NFL Predictions: Week 8 Picks for Every Game

Athlon's experts pick every winner for every game on the Week 8 slate

It's Week 8 of the NFL season and injuries continue to make their presence felt. The latest to go down include reigning NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes, along with Matt Ryan, Adam Thielen, and Kerryon Johnson, among others. The Mahomes injury, in particular, could have a big impact over the next few weeks.

 

It certainly will have an impact on the "Sunday Night Football" matchup between Green Bay and Kansas City. Not only does Mahomes' absence rob fans of a chance to see him and Aaron Rodgers go toe-to-toe, but it means the Packers are probably going to be favored to extend their winning streak to four in a row while the Chiefs try to avoid a third loss in four games.

 

There are plenty of other intriguing games on the Week 8 schedule, including Cleveland in New England as the Browns come off of a bye to try and hand the Patriots their first loss. Undefeated San Francisco hosts Carolina (also coming off of a bye), Philadelphia looks to bounce back on the road against Buffalo, the Chargers and Bears match up in a pairing of teams desperate for a win, and Oakland is in Houston in a matchup of teams trying to stay in the thick of the playoff chase in the AFC. The London Games also resume with Bengals vs. Rams in Wembley Stadium.

 

The Week 8 action kicks off with "Thursday Night Football" between Washington and Minnesota in a game that will have Kirk Cousins, Adrian Peterson, and Case Keenum all facing their former team. And speaking of familiar faces, that's what will happen to Minkah Fitzpatrick when Pittsburgh hosts Miami for "Monday Night Football." It was just a couple of weeks ago that Fitzpatrick was playing for the Dolphins. Now he has a chance to help the Steelers get within a game of .500 while keeping Miami winless.

 

So which teams will come out on top in every NFL game in Week 8? Athlon's own Rob Doster (@AthlonDoster) and Mark Ross (@AthlonMark), along with AthlonSports.com contributor Bryan Fischer (@BryanDFischer), predict the winners for every game this week:
