After six weeks of NFL football, there are just three undefeated teams left, the Pittsburgh Steelers, Tennessee Titans, and Seattle Seahawks, a few (like the now Dak-less Dallas Cowboys) decimated with injuries, and the rest mostly trying to figure out how to play the sport they love under such restricted and almost crowd-less conditions.

That said, there have been some incredible football played in 2020, including some of the most productive offenses in the history of the sport, with certain top-notch quarterbacks – like Aaron Rodgers, GOAT Tom Brady, quarterback Patrick Mahomes, Russell Wilson, and others – showing off skills that are keeping fans tuned in.

Expect even more excitement in Week 7, with four teams having a bye week and the rest getting ready to crack helmets again for the win, and we provide predictions, picks, and spreads for them all right here, every week.

New York Giants vs Philadelphia Eagles (-3.5)

How to watch: TNF, 8:20 PM EST, FOX, NFLN

The NFC East is the weakest division in the NFL right now, its four teams with five total win among them, with two of those victories attributed to these two franchises, the New York Giants currently 1-5 and led by young QB Daniel Jones, who has thrown twice as many interceptions (6) as touchdowns (3) so far in 2020.

The Philadelphia Eagles are in just as bad a shape as the Giants, entering this matchup at 1-4-1 with Carson Wentz under center, right now with a completion percentage of just 58.7 having thrown more interceptions (9) than touchdowns (8) during the six games he’s played in this season.

Tough choice between these two NFC East basement dwellers, but given this matchup is predicted to be close, choose the team with the veteran QB who will most likely figure out their offense as the season progresses, especially against teams with struggling defenses like the Giants.

Take a look at our full preview of Giants vs Eagles with predictions, picks, and odds.

Pick:

Eagles -3.5   (-110)

Detroit Lions vs Atlanta Falcons (-2.5)

How to watch: Sunday, October 25, 1:00 PM ET, FOX

The Detroit Lions easily took care of the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6 by a score of 34-16, relying on the steady rushing attack of rookie RB D’Andre Swift, who had 14 carries for 116 yards and 2 touchdowns, his best game of the season so far and a sign that QB Matthew Stafford could get some serious help from out of the backfield.

Under interim head coach Raheem Morris, the Falcons finally got their first 2020 win, this over the hapless Minnesota Vikings by a score of 40-23, with QB Matt Ryan putting in a good day’s work with 30 completions for 371 yards and four touchdowns (two of those to WR Julio Jones) and zero interceptions, a sign that this Atlanta team is not dead just yet.

The Atlanta Falcons are actually favored in this one and it might be a good idea to consider how much talent they have, and if their new head coach has found a way to convert that to wins, this should be a relative walk in the park for them at home.

Pick:

Falcons -2.5   (-110)

Cleveland Browns (-3) vs Cincinnati Bengals

How to watch: Sunday, October 25, 1:00 PM ET, CBS

The Cleveland Browns are talented, but in Week 6 they got smoked by their divisional rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers, by a score of 7-38, their second loss, both to AFC North teams, so this Week 7 divisional matchup with the weaker Bengals becomes a must-win if they expect to have a winning season and somehow (finally) make it to the playoffs.

The Cincinnati Bengals did everything they could to win in Week 6 against the favored Colts, including taking a 21-0 lead to start the game, but their defense could not hold and they took their fourth loss, 27-31, though their rookie quarterback Joe Burrow has shown that (with a decent front line) he will be able to succeed at the NFL level.

This game is by no means a gimme for the Browns, but they should be able to cover this slender spread and take home their fifth win and first divisional victory, though Burrow might make it tough for that to happen.

Pick:

Browns -3   (-110)

Pittsburgh Steelers (-2) vs Tennessee Titans

How to watch: Sunday, October 25, 1:00 PM ET, CBS

In Week 6, the Pittsburgh Steelers completely neutralized the Cleveland Browns, who had the top run game in the NFL, and their pass rush put the opposing quarterback Baker Mayfield on edge with 4 sacks, so expect them to come at the Titans on both sides of the ball and make it tough for Derrick Henry to carry the game on his back alone.

The Titans are firing on all cylinders right now, undefeated with an effective QB in Ryan Tannehill (Week 6: 30/41, 364yds, 4 TDs, 1 INT) and RB Derrick Henry (Week 6: 22 carries, 212 yards, 2 TDs), and now Tennessee will need that power on both sides of the ball to outscore this Steelers team with the killer pass rush.

This game is essentially a wash between the Steelers’ D and the Titans’ O, so pick your poison and hope the other team doesn’t catch fire, but for now our choice is the Tennessee Titans, who have actually beaten at least one good team, the Buffalo Bills, unlike the Steelers who have mostly picked on losers.

