Week 7 and NFL happenings

Happy Sunday everyone!
We are now coming up on week 7. Here are the games to watch for the weekend and what's going on around the league.

Morning games:
Atlanta Falcons @ Detroit Lions (1pm ET, FOX)
These are two exciting offensive teams and Detroit is coming off its first loss of the season last week to the San Francisco 49ers. Should be a great game.

Tim Tebow
Denver Broncos @ Miami Dolphins (1pm ET, CBS)
All eyes will be on Broncos QB Tim Tebow as he makes his first start against Miami who hasn't won a game yet.

San Diego Chargers @ NY Jets (1pm ET, CBS)
Rex Ryan
Norv Turner
Head coaches Norv Turner and Rex Ryan have been talking smack to each other all over the media this week. Let's see who can walk the walk.

Chicago Bears @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1pm ET, FOX)
These are two tough "smashmouth" teams and the game will be played in London, England. The NFL usually hosts one game per season across the pond.

Afternoon games:
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Arizona Cardinals (4:05pm ET, CBS)
This will be a replay of the Superbowl three years ago when the Steelers won. Can the Cards come back to win the rematch?

Carson Palmer
Kansas City Chiefs @ Oakland Raiders (4:05pm ET, CBS)
Last week the Raiders lost their starting QB to injury and traded a bunch of draft picks for Carson Palmer, formerly of the Bengals. They gave up a lot for him so eventually, he will be scrutinized. This week, however, he probably won't play since he just joined the team a couple of days ago.

Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota (4:15pm ET, FOX)
Aaron Rodgers
Aaron Rodgers and his Packers should destroy the Minnesota defense. Donovan McNabb (who got traded from the Washington Redskins) got benched this week after a terrible play last week.

Night game:
Indianapolis Colts @ New Orleans Saints (8:20pm ET, NBC)
This game is also a replay of a Superbowl game from two years ago although it will probably prove much less exciting without Peyton Manning.

Monday night game:
Baltimore Ravens @ Jacksonville Jaguars (8:30pm ET, ESPN)
Baltimore should crush the Jaguars but you never know.

Other news:
Jerome Harrison
Jerome Harrison of the Detroit Lions was going to be traded to the Eagles, went in for his routine physical and doctors found a brain tumor. If he hadn't been about to be traded, he wouldn't have gotten the physical. Without the physical, doctors wouldn't have found the tumor. In this case, it probably saved his life! Read more about it here.

Until next time!
