Week 7 of the NFL season features some less-than-intriguing games on paper.

Could it provide some big upsets?

Here are The Arizona Republic's picks for each game in NFL Week 7, beginning with Thursday Night Football's Denver Broncos vs. Cleveland Browns game and ending with Monday Night Football's New Orleans Saints vs. Seattle Seahawks game.

Click on each game for picks and predictions for that game from other sites. All times MST.

More NFL Week 7 picks, predictions:

Thursday Night Football

Denver Broncos at Cleveland Browns, 5:20 p.m., Fox, NFL Network, Amazon

The Browns are hurting as injuries have plagued the team. We think they still have enough talent to get past a struggling Broncos team.

Prediction: Browns 21, Broncos 17

Sunday early games

Carolina Panthers at New York Giants, 10 a.m., Fox

The Panthers have not looked good over the past few weeks, but the Giants have looked really bad. 

Prediction: Panthers 27, Giants 16

New York Jets at New England Patriots, 10 a.m., CBS

Both Zach Wilson and Mac Jones are going through some growing pains and both have shown glimpses of potential greatness. The Patriots are the better team.

Prediction: Patriots 24, Jets 14

Kansas City Chiefs at Tennessee Titans, 10 a.m., CBS

The Chiefs appeared to get back on track in their Week 6 win. The Titans seem to always play them tough, but Kansas City will keep its momentum rolling.

Prediction: Chiefs 34, Titans 26

Washington Football Team at Green Bay Packers, 10 a.m., Fox

These two teams appear to be going in separate directions and we don't see that changing in Week 7.

Prediction: Packers 31, Washington 17

Atlanta Falcons at Miami Dolphins, 10 a.m., Fox

Both of these teams are coming off games in London. The problem for the Dolphins is that they did not have a bye after their game there.

Prediction: Falcons 27, Dolphins 17

Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens, 10 a.m., CBS

A win by the Bengals would move them into a tie with the Ravens in the AFC North. Easier said than done with this game being in Baltimore.

Prediction: Ravens 35, Bengals 27

NFL Week 7:

Can Joe Burrow lead the Cincinnati Bengals to a win at the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7 of the 2021 NFL season?

Sunday late games

Detroit Lions at Los Angeles Rams, 1:05 p.m., Fox

Jared Goff makes his return to Los Angeles to face his former team. It will be memorable, but for all the wrong reasons for Detroit.

Prediction: Rams 38, Lions 13

Philadelphia Eagles at Las Vegas Raiders, 1:05 p.m., Fox

The Raiders looked really good in Week 6 after Jon Gruden's ouster. Look for them to get another win in Week 7.

Prediction: Raiders 24, Eagles 16

Houston Texans at Arizona Cardinals, 1:25 p.m., CBS

Will Kyler Murray and the Cardinals have any issues with the Texans? We don't think so. Arizona will move to 7-0 ahead of a Week 8 showdown with the Packers.

Prediction: Cardinals 31, Texans 15

Chicago Bears at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 1:25 p.m., CBS

The Buccaneers have lost just one game all season. We don't think they will lose here.

Prediction: Buccaneers 28, Bears 14

Sunday Night Football

Indianapolis Colts at San Francisco 49ers, 5:20 p.m., NBC

Not exactly the best Sunday Night Football showdown, but this one could be very intriguing. We like the home team to get a much-needed win.

Prediction: 49ers 23, Colts 17

Monday Night Football

New Orleans Saints at Seattle Seahawks, 5:15 p.m., ESPN

The Seahawks get another primetime game after falling on Sunday Night Football in Week 6. They'll lose on Monday Night Football in Week 7.

Prediction: Saints 24, Seahawks 16
