NFL predictions: Week 7

By Jeremy Weiner, Alex Teal and Kendell Sweeney-Thomas

Matt Hasselbeck could lead the Seahawks to a win this week.

There was some disagreeing here this week: Which one of us went against the Patriots? Enjoy our picks, and send us some of your own.

 Cincinnati Bengals @ Atlanta Falcons

Jeremy: Atlanta Falcons
Kendell: Atlanta Falcons
Alex: Cincinnati Bengals
Kendell: Both of these teams can be extremely dangerous if they can follow their game plans correctly. Both of these teams can be extremely ineffective if they stray from their game plans and can’t execute.

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Miami Dolphins

Jeremy: Pittsburgh Steelers
Kendell: Miami Dolphins
Alex: Pittsburgh Steelers
Jeremy: The Dolphins have been playing exceptionally well on the road. The Pittsburgh Steelers are not a team to mess with since the return of Big Ben. Steelers will have the easy win.

 Buffalo Bills @ Baltimore Ravens

Jeremy: Baltimore Ravens
Kendell: Baltimore Ravens
Alex: Baltimore Ravens
Kendell: The Ravens are the better team in Week 7 and find redemption for a close loss against the Patriots last week.

 Jacksonville Jaguars @ Kansas City Chiefs

Jeremy: Kansas City Chiefs
Kendell: Kansas City Chiefs
Alex: Kansas City Chiefs
Jeremy:  Jacksonville is in a steady decline. Kansas City lost their last two, and their home crowd won’t allow them to lose another.

Cleveland Browns @ New Orleans Saints

Jeremy: New Orleans Saints
Kendell: New Orleans Saints
Alex: New Orleans Saints
Kendell: The Saints will run all over the Browns this week due to their superior offense. Look for the Saints to put a lot of points on the board.

 Washington Redskins @ Chicago Bears

Jeremy: Washington Redskins
Kendell: Chicago Bears
Alex: Chicago Bears
Jeremy: Washington has yet to play a bad game. Every game seems to be a close one. Chicago getting Jay Cutler back will help, but will his offensive line protect?

San Francisco 49ers @ Carolina Panthers

Jeremy:  San Francisco 49ers
Kendell: San Francisco 49ers
Alex: San Francisco 49ers
Kendell: The Panthers can’t buy a win and the Niners really need this one to keep the idea of a winning season alive. Close game but a win for San Francisco.

 St. Louis Rams @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Jeremy: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Kendell: St. Louis Rams
Alex: St. Louis Rams
Jeremy: St. Louis has continued to prove to the league that they’re a team to watch out for. Tampa Bay gets right back on the winning track, though, and gets a big win.

 Philadelphia Eagles @ Tennessee Titans

Jeremy: Tennessee Titans
Kendell: Tennessee Titans
Alex: Philadelphia Eagles
Jeremy: Tennessee has one of the top defenses in the NFL. Kevin Kolb will make one more start before Michael Vick takes over. He’ll want to impress, but he will be denied.

 Arizona Cardinals @ Seattle Seahawks

Jeremy: Seattle Seahawks
Kendell: Seattle Seahawks
Alex: Seattle Seahawks
Alex: Matt Hasselbeck builds off a big week as Seahawks use the “12th Man” and pick up a nice win at home.

New England Patriots @ San Diego Chargers

Jeremy: New England Patriots
Kendell: San Diego Chargers
Alex: New England Patriots
Kendell: The Chargers need this win over a big AFC name to redeem themselves and gain back the momentum they’ve had in previous weeks.

 Oakland Raiders @ Denver Broncos

Jeremy: Denver Broncos
Kendell: Denver Broncos
Alex: Denver Broncos
Alex: Can Denver be a potential playoff team? They’ll prove it Sunday.

Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers

Jeremy: Minnesota Vikings
Kendell: Minnesota Vikings
Alex: Minnesota Vikings
Jeremy: Pay attention: Minnesota won’t be losing the rest of their games. They needed that win, and now their eyes are set on the Super Bowl.

New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys

Jeremy: Dallas Cowboys
Kendell: New York Giants
Alex: Dallas Cowboys
Kendell: As we’ve seen in previous weeks, the Cowboys cannot deal with pressure. That will be evident every time Tony Romo gets sacked by the tenacious defensive line of the Giants. The Giants win in convincing fashion and continue their good season.
