Dr. J's NFL Outlook for Week Seven

<b>Last Week:</b> (11-3) <br> <b>Season Totals:</b> (57-31) <br><br> Anyone else wondering which old school Dick Vermeil and Bill Parcells attended and which old school Dan Reeves and Marty Schottenheimer went? Because I'm pretty damn sure that it couldn't have been the same one, not the way Reeves and Schottenheimer seem to be going the way of the Dodo...

Baltimore at Cincinnati
Marvin Lewis gets his first look at his old defense as the Bengals head coach. His team is improving, but they aren't ready yet. Ravens win.

Dallas at Detroit
How 'bout dem Cowboys? Bill Parcells has his team believing in his system. And why not? Dallas stays hot with a win.

Denver at Minnesota
Jake Plummer may not be ready for the game. Daunte Culpepper could be. I like the Vikings at home and with this offense.

Green Bay at St. Louis
The Packers blew two leads of 14 and 17 points twice against the Chiefs. Now, they'll get another shot at the same offense, only faster. Going with the Rams in a game where the over should be about 90 points.

New England at Miami
The AFC East heats up with this matchup between two tough defenses. I'm going with the Dolphins on this one. I don't think Tom Brady can repeat his 8 of 21, 112 yard performance last week and expect his team to win again.

New Orleans at Atlanta
Can anyone tell me where exactly the Falcons got their lone win of the year, better yet, tell me how? Saints win.

Philadelphia at N.Y. Giants
The Eagles and Giants have both been struggling on the offensive side of the ball and both their QBs have been right in the middle of it. Which team will find it's way back first? I'll say that it's the Eagles. Let's see if Rush was really right when he said the Eagles defense was the key to their success.

San Diego at Cleveland
The Browns are suddenly looking at .500 and need a win to stay within a game of first in the AFC North. The Chargers are just looking for their first win in nearly a calendar year. Browns stay hot with William Green running through a hapless Chargers defense.

Tennessee at Carolina
Are the Panthers the NFL's best team? They'll get a big test for their defense when perhaps the NFL's best QB, Steve McNair comes to town. But so far, this gritty Panthers team has taken on all comers and all challenges. Tough game, but I'll pick the Panthers to win.

N.Y. Jets at Houston
The Jets just manhandled Drew Bledsoe last week with seven sacks. David Carr better take his Advil. Jets win their second straight.

Chicago at Seattle
If the Cubs were in the World Series this Sunday, would anyone care what happens to these Bears? Look for Seattle to win easily and look for Rex Grossman to start next week against Detroit.

Tampa Bay at San Francisco
I'd like to see Terrell Owens go ballistic this week when his offense can't get a yard against this raging Buccaneers defense. Bucs win.

Washington at Buffalo
The Bills looked like the NFL's best team after two weeks, but then have been squashed offensively. The Redskins have been up and down, mainly due to their inability to keep Patrick Ramsey upright. I like the Redskins in what should be a very entertaining game.

ABC Monday Night Football
Kansas City at Oakland
Want to know what's wrong with the Raiders? Watch Monday night and count how many times you can guess the play when Rich Gannon steps behind center. The Chiefs haven't played exceptionally well on defense, but with the predictability of the Raiders' offense and their lack of speed in the wide receiving corps, the Chiefs should have no problem staying undefeated.
