2014 NFL Picks - Week #7

Peyton Manning Denver Broncos Autographed 16" x 20" Vertical Orange Uniform Throw PhotographI’m changing things up a little bit this week with our NFL picks. This week I'm providing different NFL picking categories than we've had in previous weeks.

Week #7 started with a bang as we witnessed a thrilling and competitive Thursday night game in which the New England Patriots hung on to defeat the lowly New York Jets 27-25.

The big takeaway from Thursday night’s game is that “Pick Six” Geno Smith didn’t throw an interception. That was the first game in seven starts that Geno didn’t throw a pick. He now has seven touchdowns and seven interceptions.

I’m hopeful that the rest of week seven will bring more excitement to NFL fans.
Now on to this week’s NFL picks.

NFL East Showdown – New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys

This is a showdown between NFC East rivals.

Dallas is on a roll. They’ve won five games in a row and are tied for first in the NFC East with the Philadelphia Eagles. They are playing good football and they don’t seem to have many weaknesses.

Dallas may be re-identifying itself as an NFC power house. Maybe this is the start of something special for Tony Romo.

New York has had an up and down season and things are going to get worse for them in week #7. After starting the season on terrible note the Giants seemed get into gear winning three straight before being destroyed by the Eagles last week.

The Giants are in a tough spot. For the second straight week they are playing a divisional opponent. This game is huge and the Giants will either be able right the ship or will become a non-player in the East.

Dallas wins 31-9.

Record Seeker – San Francisco 49ers at Denver Broncos

The 49ers have been on a roll the past few weeks but they are playing a formidable opponent and one of the greatest QBs ever to play the game (Peyton Manning). Manning is only three TDs away from setting the record for the most TD passes.

Peyton has been averaging three TDs per game and I don’t think he’ll be stopped very often on Sunday night.

Peyton will get his record but what about winning? This will be Peyton’s night and he will do it in front of Broncos fans. This will be a celebration of Peyton Manning.

Denver wins 35-24.

Boredom in Washington - Tennessee Titans at Washington Football Team

Let's face it, the Titans are a terrible football team and they're going nowhere fast. They barely beat the Jaguars last week. They're lucky they play another terrible team this week but will they win?

Washington is the worst team in the NFC East. While they have shown flashes of good play, the team stinks to the bottom of the heap.

What does Washington have going for them? They're at home and they face the Titans.

Washington wins 13-9.

Rebound of the Week - Seattle Seahawks at St. Louis Rams

After a tough loss at home to the Dallas Cowboys, look for the Seahawks to rebound and take out their anger and disappointment on the Rams.

The Rams haven't shown that they can play four quarters of goof football. They are bound to have one lousy half where their opponent can take advantage of them.

Seattle wins 31-13.

Monday Night Football Snoozer - Houston Texans at Pittsburgh Steelers

This might be the worst Monday night matchup of the season. Pittsburgh is in disarray and haven't shown their fans that they're capable of playing good football this season.

After Monday Night's game, if the fans are still awake from the mess they saw on the field, they will want this season to end quickly.

Houston wins 24-3.

Season totals: W-21 L-9.
