Week 7 NFL Picks: Packers Roll, One Writer Picks Denver to Fall

New, comments

In our picks for week 7, only one writer predicts that one of the NFL's two remaining unbeaten teams will fall.

That's right, the last time the Colts and Broncos played, Manning started for Indy and Tebow was backing up Kyle Orton in Denver.

Week 7 in the NFL features a handful of great games...and a bunch of ugly ones. In all likelihood, the best game will be on Sunday night when Peyton Manning returns to Indianapolis as a member of the Denver Broncos. Not surprisingly, most of our writers picked Denver to win - in fact all but one solitary soul, who has decided that he needs to get back up from the bottom of the leaderboard by going against the grain.

There are actually a surprising number of games this week that feature two teams with records of .500 or better. ackers' game against Cleveland is one of them, as well as Seattle at Arizona (Thursday night), Cincinnati at Detroit, New England at the New York Jets, Dallas at Philadelphia, San Francisco at Tennessee, and obviously Denver-Indianapolis.

Here are our picks for this week, and don't forget to head over the the FanPosts to take part in the community Pick'em contest!

That's right, I'm all alone on two games, picking the Rams and Colts. Tony went out on a limb as well, as he was the only person to pick the Vikings to beat the Giants on the road and the Bills to defeat the Dolphins. Meanwhile, Eric picked the Steelers to upset the Ravens at home.

Week 6 was good to everyone, as the favorites won most of the games. In fact. everyone on the staff finished with a record of 10-5 or better. That's great...except weekly bottom-dweller Tex was 5 games over .500 and still couldn't gain any ground.
