As we near All Hallow’s Eve, there were plenty of tricks and treats for week 7 of the 2011 NFL season. The Bears beat the Bucs in jolly old England, Green Bay remained undefeated, the Saints dropped 62 points on the Colts and Raiders quarterback Kyle Boller looked like he couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn (Carson Palmer didn’t fare much better). However, the biggest trick of all was pulled in Miami as some dude named Tim Tebow got his first NFL start….

Tim Tebow Shocks Dolphins
The Dolphins led 15-0 in the fourth quarter of their game against the Broncos with less than 3 minutes to play and it appeared that the hapless ‘Phins would get their first win of the season.

Monday Night Preview: Ravens at Jaguars
Fresh off last week’s win over the Texans, the 4-1 Baltimore Ravens will travel to Florida to face off against the 1-5 Jacksonville Jaguars. The Ravens defense is currently 3rd in the league in rush defense and that might spell problems for Jaguars uber-running back Maurice Jones-Drew.
The Ravens offense has kept up with their defense as they have scored thirty or more points in their last 3 games. Let’s be honest, the Ravens defense is probably already causing nightmares for Jacksonville’s rookie quarterback, Blaine Gabbert and unless an act of the NFL gods occurs, Ravens will cruise to an easy win.
Prediction: Baltimore Ravens 24 Jacksonville Jaguars 6
