PICK ‘EM and SURVIVOR: Week 7

Top 5 Pick ‘Em

Season Record: 17-13

Minnesota -2.5 (@ Philadelphia) –  The Vikings have been rolling to an undefeated record through the first five weeks. They come out of their bye and head to Philadelphia to face a struggling and banged up Eagles team.

San Diego +6.5 (@ Atlanta) –  Despite the Chargers injury-riddled secondary, they are still the 12th ranked defense in the league while the Falcons are barely edging out the Browns and Saints. Look for this game to be high scoring and close.

New England -7.5 (@ Pittsburgh) –  This would have been one of the most anticipated games of the year if Ben Roethlisberger were playing. Unfortunately, we are in store for another Patriots romping. Landry Jones has been wildly unimpressive in his limited playing time.

Baltimore (0) (@ New York Jets) –  Enter Geno Smith. Joe Flacco missed practice and is questionable for this weekend, but the Ravens 6th ranked defense in the league will be able to take care of business.

San Francisco +2.5 (vs. Tampa Bay) – Aside from the fluke win in Week 1 against the Falcons, the Buccaneers haven’t shown they can realistically beat any team. Are we looking at a repeat of the last time they traveled to the west coast? (Week 2 vs. Arizona)

Cincinnati (vs. Cleveland) – 40% of picks are with the Bengals this week. As always, going against the popular pick provides a huge opportunity.
