Week 8 NFL Prediction Recap

Week 8 was one of my worst weeks of predictions. A measly 8-6. Here’s what happened.

Correct

Bills vs. Patriots

Colts vs. Lions

Chiefs vs. Jets

Vikings vs. Packers

Saints vs. Bears

Seahawks vs. 49ers

Buccaneers vs. Giants

Eagles vs. Cowboys

Incorrect

Steelers vs. Ravens

Lamar Jackson had one of the worst games of his career. He turned the ball over four times, and had no pocket awareness. Two of the Ravens offensive linemen went down, Matthew Judon was ejected, Mark Ingram was inactive with a a high ankle sprain, and yet, the Ravens would have won if it wasn’t for some bad play-calling.

Falcons vs. Panthers

The Falcons held on to a fourth quarter lead. The Falcons outgained the Panthers by almost 100 yards, and the Falcons got ten more first downs then their NFC South counterpart.

Raiders vs. Browns

It was a blustery and wet day in Cleveland. The Browns and Raiders played sloppy football in large part because of the weather conditions. The Raiders got a touchdown, which was the difference in the game.

Dolphins vs. Rams

Tua Tagovailoa made his first NFL start against the Rams. He struggled throwing, totaling only 97 yards. But it was enough for the win. Jared Goff turned the ball over four times, one of which was brought all the way back for a touchdown. The Dolphins also had a punt return touchdown by Jakeem Grant.

Broncos vs. Chargers

The Broncos came back from a three touchdown deficit to beat the Chargers. The Broncos scored three 4th quarter touchdowns including the game winner by K.J. Hamler as the clock expired. The Chargers statistically outperformed the Broncos, in most regards. The one stat they didn’t win was turnovers. Justin Herbert threw two interceptions to Drew Lock’s one.

Bengals vs. Titans

Joe Burrow outgunned Ryan Tannehill to pick up a surprising win. The Bengals finished more of their drives then the Titans. The Bengals did a nice job of holding Derrick Henry to only 112 yards and a touchdown.

Week 8 Record: 8-6

Season Record: 79-40

See how I did on my week 8 NFL predictions.
