    NFL picks: week 8

    Another week, another ho-hum 6 TD passes and blowout victory for Brady. The Colts also kept pace by beating the Jaguars on Monday night. The Jags might have something more worrisome since Garrard will be out for a few weeks with an ankle injury. Speaking of QBs, the Jets are sticking with Pennington for another week. If polls were still done, I definitely would ask what would happen first: a loss by either the Pats or Colts, the Jets switching QBs, or the Rams or Fins winning a game.

    Last week, both Gibbzilla and Cookies split the weekly crown by each missing the tiebreaker by two. Overall, temple ties Bortaz for the top spot, while Moosashi and Yaboosh are in second with a three-way tie for third. Percentagewise, Amra claims first. Last week, Ash was out of one for sticking with the Saints.

    Last week's results:

    Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals
    Oakland Raiders at Tennessee Titans
    Cleveland Browns at St. Louis Rams
    NY Giants at Miami Dolphins
    Philadelphia Eagles at Minnesota Vikings
    Indianapolis Colts at Carolina Panthers

    Total points for the Pack/Broncos game: 45

    Should be a fun week, with the Jags/Bucs and Pack/Broncos games helping to lead the group. Game of the week goes to the Skins/Pats though. This might be a surprisingly tough test for the Pats.

    Good luck everyone!

    Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears ---> CHI. Don't do it to me again, Bears.
    Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals ---> PIT. The Bengals just aren't very good. The Steelers, on the other hand, are.
    Oakland Raiders at Tennessee Titans ---> TEN. Even without the subject of my man-crush.
    Cleveland Browns at St. Louis Rams ---> CLE. The Browns are going to smoke them. Last time you heard that phrase?
    NY Giants at Miami Dolphins ---> NYG. They're not MIA.
    Philadelphia Eagles at Minnesota Vikings ---> MIN. The Eagles offense looks BAD. Adrian Peterson looks GOOD.
    Indianapolis Colts at Carolina Panthers ---> IND. Sorry Vinnie.
    Buffalo Bills at NY Jets ---> BUF. Eric, you're a good coach. Jauron is not, I should know, I'm a Bears fan. Bench Chad.
    Houston Texans at San Diego Chargers ---> SD. I'm going against LT this week in fantasy. Chalk up another loss.
    Jacksonville Jaguars at Tampa Bay Buccaneers ---> TB. Wait, did I just pick someone that lost to the Lions last week?
    New Orleans Saints at San Francisco 49ers ---> NO. Turning it back around like...things...that...turn...around...
    Washington Redskins at New England Patriots ---> NE. Though I wish bad things upon the Patriots.
    Green Bay Packers at Denver Broncos ---> DEN. Champ takes away the passing game, and Cutler looks good.

    Points: 37.

    You obviously haven't seen Tarvaris Jackson play in the last couple weeks.

    It's the Monday night game. Unless there isn't one, in which case I'll take the Sunday night game.

    How can you gain some ground by choosing who everyone else chooses? Perhaps he is making his move by being the upset picker. Oh crap, I picked the Jets too. Oh well.
