NFL Picks: 2014 Week Number Seven


We fell back to the pack last week with our NFL picks package. A 1-2 record brought the overall season mark to 9-9. It’s been an up and down year so far, but press on with this week’s group, the NFL picks package for week number seven. Here we go!

Game one. The Titans head to Washington to face Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins. The Redskins have been installed as six point favorites in this one. The Redskins enter this one with a record of 1-5, while the Titans haven’t been much better at 2-4.

In this one, I am not expecting a lot out of the Titans, but I may be expecting less out of the Redskins. Kirk Cousins has had a rough go of it the last few weeks, throwing five touchdowns vs seven interceptions in the last three weeks. The pressure has been on Alfred Morris, who hasn’t rushed for more than 80 yards since week number two. The Redskins don’t do enough in this one to beat the spread. Take the Titans and the points.

Game two of the NFL picks takes us to Jacksonville, Florida. The surprising Cleveland Browns head into town to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Browns are surprising the league under new coach Mike Pettine, riding a high at 3-2 off of a dominating win over the Pittsburgh Steelers last week. The Jaguars reside in the basement of the league at 0-6, scoring only 81 points over the six games. The Browns are six point favorites.

This one is an easy one. The Browns have won or been in every game they have played, and the Jaguars stink. Take the Browns and the points.

We head to big D for the final game in the picks for this week. It’s an NFC East rivalry game as the Giants take on the riding high Dallas Cowboys. The Boys are about as hot of a team as there is in football, coming off a 26-20 victory over the defending champion Seahawks and tied for the NFC East lead with a record of 5-1. The Giants come in at 3-3 after being shutout last week by the Philadelphia Eagles. The Cowboys are 6.5 point favorites.

Call this one a hunch, but I think Tom Coughlin is going to have his team mad, and ready to play coming off the thrashing against the Eagles. Call it a hunch, but I believe that the Cowboys win a close one. So take the Giants and the points.

So there you have the picks for week number seven: Redskins +6 Browns -6 Giants +6.5
