Hello everyone! Welcome to Week 5 of the 2015 NFL season.

It was another crazy week, all thanks to non-football moves. The Miami Dolphins fired Joe Philbin as head coach and replaced him with Dan Carpenter. The final straw happened when they lost across the pond to the New York Jets.

Speaking of goofs, the Seattle Seahawks defeated the Detroit Lions under controversy. It would’ve been déjà vu all over again if Green Bay became the victim.

The Lions were on the verge of rallying until Seattle corner Kam Chancellor batted the ball out of Calvin Johnson’s hands. Seattle LB K.J. Wright knocked the ball over the end zone, and the referee ruled it a touchback for Seattle.

NFL Head of Officials Dean Blandido stated on ESPN the call was wrong, which means someone’s in trouble. Again.
