Most Surprising NFL Teams After Week 7 of the 2017-18 Season

With the conclusion of Week 7 here are the teams that have surprised us the most good or bad.

The Top Ten

1 Chicago Bears Chicago Bears The Chicago Bears are a professional American football team in Chicago, Illinois. The Bears compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division.

I think probably the Bears are the most surprising after week 7. But I fear there limited passing offense will eventually come back to haunt them. Minnesota has had some good fortune in playing a fairly easy schedule, the Lions haven't played well in weeks and the Packers are w/o Rodgers, so yeah, Chicago could shock us all and win the NFC North - Ned964

Da Bears put up 17 points against Carolina and held a hot Panthers offense to only a field goal. What's really surprising is that Da Bears didn't even have much offense. It was their defense that carried them. They showed us they have a defense and may have very well put themselves into the race for the wide open NFC North - Randomator

2 Oakland Raiders Oakland Raiders The Oakland Raiders are a professional American football franchise based in Oakland, California. The Raiders began playing in 1960 as a member club of the American Football League; they have been a member club of the National Football League since the 1970 AFL–NFL merger.

The Raiders suddenly came to life after looking dead for most of the season thus far. Amari Cooper finally came to life as well. After losing 4 straight and falling to last place in the division they might still be able to climb back into the race especially after beating Kansas City in a thrilling last second fashion. Oakland still has hope after being all but dead - Randomator

This was clearly a game the Raiders had to give it there all, and man was a thrilling match to watch to the end. - htoutlaws2012

3 Atlanta Falcons Atlanta Falcons The Atlanta Falcons are a professional American football team based in Atlanta, Georgia. The Falcons compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference South division.

In the foggy super bowl rematch Atlanta was held to only 7 points. Instead of revenge the Falcons basically had a switcheroo with New England. The Falcons could potentially be heading for deep trouble if they don't turn the ship around.They still have all 6 division games to go so they are still in the air. - Randomator

I do think the Falcons will see better results as the season goes on. This is a tough division, so it will be interesting. They also have played a tough schedule so far, and losing to Miami at home didn't exactly help matters. - Ned964

4 Tennessee Titans Tennessee Titans The Tennessee Titans are a professional American football team based in Nashville, Tennessee. The Titans compete in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference South division.

I have to say this game was not what I expected at all. They won in overtime but against the Browns? (I do feel sorry for Cleveland.They were so close.)This game was ugly on so many levels. Tennessee should be embarrassed. - Randomator

I didn't actually see the game, but there were not many highlights to speak of. The Titans have a great deal of young talent, but so do a few more teams, and young NFL teams always seem to play inconsistently. The future appears bright for them, and they also play in a weak division, so they should be fine. - Ned964

5 Los Angeles Chargers Los Angeles Chargers

They started out 0-4 but have since won 3 straight games. After shutting out Denver do they have a chance to get out of the basement? Will Philip Rivers finally break through and make a statement as one of the most underrated QB's? - Randomator

They started off terrible, but after 3 games they have been on the rise since picking up a very crucial week 5 victory. They can stay in contention for a bit, but will they do enough to earn a wild card spot will be the question. - htoutlaws2012

6 Denver Broncos Denver Broncos The Denver Broncos are an American football team based in Denver, Colorado. The Broncos compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's American Football Conference West division.

Losing is one thing but a blowout loss to the Chargers is something else. The Broncos struggled all game long. I'm kinda surprised Simeian remains the starting QB. With a rough stretch ahead Denver could be in trouble - Randomator

What is going on with Denver is right you lose to a bad Giants team, then you lose pathetically to a rising Chargers team now suddenly in the mix for the AFC West. Meanwhile Raiders scored a big upset while the Broncos could be sitting last in a toughest division in the AFC. - htoutlaws2012

7 Jacksonville Jaguars Jacksonville Jaguars The Jacksonville Jaguars are an American professional football franchise based in Jacksonville, Florida.

This week we saw the return of Sacksonville. The Jags actually looked like a real team against a banged up Colts team still missing Andrew Luck. Keep it up and you have some hope - Randomator

8 Arizona Cardinals Arizona Cardinals The Arizona Cardinals are a professional American football franchise based in the Phoenix metropolitan area.

And this is why I don't believe in the Cardinals. Because of games like what happened against the Rams. Even with AP they were blanked by the LA. Palmer went down and they looked lifeless. - Randomator

9 Carolina Panthers Carolina Panthers The Carolina Panthers are a professional American football team based in Charlotte, North Carolina, that competes in the National Football League.

After looking so hot on offense the Panthers were completely shut out by Chicago. I thought Carolina could score more than a field goal. - Randomator

That was kinda surprising, but at the same time John Fox's old team that probably played a factor. - htoutlaws2012

10 Miami Dolphins Miami Dolphins The Miami Dolphins are a professional American football franchise located in the Miami metropolitan area.

Matt Moore helped this team rally to barely edge the Jets after Jay Cutler was injured. I'm not too surprised because this is Miami. - Randomator

Well if anything Matt Moore should of been the initial starter not Jay Cutler, now his out for an extended period the Dolphins will look a lot more different. - htoutlaws2012

The Contenders

11 Cleveland Browns Cleveland Browns The Cleveland Browns are a professional American football team based in Cleveland, Ohio. The Browns compete in the National Football League as a member team of the American Football Conference North division. more.

I don't see Cleveland going anywhere obviously but just the fact that they were actually close against a decent Titans team instead of getting blown out. The Browns took them to Overtime. Cleveland you were oh So close... - Randomator

Joe Thomas going down was a monumental injury though that changed the game for the Titans to come out with the weak victory. - htoutlaws2012
