A great week for both competitors in week six, as for the first time this season, Chris Brown and I both had double digit games selected correctly.
However, Chris wasn't able to get the upper hand again as my 12-3 week came out on top. For the season, I now sit at 57-35, while Chris is back above .500 again at 48-44.
As always, we select games straight up, and not for gambling purposes, which last week would be good for those getting in on the Jacksonville and Denver line.
Onto our week seven picks:
Seattle at Arizona
Chris: Seahawks – Arizona does not have what it takes to beat the Seattle defense.
Steven: Seahawks – Seattle's defense gets the national pub, but its offense is top 10 scoring this season.
Tampa Bay at Atlanta
Chris: Falcons – Good rebound week for Atlanta.
Steven: Falcons – When you've scored fewer point than Jacksonville, albeit in one fewer game, you know you're bad still.
St. Louis at Carolina
Chris: Panthers – Carolina is a very underrated team, should win by 14-plus this week.
Steven: Panthers – Carolina is going to play sloppy looking games all season, which would tend to favor St. Louis staying in this one, but I'll stick with the home team.
Cincinnati at Detroit
Chris: Bengals – Its defense is good, should be able to show it in Detroit.
Steven: Bengals – Detroit can score, but against Cincinnati? Yet to be determined.
San Diego at Jacksonville
Chris: Chargers – Think Jacksonville should win a game this year now, but not this week.
Steven: Chargers – The two offenses have similar builds, but San Diego is clearly able to run it more efficiently.
Buffalo at Miami
Chris: Bills – The overtime loss to Cincinnati gives Buffalo plenty of reason for some extra motivation this week.
Steven: Dolphins – I get the feeling you could call this the "Blah Bowl" and no one would disagree.
New England at New York Jets
Chris: Patriots – The Jets turn the ball over too much to do enough damage in this one.
Steven: Patriots – Week seven is entirely too early for a rematch, but New England should play much better in this one, as long as it does rain on them again.
Dallas at Philadelphia
Chris: Cowboys – Michael Vick not playing shouldn't be understated, as Philadelphia will be in this one til the end.
Steven: Eagles – Too much offense for the Cowboys to handle, which has injuries plaguing it all over the field.
Chicago at Washington
Chris: Bears – Washington just isn't good this season.
Steven: Bears – Not sure what to make of Washington, where there has to be something more going on to play this bad.
San Francisco at Tennessee
Chris: 49ers – Should be another close game this week that San Francisco can pull out.
Steven: Titans – Performed as admirably as expected last week in Seattle, and still playing well without Jake Locker.
Cleveland at Green Bay
Chris: Packers – Cleveland's hopes just seem to be going down with Brandon Weeden this season.
Steven: Packers – Down some receivers, Aaron Rodgers still has Jordy Nelson to make any throw and catch needed.
Houston at Kansas City
Chris: Chiefs – Houston is probably out of the AFC playoff hunt.
Steven: Chiefs – I'll keep riding the train for now, but Kansas City needs to find some offense to continue its success.
Baltimore at Pittsburgh
Chris: Ravens – Pittsburgh's win felt a bit on the luck side after some bad play.
Steven: Ravens – Baltimore is just average this season. Nothing wrong with it this week, as Pittsburgh is well below.
Denver at Indianapolis
Chris: Broncos – Would feel better about the chance Indianapolis has in this one if it had been a better Monday night performance.
Steven: Colts – Everything about the pregame is going to be unforgettable for the fans. Everything after that about the game will feel even better.
Minnesota at New York Giants
Chris: Giants – This might be among Tom Coughlin's last stand as head coach if he doesn't get it done this week.
Steven: Giants – Surprised Chris went with New York as well. A quarterback that doesn't know the system isn't a good sign for anyone to win. One for the Giants finally isn't the sign things are right there either.
