Picking NFL's Week 8 winners

  • By NFL.com

It doesn't seem right that a man can bang out a 10-3 record in his weekly NFL picks and still be saddled with the intro post reserved for the last-place finisher, but this is the reality in which I operate.

This was a big week for Around The League prognosticators. We went 55-10 overall, an .846 winning percentage that could lead a less-trusting person to believe we swiped Biff Tannen's sports almanac.

Which we did not ... because "Back to the Future Part II" was just a movie. That said, hopefully whoever writes the Week 9 intro can delve into the feasibility of time travel. I just know it won't be me.

On to the picks ...
