Week 5 of the 2019 NFL season continues with just a pair of late afternoon games.

The better game on the late afternoon schedule looks to be the Green Bay Packers squaring off against the Dallas Cowboys. Both teams sit atop their respective divisional standings with identical 3-1 records. Both teams are expected to be strong playoff contenders this season, and it would not be a surprise if they faced off again in the 2019-20 NFC playoffs.

The other late afternoon game features the hapless Denver Broncos taking on their AFC West rivals the Los Angeles Chargers in a game the Chargers need to stay within striking distance of the divisional leaders, the Kansas City Chiefs.

Enjoy the games everybody. Use this thread to comment on whichever late afternoon games catch your fancy.
