Week 8 was one of my worst weeks of predictions. A measly 8-6. Here’s what happened.
Bills vs. Patriots
Colts vs. Lions
Chiefs vs. Jets
Vikings vs. Packers
Saints vs. Bears
Seahawks vs. 49ers
Buccaneers vs. Giants
Eagles vs. Cowboys
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
