5 NFL Games Worth Watching In Week 8
The Big Game
Green Bay (6-0) at Denver (6-0) – Sunday, November 1st 8:30 PM ET
Two undefeated teams will enter battle on Sunday Night Football with only one 7-0 club able to emerge with the clash. The NFC North’s best travels to Colorado for a blockbuster matchup against the AFC West leading Broncos. Green Bay (currently favoured by a field goal on the road) boast quite possibly the best quarterback in football today plus a defense that’s allows a league low 16.8 points-per-game. Denver has a stellar defense of their own to contend with and an offense that’s desperate to find their way back to steamroller status. The over/under initially opened at 43 but has swollen to 45.5.
Four More To Watch
Miami (3-3) at New England (6-0) – Thursday, October 29th 8:25 PM ET
The Miami Dolphins dazzled last weekend with a decisive 44-26 throttling of Houston and provided interim coach Dan Campbell with his second win in as many games. The degree of difficulty gets cranked up several notches on Thursday night against a fearsome New England squad. The Pats have managed to rack up points galore (a league best 35.5 per contest) despite being a mess on the rushing side of things. Miami’s an eight point road longshot, but they could be very dangerous if they look like the team that thumped Tennessee and Houston earlier this month.
Cincinnati (6-0) at Pittsburgh (4-3) – Sunday, November 1st 1:00 PM ET
If the Steelers have a prayer of swooping back into top spot in the AFC North, they’ll need to knock off the blemishless Bengals to get there. The upside for Pittsburgh? It’s expected Ben Roethlisberger will return as the starting QB after four weeks of Michael Vick and Landry Jones filling in as substitutes. Cincy are favoured by 1.5 on the road for Sunday and need Andy Dalton to put his struggles against Pittsburgh behind him to reach 7-0 status. A bye week for the Bengals should have Cincinnati refreshed heading into battle.
New York Giants (4-3) at New Orleans (3-4) – Sunday, November 1st 1:00 PM ET
Two of the NFL’s most perplexing 2015 teams go head-to-head this weekend. New Orleans has overcome a disastrous 0-3 start to win three of their last four games including two in a row over Atlanta and Indianapolis. Meanwhile, the Giants are in first place in the underwhelming NFC East and could have Jason Pierre-Paul back in the lineup this week. The Saints are favoured by a field goal to keep their October momentum going in the squad’s first November matchup.
Indianapolis (3-4) at Carolina (6-0) – Monday, November 2nd 8:30 PM ET
Can Andrew Luck be shaken out of his turnover frenzy? The Colts QB has had a tough 2015 campaign that’s seen backup Matt Hasselbeck achieve better results than the franchise pivot and Indy hold onto the AFC South lead strictly due to how lousy the division is. If the Colts are going to wake up it might be Monday Night Football that jostles them back into quality play. The undefeated Panthers (who are favoured by seven) have managed to excel despite being a bottom tier team through the air. Indy’s shaky run defense will need to be in top form to handle a multifaceted rushing attack that’s racked up 868 yards in just six games.
