NFL Week 8 game picks: Can the Saints get back to .500?

1 of 3

We keep rolling along this NFL season, and we’re quickly approaching the halfway point of the year. Overall, there’s many surprises out there. Six teams are currently undefeated at this point in time, but that list will trim down to at least five teams after this week’s matchups. Here’s how the staff picks shape up for Week 8.

Staff Standings

1. Jan-Hendrik (70-35)
2. Andrew (66-39)
3. Jake (64-41)
4. John (63-42)
5. Spencer (62-43)
T-6. John S. (59-46)
T-6. Ian (59-46)
8. Brian (49-56)

TNF: Miami (3-3) at New England (6-0)

After a snoozing contest last week between the 49ers and Seahawks, we’re in for a real treat. The resurgent Dolphins, led by Dan Campbell, have whipped up on their opponents 82-36 in their last two. They simply look like a completely different team under Campbell. However, Tom Brady is 8-0 on Thursdays in his career. He has a modest 20:2 touchdown-interception ratio, and he’s playing at home.
