Jeremy Sneed’s NFL Week 7 Picks

Thursday Night Football 7:25
Chicago Bears (1-5) @ Green Bay Packers (3-2)
-I really wish I could pick my Chicago Bears this week. I know that the Packers offense this season has not like typical Packer offense. I think Aaron Rodgers will get his confidence against the rival Bears and lead the Packers to a victory.
Final Score: 31-16

Sunday Morning Game (In London) 8:30 AM
New York Giants (3-3) @ Los Angeles Rams (3-3)
-This is the second game to be played in London this season. Now, this is not an easy game to pick. The Giants got a much needed win thanks to 222 yards and two touchdowns from Odell Beckham Jr., but the Rams also played very well in their loss against the Lions. I think the Rams are going to build off of that loss and take down the Giants in London.
Final Score: 27-23

Sunday Noon Games
New Orleans Saints (2-3) @ Kansas City Chiefs (3-2)
-The Saints were able to hold off a late surge from the Panthers offense and they improved to 2-3. The Chiefs defense was able to hold the explosive Raiders offense to just 10 points. I think the Chiefs defense will lead them to another victory this week against the Saints.
Final Score: 24-17.

Indianapolis Colts (2-4) @ Tennessee Titans (3-3)
-Marcus Mariota has looked amazing the last two weeks and I think he will continue his dominance this week against the Colts. I do think the Colts are going to make it close, I just think the Titans have more momentum on their side than the Colts.
Final Score: 36-31

Minnesota Vikings (5-0) @ Philadelphia Eagles (3-2)
-This is going to be a very emotional game as this will be Sam Bradford’s return to Philly. The Vikings are also coming off of a bye week. The Eagles have now lost two in a row and Carson Wentz is starting to play like a rookie quarterback. I think the Vikings will do everything they can to get Bradford a win and that is my pick: Vikings.
Final Score: 23-12

Cleveland Browns (0-6) @ Cincinnati Bengals (2-4)
-The Browns are a team that shouldn’t be winless. They have a couple opportunities to win games but have just fallen through. The Bengals are coming in at just 2-4 and are desperate for a win. As much as I would love to pick the Browns this week, I think the Bengals will get the win.
Final Score: 27-24

Washington Redskins (4-2) @ Detroit Lions (3-3)
-The Lions pulled off a close win last week against the Rams and in there three wins they have won by a combined total of 8 points. I think the Redskins are clicking on all cylinders and this will be a tough game for the Lions to win. So my pick is for the Redskins to win their 5th straight game.
Final Score: 34-27

Oakland Raiders (4-2) @ Jacksonville Jaguars (2-3)
-The Raiders got blown out by Kansas City last week, and the Jaguars came back from a 13-0 deficit to beat the Bears. When it comes to predicting this matchup, I think it comes down to offense and the Raiders offense is better than the Jaguars. I think the Raiders will bounce back and get a big road win.
Final Score: 42-24

Buffalo Bills (4-2) @ Miami Dolphins (2-4)
-The Dolphins benefitted last week by Ben Roethlisberger being banged up and the offense being in shambles. I think they will face a much tougher test this week with the Bills who have won four straight games. I think the Bills will be victorious in this matchup and improve to 5-2.
Final Score: 29-23

Baltimore Ravens (3-3) @ New York Jets (1-5)
-Joe Flacco is dealing with a shoulder injury, and the Jets will start Geno Smith in this game. I am going to go out on a limb and give my upset pick of the week to the New York Jets.
Final Score: 20-13

Sunday Afternoon Games 3:05
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-3) @ San Francisco 49ers (1-5)
-Colin Kaepernick returned to the starting quarterback role for the 49ers last week, but they got destroyed by the Bills 45-16. I think the 49ers are going to upset the Buccaneers this week and Kaepernick will bounce back and have a great game back at home.
Final Score: 24-21

San Diego Chargers (2-4) @ Atlanta Falcons (4-2)
-The Chargers were able to pull off a big upset win against the Broncos last Thursday night. I think their luck will run this week, however, when they travel to Atlanta to face the Falcons. I think the Falcons offense will be too much for the Chargers to handle.
Final Score: 35-17

Sunday Afternoon Game 3:25
New England Patriots (5-1) @ Pittsburgh Steelers (4-2)
-This game is very easy to pick because Ben Roethlisberger will be out and Landry Jones will start. The offense does not look nearly the same without Big Ben, and I think the Patriots will stuff everything the Steelers try to do offensively. I think the Patriots win and win big.
Final Score: 45-14

Sunday Night Football 7:30
Seattle Seahawks (4-1) @ Arizona Cardinals (3-3)
-This by far the most difficult game to pick this week because it is hard to count out the Cardinals. Sadly, I think the Seahawks will come through and pull off a big road win to improve to 5-1.
Final Score: 23-20

Monday Night Football 7:30
Houston Texans (4-2) @ Denver Broncos (4-2)
-Like Sam Bradford, Houston’s Brock Osweiler is returning to his former team. This one has a bit more emotion behind it as the Broncos weren’t too happy with how Osweiler left. However, the Texans are somehow 4-2 and playing some pretty good football. I think, because this game is in Denver, that Osweiler’s return will be spoiled and the Broncos will win this game. Final Score: 34-26
