NFL Gameweek 8

Heading into the NFL Gameweek 8 we have seen the Patriots and 49ers extend their unbeaten runs, Jets QB Sam Darnold seeing ghosts ahead of Halloween and Bears punt-returner Cordarelle Patterson returned a kick off for 100-years.

This Sunday sees the Bengals take on former Superbowl finalists LA Rams at Wembley Stadium


Saints v Cardinals

In the NFL Gameweek 8, all the talks around this game is whether or not QB Drew Brees will be fit to return. Whether the Saints could win the game without him is irrelevant, Drew Brees plays if he’s ready, no matter how good Teddy Bridgewater has been.

The Saints at 6-1 have been nothing short of impressive. Lead back Alvin Kamara was out last week against the Bears but they still got the job done thanks to the master-mind of Sean Peyton.

The first overall pick in this years draft Kyler Murray has had an inconsistent year. At 3-3-1 the Cards will put up a fight but eventually wilt in the fourth quarter.

Selections: New Orleans Saints win 7/12 points @ 7/2. Under 48.5 points @ 17/20. David Johnson and Alvin Kamara anytime touchdowns.


Panthers v 49ers

There are so many intriguing questions heading into this one in NFL Gameweek 8. Can the 49ers continue their unbeaten run? Can recently traded Emmanuel Sanders have an early impact for the Niners? Will Christian McCaffery continue his MVP form? Or will Kyle Allen continue to keep Cam Newton out of the starting job?

It’s hard to pick against the undefeated 49ers and Robert Saleh’s defense right now. Dee Ford, DeForest Buckner, Nick Bosa and Richard Sherman have dominated their hapless opponents along the way. Carolina’s offensive line hasn’t communicated or protected well all season, a problem for a young quarterback like Kyle Allen.

Selections-San Francisco 49ers to win 4/11, Tevin Coleman first touchdown scorer 7/1 and Christian McCaffery to score a brace.


Browns v Patriots

The New England Patriots are one of two undefeated teams remaining in the NFL.

Baker Mayfield and the Browns will ride into Foxboro with their usual swagger and confidence.

I have to back the Patriots and can’t go against a Bill Belichick defense that is the best in the league. But the offense under Tom Brady has been anything but. With injures on the offensive line and at fullback, the signing of receiver Mohamed Sanu hopes to spark Josh McDaniels offense into life.

At 2-4 the Browns haven’t shown that their coached well enough with first time coach Freddie Kitchens, to cause an upset in Gillette Stadium. As long as the Browns don’t turn over the ball and beat themselves, this should be closer than expected.

Selections-Patriots -10.5 @ 17/20, Patriots defense to score a touchdown and Mohamed Sanu to score an anytime touchdown.


Packers v Chiefs

Aaaron Rodgers had the perfect game any Quarterback could have last week, throwing for 429 yards and 6 TD’s. Rightfully being awarded NFC Player of the Week.

What could have been a new age v old age battle, if Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes was fit for this one. The 2019 Regular Season MVP has been playing through a leg injury these past two weeks, and has been sidelined for up to three weeks.

The Chiefs are also without defensive linemen Chris Jones and Frank Clark, cornerback Kendall Fuller and offensive linemen Eric Fisher and Andrew Wylie. The Packers should feast upon this injury-riddled team.

ARod, Aaron Jones and a surprisingly solid defense have put Green Bay in a strong position for make the playoffs already, sitting at 6-1. Coach Matt LeFleur and Rodgers will certainly want to put on a show on Monday Night Football.

Selections-Green Bay Packers to win @ 4/9, Over 48.5 total points 17/20 and Marquez-Valdes Scantling first TD scorer.
