Week 7 was certainly an exciting week. Two records were broken and we are starting to see the cream of the crop rise to the top. The Patriots proved they can still score a lot of points in a victory over the Jets. The Falcons continue to lose, as they fell hard to the Ravens. The Titans played the Redskins close, and Colt McCoy eventually took over for Washington. McCoy will start next week. The Seahawks lost a close one to the Rams. I'm not sure if this shows something about the Rams or is an inditement of the Seahawks and how their season is going. The Jags finally got a win, as they beat the Browns fairly easily. Blake Bortles continues to prove himself and the running game really helped the Jags out. The Colts are looking better and the Bengals continued to slide as the Colts blanked them 27-0.
The Vikings lost a close game to the Bills. Kyle Orton continues to show signs of life for the Bills and Bridgewater is strugling, but you have to think he can only get better. The Saints can't seem to win away from home. They were defeated by the Lions who didn't have Calvin Johnson. The Saints got a big win over the Bears and Jay Cutler continues to play poorly. The Panthers lost to the Packers. Rodgers continues to prove why he's one of, if not the best, quarterbacks in the league. The Chiefs beat the Chargers in a shocker. The Cardinals beat the Redskins and remain atop the NFC West.
The Cowboys beat the Giants and Murray has started the season with 7 consecutive 100 yard games. This is the new NFL record. The 49ers got hammered by the Broncos, continuing the question of whether or not they will have a new coach next year. This game also featured a huge record breaking performance, as Peyton Manning got the all-time touchdown record. He has certainly done it all with class and humility. The Steelers beat the Texans in the Monday night game. Not sure if this proves anything about either team.
In week 8 the Chargers and Broncos hook up in what is probably the biggest game of the week on Thursday. These are two teams that should head to the playoffs and are riding two very hot quarterbacks. I think that Denver probably has a little too much on defense for San Diego.
The Ravens and Bengals play in a game of two loss teams that they both need to win. The Ravens have played very well this season and I think they may beat the Bengals in this one.
The Eagles will play the Cardinals in the NFC's best game of the week. Both teams have one loss and the winner will come out with at least a tie for the league's best record. The Cardinals are very hot, but I just think the Eagles are starting to put it together and have too much fire power for the Cardinals.
The Colts and Steelers play in a very crucial game. I think the Colts will come away with this one.
The Packers play the Saints in New Orleans. The only reason I mention this one, is that it's in New Orleans where the Saints are undefeated in their only two wins. I'm calling for an upset and look to see the Saints get back on track.
