As I wrap up my week long visits of College football evaluations, making stops at Central Michigan, Michigan State, Michigan and Thursday at Ohio State, I now turn my focus towards the NFL and Week 7.
A lot of exciting things going on in the NFL, Seattle trades WR/Toy Percy Harvin to the New York Jets. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones lawsuit of sexual assault was dismissed. Broncos QB Peyton Manning is two touchdowns away from matching or surpassing Brett Favre for another NFL record and Colts owner Jim Irsay is happy to be back in the building, saying it was tough staying away.
When looking at this week’s match ups, there are a few key games I will pay close attention too; The Carolina Panthers coming off a tie with the Cincinnati Bengals travel to the house that Lombardi built to face the Green Packers. Some say the ghost of Ray Nitschke and other Packer greats still roam the sidelines, good luck Panthers!
The St. Louis Rams take on another divisional foe in the Seattle Seahawks at home on a short week. The Seahawks performance last week against the Cowboys was miserable for the 12th Man to watch, this week will be a different outcome for the World Champions.
Cincinnati QB Andy Dalton and Bengals walk into a true trap game which should be a high scoring event, with Andrew Luck and the Colts in Lucas Oil Stadium. The Bengals have the better defense but the Colts have some Luck on their side. Two AFC West teams square off with Kansas City traveling out West to face the red hot San Diego Chargers, this may be the game of the week.
