Week 7 of the NFL was an important week for many NFL teams that were looking to right the ship and continue their playoff push. Several Latinos stood out with their strong play, giving their teams a shot at victory.

Here’s a look at 3 standout Latino players that stood out in Week 7.

  1. Chris Olave, WR, New Orleans Saints, (Cuba)

After missing Week 6 due to a concussion, Olave made his presence felt against the Cardinals. He had 7 receptions for a total of 106 yards. The rookie has had a big impact all season long for the Saints and Week 7 was his 5th week in a row with 50+ receiving yards. Olave, whose dad is from Cuba, led the team in targets, receptions, and yards this week and his longest reception was for 41 yards. However, his performance wasn’t enough, as the Saints fell to the Cardinals 42-34.

2. Marco Wilson, CB, Arizona Cardinals, (Puerto Rico)

Marco Wilson had a huge game for Arizona, recording a pick-6 which also happened to be his first career interception. He returned the interception to the endzone for 38 yards in a game the Cardinals ended up winning 42-34. It’s Wilson’s second consecutive week making this list, which shows the kind of impact he is having on the Cardinals' secondary.

3. Isiah Pacheco RB, Kansas City Chiefs, (Puerto Rico)

Isiah Pacheco had a solid showing in the Chiefs' win against the San Francisco 49ers, 44-23. He even got the start over RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire. Pacheco, born and raised in New Jersey with a parent from Puerto Rico, recorded 43 yards on 8 rushing attempts. His longest run of the night was a 17-yard rush where he was able to find some daylight to help close out the win over the 49ers.
