NFL Week 8 Picks for Every Game

As the NFL approaches the halfway point of the regular season, there's just one undefeated team left and really only a couple that have, for all intents and purposes, been eliminated from the playoff chase entering Week 8.

The machine that has been the Los Angeles Rams (7-0) welcome Green Bay to the West Coast as the Packers should be rested and healthier than they have been coming off of their bye. The Rams are already four games up on second-place Seattle in the NFC West with Arizona and San Francisco (who play each other this week) languishing well behind at 1-6.

The Week 8 slate features five divisional matchups, the most intriguing probably being Denver and Kansas City hooking up again. The Chiefs beat the Broncos 27-23 in Denver back in Week 4. Elsewhere, Philadelphia and Jacksonville get things started early on Sunday in London. Both teams are hoping the change of scenery will help them bounce back after discouraging losses last week.

But the most intriguing game on the schedule is the "Sunday Night Football" matchup of New Orleans and Minnesota. The Saints return to the scene of the "Minneapolis Miracle" that sent the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game and ended New Orleans'  2017 season in heartbreaking fashion. The Saints enter the rematch winners of six in a row while Minnesota has rattled off three straight after getting off to an uneven start.

Week 8 concludes with New England in Buffalo for "Monday Night Football." There may not be much intrigue in this game considering the fact that Tom Brady is 28-3 in his career against the Bills.
