The NFL Week 7 slate is full of awesome games
We have tough division battles, interconference matchups, and some of the best players in the league going head-to-head.
Here are the three must-watch games of Week 7.
Detroit Lions at Dallas Cowboys
This game is must-see TV for the return of Cowboys quarterback, Dak Prescott.
Dallas enters the game at 4-2 while the Lions are 1-4.
Highest team PPG by starting QB since 2020 (min. 20 games):

But, the matchup to watch for in this game is the Lions’ offense vs the Cowboys’ defense.
Detroit is third in the league in points per game with 28.0.
While the Dallas defense gives up only 16.3 points per game.
This is set up to be a high-scoring battle between two NFC opponents.
Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans
This game will feature two AFC South teams battling for the division lead.
Both teams have struggled so far this year, but this could be a momentum-shifting week.
The Colts welcome back, Jonathan Taylor, who missed the previous two games with an ankle sprain.
On the other side, running back Derrick Henry comes into this game off a bye week.
He should be fresh and expect a large workload for the former rushing champion.
The difference in this game will be which team wins the turnover battle.
Division games usually come down to the small stuff and whoever executes better will win.
Kansas City Chiefs at San Francisco 49ers
This looks like the best game of the Sunday slate.
Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs traveling to the 49ers in a Super Bowl 54 rematch.
The Chiefs are coming off a tough loss to the Bills and are looking to get back in the win column.
For the 49ers, they welcome Christian McCaffrey to the roster.
The former all-pro is expected to make his team debut and his impact should be felt immediately.
Christian McCaffrey, who was traded to San Francisco late Thursday night and flew to his new employer Friday, is expected to make his 49ers debut today vs. the Chiefs, per sources. The 49ers have a package of plays in their gameplan for McCaffrey.

San Francisco will need to pressure Mahomes if they want any chance of winning this game.
With all the pressure on Jimmy Garoppolo to show he can lead this loaded offense to a huge win.
