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

(5-1-0)

Seahawks

(3-3-0)

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

(0-5-0)

Buccaneers

(1-4-0)

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

(4-2-0)

Bears

(1-4-0)

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

(3-3-0)

Cowboys

(3-3-0)

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

(5-1-0)

Patriots

(3-3-0)

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

(2-4-0)

Bills

(3-2-0)

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

(3-3-0)

Chargers

(0-6-0)

Jaguars

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

My Pick:  Chargers

Rams at Panthers

(3-3-0)

Rams

(2-3-0)

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

(4-2-0)

Bengals

(4-2-0)

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

(4-2-0)

49ers

(3-3-0)

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

(2-4-0)

Texans

(6-0-0)

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

(3-3-0)

Ravens

(1-4-0)

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

(3-3-0)

Browns

(3-2-0)

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

(6-0-0)

Broncos

(4-2-0)

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

(1-4-0)

Vikings

(0-6-0)

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.

HOHOHO!
