And then there was one… by the end of week 7 we were left with just one undefeated team, the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Titans’ Gostkowski missed a last ditch game tying field goal and couldn’t prevent the Steelers moving to 6-0.
The Falcons deserve another shout out for yet another laughable finish, this time Gurley flopping down over the line when trying ‘not’ to score! He goes in to the end zone and lets the Lions get the ball back and what followed is standard for all ATL fans by now – another defeat from the jaws of victory.
Washington scalped the Cowboys and the Chiefs destroyed the Broncos despite not playing that well but the Bears and, obviously, the Jets lost.
More major injuries this week as 2020 continues its cruel cull. Odell Beckham and Dede Westbrook tore ACLs and Landon Collins heads to IR requiring Achilles surgery. Kenyan Drake and Jeff Wilson suffered high ankle sprains and you have to feel particularly bad for Wilson given the breakout game he was having.
Antonio Brown is now officially a Buccaneer and another pro-bowl WR is back around the NFL, Dez Bryant was signed to the Ravens’ practice squad. I think everyone will be getting the popcorn ready for the return of AB, let’s hope it’s his on field antics we get to enjoy rather than the off-field circus!

Week 7 Fantasy Football Results
Rob maintains his lead at the top, beating Tom to go 6-1. We very nearly had our first 200-burger with Generic-Fantasy-Name winning with 199.12! So close. Mark lost again and remains rooted to the foot of the table but Tony continues his winning streak and finds himself with a winning record.
If you open a William Hill account using any of our links you’ll be supporting the site and the podcast but more importantly, if you’re a new player you can get the William Hill 2 x £15 free bets for a £10er. Don’t be a divvy though, betting is supposed to be fun, if you can’t laugh about losing what you’ve bet, you’re taking it too seriously and have probably bet too much, take it easy!
We’re a week away from the halfway point of the season now and things are getting interesting… not so much in the league but with Rob trying to fight the podcast fans!
