals. Justin Tucker’s game-winning field goal as time expired, from 43 yards, was the ultimate difference maker, putting the Ravens at 3-2 on the year.
