That is going to have to stop if Philadelphia is going to make a run to the postseason. The Saints have won four of the last five in the series with Dallas. The Bears have won five of the last six against the Rams, but the two teams have yet to play since the franchise relocated to Los Angeles from St. Louis. That win, 25-17, came at Heinz Field, one of the more difficult places to play in the NFL.

They had a tough loss in Green Bay just a few weeks ago, and will need a win against the Giants in order to keep pace. The Lions’ problem this season has mostly been their defense, and more specifically, their pass rush, or lack thereof. They haven’t been able to get to the quarterback at all in 2019 and thus have resorted to risky blitzes that often leave their defensive backs out to dry against competent receivers. The Dallas Cowboys are right back in the thick of the playoff hunt with three straight victories. Their fate is likely in the hands of the legal system as running back Ezekiel Elliott awaits a six-game suspension.
The NFC championship game brings two of the best offenses in the NFL together again. New Orleans and the Los Angeles Rams met at midseason in New Orleans. The Saints prevailed in a game where New Orleans QB Drew Brees threw four touchdown passes.
The reason the Eagles will play as a home underdog is, of course, because of the loss of their starting quarterback Carson Wentz to a a total noob season-ending knee injury. Foles took over for Wentz late in the season after the Eagles starter tore an ACL. Foles, much like Keenum, managed Philadelphia very well last week in its win over Atlanta.

Here are the NFL Week 7 picks, predictions, and odds for Monday’s game as of 9 AM ET on October 21. In the highest spread of the week, the undefeated Cardinals take on the lowly Houston Texans. Similar to what I said in the Lions vs. Rams game — this is just too many points. As much as I like Zach Wilson, I think he still has a long way to go before becoming a capable NFL QB. Out of all my Week 7 picks and predictions, this is my best bet.
However, Joe Burrow and the Bengals have also started to find their groove with the connection between Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase lighting up the NFL. I expect this to be a high-scoring affair, but the Ravens should be able to squeeze out the win in the end. In this AFC North showdown, the Ravens and Bengals will look to put their mark on the division, with both of them fighting for the top spot. The Ravens are laying nearly a TD at home, which seems excessive for a division game. On the other side, you’re also selling the Carolina Panthers higher than they really are, since their game against the Minnesota Vikings went to overtime really only because of some serious noise.
The leading rusher is Melvin Gordon who has just 67 yards on 27 carries. Defensive end Joey Bosa (1.5) and OLB Melvin Ingram (2.5) have combined for four sacks. The pair will have to apply pressure to Chiefs QB Alex Smith and slow down Hunt and the Chiefs’ running game. The Chiefs, off to a 2-0 start, look like they might be the best team in football right now.

His primary target is Adam Thielen, who is having the best season of any NFL receiver. Thielen has 78 catches for 947 yards and seven touchdowns so far. In Minnesota’s win over Detroit on Nov. 4, Thielen failed to surpass 100 yards receiving for the first time this season. Carolina has had some difficulty running the football as of late. The week before, in a blowout loss to Pittsburgh, the Panthers ran for 95 yards and were held to just 242 total. Quarterback Cam Newton was sacked five times by the Steelers and three times by the Lions.
That is the other problem concerning Detroit – the lack of a running game. With Theo Riddick out of the lineup, the Lions have left the offense up to QB Matthew Stafford and his cast of receivers. Zach Zenner provided a little spark against the Cowboys, but not enough.
Minnesota has won the last three games in the series and has won eight of the past 12 overall. All four of the Vikings losses were at Soldier Field the site of Sunday night’s game. While the Eagles have struggled to run the ball effectively, where they really need improvement is on defense. Where they were a Top 10 defense in most statistical categories a year ago, they are not in 2018. In consecutive losses to Dallas and New Orleans, the Eagles allowed a total of 75 points.
