Some big time performances this week in the NFL and some major letdowns. See who cracked the list for week 7 winners and losers in the NFL!
·Titans- Back to back wins against the Bills/Chiefs- the 2 teams in the AFC Title game last year. They’re now 5-2 and have a showdown with the Colts on Sunday in a game that will likely decide the AFC South.
·The LV Raiders- 2-0 now under their interim coach, 5-2, and could quite possibly win the AFC West this year, a division that looked like one of the toughest at the start of the season. Derek Carr only had 3 incompletions yesterday.
·Joe Burrow/Ja’Mar Chase- Congrats Cincy, you nailed your last two round 1 picks. This connection is everything we thought it would be and more. Chase is running away with offensive rookie of the year and Burrow is setting himself up to be part of the MVP conversation. Bengals 5-2 and now in the AFC North drivers seat.
·Everyone who passed on Justin Fields. He might end up being the first bust in this year’s group. 184 yards passing and 3 INT’S against one of the most banged up secondaries in the NFL. Loser- A-Rob, who has 1 game with more than 60 receiving yards on the season. (2 catches 16 yards on Sunday)
·Kyle Pitts- Already a top 3 receiving TE in the NFL. Kelce, Waller, Pitts, that’s the list. 7 catches 163 yards. That one hand grab he had – insane.
-Tom Brady- Tossing his 600th TD pass! Insanity. That's 468 more than Pat Mahomes for reference.
·TNF this week- Packers @ Cardinals. The football gods have blessed us with this 6-1 vs 7-0 matchup.
·Patrick Mahomes- Pat has thrown 9 INT’s on the year, tied with rookie QB disaster Zach Wilson and in their game on Sunday – Derrick Henry had more passing TD’s than Mahomes.
·Sam Darnold- He is who we thought he was. This will be his final stop before becoming part of the Andy Dalton back-up QB community.
·49ers- I think they’ve been eliminated from the playoff race…4 losses in a row now for them, just not a very good team all around.
·Dolphins…1-6 without their own 1st round pick. I think that’s the part that bugs me the most.
·My short stint as a Ravens fan. IYKYK.
