The 2023 NFL season is on to Week 7 with another Thursday Night Football game on the schedule. This week’s edition features the Jacksonville Jaguars and the New Orleans Saints. Jacksonville comes into the night on a three-game winning streak and sitting atop the AFC South. They beat the Indianapolis Colts last week thanks to two fourth-quarter touchdowns.

The Saints fell to 3-3 on the year with a loss last week to the Houston Texans. The loss drops them into second place in the NFC South, a half-game behind the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who have already had their bye week and are 3-2 on the year.

Tonight’s kickoff is at 8:15 p.m. ET. The Saints are two-point favorites, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. The point total for the game is set at just 40 points, with the Jaguars +110 on the moneyline, while the Saints are -130.

Each week, a group of contributors here on The Phinsider make their predictions for each game on the schedule. We run this picks pool from opening night of the season through the Super Bowl, eventually crowing a season-long champion. We primarily focus on the straight-up winners for our season-long pool here on the site, but we can also make spread and over/under picks. You can check those out in the tabs on the widget below from Tallysight.

Before we do get to the picks for tonight’s game, here are our results from last week and the overall standings for the season.
