NFL WEEK 8 PREDICTIONS

Thursday, October 29th, 2020
Betting Line: panthers -3, O/U 49.5

Atlanta just can’t seem to catch a break. A week after picking up their first win of the season, the Falcons lost to Detroit on a last play touchdown and extra point in Week 7. Now, they face Carolina a team they have beaten in eight of the last 10 meetings. The Panthers dropped a close one to New Orleans last week. Carolina may have RB Christian McCaffrey back for this one and they’re at home… CAROLINA 33, ATLANTA 28

The Detroit Lions have now won two in a row, but don’t get too excited. The wins were over Jacksonville and Atlanta, a pair of 1-6 football teams. The Lions welcome Indianapolis to Ford Field on Sunday. The Colts have one of the league’s best defenses. The Colts are fourth in scoring defense, third against the run, and second in total defense allowing opponents 288 yards per game. The Lions train gets derailed this week… INDIANAPOLIS 28, DETROIT 20

The Vikings never would have thought they would be 1-5 at this point in the season. Green Bay (5-1) needs a win to keep pace with Chicago. Minnesota comes in off of a bye. The Packers beat Houston last week. Green Bay has won the last three straight, including the first meeting this year in Minnesota. Green Bay hasn’t lost at home yet this season… GREEN BAY 34, MINNESOTA 31

The Jets and Chiefs are polar opposites. The Jets are simply awful. Kansas City has a very good chance of repeating as Super Bowl champion. This game is being played at Arrowhead Stadium where the Chiefs are tough to beat. Sure, the crowd won’t be the normal packed house, but the Chiefs perform well at home. In seven games this season, the Jets have scored just 85 points… KANSAS CITY 38, NY JETS 17


[email protected]
The Dolphins announced QB Tua Tagovailoa as their new starter. Coming off a bye last week, Miami is 3-3 and poised to make a second-half run to the postseason. The Rams, who played on Monday night, have one of the best defenses in the league. DT Aaron Donald is second in the NFL in sacks (7.5) and will likely make life tough for Tagovailoa. It’s a long trip and a short week for the Rams, but they prevail… L.A. Rams 29, MIAMI 20

It’s the first of two Ravens-Steelers matchups this season. Baltimore won both games against Pittsburgh last year. Prior to that, the Steelers had won two in a row in Baltimore. The Steelers defense is outstanding leading the NFL in several statistical categories. Baltimore’s only loss is to Kansas City, they lead the league in rushing and their defense isn’t so bad either. The Ravens lead the NFL in scoring defense allowing 17.3 points a game. This should be a good one… PITTSBURGH 20, BALTIMORE 19

Both the Chargers and Broncos are 2-4. Los Angeles is coming off a win over Jacksonville while the Broncos got waxed by the Chiefs last week. Denver won both games against the Chargers last year. Both games were close, decided by a touchdown or less. This game will come down to which young quarterback plays better. That would be Justin Herbert… L.A. CHARGERS 28, DENVER 24

 

[email protected]
The Saints have won three in a row and need a win to keep pace with NFC South leader Tampa Bay. New Orleans has figured out how to win without WR Michael Thomas who has been injured. Thomas may return against the Bears. Chicago needs a victory to keep pace with the Packers in the NFC North. The Bears are 2-1 at home this season and have the better defense… CHICAGO 24, NEW ORLEANS 23

 

[email protected]
Seattle has owned this rivalry winning 11 of the last 13, but those two losses have come in the past three games. Two of the past three games in the series went to overtime and the 49ers won last year in Seattle 26-21. With the Seahawks coming off a loss and playing at home, the injury-depleted 49ers lose for the first time in three weeks… SEATTLE 33, SAN FRANCISCO 30

 

[email protected]
With the injury to Andy Dalton, the Cowboys will now start seventh-round draft pick Ben DiNucci at quarterback. Dallas will travel to Philadelphia to face the NFC East first-place Eagles who are 2-4-1. The Cowboys had won four straight in the series until the Eagles won last December at home. Philly wins at home again against the Cowboys’ third-string quarterback… PHILADELPHIA 27, DALLAS 17

If it weren’t for the Jets, the Giants would probably earn the title “worst team in the NFL.” New York did almost pull off another victory last Thursday before losing to Philadelphia 22-21. The Bucs were busy putting up 45 points on the Raiders last week. The extra rest won’t help the Giants. Tampa Bay averages 31.7 points per game and has one of the best run defenses in the league… TAMPA BAY 38, NY GIANTS 17

Last Year Predictions:

The real battle in the NFL in 2019 is which team is worse? Miami or Washington? The Redskins do have a win albeit over Miami and now face 5-2 Minnesota on the road on Thursday night. Washington can’t score. They average 12.9 points per game and were shutout last week. They aren’t very good on defense. They give up almost 26 points a game. Minnesota has one of the best rushing attacks in the NFL and QB Kirk Cousins is just starting to heat up. This one is a no-brainer… Minnesota 34, Washington 14

 

