Week 7 of the NFL kicked off in London and ended in Denver. There was a lot of drama around the league, but none more than the NFC West rivalry game between Seattle and Arizona. This was a defensive coordinator’s dream. If either team only allowed 6 points through 75 minutes, they would’ve had the defensive performance of the year, unfortunately for the fans, it was against each other on the same week. Brock Osweiler made his debut back at Sports Authority field since he left this postseason for “greener pastures”, it didn’t turn out the way he would have liked and the Texans couldn’t avoid the stampede that is the Denver defense. Week 8 is sure to bring us some more drama, just the way we like it.

 

32.      15578552015 Cleveland Browns

Record: 0-7

Last Week: 31

Poor Cleveland, they just can’t seem to catch a break. Week after week they desperately try to get that ever-elusive W, but just can’t seem to fit it all together. Kevin Hogan ran for 104 yards, but only threw for 100 yards. For the first time since 1960 a QB ran for over 100 yards in his first start.

31.       17994552009 San Francisco 49ers

Record: 1-6

Last Week: 32


The 49ers couldn’t stop a faucet leak this year. They have allowed 734 yards on the ground in the last 3 weeks! The QB situation in San Fran is becoming the least of Chip Kelly’s problems.

30.        364 Chicago Bears

Record: 1-6

Last Week: 30

Matt Barkley had a tough outing last week. He has the opportunity to go against the red-hot Minnesota defense next week, but I mention the opportunity, because Cutler could come back. Who knows, Chicago is so enthralled by the Cubs right now that the Bears are just an afterthought.

29.       15988562013 Jacksonville Jaguars

Record: 2-4

Last Week: 25

The Jags are on one this year, and it’s not the good kind. When the oppositions punter can run for a first down on 4th and 24, you’re gonna have a bad time. The defense has yet to get a turnover this year either. That’s not a problem, unless the offense can hold onto the ball for the rest of the year.

28.      f1wggq2k8ql88fe33jzhw641u Carolina Panthers

Record: 1-5

Last Week: 29

Can the Panthers turn their season around after the bye week? The defense has been struggling and they play the Cardinals at home this week. Arizona is out to prove that putting up points is not a problem.

27.       v7tehkwthrwefgounvi7znf5k New York Jets

Record: 2-5

Last Week: 28

Fitzpatrick took a shot at the front office after his performance last week and now that Geno is out for the season, it looks like management has no other option but to hand the reins back to Ryan. Luckily for them, they have been relying on the run more and Forte is up to carrying the load.

26.       1053 Tennessee Titans

Record: 3-4

Last Week: 23

The Titans were so close to taking the AFC “Giants” downs this week. They haven’t beat the Colts since 2011 and baring any major changes, it looks like they will keep that streak going until 2017. The Titans had a shot at winning the game on the final drive, but a strip-6 ultimately put the game out of reach.

25.       907 New Orleans Saints

Record: 2-4

Last Week: 22

New Orleans has to keep Drew Brees as healthy as possible this year because without him the Saints are lost. Brees has lost a step the past couple of years and rumors of him and Sean Payton leaving the organization have been popping up since the offseason, but having a QB that can throw for 400 yards on a weekly basis is very nice.
