The 2022-23 NFL season rages on in Week 5, with the season’s quarter-way mark falling somewhere between Weeks 4 and 5 of the 18-week season.

In Week 5, the 3-1 New York Giants take on the 3-1 Green Bay Packers in London in an early fight for the NFC pecking order. Elsewhere in the conference, Jalen Hurts and the 4-0 Philadelphia Eagles travel West to defend their perfect record against Kyler Murray and the 2-2 Arizona Cardinals. Finally, the 3-1 Dallas Cowboys will look to put the 2-2 defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams in an even deeper hole to start the season.

In the AFC, it’s all about primetime. The 1-2-1 Indianapolis Colts and 2-2 Denver Broncos will each look to right their ships on Thursday Night Football. On Sunday Night Football, Joe Burrow and Lamar Jackson will go head-to-head for the first time this season as the 2-2 Cincinnati Bengals and 2-2 Baltimore Ravens fight for the the AFC North lead. And to close out Week 5, the 1-3 Las Vegas Raiders will try to build momentum and put themselves just one game off the division lead, if they can beat Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football.
