NFL in London? How about LOS ANGELES?!?!

Eric’s Week 8 NFL Picks

Last Week: 8-6 Season: 55-49

MIAMI (3-3) +1 @ CINCINNATI (2-4) O/U 44.5 pts
-Dolphins played well and were robbed in last week’s 23-22 loss to the Steelers. Defending AFC North Champ Bengals, surely, won’t lose a 4th straight game will they? BENGALS (22-14, DOLPHINS)

JACKSONVILLE (3-4) +6.5 @ DALLAS (1-5) 44 pts
-Things are looking up for the Cowboys. The most over-rated and over-hyped player in NFL history, QB Tony Romo’s out with a broken clavicle. Pocket passer Jon Kitna replaces Romo. Kitna just has to hand off the ball and complete a pass here and there. Jags getting QB David Garrard Back. He should just give the ball to RB Maurice Jones-Drew. COWBOYS (35-17, JAGUARS)

WASHINGTON (4-3) +3 @ DETROIT (1-5) 44.5 pts
-Lions QB Matthew Stafford’s back after suffering a shoulder injury in week 2. Lions with two weeks to prepare for the NFC’s worst defense which did a number on the Bears last week. CB DeAngelo Hall with four picks of Bears QB Jay Cutler. REDSKINS (37-25, LIONS)

BUFFALO (0-6) +7 @ KANSAS CITY (4-2) 46.5 pts
-Bills getting ready to select Stanford QB Andrew Luck with the top overall pick in the 2011 Draft. Chiefs rolling. CHIEFS (13-10, CHIEFS)

CAROLINA (1-5) +2.5 @ ST. LOUIS (3-4) 37.5 pts
-Rookie QB Sam Bradford and the Rams should be able to regroup against a bad Panthers team at home after last week‘s road loss to the Bucs. Rams RB Steven Jackson questionable with a fractured finger. He’ll play and run all over the Panthers. RAMS (20-10, RAMS)

GREEN BAY (4-3) +6 @ NY JETS of NEW JERSEY (5-1) 42.5 pts
-Jets with two weeks to prepare for a still banged-up Packers team that beat the Vikings this past Monday Night. Emotionally drained and going up against one of the top teams in the league, Packers are cheese. JETS (9-0, PACKERS)

DENVER (2-6) +2.5 @ SAN FRANCISCO (1-5) 43 pts (London)
-If the league’s trying to attract fans by playing a regular season game on a neutral field, instead of flying over-seas to London, England why not play the game in our nation’s second-largest market which is without an NFL team. LOS ANGELES! And have the Rams play San Francisco. Oh well. 49ERS (24-16, 49ERS)

Just for you, the WLAF (later, NFL Europe) 1992 World Bowl Game between the London Monarchs and the Barcelona Dragons at Wembly in London.

TENNESSEE (5-2) +4.5 @ SAN DIEGO (2-5) 44.5 pts
-Chargers can’t be that bad and the Titans can’t really be that good. CHARGERS (33-25, CHARGERS)

SEATTLE (4-2) +2.5 @ OAKLAND (3-4) 41 pts
-Who are the Raiders that won at Denver last week, 59-14? Was Ken Stabler handing off to Mark Van Eghen and throwing to Cliff Branch? Pete Carroll’s Seahawks looking to work a strangle-hold on the NFC West. RAIDERS (33-3, RAIDERS)

MINNESOTA (2-4) +5.5 @ NEW ENGLAND (5-1) 43.5 pts
-The more things change, the more they stay the same for the Patriots. Tom Brady and some flashy catchers. For the Vikings, QB Brett Favre is a gambling gunslinger. Two slightly fractured bones in that left ankle won’t stop his consecutive game streak. WR Randy Moss back in Foxboro after trade that sent him back to Minneapolis two weeks ago. I smell upset. VIKINGS (28-18, PATRIOTS)

TAMPA BAY (4-2) +3 @ ARIZONA (3-3) 39 pts
-The Cardinals don’t have a quarterback. The Buccaneers have Josh Freeman. BUCCANEERS (38-35, BUCCANEERS)

PITTSBURGH (5-1) EVEN @ NEW ORLEANS (4-3) 45 pts (SNF)
-Must’ve been “throw-back day” in the Big Easy with “Aints Bags” handed out last week. QB Drew Brees threw four picks in the Saints 30-13 home loss to the Browns. Steelers got away with one beating the Dolphins by one. SAINTS (20-10, SAINTS)

HOUSTON (4-2) +5.5 @ INDIANAPOLIS (4-2) 51 pts (MNF)
-Texans worked the Colts opening day with RB Arian Foster running for over 200 yards against Indy. QB Peyton Manning won’t lose to this team twice in a season. COLTS (30-17, COLTS)

LOS ANGELES (15 yrs, 8 wks)
