Top and Flop: who were the best and worst of the seventh week of the season?
TOP 1: AARON DONALD, DT RAMS
Exceptional match for the League's strongest defending against San Francisco, Donald is an unstoppable force that makes the good and bad weather against the OL of the Niners by reporting scary numbers: 8 tackles, 1 assisted tackle, 4 Sacks, a forced Fumble and a recovered Fumble. Incredible as one man can register such statistics.
TOP 2: KAREEM HUNT, RB CHIEFS
Hunt comes out as a clear winner from the hard confrontation with the fearsome Front Seven of Bengals, the Running Back of the Chiefs is invented spectacular plays that help Mahomes to direct the match right away. The Running Back in the second year earns 141 yards and scores 3 Tds, two of them on receipt. Kansas City is not just the arm of Mahomes.
TOP 3: ADAM THIELEN, WR VIKINGS
The pride of Minnesota does not stop, seventh game out of seven with more than 100 yards on reception for Thielen which is confirmed as the most fit Wide Receiver of the season. The WR of the Vikings earn 110 yards by scoring a Touchdown on reception in New York against the Jets. Thielen is writing his name among the big names in the NFL.
FLOP 1: EZEKIEL ELLIOTT, RB COWBOYS
Elliott runs into one of the worst days of his career against the solid defense of the Redskins, the very strong Running Back of Dallas runs for only 33 yards in a match fought until the last. In games like this, having a solid Running Game is fundamental, when in Backfield you can count on a phenomenon like Elliott, a day is not ever justifiable.
FLOP 2: KHALIL MACK, LB BEARS
After a very high level start Mack goes off against the Patriots, the Bears Linebacker never affects the match, coming only once to tackle, but above all he will never be able to worry Brady. If Chicago wants to become a contender it needs the best Mack even in important Matches like last Sunday.
FLOP 3: BLAKE BORTLES, QB JAGUARS
Second consecutive Sunday among the rejected for Blake Bortles, who in addition to leading the Jaguars to a bloody internal defeat against the rivals of the Texans is likely to lose the starting position in favor of Kessler. Returning to the field, the former third overall choice launches for only 61 yards and loses two Fumbles, one on the first possession of the match and the other at the beginning third quarter with the score on 13 to 0.
