Two questions stick out heading into Week 7:

Dolphins (0-5) and Bengals (0-6) are winless, which team will win first?

Patriots (6-0) and 49ers (5-0) are undefeated, which team will lose first?

1. Dolphins. 2. 49ers. (Now that I've said that, watch my predictions go to smithereens like they usually do.)

Bengals could beat the Jaguars this week. Patriots may be going 16-0.

The Dolphins have 1 of the  worst rosters in recent memory and as a Cardinals fan, I can attest to what a terrible quarterback Rosen is. The Dolphins could easily pull a 2008 Lions.

The Patriots will stay undefeated longer than the 49ers. The Patriots are a better team than the 49ers and the AFC is MUCH MUCH weaker than the NFC. Hard to imagine a team going 16-0 though because it's so hard to do. If you're bad enough you can go winless. Going undefeated is tough.

Adjustments that should be made to pricing games to make them fairer: Secret X: Add a 3rd SP so that perfect pricing ensures a win. 1/2 Off: Add a 4th set of SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Master Key: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Rat Race: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win.

The following pricing games should be retired because there's no way or no easy way to make them fair: Spelling Bee, Plinko, Punch a Bunch, Pass the Buck, Let em Roll.

The following retired pricing games should be revived: $uper $aver, Give or Keep, Buy or Sell, Hurdles, Bump, Penny Ante, Credit Card, On the Spot, Split Decision, Add em Up, Walk of Fame, Barker's Markers.

Meanwhile, normalcy has been restored to the AFC West as the Chiefs flat out destroy the Broncos 30-6. This was also Andy Reid's 200th career win.

And in that game last night between Denver and Kansas City, what happened? Oh yeah, reigning MVP quarterback Patrick Mahomes suffered a knee injury and could be out for a few weeks to the rest of this season. Gee, I wonder how this could have been prevented? Maybe if the NFL didn't make Mahomes play on 3 days rest!

Seriously, can Thursday Night Football just DIE already? It's not needed, nobody except diehard football fans would miss it, it doesn't make Thanksgiving games as special as they once were because now they're playing every Thursday of the season (granted it's still somewhat special because it's played on a holiday), and on top of that it's just bad for player safety in this age where the long-term effects of concussions on players health are more known than ever.

Oh but who am I kidding, it's not going away because the NFL just wants to boost their profits any way they can even if it means risking their players health. This is a great example of why greed is in my opinion the deadliest sin of the seven. Paul Tagliabue during his tenure as NFL commissioner may have turned a blind eye to the concussion problem, but at least he knew how much NFL football was enough to schedule per week and that was all games on Sunday except one primetime game on Monday.

And one more nitpick. If the game's gonna be on the local FOX affiliate why does it have to be on NFL Network as well? Why not show some original programming relating to those teams playing like Top Tens, America's Game, A Football Life, just anything but the game FOX is airing.

The only thing missing from the Falcons game against the Rams is a laugh track.

30th ranked Cardinals defense sacks Giants QB Daniel Jones 8 times, yet Gettleman won't do anything to fix the o-line. Pathetic.

Yes! My Cardinals are now on a 3 game winning streak with a 27-21 win over  the  Giants thanks in large part to 3 rushing touchdowns from Chase Edmonds. With the win, the Cardinals are 3-3-1. The waters are about to get murkier with visits to the red hot Saints and undefeated 49ers in the next 2 games. But for now it's really enjoyable to be on a 3 game winning streak after how poorly the season started.

Congratulations to future Hall of Famers Aaron Rodgers and Matthew Stafford on reaching the 350 touchdown and 40000 yard milestones respectively.

The suprising Colts are now 4-2 and the Buffalo Bills at 5-1 are looking like they'll have a great shot at a wild card.

It's tough to say at this nanosecond whether the pack or vikes should be favored in the NFC North.

After a field goal from Brett Maher, the Cowboys lead the Eagles 27-7. Does anyone else have a feeling that Dallas will manage to screw this one up in the second half or is this just me that has this feeling?

Falcons make two moves while we slept. WR Mohamed Sanu is traded to the Patriots for a second round draft pick; LB Vic Beasley is put on the trade block.

Atlanta cuts kicker Matt Bryant, who has missed three FGs and a PAT in the past three games. The new kicker is Younghoe Koo (first name pronounced "yung-hway") who hails from Georgia Southern.

My Cardinals lose to the 49ers. Kyler Murray threw 2 touchdowns as the Cardinals made a bit of a rally in the 4th 1/4. But Ultimately, Garoppolo's 4 touchdown passes, each 1 of them to a different receiver, allowed the 49ers a 28-25 win. The Cardinals are 3-5-1 after 9 games. Meanwhile, the 49ers are 8-0 and the battle for NFC Supremacy this season appears to be between the 49ers and the Packers.
