Betting Takeaways from ESPN's NFL Power Rankings: Is Houston a trap game for the Cardinals?

Week 7 brings us our first significant bye week of the NFL season and is a nice, natural checkpoint about a third of the way through the schedule.

We now have enough data points to comfortably draw some conclusions about which teams are for real, and which teams are not. I think the Power Rankings generally reflect that pretty accurately. The top five teams appear to me to accurately reflect the five best teams in the NFL so far (perhaps not in that order, but that's neither here nor there).

Three of those five teams are in action in Week 7, and they're all laying at least 13.5 points! Truly powerful and great teams will merely scoff at such a large number, then go out there and win by three scores.

Let's see if these teams will answer that bell or if one is due for an ATS letdown.
