Week 8 bold predictions: Deshaun Watson, Tyreek Hill torch top defenses


Throughout the 2017 season, NFL Network analysts will provide one bold prediction heading into each weekend's games. Here are their thoughts on Week 8:

Watson continues to take the league by storm, upending the 'Hawks in Seattle
Deshaun Watson silences the 12s at CenturyLink Field. The rookie quarterback finishes with four total touchdowns, guiding the Texans to 4-3.
Trubisky enjoys breakout game in NOLA
One of these days, I'm going to hit on this prediction of Mitchell Trubisky, who's shown promise since getting his first start Week 5. The Bears rookie QB throws for more than 300 yards and has three TDs vs. the Saints.
Chiefs playmaker Hill earns hat trick against divisional foe
Tyreek Hill takes advantage of a struggling Broncos defense. He goes off for a rushing touchdown, receiving touchdown AND return touchdown in a Chiefs win.
Brady isn't the only veteran QB who's still got it
I'm gonna keep this one real simple: The Chargers beat New England. Hail Philip Rivers!
Playoff spot on the line in the Big Easy
The winner of Bears- Saints will make the playoffs. I like New Orleans, but the Bears are on a roll. And they match up with the Saints pretty well. I also think Drew Brees will reach 6,000 career completions in this game (he needs 12) to become the fastest quarterback to reach that mark in NFL history.
