We still haven't had a bad week this season, though it would've been nice if our week eight predictions were better than .500. We went 7-7 despite picking the Miami Dolphins to win outright as underdogs against the Chicago Bears, and for the San Diego Chargers to lose against the Kansas City Chiefs despite being favored by four. There are some more upsets coming in week eight, so let's get to the predictions!
NFL Record Year-to-Date: 58-42-1
Detroit Lions -3.5 at Atlanta Falcons
Atlanta has no defense, and they can't run the ball. Now, because of massive offensive line injuries, they can't pass protect. Going against Detroit's impressive defensive line, I'd be surprised if the Falcons manage to lose by less than three touchdowns.
Minnesota Vikings at Tampa Bay Buccaneers -2.5
I usually take the home team in a battle of bad teams, but the Vikings are the play here. They have the more talented quarterback.
Chicago Bears at New England Patriots -6
These teams both have some big defensive injuries to deal with, though Chicago is the worst of the two. That being said, the Bears need the win and I don't think the Patriots can stop Brandon Marshall. Take Chicago.
St. Louis Rams at Kansas City Chiefs -7.5
The Rams have gotten by with smoke and mirrors lately, but 7.5 is too many points. St. Louis is solid on both sides of the ball and should keep this game close.
Seattle Seahawks -5 at Carolina Panthers
Even going back to last season, it wasn't smart to trust the Seahawks to score points on the road against decent defenses. I don't think that has changed. Take the Panthers lose only by three.
Buffalo Bills at New York Jets -3
The Bills pulled off a miracle win last week, but they lost both starting running backs in the process. New York is healthier and needs the win more. Jets by eight.
Miami Dolphins -6 at Jacksonville Jaguars
Last week, the Jaguars actually looked decent for once. Don't be fooled, though. They're still horrible and should lose huge against the Dolphins, who might be a top six team by the end of the year.
Houston Texans -3 at Tennessee Titans
Titans are starting Zach Mettenberger at quarterback, which is another term for giving up on their season. Take Houston.
Baltimore Ravens -1 at Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati really needs A.J. Green back, but they're still much better than Baltimore AND at home. Take the Bengals to win by 20 with or without Green.
Philadelphia Eagles at Arizona Cardinals -3
The Cardinals are tough to beat in the desert, but they're playing way beyond their skill level lately. Look for Philadelphia to knock them down a notch with an outright win.
Indianapolis Colts -3 at Pittsburgh Steelers
I've lost money betting against the Colts lately, so I'm sure they'll lose by 50 this week since I'm taking them. Indianapolis can score on Pittsburgh's defense much easier than the Steelers can do against the Colts. Indy by six.
Oakland Raiders at Cleveland Browns -7
The Raiders have no chance to stop the Browns, even though Cleveland's offense looked terrible last Sunday. That being said, the Browns have some big injuries on defense. Ultimately, Oakland isn't good enough to keep pace on the scoreboard. Cleveland by 13.
Green Bay Packers at New Orleans Saints -1.5
Jimmy Graham being hurt isn't helping anything, but I don't particular trust either defense. I'm going with the Saints by four in a shootout.
Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys -10
There's no way Washington can stop the Dallas offense. Take the Cowboys to win in a blowout.
