Week 7 of the National Football League is in the books with the Cleveland Browns still searching for a win.
This is the 7-on-7 drill -- seven lists of seven items to help keep track of the NFL season.
7 BEST TEAMS
1. Patriots (6-1)- Ho-hum, 6-1 after a workmanlike win at Pittsburgh.
2. Cowboys (5-1)- Dez Bryant returns to the lineup, and now the offense needs to figure out how to include him in the fun.
3. Broncos (4-2)- Let's just say they don't regret letting Brock Osweiler walk in free agency.
4. Vikings(5-1)- They turned the ball over just once through five games and then self-destructed with four turnovers Sunday at Philadelphia. This might be true of every team, but the Vikings' low-powered offense isn't one that can overcome turnovers.
3. Bears (1-6)- Remember when Matt Barkley was a college hot shot who decided to return for his senior season instead of being a top-10 pick? Didn't look like a hot shot in relief of Brian Hoyer. Jay Cutler returns this week.
4. Jaguars (2-4)- In the last six seasons they've had one three-game winning streak. Failed to achieve another last weekend.
5. Ravens (3-4)- Every week makes last year's 5-11 finish look less and less like an outlier.
6. Jets (2-5)- Quote of the week, from coach Todd Bowles on mouthy quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick: "If pissed off is going to stop the turnovers, then I'm more than happy to have him pissed off the whole time."
7. Panthers (1-5)- It wouldn't be a shock to see them go on a bit of a run now, after their bye, but nothing we've seen so far suggests they will.
7 INTRIGUING MATCHUPS IN WEEK 7
1. Eagles at Cowboys (8:30 p.m.)- NFC East lead on the line. The Eagles' underrated defense might be enough to slow down the Cowboys' devastating run game.
2. Packers at Falcons (4:25 p.m.)- It's tough to tell if either of these teams are legitimate Super Bowl contenders, but a win here could help their candidacy.
3. Chargers at Broncos (4:05 p.m.)- We just saw this two weeks ago, and it wasn't very entertaining, but it's an even matchup in a compelling division race.
4. Cardinals at Panthers (1 p.m.)- NFC championship rematch was supposed to be so much more. Cardinals have a chance to bury the Panthers.
5. Seahawks at Saints (1 p.m.)- Seahawks allowing NFL-low 14 points per game; Saints allowing NFL-high 32.5. Bet against another 6-6 tie.
4. Mike Evans, WR- Jameis Winston is targeting him 12.5 times per game, and he's the man in the red zone, given his 6-foot-5, 230-pound physique.
5. Brandon Marshall, WR- So, this prediction didn't pan out last week. Time to double down with Marshall facing the Browns.
6. Gary Barnidge, TE- The Browns tight end has been consistently average, and now he gets back his quarterback.
7. Patriots defense- This is the type of game in which the Patriots lay the smackdown on the Bills, especially with LeSean McCoy banged up.
7 SURPRISING STAT LEADERS
1. Lorenzo Alexander, 9 sacks-10th-year journeyman had nine career sacks before this season.
2. Ezekiel Elliott, 703 rushing yards- We knew he'd be good, especially behind that line. But this is a momentous start for a rookie. Only Eric Dickerson has more rushing yards through six games of a career.
3. LeGarrette Blount and Melvin Gordon, 8 rushing TDs- In a league where running backs peak early and then fade, Blount has surpassed all previous TD totals in Year 8. Gordon, meanwhile, is making up for a rookie season in which he was shut out of the end zone.
4. Atlanta Falcons, 32.7 points per game- They clearly have the weapons, but not much had changed personnel-wise from last year, when they finished 21st in the NFL with 21.2 ppg.
5. Green Bay Packers, 71.8 rushing yards allowed per game- Also 21st in the league last year in this category. The improvement this year is in part a function of playing mostly against poor rushing offenses. When they faced the Cowboys, they wilted.
6. Zach Brown, 74 tackles- AnotherBills linebacker, he's three tackles away from matching his 2015 output with the Titans. You know he likes his chicken fried.
7. Adam Vinatieri, 18 field goals and 72 points- OK, it's not really a surprise, but the league's leader in scoring is 43 years old and has made an NFL-record 43 straight field goals.
