DLT Deadlocks - NFL Picks Week 8 2016

New, comments

DLT's season of woe continues...

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Welp, another horrific week of picking games for me. It is what it is. This definitely not been my year. But, hey, like the Niners, we just keep on keeping on, hoping it gets better.

Friendly advice though, don't bet the house on my picks (unless you're going opposite).

I am following the lead of other picking sites and throwing out the result of the Arizona-Seattle Dungyball special. Frankly, I don't think we should because we're in the prediction business and no one predicted a tie. Still, just to keep things simple I'll follow their logic.

Last Week: 7-7 50% Upset Specials: 1-2 33%

Season: 58-48 54% Upset Specials: 7-9 43%

Byes: Rams, Dolphins, Giants, Steelers, 49ers, Ravens

Thursday Night

Titans 23, Jaguars 13 - This will be harder to watch than what Negan did in the Walking Dead

Sunday

Upset Special #1 - Washington NFL Franchise 23, Bengals 13 - The Bengals have been a ghost of themselves of late.

Chiefs 24, Colts 17 - Kansas City gets another patsy for a treat.

Upset Special #2 - Raiders 27, Bucs 23 - The Raiders are 4-0 on the road, Tampa is 0-2 at home. For Raiders fans, its Halloween every week.

Seahawks 30, Saints 23 - Nothing is scarier than the Saints defense...okay, clowns. But they all play for the Saints defense.

Upset Special #3 - Lions 23, Texans 20 - Houston fans are wondering if they got a trick in Brock.

Jets 24, Browns 23 - The Browns will win a game at some point - is this the week? Jets are scared to find out.

Patriots 23, Bills 20 - Rex Ryan's Bogeyman is Bill Bellicheat.

Cardinals 23, Panthers 13 - Don't look now, Carolina but the easy part of your schedule is over. BOO!

Broncos 27, Chargers 20 - Huge win by San Diego on the road last week. Unfortunately for them, they go to the Bronco's house this week and they're serving organic treats.

Upset Special #4 - Packers 24, Falcons 20 - Atlanta continues their frightening collapse.

Sunday Night

Cowboys 24, Eagles 20 - Scariest proposition for Dallas fans? The return of Romo!

Monday Night

Vikings 30, Bears 13 - The scariest trick for all of us - seeing the Bears on National TV...AGAIN.

Happy Halloween everyone. Be safe out there!
