On Halloween the NFL's Week 8 will unfold, with ample opportunities for teams to turn in ghoulish performances that horrify their fans to their wits' end. The more optimistic fans will look for their squads to provide treats instead of tricks by pulling out convincing victories before the calendar turns to November.
There are 13 games on the Week 8 schedule, and if you pay attention to point spreads set by recreational oddsmakers (since gambling is, of course, illegal), every single home team is favored to win this week. That seems like an unsustainable setup, so the question will be: which road underdogs will emerge victorious?
Here we'll provide up-to-the-minute predictions, analysis and injury updates leading into the day's first games. I'll give you prediction for all 13 games on the schedule, highlight some players that I think will step up big, and make sure you're fully informed on any injuries or roster changes that are announced before the first kickoff of Week 8.
