NFL Week 7 Predictions: Picking Chiefs-Titans, Bengals-Ravens and more

We're previewing and predicting the outcome of every Week 7.

LOS ANGELES — We're on to Week 7 in the NFL, which is headlined by Chiefs-Titans, Bengals-Ravens, Eagles-Raiders and Colts-49ers. Not as great of a week for matchups as we've seen in recent weeks.

This year at Locked On, Locked On Saints host Ross Jackson and me (Locked On national content producer Cameron LaFontaine) will predict the outcomes of every NFL game week to week. 

Last week, Ross and I were pretty close to even on against the spread picks with Ross edging me out by one. Still not sure why I continue to pick against the Arizona Cardinals. Maybe they're just better than everyone else. Won't happen again!

Pick records last week:

  • Straight up: Ross 10-3, Cameron 9-4
  • Against the spread: Ross 7-6, Cameron 6-7

Pick records so far this season:

  • Straight up: Ross 62-31, Cameron 61-32
  • Against the spread: Ross 53-39-1 (58%), Cameron 50-42-1 (54%)

NFL Week 7 Score Predictions

Denver Broncos at Cleveland Browns 

Time: Thursday, 8:20 p.m. (all times eastern)
Watch: NFL Network
Spread: CLE -1.5, O/U 41

The Cleveland Browns will be without Baker Mayfield on Thursday night and the Browns are facing injury problems elsewhere as well, just days after they were clobbered by the Cardinals at home. Meanwhile, the Broncos were just dominated by the Raiders and have to hit the road on a short week.

Ross Jackson: Browns 22, Broncos 18
Cameron LaFontaine: Broncos 20, Browns 16

Washington Football Team at Green Bay Packers

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m.
Watch: FOX
Spread: WFT -8.5, O/U 48.5

The Green Bay Packers are red hot and have won five-straight as they welcome a Washington team that has not lived up to expectations thus far this year. Can Washington keep this one close?

Ross Jackson: Packers 34, Washington 17
Cameron LaFontaine: Packers 31, Washington 26

Kansas City Chiefs at Tennessee Titans

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m.
Watch: CBS
Spread: KC -5.5, O/U 57.5

This may be the game of the week after the Titans were able to get an upset win over the Buffalo Bills in primetime on Monday. Are the Chiefs back on track after dominating Washington on the road?

Ross Jackson: Titans 27, Chiefs 24
Cameron LaFontaine: Chiefs 37, Titans 31

Atlanta Falcons at Miami Dolphins

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m.
Watch: FOX
Spread: ATL +2.5, O/U 47.5

The Miami Dolphins are in turmoil sitting at 1-5 now after their latest loss to the Jaguars. The Falcons are coming off a bye week trying to get to .500 on the year. 

Ross Jackson: Falcons 17, Dolphins 14
Cameron LaFontaine: Falcons 24, Dolphins 20

New York Jets at New England Patriots

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m.
Watch: CBS
Spread: NE -7.5, O/U 42.5

The New England Patriots are coming off another disappointing loss at home in a close game against a good team. The Jets had a bye last week and plenty of time to prepare. Can they give the Pats a run for their money on the road?

Ross Jackson: Patriots 21, Jets 13
Cameron LaFontaine: Patriots 24, Jets 15

Carolina Panthers at New York Giants

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m.
Watch: FOX
Spread: CAR -2.5, O/U 43.5

The Carolina Panthers have lost three-straight games after starting 3-0. They have a good chance Sunday to get one back against the Giants, who have not been good at all this year. Both teams will likely be without their premier running backs so we're going to get a Sam Darnold vs. Daniel Jones showdown.

Ross Jackson: Panthers 25, Giants 20
Cameron LaFontaine: Panthers 27, Giants 17

Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens

Time: Sunday, 1 p.m.
Watch: CBS
Spread: BAL -6, O/U 46

This may be the game of the week as the 4-2 Bengals visit the 5-1 Ravens in an NFC North battle. Oddsmakers aren't giving too much respect to Cincinnati here, but the Ravens did just clobber a very good Chargers team at home.

Ross Jackson: Ravens 28, Bengals 18
Cameron LaFontaine: Ravens 24, Bengals 20

Philadelphia Eagles at Las Vegas Raiders

Time: Sunday, 4:05 p.m.
Watch: FOX
Spread: LV -3, O/U 49

This should be a fun one. Jalen Hurts and the Eagles visit Vegas. The Raiders were clearly charged up last week following Jon Gruden's resignation when they thumped the Broncos. Can they keep that going for a second-straight week?

Ross Jackson: Raiders 23, Eagles 19
Cameron LaFontaine: Eagles 31, Raiders 28

Detroit Lions at Los Angeles Rams

Time: Sunday, 4:05 p.m.
Watch: FOX
Spread: LAR -15, O/U 50.5

This one will be weird. Matthew Stafford and the Rams taking on Jared Goff and the Lions. The Rams are heavily favored as the Lions are reeling now 0-6.

Ross Jackson: Rams 35, Lions 17
Cameron LaFontaine: Rams 38, Lions 20

Houston Texans at Arizona Cardinals

Time: Sunday, 4:25 p.m.
Watch: FOX
Spread: ARI -17.5, O/U 47.5

Another matchup that's expected to be very lopsided. The Texans are looking lost after they were dominated yet again last week, 31-3 by the Colts. Now, they have to play maybe the best team in the NFL on the road.

Ross Jackson: Cardinals 28, Texans 10
Cameron LaFontaine: Cardinals 31, Texans 13

Chicago Bears at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Time: Sunday, 4:25 p.m.
Watch: CBS
Spread: TB -13, O/U 47

The Chicago Bears visit the Tampa Bay Bucs hoping to steal one here. The Bucs defense is banged up but their offense hasn't skipped a beat, leading them to a 5-1 record thus far. Can Justin Fields find his playmakers enough to keep up?

Ross Jackson: Bucs 28, Bears 22
Cameron LaFontaine: Bucs 31, Bears 23

Indianapolis Colts at San Francisco 49ers

Time: Sunday, 8:20 p.m.
Watch: NBC

Spread: SF -4, O/U 44

This will be an interesting one as we're really still trying to gauge both of these teams, who have had rough starts below expectations. The Niners are coming off a bye and the Colts are coming off a dominating performance against the Texans.

Ross Jackson: Colts 21, 49ers14
Cameron LaFontaine: 49ers 26, Colts 23

New Orleans Saints at Seattle Seahawks

Time: Monday, 8:15 p.m.
Watch: ESPN

Spread: NO -5, O/U 43.5

The Saints are coming off a bye and the Seahawks are coming off an overtime loss in Pittsburgh last week in Geno Smith's first start since Russell Wilson's hand injury. Which Saints team will we get on Monday night? They've been inconsistent, but so has Seattle.

Ross Jackson: Saints 23, Seahawks 20
Cameron LaFontaine: Saints 24, Seahawks 17
