Week 8 NFL predictions are big news right now, as fans try to figure out how the week 8 schedule is going to play out. The week 8 NFL predictions include the Denver vs. San Francisco game in London, a great Sunday game of Green Bay vs. New York Jets, and a Monday night football game that has Houston vs. Indianapolis. At the beginning of the season, it might have been the Sunday night game that drew all the attraction, with Pittsburgh vs. New Orleans on the docket, but the Saints haven’t been playing like their 2009 selves this year.
The game with the most impact in week 8 has to be Houston vs. Indianapolis on Monday night. These two teams have become division rivals, but it has been a match-up that favored the Colts and Peyton Manning for the past few years. They play each other twice per year, and in 2010 it was the Houston Texans who drew first blood with a win down in Texas. Now they travel to play Indianapolis on their own home field, and just by looking at the current NFL standings, this is a game that could have a lot of impact on how the AFC South will play out this season. Right now, both teams have 4-2 records, trailing division leader Tennessee by one win.
According to the Week 8 NFL schedule, there are 13 games that will take place on Sunday, Oct. 31, and Monday, Nov. 1. Having the Halloween backdrop for many of the late Sunday games could be a great storyline if things don’t favor the team expected to win. It could also become a pretty good joke for sportscasters during what might be the most competitive week of the season so far.
In addition to all of the games that we already mentioned, there are three great late afternoon games on Sunday that are going to be hard to predict. Those games are Tennessee vs. San Diego, Minnesota vs. New England, and Tampa Bay vs. Arizona. The division leads are on the line in all these games, with the rise of Tampa Bay becoming a very interesting story in the NFC.
How these games will play out is anyone’s guess, but we have provided what we think will be the outcomes of week 8 below. Nearly all of the games will receive a national broadcast, with the NFL Red Zone providing the best coverage for fans. By the end of the weekend, we may have a more clear picture of which teams are the best in the NFL as well, because if Pittsburgh can beat New Orleans on the road, and the New York Jets can beat the Green Bay Packers, it could separate those two AFC teams as the best that the NFL has to offer right now.
