What We Learned In Week 7 Of The 2018 NFL Season
Week Seven of was another exciting week of football and we learned a lot about the NFL again this past weekend. Let’s break down the biggest things that we learned in week 7 of the 2018 nfl season.
Jerry Jones loves making rash decisions
Jerry Jones has never been afraid to make big moves and even though they don’t always work out you can’t fault him for lack of effort. The Dallas Cowboys didn’t have a star wide receiver until Jones pulled the trigger and traded a first-round pick to the Oakland Raiders for Amari Cooper.
Rumblings are that the Cowboys really didn’t have much competition trying to get Cooper’s service, but Jones still paid up big. Jones has traded first round picks for receivers twice before getting Joey Galloway and Roy Williams but neither of those seemed to work out.
No one can slow down the Chiefs offense
Don’t tell the Kansas City Chiefs about the old defense win’s championships saying because they are trying to rewrite history.
Patrick Mahomes has been unbelievable leading the Chiefs to average 37.1 points per game. The offense is really clicking and it doesn’t seem to matter who the Chiefs turn to, someone is always making the big play. The defense still isn’t great but if they can make key stops in games, this team is a legit Super Bowl contender, even if they have to win that game 47-40.
Adam Thielen is still the real deal
Adam Thielen had his seventh straight game with 100 yards receiving in week seven and if he does it again in week eight he will tie the all-time NFL record.
This guy has proven week in and week out this season that he is one of the best wideouts in the game.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are in trouble
Blake Bortles was benched in Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans and although he will get the start this Sunday his leash is very short.
The Jaguars defense last year made up for a lot of the shortcomings that he presented but with the defense not being as lights out they are all coming to the surface.
One yard can make the world of difference
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky threw a Hail Mary deep as time expired trying to convert the game-tying touchdown.
Kevin White came down with the ball….at the one yard line and the game ended. The Bears were only one yard away from being 4-2 and sitting in first place in the NFC North. Instead, they are 3-3 and if the season ended today, they would be in last place in the NFC North.
The most surprising thing to come out of week seven has to be Justin Tucker missing an extra point. Tucker had been 222 for 222 in his NFL career on extra points and if he could make it 223 in a row the Ravens would be heading to overtime against the Saints.
Tucker missed the field goal and the Ravens lost. Tucker said he wasn’t quite sure why the kick missed but it sure appeared the wind played a big part in it.
