Previewing Week 7 via BleacherReport.com
It’s already been a good start to what promises to be an important week in the NFL.
Despite the facts that six teams, including NFC South leader Atlanta and AFC West co-leaders Denver and San Diego, have the week off, nearly half the slate include these very important divisional matchups.
In fact, it’s also a week in which six of the 13 games feature head-to-head battles between opponents with identical win-loss records.
That aforementioned good start occurred Thursday night in San Francisco, where Jim Harbaugh’s 49ers outslugged the visiting Seahawks, 13-6, as both teams got big efforts from their ground attacks and as it turned out, the Niners got a slightly bigger performance from its defensive unit.
As we approach the halfway point to the season, and this is hardly breaking news, holding serve at home against your division rivals is very important. And unfortunately for Seattle, they have seen the Cardinals, Rams and 49ers achieve that feat in all three meetings this season.
Fortunately, Carroll’s club still gets to play all three of those teams at home.
And fortunately for us, there are still five more divisional head knockers to come in Week 7…
