Week 7 NFL Picks

Hello everyone and welcome to Week 7 of my NFL picks.  I went 9-7 last week and have a 53-39 overall record.  Let’s keep this gravy train rolling.  Let’s start with Seattle at Arizona.

Seahawks at Cardinals





This will be a close physical battle but I expect for the Seahawks to ultimately prevail.  They have just too many weapons for the Cardinals to handle.

My Pick:  Seahawks

Buccaneers at Falcons





I had both of these penciled in as playoff teams.  I guess it’s time to re-evaluate that statement.  Anyways Tampa Bay should cover the spread, but I think that Atlanta wins at home and gets their season back on track.

My Pick:  Falcons

Bears at Redskins





The shutdown is over in Washington but not for their football team.  RGIII has been struggling and Cutler has the hot hand so…

My Pick:  Bears

Cowboys at Eagles





Chip Kelly has the Eagles off to a great start but I don’t think that they can contain Dallas’s offense.  As weird as it sounds, I’m picking them to win this game and take control of a weak NFC East.

My Pick:  Cowboys

Patriots at Jets





The Jets may be 3-3, but I’m 0-6 this season when predicting how they’ll do.  I think I’ll be 1-6 after Sunday.

My Pick:  Patriots

Bills at Dolphins





Buffalo will cover the spread but Miami wins this game.  Ultimately because coming off of a bye week they won’t be rusty and they will be too much for the Bills to handle.

My Pick:  Dolphins

Chargers at Jaguars





I think Jacksonville will get at least one win this year, but not this week.

My Pick:  Chargers

Rams at Panthers





Carolina may have laid an egg against Arizona before their bye week, but I say that they bounce back against St. Louis.  Cam Newton is starting that second-half surge, and that win against Minnesota might be indicative of things to come.

My Pick:  Panthers

Bengals at Lions





Detroit may be favored in this game, but there are still questions about Wide Receiver Calvin Johnson’s health.  That could prove the difference in this one.

My Pick:  Bengals

49ers at Titans





San Francisco may have found its rhythm by rattling off three straight wins.  Expect it to be four this week after a visit to Nashville.

My Pick:  49ers   

Texans at Chiefs





I will deny conventional wisdom on this one.

I will pick the Texans against the undefeated Chiefs.  Partially because Kansas City hasn’t really played a strong opponent this season, and also since Houston has a lot of talent on their roster despite their quarterback problems.  I think this may be when Houston starts to bounce back.

My Pick:  Texans

Ravens at Steelers





Despite a strong win against the Jets I don’t see Pittsburgh giving the defending champion Ravens a hard time this week.  I’m not doubting this team, I’m just reminding them that they’re 1-4.

My Pick:  Ravens

Browns at Packers





If it was at Cleveland the Browns might have a chance, but it’s in Green Bay.  I expect for the Browns to cover the point spread, but Aaron Rodgers will find a way to win this game.  Still not a bad start for Cleveland.

My Pick:  Packers

Broncos at Colts





As good as Andrew Luck has been it will be very hard for them to defeat a very motivated Broncos team at home.  Peyton Manning still holds a grudge against being released in 2011, and when Peyton holds a grudge there’s no way you can win.  Just ask Baltimore in Week 1.

My Pick:  Broncos

Vikings at Giants





Well the Giants might have a chance in this one.  I think with Eli’s struggles it all depends on how Adrian Peterson does, and I say he does just enough to help his team win.

My Pick:  Vikings

Stay classy everyone!

Saints and Raiders both have byes this week.
