Week 7 Eliminator best bets
Projecting the safest selections for Eliminator pools in Week 7 and beyond
- Derick E. Hingle/USA TODAY SportsCan Matt Ryan, Tony Gonzalez and the Falcons get back on track without Julio Jones?
In August, if someone told you that one of the two remaining undefeated teams come Week 7 would be the Kansas City Chiefs, and that the New York Giants would be 0-6, would you have believed them? It's highly unlikely you would have, but with six weeks in the books, the Chiefs and the Denver Broncos are last of the undefeateds and the Giants are winless.
From the miraculous to the mediocre, the Houston Texans continue to stumble. In the midst of Matt Schaub's pick-six streak, the Virginia product was injured while the Texans were down big to the St. Louis Rams. Backup T.J. Yates entered the game to applause, and proceeded to throw two interceptions of his own, one of which was returned to the house. There must be something in the quarterbacks' water down in Houston.
