NFL Week 8 Predictions
Last Week's Record: 10-3
Colts vs. Titans: 27-23 Titans
After last week's embarrassing performance, the Colts looked like an amateur football team. Even if they play a little better in this game, the Titans should be able to handle this one. Look for Chris Johnson to break out and have a big game against the Colts.
Saints vs. Rams: 38-10
We now know that even when the Saints play bad teams, they never stop putting points on the scoreboard. With Sam Bradford out again for the Rams, this one should get out of hand pretty early.
Dolphins vs. Giants: 31-17 Giants
The Giants are currently in first place in the NFC East, and will maintain that position when they beat the winless Dolphins. The Dolphins lost their starting quarterback and running back, which means they will be worse than they usually are. Look for the Giants to win big at home.
Vikings vs. Panthers: 30-28 Panthers
The Panthers will win two games in a row for the first time in over a year. Cam Newton has really turned their offense around and has revived veteran wide receiver Steve Smith. Adrian Peterson and the Vikings will give them a good run, but in the end the Panthers will come out on top.
Cardinals vs. Ravens: 24-14 Ravens
The Ravens lost a ton of credibility last week when they lost to the Jaguars. Although they are still one of the top teams in the AFC, the Ravens need to win back some respect with a win against the Cardinals.
Jaguars vs. Texans: 35-13 Texans
Last week Arian Foster had a breakout game vs. the Titans. With Andre Johnson out again this week, look for a similar result in this game. Although the Jaguars are coming off an impressive win on Monday night vs. the Ravens, their offense still hasn't proved themselves yet.
Redskins vs. Bills: 30-21 Bills
The Bills have surprised many so far this season, and will keep up their good play with a win against the Redskins. The Redskins started off the season looking great, but three losses and a quarterback swap later, they find themselves third in the NFC East.
Lions vs. Broncos: 31-20 Lions
Tim Tebow might have saved the Broncos last week, but then again it was against the Dolphins. If the Broncos want to have any chance to win this game, they need Tebow to play well in all four quarters, not just the last. Also, look for the Lions to bounce back after two straight losses at home.
Patriots vs. Steelers: 28-27 Patriots
Despite Pittsburgh's home field advantage, the Patriots will win this game. Roethlisberger and the Steelers offense has been impressive the past few games, but Tom Brady and New England have one of the best offenses in the league.
Browns vs. Niners: 27-20 Niners
The 49'ers will continue their four game win streak with a win over the Browns. Peyton Hillis is unlikely to play again for the Browns, and even if he does end up playing, it still won't help the Browns. The Niners have one of the best defenses in the league, and Alex Smith and the offense has surprised everyone this season.
Bengals vs. Seahawks: 24-13 Bengals
The Bengals young offense has been surprisingly successful this season, while the Seahawks weak defense has been unsurprisingly weak. Andy Dalton is proving why Carson Palmer needed to leave Cincinnati while AJ Green is proving why Ochocinco's time was done.
Cowboys vs. Eagles: 35-30 Eagles
Michael Vick knows when his team needs a big win. Last year on Monday Night, Vick exploded against the Redskins, having the game of his season. With another loss possibly ruining the Eagles' playoff hopes, look for Vick and the Eagles to bounce back and win this game.
Chargers vs. Chiefs: 30-24 Chargers
The Chiefs shocked the Raiders last week with a shutout win, but won't get the same result this week. The Chargers' offense is more explosive than the Raiders' offense, and they should be able to put more points on the scoreboard. Philip Rivers gained back one of his favorite targets in Antonio Gates, and will likely hit him up again on Monday Night
