Predicting The Entire NFL Season: Week 8 (Eagles at Cardinals)

 

The Philadelphia Eagles are coming off their bye week. Hopefully, they used it as an opportunity to rest, mend injuries and address problems that have come up during the season in preparation for the stretch run.

And you? Well, hopefully you caught up with work around the house.

The rest of the NFL pushed on, giving us this look after seven weeks:

St. Louis Rams33
San Francisco 49ers34

A few observations:

- The AFC North is shaping up to be an interesting race, with Baltimore, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh in the hunt (sorry, Cleveland).

- The NFC South is an absolute mess. Only one team (New Orleans) is even at .500.

- The Minnesota Vikings are the worst team in football. On with Week 8.

Chargers @ Broncos: The hits just keep on coming for Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning and the Broncos. Now, they have to play a divisional game on a short week. Seriously, whoever put this schedule together hates Peyton Manning. Denver 34, San Diego 20

Lions @ Falcons: The Atlanta Falcons are going to make things interesting this season. They’re healthier. They’re better. Atlanta 30, Detroit 27

Vikings @ Buccaneers: It has to happen eventually, right? Finally, Minnesota breaks through. Minnesota 20, Tampa Bay 18

Bills @ Jets: Buffalo is going to make a serious run and they’ll be serious players in the postseason, but they’re not above a divisional loss to a lesser team. New York Jets 24, Buffalo 23

Bears @ Patriots: New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady isn’t losing at home to a mediocre Chicago Bears team. New England 26, Chicago 13

Seahawks @ Panthers: Seattle is good, but they’re not “undefeated” good (at least I hope they’re not). This cross-country trip will trip them up. Carolina 28, Seattle 17

Dolphins @ Jaguars: Could it be? Two in a row for Jacksonville? No. Miami 33, Jacksonville 23

Rams @ Chiefs: Big win on the road for St. Louis to get them started on a run. St. Louis 23, Kansas City 18

Texans @ Titans: Another win for the Texans. Houston 34, Tennessee 20

Ravens @ Bengals: This game could be flexed to Sunday Night. Big time AFC North battle. The Bengals are going to win this division and this is their first big step toward that accomplishment. Cincinnati 29, Baltimore 23

Colts @ Steelers: Coming off a loss and playing a lesser team on the road. Indianapolis will either begin a slide here, or right the ship. I’d bet on the latter. Indianapolis 27, Pittsburgh 17

Raiders @ Browns: OK, enough bashing on Cleveland. At least for one week. Cleveland 27, Oakland 24

Packers @ Saints: This will be a good game that Green Bay should win, but they won’t be cause New Orleans’ season might depend on a victory. New Orleans 35, Green Bay 32 (OT)

Redskins @ Cowboys: Dallas can’t lose every week. Dallas 17, Washington 7

Eagles @ Cardinals: Coming off a bye week and taking a cross-country trip. This is a break for the Eagles. Two weeks to prepare for a tough game against a playoff-caliber team? I like Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly’s chances. Philadelphia 39, Arizona 28
