A brief (and late) Week 7 recap, with Week 8 picks attached 

Get hype for Week 8!

 

Quick Hits

Green Bay 26, Chicago 10

Brian Hoyer is on IR; John Fox is done with Jay Cutler, which means it could be the Matt Barkley show in Chicago

NY Giants 17, Los Angeles 10

Another game in London, another sloppy product

Kansas City 27, New Orleans 21

The Chiefs held off a late rally despite a big outing from Drew Brees

Philadelphia 21, Minnesota 10

Sam Bradford (and Carson Wentz) were less than stellar; Vikings handed first loss of the year

Indianapolis 34, Tennessee 26

Andrew Luck has his best statistical performance of the year; outduels Marcus Mariota

Miami 28, Buffalo 25

Jay Ajayi was an animal, becoming the fourth RB to run for 200 yards in back to back weeks

Detroit 20, Washington 17

Josh Norman couldn’t handle Marvin Jones; Detroit comes back with 15 seconds left to win

Cincinnati 31, Cleveland 17

The Browns QB woes continue; Kevin Hogan ran for over 100 yards

Oakland 33, Jacksonville 16

A messy game on both sides of the ball that saw the Raiders come out ahead

NY Jets 24, Baltimore 16

Geno Smith started for one half, tore an ACL, and it’s back to Ryan Fitzpatrick

San Diego 33, Atlanta 30 (OT)

Matt Ryan regressed slightly while San Diego came back (!!) for a change

Tampa Bay 34, San Francisco 17

A hotly attended game ended in the Niners uttering some questionable quotes

New England 27, Pittsburgh 16

Landry Jones looked out of sorts filling in for Ben Roethlisberger while Tom Brady continues to dominate

Seattle 6, Arizona 6 (OT)

Missed field goals in OT plagued both teams and led to the first tie in three years

Denver 27, Houston 9

Brock Osweiler returns to Denver and is beaten by his angry teammates handily
