Well, I finally got around to Week 7 of the NFL season (my bad) so here's your recap. Week 8 will come tomorrow after Brandon Flowers and the Chiefs play the Chargers on MNF tonight.
Tim Tebow got his first start with the Broncos and Eddie Royal return from injury to help out in the win. The Lions dropped their second straight game as they lost to the Falcons. New Orleans? Just a 62-7 beat down on the Indianapolis Colts. I mean come on, can't we go ahead and give Peyton Manning the MVP? He's clearly the Most Valuable Player.
Follow the jump to see how former Hokies fared in Week 7 of the NFL Season.
