Green Bay 14 - 17 Philadelphia

The 4-0 Eagles hosted the 1-3 Packers in this NFC match-up with the former looking to extend their winning start to the campaign and the latter attempting to re-build some momentum through the brilliant, Aaron Rodgers.

Philadelphia struggled to gain any sort of rhythm initially and subsequently an awake Green Bay defense snapped up to intercept Carson Wentz long pass down-field. Fortunately for the Philly faithful, Pack-town were only able to capitalize with a field-goal and take a 3-0 lead.

It was only in the 2nd quarter that the Eagles woke up. Wentz spotted a wide open Nelson Agholor and lofted it deep for the run-and-grab touchdown.

Green Bay responded with another field-goal to take the game into HT at 7-6 to the Eagles.

2nd half the boys in green received the ball back and that's when they started running the ball through Jay Ajayi, who can only be described and compared to a run-away train at times. Thankfully, he stayed on the tracks long enough to bundle into the end zone and extend his team's lead to 8 points. 

Unfortunately, it became a rather unpleasant experience for the Eagles after that. Wentz managed to throw anther interception and Aaron Rodgers did what Aaron Rodgers does; clutch. Late in the 4th he waltzed into the Eagles end zone and then secured the 2-point conversion to tie up the game. 

Wentz still couldn't quite get his head around the way things were going and thus the Eagles punted the ball back to Green Bay with 3 and a half minutes left. Inexplicably, on 3rd and 8, Rodgers threw to a wide open Jimmy Graham for what should have been a 1st down and much more, only for the big tight-end to drop the pass and bring up 4th down. The crowd erupted with noise, which I can only put down to excitement and surprise to be honest!

Rejuvenated, Philadelphia got the ball back from Green Bay's punt and began to expertly chew clock until they were safely in field-goal range with 20 seconds. Jake Elliott did the rest and pulled out a hard-earned, but rather fortunate victory. 

Week 6 sees the Eagles visit the windy city of Chicago to take on the 0-4 Bears. Meanwhile, Green Bay, host the Detroit Lions in what should be a hotly contested Divisional match-up.
