NFL Week 7 as told by tweets

By Jameson Fleming | Staff

Each Sunday we'll recap the week that was in the NFL with the top tweets from across Twitter.

It's looking more and more like on each NFL Sunday Robert Griffin III could add to his already growing legend. During Week 7, RG3 nearly pulled off a fourth quarter comeback against the defending Super Bowl champs.

Unfortunately for RG3 and the Redskins, Eli Manning got the last laugh.

New Orleans and Tampa Bay had their own shootout going. The Saints defense collapsed (again) and led to the referees incorrectly interpreting a rule Twitter users didn't like. First the explanation:

But was Josh Freeman actually out of the pocket?

Quick Hitters:

How good is Aaron Rodgers?

What about J.J. Watt?

Terrell Suggs may have topped Adrian Peterson in the "most impressive recovery from a serious injury" category.

The Saints allowed a 95-yard non-TD pass, then stopped Tampa at the one. Because that clearly makes sense.

Chris Johnson had his best game since Week 13 last year.

The NFL is a little behind the times.

Sack, fumble, game over...
