NFL Football 2023 Week 7 Preview. The last two undefeated teams, San Francisco and Philadelphia, went down against surprising adversaries in Week 6. That puts the Detroit Lions on par with them in the NFC. The Bills barely got by the Giants, and injuries are starting to pile up for many teams.
Week 7 NFL Schedule and Lines
More teams are on their Bye, but this week is filled with games that have less than a field goal spread. Keep your limits in because these matches could go either way.

The Seahawks Need to Fix Their Red-Zone Finish
The Seahawks and Cardinals are coming off of a loss in Week 6. Seattle visited Cincinnati (13-17), while Arizona traveled to Los Angeles to lose to the Rams 9-26.
The Seahawks will host the Cardinals and should have no problem winning this one. Their defense is top-five in rushing defense. The Cardinals have had five turnovers in the last two games and have lost their previous three.
If Seattle finds a way to win their red-zone battles, they will easily cover the spread in Week 7.
Are the Browns on a Roll Going Into Indianapolis?
Indianapolis’ Gardner Minshew is expected to remain as starting quarterback as rookie Anthony Richardson will probably miss the rest of the season with an injured right shoulder. Minshew went 33-for-55 for 329 passing yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions in their game against Jacksonville.
Cleveland’s defense proved they are the best in the NFL, averaging 200.4 yards per game – and beating the 49ers in Week 6. Their quarterback, Deshaun Watson, also has a bad shoulder and may miss this game with the Colts. He missed the game against the 49ers, and they still won, so they should be fine to win and cover. But watch for an improving Minshew.
Giants Likely Without Jones for Commanders Game
Quarterback Daniel Jones may miss Week 7 as his neck injury has not fully healed. His replacement, Tyrod Taylor, played well against the Bills in Week 6, except for a blunder at the end of the first half that may have cost them a touchdown – and the game. They eventually lost 9-14.
The Commanders haven’t played consistently, so it’s hard to tell what to expect against the Giants. Sam Howell had three touchdowns in their win over the Falcons in Week 6, and he’s only thrown one interception in his last three games. But that gets overlooked when you learn he’s been sacked 34 times in six games.
The key is for the Giants’ defense to put pressure on Howell. If they can keep him handcuffed, maybe they can stop their four-game losing streak. Keep your limits in. It’s hard to call this one.
Fighting for the NFC South
After a Bye week, the Buccaneers should be well-rested when they host the Falcons on Sunday. Tampa Bay has one of the worst running games (29th at 78.8 yards per game), but they’ve managed to win three of their first four games this season. And they covered the spread in all of those wins.
The Falcons lost three of their last four games, scoring only 13 points in the two road losses. Their quarterback, Desmond Ridder, is throwing more, but he had three interceptions against Washington in Week 6. And the ground game with star rookie Bijan Robinson isn’t panning out.
Atlanta should be better offensively with Robinson, Pitts, and Drake, but they aren’t. Until that changes, Tampa Bay will win, cover, and continue to lead the NFC South.
