Just two games (yes, you read that right) are on deck for the late game spread in Week 5. One of those will be nationally televised on FOX, with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman with the call in Arlington, Texas at AT&T Stadium. Here’s the two matchups we have.

It’ll be the 37th time these two franchises meet, which includes eight postseason matchups. Not many will forget about the last time they met in Dallas nearly two years ago to the day, when Aaron Rodgers helped pilot a last-minute drive to connect with Davante Adams with 11 seconds left to get the Packers a 35-31 win. Of course, it was nearly Deja Vu from the playoff meeting the season before. Green Bay leads the all-time series 19-17.

As for the other matchup, it’s a storied division rivalry that sees its 120th meeting in franchise history. Denver leads 66-52-1, and holds the lone playoff win in their series history.
