POORE'S PICKS: Week Eight
Tony Romo (Evan Vucci)
The Game of the week has the Cowboys traveling to Detroit to take on the Lions as Jim Poore is back with his weekly picks column against the spread.
We are already half way through the NFL season and the picks remain as hot as ever. Here we go.
Carolina 6 @ Tampa Bay
The Bucs were not expected to be winless at this point.
San Francisco 16 1/2 @Jacksonville
Jacksonville is just embarrassing.
@Philadelphia 6 New York Giants
The Giants win streak ends at one.
@Kansas City 7 1/2 Cleveland
The Chiefs will remain undefeated.
@New Orleans 12 1/2 Buffalo
A win here just might clinch the NFC South for the Saints.
@New England 6 1/2 Miami
The Patriots rebound from the controversial call with a win over Miami.
@Cincinnati 6 1/2 New York Jets
The Bengals just might win the AFC North.
Pittsburgh 2 1/2 @Oakland
Good thing Oakland still has the Raiderettes.
@Denver 13 Washington
The Broncos bounce back big.
Green Bay 9 1/2 @Minnesota
Mounting injuries won't matter for Green Bay.
Seattle 10 1/2 @St. Louis
The Sam Bradford injury means no chance for a Rams victory.
Game of the Week
@Detroit 3 Dallas
There were few quality matchups this week, but the Lions and Cowboys should put up some points.
Stinker of the Week
@Arizona 2 1/2 Atlanta
The battle is for the birds.
