Week 7 Live Blog

Sunday, October 21, 2018


We've been treated to football while eating breakfast this morning with the Chargers and Titans playing in London to kickoff the slate of football games on Sunday. Follow along with the Week Seven Live Blog for all news, scores, big plays, injuries and more.

 

(7:34PM) And with that, I am going to sign off. Thank you for following along. There was a lot of scoring today and congrats to Drew Brees for eclipsing 500 career touchdowns and for now defeating all 32 teams in the NFL. Enjoy tonight's game between Kansas City and Cincinnati.

 

(7:30PM) With only two games left in Week 7, here are your fantasy football leaders:

 

QB 1 - Mitchell Trubisky

QB 2 - Cam Newton

QB 3 - Andrew Luck

QB 4 - Tom Brady

QB 5 - Baker Mayfield

 

RB 1 - Marlon Mack

RB 2 -Todd Gurley

RB 3 - James White

RB 4 - Latavius Murray

RB 5 - Kerryon Johnson

 

WR 1 - John Brown

WR 2 - Tyrell Williams

WR 3 - Adam Thielen

WR 4 - Jarvis Landry

WR 5 - Alshon Jeffery

 

TE 1 - Trey Burton

TE 2 - Michael Roberts

TE 3 - Zach Ertz

TE 4 - David Njoku

TE 5 - Dallas Goedert

 

(7:29PM) Cowboys shoot themselves in the foot and get called for a penalty to push them back an extra 5 yards to make it a 52 yard field goal attempt for K Brett Maher. The kick is a line drive and a bit wobbly and ends up hitting the upright and Washington ends beating the Cowboys 20-17.

 

(7:23PM) The Cowboys are driving down the field and are only down 3. QB Dak Prescott made a great throw to WR Cole Beasley to push them closer to field goal position.

 

(7:10PM) The Rams defense has been relentless all day long against the 49ers and their offensive line. 49ers QB CJ Beathard has been sacked 7 times today and has been hit an additional 10 times and have 4 pass deflections on top of that. 4 sacks came from Aaron Donald, who has now doubled his total on the season.

 

(7:06PM) Ravens K Justin Tucker misses his first career extra point which would have tied the game up against the Saints. Instead, they are going to suffer a tough hard loss by 1 point. Gut wrenching for one of the elite kickers in the NFL. 

 

(7:05PM) TOUCHDOWN: QB Joe Flacco drives the Ravens down the field for 86 yards on just 6 plays and finishes it off with a 14-yard touchdown pass to WR John Brown. This was an amazing drive and they can tie it up with 24 seconds left.

 

(7:02) TOUCHDOWN: The Rams are just piling it on now. After losing a challenge that they had a safety, J Natson had a really nice 36-yard punt return to ran it back to the 49ers 13 yard line. The Rams gave it to RB Todd Gurley twice with his second play being a 12-yard catch from QB Jared Goff. That was Gurley's 3 touchdown on the day (2 rush, 1 catch). Gurley now has 86 total yards on the day. Goff also has 2 passing touchdowns to go along with 202 passing yards.  

 

(6:48PM) TOUCHDOWN: Washington's defense storms Cowboys QB Dak Prescott and he is sacked by Ryan Kerrigan. The ball is stripped and eventually recovered in the end zone by Preston Smith and Washington now leads 20-10 with 4:55 left in the game. That is the second time Prescott has fumbled the ball and was recovered by Washington. 

 

(6:36PM) The Saints score their second touchdown in the second half with QB Drew Brees hitting WR Michael Thomas for a 5-yard touchdown throw. This is now the second most points the Ravens have allowed on the season. Saints lead 21-17.

 

(6:32PM) The Rams are starting to put this game out of reach against San Francisco as RB Todd Gurley gets his second rushing touchdown on the afternoon with a 1 yard run. Rams now lead San Francisco 32-7.

 

(6:20PM) RB Todd Gurley is starting to heat up. He has just about doubled his output on his last two runs for 30 yards. He is now up to 56 yards on the afternoon.

