Week 7 NFL picks: Cardinals vs. Vikings

Patrick McDermott

Experts weigh in on who will win Week 7's Sunday showdown between the Cardinals and Vikings.

The Minnesota Vikings are 6.5-point favorites heading into their Week 7 matchup with the Arizona Cardinals, and according to most NFL experts, the Cardinals have little to no chance.

The Vikings (4-2) are winners of three of their last four games, but are coming off a disappointing 38-26 loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 6. The Cardinals (4-2) started off a surprising 4-0, but have dropped their last two games and head into Sunday's matchup without starting quarterback Kevin Kolb, who will be out for several weeks with a rib injury. It appears to be a tale of two 4-2 teams headed in opposite directions.

ESPN's crew of 12 experts unanimously agree that the Vikings will down the Cardinals on Sunday, as do Yahoo's trio of prognosticators. Five of CBSSports.com's experts like the Vikings, while three of them (Jason La Canfora, Josh Katzowitz and Ryan Wilson) think the John Skelton-led Cardinals can pull off an upset.

Kickoff for Sunday's game is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET at Mall of America Field and the game will be televised on FOX.
