The seven sins of NFL week seven:

With Halloween coming up and the seventh week of games in the books, the theme of “the seven (deadly) sins” came to mind for me and I decided to take a closer look at the most recent slate of games through that lense. That way I would seven terms to describe how certain teams hurt themselves by committing those errors.

Analyzing the six biggest matchups from NFL week six:

Having already done a couple of big topics in video format, with the Bengals early-season struggles on offense and the Giants now 5-1 start, powered by Saquon Barkley, along with power rankings at the quarter-pole of the season, I thought this was the right time to kind of let readers into my world of tape study and really dive into the six biggest games from this past weekend. All teams involved in these matchups are now .500 or better, including some risers and what were labelled as championship contenders heading into the season, now at somewhat of a crossroads a month-and-a-half into the year.

Obviously, there would more things to point out here, but for the purpose of this exercise, I chose the ones that were most apparent to me.

This is what I took away:

NFL week 17 recap:

All 256 regular season games are now in the books and we’ve recapped every single one of them on this channel. In week 17 we saw which double-digit win team would be left out of the AFC playoffs and which sub-.500 team would win the NFC East, plus another 8-8 team that sneaked in despite a loss. It was the return of the old-school run game, with Derrick Henry reaching 2000 rushing yards on the season, Jonathan Taylor going off for an NFL season-high 253 yards and the Ravens being only the second team in the Super Bowl era to rush for over 400 in a game.
