NFL Week 7: Cardinals Still Unbeaten, Blowout City Around The League

Jonathan Grant | October 25th, 2021

Week 7 of the NFL season is in the books, and with it came a rather interesting set of results. We’ll start in Glendale with the Arizona Cardinals. They, like many other teams this particular week, made things look easy, rolling past the Houston Texans 31-5 to remain unbeaten through seven games. Kyler Murray was 20-28 for 261 yards and three touchdowns. It had been a slow first quarter or so, with the visitors leading, but the Cardinals asserted their dominance the rest of the day and pulled away. Another team that showed their dominance was the New England Patriots as they defeated the New York Jets to move to 3-4 on the season.

Arizona Cardinals

There is still a ways to go for the Pats to return to the best in the AFC East, but this reminded you of old times as Matt Jones threw for over 300 yards and two TD’s and running back Damien Harris rushed for 106 and two TD’s of his own in a 54-13 landslide. The Tennessee Titans also showed an ability to make a massive statement as they dismantled the Kansas City Chiefs 27-3 in Nashville. Derrick Henry didn’t record 100 yards rushing and didn’t have a TD on the ground, but he did have a passing TD and the Titans defense forced three turnovers of the formerly vaunted offense of the Chiefs. Pat Mahomes, to make matters worse for Kansas City, left the game early and did not return despite passing the concussion protocols. The Titans are now 5-2 while the Chiefs fell to 3-4. Elsewhere, the Green Bay Packers improved to 6-1 with a 24-10 over Washington. Aaron Rodgers had three TD tosses and 274 yards in a typically solid game. The Bengals, behind a mammoth 416-yard game from Joe Burrow, that also included three touchdowns, grabbed a big win by beating the Baltimore Ravens 41-17. Both teams are now 5-2 following the result in a tight AFC North battle.
