NFL-Week 8-Matchups

-0-

San Diego-Denver…Trevor Siemian looks razor sharp in his return to the lineup last weekend, and the Broncos do play well at home…Chargers are nicked up at wide receiver, and thin on defense…Philip Rivers and friends will move the ball-the question does Gary Kubiak play ball control to keep Rivers off the field, or does he go into attack mode to go after the Bolts defense?

Green Bay-Atlanta..This is a shootout-Aaron Rodgers-vs-Matt Ryan going against two substandard defenses.

Patriots-Bills…All the Rex Ryan bluster won’t mean much because that is Tom Brady across the line of scrimmage.

Seattle-New Orleans…Drew Brees-vs-Russell Wilson but it’s at the Louisiana Superdome and the Seahawks have lots of issues with the offense around their quarterback.

Eagles-Cowboys…Matchup of rookie QBs-Carson Wentz-vs-Dak Prescott…but real matchup may be Eagles defense going against Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas run game.

Chiefs-Colts..Andrew Luck coming off a (373Y) passing day will need to hit big plays vs KansasCity, but in Indy, on tht field, it’s possible.

Raiders-Tampa Bay…Jameis Winston will be in attack mode against a Raiders defense that gives up tons of yards…can Derek Carr outgun him?

Jets-Browns…Cleveland is (0-7) and has gone thru 4-QBs this year already…Ryan Fitzpatrick goes back to start because of the Geno Smith knee injury..ugly game of the day.

Detroit-Houston…Lions going for their 5th win in a row..Texans need to get QB-Brock Osweiler untracked.

Arizona-Carolina…Panthers come off a bye week with a (1-5) record…Cardinals very disappointed (3-3-1) record…going to be a doozy in Charlotte.

Redskins-Bengals…A very poor start to the season for Cincinnati…Washington is (4-3) and can be dangerous if Kirk Cousins is on target.

Jaguars-Tennessee….Marcus Mariota continues to be up and down at QB for Titans..Jacksonville QB-Blake Bortels ahs regressed.

Vikings-Chicago…Jay Cutler goes back in starting lineup against top defense in NFL..Sam Bradford needs to rally back after horrible road game last weekend.