 

(6:15PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Saints cut the Ravens lead to just 3 with RB Alvin Kamara barreling his way through the Ravens defensive line for a 2-yard touchdown run. The Ravens have only allowed more than 14 points just once this season and that came in Week 2 when they lost to the Bengals 34-23 in Cincinnati.

 

(6:10PM) After 3 quarters in Baltimore, the Ravens top ranked defense which only allows 12.8 points per game has held the Saints top scoring offense which averages 36.0 points per game to just 7 points, but the Saints are currently driving and are on Baltimore's 16 yard line to start the 4th.

 

(6:04PM) Washington is unable to score after having 1st and goal and RB Adrian Peterson making his way to the 1 yard line. It's a bit of a disappointment and they need to score 6 there as opposed to settling for a field goal. Washington leads Dallas 10-7 in the 3rd quarter.

 

(6:01PM) The Ravens take a 10 point lead in the 3rd quarter due to an 8-yard touchdown pass from QB Joe Flacco to rookie TE Mark Andrews and that is his first touchdown reception since their Week 2 loss against the Bengals.

 

(5:58PM) Willie Snead not helping out QB Joe Flacco as he drops a pass right in his chest and he was completely wide open with roughly 10 yards free in front of him. Lucky for him, WR Michael Crabtree bailed him out with a great leaping catching along the sideline to convert on 3rd down and keeping the drive alive.

 

(5:45PM) TOUCHDOWN: After a long review, the 49ers are finally on the board with a 9-yard touchdown throw from QB CJ Beathard to his college teammate, TE George Kittle. Kittle ended up with 44 yards on that 8 play 75 yard touchdown drive. K Robbie Gould makes it a 15 point game with his extra point and the 49ers will head into the half down 22-7. 

 

(5:42PM) 49ers RB Matt Breida gets tackled after running for a 1st down but comes off the field limping very badly. He's been dealing with an ankle injury for a few weeks now, but has been playing through it. Something to keep an eye.

 

(5:35PM) TOUCHDOWN: More rookie firsts in these late games as Cowboys rookie WR Michael Gallup catches his first NFL career touchdown pass from QB Dak Prescott for 49 yards. That catch alone is the most yards he's ever had in a game. It is also the longest touchdown throw in Prescott's career. Gallup is now up to 3 catches and 81 yards while Prescott has 149 yards and 1 touchdown.

 

(5:33PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Rams add onto their lead with QB Jared Goff connecting with WR Brandin Cooks for a 19-yard touchdown. Rams now lead 22-0 while Goff has completed 10 of his 13 passes for 114 yards and 1 touchdown throw and Cooks is up to 41 yards on just 3 catches.

 

(5:26PM) TOUCHDOWN: Ravens QB Lamar Jackson went in at quarterback with Joe Flacco lining up out wide and Jackson runs it in for a 1 yard touchdown and it's his first NFL career touchdown. The Ravens lead 10-7. 

 

(5:19PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Saints take a 7-3 on QB Drew Brees' 500th career touchdown pass. TE Ben Watson was on the receiving end of that 1 yard touchdown pass and it comes against his former Ravens team. 

 

(5:10PM) SCORE ALERT: The Rams special teams comes up big as Cory Littleton blocks a Brandon Pinion punt and the football trickles out of bounds for a safety for the Rams. L.A. now leads San Francisco 12-0 and will be getting the ball back. That is also the third safety already today. 

 

(5:08PM) INJURY UPDATE: It appears Dak Prescott should be OK because his backup Cooper Rush has taken a seat and put his coat back on. Prescott has been cleared of a concussion, but the medical team was looking at his left hand.

 

(5:05PM) TOUCHDOWN: The Rams extend their lead over the 49ers to 10-0 as RB Todd Gurley runs one in from 7 yards out.

 

(5:04PM) INJURY: Cowboys QB Dak Prescott took a big hit as he was running down the sideline and has been forced to exit the field and enter the blue medical tent. I'll keep you posted as soon as information is provided on the extent of his potential injur.
