After a sixth week of the 2022 season with many emotions and great surprises, Week 7 of the NFL is approaching, promising even more entertainment, and at JefeBet, we give you the best NFL predictions.
As usual, we bring you the best previews of the 14 games to be played between October 20 and 24, considering that the Bills, Rams, Vikings and Eagles rest this week. Without further ado, we present our predictions for the fourth week of the National Football League.
Week 7 of the NFL kicks off with Thursday Night Football between two teams in dire need of praise, the Saints and Cardinals.
The New Orleans team blew a nine-point lead by scoring just six points in the second half and failing to run the clock in their favour. The Saints' attack remained inconsistent without Jameis Winston and his three starting receivers.
At the same time, the defence, which has also been left on duty, has to take advantage of the fact that it has been able to defend the opposing running attacks to face Kyler Murray effectively.
Precisely the QB of the Cardinals is another that is in debt this year. He threw an interception for the third straight game, and Arizona could only score nine points against one of the worst defences in the league, the Seahawks. The Cardinals again did the job stopping their rivals, but for the third time this season, the offence did not exceed 17 points scored.
Only a game separates the Browns and Ravens in an AFC North in which division-leading Baltimore and Bengals are barely playing for .500.
The Cleveland team fell to 2-4 after losing for the third straight week as they were outscored at home by the Patriots. For the first time this year, the Browns did not add more than 20 points after being stopped in 15 by New England.
The key to the loss was that each of Cleveland's four turnovers ended in points for their rivals.
The Ravens couldn't during their visit to the Giants by conceding a TD with 1:41 left to end the match, leading them to a 20-24 loss.
The key to the debacle was Lamar Jackson's sixth interception this season, allowing New York to get the ball with just over 3:30 on the game clock. The defence allowed just 283 total yards but couldn't stop that last drive.
Week 7 of the NFL brings us the divisional matchup between the Buccaneers and Panthers, two NFC South teams that have just lost their respective games.
Despite maintaining the group lead with a 3-3 record, Tom Brady and Tampa Bay continue to leave many doubts after losing to the Steelers 18-20 on Sunday.
The Bucs' offence could only add 304 total yards against a Pittsburgh defence that had just given up 552 yards and 38 points to the Bills. As for their defence, for the second time this season, the team allowed at least 20 points, and this came at the hands of an offence averaging just 16.6 points per game.
For their part, the Panthers are still in free fall after losing 10-24 to the Rams and leaving their mark at 1-5.
The Carolina team maintains its scoring problems, and for the fourth time this season, they did not exceed 16 points in a game. They barely surpassed 200 total yards (203), while the defence allowed 24 points or more for the fourth time.
With two victories achieved last Sunday, the Falcons and Bengals share the lead in their respective divisions by going 3-3.
Atlanta is one of the season's pleasant surprises, and this weekend they surprised again by defeating the 49ers 14-28, one of the best defences on the circuit. In addition to getting another rushing, QB Marcus Mariota needed just 129 yards through the air to add his second two-TD duel this season. As for the defence dressed as San Francisco by intercepting Jimmy-G twice while returning a recovered fumble to the end zone.
For its part, Cincinnati recovered from its loss to the Ravens and came from behind on the board to beat the Saints 30-26. Joe Burrow had his best performance of 2022 by adding 300 yards with three TDs through the air and another on the ground, while the defence, after giving up 20 points in the first half, only allowed six points in the second to allow the QB to get back on the scoreboard.
Despite having one of the best offences on the circuit, Detroit went on vacation receiving a shutout 0-29 against a good defence like the Patriots.
The scenario that does not change much this Sunday is when they have to visit Dallas, another team with one of the league's best defences.
Unfortunately for them, on Sunday night, that team area did not have its best performance losing 17-26 to the undefeated Eagles. For the first time this season, the Cowboys gave up more than 20 points to an opponent, while Cooper Rush had his worst outing for Dak Prescott by throwing three interception passes and just one touchdown.
