NFL Week 7 – Picks
Every sunday I will be making picks for each game of every week. The game that occurs before that sunday, will be picked in the previous article of updated power rankings each week. This past thursday, I correctly picked the 49’ers to beat the Seahawks. Here are the rest of the picks for Week 7:
Week 7 (Winners in Bold and Italicized):
NO @ TB – A fresh Saints squad should be able to handle the Bucs.
ARZ @ MIN – Both teams coming off tough losses, but the Vikings are the better team, and should be able to put a lot of pressure on Skelton.
WSH @ NYG – This is a classic game for the Giants to lose. At home, coming off huge win against a tough opponent, and then shows us they can be really inconsistent. Plus they really haven’t played well against the Redskins. Redskins in the upset.
CLE @ IND – I may have taken the Browns if they were at home, but I expect Luck to have a better performance then last week, and be able to squeeze out the victory.
DAL @ CAR – Don’t know which Panthers team shows up, but Dallas should be hungry for a victory after such a tough loss last week.
TEN @ BUF – Should be a high scoring game as both teams can score points but have a tough time defending others. If Chris Johnson wants to prove he might be on a comeback, today would be a good time to show the world.
GB @ STL – Maybe a trap game if the Packers were playing well all year, but the Packers have just started to play like the Packers of last year, and they should continue it, heading into STL.
BAL @ HOU – Both teams missing their captains, and Ravens without Webb. This game is for 1st place outright in the AFC and big game for both. Battle Red day in Houston, and the fans are even louder on these days. Texans should be playing upset after tough loss, whereas the Ravens have really struggled on the road.
NYJ @ NE – Jets coming in with big win under belt, and Patriots with a bad loss. Patriots at home playing mad, and should be able to handle the Jets in easy fashion.
JAX @ OAK – Both teams have just one win, but the Raiders are the better team and it shows today.
PIT @ CIN – Steelers are without two RB’s, and banged up on defense, but should be able to beat the Bengals in Cincinnati.
DET @ CHI – Bears coming fresh off a bye, and their defense has been stellar all season. Lions have struggled on offense, and their defense is very beatable.
That wraps up the picks for week 7. I will update my (hopefully) above .500 record every tuesday or wednesday. Looking forward to having a great sunday. Good luck to your hometown team, and as always, Go Texans!
