Chris Nelson's Week 7 NFL Game Predictions

Chris J. NelsonSenior Writer IOctober 18, 2008

Went .500 on my picks last week. That's not good. Let's try again.

Last week's record: 7-7
Season record: 51-37 (57.9%)

Chargers at Bills - The Bills haven't played very impressive football lately and I still like the Chargers talent. A tough call, but I'm going with San Diego.

Bears over Vikings - The Bears offense looks rejuvenated with Kyle Orton and Matt Forte, and I'm not sure the Vikings' struggling offense can keep up.

Steelers over Bengals - Ryan Fitzpatrick hasn't done anything, so why not at least try Jordan Palmer? None of it matters in this game though, as the Bengals don't really have a chance.

Titans over Chiefs - Without a quarterback and minus Larry Johnson against this defense? No way the Chiefs pull off a win here.

Cowboys over Rams - I don't care who is injured for the Cowboys - they still have no business losing to the Rams.

Dolphins over Ravens - The Dolphins will have a challenge on their hands against a tough Baltimore defense, but I see Miami rattling Joe Flacco enough to pull out a win.

Giants over 49ers - It would surprise me to see the Niners upset here, but I think the Giants rebound from their ugly Monday night performance.

Saints over Panthers - The Panthers really let me down last week against Tampa Bay, while the Saints' already stellar offense is getting healthier.

Texans over Lions - I'm not sure Dan Orlovsky can lead this team to victory.

Colts over Packers - A good matchup, but the Colts have finally caught fire and I think they continue to roll.

Jets over Raiders - Until Al Davis has moved on to the next world, this franchise is screwed.

Redskins over Browns - The Browns finally woke up last week against the Giants, but the Redskins have been more impressive over the length of the season.

Buccaneers over Seahawks - This Seahawks teams is simply too banged up to pull out a win over Tampa Bay.

Broncos over Patriots - Denver's shoddy defense will make things interesting, but I'm not sure how much I believe in the Pats right now.
