2023 NFL season: Standout performers from Week 7

NFL Week 7 brought some surprises, with four one-win teams picking up their second victories of the season and there were also some clashes between leading teams to enjoy.

There were also some awesome individual performances around the league and we’ve assessed all of the top players from Week 7 and broken them all down below.

Myles Garrett - DE, Cleveland Browns

2 sacks, 9 tackles, 1 blocked kick

Myles Garrett's dominant defensive performance carried the Cleveland Browns to a wild 39-38 win over the Indainapolis Colts.

The defensive end twice stripped the ball from QB Gardner Minshew in sacks, with one of them recovered in the end zone for a touchdown by linebacker Tony Fields.

Garrett's most notable play from the game, however, was an incredible field-goal block when he leapt over the Colts offensive line to stop Matt Gay's 60-yard attempt, which cornerback Denzel Ward was able to return to the Colts' 26-yard line.

Browns kicker Dustin Hopkins also deserves a mention for converting all four of his field goals from 44, 54, 54 and 58 yards.

The Browns (4-2) are +2500 to win the Super Bowl and +270 for the AFC North, while Garrett is +225 to be named the Defensive Player of the Year.

D'Onta Foreman - RB, Chicago Bears

16 carries for 89 yards & 2 rushing TDs, 3 receptions for 31 yards & 1 receiving TD

D'Onta Foreman has stepped up since the Chicago Bears were hit by injuries to running backs Khalil Herbert and Roschon Johnson, and he had a big game on Sunday as his team secured their second win of the season, beating the Las Vegas Raiders 30-12.

Foreman had been inactive from Week 1 until getting the call to start against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6, and he was a key figure in the win over the Raiders.

He scored two rushing touchdowns and another on a pass from undrafted rookie QB Tyson Bagent, who completed 21 of 29 pass attempts and had no interceptions on his first NFL start.

The Bears' odds to have the worst regular-season record have gone out to +800 after that huge win, with the Panthers and Cardinals both at +200.

Mac Jones - QB, New England Patriots

272 passing yards & 2 TDs

The New England Patriots needed QB Mac Jones to come good after their 1-5 start to the season, which had seen them losing all three home games, and he did so to lift his team to a huge 29-25 AFC East win over the Buffalo Bills.

Jones has been under fire this season for his poor play, but was able to provide head coach Bill Belichick with his 300th career regular-season victory by completing 25 of his 30 pass attempts in the game.

The Patriots are still considered longshots to make the playoffs this season at +1425, but they are now +1400 to have the worst-regular season record after improving to 2-5 with their Week 7 upset win.

A.J Brown - WR, Philadelphia Eagles

10 receptions for 137 receiving yards, 1 TD

The Philadelphia Eagles played the Miami Dolphins in what many had considered the best matchup of NFL Week 7 as both teams entered with 5-1 records.

The Eagles were able to emerge at 6-1 after a 31-17 win thanks to another great game from star receiver A.J Brown.

The former Tennessee Titan scored a 14-yard touchdown to give his team the lead near the end of the third quarter. There is a concern for Philadelphia, though, as quarterback Jalen Hurts played the second half wearing a brace on his knee.

The Eagles are +500 third favorites to win Super Bowl LVIII with the Dolphins at +1000. Brown is +2500 odds to win the Offensive Player of the Year award.

Lamar Jackson - QB, Baltimore Ravens

357 passing yards & 3 passing TDs, 36 rushing yards & 1 rushing TD

Lamar Jackson is having a great year for the Baltimore Ravens and the quarterback propelled his team to a dominant 38-6 win over the Detroit Lions, who had headed to Maryland with a 5-1 record.

The Ravens raced into a 35-0 lead as Jackson ran in the first touchdown himself, before throwing two TD passes to tight end Mark Andrews and one to wide receiver Nelson Agholor.

The Ravens are now joint-sixth favorites for the Super Bowl at +1200 and they are +110 favorites to win the AFC North. Jackson has also entered the conversation for the MVP award and is fourth-favorite at +750.

Travis Kelce - TE, Kansas City Chiefs

12 receptions for 179 receiving yards, 1 TD

For the past five seasons, the NFL has officially designated the fourth Sunday in October as National Tight Ends Day, and there was an obvious candidate for this list from that position in Week 7.

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce is getting all the headlines for his relationship with megastar Taylor Swift, but he's impressing everyone on the field and had a huge game in Sunday's 31-17 AFC West win over the Los Angeles Chargers.

Kelce snagged 12 passes from QB Patrick Mahomes for 179 yards, including a 53-yarder and a touchdown.

The Chiefs are +450 second-favorites for the Super Bowl, behind only the +425 San Francisco 49ers, while Kelce is +2800 to be Offensive Player of the Year.
