Lions (-3) vs. Seahawks
Detroit's offense was stifled by an elite Bears defense on Monday Night Football. Unfortunately for the Lions, Week 8 will be more of the same as they face a terrific Seahawks defense.
Coming off a Thursday-night game, the well-rested Seahawks will face an exhausted Lions team coming off a short week.
Seahawks get it done on the road.
Take the Seahawks and the points
Jets (-2.5) vs. Dolphins
If not for a couple of missed opportunities, the Jets could have left Gillette Stadium atop the AFC East last weekend.
Despite missing key players on defense, including shutdown corner Darrelle Revis, the Jets still kept New England's offense—the league's best offense—in check.
Rex Ryan has to feel pretty good about his team right now.
The Dolphins are surprisingly competitive this year and Ryan Tannehill looks more and more like a great pick at No. 8 overall, but the Jets still take this one at home.
Take the Jets against the spread
Bears (-7.5) vs. Panthers
We know the Bears are good on defense, but if the Bears can continue to keep Jay Cutler upright, these guys might be legitimate contenders. The Cutler-to-Marshall connection looks more lethal every week.
The Panthers are going nowhere fast sitting at the bottom of the NFC South at 1-5.
Make it five losses in a row for the Panthers.
