Week 8 NFL Picks – 2011

by Paul Raymond | Posted on Sunday, October 30th, 2011

Here we go thinking it’s a pretty straight forward week with all but one favorite winning. There will be some close games but I do think the favorites pull them out.

As always home teams in caps.

NY GIANTS 34, Miami 20
HOUSTON 23, Jacksonville 13
BALTIMORE 26, Arizona 13
LOCK – New Orleans 32, ST. LOUIS 16
CAROLINA 25, Minnesota 22
TENNESSEE 24, Indianapolis 17

Detroit 24, DENVER 21
BUFFALO 20, Washington 17
Cincinnati 23, SEATTLE 16
SAN FRANCISCO 26, Cleveland 20
New England 30, PITTSBURGH 24

San Diego 30, KANSAS CITY 17

– New Orleans is an easy lock against the Rams, especially after last weeks performancce

– I think the Cowboys pull off a huge upset in Philly tonight. The Eagles may have a 12-0 record coming out of a bye in the Andy Reid era but it’s not as good as it appears. Philly sports talk radio looked at those 12 wins and only 3 or 4 could be considered quality, meaning they’ve been blessed with easy games after the bye. Look for the ‘Boys to steal one late.

– Buffalo struggles with a depleted Washington offense but pulls out the win.

– Denver gives a struggling Lions team a fight but the savior, Tebow once again doesn’t have enough to complete the comeback but does enough to excite his fan base.

– Steelers / Patriots of course the Game of the Week. I think Brady leads the Pats to a late touchdown drive for the win.

– Carolina / Minnesota could wind up as one of the better games this week two. Hopefully it winds up a well played game by both rookie QBs and not a turnover filled mess.

Last Week – No Picks
Season 53-21
UPSET – 3-2
LOCK – 4-1
Correct Scores – 0
Partially Correct Scores – 6
