Week Seven of the 2022 NFL season continued to provide close games and upsets. There was both Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady losing, the rematch of Super Bowl LIV, and much more! NFL analysts Marissa Myers, Logan Fulmer, Matt Levine, Isaac Nelson, and Andrew Little provide the top five games of Week Seven. 

Los Angeles Chargers @ Seattle Seahawks 

This game was confusing to a lot of people coming in. The Chargers had high expectations while the Seahawks did not, and the roles seemed to be switched early into the year. Right from the opening kick off this game it was alllll Seattle. The Seahawks opened the game with a 17-0 run. Once they got the lead it was easy to keep considering the Chargers have a horrible run defense. This was evident as rookie Kenneth Walker ran for 168 yards and two touchdowns. Another story of this game was injuries. Seattle lost DK Metcalf early after he was carted off with a knee injury, but there’s some optimism around it. Unfortunately, things don’t look so positive for the chargers as J.C. Jackson suffered a “significant” knee injury. The list doesn’t stop there, as Mike Williams also left the game early and his status is still in question as well. This game leaves Seattle fans with legitimate hope, while Chargers fans begin to question their season. (Logan)

 

Kansas City Chiefs @ San Francisco 49ers 

In a rematch of the Super Bowl from a few years ago, the Kansas City Chiefs came out victorious over the San Francisco 49ers once again. The 49ers jumped out to an early lead, but Kansas City fought back en route to a 44-23 victory. It was an impressive showing for the Chiefs against a San Francisco defense that is one of the best in the NFL. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw for over 400 yards and three touchdowns in the win. Kansas City is now 5-2 while San Francisco sits at 3-4 on the season. (Matt)

Houston Texans @ Las Vegas Raiders

It looked as if the Houston Texans were going to be able to pull off the victory over the Las Vegas Raiders as they had a 20-17 lead in the third quarter. That was until the Raiders unleashed Josh Jacobs. On three consecutive drives Jacobs would score touchdowns, and finished the day with 143 yards, averaging 7.2 yards per carry. It was also the run game that continued to shine for the Texans despite the loss, as Dameon Pierce had 92 yards on 20 carries, with 61 yards coming after contact. Davis Mills even had a decent day, completing 28-of-41 passes for 302 yards and two touchdowns despite the offensive line allowing 16 pressures. It was the Raiders defense though that completely sealed the game when it mattered most, as Duron Harmon came up with a pick-six that went for 73 yards with 3:26 left in the game. It was a great game filled with plenty of action on offense and defense from both sides, but ultimately the Raiders were able to get the huge play to turn the game in their favor. (Marissa)

 

Cleveland Browns @ Baltimore Ravens 

The Ravens were able to hold on to a lead in a close game against the Cleveland Browns in Baltimore. Cleveland took an early lead by scoring on their first possession courtesy of Nick Chubb. After sharing a couple of field goals, the Browns’ offense really started to stall. The Ravens defense stopped them from scoring until the second half. The Ravens got another field goal from Justin Tucker, and then Gus Edwards capped off a scoring drive for Baltimore. With the lead, the Ravens defense stepped up again when they got a takeaway at the start of the second half. Gus Edwards was able to score off it again to give them a double-digit lead. But the Ravens have struggled to hold on to these kinds of leads this year, and this game looked similar. Each team snagged a field goal before the second back of the Browns running back group in Kareem Hunt scored a touchdown. The drama ensued as a Ravens fumble gave Cleveland the ball back down three. A strong effort from the Ravens defense and with the help of some penalties, the Browns were forced into trying for a long field goal. The Ravens were able to block the kick by Cade York, and buy themselves enough time to punt the ball and stop the Browns from pulling off any miracle. The Ravens won it 23-20 in Baltimore against the Browns. (Isaac)

 

New York Giants @ Jacksonville Jaguars 

The New York Giants just continue to find ways to win football games. Their sixth win of the season came down to one-yard, as Giant defenders halted Christian Kirk’s attempt to cross the goal line as time expired. Jacksonville and New York traded scores throughout the game, but a late surge from the Giants gave them the 23-17 victory. Both offenses were led by their running backs, as Saquon Barkley and Travis Etienne each rushed for over 100 yards. Etienne scored his first career touchdown, and his breakout game signals a large workload for the rest of the season. Jacksonville falls to 2-5 on the season and 0-5 in one score games. New York improves to 6-1 and second place in the NFC. It’s tough to call the G-Men serious contenders still, but this win is another step towards the playoffs and a testament to Brian Daboll’s coaching. (Andrew)
