Top 10 games of the season's first half

The top 10 games of the 2007 season, as selected by the staff:



WEEK 4: Giants 16, Eagles 3: What do you do for an encore the week after scoring 56 points? Score just three, and in the process allow an NFL-record tying 12 sacks (previously done four times).



WEEK 6: Patriots 48, Cowboys 27: After the Cowboys took a 24-21 lead with 10:20 to go in the third quarter, New England outscored Dallas 27-3 and outgained Dallas 234-50 in offensive yards to take the game over.



WEEK 6: Vikings 34, Bears 31: A game that was supposed to feature stout defense turned into a high-scoring, highlight-reel filling extravaganza. Adrian Peterson and Devin Hester accounted for much of the fun.



WEEK 9: Vikings 35, Chargers 17: In a matchup featuring the game's best running back and the game's best up-and-coming running back, it was the newcomer who stole the show.



WEEK 7: Titans 38, Texans 36: The Texans nearly pulled off the third-greatest comeback in NFL history. Instead, it was kicker Rob Bironas who made history, making an NFL-record eight field goals.



WEEK 2: Browns 51, Bengals 45: Seattle apparently woke up a sleeping giant when it traded for Charlie Frye. Who knew the Browns -- with Derek Anderson at QB -- were capable of a 51-point, 531-yard explosion?



WEEK 3: Eagles 56, Lions 21: Wow, those 1933 throwbacks were hideous. But Team Sweden (err, the Eagles) may want to consider keeping those uniforms around after this blowout win.



WEEK 9: Patriots 24, Colts 20: The game was billed as " Super Bowl 41.5," and it lived up to its outrageous hype as the Patriots were forced to mount a fourth-quarter rally to escape with a win and a perfect 9-0 record.



WEEK 8: Packers 19, Broncos 13 (OT): Mr. Monday night, Brett Favre, hit Greg Jennings for an 82-yard touchdown bomb on the first play from scrimmage in overtime for a memorable finish that will be relived forever.



WEEK 5: Cowboys 25, Bills 24: The Cowboys proved the old adage "it's never over until it's over" true once again, as Dallas scored nine points in the final 20 seconds for an improbable win.
