The full slate of Week 7 games is almost finally upon us. Here are final NFL picks for every game played on Sunday and Monday.

It’s crazy to believe that we are already in Week 7 of the NFL season. The injury bug has yet claimed another victim in Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, but instances like this can help show the public what teams are made of. Can the Packers rise up? Can the Jets put a heartbreaking loss against New England behind them and beat the Dolphins? Can the Giants make it two wins in a row? A lot of questions will be answered this week as these final NFL picks will be some interesting ones. Please keep in mind that all lines are supplied by our partner Sports Book Review.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Buffalo Bills (-3)

Tampa comes to Buffalo at 2-3 and with questions at starting quarterback, it looks like the magic is back. Fitzmagic that is. Ryan Fitzpatrick played last week but it looks like Jameis Winston will get the start. Buffalo returns home coming off a bye and at 3-2 they look to stay competitive in the AFC East. I like Tampa because I think they are the better team here. Take the points.

Take Tampa Bay +3

New Orleans Saints vs. Green Bay Packers (+4)

The Packers getting points at home here. I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen that. No Rodgers under center for what looks like the remainder of the season. New Orleans is 3-2 and playing better than most thought. I think that the Packers are going to adapt to Brett Hundley‘s style and make the adjustments. He has been there for a few years and should know the offense. I like the points here.

Take Green Bay +4

Baltimore Ravens vs. Minnesota Vikings (-4.5)

Baltimore has been so inconsistent this season that I find it hard to trust them at all. They beat Oakland but got steamrolled by Jacksonville. Minnesota is coming off a division win against the Aaron Rodgers-less Packers. Case Keenum looks like the better option at quarterback right now and that defense is playing great. I like the Vikings to roll at home Sunday.

Take Minnesota -4.5

Tennessee Titans vs. Cleveland Browns (+6.5)

Cleveland has yet to win a game and I don’t think playing at home here matters. Not much to say here. With Marcus Mariota back take the Titans to cover.

Take Tennessee -6.5

New York Jets vs. Miami Dolphins (-3)

Well, the Jets got robbed last week against the Patriots. The one good thing you can take from that game is that they played well. The Jets stood toe to toe with the defending Super Bowl champs. Miami, however, is coming off an impressive win down in Atlanta. The Phins run game woke up and should pose a problem for the Jets front four which has underperformed thus far this season. Jay Cutler has been up and down so far and is very hard to trust. I like the Jets secondary here.

Take New York +3

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Indianapolis Colts (+3)

No Andrew Luck yet for the Colts means a lack of offense still. The Jags defense has been one of the leagues best so far and I believe that will show this Sunday. I like Sacksonville.

Take Jacksonville -3

Arizona Cardinals vs. Los Angeles Rams (-2) London

Another London game for the NFL and big congratulations to Adrian Peterson becoming the first player to play two games in London in the same season. The Rams coming off a win in Jacksonville last week and are 4-2, quite the surprise. AP dialed back the clock last week and showed that he still has plenty in the tank. He adds another dimension to that offense that they are missing while David Johnson remains out. Truly a toss up here but I’ll still rock with the Rams while they are hot.

Take Los Angeles -2

Carolina Panthers vs. Chicago Bears (+3)

The Bears have been a tough out all season and have given every team they played thus far fits. The Panthers are coming off a bye and are 4-2. Cam Newton has woken up in recent weeks once everyone was starting to doubt him. I do think this is going to be close and I like the points again in this one.

Take Chicago +3

Dallas Cowboys vs. San Fransisco 49ers (+6)

The Cowboys are 2-3 and are coming off a bye. They are a very dangerous team that has yet to hit their stride. With Ezekiel Elliott still at running back for the time being until the NFL decides what to do about this looming suspension, the boys are always going to be in it. On the other hand, the 49ers are 0-6 but their record is a little misleading. A lot of close finishes including the 2 point loss last week at Washington. I like Dallas here after a week off to cover.

Take Dallas -6

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (-5.5)

Man do I have no clue about the Steelers this year. They lost to the Jaguars at home but then last week beat the undefeated Chiefs. With the Bengals coming in off a bye they are well rested and have had an extra week to work things out. They are 2-3 and have looked better in recent weeks. This division game should be a tight contest. I like Pittsburgh.

Take Pittsburgh -5.5

Seattle Seahawks vs. New York Giants (+4.5)

They finally did it! The Giants finally got a win and an impressive one, to say the least. Not many people had them going to Denver and beating up on the Broncos. Now the 3-2 Seahawks are making the cross-country trip to MetLife Stadium. The Giants defense is getting back DRC in the secondary and is coming in with some momentum. It doesn’t take much to make the Seattle offense look bad so I’ll take the points here.

Take New York +4.5

Denver Broncos vs. Los Angeles Chargers (Even)

Well as I just mentioned, the Broncos were embarrassed at home against the Giants and now get a chance to get some revenge against a less than mediocre Chargers team Sunday. The Chargers are however coming off a win in Oakland last week winning by 1. I like that this line is even and think the Broncos win this one and get back on track.

Take Denver Even

Atlanta Falcons vs. New England Patriots (-3.5)

The Super Bowl rematch that cannot come at a worse time for the Atlanta Falcons. They look to have hit a bit of a rough patch losing last week at home to the Dolphins. They are still 3-2 but coming in losing two games in a row. On the other hand, the Patriots are coming off of a win against the Jets which was hard fought but are 4-2 and are starting to separate themselves from the rest of the AFC East. Tom Brady to Rob Gronkowski was automatic last week and should be again Sunday.  I like the Pats here.

Take New England -3.5

Washington Redskins vs. Philadelphia Eagles (-4.5)

The Eagles are red hot right now and are questionably the best team in the NFL. At 5-1, the birds host the Redskins on Monday Night Football. This division game is very meaningful because the Redskins sit at 3-2. The Eagles, however, look great on both ends of the field and don’t look like anyone can contain Carson Wentz anytime soon. Take the Eagles here.

Take Philadelphia -4.5
