The NFL continued to be unpredictable in Week 7 as fans were once again left questioning everything they believed about some teams.
The recently struggling Baltimore Ravens went into Seattle and shutdown Russell Wilson and the Seahawks, the Detroit Lions got whooped at home by the Minnesota Vikings and the Indianapolis Colts shocked the Houston Texans in an ultimately comfortable win.
Among the games were a number of standout performances, so who will make the Madden Ultimate Team Week 7 Team of the Week?
Rodgers, Green Bay Packers (LTD) – 93 OVR
Aaron Rodgers may already have a 90+ rated
card, but his performance definitely warrants the LTD TOTW card.
Against the Oakland Raiders he passed for
429 yards with five touchdowns and a perfect passer rating, and he added a
touchdown rushing as well. He had a monster game as the Green Bay Packers
dominated the Raiders at Lambeau Field.
Jones Jr., Detroit Lions (HERO) – 91 OVR
Marvin Jones Jr.’s Lions may have been handily beaten at home by the Minnesota Vikings, but Jones still balled out. The Lions receiver had ten catches for just 93 yards, but he turned four of those catches into touchdowns, including a flashy run after the catch to find the end zone. It presents a nice upgrade to his 86 OVR Flashbacks card.
Fowler Jr., Los Angeles Rams (HERO) – 91 OVR
If not for Chandler Jones having a 91 OVR
Signature Series card, this would be him. However, Fowler Jr. was not too far
off his pace.
In the LA Rams’ blowout of the beleaguered Atlanta
Falcons, the defensive end/outside linebacker contributed three sacks, six
total tackles and a forced fumble. He had his way with the Falcons offensive
line and deserves a great card as a result.
Edmonds, Arizona Cardinals – 87 OVR
The Cardinals stormed into a rainy Met Life
Stadium and knocked off the New York Giants for their third straight win, and
they did so on the back of Edmonds.
With David Johnson getting injured it was Edmonds’ game, and he took advantage of it. He ran for 126 yards and three touchdowns and pounded the Giants into the ground. He has a 79 OVR TOTW 5 card, but this performance deserves another.
Bosa, San Francisco 49ers – 86 OVR
The 49ers win over the Washington Redskins was one of the craziest games of the weekend thanks to nothing but the weather. Playing in what was virtually a paddling pool, Nick Bosa continued his string of strong performances with seven tackles, four of which were for a loss, and a sack. He is on pace to challenge for Rookie of the Year and he deserves a better card than his 76 OVR Core Gold.
Murray, New Orleans Saints – 85 OVR
With Alvin Kamara out of the game against the Chicago Bears, Murray was left to power the Saints offense, and boy, did he. Murray carried the ball 27 times for 119 yards and two touchdowns. Considering his only card is his 77 OVR Core Gold, this upgrade was due and will come this week.
Bell, New Orleans Saints – 84 OVR
Just one of the several Ohio State secondary
players on the Saints’ roster and he was a star this week. The New Orleans
Saints dominated the Chicago Bears offense as Von Bell led the team from the safety
position. He offered eight tackles along with a forced fumble and a fumble
Brissett, Indianapolis Colts – 83 OVR
Another QB, but another worthy performance. The Colts starter was a huge reason his team were able to take sole ownership of the AFC South as he passed for 326 yards and four touchdowns. The Texans didn’t have an answer for him and now he’ll have an upgrade on his 77 OVR Most Feared card.
Okafor, Kansas City Chiefs – 82 OVR
The Kansas City Chiefs bullied the Denver
Broncos on Thursday Night Football and Okafor was a big reason why. The defensive
end had two sacks, three QB hits, four tackles and a forced fumble. He was a
machine and the Broncos had no answer for him as he consistently wrecked their
