NFL 5 2020 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 7 NFL matchups 31380391 Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears (Monday, 8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN) Detroit+Lions+at+Chicago+Bears+%28Monday%2C+8%3A30+p.m.+ET%2C+ESPN%29 NFL

With 164 head-to-head matchups, the Lions and Bears are the NFL’s oldest rivalry, but the Bears hold the recent edge having won seven of the last eight games. The Lions seem to have taken a step back in offensive production from last year, but Calvin Johnson is still the best receiver in the game, and eventually he and Matt Stafford will once again find that familiar chemistry. Jay Cutler (pictured) has had an inconsistent season as well, but the Bears defense has given up just six touchdowns on the year, all the while scoring five of its own. That is downright impressive. Pick: Bears

NFL 5 2020 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 7 NFL matchups 31380392 Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals (Sunday, 8:20 p.m. ET, NBC) Pittsburgh+Steelers+at+Cincinnati+Bengals+%28Sunday%2C+8%3A20+p.m.+ET%2C+NBC%29 NFL

These teams are coming off disappointing Week 6 losses to the Browns and Titans. If history is any indicator, the Steelers have the advantage. Ben Roethlisberger (pictured) is 12-4 against the Bengals and is 33-9 against AFC North opponents, but he isn’t getting the same defensive support he is used to getting. The Steelers will have to overcome a shaky defense that may very well be without Troy Polamalu once again. In what used to be smash-mouth football in the AFC North, this one could actually turn into a shootout. Pick: Bengals

NFL 5 2020 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 7 NFL matchups 31380400 Jacksonville Jaguars at Oakland Raiders (Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET, CBS) Jacksonville+Jaguars+at+Oakland+Raiders+%28Sunday%2C+4%3A25+p.m.+ET%2C+CBS%29 NFL

Outside of Jacksonville and Oakland, I’m not sure this game will appeal to many viewers. The Jaguars feature the 32nd-ranked offense with a quarterback, Blaine Gabbert, who personally ranks 29th or worse in almost every major passing category. Pair that with a defense that is ranked 29th in total yards and you don’t have a very stable formula for success. While the Raiders only have a 1-4 record, they are coming off a nice showing against the only unbeaten team in the NFL, and that should count for something. Pick: Raiders

NFL 5 2020 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 7 NFL matchups 31380393 New York Jets at New England Patriots (Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET, CBS) New+York+Jets+at+New+England+Patriots+%28Sunday%2C+4%3A25+p.m.+ET%2C+CBS%29 NFL

At first look, the Patriots aren’t the dominating team we have come to expect this decade, but their three losses have come by a combined four points while their three wins have come by a combined 55 points. They are just a few defensive stops away from being 6-0 instead of 3-3. After a heartbreaking loss at the hands of the Seahawks lost week, the Patriots will look to let out their frustrations against the divisional rival Jets. It won’t even be close. Pick: Patriots

NFL 5 2020 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 7 NFL matchups 31380389 Cleveland Browns at Indianapolis Colts (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBS) Cleveland+Browns+at+Indianapolis+Colts+%28Sunday%2C+1+p.m.+ET%2C+CBS%29 NFL

This game features two of the six rookie starting quarterbacks in the NFL and oddly enough, Brandon Weeden (pictured) enters the game with all the momentum. Weeden has found a new deep-ball target in Josh Gordon and got his first win of the season last week against the Bengals. On the flip side, the Colts were coming off an emotional win against the Packers, and then Andrew Luck completely laid an egg against what was a struggling Jets defense. I expect Luck to bounce back, but the Colts could struggle on defense stopping the run and then the occasional deep ball to keep them honest. Pick: Browns

NFL 5 2020 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 7 NFL matchups 31380399 Tennessee Titans at Buffalo Bills (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBS) Tennessee+Titans+at+Buffalo+Bills+%28Sunday%2C+1+p.m.+ET%2C+CBS%29 NFL

Last week, the Bills ended a two-game losing skid in which they were outscored 97-31 and now they have a chance to start a winning streak against the worst scoring defense in the NFL. Ryan Fitzpatrick, C.J. Spiller (pictured), and Stevie Johnson, the team’s leaders in passing, rushing, and receiving, respectively, are all set up for big numbers against a Titans defense that is giving up 34 points per game. Pick: Bills