Pick:

Titans +2   (-112)

Carolina Panthers vs New Orleans Saints (-7.5)

How to watch: Sunday, October 25, 1:00 PM ET, FOX

The 3-3 Panthers are now at .500 after losing in Week 6 to the Bears, with QB Teddy Bridgewater having a tough outing that included two interceptions and just 216 passing yards with no touchdowns, and the team’s best runner in the injured Christian McCaffery’s absence, Mike Davis, with 18 carries for 52 yards and a touchdown.

The New Orleans Saints are well rested coming off a Week 6 bye, their last game a Week 5 win on Monday Night Football over the Chargers by a score of 30-27 in overtime, and now QB Drew Brees should be ready to get back to business and take care of these struggling Panthers at home in front of their Louisiana 25 percent capacity crowd.

Take the Saints in this one, though it might be close given the spread is so wide, but Brees is ready to take his team on their post-bye run towards the playoffs.

Pick:

Saints -7.5   (-110)

Buffalo Bills (-13.5) vs New York Jets

How to watch: Sunday, October 25, 1:00 PM ET, CBS

The Buffalo Bills were handed their second loss of the season by last year’s Super Bowl Champs, the Kansas City Chiefs, by a score of 17-26 on Monday Night Football last week, with their young QB Josh Allen having a poor outing, posting 14 completions for 122 yards and two touchdowns with an interception, numbers he should improve in Week 7 against this horrible Jets defense.

Multiple hot seats have formed in the New York Jets organization, the main one being under head coach Adam Gase, who can’t seem to make this winless Jets team any good, though injuries and a pretty tough schedule haven’t helped much either, so expect this Bills team to keep the Jets’ losing streak going.

This one will most likely not be pretty, with the Bills taking out any frustrations they may currently have from their MNF loss on this poor Jets team that seems to be waiting for the next NFL draft to begin.

Pick:

Bills -13.5  (-114)

Dallas Cowboys (-1) vs Washington Football Team

How to watch: Sunday, October 25, 1:00 PM ET, FOX

It was not a pretty Monday Night Football for the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6 without their QB Dak Prescott, who is out for the season with an ankle injury, and now they are led by backup Andy Dalton, who threw two picks and couldn’t get the Cowboys offense going at all in a blowout 10-38 MNF loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

The Washington Football team earned their fifth loss in Week 6 and gave the Giants their first win of the season, this Washington team still offensively shaky with Kyle Allen under center, the young QB posting 31 completions for 280 yards and an interception in that loss, though he could thrive a bit better in Week 7 against a Cowboys defense currently ranked in the bottom third of the league.

Doesn’t matter who they are playing, it might be a good idea to bet against the Washington Football Team until they prove to be more reliable, especially against this talented Cowboys team that has other ways to beat you than through the air.

Pick:

Cowboys -1  (-110)

Green Bay Packers (-3.5) vs Houston Texans

How to watch: Sunday, October 25, 1:00 PM ET, FOX

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers threw his first (and eventually his second) interception of the season in Week 6, the first being a pick-six in the second quarter of their matchup with the Tampa Bay Bucs, and that news didn’t get any better for Green Bay fans as the team posted their first loss of the season, so they will be entering Week 7 with a definite chip on their shoulder.

In Week 6, the Texans continued their losing ways with their 5th defeat of the season, this one at the hands of the undefeated Tennessee Titans, 36-42, with an impressive showing by Houston QB Deshaun Watson, who posted 28 completions for 335 yards and 4 touchdowns with no interceptions in this loss.

These Packers will most likely not lose two in a row, especially to these shaky Texans, so take the Pack and expect to cover the slender spread that’s stacked against them.

Pick:

Packers -3.5   (-110)

Seattle Seahawks (-3.5) vs Arizona Cardinals

How to watch: Sunday, October 25, 4:05 PM ET, FOX

The Seattle Seahawks are one of the few remaining undefeated teams, and now that they are fully rested after a Week 6 bye, expect QB Russel Wilson, WR D.K Metcalf, and company to come back with a bang and make easy work of the Arizona Cardinals team that is still slowly finding its way.

It looked easy on Monday Night Football in Week 6 for the Arizona Cardinals to manhandle the Dallas Cowboys, keeping them to just a field goal until the fourth quarter in a 38-10 win where quarterback Kyler Murray completed nine passes for 188 yards and two touchdowns with no picks, numbers that are impressive but might not be good enough to outscore Wilson and his Seahawks in Week 7.

Take the Seahawks all day in this one – and get ready to watch the number one defense and the number eight overall offense that averages a league-leading 33.8 points per game easily take care of these who score an average of just 25.6 points per matchup.

