The NFL Week 7 slate of action has plenty of noteworthy matchups, but none of them truly hold up as "marquee games."

The best ones of the day come a bit later, especially when the Kansas City Chiefs head to San Francisco to face the 49ers in Santa Clara, with the Chiefs just a 1-point road favorite.

Josh Jacobs OVER 18.5 Rushing Attempts (-115)

We finally have a Raiders matchup where the game script sets up perfectly for them at home as a full touchdown favorite vs. the Texans.

Josh McDaniels has unleashed Josh Jacobs so far this season, ranking third in the NFL in rushing yards, while only holding 91 attempts. That's far less than Miles Sanders, Dalvin Cook and others who currently trail him.

The Texans are amongst the worst teams in the NFL vs. the run, Jacobs is cooking, and the Raiders have had time to make some positive changes after a 1-4 start to the year. They know the easiest path to a victory is through their running game, and with fresh legs and a must-win opportunity, I don't think they'll hesitate to use him.

George Kittle Anytime TD (+175)

George Kittle still has yet to find the end zone this year and that won’t last long especially at the target volume he is starting to see. Last week against Atlanta, Kittle saw 10 targets from Jimmy G and reeled in 8 catches for 83 yards, by far his best game of the season.

Kittle's production has been on a steady climb throughout the four games he’s been on the field. Even if he doesn’t get a red zone target, the KC defense isn’t exactly known for stellar tackling, so he could find a way into the end zone on a long catch and run. - Josh Yourish

Tua Tagovailoa OVER 253.5 Passing Yards (-115)

Tua soared over this total in both games that he remained healthy. He threw for 270 yards in Week 1 against the Patriots, and then threw for an eye-popping 469 yards in Week 2 against the Ravens.

He should be aided by the fact that the Steelers are 25th in opponent yards per pass attempt heading into this game. - Iain MacMillan
