NFL Regular Season: Week 7 (SU, v SPR & PROPS picks)


2014-15 NFL REGULAR SEASON: WEEK 7
TEAMS
GAME PICK (SU)
GAME PICK (vSPR)
NYJ v NE
NE
NYJ (+10.0)
“THE LAST PLAY”
A late ground push to bring the game within a TD is brought to a heartbreaking halt for J-E-T-S fans when a slippery pigskin (due to heavy rains) slips from the grasp of NYJ RB Ivory and is quickly recovered by the NE LB corps to seal the win for the home side.


ATL v BAL
BAL
BAL (-7.0)
“THE LAST PLAY”
Quoth the Raven “What a beating”. Dirty Birds lose their 11th road contest in their last 12 outings after Super Bowl winning BAL QB Flacco and Co. jump ahead 10-pts by third quarter’s end and never look back.

TEN v WAS
WAS
TEN (+5.5)
“THE LAST PLAY”
A late passing push from TEN QB Locker to put his club ahead on the road is quelled when the WAS secondary jumps the route on a play intended for Titans TE Walker in the red zone.

SEA v STL
SEA
SEA (-7.5)
“THE LAST PLAY”
Down a TD late and nearing midfield, surprisingly proficient STL QB Davis slings a 20-yd pass to WR Quick that is immediately picked off and returned for the pick-6 by SEA CB Sherman (Sherman then proceeds to brag to the media about his game-changing play for the next several weeks incessantly).

CLE v JAX
CLE
JAX (+6.5)
“THE LAST PLAY”
The ugliest matchup of the week does not fail to disappoint as a strong push by rookie Jags pivot QB Bortles to carry his club into FG-tying range goes for naught after the Browns jump the line and block JAXs’ OT dreams.

CIN v IND
IND
IND (-3.5)
“THE LAST PLAY”
The Colts leap to a tie for the AFC Division lead after defeating a beaten & beleaguered Bengals team on the road by a full TD.

MIN v BUF
BUF
MIN (+6.0)
“THE LAST PLAY”
MIN QB Bridgewater displays flashes of why he was rumoured for the #1 pick in the NFL Draft just past this Sunday in Buffalo. However, it’s the hometown Bills that seal the deal in this matchup thanks in part to some timely late game connections between BUF QB Orton & TE Chandler & the consistent kicking leg of K Carpenter.

MIA v CHI
CHI
MIA (+3.5)
“THE LAST PLAY”
The race for the lead in the NFC North gets a little tighter this weekend after the ‘Fins force the issue rushing the ball at game’s end on the goal line on 4th down and are stopped in their tracks by an amped up Bears run defence.

NO v DET
DET
DET (-3.0)
“THE LAST PLAY”
The NFC South gets a little uglier this weekend while the NFC North just gets tighter and tighter after the inept traveling Saints fail to produce more than 2 TDs worth of offence against a stout Lions defence and fall to DET via a late game FGM by consistent (though off-field troubled) K Prater.

CAR v GB
GB
CAR (+7.0)
“THE LAST PLAY”
Late game heroics rule the roost for a second weekend in a row for the Packers as well-seasoned veteran QB Rodgers pieces together a few timely late game throws in this one & hands the rock off to the league’s staple kicker, K Crosby, for the final seconds game-winning FGM.

KC v SD
SD
KC (+4.5)
“THE LAST PLAY”
KC keeps this one interesting throughout but the Superchargers, led by the invigorated play of QB Rivers this season, inch out a TD in the final minutes to jump ahead by a FG+ to seal the home side win here.

ARI v OAK
ARI
OAK (+4.0)
“THE LAST PLAY”
The Cards escape by the skin of their teeth in this matchup courtesy a blocked long FGM try at game’s end on OAK kicking afficiando K Janikowski.

NYG v DAL
DAL
DAL (-7.0)
“THE LAST PLAY”
Not so much the Cowboys as it is their stellar RB Murray puts back-to-back division opponent hurtings on an overrated-of-late, traveling Giants squad.

SF v DEN
DEN
DEN (-6.5)
“THE LAST PLAY”
The 49ers come prepared to play in Mile High this SNF but, far from a surprising outcome, DEN QB Manning pulls out a late game TD pass to TE Thomas to seal the 7-pt home side victory here.

HOU v PIT
PIT
PIT (-3.0)
“THE LAST PLAY”
(For at least a weekend) PIT appears the dominant squad it has been over the past decade with a convincing 2-TD victory over a sad sack HOU squad that is one of the greatest imposters in the NFL to-date.
