Week 7 of the NFL season is upon us and we'll be looking for things to normalize a bit after another week chock full of upsets. Luckily, we should have a handful of games that we can chalk up as easy wins (we hope). 


Let's take a look at the best three survivor pool options from this week's slate.

3. Indianapolis Colts vs. Buffalo Bills, Sunday, 1:00 p.m. EST

Buffalo actually hasn't been as bad as we all thought they'd be, but they will have a tough matchup against a Colts' offense that has been clicking on all cylinders recently. Despite being 1-5, the Colts have been close in a lot of games so far this season and will be taking on a Bill team led by either Derek Anderson or Nathan Peterman. This should be a game the Colts finally break out for an easy win at home.

Most of these games in foggy Londontown end up with a lopsided score -- reason being, one team simply prepares better than the other. And no one is more prepared each week than Chargers QB Philip Rivers. This matchup also plays well into San Diego's strengths on offense. Look for Rivers, Melvin Gordon and Keenan Allen to all have big days en route to victory.

I would imagine most people have already used the Rams already, but if you're one of the lucky ones that still has them available this is as great a spot as any on the Week 7 slate. The Niners are on a short week after playing on Monday night in Green Bay, so the buttoned-up Rams should be able to pounce and move to 7-0.
