Week 7 had its share upsets along with typical blowouts. The only two teams with perfect running seasons are now the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts. The Titans, Rams, and Buccaneers still have yet to win a single game. The Patriots and Bucs competed in Sunday’s headline contest at Wembley Stadium in London. The event proved the NFL’s ability to be recognized highly on an international level with the 85,000+ in attendance. Tonight’s showdown will feature the Philadelphia Eagles (3-2) and the Washington Redskins (2-4) at FedEx Field in Landover, MD. All week 7 scores are listed below.
