NFL Draft Diamonds Week 8 Picks and Predictions

Last week we were a miserable 7-6 on our weekly predictions. That brings our record to 59-39. We are 20 games above 500 but we have to fix that. We are better than 20 games up. So lets get started.
Detroit Lions v. Kansas City Chiefs

Matthew Stafford in London with Jim Bob Cooter is a match made in heaven. Expect the Lions to put up big points this week. Lions win easily 34-14 over the Chiefs.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers v. Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons are currently 6-1 and they should easily be 7-1 after this game. The Falcons are too much for Lovie Smith’s week cover 2 defense. Falcons 28-21 for the Bucs.

Arizona Cardinals v. Cleveland Browns

Johnny Manziel and Josh McCown may have more interceptions than touchdowns today when facing the Cardinals stingy defense. Cardinals win big 45-10

San Francisco 49ers v St. Louis Rams

Rams are the most unpredictable team in the NFL. They can beat the Seahawks and lose to the Redskins. This week in a division rival the Rams squeeze by 17-14.

New York Giants v. New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints are not easy to beat in the Big Easy. Saints quarterback Drew Brees has a field day and Rob Ryan’s defense shows up to shut down Louisiana native Eli Manning. Saints 24- Giants 17

Minnesota Vikings v. Chicago Bears

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has been playing like a Pro Bowler the last few weeks. That trend continues against their division foe. Vikings running backs struggle to get the ground game going and that kills them. Bears win 17-13 over the Vikings.

San Diego Chargers v. Baltimore Ravens

Chargers lost bad last week to the Raiders and they will rebound against a poor Ravens team. Chargers wide outs have a monster day. Chargers 35- Ravens 28

Cincinnati Bengals v. Pittsburgh Steelers

I have to role with the hot team. While Big is not a hundred percent, I still think he gets his team rolling. Antonio Brown wins the game on a long punt return that sets up the game winning field goal, but he misses. 24-23 Bengals squeeze by

Tennessee Titans v Houston Texans 

Last year, Zach Mettenberger and JJ Watt had a dispute on Twitter. Watt told Mett he needed to worry about #99 instead of selfies. Same thing happens today, Watt is not over it. Texans 17 Titans 9.

New York Jets v. Oakland Raiders

The New York Jets need a bounce back win versus the Raiders, but the Raiders are playing good football. The Jets had to travel to the wart coast and that is never easy. Jets pull it off though 21-20

Seattle Seahawks v. Dallas Cowboys

This game will not be close. Dallas loses, Matt Cassel throws 5 interceptions and Dez Bryant re-injures foot. Seahawks win 35-14

Green Bay Packers v. Denver Broncos

Denver Broncos are not playing great football, but Peyton Manning is tough as nails at home. Broncos stay undefeated on an OT field goal. 37-34

Indianapolis Colts v. Carolina Panthers

The Carolina Panthers defense is special and the Colts are on the decline. Chuck Pagano is on the hot-seat and someone in the Colts organization will be fired on Tuesday after they lose miserably on Monday Night. Panthers 42- Colts 24