[email protected]
The Falcons beat the Seahawks the last two times the teams played, but that was before their defense took a nose dive. The Falcons are just 1-6 and the Seahawks are coming off a tough loss to Baltimore at home. The Falcons offense can put up some points, but Atlanta can’t stop anyone. The Falcons have given up a league-worst 223 points. Look for Russell Wilson and company to exact revenge this week… Seattle 32, Atlanta 28

 

[email protected]
Who would have thought the Bills would be 5-1 and the Eagles just 3-4 at this point in the 2019 season? Not many, but that is the case. The Bills are a top-5 defense. They are third in the league in points allowed (15.2) and third in total defense (292.7). The Eagles are struggling and have suffered a number of injuries. Both starting cornerbacks have missed games and now DT Fletcher Cox is questionable. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson hasn’t played in weeks. The Bills have home-field advantage… Buffalo 23, Philadelphia 17

 

[email protected]
Neither the Bears nor the Chargers expected their 2019 seasons to start like this. With a loss to New Orleans on Sunday, Chicago is 3-3 and in serious danger. The Chargers were once again in their game with Tennessee but failed to deliver a win losing 23-20. The Bears defense got thrashed by New Orleans, but they are still a top-10 unit. The Chargers are having a tough time running the football, which is creating problems for the offense. At Soldier Field, the edge goes to the Bears… Chicago 20, LA Chargers 17

 

[email protected]
The Giants have dropped three straight including last week’s 27-21 loss to Arizona. Detroit was right in the thick of the NFC North race until back-to-back losses to Green Bay and Minnesota. The last time the Lions played the Giants at Ford Field, Detroit won big, 35-14, back in 2014. Lions QB Matthew Stafford and the offense can put up the points. The Giants may have RB Saquon Barkley back, which will put some pressure on the Lions defense. Still, the Lions are at home and need a win to get back on track… Detroit 33, NY Giants 20

 

[email protected]
Tampa Bay (2-4) had an extra week to prepare for Tennessee, which is coming off a win over the Chargers. The week off for the Bucs allowed QB Jameis Winston to not throw an interception. Winston threw five picks in the Bucs last game against Carolina. Tennessee’s defense is their strong suit. Despite being 3-4, the Titans only give up 16 points a game. And, they’re at home this week… Tennessee 20, Tampa Bay 17

 

[email protected]
The Broncos are now just 2-5 after a loss to Kansas City last Thursday night. They head to Indianapolis (4-2). which has a hold of the AFC South lead. The Colts have won two straight over the Chiefs and the Texans last week. Quarterback Jacoby Brissett is making plays and the running game with Marlon Mack is strong. Denver can’t quite seem to generate much offense. They are 29th in the league in scoring at just 16 points per game… Indianapolis 33, Denver 17

 

[email protected]
The Rams got back on track with a 37-10 win over Atlanta last week. Cincinnati runs into a brick wall week after week. Head coach Zac Taylor has yet to win an NFL game. The Bengals are 0-7, but they have been competitive in most games. The Rams are still struggling to run the football and the defense is giving up too many points. Still, the Rams roster is just better than Cincinnati’s, and they play at home… LA Rams 27, Cincinnati 20

 

[email protected]
Don’t look now, but the Arizona Cardinals have won three straight. Okay, so the combined record of the teams they beat is 3-18, but still the Cardinals have learned to win. No. 1 draft pick Kyler Murray is developing, but the Cardinals defense still has a long way to go. The Saints have now won five in a row with Teddy Bridgewater subbing for the injured Drew Brees at quarterback. New Orleans’ defense has stepped up as well. Look for one more Bridgewater win before Brees returns… New Orleans 34, Arizona 17

 

[email protected]
The Jets did get QB Sam Darnold back and he did lead the Jets to their first win, an upset of Dallas. It’s Minshew-mania in Jacksonville where backup Gardner Minshew just led the Jags to their third win of the season last week, a 27-17 defeat of Cincinnati. The running game is strong with Leonard Fournette (715 yards) and Minshew doesn’t make many mistakes. The Jets haven’t won a road game yet. Don’t see it happening this week… Jacksonville 27, NY Jets 23

 

[email protected]
Week 8’s Sunday night game lost some of its appeal with the injury to Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes. Matt Moore stepped in last week after Mahomes suffered a dislocated kneecap and calmly went 10-of-19 for 117 yards and a touchdown. He will be challenged this week by a pretty good Green Bay defense. Also, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is coming off a six-touchdown performance. The game is at Arrowhead Stadium which should help Moore, but it won’t be enough… Green Bay 30, Kansas City 27

 

[email protected]
This could be the ugliest Monday night game of the season. The Dolphins are awful. They can’t score and they can’t stop anyone from scoring. In six games this season, Miami has scored just 63 points. The Steelers aren’t much better, but they will have QB Mason Rudolph back after a concussion injury. The Steelers did beat the Bengals, also awful, on Monday night earlier this season. Plus, the game is in Pittsburgh… Pittsburgh 24, Miami 7
