Week 8 NFL Picks: Lions, Please Don't Let Us Down

After two consecutive losing weeks, I'm Tebowing my way through Week 8 picks.

After the Lions end their losing streak (and I end mine), I'm taking my wife to broadway.

TITANS (-9.5) over Colts

Picking the Colts to cover last week and then seeing them lose by 50-some is one of my low points in life.

RAMS (+14.5) over Saints

Speaking of picking teams to cover against the Saints. 

GIANTS (-10.5) over Dolphins

2011 Dolphins, your bizarro 1972 Dolphins.

PANTHERS (-3.5) over Vikings

My friend who is in town this weekend is picking Vikings straight up, putting them in his parlay, and is starting Christian Ponder at QB in fantasy this week -- I have to go Panthers here.

Cardinals (+13.5) over RAVENS

TOO MANY POINTS, and did you watch last MNF?

TEXANS (-9.5) over Jags

Scobee MIGHT ruin this for me, but the Texans come out ready to play. 

BILLS (-4.5) over Redskins

This game will be played in Canada and everyone knows the Redskins don't play well in Canada.

Lions (-2.5) over BRONCOS

Stafford is a game-time decision. A brief pre-game conversation with Tim Tebow should be enough. And then this:

STEELERS (+2.5) over Patriots

Game of the week. 

Browns (+9.5) over 49ERS

No Golden Gate, I hate San Francisco and I'm dropping Vernon Davis

SEAHAWKS (+1.5) over Bengals

It took me way too long to realize what SSPD meant on ESPN Fantasy this morning -- that's what Cedric Benson is and why I feel like the Seahawks win here. 

Cowboys (+3.5) over EAGLES

Andy Reid is undefeated after the bye, which is exactly why Cowboys cover here.

Chargers (-3.5) over CHIEFS

This isn't quite the same as when the Chiefs hosted prime time against the Chargers last year.

Last week: 5-8

Season ATS: 57-46

Standings vs. commenter(s), my brother (W-L ... GB):

ME: 57-46 ... -
D.P.: 57-46 ... - (7-6 last week)
