With just one game left to be played, Week 7 in the NFL has almost wrapped up. It was another wild one, with a number of upsets, some close games, and some engaging quarterback battles. Let’s take a look at Week 7 so far, and look ahead to Week 8.
On Thursday night, the 49ers defeated the Seahawks, 13-6. The Niners were 7 point favorites, winning by 7. They bounced back from that embarrassing loss to the Giants, but showed little dominance over the Hawks. The Vikings improved their record to 5-2 with a defeat of the Cardinals, 21-14. Minnesota was a 6 point home favorite, barely covering by 1 point. The Cardinals leaped out to a 4-0 record as the season started, and are now 0-3 since then.

RG3 and the Skins took on Eli Manning and the defending champion Giants. The result was a 27-23 Giants victory, and 4 Redskins turnovers. The Giants were 5 ½ point home favorites, barely missing covering the spread. The only real blowout of the week came from the Texans 43-13 win over the Ravens. This game was all Houston, and they were up 29-3 by halftime. They were 6 ½ point favorites at home, easily winning and covering.
One big game that everyone was watching was the Jets-Patriots. The Jets gave this one away, allowing the Pats a last-second field goal to tie, and giving up another in overtime. The 29-26 victory went to New England. In that one, the Patriots were 10 ½ point home favorites, failing to cover but at least escaping with a victory.
In Sunday’s late game, the Steelers took on the Bengals in Cincinnati. Pitt won 24-17 and dominated on offense. The Steelers were 1 point road favorites, covering the spread, while racking up twice as many offensive yards as the Bengals. Check the NFL Odds for NFL Week 8 Games.
