My Week 8 predictions
10-4 last week Boys and Girls with another great upset pick (Denver over the Steelers). And if it hadn't been for those meddling kids... sorry Lions ....
Cleveland Browns at St.Louis Rams
Now I want the Rams and Dolphins to win. Just as the 1972 Dolphins want to stay immortal, I want the 1976 Bucs to remain that way too. Upset pick: Rams.
Detroit Lions at Chicago Da Bears
No way Rod Marinelli pulls out another Houdini smoke and mirrors trick this week. It won't be pretty but Chicago will get it done. Pick: Bears.
Indianapolis Colts at Carolina Panthers
I have to give the Bucs UK's resident Panther-hater a lift to Wembley Stadium on Sunday. I think he'll be rooting for Peyton in this one. Amazing upset pick: Panthers.
Exit 16W off the Jersey Turnpike Giants at London Dolphins
Cam Cameron was last seen calling Larry Csonka out of retirement. The travel disruption puts this one a little more up in the air but still... it's the Dolphins. Pick: Giants.
Oakland Raydurs at Tennessee Titans
Remember a couple of weeks back when the Raiders led the AFC West at 2-2? No, we don't either. Pick: Titans.
Philadelphia Iggles at Minnesota Vikings
No idea on this one so I asked my six-year old daughter to predict it - and Tanith is going for Philadelphia. Pick: Eagles.
Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals
Did you know that when the Bengal players play Monopoly, they fight over the "Get out of Jail free" cards. Pick: Steelers.
Buffalo Bills at NY J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets
The battle of upstate New York. If the Bills win, and the Patriots lose, then Buffalo moves to within three games of the lead in the AFC East. Silly isn't it? Pick: Bills.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
I'll be the one reporter at Wembley in the press box listening to this one in his headphones over the internet. Pick: Bucs (of course).
Houston Texans at San Diego Super-Chargers
The location of this game is more unlikely than the result. But just how did Sage Rosenfels almost pull out a win last week? Real upset pick: Texans.
New Orleans Saints at San Francisco 49ers
Dear old Trent Dilfer. Still the nicest guy in the NFL, still the worst QB. Even the Saints' secondary can't lose this one for them. Pick: Saints.
Washington Redskins at New England VideoCheats
Even if the Pats are looking ahead to next week already, they still should have enough to beat CryBoy Dan Snyder's team. Pick: Patriots.
Green Bay Packers at Denver Ex-Bucs
I remember a classic MNF game from the 80s between these two teams that was a total white-out. This one won't be a wash-out but a last great MNF for Brett Favre. Pick: Packers.
