Grinding Ax Sunday: FREE NFL Picks, Week Seven Notes

FREEHOLD, NJ –  With many teams shut down for week Seven, the spotlight shines bright on a couple of match-ups. Let’s look at those and my FREE NFL Picks.

The Kansas City Chiefs travel to Nashville to battle the Tennessee Titans, who are coming off a impressive win over the Bills of Buffalo.  KC must score early and often because of the freight train named Derrick Henry, who is today’s version of Jim Brown.  The Chiefs will need Tyreek “Havoc” Hill to catch a few touchdowns, along with strong contributions from their running game and Travis Kelce. Look for Ryan Tannehill to have a good game, due to the emphasis on stopping Henry. I think this may come down to a field goal. Nashville Titans 24- Mahomes Chiefs 21

What would a Sunday be without a glimmer of hope for Big Blue?  I believe there is a glimmer of hope for the New York Giants when they host the boys in powder blue. The Carolina Panthers are not the same team without Christian McCaffrey He is the second best back in the NFL, hands down. Sam Darnold would like nothing better than to defeat another inhabitant of the Steel Cage in the Meadowlands.  Look for him to use his new found legs to keep drives alive against a defense that is void of any big play makers. Robby Anderson, another exiled player, will score and Lloyd Christmas Jones will throw another pick or two to compliment a fumble or two.

Panthers 17 Giants 10

There is a meaningful contest down the pike in Baltimore. The Ravens led by Lamar “ Action” Jackson, suit up against division rival Cincinnati Bengals featuring Boomer Esiason 2.0 Joe Burrow. While Joe is not the runner that Lamar is, he is one hellava quarterback.  Burrow to Ja’Marr Chase will put the fear into defenses for years to come. Add in every woman’s dreamy Joe Mixon and you have a dangerous offense. I like an upset in this one.

Bengals 28 Ravens 24

Feeling bad for the other Jersey team this week? The Jets must travel to play a pissed off Bill Belichick and his Patriots  Mac Jones is who we thought he was.  This kid can ball out and will do just that against an inconsistent Jets defense. Zach Wilson would be better served handing the ball off to Tevin Coleman and Michael Carter than trying to outsmart Dr. Evil and friends. If the Jets can establish a running game versus the Patriots, they have a chance. But they won’t and the Pats beat Gang Green again. Patriots 24 Jets 10

Next week will be epic! Angry Ward’s Minnesota Vikings welcome Grinding Ax and Cheesy Bruins’ Dallas Cowboys to US Bank Stadium.Will good luck charm Chris Christie travel to this game to hang with the Jones family?  More inside information to come this week!

Chime in with your delusions and be sure to stop back tomorrow for  Bills fan Junoir Blaber.
