In a loss to Detroit last week, Winston committed three of his team’s five turnovers. There is talk of a rift between Winston and Bucs head coach Dirk Koetter. They finish the season with three straight games against NFC South opponents – Atlanta, Carolina, and New Orleans – who are a combined 26-13. Carson has a big day against a tough Ravens secondary but the Colts took the foot off the gas and let the Ravens creep back in the end to win in overtime. They’ll be looking to beat up on a Texans team that has been struggling thus far in the first quarter of the 2021 season.
To beat Dallas, the Giants will need to maximize their possessions. They’ve been good about not turning the ball over, but that’s easier said than done against a Cowboys’ defense that already has 10 takeaways on the year. It almost seems like the Cowboys aren’t getting enough attention (I definitely won’t regret that comment later). Dallas is 3-1, a field goal away from 4-0 and playing well on both sides of the ball.
- He has benefitted from a full complement of receivers as his improved play has coincided with the reintroduction of Jamison Crowder to the lineup.
- Carolina is 8-2 ATS across its past 10 road games, and 6-1 ATS across the previous seven as a road underdog.
- That ended a two game slide and their defence had their best performance of the season, forcing four turnovers from Teddy Bridgewater.
- Money doesn’t grow on trees so picking a side in this game is a challenge.
They’ve put up two solid wins against the Titans in opening week, and then edged out a strong Minnesota Vikings team in a last minute win. Kyler and the high power offense will look to keep things rolling against a shaky Jaguars defense, and continue his early MVP performance. Lawrence never lost a game that he started in since Pop Warner League as a child, so this 0-2 start for the first overall pick is something new for the talented prospect. Las Vegas goes into their bye week after this game, and sitting at 5-2, with everything they have gone through would be the best-case scenario. Carr had his offense humming against Denver, and the defense was all over the field, showing the kind of team effort that could win this team a lot of games going forward.
Week 7 Nfl Totals Bets
At right tackle will be Matt Peart, who has allowed a pressure 8.4% of the time in his career. Jones has been fine from a clean pocket, posting a 65.6% completion percentage, 7.8 yards per attempt and a 37.5% first-down rate. When made my day facing pressure, however, Jones dips to a 54.4% completion rate, 6.1 YPA and a 21.1% first-down rate while taking a sack 17.4% of the time. Rookie Tommy Tremble is also splitting work with veteran Ian Thomas at TE, so all are only viable on one-game Showdown slates. The Ravens play man coverage at the fourth-highest rate, which should leave RCB Anthony Averett singled up on Ja’Marr Chase.
The Cardinals have looked sensational this season, and didn’t skip a beat without their head coach this last week. They will have to do the same this week, knowing the Green Packers will be waiting for Thursday Night Football. Much like the Packers game, I like the opposing team to cover the spread in this game because I can see Arizona overlooking Houston here.
Chicago Bears At Las Vegas Raiders
In any event, Cincinnati head coach Zac Taylor seems to be building a real culture, and this team is absolutely headed in the right direction, despite their disappointing record this season. Giovani Bernard racked up 97 yards from scrimmage and 2 touchdowns on 26 touches, while Ryan Finely ran for 47 yards and a score on 10 carries. The defense also stepped up hugely in holding Ben Roethlisberger to just 52.6% completion with an appalling QBR of 15.1. The secondary shone’s talent through, as Vonn Bell, Mackensie Alexander, Jessie Bates III, and William Jackson III showed their collective strength. Deshaun Watson was electric with 373 yards passing, 25 yards rushing, and 2 passing touchdowns, but the offensive line had difficulty keeping him upright as he took 5 sacks.
Panthers At Giants In Week 7: Game Predictions And Betting Odds
Even though they have one of the NFL’s best pass rushers in Khalil Mack (7.0 sacks), the Raiders still give up nearly 25 points a game. They will have to slow down the Houston running game and put some pressure on QB Brock Osweiler. One big thing in the Raiders’ favor is Houston’s lack of success on the road. Coming off a huge win over Kansas City last week, Tampa Bay now must face Seattle (7-2-1) and do so with a banged up secondary.
Despite the lack of scoring, the Browns still managed their fourth straight game with 150 or more rushing yards – a great sign going into a matchup with leaky run defense. As for Cleveland’s defense, it stifled Minnesota, holding the Vikings to 255 total yards and just 11 plays beyond midfield after its first drive. The Browns are underdogs for the second time this season after covering in their opener. Another game where it’s take the points or pass but I do like the Texans here.
The Chiefs, meanwhile, have now lost two straight games at home to the Colts and the Texans. Newton threw two picks against the Denver defence, but it’s hard to know whether the mistakes were entirely on Cam, or just a result of some rust after not having played in close to two weeks. LA defeated the Jaguars last season and there is a decent chance this one gets out of hand for the second time running.
Justin Reid and Lonnie Johnson each have two picks, so far this season. I’ve seen a lot of different people with a lot of different thoughts on this game. The Raiders looked good in Denver last week and the Eagles have played well against teams that do not have high-octane offense. The Raiders are a middle of the line team this season, but their offense is a far cry from that of Dallas, Kansas City and Tampa Bay – all three teams that have beat Philly this season. The Eagles have played much closer games against the Falcons, 49ers and Panthers, teams that are closer to the Raiders across the board.
