NFL Week 7 grades: Patriots get an ‘F’ for shocking Monday loss, Bengals earn ‘A’ after steamrolling Falcons

Published:

With the Bills and Chiefs playing so well this season, the Bengals have slowly turn into a forgotten contender within the AFC, but against the Falcons on Sunday, the defending AFC champs put the remaining of the NFL on notice that they are still the most effective teams within the league. 

The Bengals are at their best when Joe Burrow brings his “A” game, and Burrow definitely brought his “A” game on Sunday. Joe Cool threw for 481 yards and three touchdowns during a dominating 35-17 home win over the Falcons. 

Burrow’s passing total was the very best within the NFL this 12 months, the second-highest total of his profession and third-highest total in franchise history (He set his team and profession record in 2021 when he threw for 525 yards against the Ravens). 

The thing that makes the Bengals offense so dangerous is that they’ll rating from anywhere on the sphere, and Burrow proved that when he hit Tyler Boyd for a 60-yard touchdown along with his third pass of the sport. 

In relation to scoring on the deep ball, no team is best than the Bengals. That throw marked the twelfth time over the past two seasons that Burrow has thrown a TD pass of fifty yards or more. To place that in perspective, no other quarterback has even done that eight times. In relation to touchdown CATCHES of fifty yards or more over the past two seasons, nobody is best at scoring on the long ball than Ja’Marr Chase (6) and Tyler Boyd (4), who rank one and two within the NFL. 

Chase didn’t add to his total on Sunday, but he did rating two touchdowns that each went for greater than 30 yards. On the primary play of the second quarter, Burrow threw Chase an absolute dime that went for a 32-yard touchdown: 

Chase also caught a 41-yard rating in the sport on a day where he finished with eight catches for 130 yards. To not be outdone, Boyd actually topped Chase’s receiving total with 155 yards on eight catches. 

The Bengals got here just seven yards wanting having THREE different receivers finish with greater than 100 yards. Tee Higgins caught five passes for 93 yards in the sport. And that is what makes the Bengals offense so dangerous: When all three receivers are healthy, this offense is nearly unattainable to stop. Whenever you throw in Hayden Hurst (six catches for 48 yards), Joe Mixon (three catches for 33) and a slowly improving offensive line, the Bengals are looking higher and higher each week. 

The Bengals have flown under-the-rader through the primary seven weeks of the season, and to be honest, they probably prefer it that way. The defending conference champion often has a goal on their back the next season, but by some means, that focus on ended up on the Bills and the Chiefs in a season where the Bengals are only quietly coasting along. 

After a slow begin to the season, the Bengals offense has finally found its groove, and that makes Cincinnati considered one of the scariest teams within the NFL, and being scary is fitting for this team — their next game is on Halloween. 

Alright, let’s get to the grades for each game from Week 7. In the event you’re in search of a deeper dive on the Cardinals‘ wild 42-34 win over the Saints that was played on Thursday, be sure you click here
