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:

AFC EASTWinsLosses

New England Patriots52
Miami Dolphins15
New York Jets16
Baltimore Ravens61
Cincinnati Bengals51
Pittsburgh Steelers43

Carolina Panthers34
Atlanta Falcons34
Tampa Bay Buccaneers24
NFC WESTWinsLosses
Seattle Seahawks60
Arizona Cardinals51
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

    Philly over AZ huh? I see you still hungover from Farther’s Day..Wish you were a gambling man #Ea$yMoney

  • Steve Behrens

    Mediocre Bears Team? You should do some research on teams instead of just looking at last years record.

  • Dr Muon Funk

    Who won last year?

  • Cutler2Marshall312

    Dude they played against 2nd & 3rd stringers…I see your the type of dude who thinks a 8 the grader is tough b/c he beat a 4th grader…(Smh) I do give you one thing though, your a funny dude. STOP IT

  • Cutler2Marshall312

    That’s why I asked him not to long ago was he smoking that medical..wish he was a handicapper in Vegas #FreeMoney

  • Dr Muon Funk

    OMG you’re funny man. Love the excuses. Keep them up dude I guess if you keep talking eventually you believe your own BS. Andre Ellington was the only starter that didn’t play for Arizona during that game. Bet the house man.. love to see a dbag go broke.

  • Cutler2Marshall312

    I’m gone after this one little man, your in the weakest Div in the NFL, The NFC East..Your Div is the AFC West of the EastCoast and it’s been like that for YEARS..The Eagles have been a laughing stock in that Div which everyone knows including your Fans the Cowboys have

But there’s nothing wrong with hope..you better just hope with that uptempo play that the Eagles don’t have a couple of 3 and outs B/c that Dfense will fold…#ThatIsAll

  • Guest

    Coming from a team that was in the weakest division for over 10 years that’s a strong statement my friend. Wasn’t this a debate about who will between the Eagles and Cardinals this season? Is your dick really that small? Wow, it must be.

  • Dr Muon Funk

    NFC West was the weakest division for over 10 years! I’d probably watch it if you’re going to bring NFL history into this discussion. This was a discussion about who will win between Philadelphia and Arizona in 2014. Is you’re dick really that small my friend? Wow, it must be.

  • Cutler2Marshall312

    Black&Blue Division little man..and stop using dick in your comments..Your starting to make me think that’s how you get yours off.. Keep thoughts about another mans dick to yourself Twinkle Toes.. #BearByBirth

  • Brandon

    Seattle has went to Carolina 2 years in a row. Carolina hasn’t scored more than 12 points.

  • Brandon

    The AFC West sent 3 teams to the playoffs last yr. The only division to do so.

  • Todd

    Let’s keep the comments clean. Don’t need to use foul language in the posts.

    You guys forget the real error of this prediction. Maybe the Eagles will win, maybe they won’t. But score 39 points against the Cardinals??? I think not. The only teams to even come close last year were the Niners, Seahawks, and Titans. The first two were because they also had great defenses that ensured that they had the ball on offense a lot. The Titans had a good game while the Cardinals had a bad one and it went into overtime (giving more time for points. plus it was home). This is a home game for the Cardinals after only having to travel from Oakland (and therefore effectively getting a bye week on defense). Philly barely won last year despite the game being at home and during the winter. AND they scored 24 points while Foles was in the middle of a hot streak that he may or may not repeat. Even if he does, history tells us it will still be a close game and Arizona will be favored. And there definitely won’t be 39 points scored on Arizona.

  • J.B. Abell

    Yeah. I don’t see Seahawks undefeated at this point, but I don’t think the Panthers will be the ones to beat them. They will look pathetic offensively without all the WR they lost during the offseason (Seahwaks secondary is just way over the heads of the new WR corp they have). That leaves just the run game which will be stuffed because the Seahawks will already know thats their only hope. The Panthers awesome defense will tire out and become less effective as the game goes on. I’ll say something like 10-6 going into half time, but the Seahawks will take it 24-13
