Another week and another set of games on the schedule to predict right? This was a fairly easy week to predict, at least from hindsight, but it had a few tricky games in there to navigate through.
In my week 8 picks, I can tell you once again that I get my upset of the week pick right with the Oakland Raiders topping the Steelers and to think I was close to not picking them to win that game. My Detroit Lions pick looked like it was going to fail until the Cowboys combustive like they've been known to do, speaking of, how hellish is that NFC East right now? Can we say this could get as bad as the NFC West was a few years back, maybe? Anyways, here's my results from this week:
|Results||Straight Up||Spread||Rams Straight Up|
This week, as far as both my Spread and my Straight Up go, I posted some of my highest numbers in both categories on the season. My only loss in the Straight Up came with the Atlanta Falcons losing to the Arizona Cardinals in Arizona. As far as my Spread went, my "losses" came with the Rams keeping the game against the Seahawks way closer than I thought they would, which is good. Along with them, the Lions and the Falcons didn't beat the Spread like I thought they would. My fortunes are looking great in both Spread and Straight Up this week, just hope to keep it up as usual.

St. Louis Rams vs Tennessee Titans
I have the Rams winning this game. They just came from a moral victory when they didn't let the Seahawks completely wipe them off the field and once again they're at home. I don't think they let this game slip through their fingers, it should be close as always though.
Upset of the Week
St. Louis Rams over Tennessee Titans
Just a feeling, I just don't see the Rams losing this game.
Duh Pick of the Week
Seattle Seahawks over Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Iffy Pick of the Week
Green Bay Packers over Chicago Bears
This game could go either way, but the Packers are at home so I gave them the advantage.
