2015 NFL Football Betting – Weekly NFL Preview For Week Eight

Posted by Stan Simmons on 10/29/2015 9:06:35 PM

The NFL season moves into week eight, and with the middle of the season now upon us, a number of teams are getting into situations which demand victories. If teams want to make the playoffs or win divisions or both, they can’t afford to drop games if they’ve struggled thus far.

1 – Best Sunday Afternoon Games:

New York Giants @ New Orleans Saints, Cincinnati Bengals @ Pittsburgh Steelers, New York Jets @ Oakland Raiders, Seattle Seahawks @ Dallas Cowboys

The best Sunday afternoon games are not necessarily incredible attractions, but they are the best because they’re clearly more important than the other games on the schedule, and they’re going to be more revealing about the true quality and character of the teams involved. The New York Giants, like every other team in the NFC East, are a complete mystery, and generally mediocre. The East is waiting for one team to seize control, and the Giants can take a step in that direction by winning a road game against a team which just outplayed the Indianapolis Colts. New Orleans is getting better as the season goes along, and if the Saints beat the Giants, they will continue to overcome their horrible month of September.

The New York Jets have still been better than expectations, but they lost to New England and typically failed to finish a game they easily could have won. New York has to bounce back at Oakland if it wants to think of itself as a playoff team. The Raiders are definitely better than they’ve been in some time, but they also need to win this game if they want to realistically chase the playoffs.

The best game of the whole day is Cincinnati at Pittsburgh. With Ben Roethlisberger back, the Steelers – who held up reasonably well (though not perfectly) without Big Ben – can make a run at the AFC North, which is led by the unbeaten Bengals. If Cincinnati can win in Pittsburgh, it would already have a half-grip on the North. It would be extremely difficult for the Steelers to make up a lot of ground in the second half of the season. This is a chance for the Bengals to say that they’ve really learned from past seasons and their failures.

The defending NFC champion Seattle Seahawks should beat the Dallas Cowboys, given that Dallas is a very weak team without Tony Romo at quarterback. Dez Bryant might return at receiver, though, so the Seahawks might have more to worry about than previous Cowboy opponents. Seattle still hasn’t scored 30 points since week one against St. Louis, and in that game, the Seahawks’ defense and special teams scored touchdowns, so the offense has not scored more than 26 points (directly) in any game this season. Seattle will need that offense to perform at some point.

2 – Sunday Night Football: Green Bay Packers @ Denver Broncos

This is a matchup of two 6-0 teams, but it seems that only the Packers are a complete team. Peyton Manning of the Broncos looks well past his prime, and it’s hard to see how Denver can score enough to win here.

3 – Monday Night Football: Indianapolis Colts @ Carolina Panthers

The Colts are an absolute mess after losing at home to New Orleans. Indianapolis was supposed to be an AFC contender, but it will not be one of the top three teams in the conference playoffs. That much is certain, and we’re not even halfway through the season. Carolina, at 6-0, isn’t blowing people away, but it is winning. At home, the Panthers have to like their chances here.
