Week 7 NFL Picks; AFC North showdown in Baltimore as Ravens host Bengals

It's only Week 7 and some teams are barely hanging on due to some major injuries. Cleveland lost Kareem Hunt and Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah to significant injuries. Denver lost Alexander Johnson, adding to their linebacker woes. Kadarius Toney, Parris Campbell, Josh Myers, Patrick Queen, Baker Mayfield, and Nick Kwiatkoski suffered injuries, as well. What was an intriguing matchup between former AFC rivals in the Browns and Broncos on Thursday Night has turned into a giant injury fest. Case Keenum will start for Cleveland and it could be an ugly game. Derrick Henry missed practice today (undisclosed) and that brings up a question for his status against Kansas City on Sunday. The Titans, coming off a thrilling victory against Buffalo, could put a stranglehold on the AFC South with a victory over the Chiefs. After starting 3-0, Carolina has lost three straight and needs to rebound against the Giants in New Jersey. Jared Goff makes his return to Los Angeles to face the Rams. Matthew Stafford will play his old team for the first time and are 15-point favorites at home. Rookie Justin Fields faces his toughest test to date as the Bears travel to Tampa Bay to face the defending champions. In what could be the game of the week, we find out if the Bengals are for real as they travel to Baltimore in an AFC North statement game.
