2010 NFL Survivor Pool Pick Week 8

Another 40% of my remaining pool was eliminated last week primarily due to the Browns win over the Saints.  The Ravens barely came through for us.

Tennessee, Green Bay, New England, New Orleans, Indianapolis, NY Giants and Baltimore are of the board.

Week 8 is going to be another difficult week.  I was leaning toward Dallas before the injury to Romo. Kitna steps in for a Dallas team that has to win this one.  
Another option is Kansas City at home against the win less Bills.  I suspect that a lot of people will go with the Chiefs this week.  This one scares me.

My J-E-T-S are coming off a bye week and are at home against the injury plagued Packers.  The Jets are a good play but I want to hold onto them for a better matchup.

Tough week

KC does seem like a mega trap. Their D isn't all that and their O is suspect. I also have Fitzpatrick going this week in fantasy league and Dwayne Bowe so I'm hoping for a shootout. Denver is a little tempting but the flight to London could have adverse effects and who knows how Troy Smith will do? I also kinda like the Raiders this week.

I'm going with my gut and that is the Cowboys. Too many weapons to lose to the Jags and they need a win.

PS - For any gamblers out there, I love a few road dogs this week - Houston +5.5, Minnesota +5.5, and Denver +1.

HORRIBLE. Only team I thought of taking that won was the Raiders. Wish I did that...

Good move Dwight. I would give a slight advantage to Minnesota. Don't like Buffalo or Houston and think TB can stick with Atlanta. Good luck

No way Cleveland beats the Pats, especially with Mangina at the helm. I'm predicting a beatdown.

I think Minnesota is probably your best bet, Dwight. However, AZ has a surprisingly good D this year. Hopefully Minny has finally figured out that the way to win games is to hand the ball to AP and not have Favre heave it all over the joint.
