It’s hard to believe we are already entering week 7 of the NFL season. Feels just like yesterday that I was watching preseason. But now football is in full swing and talks of the postseason are already popping up.

After six weeks of games, we are left with ONE undefeated team, the Arizona Cardinals, and ONE winless team, the Detroit Lions. Tampa Bay, Green Bay, Buffalo, and Baltimore are all proving to be worth the preseason hype. But teams like Kansas City, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh are all surprisingly struggling this season. Another week of football means another week closer to the playoffs and another chance to earn a spot.

Last Week’s Results

Dad –  12 games right (4-2)

Calli –  11 games right (2-4)

I knew it was too good to last. My winning streak against dad ended this week. This is mainly due to the fact that I picked the Browns over the Cardinals. I should have known better. The Arizona Cardinals came out dominating the whole game and even though I was wrong about the pick, I am glad I was. Because now the Cardinals are going into week 7 still undefeated and an 18-point favorite by sports betting apps to win on Sunday. And thanks to their 6-0 record, DraftKings now has the AZ Cardinals at +1100 to win the Super Bowl. Their Super Bowl odds before the start of the season? +4000.

The Jacksonville Jaguars got their first win in London this weekend, which is what I predicted. That leaves the Detroit Lions as the only winless team in the NFL. I was wrong on the Vikings and Panthers game. But to my defense, I made the pick before I knew Christian McCaffrey was placed on IR.

The biggest shocker in week 6 was the Tennesse Titans beating the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football. Both my dad and I thought the Bills would have no problem. But they didn’t have an answer to stop Derrick Henry, who racked up another game with over 100 rushing yards.

Week 7 Picks

There is only one game that my dad and I disagree on in week 7. And it is again the Panthers game. But this time Dad picked the Panthers over the New York Giants. Yes, I did pick the Giants even though Daniel Jones is playing horribly, only throwing four touchdowns so far AND four interceptions. But, without Christian McCaffrey, I just don’t have much faith in the Panthers.

We both think Cleveland can take care of business without Baker Mayfield, Nick Chubb, and Kareem Hunt. They have plenty of other weapons on both sides of the ball to beat the Denver Broncos night. I just don’t the Denver offense won’t be able to do much against the Browns’ defense.

Week 7 Games To Watch

Week 7 doesn’t offer many exciting games in my opinion. In fact, many of the games could get pretty ugly. As mentioned above, the Arizona Cardinals are an 18-point favorite against the Houston Texans. Even though the game isn’t expected to be close, there are a couple of reasons it is worth watching. First, can the Cardinals remain undefeated and end the week 7-0? Secondly, the Texans are the former team of DeAndre Hopkins and J.J. Watt, so you know both of them will come out hungry.

The Los Angles Rams and the Detroit Lions game is not going to be pretty either. BetMGM has the Rams as a 15-point favorite. This means that the Lions are looking to still remain winless and could head into week 8 with a 0-7 record.

The game that will end up being the closest is probably the Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans game. This is the first time the two have met since the Chiefs beat the Titans in the 2019 AFC Championship. Kansas City was able to stop Henry in that game, limiting him to 69 yards. But this year’s Kansas City defense is a different story, so It might be a challenge to stop Henry this time around.
