MIAMI, FL (Sporting Alert) — The following are the NFL scores, results and records on Week 5 after the games that took place on Sunday.
Week 5 action saw the Jacksonville Jaguars (0-5) staying winless after five games, following a 17-9 defeat to the Pittsburgh Steelers (3-2).
There were also wins for Philadelphia Eagles (4-1), who bounced back from their Week 4 defeat with a 34-28 victory over the St. Louis Rams (1-3) and the San Diego Chargers, which improved to 4-1 on the season by blanking the New York Jets (1-4) by a score of 31-0.
On the individual side, there were career milestones for veteran quarterbacks Tom Brady and.
Manning achieved his 500th career touchdown pass in the Denver Broncos‘ 41-20 victory over the previously undefeated Arizona Cardinals.
Manning, who threw for a career-high 479 yards and a total of four touchdowns in the game, now moves to 503 career touchdown passes, which is five less than Brett Favre’s record of 508.
“Throwing touchdowns is a part of playing football,” Manning told reporters afterward. “But I guess for me, throwing touchdowns has helped teams I’ve been a part of win a lot of football games.
“I don’t think I’ve thrown a lot of touchdowns that didn’t mean something. Any time you have a big lead, all the years I played in Indianapolis, the coaches would always take us out, and if we were getting bad they’d take us out.
“So any ones that I’ve thrown usually resulted in our team trying to win the game or win the game, so I think about it that way.”
Brady meanwhile, became the sixth NFL quarterback to get to 50,000 career passing yards, during the New England Patriots’ (3-2) 43-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals (3-1)
He achieved the milestone in his 198th game and now joins Favre, Manning, Dan Marino, Drew Brees and John Elway on the list.
