NFL Week 7 review: Eagles down Dolphins on SNF, Pats shock Bills

Last year's Super Bowl participants each secured impressive victories on Sunday as the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles improved their records to 6-1 for the season.

The Philadelphia Eagles returned to winning ways in style in Week 7, as they outclassed the Miami Dolphins to win 31-17.

Andy Reid's team secured a vital victory over AFC West rivals the Los Angeles Chargers, and they also won 31-17 to take control of their division.

Week 7 produced more shocks across the NFL, and several teams saw their playoff hopes harmed after surprise defeats.

Eagles lay down a marker on home soil

The Miami Dolphins have been in the headlines all season, but they were brought back down to earth this week.

Mike McDaniel's team are now +1000 to win the NFL Championship after a disappointing display on the road. Tua Tagovailoa has been in impressive form all season, but he failed to get his team over the line, while former Alabama college team-mate Jalen Hurts did enough.

Hurts threw three interceptions in the win, but his connection with AJ Brown got the Eagles rolling, with the former Tennessee Titans receiver catching the ball 10 times for 137 yards. The Eagles are now +650 to win the NFL Championship, as they look to reach the finale for the second year in a row.

Kelce steals the headlines

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce continues to live his life under the spotlight, but Sunday's news bulletins were all about him for a change.

The Chiefs star has had to battle injuries throughout the first few weeks, but he was at his very best as the Chiefs outmuscled the Chargers.

Kelce, now 34, seems to be getting better with age, and he caught 12 passes for 179 yards. In the last three weeks, he has 31 catches for 370 yards and two touchdowns.

Patrick Mahomes was able to play with freedom thanks to the Chiefs' run game, and the Chiefs are quietly going about their business.

Since losing to the Detroit Lions, the Chiefs have won six matches in a row, and they are now +450 to win this year's title.

Belichick makes history after shock win

The New England Patriots have endured a season to forget so far, but they give their fans a rare moment of joy after picking up a surprise win over the Buffalo Bills.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick won his 300th career game to enter the record books, and only Don Shula (328) and George Halas (318) have won more matches.

Buffalo looked to have done enough, but Mac Jones found Mike Gesicki with 12 seconds left to secure a 29-25 victory.

While the result means little in the AFC East standings, it was a good week for the New York Jets, who saw their main rivals lose.

Ravens make light work of Detroit

The Week 7 matchup between the Detroit Lions and the Baltimore Ravens was expected to be one of the closest of the weekend, but it turned out to be anything but, thanks to Lamar Jackson and Mark Andrews.

Jackson threw for 357 yards and three touchdowns, picking out Andrews on two occasions. The Lions never got going and were down 28-0 at half-time before losing 38-6 on the road.

Baltimore are now 5-2 for the season, and it comes as a surprise to see them as high as +1200 in the race for the NFL Championship.

While the Ravens are leading the way in the AFC North, they have both the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns on their tail.

The Steelers returned from their bye week to win 24-17, while the Browns won a thriller against the Indianapolis Colts, winning 39-38 on their travels.

One of the shock results of the weekend took place at Soldier Field in Chicago, as the Bears beat the Las Vegas Raiders 30-12. Rookie quarterback Tyson Bagent threw for 162 yards to help his team improve their record to 2-5.

The New York Giants won a close game against NFC East rivals, the Washington Commanders, as they won 14-7, while the Atlanta Falcons beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 16-13.

Geno Smith and the Seattle Seahawks did enough to hold off the Arizona Cardinals with their 20-10 win, while the Denver Broncos' season continues to disappoint after their 19-17 defeat to the Green Bay Packers.
