The Saints put up 62 points on the Colts in week seven. 62. Forget ghosts, monsters and zombies – the Colts' defense was most afraid of Drew Brees and his rocket arm last Sunday. The veteran QB threw for 325 and five scores while New Orleans obliterated the winless Colts. Meanwhile, rookie running back Demarco Murray busted out for a franchise record 253 yards for the Cowboys as Dallas cruised to a 34-7 victory over the Rams.
Quarterback change has been the theme in the NFL over the past few days – four teams will feature new starting gunslingers in week seven. Jacob is still in first place among our experts, but his margin for error is slim.
So much for the "dream team" in Philly. The Eagles haven't lived up to pre-season expectations, dropping four straight after beating the Rams in week one.

Watch video from Blair's Thursday night loss to Springbrook at Blazer stadium. The Blazers struck first, but were unable to keep up the offensive intensity throughout the entirety of the 17-6 loss.
After being shut out in consecutive weeks by Sherwood and Northwood, the Blazers were desperate for their first victory facing a mediocre Blue Devil squad. Through the game's first five minutes, it seemed as if Blair was primed to finally capture that elusive W. However, Springbrook came roaring back to capture a lead they would hold for the rest of the game. Penalties, key players out due to injury and poor execution all contributed to Blair's sixth straight loss.
Coming off a 35-0 loss to Sherwood, the varsity football team (0-5) was hoping to rebound against rival Northwood (3-2). From the opening kickoff, it was clear that the Gladiators had different plans - senior Al Bangura returned the opening kickoff 80 yards for a touchdown. Northwood never looked back, dominating all four quarters and cruising to a 42-0 victory.
Jacob now has sole possession of first place heading into week four. However, the rest of our experts are in close pursuit and looking to improve after another set of games this Sunday.
Sherwood (2-2) outplayed the varsity football team (0-4) in every aspect of Friday night's game. Injuries, a lack of offensive production, and a number of costly fumbles prevented Blair from having any chance at competing.
