NFL Schedule Week 7: What to watch for


We are now into the seventh week of the NFL season and there are some good games to watch this weekend. One of those games is the New England Patriots on the road against the New York Jets.

New England will have Tight end Rob Gronkowski available to play after he missed the first six games of the season. This should help the Patriots’ out on offense and it will be interesting how they use him in the game.

Another game that looks good is the the Denver Broncos facing the Indianapolis Colts. This will be Peyton Manning‘s first game back in Indianapolis since the Broncos signed the veteran QB before the 2012 season.

There is some added intrigue in this game with Denver being one of two undefeated teams left and the comments made recently by Colts owner Jim Irsay about Peyton and his departure from Indianapolis.

The other game that figures to be good is San Francisco 49ers taking on the Tennessee Titans. These two teams each have a great defense and points will not be easy to come by.

One match up to look for is can Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy continue being effective in running the football against a good Cleveland Browns defense.

Cleveland is only giving up 98.2 rush yards per game this season. Lacy has a total of 219 rushing yards in his last two games.

The next match up is can Case Keenum give the Houston Texans something they have not had much of this season.

They will looking for some good play from their Quarterback with Matt Schaub not playing due to an ankle injury. Keenum will have his hands full against a Kansas City Chiefs team that is just giving up 10.8 points per game and 190 pass yards a game.

The other match up is will Eli Manning be able to stop the New York Giants slide and play well against a bad Minnesota Vikings squad.

The Vikings are giving up 31.6 points per game and 418 total yards on offense. This is a game that New York should be able to win.

The top performers begin with Philadelphia Phillies running back LeSean McCoy having a big game against the Dallas Cowboys with 175 total yards on offense and scoring two TDs.

The next top performer will be Jacksonville Jaguars Justin Blackmon catching eight passes for 130 yards with one touchdown. The San Diego Chargers have not defended the pass well where they have allowed 272.8 pass yards a game.

The other player that will have a good game is Broncos receiver Eric Decker with him catching nine passes for 105 yards.

    I still don’t understand why the Broncos don’t cut Billy Van Husen. Bucky Di,ts is just better, plain and simple.
