2012 NFL Predictions: Week 7

-Digger's Daily-

The sky fell on a few teams last week (and, on my selections too). After correctly picking 12 & 11 in back to back weeks - I stunk it up in Week 6 with a staggering 4 of 14. Season total now stands at 51-41.

Plenty of upsets last weekend. Titans dumped Pittsburgh 26-23. Cleveland won their first game, 36-25, over Cincy. Philadelphia gifted an overtime loss to Detroit. Buffalo bounced Arizona in OT. Seattle bested New England 24-23. An early season standings shakeup of epic proportions.

Bounceback wins by Jets, Packers, Broncos, Bills kept playoff hopes alive. Losses would've been difficult to overcome.

Huge divisional matchups on this weekend's slate. NY Jets (3-3) travel to enemy territory New England (3-3). Seattle (4-2) faces off in 49ers (4-2) country in a battle for NFC West supremacy. Giants (4-2) looking for a firmer grip on NFC East hosting Washington (3-3). Struggling Pittsburgh (2-3) in Cincinnati (3-3) trying to keep pace with surging Ravens (5-1) in AFC North. It's win or be gone for Detroit (2-3) visiting NFC North leading Chicago (4-1). AFC's two top teams go head to head in game of the week style action - Baltimore (AFC North, 5-1) @ Houston (AFC South, 5-1).

Can you believe six weeks of 2012 NFL action is written in the books? Time sure does fly by. Remember when only a few weeks ago the football world was turned upside down by replacements refs? Seems like a distant memory now. Time to pick'em.
