Another week of the NFL season is behind us, and there’s lots to break down.

Here are my four biggest observations from week seven.

1) Carson Wentz is the real deal.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz successfully silenced any remaining critics Monday night against the Washington Redskins. He had complete control of that game from start to finish, and anybody who still doubts him at this point is simply ignorant. The North Dakota native looks like he is going to be the future face of quarterbacks in the league for a long time.

2) What happened to the Atlanta Falcons?

The Falcons looked like contenders once again at the start of the season. They certainly don’t anymore. Matt Ryan and his team have lost three in a row, and don’t appear to be pulling up from this nosedive anytime soon. There are serious problems down in Atlanta.

3) The Packers are in deep trouble.

Backup quarterback Brett Hundley looked average at times against New Orleans, and looked downright awful at other moments of the game. The Packers won’t win much as long as Aaron Rodgers is healing his collarbone on the bench.

4) The Cowboys have bounced back.

Dallas obliterated the San Francisco 49ers, and looked like a team that has successfully pulled out of its early season slump. Their future now comes down to whether or not Ezekiel Elliott is capable of staving off his suspension until the end of the season.
