Week 8 NFL Picks

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Dallas Cowboys
With Tony Romo out until mid November and a defense that is in disarray, this is a must win for the Cowboys who could fall to 4-4 with a loss today. The Buccaneers are coming into their zone and will look to force a lot of turnovers with Brad Johnson at the helm for the Cowboys
DePaoli’s Pick: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Washington Redskins at Detroit Lions
The Redskins at 5-2 are in good position as the half way mark appears. What they can’t afford is another loss to a team they should beat
DePaoli’s pick: Washington Redskins
Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins
The Dolphins have been a tough out for teams and they are getting exceptional play from linebacker Joey Porter who is second in the league with 8.5 sacks. The Bills have the chance to take command of the division with a road win today, but it will be a tough task
DePaoli’s pick: Buffalo Bills
St. Louis Rams at New England Patriots
The Rams have been a different team with Jim Haslett running the show. The Patriots are coming off of a impressive win against the Broncos. Take the Patriots
DePaoli’s Pick: New England Patriots
San Diego Chargers at New Orleans Saints
Both teams are off to disappointing starts and a loss for either team could derail their playoff hopes.
DePaoli’s Pick: New Orleans
Kansas City Chiefs at New York Jets
The Jets need to win games that they are suppose to and they failed to do that last week against the Oakland Raiders. The Chiefs are a mess and this should be a easy win for the Jets
DePaoli’s pick: New York Jets
Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles
The Falcons are playing very good football with a strong rushing attack led by Michael Turner. Quarterback Matt Ryan is having a Ben Roethlisberger impact. The Eagles are a up and down team and need this win
DePaoli’s pick: Philadelphia Eagles
Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers
Cardinals are coming off of big win against the playoffs and have their eye on a division title. The Panthers are 5-2 are the more physical team and need to get their rushing attack going
DePaoli’s pick: Arizona Cardinals
Oakland Raiders at Baltimore Ravens
The Ravens at 3-3 have a chance to improve to 4-3 in a game that they should win. The Raiders have been in games all year and will need a few big plays from JaMarcus Russell
DePaoli’s pick: Baltimore Ravens
Cincinnati Bengals at Houston Texans
Will the Bengals get their first win of the season? Probably not
DePaoli’s Pick: Houston

Cleveland Browns at Jacksonville Jaguars
Another loss will make it a tough task for the Browns to even have a chance to make the playoffs. They need to play with some urgency but playing in Jacksonville is a task in its self
DePaoli’s Pick: Jacksonville Jaguars
New York Giants at Pittsburgh Steelers
Experts are hyping this game as this year’s Super Bowl Preview. Pittsburgh was dealt a blow this week when it was revealed Bryant McFadden will be out for several weeks. No Willie Parker and No Aaron Smith have put the Steelers in a tough spot but the biggest hit will be losing Santonio Holmes who will be de-activated after being charged with possession of marijuana. Pittsburgh will need to limit the Giants pass rush and attack Eli Manning on the defensive side of the ball.
DePaoli’s Pick: Pittsburgh Steelers
Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers
Will a coaching change spark the 49ers?
DePaoli’s pick: S.F. 49ers
Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans
The Colts are coming off of a embarrassing loss to the Green Bay Packers while the Titans just keep on winning. The Colts have been very inconsistent but when they are on their game, they can beat anybody
Last week: 8-5
Overall Record: 62 – 39
