Seventh week of NFL predictions: Browns @ Ravens, Seahawks @ Chargers, Steelers @ Dolphins | NFL News


NFL Predictions – Week Seven

Will the “supreme talent” Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens triumph over the Cleveland Browns? Will the Seattle Seahawks upset the Los Angeles Chargers? And do the Miami Dolphins have “too much” speed for the Pittsburgh Steelers?

Neil Reynolds and Jeff Reinebold were again joined by Super Bowl winners Will Blackmon and Torry Holt on the latest Inside the group podcast to give their predictions for this Sunday’s NFL live action on sky sports.

Torry had bragging rights in Week 6, calling two of three games correctly — wins for the Buffalo Bills and Philadelphia Eagles — while Neil and Jeff only saw Buffalo success coming, and Will was blank at all levels.

This Sunday’s triple header represents a chance for redemption. It starts with the Cleveland Browns against the Baltimore Ravens in an AFC North rivalry matchup, before the Seattle Seahawks head to Los Angeles to take on the Chargers, then the evening’s entertainment ends with the Miami Dolphins hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football.

Click the link below to listen to Neil, Jeff, Will and Torry on this week’s Inside The Huddle podcast and read on to see their week seven predictions…

Cleveland Browns (2-4) @ Baltimore Ravens (3-3)

Sunday, live on Sky Sports NFL, 6 p.m.

NEIL PICKS: Ravens

“I don’t trust any of these teams very much, but this division is here for the taking – it’s a big game!

“The Ravens have been involved in some very close games, especially at home – I think they’ve had eight straight games that ended in a score – but I’m saying they get the job done in this one.”

JEFF PICKS: Ravens

“I love Baltimore too. I believe in Lamar Jackson at quarterback, even though he hasn’t played particularly well the last two weeks. He’s still a great player.

“And I don’t know how many Desean Jackson will feature [after signing for the Ravens] this week, but I still think that at 35, he has the ability. He’ll do well there, and it’s a weapon they need in the passing game because they’re so dependent on Mark Andrews.”

CHOICE OF THE WILL: Ravens

“I like Baltimore in this one.

“The only thing Desean Jackson can still do is run. He’ll get the eyes of the defense, and as soon as they fall asleep, he’ll knock them over for a 70-yard TD!”

TORRY CHOICE: Ravens

“Lamar Jackson is a supreme talent, but I want him to protect football better.

“The Browns, on the other hand, have been a real disappointment so far this season, especially on defense, I think I like their running game.

“A division game, which means it could go either way. It’ll be close, but I’m going to go with the Ravens at home. I think the Baltimore crowd will help them and they’ll do just enough.”

Seattle Seahawks (3-3) @ Los Angeles Chargers (4-2)

Sunday, live on Sky Sports NFL, 9:25 p.m.

NEIL PICKS: Chargers

“Seattle won with explosive offensive performances this season, but they did it on defense last week. [beating the Arizona Cardinals]. They sacked Kyler Murray six times!

“But, I’m still going to go with the Chargers in this one – I just believe in their quarterback Justin Herbert.”

JEFF PICKS: Chargers

“For me, the Seahawks are one of the surprise teams of the season. And for me, you have to start by talking about Geno Smith at quarterback – talking about surprises.

“This guy was scrapped by the NFL and so for him to play as well as he did, it’s an eye opener.

“The Seahawks seem to have regained that swagger they once had – [head coach] Pete Carroll looks like he’s having fun.

“That being said, I think when you look at the total rosters, the Chargers are a better football team top to bottom.”

CHOICE: Seahawks

“The only thing the Chargers have trouble with is something Seattle does well, and that is running the game.

“I love the Seahawks for the upset. Right now they have that energy – when they’re doing well, Carroll knows how to keep this team pumped.”

TORRY PICK: Seahawks

“The Seahawks are intriguing. We watched the Chargers Monday night against the Denver Broncos, and they weren’t that convincing in a low-scoring game.

“I like what Geno does, he surprised me. He completes 73% of his passes and he hasn’t returned it much. I also like their rookie, Kenneth Walker from Michigan State, and they have two good receivers in DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.

“I think Seattle is going on the road and beating the Chargers.”

Pittsburgh Steelers (2-4) @ Miami Dolphins (3-3)

Sunday Night Football, live on Sky Sports NFL, Monday, 1:20 a.m.

NEIL PICKS: Dolphins

“It looks like Tua Tagovailoa is going to be back for the Dolphins [after two weeks out with concussion]. We hope he’s okay, that’s the first thing.

“Miami needs to stop the revolving door at quarterback. However, even with Teddy Bridgewater and Skyler Thompson at quarterback, Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle still had their yards at receiver.

“So I’m picking Miami to win this one, especially now that Tua is back.”

JEFF PICKSDolphins

“It’s difficult. [Steelers quarterback] Kenny Pickett is also on concussion protocol, although we’ve heard coach Mike Tomlin say, “If he can play, he will.”

“But I look at this Miami team, I see the weapons they have, and I believe they’re going to win the game.”

CHOICE: Dolphins

“If the Steelers can’t get to the quarterback, whoever it is, they’re going to be in trouble. Because they can’t cover those Dolphins receivers for a long time. I’m taking Miami.”

TORRY PICKS: Dolphins

“I’m taking the Dolphins home too. I think their speed on offense will be too much for the Steelers.”
