Week 7 of the 2015 season started off with a monumental game that didn't draw much attention beforehand due to the fact that it was played between two teams that haven't been good. A game in London between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills was broadcast exclusively online on Yahoo!, marking the first time in NFL history that a game was streamed globally on the Internet.
The "test run" for streaming a game could prove to be a significant moment in NFL history, and against the odds, the game itself turned into an entertaining affair when the two teams traded leads in a wild second half. The Jaguars had taken a 27-3 in the first half, but the Bills scored 28 unanswered points to take the lead. Then Blake Bortles led his team down the field to put the Jags up for good.
A matchup between the undefeated Patriots and the division rivals Jets was likely the game of the week. Entering Sunday, no team scored more points than the Patriots while no team allowed fewer points than the Jets, so it was the classic matchup of an unstoppable force against an immovable object. Despite a valiant effort from the Jets, the Patriots were able to do what they always do: win. They remain on top of the AFC East with a 6-0 record.
The Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints met in similar situations. Both battled through injuries to their star quarterbacks earlier in the season and have middling records. After an ugly first half, Andrew Luck and the Colts were able to charge back to make it a game late, but the Saints held on for their second win a row. While a 3-4 record for the Colts is enough for an AFC South lead, the Saints, who are also 3-4, are still in a hole in the strong NFC South.
The later slate of coverage was almost entirely be dedicated to a game between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants, who are in the middle of a tight NFC East race. For the Cowboys, it was the debut of Matt Cassel at quarterback after Brandon Weeden led the team to an 0-3 record during his time as the starter. It did not go well for Cassel or the Cowboys, and the Giants picked up a win.
For those that watched the game between the Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers, they saw the former team dominate by a huge margin en route to a victory, their third of the season.
Ending the day was the Carolina Panthers' 27-16 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in the Sunday-night game. Jonathan Stewart rushed for 125 yards as Carolina overwhelmed a stout Philadelphia defense to move to 6-0 for the first time in franchise history.
