Chris Nelson's Week 8 NFL Game Predictions

Went .500 on picks two weeks in a row. What the hell is going on? I know I'm smarter than this!

Last week's record: 7-7
Season record: 58-44 (56.9%)

Buccaneers over Cowboys - The injuries are clearly adding up as Dallas was beyond bad last week. They could rebound, but I can't justify picking them after that performance.

Redskins over Lions - I can't see the Lions winning a game with Dan Orlovsky under center.

Bills over Dolphins - I'm actually 0-for-6 picking Dolphins games this year. Here's hoping I go 0-for-7.

Patriots over Rams - I'm not sold on the Rams yet, and the Patriots are picking up steam. Undrafted rookie running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis is a sleeper for a big game this week.

Chargers over Saints - Both of these teams are loaded with talent, and both have had their down moments this season. This is a toss-up to me.

Jets over Chiefs - Kansas City's roster seems to get less talented by the week. They're awful right now.

Eagles over Falcons - Definitely has the potential for an upset, but I like the Eagles here.

Panthers over Cardinals - Carolina is another team that I can't figure out. They play well when I don't pick them and poorly when I do.

Ravens over Raiders - Flacco doesn't always make it look pretty, but the team's defense is strong.

Jaguars over Browns - This came will be interesting if the Browns play like the Giants in Week 6, but the Jaguars have to be the pick here.

Texans over Bengals - No Carson Palmer = no more picking the Bengals in 2008.

Steelers over Giants - A very, very good matchup between two great teams. Tie goes to the home team here.

49ers over Seahawks - San Francisco hasn't been impressive, but the Seahawks are too big of a mess right now to pick.

Colts over Titans - The Colts winning isn't usually an upset in this matchup, but Tennessee is playing some great ball. Still, I think it's time the Titans joined the ranks of the defeated.
