With the midpoint of the season here many teams are starting to match up for the final push to the post season. Others are struggling to find their identities, while a few are just looking forward to the next draft. Here are my predictions for week 8.
Seattle @ Dallas Seattle is a team struggling to find an identity and Dallas at home will be way too much for them. Dallas by 14.
Denver @ Baltimore This is the defining game of the season for the struggling Ravens. A loss here puts them in a hole they won't likely emerge from. Ravens by 3.
Miami @ N.Y. Jets Miami just came off a heartbreaking loss at home to the Saints while the Jets stomped the Raiders in Oakland. Momentum carries Jets to win by 7 at home.
S.F. @ Indy Alex Smith will not be able to match Peyton score for score. Colts win at home by 10.
Cleveland @ Chicago The Browns are the worst team in the league and Chicago will be at home. Bears by 14.
St. Louis @ Detroit I want to say the Lions at home but I don't feel it. Rams by 3.
Giants @ Eagles I think the Giants bounce back from their home loss at the hands of the Cards. With Westbrook hurt the Eagles have it tough at home. Giants by 7.
Houston @ Buffalo Houston is playing great while the Bills flounder. Texans by 14.
Jacksonville @ Tennessee Jacksonville will be too much for a hapless Titans team starting backup Vince Young. Jaguars by 14.
Oakland @ San Diego This is my upset of the week. Russell has his best game of the year. Seymour and Ellis will lead a strong defensive effort and the Raiders squeak out a win. Raiders by 1.
Minnesota @ Green Bay Must see game of the week! Favre gives everything he's got but the cold weather hurts his old bones. Packers win a tight one by 3 at home.
Carolina @ Arizona The panthers just can't seem to get it together while the Cards are clicking on all cylinders. Arizona by 7.
Finally the Monday night shootout between the Falcons and the Saints at the Super dome. The Falcons are hot but the Saints are highly inhospitable at home and unbeaten on the year. Until they lose a game, I have to go with dem Saints by 7.
These are my fearless picks this week. What do you think?
