Not So Expert Picks: Week Eight Edition
Hey sports fans, T-Bone, Bruce and Chris here with our picks for the NFL slate this weekend. We’re going to keep track of these for bragging rights, so we’ll keep you updated each week with who’s in the lead and who doesn’t know as much as they think they may.
After a week hiatus we are back for the week 8 action. Chris and T-Bone tied last week at 10-3 while Bruce ended up at 8-5. Chris has a very small lead at 61-43, T-Bone is at 60-44, and Bruce is bringing up the rear at 57-47. So let’s get to it here are our week 8 picks.
Thursday Night Game
Buccaneers @ Vikings: All three of us thought the Vikings were on the right track heading into Thursday, however the Bucs proved us all wrong as Tampa may be the bandwagon to jump on.
Panthers @ Bears: It would be tough to pick the Panthers against anybody this week, certainly not against one of the top teams in the NFL. Hurney or no Hurney we are all taking the Bears.
Chargers @ Browns: A little known stat is that Brandon Weeden is leading all rookies in passing yards this season, maybe that’s why Bruce and Bone are taking the Browns. Chris is putting his money on the Chargers.
Seahawks @ Lions: Chris says that nothing about the Lions last Monday make me comfortable picking them against a stout Seattle defense. T-Bone and Bruce say what does Chris know and they are taking the Lions.
Jaguars @ Packers: The one bright spot on the Jaguars is MJD. The one bright spot on the Jaguars is out with an injury. The Packers will end this one before the first quarter we all have Green Bay.
Colts @ Titans: Tennessee despite looking awful earlier in the season has been able to put together two wins in a row behind Hasselback, and Bruce likes the Titans to make it three. T-Bone and Chris are going with Luck and the Colts on the road.
Patriots @ Rams: Technically it says this is a home game for the Rams however last I checked they didn’t move their franchise to London. We all are taking the Patriots to pick up the win shortly after tea and crumpets time.
Dolphins @ Jets: Bruce has picked the Jets every week this year and continues this week. He has been right three times so far and looks to make it four. Chris and T-Bone are not sold and they like the Dolphins.
Falcons @ Eagles: Bruce says the Falcons are still undefeated and they should take care of business in Philly. Chris and Bruce know Andy Reid is money coming off the bye week and like the Eagles here.
Redskins @ Steelers: The Steelers are 2-0 at home so far which makes T-Bone think they will take it here. The Steelers also have not faced RGIII at home either which makes Bruce and Chris like the Redskins here.
Raiders @ Chiefs: In a year that the home teams have been very successful the Chiefs and Raiders have not benefited from it as they are both 0-3. T-Bone and Bruce like this trend to continue as they are taking the Raiders. Chris is taking the Chiefs to end this streak at Arrowhead.
Giants @ Cowboys: The Giants were embarrassed in week one against the Cowboys. This is a different Giants team and we all think they get payback in this one.
Sunday Night Game
Saints @ Broncos: The Saints put up a lot of points last week, they also gave up a lot of points which is what you don’t want to do against Peyton Manning, we all like Denver and the over.
Monday Night Game
49ers @ Cardinals: Admittedly none of us saw the NFC West being this good and nobody thought this would have been a good one looking at the calendar in the preseason but this has the makings. The Cardinals are a little beat up so we are all taking San Fran.
