Week 7 will likely be one of those weeks that many teams will look back on as the week that changed their season. That will be the case for the Chicago Bears as their season was altered after their game against the Washington Redskins.
- Washington Redskins 45, Chicago Bears 41-Beyond the loss to the Redskins on Sunday, the Bears lost starting quarterback Jay Cutler and linebacker Lance Briggs for an extended period of time. The Bears defense struggled on Sunday in providing any sort of friction to the Redskins smooth sailing offense.
- Green Bay Packers 31, Cleveland Browns 13-The Packers are regaining their old form. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers tossed three touchdown passes while running back Eddie Lacy rushed for 82 yards with a touchdown of his own. The Packers defense was once again stout, though, they were facing a Browns offense that was led by quarterback Brandon Weeden.
- Cincinnati Bengals 27, Detroit Lions 24-Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford tossed three touchdown passes including one that might have been the highlight of the year on a touchdown pass to wide receiver Calvin Johnson. Despite the three touchdown performance by Stafford, the Lions defense struggled in containing the Bengals offense as Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton passed for over 370 passing yards to go along with three touchdown passes.
- New York Giants 23, Minnesota Vikings 7-Ugly.
- Green Bay Packers (4-2)
- Detroit Lions (4-3)
- Chicago Bears (4-3)
- Minnesota Vikings (1-5)
- The Green Bay Packers may be in the position that they will be in for the remainder of the season. For the Bears, their next three games are perhaps the team’s most important three games remaining on the season. The Bears next three opponents are the Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions, and Baltimore Ravens. The expectation is that the Bears will be without Cutler and certainly without Briggs. Safe to say that the Bears season may buried within the next month. Meanwhile, the Lions are facing an uphill climb after already having lost to the Packers this season.
