Last week I went 8-6, which has me re-evaluating my schemes, something Mike Martz should consider in Chicago as well. My year to date total is 49-41 which is not impressive, unless of course I was located in the AFC West. Here are my picks for week 7.
Falcons over the Bengals- Atlanta plays very well at home, while the Bengals continue to be a mystery. Another loss for Cincy could turn them into team turmoil. Falcons 24-14
Steelers over the Dolphins- Many are predicting this game to be low scoring, but for some reason I can see some points being scored. Taking Big Ben over Henne in a shootout. Steelers 31-27
Ravens over the Bills- This game is over before it even started. Ravens 31-7
Chiefs over the Jaguars- The Chiefs are much improved and will be playing a team that could be starting Todd Bouman at quarterback. Todd who? Exactly. Chiefs 21-3
Saints over the Browns- Browns rookie quarterback Colt McCoy gets thrown to the wolves again, and the result will be the same. There is a chance Darren Sharper will return to action for the Saints, which will definitely improve the secondary play. Saints 28-13
Redskins over the Bears- Donovan McNabb returns home, while Chicago offensive coordinator Mike Martz might soon be searching for a new one. Redskins 24-17
49ers over the Panthers- Carolina is competing with the Bills for the #1 pick in the 2011 draft. This could be an ugly game to watch. 49ers 20-10
Rams over the Buccaneers- The Rams continue to improve as they beat the Chargers last week. The Bucs are starting to show some warts, so will take a shot with St. Louis. Rams 21-20
Eagles over the Titans- The Titans quarterback situation is somewhat shaky as both Vince Young and Kerry Collins are banged up. Will take the Eagles in a very close game. Eagles 24-21
Seahawks over the Cardinals- Seattle is a tough place to play making things even tougher for Arizona’s rookie quarterback Max Hall. Seahawks 17-7
Chargers over the Patriots- The Chargers have to bounce back at some point right? I have zero confidence in Norv Turner, but just have a feeling about this game and of course enjoy rooting against the Patriots. Chargers 27-21
Broncos over the Raiders- Oakland could be starting Kyle Boller at quarterback. Enough said. Broncos 28-6
Vikings over the Packers- Green Bay is banged up and will be facing a Viking team desperate for a victory to get back into the division race. As much as I hate to admit it, Favre tends to shine when he is facing some adversity. Vikings 24-21
Giants over the Cowboys- Big Blue would love for nothing more than to put the final nail in the Cowboys season. Let the firings begin in Dallas. Giants 27-17
The New York Jets (5-1) are a on a bye this week and will take on the Green Bay Packers next Sunday at the New Meadowlands Stadium.
Enjoy week 7 everyone!
