Predicting the NFL results in week eight - Patriots and Bengals stay unbeaten

Football News

I got nine out 14 results correct once again with my Week Seven predictions.

If it wasn't for some shocking performances from teams that should have won I could have had a clean sweep so that's my goal for week eight despite some games likely to be extremely close.

Please comment with your own predictions as well as letting me know what you think of mine.

Miami Dolphins @ New England Patriots

The Dolphins are hot off the back of two wins in a row but trying to beat the Patriots on their own patch is not happening I'm afraid Dolphins fans.

Despite the injuries the Patriots have they will have too much for the Dolphins side.

Patriots win

Detroit Lions @ Kansas City Chiefs

Rather different outcomes for these two in week Seven, the Lions had all the tools to win but fell short whereas the Chiefs, I felt, would be out-gunned by the Steelers but they played well and grabbed the win.

They now both travel across the pond to play at Wembley, I expect the Chiefs to take confidence from their win over the Steelers and push on by beating the Lions in front of a capacity crowd in London.

Chiefs win

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Atlanta Falcons

The Buccaneers played some fantastic football in week seven but they just couldn't get over the line, the Falcons got a narrow victory on the road so I fully expect them to put Tamp Bay to the sword when they welcome them in week Eight.

Falcons win

Arizona Cardinals @ Cleveland Browns

The Cardinals have been red hot this season, only losing to the Rams and the Steelers. The Browns, meanwhile, have been a little less impressive, stuttering to a 2-5 record. I expect that to sadly change to 2-6. 

Cardinals win

New York Giants @ New Orleans Saints

Both these teams had good wins in week Seven which makes it even harder to choose between them, but I just have to go with my gut and my gut says a Saints win. I may live to regret this call.

Saints win

Minnesota Vikings @ Chicago Bears

Great win for the Vikings in week Seven, I picked them to lose last time out so this time I wont make the same mistake.

The Vikings will leave Chicago with a win. Sorry Bears fans you're going to be 2-5.

Vikings win

San Francisco 49ers @ St. Louis Rams

The Rams were unstoppable in week Seven, where as the struggling 49ers couldn't get going. Rams win and more misery for you 49ers fans I'm afraid.

Rams win

San Diego Chargers @ Baltimore Ravens

A loss for both these sides in week Seven has all but ended their hopes of a Super Bowl appearance unless something seriously impressive happens for one of these sides.

I expect the Chargers to bounce back the best which will result in them leaving Baltimore with a win, unfortunately for the Ravens they will be looking at a 1-7 start to their season.

Chargers win

Cincinnati Bengals @ Pittsburgh Steelers

The Bengals couldn't stop winning before their bye in week Seven so I fully expect them to continue where they left off when they visit the Steelers.

The Steelers have been up and down this season but week Eight I expect to be another down taking them 4-4.

Bengals win

Tennessee Titans @ Houston Texans

The Titans were unlucky against the Falcons last time out but if they play with the same commitment against the Texans the Titans will leave victorious.

Titans win

New York Jets @ Oakland Raiders

The Jets came close against the Patriots and I fully expect them to go one better when they visit Oakland in week Eight. The Raiders had a great win but I fear their defense will be no match for the Jets.

Jets win

Seattle Seahawks @ Dallas Cowboys

The Seahawks have begun to find form once again whilst the Cowboys fall further and further away, Seahawks should make it back to back wins.

Seahawks win

Green Bay Packers @ Denver Broncos

One of these teams will lose their perfect start to the season in week Eight. Both side had a bye in week Seven so should be fully rested.

I have had to think about this match the most of them all and still I struggled to pick a winner but taking everything into account I have gone for a Packers win, I feel their offence may have just enough to unlock the Broncos defense.

Packers win

Indianapolis Colts @ Carolina Panthers

The Colts have been inconsistent this season and they are not playing as well as the undefeated Panthers.

I fully expect the Panthers to welcome the Colts with open arms before sending them home pointless whilst they march on to a 7-0 start.

Panthers win

This is how I think Game week Eight in the NFL will play out, I am likely to be wrong on a few of these but I'm aiming to get more than 10 results correct this week.

Enjoy Game week Eight and check back here for my predictions in Game week Nine.
