Elite PICKS | NFL Week 8

Elite Insiders | Jimmie Johnson

week 8

First off, congrats to Will for winning his first Expert of the Week posting a 10-4 record last week; nice job. Week 8 is here and we have a lot of good games to pick from. One of the most exciting games will be the Steelers vs. the Bengals. The Steelers are getting their stud quarterback Ben Roethlisberger back from injury and should revitalize one of the most potent offenses in the NFL. The Bengals meanwhile have shocked everyone and are still one of the few remaining undefeated teams. I’ve had a rough time this year picking against the Bengals but I’m going to try again this week. The Steelers star receiver Antonio Brown has had a rough month playing with backup quarterbacks, he will be fed the ball early and often with Big Ben back in the fold. I think the Steelers pull off the upset in a close divisional matchup. The Bengals are playing well but they have to lose eventually right? As for my guarantee pick, I’m rolling with the Seahawks against the Cowboys. The Cowboys started the season off 2-0 and have lost 4 straight dealing with the losses of Tony Romo and Dez Bryant. Bryant is expected to make his return this week but will be limited. Cowboys quarterback Matt Cassel will have a hard time moving the ball against the Legion of Boom. The game will be low scoring, but the Seahawks will eventually pull it out.
