NFL Week 7 is highlighted by the most hyped and anticipated game of the 2017 season. The Atlanta Falcons travel to Foxborough for only the second time this millennium, in a rematch of the greatest Super Bowl in NFL history. The Patriots lead the all-time series 8-6 and are 5-0 in the Belichick-Brady era.
Week 7 is highlighted by a rematch of what was possibly the greatest championship game in pro sports history. The Atlanta Falcons will travel to Foxborough to take on the New England Patriots a week from Sunday night. The professional handicappers at the Westgate have listed the defending champs as four point favorites for the moment.
Pittsburgh Dad (the western PA version of FitzyGFY) reacts to Steelers’ home loss to Patriots.
Soon after the New England Patriots defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers, it was time for another edition of the TB Times to be published. Tom Brady – or perhaps an executive assistant – roasted Steeler Nation on his Facebook page after handing Pittsburgh their third loss of season.
5-1 New England will travel to Pittsburgh to face the 4-2 Steelers at Heinz Field in the marquee game of NFL Week 7. The Patriots are favored by 7.
The New England Patriots will take part in what will be the NFL’s biggest game next Sunday as the Pittsburgh Steelers host the Pats. The highly anticipated contest lost a bit of its luster with Ben Roethlisberger suffering an unfortunate knee injury. Big Ben will be out for a few weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee suffered in Sunday’s upset loss at Miami. The outcome of this game could go a long ways to determining who has home field advantage in the AFC playoffs next January.
The game kicks off at 4:25 pm eastern time Sunday. CBS will broadcast the game on every one of their affiliates in the United States with the exception (thanks to archaic NFL/FCC rules) of Atlanta and San Francisco. Jim Nantz will announce the play-by-play with Phil Simms will handling the commentary.
Week 7 features a highly anticipated game between two of the NFL’s best teams. The New England Patriots travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers in a battle for supremacy in the AFC. Although the game is being played at Heinz Field, some Vegas handicappers have determined that the Patriots are a formidable enough team to negate the hometown advantage at Heinz Field.
Week 7 brings NFL fans one great game – the Jets at Patriots pits the league’s best defense versus the NFL’s best offense – and besides that a whole lot of mediocrity. Unfortunately for football fans this early game is the one and only matchup between two teams with winning records. Some of that can be attributed to three unbeaten teams – Cincinnati, Denver and Green Bay – all having a bye this week. Beyond that though, the NFL’s never-ending quest for parity has exposed an ugly under belly as a side effect. Only nine of the 32 NFL teams have winning records and two entire divisions do not have a single winning team.
Looking at these numbers I was a bit surprised – as I am sure many others will be – at how often the Jets ranked relatively high (top ten in the NFL) in offensive categories. It is also really amazing to see how the New England offense and Jet defense both rank number one, or number one and two in one statistical category after another.
NFL week seven gets underway tonight with an all-NFC West game, as the Seattle Seahawks travel to Santa Clara to play the San Francisco 49ers. Game kicks off at 8:25 pm eastern time and is televised on CBS. Seattle is favored by 6½ points.
Even though the Patriots are on CBS, displaced New England fans should be happy to hear that the Pats-Jets game will still receive extensive broadcast distribution throughout the United States. Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts will be the announcers on CBS between these two original AFL rivals, as they meet for the 113ᵗʰ time; the Patriots lead the all-time series 58-54-1.
