In case you missed the last 24 hours of Jim Irsay saying crazy things his coaches would probably prefer he didn't, Peyton Manning's return to Indianapolis headlines the Week 7 slate. However, there are 14 other games happening, all with some level of implications for the standings and the playoffs.
A key divisional matchup between the Ravens and the Steelers has our panel divided this week. Understandably so. The Ravens are a tough team to predict, and the Steelers remembering how to win last week could make this a close contest. That's not the only division game of note. The Jets will try to get a win against a hobbled Patriots team, and the Bills will look to exploit a weak Dolphins offensive line to pull off the upset.
On the other side of the spectrum, all five panelists are predicting that the Chiefs will remain undefeated after a visit from the Texans on Sunday. And the Manning/Luck showdown? Four took the elder statesman of quarterbacking to win in his return home, but there was one holdout picking the next generation of great Colts quarterbacks to take a big leap toward the future this week.
Here are the picks for Week 7.
