The games for Week 7:
L.I. Slim's Locks:
CARDINALS (-4 1/2). After last week's stunner against the limping
Cowboys, the Giants should be flat--and with their backfield injuries,
back to their normal level of futility.
Cardinals 23, Giants 15
TAMPA BAY (-6)Tony Dungy and his wonderful Bucs will skip the
Raiders impression and rebound from last week's fizzle in Green Bay to
stomp a confused Detroit team. But I still miss the uniforms.
Tampa Bay 27, Lions 13
TENNESSEE (-2) This one, I just like the feel of: Cheered on by
32,000 empty seats and a hoarse family of four, the Memphis/Nashville
Oilers score late to slide past Cincy--and the deuce.
Oilers 16, Bengals 13
The Kansas City Line
Nobody can eat 50 eggs. Nobody can cover a 14 point spread in the NFL, either. (And don't tell me that the Niners did just that last week. It was a fluke).
49'ers 31, Rams 20
Jets (-3 1/2)
"Order Tuna, not Dolphin" says the New York Post. Who am I to argue with that.
Jets 27, Dolphins 21
This has a chance to be one of the dullest games in recent NFL memory. Atlanta, with Chris Chandler back this week, has won four straight over the 'Aints. Make it five.
Falcons 10, Saints 7
