It’s Friday and The Stack is here to make some week seven NFL picks. Week seven? Already?! That’s right. Through six weeks we’ve been decent…56-35. Off to a good start this week with San Francisco’s 13-6 win over Seattle though it was kind of a boring game. The defenses were very good, but Jim Harbaugh’s decision not to take the safety cost a lot of people money not that he cares about that. Could have been 15-6. Spread was 7.5. 49ers win gives them first place (perhaps temporarily) in the NFC West. Now let’s get right to some picks and predictions in “the stack” for today, Friday, October, 19:
Tennessee Titans @ Buffalo Bills 1:00 PM ET CBS
The Titans had a nice win against the Steelers last week and Matt Hasselbeck definitely gives them a chance to win. The Bills are hoping that the win in Arizona last week can springboard them into some more wins. Don’t know about down the line, but I think they can get one this week.
Prediction: Bills 27 Titans 22
Dallas Cowboys @ Carolina Panthers 1:00 PM ET FOX
If you’re a Cowboys fan, aren’t you wondering how the Boys will find a way to lose this week? You almost expect it. They find new ways to win all of the time. If Cam Newton and the Panthers were playing better, I’d the Cowboys would lose, but given Newton’s struggles and how the Panthers have looked so far this year, the Cowboys would really have to botch something up to lose this game. Having said that, it wouldn’t shock me if the Panthers pull out a way to win.
Prediction: Cowboys 27 Panthers 20
