October 26 Breaking the Plane Podcast: Week 7 NFL Analysis

We are nearing the halfway point of the NFL season and while the NFC has been very competitive, the AFC seems to be the Patriots and with every other team a tier below. On the October 19 Breaking the Plane Podcast Matt Williamson (@WilliamsonNFL) and Jon Ledyard (@LedyardNFLDraft) analyze the action from Week 7 of the NFL.
