Nearing the halfway point of the NFL season, I got back on track in Week 7. The league is taking shape, and the 49ers are in the thick of an NFC West race. Up to this point, no game has been this big for the 49ers in this 2020 season. Let's get to the picks.

Season Record: 60-45
49ers Picks Record: 3-4

Best & Worst Picks of Week 7

My Best Pick: Cardinals 38 - Seahawks 34
Final Score: Cardinals 37 - Seahawks 34

My Worst Pick: Bears 19 - Rams 17
Final Score: Rams 24 - Bears 10

Week 8 Picks


Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers (-2.5) - Panthers get an easy home win vs. a bad Falcons team Panthers 23 - Falcons 16

Indianapolis Colts at Detroit Lions (+2.5) - Detroit's defense forces 3 turnovers from Rivers Lions 27 - Colts 20

Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers (-6.5) - Vikings defense cannot stop Rodgers Packers 34 - Vikings 28

New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills (-3.5) - Patriots are desperate, and they find a way to stay alive EDIT: Pick change 10/29/30, Edleman out, Bills romp Bills 37 - Patriots 18

Tennessee Titans at Cincinnati Bengals (+5.5) - Bengals get blown out badly Titans 35 - Bengals 16

Las Vegas Raiders at Cleveland Browns (-2.5) - Raiders offense steamrolls the Browns Raiders 41 - Browns 30

New York Jets at Kansas City Chefs (-19.5) - Quite possibly the worst mismatch of the year Chiefs 34 - Jets 10

Los Angeles Rams at Miami Dolphins (+3.5) -Tua shocks the world with a stunning debut Dolphins 27 - Rams 17

Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens (-3.5) - Ravens deal their familiar foes their first loss Ravens 23 - Steelers 20

Los Angeles Chargers at Denver Broncos (+3) - Chargers in a squeaker Chargers 24 - Broncos 22

New Orleans Saints at Chicago Bears (+4) - Bears defense is too much for Brees Bears 23 - Saints 14

Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles (pick em) - Dallas is imploding, Philly benefits from this Eagles 41 - Cowboys 10

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New York Giants (+10.5) - Brady's Bucs cruise to 6-2 Buccaneers 26 - Giants 12

49ers at Seahawks (-3.5)

Why SF Wins: Three words: all white jerseys. The last time these 2 teams played, LB Dre Greenlaw completely stuffed Seahawks TE Jacob Hollister at the 1-yard line and sent the 49ers to the playoffs as the #1 seed in the NFC. This alone will be the reason why the 49ers win. Just kidding. The real reason the 49ers will win this game is due to their recently stabilized offensive line and Seattle's league-worst defense. The 49ers offense just hung 34 points on a Bill Belichick defense, so they should have no problems with Seattle's impotent defense. Russell Wilson has been an MVP-caliber player in 2020, but a rejuvenated 49ers pass defense led by the cornerback duo of Jason Verrett and Emmanuel Moseley will limit Seattle just enough for the 49ers to come out of Seattle with a humongous win.

Why SF Loses: Pardon my lack of impartiality, but it ain't happening. The Seahawks scammed their way to 5-0, and Arizona exposed that in Week 7. Let us not forget that this is a team that was on the brink of losing to the 1-5 Vikings, and would have lost the game if not for a bad 4th down call by Mike Zimmer with less 2 minutes to go. Seattle is much more of a 4-3 team than it is a 5-1 team and the 49ers will put this on full display on Sunday.

Prediction: As confident I am the 49ers will win, it will still be a hard fought battle to get the W. In the end, Jimmy Garoppolo will play the hero and put up a gaudy stat line while leading San Francisco to its biggest win of the season so far. 49ers 41 - Seahawks 27

This week will be one that determines whether the 49ers should pack it in, or keep on fighting. In a prior article, I wrote that if the 49ers managed to be 5-5 after 10 games, they would have a chance to make the playoffs. The New Orleans Saints stand between the 49ers and any reasonable chance to compete for a playoff spot in 2020. Week 10 will be a big one. In Week 9 the 49ers disappointed, but my picks hit big. I hit on 9/13 of my picks, so let's keep that rolling and pick the Week 10 games: Best & Worst Picks of Week 9 My Best Pick: Bills 43 - Seahawks 37 Final Score: Bills 44 - Seahawks 34 My Worst Pick: Buccaneers
