Things quieted down in NFL survivor pool picks last week and all three of The Duel's Week 6 picks took care of business. Only four teams across the league lost in true upset fashion. The Buffalo Bills were, perhaps, the biggest surprise of the week and lost to the Tennessee Titans as 6-point favorites on Monday Night Football. Dallas Cowboys pickers also had to sweat things out on Sunday, but ultimately prevailed.

We still haven't seen any massive upsets as of Week 6, meaning survivor pools remain crowded and competitive.

If you're still rocking, here are The Duel's top NFL survivor pool picks for Week 7.

NFL Survivor Week 7 Picks

3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (vs CHI)

At 5-1, it's never a bad idea to pick the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if you haven't yet. Tampa Bay heads home to take on the struggling Chicago Bears with another massive spread, 12.5 points. Chicago remains without any offensive identity and scores the third-least points in the league (16.3 per game). The Bears also enter this matchup possibly without their top two running backs and will have to air it out to succeed. Tampa Bay's secondary may be beat up, but it's a good idea to trust that group ahead of rookie quarterback Justin Fields.

2. Los Angeles Rams (vs DET)

Week 7 is full of massive point spreads, showing some favorable matchups for Survivor Pool picks. The Los Angeles Rams own the second-most favorable spread in Week 7 at 15.5 points against the winless Detroit Lions. Sure, there's a Matthew Stafford-Jared Goff revenge factor here, but that's the only thing possibly in Detroit's favor. Los Angeles showed us they can beat up on bad teams last week, pounding the New York Giants by a score of 38-11.

1. Arizona Cardinals (vs HOU)

The Arizona Cardinals play host to the struggling Houston Texans and present us with the largest spread of the week, a massive 17.5 points. This pick seems like a no-brainer, as do any teams facing the Davis Mills-led Texans. Arizona looks to remain undefeated thanks to their stifling defense, which ranks second in points allowed (18.2), and should have no issues against a Texans offense thank ranks second-to-last in points scored (15.3).
