Jeremy Sneed Week 8 NFL Picks

Thursday Night Football 7:25
Jacksonville Jaguars (2-4) @ Tennessee Titans (3-4)
-This is a matchup that I am actually really excited and I think will be an exciting game. The Jaguars had won back to back games prior to their loss last week to Oakland. The Titans fell victim to the same fate after winning back to back games. I am predicting an upset as I believe the Jaguars offense will come out swinging and knock off the Titans. Final Score: 27-24

Sunday Morning Football Game (In London) 8:30 AM
Washington Redskins (4-3) @ Cincinnati Bengals (3-4)
-Yet another game in London, but at least this one is being broadcasted on Fox. I think this is a good game for London because it involves two really good teams. The Redskins had won four in a row before losing last week and the Bengals have been underperforming all season. In this neutral site game, I think Kirk Cousins and the Redskins will outscore Andy Dalton and the Bengals.
Final Score: 32-17

Sunday Noon Games
Kansas City Chiefs (4-2) @ Indianapolis Colts (3-4)
-Ever since getting demolished by the Steelers, the Chiefs have won two straight and the defense has looked pretty well in doing so. The Colts have too many issues on offense relating to T.Y. Hilton and Jack Doyle being the only targets. I think the Chiefs defense will be too strong and lead Kansas City to the victory.
Final Score: 24-16

Oakland Raiders (5-2) @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-3)
-The Buccaneers are 0-2 at home and the Raiders are 4-0 on the road. That is a recipe for disaster for Jameis Winston and the Buccaneers. I am going with the Raiders in a not so close win.
Final Score: 38-27

Seattle Seahawks (4-1-1) @ New Orleans Saints (2-4)
-The Seahawks are coming off of an abysmal game Sunday night in which they tied with the Cardinals at 6-6. However, their defense looked fantastic and I think it will be too much for Drew Brees and the Saints. I am going with the Seahawks in a close victory.
Final Score: 26-23

Detroit Lions (4-3) @ Houston Texans (4-3)
-This could be the second hardest game to predict besides the Cardinals-Panthers game. These teams are very similar in that if their offense isn’t clicking, the game is pretty much over. I do think the Texans defense is much stronger than Detroit’s, and I think that will lead to a Houston win.
Final Score: 34-26

New York Jets (2-5) @ Cleveland Browns (0-7)
-The Browns are a team that shouldn’t be winless. If it wasn’t for Cody Parkey, the Browns would have at least one win. Last week, Ryan Fitzpatrick was benched, but got called into action when Smith tore his ACL leading to a Jets win. I am a believer in the Browns this week and they are my upset pick of the week as they will defeat the Jets. Final Score: 28-21

New England Patriots (6-1) @ Buffalo Bills (4-3)
-In week 3, the Bills defeated the Patriots 16-0. That was with a banged up Jacoby Brissett and barely any production from Gronk. This week will be much different, considering that LeSean McCoy is injured now. I think the Patriots will blow out the Bills to continue their dominance with Brady at the helm.
Final Score: 41-17

Arizona Cardinals (3-3-1) @ Carolina Panthers (1-5)
-Like I mentioned earlier, this is by far the hardest game to predict this week. The Panthers could get going any second and start looking like the Super Bowl contenders they were last year. The Cardinals have had a very up and down season with David Johnson being the lone bright spot on offense. I think the Panthers upset the Cardinals, if we can call it an upset. Coming off of a bye week can be crucial for teams, and I think it will be for Carolina.
Final Score: 24-23

Sunday Afternoon Game 3:05
San Diego Chargers (3-4) @ Denver Broncos (5-2)
-Despite the Chargers defeating the Broncos a few weeks ago, I am picking the Broncos because Trevor Siemian is back for this matchup. I think it will be a close game through three quarters, but Denver will pull away in the 4th.
Final Score: 30-20

Sunday Afternoon Game 3:25
Green Bay Packers (4-2) @ Atlanta Falcons (4-3)
-I am very confident that the Packers will put out a win this week. The offense had been weak leading into their Thursday night victory last week against the Bears. But the offense looked to be in sync in that game. I think the Packers take that confidence and take advantage of a poor Atlanta defense.
Final Score: 34-27

Sunday Night Football 7:30
Philadelphia Eagles (4-2) @ Dallas Cowboys (5-1)
-Some of you might be asking, “Well isn’t this one a tough game to predict?” I really don’t think so. The Cowboys have been looking better and better each week as Prescott and Elliott continue to shine. The Eagles have been looking worse and worse with Carson Wentz struggling prior to their win last week. I think #DakAttack and Ezekiel Elliott will run right through the Eagles defense and dominate this game from beginning to end.
Final Score: 36-26

Monday Night Football 7:30
Minnesota Vikings (5-1) @ Chicago Bears (1-6)
-The Vikings lost a tough one last week to the Eagles in a game where the offense looked awful. Just like how the Packers worked out their flaws against the Bears last week, I think the Vikings will come back to form and beat the Bears. Whether or not Jay Cutler plays, I think it will be a long night for the Bears as the offense will struggle against the strong Minnesota defense.
Final Score: 29-13
