NFL week 8 scores:
Sunday Night Football Results:
Green Bay at Kansas City was a fun game to watch.
The Packers struck quickly going up 14 zip. The Chiefs without Mahomes
came back and took the halftime lead at 17-14 but in the second half the
Chiefs looked winded. The Packers got a great game from Rodgers again
and the Chiefs had no answer for Aaron Jones with 226 APY. Packers cover
the -3.5 and move to 7-1. Chiefs fall to 5-3 and face a tough Vikings
team (6-2) next week at Arrowhead. The early line has the Vikings -3.
Expect that to flip to Vikings +3 or +4 if Mahomes plays. With last
night's Chiefs loss he likely will be out there. If the Packers stay
healthy and continue to play this well, look for the NFL bosses dream
Super Bowl with the Packers in it for the 100th anniversary celebration
(We think that was their plan before this season started. The
officiating sure reflects that. No one gets more favorable calls than
Aaron Rodgers and company).
Packers 31 -
San Francisco was at home
today against a Carolina Panthers team that had a lot of money on them
today. We opted to stay off this game. The smart money was on the 49ers
though. San Francisco came out super charged and totally overwhelmed the
Panthers early going up 27-3. The 49ers defense again played
unbelievably well. Bosa was huge with 3 sacks and a late game pick with
a great return to the Panthers 3. They failed to punch it in but got a
field goal off it to go up 44-13. Bosa was beast mode all day. Playing
like an MVP. The defense had 7 sacks and the Panthers had no answer.
Coleman was on fire for the offense and it was all Niners today with 5
rushing touchdowns. They stay undefeated, moving to 7-0. 49ers roll.
Niners best start since 1990 (10-0). I would not want to be the Arizona
Cardinals next week.
49ers 51 -
Cleveland at New England started out looking like a blowout as Pat's put
up a quick 17 off Cleveland fumbles. The Cleveland Defense held tough most of
the day though making Brady look average but their offense just couldn't get it
done in Foxboro. Patriots improve to 8-0 with a huge game in Baltimore next
week. If they can find a way to win that, undefeated is within reach.
Patriots 27 -
The London England game today was Rams/Bengals. The hapless Bengals
managed to keep this game interesting, if you were playing the spread.
Down 14 Dalton put on a huge pair of drives late in the 4th quarter but
came up snake eyes. Their last drive made it to the end zone,
overturned. Rams hold and cover the -12. The Rams had to have this one.
They move to 5-3. It wasn't pretty but they will take it. Bengals fall
to 0-8, fighting Miami for that #1 draft pick in 2020.
Rams 24 -
The Colts found a way again improving to 5-2
against a bad Denver team (2-6). Adam Vinatieri ended up kicking the
game winner late after missing a 45 yarder in the 3rd quarter. Ho hum,
Final: Colts 15 -
The Jets at the Jaguars was a typical Jets game of
2019. They pretty much sucked all day, again. Darnold threw 3 more
picks today Jets drop to 1-6. The Jags did what they needed to win. They
improve to 4-4.
Jaguars 29 -
Seattle at Atlanta was a bit of a head scratcher game. Many thought the
Seahawks would blow Atlanta out today as Matt Ryan was out. The Hawks
managed to win but the secondary story was Schaub at QB for Atlanta. 39
of 52 for 460 yards. Only one TD though and also a pick. Seattle doesn't
put up big numbers but they find a way.
Seahawks 27 -
Down in the Big Easy, Drew Brees is back and made
it look easy. That is all you need to know. The Cardinals and Murray, had no
chance of covering this line.
New Orleans 31 -
Tampa Bay at Tennessee was too close to call.
Winston had 4 picks but that wasn't all his fault as the Titans defense was
stout. The big play of this game was a Titans faked punt which was blocked late
in the 4th quarter and returned for a go ahead Tampa TD. Then there was the
whistle blowing the play dead. There are a whole bunch of angry people in Tampa
Bay tonight. When is the NFL going to stop blowing early whistles on live, game
Titans 27 -
Eagles at the Bills was a game that had me fooled
this week. My top prognosticator, Eddie Brady, told me all week that the Eagles
were going to step up big over the over-rated Bills. He was right. Eagles stay
alive with a much needed win. Watch out for them as they continue to bring
injured guys back. They are still our favorite to win the NFC East.
Final: Eagles 31 -
San Diego visited the Chicago Bears today and both
needed a win. It was a dogfight. Bears missed a field goal as time ran out for a
tough loss at home.
Chargers 17 -
The New York Giants at The Detroit Lions was a fun game between two
teams going nowhere this year. Both look to play the spoiler down the stretch,
but can they?
Detroit 31 -
Thursday night football results:
The Vikings got their 4th straight win on Thursday
night. Case Keenum kept it close in the first half, swapping field goals. Keenum
went out with a phantom injury just before the half and never came back. Without
him in the second half, the Vikings made it look easy.
Vikings 19 -
