Credit the Colts for fighting and keeping themselves even marginally alive in the AFC, but this game is worlds away from their matchup with the Texans in Week 6. The 49ers will be rested and have an ideal game plan for pulling Indianapolis’ defense all over the field. Throw in the Colts’ hobbling offensive line, and this could get ugly. Indy’s best hope is that the 49ers come out a little rusty from their bye week. The Patriots are coming off a tough loss against the Cowboys last week, and I expect them to cover and more against a lesser foe in the Jets. The Patriots visit the Chargers and Panthers the next two weeks, so Bill Belichick and co. won’t want to cut this one close if they plan to get above above .500 and contend for a playoff spot.
Nfl Week 7: Maximbets Betting Odds And Predictions
The health of the Indianapolis offensive line will be crucial to this matchup as Nick Bosa and Arik Armstead is these details arguably the best pass-rushing tandem the Colts have faced or will face all year. Michael Pittman Jr. has emerged as the go-to wide receiver for Wentz as he has 31 catches for 403 yards and a touchdown this year. San Francisco’s secondary has struggled to establish consistency with Jason Verrett out for the year, and Pittman should be very productive in this matchup. A steady diet of Jonathan Taylor on the ground will also be essential to keep the 49ers’ potent pass rush at bay. I continue to be burned by betting against the Cardinals, and I’m not doing it again this week.
Jacksonville Jaguars Vs Indianapolis Colts Nfl Picks And Predictions 11
The Broncos will once again be solid on defense with linebacker Von Miller who had a team-high 13.5 sacks in 2016. Denver was hoping that Miller would team with DE Shane Ray, who had eight sacks last year, to form one of the NFL’s top pass rushing duos. That won’t happen until later in the season since Ray was placed on injured reserve on Sept. 5 with a wrist injury. The freshly moved Los Angeles Chargers could be one of the surprise teams in the NFL this season if they can just stay healthy. Quarterback Philip Rivers lost WR Keenan Allen and RB Danny Woodhead for the season last year. Allen is back and healthy while Woodhead has moved on to New England.
Panthers At Giants
Ron Rivera gets his first opportunity to face his former employer this week, and I’ll take his Washington team to get a much-needed victory to keep them in first place in the NFC East. After earning a comeback win over the Falcons last week and seeing the Saints lose at home to the Chiefs, Tampa is just one game behind New Orleans in the NFC South. However, the Saints hold the tiebreaker over the Buccaneers with their two wins over New Orleans this season. Tampa has some elite talent on both sides of the ball, but they earned just one Pro Bowl nod for Jason Pierre-Paul.
Henry Ruggs III had some big plays on his way to three catches for 97 yards and a touchdown while Bryan Edwards, Darren Waller, and Hunter Renfrow round out a talented passing attack. Philly’s secondary has quietly been excellent this season, but I still trust Carr to move the ball against the Eagles more than I do Hurts against the Raiders. I had high hopes for Year Two of the Tua Tagovailoa experience, but the NFL world is loudly convinced he is a bust. I’m not at that point, and the Dolphins have much bigger problems than the quarterback position at the moment. The continued absences of DeVante Parker, Will Fuller, and Preston Williams have limited Miami’s passing offense, although rookie Jaylen Waddle is coming off his best game of the year. Waddle finished with ten catches for 70 yards and two touchdowns last week against the Jaguars and looks like a crucial part of this team’s future.
The Seahawks, surprisingly, are also 1-2 thanks, in large part, to an offense that is anemic at best. Head coach Pete Carroll’s team did manage to score 27 points last week but the defense fell apart in a defeat at Tennessee. The AFC’s last remaining unbeaten welcomes the 2-1 Washington Redskins to Arrowhead Stadium on Monday night. Kansas City appears to have the offensive weapons to take on anyone in the NFL.
In Super Bowl XLVIII, the offensive juggernaut known as the Denver Broncos were led by future Hall of Fame QB Peyton Manning. The Broncos ran into the NFL’s best defense, Seattle, and were promptly beaten 43-8. Last year, it was those same Broncos, under head coach Gary Kubiak, who had the league’s best defense and it shut down the NFL’s Most Valuable Player, Carolina’s Cam Newton.
Seahawks Vs Saints Week 7 Prediction, Pick, Odds And More
Baltimore is third in the league in points against giving up just 17.1 per game. Prior to the season-ending loss to Atlanta, the Panthers had won seven of eight games. The Panthers must have success running the football – they have the NFL’s fourth-best running game (131.4 yards per game). Newton is the team’s leading rusher while Jonathan Stewart has 680 yards and rookie Christian McCaffrey has 435. Stewart missed the final game of the season with an injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game. If Pittsburgh wide receiver Antonio Brown is able to go at full speed, the Steelers will have a distinct advantage over Jacksonville.
Golden Tate is his No. 1 target , but the Lions run game needs to be better. One of the things that has helped Keenum is the Vikings running game which generated 171 yards last week. Latavius Murray had 95 yards and two touchdowns runs in the win over Los Angeles and the Vikings average 123.3 yards a game on the ground. Coming off big wins a week ago, both Houston and Indy are still alive, even if barely, in the AFC postseason race. The Texans are still three games behind AFC South leader Jacksonville, but they are still in the hunt for a wild card just like Indy.
Two somewhat surprising teams square off in an NFC South showdown when the suddenly upstart Buccaneers goto New Orleans to take on the Saints without Drew Brees. Surprisingly, the Saints have come on strong after losing Brees to an finger injury that should cost him about 8 weeks on the injured list. The suddenly hot Baltimore Ravens will travel to Century Link Field in Seattle to take on another hot team, the Seattle Seahawks. Russell Wilson and the Seahawks have been a balanced football team thus far in the 2019 season with impressive wins including one against the division rival LA Rams just last week.
