Texans101.com’s NFL Week Eight Game Picks

Coming off a season best 12-1 weekend, I lost momentum Thursday night when I unsuccessfully picked the Minnesota Vikings to take down the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at home via Twitter. While last week’s games were fairly straightforward and easy to pick, this week’s slate presents a much tougher challenge. Here are the rest of my week eight game picks:

 

Thursday

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Minnesota Vikings – Vikings (L)

 

Sunday

Atlanta Falcons @ Philadelphia Eagles – Eagles

Carolina Panthers @ Chicago Bears – Bears

Indianapolis Colts @ Tennessee Titans – Titans

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Green Bay Packers – Packers

Miami Dolphins @ New York Jets – Dolphins

New England Patriots @ St. Louis Rams – Patriots

San Diego Chargers @ Cleveland Browns – Chargers

Seattle Seahawks @ Detroit Lions – Lions

Washington Redskins @ Pittsburgh Steelers – Steelers

New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys – Giants

Oakland Raiders @ Kansas City Chiefs – Raiders

New Orleans @ Denver Broncos – Broncos

 

Monday

San Francisco 49ers @ Arizona Cardinals – 49ers

 

Analysis

There were a couple games I thought were difficult picks, although to be fair I said that last week en route to one of the easier weeks to pick games in recent history. My “upsets” this week include the Eagles at home against the undefeated Falcons and the Giants on the road over the Cowboys. I don’t consider these games upset picks myself, but I think many would disagree with me. I could have gone either way between the Titans/Colts and Raiders/Chiefs, otherwise I feel confident in the rest of the games this week. With no Texans game this week, I’m most looking forward to the Sunday night matchup between the Saints and Broncos. 

 

Last Week: 12-1

This Season: 64-40
