It’s time for some football here at SportsTalkFeed as Week 7 of the NFL season is about to get underway and two heated rivals will kick things off, the Packers will look to put away the 1-5 Bears but Brian Hoyer has bad news on his mind for Packers fans as he’ll look to give the Packers their second straight home loss in five days tonight.

Sam Bradford will be facing off against some familiar faces but he’ll be doing it with the best in football as the Vikings have been magnificent so far sitting atop of the NFL at 6-0 but now they welcome in the Eagles, losers of two straight and will be looking to give the ol’ Philly faithful some restored faith by knocking off the best team in football.

Two of the AFC’s elite will square off this Sunday but unfortunately, there’s nothing elite about Landry Jones’ game as he’ll look to do the unthinkable and knock off Tom Brady in Foxboro. Brady is back and that means bad news for the rest of the NFL, the Patriots will look to supplant themselves as the undisputed best team in the AFC Sunday.

The Seahawks will travel to the desert to take on the Cardinals in a primetime showdown that should shake up the NFC playoff picture.

AFC Game of the Week

New England Patriots @ Pittsburgh Steelers 

Promo: It’s not the quite the match-up people thought it was going to be but it is still Patriots vs Steelers. Two teams that have been atop of the AFC for the past decade doing battle again.

Tom Brady is back and hasn’t missed a beat as he’ll now face a bend but don’t break Steelers defense, however, last week the Steelers got torched by the Dolphins on the ground so don’t be surprised if Bill Belichick looks to exploit and Brady ends up with just a decent stat line. For the Steelers, it is not good as their star QB Ben Roethlisberger is now out for who knows how long after getting surgery this past Monday on a torn meniscus. Landry Jones is not a good QB and the only reason why I even have the Steelers scoring 10 points is because it is nearly impossible to not score a touchdown when you have Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown in an offense. Look for the Patriots to grind one out in impressive fashion.

Prediction: 28-10, Patriots

NFC Game of the Week 

Seattle Seahawks @ Arizona Cardinals 

Promo: The cream of the crop in the NFC West is set to do battle(sorry Rams) but the Seahawks are just on another level. This isn’t to say the Cardinals aren’t a good team but they’ve basically just beat up on bad teams so far. Holding a Jets offense that has only scored two offensive touchdowns since week 2 is not impressive. Carson Palmer did look better against the Jets but he wasn’t asked to do too much, this will be much different against the Seahawks.

This game should be a close one throughout until a costly turnover late gives the Seahawks the win.

Prediction: 24-14, Seahawks
