Sports – NFL Picks, Week 8
Here are my NFL Week 8 picks:
(I was 12-1 last week. O knows)
Bye teams: Bal, Buf, Cin, Hou
TB @ Min – Freeman looked good last week, but the Vikings are undefeated at home & the Bucs are winless on the road. The Purple People Eaters win.
Car @ Chi – I will repeat myself; NFC North team undefeated at home, NFL South team winless on the road. Cutler is still a tool, but the Bears are clicking.
SD @ Cle – After the week off the Chargers should have fixed a few of the problems that led to their embarrassment in MNF. The Browns are improved, but not enough.
Sea @ Det – Neither team can score, so the Seahawks D should have the advantage. But they’re no good on the road and my gut tells me the Lions will be ready for this one.
Jax @ GB – Oh my. This looks to be the most lopsided game of 2012, especially considering the Jags injuries from last week. A Pack loss would be equivalent to a 16 seed beating a 1 seed.
Mia @ NYJ – The Dolphins D is no joke, and the Jets are. A loss this week followed by a bye week will lead to a Tebow start in Week 10.
Atl @ Phi – The Falcons will lose soon, but it won’t be this week, coming off a bye and facing an Eagles team that can’t score enough points to keep up.
Was @ Pit – The net points of these two teams combined is +9. In other words, this will be a close game. The Stillers have the slight advantage and should could out on top.
NE @ STL – All bets are off when teams play overseas, so this London match-up is hard to call. The Rams D is good, but Bradford can’t match points with Brady.
Ind @ Ten – Might at well pick the Titans at home, as neither team can score or stop other teams from scoring, and Chris Johnson is ready to break loose.
Oak @ KC – The basement of the AFC West, the Raiders are winless on the road and the Chiefs are winless at home. So…Raiders I guess, since McFadden in on my fantasy team.
NYG @ Dal – A great rivalry and a great match-up. The Boys barely beat an awful Panthers team last week, and the Giants seem to enjoy playing on the road. Big Blue beats Big D.
NO @ Den – Should be the highest scoring game of the weekend & a very entertaining SNF. Both offenses can fly, but the Broncos D is better than the Saints’, so they win a tight one.
SF @ Ari – The Cardinals have lost the magic they had at the beginning of the season, and the Niners are a strong team that don’t make a lot of mistakes. MNF means Jon Gruden!
