Week 6 of the NFL season had a few marquee matchups, headlined by Buffalo’s visit to Kansas City and the NFC,
East showdown between the Eagles and Cowboys in Philadelphia. Even Monday Night Football’s AFC West divisional
clash between the Chargers and Broncos was a decent treat on the schedule, despite Denver’s recent form.
Week 7 features very little of the same drama.
That’s not to say there won’t be good games, there just isn’t the same type of hype.
Here’s a look at some early lines and matchups for Week 7 as Week 6 comes to a close. (Lines are courtesy of BetMGM and are subject to change.)
Thursday Night Football New Orleans (+1.5) @ Arizona (total 45.5)
We’ve been treated to a few clunkers on Thursday Night Football in recent weeks.
Watching Colts-Broncos and then Commanders-Bears in consecutive weeks will make watching these two struggling NFC
teams feel like a treat. At the very least, the return of Cardinals receiver DeAndre Hopkins is something to pay attention to.
Sunday 1 p.m. (EST) window Green Bay (-4.5) @ Washington (total 41.5)
The Packers have consecutive losses as 7-point favorites (or more) for the first time since 1970.
And it feels like they should be bigger than 4.5-point favorites in Washington.
It feels like a must-win game for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, and that’s typically worth a watch.
