NFL picks and predictions Week 8: Staff unanimous with Cardinal, Falcons; split on Broncos/Packers

See what our staff thinks will happen this week.

It is time to have our writing staff make their Week 8 picks. Those who got a pick in for Thursday's game all got a win. It was unanimous in favor of the Pats, which is pretty much easy money, as Tom Brady is 9-0 on Thursday Night Football. As for last week's picks, Michael Ferguson and I were the best of the week, picking 11 of 14 games correctly. That put me in the lead  by two wins.

Here is where we stand after seven weeks of football:

We all unanimously are picking the Cards, Falcons and Rams. The vast majority think the Bengals will beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh with Ben Roethlisberger playing. Only one dares pick the Cowboys over the Seahawks, while only one thinks the Colts can knock the Panthers from the unbeaten.

Whose picks are your favorite?
