Oakland Raiders (2-4) @ Baltimore Ravens (3-3)
Time: 1:00pm EST
Spread: Baltimore - 7
Over/Under: 36
Preview: The Oakland Raiders feel they have new life on the season. After a nice overtime win on Sunday of the Jets; the Raiders are now 2-4 on the season. After Baltimore the Raiders will host Atlanta and Carolina, so the Raiders hope to sneak one on the road before taking their chances back home. The Raiders are being outscored on the year 148-97 on the season. Currently, Oakland is in third place, just a game and half behind Denver in the AFC West. The Raiders are 1-2 thus far at home. For Baltimore, after two straight wins to start the season they dropped three straight, only to follow up with a win on Sunday. The win Sunday was a 27-13 win at Miami. After the Raiders, Baltimore will travel for three straight weeks; at Cleveland, Houston and NY Giants. The Ravens have struggled to score on the year scoring just 105 points, while yielding 100. The Ravens are 2-1 at home in 2008. Baltimore stands two games behind Pittsburgh in the AFC North.

Arizona Cardinals (4-2) @ Carolina Panthers (5-2)
Time: 1:00pm EST
Spread: Carolina – 4
Over/Under: 43.5
Preview: Who would have thought that the Arizona Cardinals would be traveling to Carolina for one of the biggest games in week eight? The Cardinals, coming off their bye week are 4-2 overall, winners of two straight, and leaders of the NFC West. The Cardinals have scored 177 points, and allowed 144 on the season. Arizona leads St. Louis by two games in the division. Kurt Warner has thrown for 12 touchdowns on the season, and continues to shine, as his age continues to increase. Arizona has wins over San Francisco, Miami, Buffalo and Dallas, while their losses were at Washington and at the Jets. Arizona will begin their portion of the schedule that seems them playing three of four games on the road. For Carolina, a 5-2 start is astonishing for a team that was picked by many towards the bottom of the NFC South. The Panthers sit atop the NFC South, tied with Tampa Bay and ahead Atlanta and New Orleans. The Panthers have outscored opponents 147-104 on the season. The Panthers, after hosting the Cardinals will take their bye in week 9, before starting three of four games on the road.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-2) @ Dallas Cowboys (4-3)
Time: 1:00pm EST
Spread: Dallas - 2
Over/Under: 40.5
Preview: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are off to a 5-2 start, and in a two way tie with the Carolina Panthers in the NFC South. The Bucs, being led by quarterback Jeff Garcia are getting quality play, after Brian Griese went down with an injury. Earnest Graham and Warrick Dunn have been a dynamite two headed monster for Tampa Bay, while Antonio Bryant, and Ike Hilliard have been a quality receiving duo. Tampa Bay is 4-0 at home, and 1-2 on the road. They will have to take the road on Sunday and take on the struggling Dallas Cowboys. With quarterback Tony Romo out with an injured thumb, and the loss of Pacman Jones, and running back Felix Jones banged up; plus two straight losses to Arizona, and St. Louis; the Cowboys are struggling. The Cowboys are having difficulties stopping teams, as they have given up 30 and 34 points in their last two games. Dallas sits in third place behind Washington and the NY Giants in the NFC East. Romo is out until November with his injury.

Washington Redskins (5-2) @ Detroit Lions (0-6)
Time: 1:00pm EST
Spread: Washington – 7.5
Over/Under: 42
Preview: The Redskins have been a bit of a mystery through seven games in eight weeks. After an opening loss to the Giants in which the ‘Skins looked lifeless, they were able to rattle off four straight wins, over teams such as Dallas, Philadelphia, New Orleans and Arizona. Then a loss to St. Louis was followed by a win over a Browns team coming in red hot. The Redskins need to show some consistency, and will surely be expected to come away with a win on Sunday at Detroit. Washington is just a half game behind the Giants in the NFC East. On the year, Washington has scored 140 points, and allowed 128. Detroit has been brutal in 2008. Losses to Atlanta, Green Bay, San Francisco, Chicago, Minnesota and Houston have all been ugly. After the Redskins leave town the Lions will face the Bears, Jaguars and Panthers in the next three weeks. The Lions are in last place in the NFC North, and one of just two NFL teams that have yet to win. In two home games for Detroit this season, they have averaged allowing 41 points per game.

Buffalo Bills (5-1) @ Miami Dolphins (2-4)
Time: 1:00pm EST
Spread: Buffalo - 1
Over/Under: 42
Preview: The Buffalo Bills made themselves, and their fans get over a little bit of their stomach anxiety on Sunday. Coming away with a 23-14 home win over San Diego, the bye week, and 41-17 loss at Arizona was finally cleared from their minds. Now Buffalo sits at one game up in the AFC East. The Bills next three games come against divisional opponents in Miami, Jets, and Patriots. The Bills have scored 149 points, and allowed 118 on the year. In three road games this season, Buffalo is 2-1. For Miami, after two huge wins over New England and San Diego, week seven was clearly a disappointment. Baltimore 27-13 knocked around the Dolphins. In the loss, the Dolphins allowed 27 points to a Ravens team that was having extreme difficulties scoring. Miami sits three games behind Buffalo in the AFC East, with New England and the Jets sandwiched in between.

St. Louis Rams (2-4) New England Patriots (4-2)
Time: 1:00pm EST
Spread: New England – 7
Over/Under: 43.5
Preview: The St. Louis Rams will definitely invade Gillette Stadium on Sunday with a little big of a swagger. After looking horrendous in the first four games of the year, interim coach Jim Haslett has swung the fortunes and led the Rams to two straight wins; over Washington and Dallas. Steven Jackson is getting the ball more, and the Rams defense has clamped it down. St. Louis is still being outscored by an average of 13.6 points per game. The Rams are 1-2 in road games this season. For New England, Monday night may have been just what the doctor ordered for the slumping Patriots. The world has realized this year’s team is not the 2007 version of the Patriots. Matt Cassell has filled in for Tom Brady and completed 110 of 166 passes for 1095 yards and six touchdowns. The Patriots are one game behind Buffalo in the AFC East, at 4-2, Bills at 5-1. The Patriots are now without stud defensive player Rodney Harrison, and also running back Laurence Maroney.

In the Chargers 7 games they have scored 192 points and yielding 162. The Chargers sit a game behind Denver in the AFC West at 3-4, while Denver is 4-3. Phillip Rivers has thrown for 16 touchdowns in seven games. LaDainian Tomlinson has struggled a bit as running back for San Diego at times. For New Orleans, the Saints will be without the services of running back Reggie Bush. Bush appears to be out for 2-4 weeks with a leg injury. The Saints are coming off a 30-7 loss at Carolina. The Saints have defeated Tampa Bay, San Francisco, and Oakland, while falling to Washington, Denver, Minnesota, and Carolina. In seven games the Saints have scored 179 and allowed 163.

The lone win for Kansas City came in week four over Denver. The Chiefs are 2.5 games behind Denver for the lead in the AFC West. Kansas City has scored just 75 points on the year. After leaving New York, the Chiefs will host Tampa Bay, travel to San Diego, and then host New Orleans.

A year after being the laughing stock of the league, the Falcons are scoring points, and getting solid defensive play. Atlanta has scored 139 points and allowed 127.

For Houston, after winning two straight they feel they have started to hit their stride.
