Hi everyone! Today I want to go over which team picks I got correct and wrong! I predicted that the Titans would beat the Chiefs 36-30, but the final score was 27-3 Titans over the Chiefs. The Titans offense and defense played very well. The Chief’s defense was awful once again and the offense did not even score a touchdown as they were held to just 3 points all game. The Chiefs are 3-4 and the Titans are 5-2 on the season. I predicted that the Packers would beat the Football Team 45-17, but the final score was 24-10 Packers over the Football Team. I predicted that the Raiders would beat the Eagles 30-17, but the final score was 33-22 Raiders over the Eagles. I predicted that the Rams would beat the Lions 45-16 in a blowout, but the final score was 28-19 Rams over the Lions. The Lions were very aggressive by recovering an onside kick, and faking the punt a couple of times. The reason why they wanted to do that is because they knew that they cannot win in a shootout against a very good team. But again, they still lost. I predicted that the Buccaneers would beat the Bears 29-17, but the final score was 38-3 Bucs over the Bears. The Bucs offense and defense played very well, especially on defense because they did not allow the Bears to score a touchdown on offense just like the Chiefs. I predicted that the Cardinals would beat the Texans 41-17, but the final score was 31-5 Cardinals over the Texans. I predicted that the Saints would beat the Seahawks 27-20, but the final score was 13-10 Saints over the Seahawks in a pretty close game, but a low scoring game as well.
I predicted that the Ravens would beat the Bengals 27-24, but the final score was 41-17 Bengals over the Ravens. I predicted that the 49ers would beat the Colts 26-23, but the final score was 30-18 Colts over the 49ers. So, based off my team picks, I have gotten 7 out of 9 picks correct! I only got 2 team picks wrong to win and lose!
Now, let’s get started on week 8 picks, shall we?! The first game I will predict is the Titans @Colts game, the divisional rivalries. Both of these teams are coming off with their wins last week. I think that this will be a good game. I think I am going to get a slight edge to the Titans over the Colts in a close game 30-24 because I think right now the Titans are rolling especially the running back Derrick Henry. I think the Colts can keep up with the Titans, but at the end, the Titans eventually find a way to beat the Colts, possibly in overtime. The next game I will predict is the Dolphins @Bills game, the divisional rivalries. I think the Bills will come out on top of the Dolphins 34-19. The Dolphins are just playing awful football and losing games. The next game I will predict is the Bengals @Jets game. Yeah, I expect the Bengals to come out swinging and beat the Jets pretty good 40-10. The next game I will predict is the Steelers @Browns game, the divisional rivalries. I think this is going to be a really good game. I think I am going to give the edge to the Browns over the Steelers in a close game 27-24. The next game I will predict is the Eagles @Lions game. Both of these teams are coming off with their losses last week. I do think the Eagles will beat the Lions 26-17 in a close game. The next game I will predict is the Rams @Texans game. I think the Rams will beat the Texans pretty easily 40-10. The Rams will be coming out with fire with fire. The next game I will predict is the 49ers @Bears game. I think the Bears might actually beat the 49ers in a close game 23-20 because I think the Bears are starting to play a bit better even though they lost 2 in a row. The next game I will predict is the Patriots @Chargers game. I think the Chargers will beat the Patriots 38-21 because this is a team that the Chargers should beat tomorrow. The next game I will predict is the Jaguars @Seahawks game. Both of these teams are not playing good football right now. However, I do expect the Seahawks to finally snap their losing streak with the win over the Jags 24-13 because they are a better team than the Jags. The next game I will predict is the Buccaneers @Saints game, the divisional rivalries. Both of these teams are coming off with their wins last week. I think that this should be a great game. I think the Bucs will find a way to get the win over the Saints 31-23 because the offense and defense will later on in the game step up and start making big plays. The next game I will predict is the Washington Football Team @Broncos game. I do expect the Broncos to finally win the game over the Football Team 33-17. The next game I will predict is the Cowboys @Vikings game on Sunday Night Football. Both of these teams are coming off with their wins and their bye weeks. I think the Dallas Cowboys will come out on top over the Vikings in a close game 32-27 because I think the Cowboys are a better team than the Vikings. They’re going to be a lot of Vikings and Cowboys fans there so get pumped up! The last game I will predict is the Giants @Chiefs game on Monday Night Football. The Giants are coming off with their win last week over the Panthers 25-3 and the Chiefs are coming off with a bad loss last week against the Titans. I do expect a bounce back win for the Chiefs over the Giants 36-24 because I think their defense might play a little bit better. They still might struggle, but it will be enough to beat the Giants plus the Giants can’t really score 30 points in a game.
