2013 NFL Picks Week 8

I just cannot get a good week picking games! Basically fared as well as flipping a coin last week, finishing 8-7. My percent dropped another point back to 57%, so let's look at those 7 losses:

St. Louis was unable to upset Carolina on the road, but that was a toss-up pick for me and the injury to Sam Bradford played a part in the loss. Chicago was also hurt by the loss of their QB Jay Cutler, and were unable to outgun the Redskins, somehow. New England is becoming frustrating to pick, as last week they upset New Orleans but then this week are upset by the fucking JETS. Miami started the season off strong, but has been unable to win lately including last week at home vs. Buffalo. Detroit was also unable to win at home, losing a toss-up match against Cincinnati. Pittsburgh has been playing much better as of late, and were able to hold off Baltimore at home. And so that leaves us with another huge upset, as Peyton Manning was unable to roll into Indianapolis for a Denver win. 1-3 in upset picks for Week 7; I should probably just pick all the favorites! Week 8, here we come. Hopefully it's an easy week like it appears to be:
