NFL Week 7

My record last week: 8-6 (ouch)

A great game in Pittsburgh with the undefeated Vikings coming to town. Can the Raiders keep their streak going against the struggling Sanchez? It'll be fun to see what happens with the two games in Texas this week. Lets get it on!

Green Bay at Cleveland 1:00 PM FOX

The Packers final tuneup before another 'Favre week'. I think it'll be the same. Big yards from A-Rodge and a few too many sacks.

Packers 28, Browns 13

San Diego at Kansas City 1:00 PM CBS

The Chargers will and need to get back on track with this one.

Chargers 21, Chiefs 17

Indianapolis at St. Louis 1:00 PM CBS

Another bye week for Manning and Co.

Colts 31, Rams 17

Minnesota at Pittsburgh 1:00 PM FOX

One of the best games of the week. My first thought was this being a close game. But my instincts are telling me a two-touchdown victory for the winner (for some reason..I really don't know). I'll take the 6-0 Minni with the upset.

Vikings 31, Steelers 17

New England at Tampa Bay 1:00 PM CBS

It definitely will not be snowing this time.

Patriots 27, Bucs 13

San Francisco at Houston 1:00 PM FOX

An interesting game. How will the Niners respond from getting pounded on? I think the Texans are playing too well right now even though I think they play better away from home. Rookie wide receiver Crabtree starting this game.

Texans 21, Niners 17

Buffalo at Carolina 4:05 PM CBS

I'm thinking the Bills might be able to squeak another one out.

Bills 24, Panthers 17

NY Jets at Oakland 4:05 PM CBS

Nice win for the Raiders last week. I'm not sure if Sanchez is ready to get out of his slump. He may be too conservative this game. I'll take Oakland with the upset.

Raiders 17, Jets 10

Atlanta at Dallas 4:15 PM FOX

Hmmm. I like Atlanta, but Dallas will make it a game coming at home. But I still like Atlanta.

Atlanta 31, Dallas 24

Chicago at Cincinnati 4:15 PM FOX

No more hangover.

Bengals 31, Bears 24

New Orleans at Miami 4:15 PM FOX

Miami may surprise the Saints.

Saints 27, Miami 24

Arizona at NY Giants 8:20 PM NBC

The Giants should win at home.

Giants 31, Cardinals 20

Philadelphia at Washington 8:30 PM

The Skin's may have a shot at this one considering what the Eagles accomplished last week.

Eagles 17, Redskins 16

·Bye: Denver, Detroit, Tennessee, Seattle, Jacksonville, Baltimore