NFL 5 2020 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 7 NFL matchups 31380390 Baltimore Ravens at Houston Texans (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBS) Baltimore+Ravens+at+Houston+Texans+%28Sunday%2C+1+p.m.+ET%2C+CBS%29 NFL

This game features two of the most dynamic running backs in the NFL. Since 2010, Arian Foster and Ray Rice (pictured) lead the league in scrimmage yards with 4,694 and 4,559 yards, respectively. The Texans defense was somewhat exposed against the Packers last week, and the Ravens defense, which has been leaky already, will now be without Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb. Both Foster and Rice should have plenty of opportunity to get chunks of yardage, whether it be on the ground or through the air. Pick: Ravens

NFL 5 2020 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 7 NFL matchups 31380396 Washington Redskins at New York Giants (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, FOX) Washington+Redskins+at+New+York+Giants+%28Sunday%2C+1+p.m.+ET%2C+FOX%29 NFL

Robert Griffin III has lived up to the expectations and is now coming off what was probably his best outing yet. He racked up 320 scrimmage yards against the Vikings and his 70.2 completion percentage is now the highest for a rookie quarterback over the course of six games since 1960, edging out Ben Roethlisberger by 1.2 percentage points. He will have his hands full against the Giants that are coming off the best win of the NFL season so far in their crushing of the 49ers last week. Pick: Giants

NFL 5 2020 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 7 NFL matchups 31380395 Green Bay Packers at St. Louis Rams (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, FOX) Green+Bay+Packers+at+St.+Louis+Rams+%28Sunday%2C+1+p.m.+ET%2C+FOX%29 NFL

Aaron Rodgers had been a little off in the first five games, and that is scary considering his 16 touchdowns and 105.4 passer rating both lead the league. It will be interesting to see if he can parlay the momentum built last week when he threw for six touchdowns and 338 yards to give the Packers their first back-to-back wins of the season. The Rams’ tandem of edge rushers, Chris Long and Robert Quinn, could give the Packers a fit up front, but if Rodgers gets any time in the pocket, he should be able to dissect a much improved secondary. Pick: Packers

NFL 5 2020 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 7 NFL matchups 31380397 New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, FOX) New+Orleans+Saints+at+Tampa+Bay+Buccaneers+%28Sunday%2C+1+p.m.+ET%2C+FOX%29 NFL

This will be the last game for interim head coach Aaron Kromer (pictured) before handing the reins over to the next interim head coach, Joe Vitt. Kromer has led this team to a disappointing 1-4 start, but those 4 losses came by a combined 20 points, and they never lost by more than what could have been made up in a single possession. The Saints are coming off their best offensive outing of the season and should be able to do the same against a Bucs team that struggles to get after opposing quarterbacks. Pick: Saints

NFL 5 2020 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 7 NFL matchups 31380398 Dallas Cowboys at Carolina Panthers (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, FOX) Dallas+Cowboys+at+Carolina+Panthers+%28Sunday%2C+1+p.m.+ET%2C+FOX%29 NFL

Rob Ryan’s defense is surrendering just 285 yards per game, good for second in the NFL. The problem is, they are ranked 20th in scoring defense and have given up 30-plus points in back-to-back games — 31 to Baltimore and 34 to Chicago. The Panthers offense isn’t nearly as explosive as those two, but they can’t afford to give them the ball on a short field. That comes down to protecting the ball on offense and getting good special-teams coverage in kickoff and putting situations. Pick: Cowboys

NFL 5 2020 Brian Billick breaks down the Week 7 NFL matchups 31380394 Arizona Cardinals at Minnesota Vikings (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, FOX) Arizona+Cardinals+at+Minnesota+Vikings+%28Sunday%2C+1+p.m.+ET%2C+FOX%29 NFL

I guarantee you that Jared Allen (pictured) has been licking his chops all week. Not only has he had a sack in each of the last four games, now he gets to go up against the two worst tackles in the NFL in regards to sacks given up. Bobby Massie and D’Anthony Batiste have given up 9.5 and seven sacks, respectively, and the next worst has only given up five on the season. Kevin Kolb was knocked out of the game last week and John Skelton will be lucky to make it through this one with the way these guys are blocking. Pick: Vikings
