NFL Predictions: Week 7 Picks for Every Game

The NFL schedule still looks a little different than originally laid out as we head into Week 7 and the shifting has continued. On Thursday, the league announced that Tampa Bay-Las Vegas and Seattle-Arizona were swapping timeslots. Originally slated for "Sunday Night Football," the Buccaneers-Raiders game is now set for 4:25 p.m. ET on Sunday while Seahawks-Cardinals will move to primetime. The NFL said the change was made to ensure there would be a game Sunday night as Las Vegas is dealing with some new COVID-19 cases coming out of their bye.

The Week 7 slate kicks off with the Giants and Eagles renewing acquaintances on "Thursday Night Football." The two teams are a combined 2-9-1 but a win on Thursday could potentially put Philadelphia in sole possession of first place in the NFC East or give New York no worse than a share, depending on what happens in the Washington-Dallas game.

On Sunday, the game of the week finds Pittsburgh and Tennessee squaring off in a matchup of undefeated AFC division leaders. Originally scheduled for Week 4, this game had to be moved due to the Titans' COVID-19 outbreak. Since returning from its unexpected bye, Tennessee has dominated Buffalo and rallied to top Houston in overtime this past Sunday. The Steelers are coming off of a dominating victory over Cleveland but must move forward without middle linebacker Devin Bush, who tore his ACL against the Browns. Can Pittsburgh's defense do what other teams have been unable to lately — slow down the Titans' Ryan Tannehill/Derrick Henry tandem?

Elsewhere in the 1 p.m. window, Green Bay will try to bounce back against the aforementioned Texans while the Saints come back from their bye to face the Panthers at home. In addition to the shifted Buccaneers-Raiders matchup, the late-afternoon slot also features Chiefs and Broncos.
