2014 NFL Picks Week 8

Compared to last week, this week was a let down at 11-4. Realistically I'm not going to go 13-1-1 every week, so 11-4 is pretty good if you ask me. After finishing 5-8 week 4, I have at least 11 correct picks in each of the last 3 weeks with a 35-9-1 record. That's good for 78%, and has helped in raising my overall percentage to 67%. I had no upset picks last week, but did correctly choose the winner (barely) for my pick of the week. I remain at an even 9-9 in upset picks and improve to 6-1 for picks of the week. Let's look at where I went wrong before picking Week 8's games.

I can't figure Cleveland out this year, as they look good at times but then lose to (previously) winless Jacksonville. Even if I had picked upsets I would not have picked Jacksonville, nor would I have picked St. Louis to beat Seattle. I highly doubt anybody had that game correctly picked. Chicago can't seem to win at home, and fell flat against Miami. Finally, Kansas City upset San Diego on the road, but that wasn't a huge surprise in my opinion.
