Week 7 Picks Present a Chance to Bounce Back

Week 7 Picks Present a Chance to Bounce Back Last week, I was upset in more ways than one. Kathryn Tappen beat me like I stole something on the fantasy football front, and just when I start to spread my game-picking knowledge across the Internet, teams like the Raiders decided to play "real football."

Needless to say, I’m a competitor, and I have to keep in stride and give it the ol’ college try. This week, I’m positive that these will be the picks to hang your hat on. Take my word for it.

49ers (3-2) at Texans (3-3)
Samurai Mike has decided that his team "can" win with Vernon Davis. Go Niners!

Packers (3-2) at Browns (1-5)
Just like last week, Derek Anderson and Brady Quinn won't get the job done. Go with Mr. Aaron Rodgers and his land of make believe.

Chargers (2-3) at Chiefs (1-5)
The Chiefs and Matt Cassel did it last week, and now they have momentum.

Colts (5-0) at Rams (0-6)
"Cut that meat." Gotta go with the best pitchman in the biz. Peyton Manning and the Colts.

Vikings (6-0) at Steelers (4-2)
This is where things get tricky this week. Percy Harvin may be a game-time scratch, so although I think the Vikes are really good, Big Ben and the “Stillers” have the hardware. Terrible towels in full effect.

Patriots (4-2) at Buccaneers (0-6)
Tom Brady and his suit on the team plane made Harry Connick Jr. look like a hobo. Patriot power!

Jets (3-3) at Raiders (2-4)
Sorry, JaMarcus Russell, I doubted your team last week. This week, I doubt Rex Ryan and Co. The Silver and Black will attack, and Big Sea must know something we don’t. He predicted playoffs for Oakland.

Bills (2-4) at Panthers (2-3)
All I have to say about these two teams is that they both need to get better. The Bills have the edge in my book.

Bears (3-2) at Bengals (4-2)
Once again with Halloween approaching, I think back to when I was Walter Payton for a day. But I still realize when “Da Bears” are overmatched. Chad Ochocinco will lead the Bengals to a win.

Falcons (4-1) at Cowboys (3-2)
In my opinion, the Falcons are quite possibly the most underrated team in the league. The Saints get all of the publicity coming out of the NFC South. The "Boys," on the other hand, are very overrated. Matty Ice all day.

Saints (5-0) at Dolphins (2-3)
The Wildcat offense isn’t a gimmick. It’s a legit scheme most teams have trouble stopping. But the Saints won't have that problem this week.

Cardinals (3-2) at Giants (5-1)
Eli Manning won't lose two weeks in a row. Enough said.

Eagles (3-2) at Redskins (2-4)
In addition to their name being extremely offensive, so is their style of play. Eagles bounce back after last week's loss to the Raiders.

When you clean up this weekend and make all of your friends think that you're the new Kreskin when it comes to hitting winners on the head, keep it to yourself. But let everyone know that Cole Wright has some sweet picks on NESN.com. This week, I hope to have much better luck, so check back next week to see how I did.
