Recap of the 2007 NFL Football Season
The 2007 NFL draft saw LSU quarterback JeMarcus Russell chosen #1 overall by the Oakland Raiders. The surprise of the draft however, was the fall of Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn. Quinn was projected as being a top five pick but subsequently fell to number 22 and was drafted by the Cleveland Browns. The Browns also made out as they took Offensive Tackle Joe Thomas with the #3 pick. Adrian Peterson was selected 7th by the Minnesota Vikings and immediately made a splash in the NFL. Running back Marshawn Lynch was chosen 12th by the Buffalo Bills. Other notable picks included Paul Posluszny (34) and Dwayne Jarrett (45).
The 88th season of the NFL was special in many ways. The NFL had decided to go global by playing two international games per season. In 2007 however, there was only one game played in London between the New York Giants and the Miami Dolphins. There had previously been an exhibition game scheduled for China dubbed the “China Bowl” but it was postpones due to preparation for the Olympics.
The New England Patriots were the second team in the history of the NFL to go unbeaten in the regular season. The 16-0 Patriots were the #1 seed in the playoffs in the AFC. Indianapolis went 13-3 and San Diego was 11-5 with Pittsburgh, Jacksonville and Tennessee rounding out the picture. In the NFC the Dallas Cowboys once again finished wit the #1 seed going 13-3 in regular season play. Green Bay matched Dallas’s record by going 13-3 as well. Seattle, Tampa Bay, New York and Washington also made the postseason.
Tom Brady threw for over 4,800 yards in 2007 leading all quarterbacks in passing yards. Drew Brees of New Orleans also put up respectable numbers by throwing for 4,423. Brady also broke Peyton Manning’s previous record of 49 touchdowns thrown in a single season by tossing 50. LaDainian Tomlinson led all running backs in yardage with 1,474. Rookie Adrian Peterson was second with 1,341 yards in his 1st year. Tomlinson also led all backs with 15 rushing touchdowns. T.J. Houshmandzadeh from Cincinnati and Wes Welker of New England both caught 112 passes in 2007. Reggie Wayne of Indianapolis led receivers with 1,510 yards.
The Indianapolis Colts was a stingy defense in 2007 giving up a paltry 262 points in 2007.
Tom Brady put together a stellar year keeping his team undefeated in the regular season and was awarded the league MVP and the Offensive Player of the Year in 2007. Safety Bob Sanders of Indianapolis was awarded the Defensive Player of the Year. Minnesota Vikings rookie phenom Adrian Peterson was awarded the Offensive Rookie of the Year while San Francisco linebacker, Patrick Willis walked away with the Defensive Rookie of the Year.
The Undefeated New England Patriots face the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLII and were heavily favored to finish their perfect season with a win.
