As we enter Week 7 we have alot of interesting matchups to anticipate. We once again gained a lot of insight on what to expect going forward.
In Week 6 we saw all the exciting plays and moments the NFL had to offer. As always the NFL doesn’t let us down. Week 7 we have a lot more to look forward to. We have more teams on the bye as follows, the Seattle Seahawks, Pittsburgh Steelers, Oakland Raiders and the Green Bay Packers.
Speaking of the Steelers, they had a riveting, thrilling comeback victory against the Cincinnati Bengals. With less than a minute to go Ben Roethlisberger led his team down the field and dumped off a pass to Antonio Brown that went for 31 yards for the winning score.
We had another barn burner down in Atlanta. Matt Ryan and the Falcons held on to beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 34-29. Ryan threw for 354 passing yards and three touchdowns. Jameis Winston also had a nice game coming back after the bye throwing for 395 passing yards and four touchdowns.
We also saw Melvin Gordon rush for a career-high three touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns who have had a decent season thus far. On Sunday, the Los Angeles Chargers ran away with the game as Tyrell Williams also had a good game scoring twice.
The marquee matchup everyone wanted to see was the Kansas City Chiefs traveling to New England to battle Tom Brady’s Patriots. This matchup didn’t disappoint as the final score was 43-40 with New England coming away with the victory. Patrick Mahomes lit up the stat sheet once again throwing for 352 passing yards and four touchdowns.
Tom Brady as always coming through in the clutch with 340 and one passing touchdown, while adding a two yard diving goal line score. So without further ado let’s dive in and get to the best lineup Week 7 has to offer.
Carson Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles
Carson Wentz has gotten better each and every week since coming back from injury. He dazzled once again on Thursday Night Football against the New York Giants. Wentz threw for 278 passing yards and three touchdowns on 26-of-36 passing. Wentz’s improvement has clearly shown as he has helped give this team an identity going forward. With the loss of Jay Ajayi, Wentz will be called upon more often to carry his team with his arm.
Thus far, Wentz has amassed 1,192 passing yards and eight touchdown passes. He will look to extend his 8:1 touchdown to interception ratio in Week 7 against the Carolina Panthers at home. Carolina comes into the game as the 15th-ranked defense. Cam Newton will look to get his team back on track against the Eagles.
Wentz has averaged 298 passing yards per game, two touchdowns, 27 completions, 39.5 passing attempts and .25 interceptions per game. Wentz will go up against the Panthers 17th-ranked pass defense.
Through five games played the Panthers have allowed 358 total yards, 255.6 passing yards, 102.4 rushing yards and 22.8 total points per game. Wentz and the Eagles offense will look to excite their home crowd with a big home win on Sunday. Alshon Jeffery looks to be fully healthy once again as he has become Wentz’s favorite target.
Prediction: 350 passing yards, 3 touchdowns
