2016 NFL Picks Week 8

I just cannot gain any traction this year! I finished Week 7 with 7 wins, 7 losses, and 1 tie. I don't count ties as wins or losses, so think of it as a lost game. That being said, I stay around 52% on the year. My PotW, Atlanta, lost at home (in OT) to San Diego; I'm now 5-2. I didn't fare any better with my upset picks, as I was 1 for 4 (Oakland over Jacksonville) to drop me to 9-13 for the season. Oof.

Minnesota, much to my approval, lost to Philadelphia. Washington was unable to upset Detroit. Buffalo, despite being road favorites, lost to Miami. Tennessee couldn't get a home win against Indianapolis. Baltimore couldn't pull of an upset at the New York Jets. As mentioned earlier Atlanta could not get the home win vs San Diego. Finally, I don't know why I bothered to pick San Francisco with a home upset against Tampa Bay. On to a short Week 8, with only 13 games due to byes:
