NFL Week 8 Picks

Prime Video Thursday night football gets Week Eight started on the best possible foot with a potential Super Bowl Matchup of the Baltimore Ravens at Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

At the beginning is a strong quarterbacking matchup of Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson and Tampa Bay’s Tom Brady. However, Jackson has not been quite the same since his 2019 NFL Most Valuable Player season that ended with a stunning home playoff loss to the Tennessee Titans. NFL defensive coordinators have figured out how to defend the dual-threat Jackson.

The Ravens’ defense has not been as stout as in their championship years. Baltimore had a playoff berth in hand heading into the final month of the 2021 season but imploded badly. The Ravens are rededicated to gaining a postseason spot, at the very least, for the 2022 campaign.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have the unique challenge of a new head coach taking over a successful franchise. Todd Bowles replaces the retired Bruce Arians. Bowles was previously the head coach of the New York Jets from 2015 through 2018, where he went an abysmal 24-40, including 5-11, 5-11, and 4-12 in his final three years.

Bowles is getting a second lease on life, largely because NFL commissioner Roger Goodell feels the heat for lacking African-American head coaches. Now comes the challenge for Bowles of the high-wire act of balancing the wishes of Tom Brady and maintaining football discipline and polish.

BYE WEEK: Chiefs, Chargers

There is an interesting matchup of the Denver Broncos at the Jacksonville Jaguars in the early window. This game is a strange matchup that could present problems to the Broncos. Denver is expected to be riding high with new quarterback Russell Wilson, who escaped the mess made by the Seattle Seahawks. Jacksonville is trying to recover from the disastrous failed experiment of Urban Meyer, who didn’t even make it to the end of his rookie campaign as head coach.

Jacksonville hired veteran NFL coach Doug Pedersen, who led the Eagles to their only Super Bowl championship. Pedersen’s first task is getting second-year quarterback Trevor Lawrence up to speed after a lost rookie season. The game in Jacksonville could be a potential letdown trap for the Broncos.

The New England Patriots will be gunning for their second playoff season in two years with Mac Jones as the starting quarterback. New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson had a rough rookie campaign, but the Jets still believe he is the man to turn them around.

NBC Sunday Night Football features a potential Super Bowl preview matchup of the Green Bay Packers at the Buffalo Bills. Quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers of the Packers and Josh Allen of the Bills promise to bring firepower.

Rodgers must adapt without his favorite receiver Davante Adams, who defected for a lesser contract with the Las Vegas Raiders. Allen and the Bills came a long way last year, but their heartbreaking loss in the AFC playoffs to the Kansas City Chiefs presents a fork in the road.

ESPN Monday Night Football features the all-Ohio battle of the Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns. Cincinnati was the surprise team of 2021, while Cleveland faltered last year after being the upstart team of 2020. The Bengals caught the NFL off guard just like the Browns did in the prior season. Now everyone will pay full attention to the Bengals and may again take the Browns lightly after their setback season.
