Walker's AFC North picks

Posted by ESPN.com’s James Walker

We had a banner 3-0 sweep in the AFC North last week. Let’s see if we can keep the momentum going.

Here are the AFC North blog’s picks for Week 7:

Green Bay Packers (3-2) at Cleveland Browns (1-5), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Analysis: The last thing the Browns needed was a dozen players missing practice this week with the flu. Easy road win for the Pack.

Pick: Packers, 24-13

Minnesota Vikings (6-0) at Pittsburgh Steelers (4-2), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Analysis: This is a chance for the Steelers to make a huge statement that they’re still the reigning Super Bowl champions. I don’t think Pittsburgh lets that opportunity go to waste.

Pick: Steelers, 21-17

Chicago Bears (3-2) at Cincinnati Bengals (4-2), Sunday at 4:15 p.m.

Analysis: This is a toss-up. But I would be surprised if the Bengals fall to 1-3 at home this season.

Pick: Bengals, 24-21

Last week's record: 3-0

Overall record: 12-7

Comment: The Baltimore Ravens to tie Sunday, 0-0, is my lock of the week. Book it!