Pick:

Seahawks -3.5   (-110)

Kansas City Chiefs (-9.5) vs Denver Broncos

How to watch: Sunday, October 25, 4:25 PM ET, CBS

The 5-1 Kansas City Chiefs are coming off a big Monday Night Football win over the Buffalo Bills by a score of 26-17, and any doubts that the returning champs are ready to repeat should be put to rest by now, this team looking ready to beat anyone, and certainly this Broncos team with just two wins so far this season.

The Denver Broncos snagged their second win of 2020 (barely) by a score of 18-12 over the flailing Patriots, the now healthy and returning QB Drew Lock not having a great game despite the win, posting 10 completions for 189 yards and no touchdowns while throwing 2 interceptions, this team not at the same level as the Chiefs which should become apparent early on in this Week 7 game.

Do not bet against Patrick Mahomes or Andy Reid, especially if they are playing a much weaker team like the 2020 Denver Broncos, who can’t seem to stay healthy enough to build momentum around their young QB Lock so far this season.

Pick:

Chiefs -9.5  (-110)

San Francisco 49ers vs New England Patriots (-2.5)

How to watch: Sunday, October 25, 4:25 PM ET, CBS

Looks like QB Jimmy Garoppolo is back and healthy, his outing in Week 6 an impressive one having posted 23 completions for 268 yards and 3 touchdowns with no interceptions in the team’s win over the talented Rams, a sign that this banged up Niners team is getting healthy enough to win games again.

The Patriots are 2-3 for the first time since the 2001 season, and all those Belichick over Brady fans are now starting to second guess their allegiance to the coaching GOAT who is having a hard time getting wins out of his new scrambling QB Cam Newton, the lack of legitimate receiving targets again proving to be the downfall of this New England football team.

The Patriots seem lost right now and the 49ers seem found, so expect San Francisco to take care of business and cover the small spread while making the offensively confused New England squad suffer.

Pick:

49ers +2.5   (-110)

Jacksonville Jaguars vs Los Angeles Chargers (-7.5)

How to watch: Sunday, October 25, 4:25 PM ET, CBS

The Jaguars are 1-5 coming into this Week 7 matchup with LA, and all the positive attention that has been paid to the young Jacksonville QB Gardner Minshew has turned sour as he struggles to help his team build momentum during games, last week throwing an interception in the loss to the Lions while earning a pitiful QBR of just 40.1, which might not even be good enough to beat these struggling 1-4 Chargers.

The Los Angeles Chargers had a bye in Week 6, so now they are rested up and ready to go, and though they have only won a single game so far (and that barely counts since it was against the Bengals) their injuries have had a chance to heal and they are glad their off week was moved up a month due to COVID-19 based rescheduling.

The Jaguars seem in the middle of a downward spiral whereas the Chargers are rested and healed up and ready to begin their season all over again, with a win against the Jaguars likely, though that current spread might be a bit too meaty to overcome.

Pick:

Jaguars +7.5   (-110)

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-2.5) vs Las Vegas Raiders

How to watch: SNF, 8:20 PM ET, NBC

Last week, the Bucs and Tom Brady got the win over the (until then) undefeated Packers, 38-10, with the GOAT finally connecting with his old friend Gronk, tight end Rob Gronkowski, who caught his first touchdown pass of 2020 for his new team, a squad that will go to Vegas expecting to beat these two-loss Raiders.

The Las Vegas Raiders are well-rested, and their injuries are better healed after a Week 6 bye that paused their 3-2 run, their QB Derek Carr feeling confident with the league-leading completion percentage of 73.1 and 11 touchdowns to just one interception, numbers that could propel his team to the next level if they can beat the GOAT who’s coming to town.

This one should be close, but the Bucs are on a roll with Tom Brady and Gronk starting to gel again, so expect them to take that same show on the road to Vegas and take care of the Raiders who boast a defense that’s ranked in the bottom third of the league right now.

Pick:

Buccaneers -2.5   (-114)

Chicago Bears vs Los Angeles Rams (-5.5)

How to watch: Monday, October 26, 8:15 PM ET, ESPN

One of the most unlikely 5-1 teams in the league right now are the Chicago Bears, who seem to have settled on Nick Foles as their starting quarterback, though he threw a pick in their Week 6 win against the Panthers, plus 23 completions for 198 yards and a touchdown, but the question is whether their strong defense can keep these offensive Rams limited to a score that they can beat in Week 7.

QB Jared Goff and his Rams offense could only manage 16 points against a banged-up 49ers defense in Week 6 and took their second loss to their divisional rivals, and now they face a Bears team who has only lost once but seems shaky on offense though solid on the other side of the ball.

The Rams are going to take all the anger they built up over the week after that loss to San Fran and bring that to SoFi Stadium and take it out on these Bears, who could have trouble outscoring Goff’s tricky offense.

Pick:

Rams -5.5   (-110)
