Sorry sorry sorry, I forgot to post this yesterday but here it is today. I promise we all had our Thursday night picks in before the game started. That being said, it’s nice to start the week off with a win (though I wish we didn’t allllll pick it.)

Quick pat on the back for myself and Nic who correctly called the Panthers beating the Eagles. Good work us!

Now, onto Week 8.

Unanimous picks: Texans over Dolphins (good work everyone), Chiefs over Broncos, Steelers over Browns, Patriots over Bills

Ledge picks: Jaguars over Eagles (Pete), Jets over Bears (Heath), Raiders over Colts (Clark)

I BELIEVE IN LONDON BLAKE BORTLES! There’s no place on this green rock we call Earth that Bortles loves more than jolly ol’ England. The dude is a beast in London and I just have the tummy feeling he’ll do enough to help the Jaguars beat the Eagles.

For the first time this year I think, the Rams are not unanimous picks! Both Clark and Heath have the Packers upsetting the Rams which could happen, but I’m thinking it’s not very likely. But if it does happen, they will look very smart. I do agree this might be the biggest test for the Rams to date but they also faced the Vikings and handled them pretty easily. We shall see.

Here are the full Week 8 picks:
