Ravens 26 Bengals 21

I thought Baltimore would struggle this year, but up until this point, they have proved me wrong in a big way. They are 5-2, and have won five of their last six games, including their last two by an average of 26.5 points. Joe Flacco has that offense clicking, and their front seven has somehow stood strong, and led their aging defense.

Dolphins 34 Jaguars 14

Miami isn’t going to go away quietly in the AFC East race, and they will roll over the Jaguars tomorrow. Jacksonville is coming off a nice win over the Browns in week seven, but Ryan Tannehill and that Dolphins’ pass rush will be too much for Blake Bortles and company. Dolphins win big.

Bills 24 Jets 20

Buffalo put together an awesome last second win over the Vikings last weekend, and that momentum will carry over to another win against their division rivals. Buffalo’s offense is far from perfect, especially after losing C.J. Spiller for the year last week, but they have a solid defense, and they will cause enough problems for Geno Smith to snag a narrow win.

Cardinals 27 Eagles 20

It’s scary to think about Philadelphia’s offense going up against all of that man coverage for the entire game, but I believe in this Cardinals’ team, so I’m rolling with them to advance to 6-1. Carson Palmer will maneuver his way through that tricky Eagles’ defense to lead Arizona’s offense to three big touchdowns through the air.

Browns 23 Raiders 17

Evidently the Browns aren’t quite ready to handle the success of winning in the NFL. After winning two in a row, Clevelend proceeded to get obliterated last week in Jacksonville, bringing this team back down to earth. However I believe in Brian Hoyer, and he will get them back on the right track tomorrow.

Colts 34 Steelers 24

The Colts are one of the best teams in the AFC right now, as they are led by arguably the fourth best quarterback in the game in Andrew Luck. Pittsburgh may throw something crazy at Luck to slow him down, especially with Reggie Wayne out, but I don’t think it will be enough to get the win. Indianapolis improves to 6-2.

Packers 35 Saints 31

Green Bay is on a roll, and they are going to do what is nearly impossible, which is go into the SuperDome and get a win. Drew Brees‘ Saints are really struggling, and Aaron Rodgeres is going to have a field day with that defense. Brees does play well at home, so this won’t be a blowout, but I’m taking Rodgers in this one.

Cowboys 31 Redskins 20


As much as I love the greatest quarterback in the history of the world, he won’t be able to do enough to give the Skins the win over the hottest team in the NFL. DeMarco Murray is going to ravage that Washington front, which will keep the McCoy scoring machine on the sideline, and allow Tony Romo to close the deal at home.
