Titans To Down Steelers While The Bills Rebound Against The Hapless Jets
There’s a few things we know as the NFL moves onto its Week 7 games.
Derrick Henry is a beast and the Titans need to #feedthebeast, the Cowboys are struggling not just without Dak Prescott but also (apparently) with the new coaching staff, the 49ers are pretty powerful when Jimmy Garoppolo is healthy, the NFC East is terrible and the Jets still stink.
With all that in mind, here are my picks for this week’s games, along with an analysis of why I picked these winners and losers.

|14||Chicago Bears||Los Angeles Rams||CHI (visitor)||4|
New York Giants at Philadelphia – Surely the Eagles can win this one at home, against the “surging” Giants. Surging meaning they aren’t getting blown out anymore.
Pittsburgh at Tennessee – Feed the Beast, Vabrel, and the team will be fine.
Detroit at Atlanta – Look for a high-scoring game in which the Lions will score more than the Falcons.
Cleveland at Cincinnati – It’s kind of a coin toss as to which bad Ohio team will win this one.
Green Bay at Houston – After a terrible week, Aaron Rodgers usually bounces back well the next week.
Carolina at New Orleans – This won’t be breeze for Drew, but it should be a Saints victory.
Buffalo at NY Jets – The boys from Buffalo got pounded in their last game but the bungling boys from New York will help them recover.
Dallas at Washington – Even an injured Cowboys team can surely beat that team from Washington. On a related note, you can be in a sweet suite at Jerry’s World for this game in Dallas on Thanksgiving Day. Click here to find out how.
Seattle at Arizona – Derrick Henry’s running mate at Alabama, Kenyan Drake, ran wild on the Dallas D, but that and the other success the Cards had against the Cowboys won’t translate against the Seahawks.
Jacksonville at LA Chargers – It’s time for the Chargers to make their annual charge toward finishing one game out of the playoffs.
Kansas City at Denver – This is a mismatch.
San Francisco at New England – The 49ers seem to be back in stride with a healthy quarterback, the one Bill Belichick wanted to keep in New England to replace Brady and was overruled by management.
Tampa Bay at Las Vegas. Okay, messed up last week on the Bucs. I should have known Tom Brady would not lose two games in a row. He may not lose this one, but I just have a feeling the Raiders are going to get the W. Maybe it’s because I’m following a Raiderette on Twitter.
Chicago at LA Rams – The Bears have little offense but neither do the Rams when they face a good defensive team. Plus, I picked the Bears so I can cheer for them in case my Chicago friends drag me out to the bar to watch this Monday Night Football game.
