NFL Week 7 schedule: 5 teams on upset alert

Looking over the NFL Week 7 schedule, there are a litany of teams on upset alert, led by the five squads listed out below.

5. New Orleans Saints (-4.5) at Seattle Seahawks

The Saints are coming off their bye week at 3-2, firmly in the race for an NFC playoff spot. Better yet, they’re going to Seattle and getting a backup quarterback in Geno Smith while Russell Wilson recovers from a finger injury. Without Wilson, the Seahawks are a below-average team, but Seattle hung tough last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers and at home could be dangerous if Saints quarterback Jameis Winston takes a few chances.

4. San Francisco 49ers (-4) vs. Indianapolis Colts

The Sunday night game has two teams many thought would be contenders struggling to get back to .500. San Francisco has last week off and now welcomes in the Colts as it looks for its first win since Week 2. Meanwhile, the Colts are coming a 31-3 victory over the Houston Texans, but now try to beat a quality team in its building. If Carson Wentz continues to play well, the Colts have the talent to pull an upset.

3. Las Vegas Raiders (-3) vs. Philadelphia Eagles

The Raiders should score points in this one. Derek Carr is having a terrific year and tight end Darren Waller should feast against the Eagles’ linebackers. However, Philadelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts could be a tough assignment for Las Vegas, which likes to get aggressively up the field. The Eagles also have a tremendous group on the defensive line, capable of putting Carr under pressure. If the Raiders aren’t careful, they could get picked off by Philadelphia in Sin City.

2. Kansas City Chiefs (-4.5) at Tennessee Titans

Kansas City has been a mess all year. The Chiefs have 14 turnovers to lead the league, and the defense has amassed just two takeaways — both last week — since Week 1. Furthermore, the unit is at the bottom of the NFL in a litany of categories, and now faces an offense with Julio Jones (maybe), A.J. Brown (probably) and Derrick Henry. While the Chiefs are the better team, the Titans are more than capable of pulling the upset, let alone covering the spread.

1. Atlanta Falcons (-2.5) at Miami Dolphins

The Falcons are always a good bet to be in this column if they’re favored. That’s especially true when they’re the road, albeit with the Dolphins at a serious rest deficit after coming back from London while Atlanta had the week off. Still, Miami has enough talent to win here, and the Falcons’ speciality has long been blowing games.
