NFL Predictions: Week 8 Picks for Every Game

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

The lightest slate of the NFL regular season produced quite a few blowouts and some rather ho-hum football games compared to what transpired over the first six weeks. Fortunately, Week 8 does offer quite a few intriguing matchups as well as two more games on the slate with only two teams on bye (vs. six in Week 7).

And Week 8 has the opportunity to get off to a strong start with Green Bay traveling to the desert to take on undefeated Arizona on "Thursday Night Football." The winner of this game takes a slight lead in the race for the NFC's top seed in the playoffs.

The 1 p.m. ET window on Sunday is highlighted by a quartet of divisional games including Tennessee-Indianapolis and Pittsburgh-Cleveland. Also, San Francisco-Chicago features a matchup of quarterbacks (Jimmy Garoppolo vs. Justin Fields) that need to bounce back from disastrous Week 7 performances.

Later on Sunday, Tampa Bay pays a visit to New Orleans as the Saints look to narrow the gap in the NFC South while the Patriots hope to build on the momentum of last week's rout of the Jets when they head to the West Coast to face the well-rested Chargers. Also after snapping their 20-game losing streak two weeks ago, Jacksonville comes off of its bye and heads to Seattle to play a reeling Seahawks team that's lost three in a row.

In prime time, both Dallas and Minnesota return to the field after their bye to square off against each other on "Sunday Night Football," while a Kansas City team in desperate need of a win hosts the New York Giants for "Monday Night Football."

So which teams will come out on top in every NFL game in Week 8? Athlon's own Rob Doster (@AthlonDoster), and Ben Weinrib (@benweinrib), along with AthlonSports.com contributors Bryan Fischer (@BryanDFischer) and Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) predict the winners for every game this week:
