Week 7 Byes: Philadelphia Eagles + Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Thursday Night Football - Week 7
If talk could win football games the New York Jets would be undefeated versus the New England Patriots. Jets HC Rex Ryan loves to hate New England and though tight-lipped, the Patriots likely reciprocate the same feelings behind closed doors.

These two teams last met during the preseason as they do most seasons however the last regular season meeting was in 2010 when the Niners beat the Broncos back when Peyton Manning still had a blue horseshoe on his helmet. These two were also just a few plays away from playing each other in Super Bowl XLVIII but we know how that turned...for both teams.
Also, it is still early to tell but this may be the week when Peyton Manning passes Brett Farve for the all-time passing touchdown record which currently stands at 508 TD passes.
