A banner week for Harv! 10 correct winners picked out of the 14 NFL games played. Can I follow that up with another successful forecast? That answer comes at you next!
Seattle at San Francisco: Week seven kicks off Thursday night with what should be a very intriguing game. 49ers 24 Seahawks 21.
Buffalo at Jacksonville: Across the pond as they say…9:30 kickoff eastern time. Jaguars are just fodder for the rest of the NFL. Bills 34 Jaguars 21.
Tampa Bay at Washington: Two undefined teams heading nowhere. Redskins 33 Bucs 30.
Atlanta at Tennessee: Being at home won’t help. Falcons 30 Titans 13.
New Orleans at Indianapolis: As they lick their wounds, Colts rebound. Colts 37 Saints 17.
Minnesota at Detroit: Some say Lions got lucky but what does it matter now? Lions 24 Vikings 20.
Pittsburgh at Kansas City: You’ll have to wait for my preview! For now, the Steelers sport a 4-2 record with games looming ahead against the Browns and Bengals twice and a rematch with the Baltimore Ravens. With the halfway mark coming next week, Pittsburgh’s final games are as follows:
Cincinnati next week in Pittsburgh; Raiders at home; Cleveland at home; at Seattle; the Colts at Heinz Field; on the road in Bengals town; Denver at Pitt; the Ravens for a second time in Baltimore; and the season ends once again with the Cleveland Browns this year on their turf. How do I see the finish? Either 10-6 or 9-7. This all rides I believe on those two Cincinnati games and the game with Denver. Those will be the pivotal contests.
Cleveland at St. Louis: This game could go either way. Rams 24 Browns 23.
Houston at Miami: The dirty defense of Miami wins out. Dolphins 31 Texans 21.
New York at New England: I’d be out of my mind to pick the Jets in New England. Patriots 37 Jets 16.
Oakland at San Diego: Can the Chargers find a way to win? Hard game to pick given how Oakland has played thus far. The string of bad luck games for the ‘Bolts ends. Chargers 35 Raiders 31.
Dallas at New York Giants: A huge NFC East game goes to Eli as there will be no Manning-Romo showdown. Giants 27 Cowboys 21.
Philadelphia at Carolina: Will the Panthers remain unbeaten at home? Something tells me yes. Panthers 17 Eagles 13.
Baltimore at Arizona: A Monday night matchup that was probably thought of to be a real barn burner in the preseason as no one in the league scheduling office thought Baltimore would be 1-5 at this point. Make that 1-6 come Tuesday morning. Cardinals 36 Ravens 17.
So there it is. Week seven’s picks are in the books minus a Steelers prediction that comes in the Pittsburgh/Kansas City preview this week. City of Champions always welcomes comments so if you’ve read something that makes you stir, don’t hold back, let us hear what you have to say!
