Week 8 NFL Picks and Predictions

A look at every game on week 8 of the NFL Sunday schedule with picks and predictions

NFL: International Series-Great Britain Views Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It was another interesting week in the NFL, but that doesn’t mean anything if you are putting money on the games.

Meanwhile, this weekend has a lot of games that were supposed to be good, but now, we have no idea.

Let’s get into it, we are 1-0 so far on the week, but that was easy to call the Jags sucking on Thursday Night Football.

Washington Redskins at Cincinnati Bengals (-3)

This game is in London, at Wembley Stadium, so who knows what is going to happen with these teams both playing in a road game.

The Skins are hot and cold, the Bengals are hot and cold, but I think this ends up being a bit of a shootout.

Bengals 31
Skins 27

New York Jets (-3) at Cleveland Browns

The Browns are starting Josh McCown, even with the bi-polar Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback, this should be a slam dunk for the Jets.

Jets 28
Browns 14

Seattle Seahawks at New Orleans Saints (+3)

I am not sure the Seahawks lose this game, but I think the Saints offense, coupled with a worn down Seahawks defense coming off a late Sunday Night game is a recipe for a closer game.

Seahawks 30
Saints 28

Kansas City Chiefs at Indianapolis Colts (+3)

This is a game where the Chiefs are clearly the superior team and riding a hot streak, but the Colts are finding their rhythm offensively, and I think that continues in this game in a small upset.

Colts 27
Chiefs 24

Detroit Lions (+2) at Houston Texans

The Lions offense looks great and the Texans offense does not. While that is not a recipe for a Lions upset, I think this is a game where you will see the Lions continue to be steady with some explosiveness, while the Texans are still trying to figure out the Brock era.

Lions 24
Texans 17

New England Patriots (-6.5) at Buffalo Bills

The Patriots getting basically a touchdown seems excessive, except for the fact that they are the best team in the NFL and the Bills are missing their best offensive weapon in LeSean McCoy.

Pats 38
Bills 24

Oakland Raiders (-1) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

This is a game where the Raiders are the better team and there really is not a question about it, yet they are only a slight favorite.

Derek Carr and company will put up points, it is up to the Raiders defense to make life tough for Jameis Winston.

Raiders 35
Bucs 21

Rapid Fire:

Cardinals (+3) 31
Panthers 17

Broncos (-4.5) 28
Chargers 21

Green Bay (+3) 28
Falcons 27

Cowboys (-4) 31
Eagles 24
