NFL 2011 Week 7 Predictions

Not a lot of good games this weekend (as evidenced by our unanimity on six of the thirteen), but two things I'm looking forward to on Sunday: the Browns/Seahawks game is going to be televised (only the second time this season I'll have been able to see the Browns play) and to hold up her end of a deal struck earlier in the week, The Wife has promised to do all the baby-sitting!

Chargers at Jets
The Wife: Jets
Me: Chargers (neither team has looked as good as they did last year)
Steve: Jets

Bears at Bucs
The Wife: Bears
Me: Bears (I watched the big London game last year, thinking it would be cool because it was in London; but on the field, it doesn't really matter . . .)
Steve: Bucs

Redskins at Panthers
The Wife: Panthers
Me: Panthers (what does it say about the 3-2 Redskins that everyone is picking the 1-5 Panthers to win?)
Steve: Panthers

Falcons at Lions
The Wife: Lions
Me: Falcons (be gentle with that handshake, Mike Smith, or Schwartz will go after you!)
Steve: Lions

Seahawks at Browns
The Wife: Seahawks
Me: Browns (the battle of the mediocre!)
Steve: Seahawks

Broncos at Dolphins
The Wife: Broncos
Me: Dolphins (happy if they lose, as long as Tebow gets some points for my fantasy team)
Steve: Broncos

Texans at Titans
The Wife: Titans
Me: Titans (probably the most important game of the week from a playoff perspective, but does anyone care?)
Steve: Texans

Chiefs at Raiders
The Wife: Raiders
Me: Chiefs (even if Palmer starts, he is going to be rusty after sitting on the couch for ten months)
Steve: Raiders

Steelers at Cardinals
The Wife: Steelers
Me: Steelers (think the Cards are wondering if Kevin Kolb was worth all the hubbabaloo?)
Steve: Steelers

Packers at Vikings
The Wife: Packers
Me: Packers (Christian Ponder for the win! Nah, I'm not that desperate to gain ground . . . yet)
Steve: Packers

Rams at Cowboys
The Wife: Cowboys
Me: Cowboys (Josh McDaniels' career is going to keep sliding downwards if he can't get the Rams some points)
Steve: Cowboys

Colts at Saints
The Wife: Saints
Me: Saints (to be fair, Painter hasn't been terrible)
Steve: Saints

Ravens at Jags
The Wife: Ravens
Me: Ravens (Blaine Gabbert gets a chance in front of a Monday Night audience)
Steve: Ravens
