NFL Week 7 NFL picks: Staff predictions for Detroit Lions at Miami Dolphins

Our staff is split for Sunday’s road game.

To say the Detroit Lions have been unpredictable would be a complete understatement. In our weekly FanPulse surveys—where we poll a select few of our readers—the consensus pick has been wrong every single week. They’re literally 0-5 and predicting the outcome of the Lions’ games, and they aren’t alone in having a hard time figuring out what’s going to happen on Sundays (or Mondays).

Our entire staff right now is .500 or worse in predicting Lions games. Only Kellie Rowe and Andrew Kato have .500 records, but that’s likely only because they missed a week of picks. The majority of the staff sits at 2-3, which is admittedly a lot better than 0-5, but nowhere near where we want to be.

And there are going to be a lot of wrong picks again this week, because the staff is somewhat split in picking the Week 7 matchup between the Lions and Dolphins. This week, 10 of 15 staffers are picking the Lions, who are actually three-point favorites in Miami. Check out our picks below.

Kellie Rowe (2-2): 30-24 Lions
Andrew Kato (2-2): 20-17 Dolphins
Kent Lee Platte (2-3): 20-7 Lions
Chris Perfett (2-3): 25-20 Dolphins
Alex Reno (2-3): 35-17 Lions
Ryan Mathews (2-3): 35-28 Lions
Jeremy Reisman (2-3): 26-20 Dolphins
Hamza Baccouche (2-3): 27-21 Dolphins
Justin Simon (2-3): 24-20 Lions
Mike Payton (2-3): 23-17 Lions
Kyle Yost (1-4): 23-20 Lions
John Whiticar (1-4): 31-28 Dolphins
Levi Blue (1-4): 27-17 Lions
Jerry Mallory (1-4): 31-20 Lions
Mansur Shaheen (0-5): 28-13 Lions
FanPulse (0-5): Lions by 5
