Welcome to the Monday edition of the Pick Six newsletter!
If you’re a Buccaneers fan or a Packers fan, I’d probably just go ahead and skip today’s newsletter because it’s just going to make you even sadder about your team than you already are. The only thing worse than Aaron Rodgers getting outplayed by a guy (Taylor Heinicke) who was in the XFL two years ago was Tom Brady losing to a team (the Panthers) that traded away its best player last week while also getting outplayed by a guy (P.J. Walker) who was in the XFL two years ago. Maybe that’s a sign that we should just turn this into an XFL newsletter. 
Anyway, the Packers and Buccaneers won’t be the only two teams we talk about today, we’ve got a lot to cover, so let’s get to the rundown. 
As always, here’s your weekly reminder to tell all your friends to sign up for the Pick Six newsletter. To get your friends to sign up, all you have to do is click here and then share this link with them. 
It’s Monday, which can only mean one thing: I stayed up until 3 a.m. last night recording a podcast with Will Brinson and Ryan Wilson that touched on everything you need to know about Week 7, and let me just say, it’s probably for the best that you listen. We covered all 12 games from Sunday, which means we likely spent some time talking about your favorite team. 
One thing we do every week is hand out our weekly winners and losers from Sunday’s action. Here’s a look at who made our list.  
Ryan Wilson
Will Brinson
John Breech
Not only did we list our winners and losers, but we also recapped every game from Sunday. To listen to today’s episode, be sure to click here. You can also watch the entire episode on YouTube by clicking here
Hopefully we won’t need to have an injury roundup every week, but there were so many injuries around the NFL over the weekend that we definitely needed one for today.
Here’s a look at the biggest injuries from Week 7: 
Every week I team up with six of my colleagues here at to hand out grades, and this week, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady both failed out of our imaginary football school. 
Here’s a look at the grades from two notable games that were played Sunday:
Panthers 21-3 over Buccaneers (Click here for full recap)
Commanders 23-21 over Packers (Click here for full recap)
As for the other 24 grades we handed out on Sunday, you can check those out by clicking here
Every Sunday night, I get an email from our research department here at CBS Sports, and every Sunday, that email always includes some amazingly wild facts about the games that were just played. 
With that in mind, here are 10 crazy facts about Week 7: 
If you see any other fun facts, feel free to tweet them at me
Bill Belichick earned his 324th career win last week, which put him in a tie with former Bears coach George Halas for the second-most victories in NFL history. Fittingly, Belichick will now attempt to pass Halas by beating the Bears. 
My good buddy Jared Dubin wrote our deep-dive preview for this game here at, and here’s how he sees the game playing out:

If you’re thinking about betting on the game, Jordan Dajani put together a full gambling preview (odds via Caesars Sportsbook). You can check out Dajani’s full gambling preview by clicking here, but if you don’t feel like clicking over, here’s one prop from both of us for tonight’s game. 
Finally, if you’re wondering who we’re picking, here’s who we have tonight in a game where the Patriots are currently favored by 8.5 points: 
Dubin’s pick: Patriots 24-13 over Bears
Sullivan’s pick: 
Patriots 28-17 over Bears
My pick: Patriots 27-16 over Bears
Over on our picks page, the straight-up choice is unanimous with all eight of our experts picking the Patriots to win and seven of us taking the Patriots to cover. 
It’s been a  busy weekend in the NFL, and since it’s nearly impossible to keep track of everything that happened, I went ahead and put together a roundup for you.
