Week 7 NFL Picks — October 21 (UPDATED WITH MONDAY NIGHT PICKS!)

This is the condensed version of picks for the NFL Week 7 games for Winners and Whiners between:

Tennessee Titans vs. Los Angeles Chargers and New York Giants vs. Atlanta Falcons:

Picks for Sunday’s games have been made, and Monday’s picks will be updated during Monday afternoon after a final update of the preview.

Thursday night review: To take page from the great cartoon, Anamaniacs, it’s time for another “Good Idea, Bad Idea.” Good Idea — Taking the under for Josh Rosen passing yards against a Broncos defense with a point to prove. Bad Idea — Not putting cause and correlation together to take the Broncos giving the road point in what was a stomping in the desert. Duh.

Week 6 Review: Hey, it was a good week! About the only miss that irritated me was the over/under on the Jaguars/Cowboys as Dallas erupted offensively. I did weep a silent tear when New England kicked that field goal to go up 40-33 against Kansas City because it ensured there would be no way the Patriots would cover that 3.5 number in regulation, even with the false hope of Rob Gronkowski nearly breaking that tackle that set up the game-winning field goal. Oh well.
