Vaccum-sealed steak in refrigerator 1 week, OK?

I bought 2 packages bison steaks last weekend (Friday) which are vacuum-sealed. I used the 1st package on Sunday night, but do not plan to use the 2nd package until this upcoming weekend. The package reads "use or freeze by July 21st." Is it safe to assume that it is fine to leave them sealed and put them in a cold spot in the fridge for the next several days?

Thanks in advance.

    1. Oh yeah,,,,,consider it being aged. That cryovac packaging does wonders.

        Oh heck, yeah. I've aged beef deliberately for longer than that.
