Who plays Monday night football tonight week 5?
The streaking Baltimore Ravens host the 1-3 Indianapolis Colts at the M&T Bank Stadium in the final game of Week 5 of NFL action on 11 October.
AFC North leaders the Baltimore Ravens host the 1-3 Indianapolis Colts at the M&T Bank Stadium on Monday night in the final game of Week 5 of NFL action. While the Ravens hold a 3-1 record going into the game and are on a three-match winning streak, the Colts may fancy their chances of adding a second consecutive win on the back of a 27-17 victory over the Dolphins last time out with the Ravens having ridden their luck in a one-point victory over the Chiefs and a two-point win over Detroit – featuring Justin Tucker’s NFL record winning field goal - before blowing Denver away in their last outing.
Key to the Ravens’ dominance over the Broncos was the 300-plus yard display of Lamar Jackson, who adds an extra dual threat dimension to the Raven’s offense on the ground. Jackson, the 2019 MVP, picked up 193 yards in weeks 1 and 2 combined and along with Latavius Murray, Ty'Son Williams, Devonta Freeman the Ravens quarterback will be looking to lead his side to NFL history with a 44th consecutive 100-yard rushing game.
For the Colts, there was encouragement in the Dolphins win not only as it got them on the AFC South board but also because Carson Wentz is showing signs of returning to form after his August foot surgery, putting on 228 yards and two touchdowns in that much-needed win.
Right tackle Braden Smith, cornerback Rock Ya-Sin, running back Jordan Wilkins and defensive end Kwity Paye have all been ruled out for the Colts.
