NFL Week 8 Preview and PIcks

Browns vs Rams
The pitiful Rams are 0-6 and TE Randy McMichael has promised a victory for his team. Although the Browns have a good offense, their defense is not really good and gives up too many big plays. Steven Jackson will be back for the Rams.
Rams 31 Browns 30

Lions vs Bears
The Lions are just like the Browns as they have a good offense but a sorry defense. The Bears saved their season last week by beating the Eagles on the road. QB Brian Griese has filled in very nicely for Rex Grossman.
Bears 27 Lions 20

Colts vs Panthers
WR Marvin Harrison is out with an injury for the Colts. The Colts are playing another road game after their easy victory Monday night in Jacksonville. This is never easy for any team. They might be looking forward to their game next week against Tom Brady and friends as well. Carolina will start Vinny Testaverde behind center.
Colts 24 Panthers 10

Giants vs Dolphins
This game will be held in London. They can play this game in China or Africa also but the result will still be the same. Giants in a blowout.
Giants 38 Dolphins 20

Raiders vs Titans
The Raiders play the hobbled Vince Young this Sunday in Tennessee. The Titans will stop the rushing offense of the Raiders and make Daunte Culpepper beat them. He won't.
Titans 23 Raiders 13

Eagles vs Vikings
The Vikings will be starting QB Kelly Holcomb. Look for RB Adrian Petersen to get more carries this week than last week against Dallas. The Eagles need this win after losing to Chicago last week.
Eagles 20 Vikings 13

Steelers vs Bengals
The Steelers are trying to rebound after a loss last Sunday night to Denver. The Bengals are coming off a big win against the Jets. Steelers will run Willie Parker more than 25 times for the win today.
Steelers 31 Bengals 24

Bills vs Jets
Jets lost on the road to the Bills a few weeks ago when Trent Edwards was making his first start in the NFL. Jets will repay the Bills with a win today.
Jets 24 Bills 10

Texans vs Chargers
Texans are getting better but they still do not have the weapons to beat a good San Diego squad.
Chargers 27 Texans 17

Jaguars vs Bucs
This matchup of two teams in Florida will be a defensive battle. QB Quinn Gray steps in for the injured David Garrard for the Jags. He better show more than he did last week against the Colts. The Bucs have a good defense and this game might not have a touchdown.
Bucs 9 Jags 3

Saints vs 49ers
This is the biggest game of the year for both teams if they want to be considered playoff contenders. The Saints are trying to rebound from a 0-4 start to their season while the 49ers have lost their last four games. Alex Smith and Frank Gore should have good games as the Saints defense is not that good. They give up big plays and big passes. The Saints will lose as Reggie Bush will be contained and Drew Brees will throw at least one costly interception. Look for Vernon Davis and Gore to have breakout games.
49ers 27 Saints 23

Patriots vs Redskins
The Redskins do not have the offense to keep up with Tom Brady and Randy Moss. If they have to play catch-up, they will be in trouble. No Redskins WR has even got a TD this year. For the Redskins to win, they must play ball control and keep the ball away from Brady. That will mean a lot of long drives and big plays to TE Chris Cooley and RB Clinton Portis. Patriots will win as their WRs will gain separation from the Redskins secondary and make big plays.
Patriots 31 Redskins 17

Packers vs Broncos
Is this the last Monday night game ever for Brett Favre? It seems like we say that every single season. Packers won't win as the Broncos gained a lot of momentum from last week's win vs Pittsburgh. Jay Cutler must be careful with the ball and avoid Charles Woodson and Al Harris.
Broncos 20 Packers 17
