Week 7 starts tonight and the landscape of the NFL is starting to take shape. Will things stay status quo, or will America’s best soap opera leave us all on the edge of our seats?
Thursday Night Football – 8:25 PM Kick
5-1 KC Chiefs (-3 ) @ 2-4 Oak Raiders
Thursday Night Football has really been stepping up its game in recent weeks, and this match-up should keep that ball rolling. The Chiefs had a hiccup in Pittsburg last week and the Raiders have yet to click on all cylinders this season. But this is a match-up of two of the pre-season favorites in the AFC. I see an exciting game on tap, with the Chiefs coming out on top.
Chiefs 31 – Raiders 23
Sunday Afternoon 1:00 PM Kicks
2-3 TB Bucs @ 3-2 Buf Bills (No Line)
The Bucs may be without QB Jamies Winston. If that holds true then Ryan Fitzpatrick’s Beard gets the start. Luckily for the Bills, Fitzpatrick has plenty of experience losing games in Buffalo.
Bills 24 – Bucs 21
4-2 Car Panthers (-3) @ 2-4 Chi Bears
Last week Mitch Trubinsky won one more game than I thought he would this season. Thank God he got to go toe-to-toe with Joe Flacco. Enjoy last week Mitchell.
Panthers 29 – Bears 22
3-3 Ten Titans (-5.5) @ 0-6 Cle Browns
The Titans and QB Marcus Mariota needed the first half Monday night to shake off some rust against the Colts. The Browns last week benched their starting QB for Kevin Hogan. Kizer is getting the job back this week due to injury. Will the Browns finally win one this year? Not this week Hue.
Titans 34 – Browns 18
3-2 NO Saints (-4.5) @ 4-2 GB Packers
The story of week six was the possible season ending injury to Aaron Rodgers. The Packers may have to finish the season without one of the best players in football. In his place, steps Brett Hundley. Hundley probably isn’t even the best Brett for the job. Saints should march all over and in Green Bay.
Saints 36 – Packers 23
3-3 Jax Jaguars (-3) @ 2-4 Ind Colts
The Colts may have to shut Andrew Luck down for the season. The Jaguars could only be so lucky with Blake Bortles. Luckily the Jags have a great ground game and an elite D. The Colts have Jacoby Brissett…
Jags 28 – Colts 10
3-3 Arz Cards @ 4-2 LA Rams (-3.5)
Last week Adrian Peterson looked like he was 23 not 33. And Todd Gurley has helped lead the Rams to a 4-2 record. I think this one should be close, but im giving the home team the edge.
Rams 27 – Cards 24
3-3 NY Jets @3-2 Mia Dolphins (-3)
Last week the Jets went toe-to-toe with the Patriots and the Dolphins pulled a Patriots on the Falcons. This week they go head to head in Miami. In a sentence I never thought I’d write, I have more fait in Josh McCown than Jay Cutler.
Jets 23 – Fins 21
3-3 Bal Ravens @ 4-2 Min Vikings (5.5)
The Ravens squandered two return Td’s in a loss to the Bears last week. The Vikings knocked Aaron Rodgers out for the year. Joe Flacco is in trouble.
Vikings 24 – Ravens 13
Sunday West-Coast 4:05 Kick
2-3 Dal Cowboys (-6) @ 0-6 SF 49ers
The 49ers have lost their last 5 games close. The Cowboys have not looked like the team that took the league by storm last season. Can CJ Beatherd be the savior of the 49ers season? Not this week.
Cowboys 31 – 49ers 27
Sunday Prime-Time 4:25 Kicks
2-3 Cin Bengals @ 4-2 Pit Steelers (-5)
The Steelers continue to own the Chiefs, as they beat them again last week. The Bengals usually play the Steelers tough, but eventually find hilarious and tragic ways to lose at the end. This time im sensing a Steelers beat down.
Steelers 36 – Bengals 19
3-2 Den Broncos @ 2-4 LA Chargers (-1)
This is a rematch from week one, when the Chargers mounted a valiant comeback that ended in a missed field goal as time expired. The Chargers have won their last two games while the Broncos just let the Giants win their first game of the year. Go Chargers, Go.
Chargers 24 – Broncos 23
3-2 Sea Seahawks (-5.5) @ 1-5 NY Giants
The Giants got in the win column last week despite having no NFL caliber wide receivers healthy. Both of these teams are built in similar fashion. Stong defense and no offensive lines. The Seahawks have Russell Wilson and his ability to make plays out of nothing. The Giants are coached by Ben Macadoo. Advantage Legion of Boom.
Seahawks 24 – Giants 13
Sunday Night Football – 8:30 Kick
3-2 Atl Falcons @ 4-2 NE Patriots (-3)
It’s the Super Bowl rematch we’ve all been waiting for. Neither team has looked as good or as impressive as they did last year when they met up in the big game. The Falcons though did prep for the game last week by blowing a 17 point lead to the Dolphins. Never forget.
Patriots 28 – Falcons 3
Monday Night Football – 8:30 Kick
3-2 Was Redskins @ 5-1 Phi Eagles (-4.5)
The Eagles are flying high, having soared to the top of the NFC East at 5-1. The Redskins will look to avenge the week one loss to the Eagles in prime-time. I’m feeling the Redskins pulling this out in a shoot-out.
Skins 34 – Eagles 30
