|NFL Week 8 Picks|
|Last Week: 11-3 Season: 65-38|
|The Colts have too many offensive weapons for the improving
Panthers. Could well be closer then most people expect, but a win is a
should avenge their earlier loss to the Lions, but don't underestimate
Lions QB Jon Kitna. Bears are vastly improved with Griese at the helm.
|Banged-up Bengals are
missing key players on both sides of the ball. Steelers should grind it out offensively and apply steady pressure on Palmer.
|The Giants have won five

opponent, the Miami Dolphins. Enough said.
|Eagles may be without
three starters, but if they can somehow contain RB Adrian

|A loss to the Browns at home leading into the bye week might mark the end of the Scott Linehan
era in St Louis.

most expect, but in the end, I just don't see the Skins being able to
match New England's offensive firepower.
|Maybe it's because we could never
beat these guys when I worked for the Saints, but I'm not sold on the
Black & Gold, Home field will be the
|The Broncos have a difficult time
stopping the rush, but catch a break against a Green Bay team that
has yet to establish a running game.
