NFL Week 7 Picks

I need a perfect weekend.

Green Bay @ Cleveland - The Packers should easily win this game, but with them juggling their offensive line due to injuries (Clifton), the Browns may cause some problems like they did last week with the Steelers. Winner - Packers.

San Diego @ Kansas City - Finally a game the Chargers SHOULD win. The Chiefs were able to get a win last week against the Redskins and they actually look decent. They seem to be solid on both sides of the ball. The Chargers' inconsistency scares the isht out of me, but I gotta think they can beat a bad team. Winner - Chargers.

Indianapolis @ St. Louis - The Colts travel to St. Louis to run the score up. Think Patriots from last week. Winner - Colts.

Minnesota @ Pittsburgh - Hmmm, looks like a great game on paper. Should end up being a great game. The Steelers seem to be more pass happy than usual and that may help them against a dinged up Vikings secondary. The issue will be if the Steelers can keep the Williamses and Allen off of Roethlisberger. The Steelers defense hasn't been able to close the door on anyone this season. Winner - Vikings.

New England @ Tampa Bay - This doesn't look good. It seems as though the Patriots found a way to start a fire with two sticks and they are just pouring gas onto the flames. Laurence Maroney found out that he can still run the ball (great news for my fantasy team) and this Patriots team seems to have gotten their swagger back after destroying the Titans last week. Winner - Patriots.

San Francisco @ Houston - Welcome to the league Michael Crabtree. The 49ers need a win this week to get some of their swagger back. Crabtree joins a receiving corp that really needs a big play receiver. I still have no faith in Shaun Hill, so I can't think that this 49er team will go into Houston and beat the Texans. Stranger things have happened. Winner - Texans.

Buffalo @ Carolina - This is finally the week that the Bills realize why they got TO!!! I think I penned that one a few weeks ago and we're still waiting for that moment. The Bills just suck. They have a decent weather game in Carolina but I don't think that they will be able to stop the Panthers' running game. Is Julius Peppers still playing football for the Panthers? Winner - Panthers.

New York Jets @ Oakland - Well, I would normally put 2 and 2 together and get 4 but obviously this didn't work last week. The Jets are coming off of two bad losses and should be more than pissed when they play the Raiders. The Raiders just upset the Eagles last weekend and that prompted Richard Seymour to say that the Raiders will be in the playoffs. I thought the NFL drug tested their players? 2+2=4. Winner - Jets.

Atlanta @ Dallas - This ought to be an interesting game. When your owner says that you need a defining game, that's probably not good. The Falcons come off a big game against the Bears where their defense stepped up. The Falcons get to see that new Dallas Stadium and we'll see if they can get this win. I'm still not sold on Romo. Winner - Falcons.

Chicago @ Cincinnati - This should be an easy win for the Bears, but nothing is easy for them. They'll get a heavy dose of Cedric Benson, but probably more Carson Palmer. The Bears have got to step up and play some offense or at least give Forte a chance to run the ball. A 2.2 yards per carry isn't going to win too many games. Winner - Bengals.

New Orleans @ Miami - Well now the Dolphins get a chance to stop this high powered offense. Their best chance will be to do what they did with the Colts (yeah they still lost but it gave them the best chance to win) and try and keep Drew Brees on the sidelines sipping Gatorade. The wildcat ought to be on stage all day today, but I don't think the Dolphins have enough offense to win. Winner - Saints.

Arizona @ New York Giants - I have to hope that the Giants are prepared for this game. We all know about the Cardinals. Kurt Warner is going to take the ball and in about 6 seconds he'll be 5-7 yards deep, so if you get to that spot, you'll find him and he'll be out of the game. Not sold on the Eli here, so the Giants have got to run the ball. Winner - Giants.

Philadelphia @ Washington - The Eagles killed me last week in fantasy football, so they have to make it up to me. They get a wounded Redskins team with Sherman Lewis calling the plays. Lewis was calling bingo games for the last 5 years until he was asked to come back a few weeks ago to become the offensive coordinator. Tell me if you think that sounds good. I mean, any of it. Winner - Eagles.
