You might notice that I did not highlight the teams on a bye. Typically, the bye week is seen as a small 'victory,' because it gives teams a chance to regroup and rest up any injuries they might have, thus all teams should probably be highlighted. Wrong. All four of these teams are coming off big week 6 victories. Therefore, the bye week is killing their respective buzz and serves as a "loss" in my book. No highlighting for them.
Anyway, in my life, I am about 87% accurate in predicting NFL games, so I'm pretty sure I'll be pretty close to that number again this week. Go Lions.
Chip's Week 7 Picks
There are a few no brainer picks this week. First off, the Steelers over the Bengals is an easy call because Ryan Fitzpatrick, a Harvard graduate, is starting at quarterback for Cincinnati. While Harvard pumps out Nobel Prize winners, it certainly does not pump out winning quarterbacks. Other no brainers: Tennessee, New York Giants, Tampa Bay, and of course Detroit.
There are also a couple games that could go either way, but I've channeled my Cleo abilities and picked them all correctly. Buffalo will finally get the respect they deserve after beating up on the Chargers at home. Miami will continue their sudden turnaround by beating the suddenly punchless Ravens, and the Matt Cassel Era in New England will continue to resemble the Joey Harrington Era in Detroit on Monday night when the Broncos beat the Pats.
