Hello sports fans! Welcome to Week 7 of the NFL season.
We start this recap with a victory no one saw coming, unless you’re a Dallas fan. The Cowboys came to Seattle and shocked the Seahawks 30-23. It’s a huge win, as now everyone’s taking America’s Team serious once again. They can continue their run against the struggling New York Giants, who lost Victor Cruz for the season with a torn patella tendon in his right knee.
Fans also witnessed plenty of surprising developments. The Cleveland Browns defended their home turf beating the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-10. Joe Flacco’s five touchdowns helped the Baltimore Ravens dominate the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 48-17. The San Francisco 49ers mounted a Monday night comeback against the St. Louis Rams 31-17.
That was also the same score for the Denver Broncos’ win over the New York Jets, despite a subpar Peyton Manning. Yet, a subpar Peyton is still efficient enough for any NFL team. He threw three touchdowns and threw for 237 yards.
I went 11-4 for Week 6, bringing my total to 57-34. The following is what I got right and wrong.
