Week Seven finally saw Carolina win a game, and a number of teams fought out close encounters furtheremphasising the open nature of the conferences this season. Eight games were settled by less than a TD and Pittsburgh and Tampa both squeaked home by a single point with come from behind wins.
Result of the night has to go to Oakland who somehow managed to put up 59 points in Denver, a new franchise record. Amazingly there was no scoring in the 4th quarter but I would guess both sides had had enough by the end of the third.
Other less spectacular if no less important wins were recorded by New England and The New York Giants, and the losers Dallas and San Diego are now in a bit of trouble as far as their post season expectations are concerned. Dallas in particular with Tony Romo out for several weeks and languishing at 1-5 in the ultra tough NFC East will now need a minor miracle to reach the playoffs, however with 4 divisional games still to come they will still play on in hope.
Anyway we finished a disapointing 7-7 prediction wise last week and have slumped to 64-40 on the season so far.
