Week 8 NFL picks: This could backfire

Joe Nicholson-US PRESSWIRE

A look at Pride Of Detroit's Week 8 picks.

After a very forgettable Week 6, I rebounded to put together an excellent Week 7 in Pride Of Detroit Pick'em. I had a 10-3 record last week, moving me up to a tie for 14th in POD Pick'em and taking my overall record up to 62-42 on the season.

This week, I'm hoping for another strong performance, especially because I'm picking the Detroit Lions to beat the Seattle Seahawks. I've gone against the Lions the last couple weeks, but I just have a good feeling about Sunday's game. I think that with their backs against the wall and with the game being at Ford Field, the Lions will put together their best performance of the season and get things moving in the right direction. If they don't, then I feel safe in predicting that mock drafts will suddenly become a hot topic of conversation.

Here's a look at all of my Week 8 picks:

Season record: 62-42

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Minnesota Vikings

Carolina Panthers at Chicago Bears

San Diego Chargers at Cleveland Browns

Seattle Seahawks at Detroit Lions

Jacksonville Jaguars at Green Bay Packers

Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans

New England Patriots at St. Louis Rams (in London)

Miami Dolphins at New York Jets

Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles

Washington Redskins at Pittsburgh Steelers

Oakland Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs

New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys

New Orleans Saints at Denver Broncos

San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals

Non-Lions game to watch

The Giants/Cowboys game at 4:25 p.m. ET will have my attention, mainly because there is only one other late afternoon matchup (Raiders at Chiefs). Why has the Sunday afternoon schedule been so unbalanced the last couple weeks?
