It’s hard to believe that we’re already approaching the midpoint of the 2014 NFL campaign.
All good things must come to an end, I suppose.
Here are three games that you won’t want to miss in week 7:
1- Bengals @ Colts – These are two teams in opposite trajectories. Indy started out the season slow (0-2) and then caught on fire (four straight wins). Cincinnati, on the other hand, won their first three before getting blown out by New England and tying the Carolina Panthers.
The Bengals’ strength is their defense, but nobody’s having much luck at slowing down the Colts’ offense. It may be hard for Cincy to win in a shootout without their top offensive weapon.

2- 49ers @ Broncos – San Francisco has won three straight and is hot on the heels of the Arizona Cardinals for first place in the NFC West, but Denver’s on a mini win streak of their own and it’s always tough to win at Mile High Stadium.
Peyton will be looking to break one of all-time most sought after NFL records against a Niners defense that is finally starting to gel.

3- Browns @ Jaguars – This game is one for those who love to root for the underdog. If the Jags come out on top they’ll have earned their first win of the season, but if the Browns win, Cleveland will be 4-2 for the first time since neon green spandex was still in fashion (this statistic has not been verified and we’re not entirely sure spandex was ever in style).
I like this Cleveland story. They’re a club that have been getting the short end of the stick for far too long…but they’ll need to win these gimme games if they hope to wind up the campaign with a winning record.
