|NFL Week 7 Picks|
|Last Week: 8-5 Season: 54-35|
|A mismatch on paper, and on the field it may be worse. Miami traded their
top WR (Chris Chambers) to San Diego, essentially bagging
|The Falcons are the perfect
opponent for a team looking to rebound. Saints should easily make it two
in a row versus this division rival.
|The Giants defense has vastly
improved over the last month, while the 49ers offense has never left the
starting blocks. NY in a relatively low-scoring contest.
|The Texans can't run the football
while the Titans have had problems moving it through the air. I like the
Titans based on the strength of their defense.
|Ravens offense has struggled and
the upstart Bills have had two weeks to prepare. Bills need
to get WR Lee Evans far more involved.
|Redskins strong defense
and the Cardinals QB dilemma smells like trouble for Arizona. Fitzgerald has been terrific, but who's going to get him
|Bucs have played
very well defensively, but lack of a running game hurts. With two weeks to prepare, Lions QB Jon Kitna will test the Bucs quickly.
|Neither team has impressed me
offensively. I like the Raiders on the strength of their defense,
kicking game, and home team advantage.
|People shelling out cash to
watch this one are true football fans. Carson Palmer and
home field advantage will be difficult for the Jets to
|Cowboys look to rebound versus the one-dimensional Vikings. Dallas' stingy defense hasn't
allowed a 100-yard rusher. Something's got to give.
|How the mighty have fallen.
Defending NFC Champs are at a crossroads, fighting for their football
lives. Eagles on the strength of their offense.
|Rams' once-potent offense no
longer scares anyone. Look for Julian Peterson and
Patrick Kearney to have a field day versus the Rams' patchwork offensive
| Steelers are doing it
the old-fashioned way; run the football, don't turn the ball over, and
play big-time defense. Even at home, Denver has struggled.
| I like the Jaguars' running game and ability to
stop the run. Joseph Addai returns for Indy. Did I mention the Colts have a guy by the name of Manning?
