Pro Football Network: Rams 31, Lions 17
Ben Rolfe writes: "The Lions were an abject disaster in Week 6, while the Rams were sublime. If this were an early kickoff in Detroit, I’d give the Lions a shred of hope. However, the Rams just proved they could go on the road and destroy a bad team, so what will they do to this bad team at home? This should be a comprehensive victory, but laying 15 points in the NFL is simply too much."
Sportsnaut: Rams 41, Lions 10
Vincent Frank writes: "Oh boy. Jared Goff going up against his former Rams team. Matthew Stafford taking on a Lions squad he starred with for a dozen seasons. This is a major storyline heading into an otherwise lopsided Week 7 matchup. There’s no reason to believe that Detroit will be able to stay even remotely close against the Rams on the road. Expect a big-time blowout."
Draft Kings: Rams will cover in Week 7 game vs. Lions
Cole Huff writes: "Los Angeles will open the week as huge favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook. The spread will likely finish in the double-digits, so you could lean to either side depending on the kind of bettor you are. The Rams’ offense won’t have any issues chewing up the Detroit defense while the Lions’ offense will struggle in Jared Goff’s return to SoFi stadium. Expect nothing short of a lopsided outcome."
Sports Illustrated: Rams 42, Lions 28
Christian Booher writes: "In its reunion with former franchise quarterback Matthew Stafford, Detroit remembers what it’s missing. Stafford will have the offense rolling, and Detroit is unable to complete a gutsy second-half comeback."

Lions Wire: Lions will lose to Rams in Week 7 game
Jeff Risdon writes: "As much as the quarterbacks swapped between the teams here will be the focus, this nationally televised late-afternoon game will also be a not-so-friendly reminder that Aaron Donald might in fact be Superman. The Rams’ exceptional special teams help guard against the Lions pulling off the upset. Expect both Jared Goff and Matthew Stafford to play well against their former teams, too."
Sportsnaut: Rams 35, Lions 10
Matt Johnson writes: "Jared Goff will see this matchup as an opportunity for revenge. Sean McVay will personally fire up the Rams’ defense before the game. Even without the speech, Los Angeles dominates this game. With McVay encouraging his defense to prove a point, it won’t be pretty for Goff."
