NFL Confidence Pool Picks Week 7
It’s the middle of the season, and we’re seeing some quarterback changes. Andy Dalton took over for Dak Prescott after a season-ending injury and looked awful. Meanwhile, Kyle Allen has taken over for Dwayne Haskins and literally looks worse. Next week, Tua Tagovailoa will get the start for the 3-3 Dolphins, which was shocking news that Ryan Fitzpatrick wasn’t ready for.
Every week I give you my favorite to least favorite games according to my confidence in the pick. Remember, all picks will be picked without using the spread. I look forward to giving you the best chance to win your NFL Confidence pool each week and throughout the entirety of the 2020-21 season.
As the years have gone on, Confidence Pools have become very popular. If you’re unfamiliar with confidence pools, here's a rundown of the concept. Each week you will pick every game and the team you believe will win that game straight up. It’s always good to sprinkle in some underdogs that are adding points to their score! Let’s defeat your entire pool!
Week 7 Confidence List (Most Confidence to Least Confidence)
Bills vs Jets: The Jets are still relying on head coach Adam Gase. I don’t think the Jets win a single game again under Gase. The play calling is terrible, and the players don’t look like they care anymore. I wouldn’t either. Take the Bills.
Jaguars vs Chargers: There’s the Jets and then there’s the Jaguars. The Chargers have played top tier competition. They’ve struggled and haven’t been able to pull out wins. Thankfully, the Chargers will get a weak opponent and get a win. Justin Herbert deserves it. Take the Chargers.
Chiefs vs Broncos: The Broncos can’t finish drives and settle for too many field goals. Meanwhile, the Chiefs are one of the best at finding the endzone. Two totally different squads. Take the Chiefs.
Bears vs Rams: The Rams continue to disappoint this season. This team should look better than they have. It’s time for the offense to blow up against a “respected” defense in the Chicago Bears. Once this offense blows up, people will take the Rams seriously. Take the Rams.
49ers vs Patriots: After the Patriots really struggled against the Broncos, nothing will surprise me anymore. The 49ers are getting better week by week. This team’s health is a major concern, but they’re finding ways. With George Kittle around, the 49ers will have plenty of scoring opportunities. Take the 49ers.
Buccaneers vs Raiders: The Raiders have been surprising this season. The offense is clicking, and the defense has done enough to win ball games. However, a healthy Buccaneers offense is too challenging for that Raiders defense. Plus, the Bucs defense has done some really nice things this season, especially in the turnover department. Take the Buccaneers.
Panthers vs Saints: The Saints at home seem unstoppable. However, Teddy Bridgewater is comfortable in New Orleans and should be able to fill up the box score. The Panthers are not a touchdown underdog, but they will likely lose. Take the Saints.
Packers vs Texans: Do we really expect Aaron Rodgers to play back-to-back poor football games? How many times has this happened in his career? Rodgers is going against a very poor defense in the Texans, and that should be enough. Take the Packers.
Seahawks vs Cardinals: I loved what Kyler Murray showed in his last game against the Cowboys. He looked great and the offense gelled. But he’s not going to be able to make any mistakes in this game to keep up with Russell Wilson. The Seahawks will get a couple turnovers, and that will be a game changer. Take the Seahawks.
Steelers vs Titans: This is really the game of the week. One team is not going to be undefeated anymore. The Titans defense was exposed against the Texans, and the Steelers can do the same with the weapons they have. Take the Steelers.
Lions vs Falcons: The Lions seem to be getting better week by week. Sure, they just beat the Jaguars, but they looked very good in doing so. How can you be sold on this Falcons team? They’re boom or bust every game. One thing is certain: they can’t defend. Take the Lions.
Browns vs Bengals: I’m confident Joe Burrow will have a better career than Baker Mayfield. I’m not confident that the Bengals defense can stop the Browns run game. It’ll be a close game throughout. The Bengals just might win the game at the end of regulation. Take the Bengals.
Cowboys vs Football Team: Andy Dalton against Kyle Allen. This has to be the worst match-up of the day. Look, the Cowboys have plenty more talent than Washington and should win this game. But like I said above, this NFC East is wide open. This game has playoff implications. It’s just laughable. Take the Cowboys.
Giants vs Eagles: Nothing in the NFC is predictable. I’m not confident. I have no clue who is going to win. Wentz and Jones have combined for a ridiculous amount of interceptions this season. Daniel Jones also leads the Giants in rushing yards. This season is weird. I guess the Eagles have the better shot. Take the Eagles.
