NFL Week 8 picks

Lions (5-2) @ Falcons (2-5)
The Falcons are a joke this year. The Lions defense has been phenomenal. Easy one here.
PICK: LIONS
Bills (4-3) @ Jets (1-6)
The Bills are without both their running backs and are reaching down on the depth chart. The Jets have continued losing games by one possession. They bring in Percy Harvin. That and the fact Gang Green is home will be the difference in this one.
PICK: JETS
Ravens (5-2) @ Bengals (3-2-1)
This Ravens team is better than some people are giving them credit for. The Bengals have not been good without A.J. Green. It’s hard to see him play significant time Sunday. Without a healthy Green, the Ravens win.
PICK: RAVENS
Seahawks (3-3) @ Panthers (3-3-1)
It’s must-win time for the Seahawks after a bad loss to the Rams last week. They won’t let a banged up, inconsistent Panthers team get the best of them this week. Lockdown time for LOB.
PICK: SEAHAWKS
Bears (3-4) @ Patriots (5-2)
The Patriots are in cruise control right now. They should keep the hot streak going against a Bears team that is wildly inconsistent.
PICK: PATRIOTS
Texans (3-4) @ Titans (2-5)
Zach Mettenberger is making his first career start for the Titans. That’s all you need to know for this one.
PICK: TEXANS
Dolphins (3-3) @ Jaguars (1-6)
Don’t be fooled by one Jaguars win over a Browns team that came back down to earth.
PICK: DOLPHINS
Rams (2-4) @ Chiefs (3-3)
The Rams used special teams to win last week against the Seahawks. The Chiefs won’t let that happen at Arrowhead. They are in a groove right now after a win over the Chargers in San Diego. They should crush St. Louis.
PICK: CHIEFS
Vikings (2-5) @ Bucs (1-5)
It’s the battle of whose worse. This one is tough to predict because they both suck, but I’ll go with the home team here.
PICK: BUCS
Eagles (5-1) @ Cardinals (5-1)
What a game in Arizona. This should be a classic Week 8 matchup. The Eagles are looking up at the Cowboys. The Cardinals are looking down at the Seahawks and 49ers. We didn’t expect to hear either of those. With Carson Palmer healthy and the Cardinals defense playing great, I expect Arizona to get a home win by a field goal.
PICK: CARDINALS
Raiders (0-6) @ Browns (3-3)
The Browns won’t overlook this one like they did last week. They should beat the Raiders handedly at home.
PICK: BROWNS
Colts (5-2) @ Steelers (4-3)
The Colts might be a top three team in the NFL. Andre Luck is amazing. Their offense has been brilliant. Surprisingly, their defense put up a shutout last week. The Steelers squeezed by Houston, but they won’t top Indianapolis.
PICK: COLTS
Packers (5-2) @ Saints (2-4)
What a disaster it has been for the Saints this year. The Packers started off poorly and look like a new team. No chance for New Orleans in this one, despite being home.
PICK: PACKERS
Redskins (2-5) @ Cowboys (6-1)
The Cowboys are just too good right now. Colt McCoy is starting for Washington, so who knows what they get on offense. The Cowboys will improve to 7-1. That’s a scary thought.
PICK: COWBOYS
