Week 5 NFL Scores: Philadelphia Eagles Drop To 1-4 After 31-24 Loss To Buffalo Bills

The Philadelphia Eagles lost to the Buffalo Bills 31-24 in Buffalo Sunday, dropping them to 1-4 and putting their playoff contention in serious doubt. The New York Giants also lost to the Seattle Seahawks 36-25 at home, dropping their record to 3-2 and giving the Redskins the tie-break atop the division.

The Eagles got down early as a result of turnovers. The Bills didn't dominate the Eagles offensively, but the Eagles shot themselves in the foot by committing five turnovers. Michael Vick had a bittersweet day (mostly bitter), passing for over 300 yards and two touchdowns, while breaking the NFL career mark for rushing yards by a quarterback previously held by Randall Cunningham. But, Vick also threw four interceptions, including the decisive one that ended any hope of an Eagles comeback.

For the Giants, Eli Manning threw for over 400 yards, but was intercepted three times by the Seahawks defense, including one that was returned for a touchdown. The Giants struggled to run the ball effectively, as no player scored a touchdown on the ground or came anywhere close to 100 yards.
