The Packers got back on track Thursday, thanks in part to a huge game from Aaron Rodgers (and a third-string quarterback being pressed into duty for Chicago).
Here are the 10 best things to look for when Week 7 continues on Sunday, including the undefeated Vikings back in action against the Eagles.

Best chance for an upset
The Chargers are a 6.5-point underdog on the road against the Falcons this week, and for good reason. San Diego has been finding ways to lose more often than not, and Atlanta is off to a 4-2 start with one of the league's most prolific offenses.
But San Diego's defense has looked much better since Joey Bosa arrived, and Philip Rivers has put points on the board all season long. Despite the tough matchup on paper, the Chargers might have a shot.

Best survivor pool pick
Andy Dalton ranks third in the league in passing yards and A.J. Green is third in receiving yards, yet the Cincinnati Bengals rank just 29th in points per game scored.
The points have to start coming this week at home against the Browns ... don't they?

Best individual matchup
Josh Norman vs. the NFL: Norman was fined for this "bow and arrow" celebration, and the league is looking increasingly ridiculous for trying to keep its players from celebrating their accomplishments.
Norman is on record as saying he'll attempt to sidestep the rulebook with a new beer-themed celebration this Sunday, and while this is a battle he can't possibly win, we're excited to see just how far he goes in challenging the league on this issue.
Best bad game
Giants-Rams: Anytime a game is being played in London and it's being televised live at 9:30 a.m. ET, you know you're going to watch. That's why good teams aren't usually a part of the international schedule — because the ratings will be there simply as a function of the time the game kicks off.
The fact that Odell Beckham is involved this week is merely an added bonus.
Best fantasy option
No, we're not advocating that you start Geno Smith at home against the Ravens. We are, however, of the strong belief that Baltimore's defense will feast — and may have to if Joe Flacco is less than 100 percent.
Best of all, there's a good chance the Ravens' D is still available in your league for a nice substitution play this week.

Best chance for a shootout
Saints-Chiefs: Drew Brees and the Saints put points on the board as well as anyone. And thanks to how quickly the New Orleans defense allows points to be scored, it's essentially out of necessity.
Falcons-Chargers is another one to watch — but with Jamaal Charles potentially back for Kansas City, Saints-Chiefs could get crazy in a hurry.

Best bet against the spread
Tom Brady and the Patriots are on a mission, and on the road in Pittsburgh against a Steelers team with no Ben Roethlisberger, winning by more than 7.5 points doesn't really seem like too tall a task.
Eagles-Vikings: This is also (spoiler alert) this week's Best Game, but with the second- and third-ranked defenses squaring off (and with the Eagles looking to get right at home after two tough road losses), points should be at a premium when Minnesota visits on Sunday.
Best late game
Seahawks-Cardinals: Arizona has been inconsistent this season, but there's an easy way for the team to get back into the race for the division title: Just beat Seattle at home on Sunday night.
That, however, will be no small task. The Seahawks have a two-game lead on Arizona with a 4-1 record, and come into the contest boasting the league's best defense.

Vikings-Eagles: Minnesota brings its undefeated 5-0 record into Philadelphia for a battle between two of the top defenses in the league. While the Eagles have struggled on that side of the ball the last two weeks, they'll look to get back on track at home against a Vikings team that ranks dead last in the league in offense.
