After being away for a month, Breaking Football’s weekly picks return for the rest of the season. While I was away, my counterpart Scotty and I kept track of our picks in order to keep our competition alive as we compete to see who can predict the most correct games in 2016. Week 7 proved me to be kind to me as I posted an impressive 12-2-1 record, running away a bit in the standings.

Standings

Jonathan: 64-42-1 (12-2-1)
Scotty: 58-48-1 (8-6-1)

Jacksonville Jaguars (2-4) @ Tennessee Titans (3-4)

Jonathan: Jaguars

Scotty: Titans

S: This one is simple, I’m not going to pick Blake Bortles.

Washington Redskins (4-3) @ Cincinnati Bengals (3-4)

Jonathan: Bengals

Scotty: Bengals

J: This under the radar game has all the makings of a shootout. Dalton leads a game-winning drive with less than a minute to go.

Kansas City Chiefs (4-2) @ Indianapolis Colts (3-4)

Jonathan: Chiefs

Scotty: Colts

J: I’ve been picking the Colts nearly every week, but not this time. The Chiefs are one of the best overall, balanced teams in the NFL and too good for  Indy’s lopsided roster.

Arizona Cardinals (3-3-1) @ Carolina Panthers (1-5)

Jonathan: Panthers

Scotty: Cardinals

S: David Johnson is too much to handle and the Cardinals are looking to avenge the NFC Championship last year.

Oakland Raiders (5-2) @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-3)

Jonathan: Raiders

Scotty: Buccaneers

S: This one I feel will be high scoring and close. Taking the home team seems safe.

Seattle Seahawks (4-1-1) @ New Orleans Saints (2-4)

Jonathan: Seahawks

Scotty: Seahawks

J: After Sunday Night’s snooze fest, the Seahawks will be ready to go heading into New Orleans. They take advantage of the Saints’ poor defense and Russell Wilson has his best game of the year.

Detroit Lions (4-3) @ Houston Texans (4-3)

Jonathan: Texans

Scotty: Lions

S: Like the Jaguars, I have no trust in the quarterback for Houston. Stafford and company shouldn’t need a game-winning drive this week.

New England Patriots (6-1) @ Buffalo Bills (4-3)

Jonathan: Patriots

Scotty: Patriots

J: The Patriots won’t be swept by the Bills, especially because they have Tom Brady this time.

New York Jets (2-5) @ Cleveland Browns (0-7)

Jonathan: Jets

Scotty: Jets

S: Sorry Cleveland, the Indians will win more games this week than the Browns all season.

San Diego Chargers (3-4) @ Denver Broncos (5-2)

Jonathan: Chargers

Scotty: Broncos

J: Calling the upset this week as Philip Rivers does enough to lead San Diego over Trevor Siemian who has his worst game of the year.

Green Bay Packers @ Atlanta Falcons

Jonathan: Packers

Scotty: Falcons

S: This is a make or break game for the Falcons to prove they are a different team from last year. Matt Ryan has a day and Atlanta pulls it off.

Philadelphia Eagles @ Dallas Cowboys

Jonathan: Eagles

Scotty: Eagles

J: As an Eagles fan, absolutely can’t wait for this game on Sunday Night as it’ll bring a new chapter to this storied rivalry. The Eagles defense proves to be the deciding factor in this matchup as Dak Prescott throws a pair of INTs.

Minnesota Vikings (5-1) @ Chicago Bears (1-6)

Jonathan: Vikings

Scotty: Vikings

S: The Bears simply don’t have enough to win this game. Can we please get them out of primetime slots?
