Week 8 NFL Picks; Cardinals host Davante Adams-less Packers on TNF

The Chiefs scored 3 points in Week 7, certainly something I never thought I would type. Falling to 3-4, Kansas City has been the most disappointing team in the NFL. Good thing they play the Giants on MNF, who stink. Although, New York just beat down the Panthers, who may also stink again. Cincinnati throttled the Ravens and look like the team to beat in the AFC North (for now). The Lions are still winless and the Jets lost Zach Wilson to an injury. Looking ahead to Week 8, in what was supposed to be a marquee Thursday Night game, now has lost it's luster. Davante Adams (Covid-19), Allen Lazard (close contact), and JJ Watt (season ending injury) have all been ruled out for the Packers-Cardinals matchup. Arizona will look to remain unbeaten tonight as Aaron Rodgers will lead an offense missing their top weapon. All signs are pointing to Baker Mayfield getting the start against Pittsburgh on Sunday in Cleveland. Can the Lions win a football game against the struggling Eagles? Minnesota hosts Dallas on SNF in what could be a intriguing game. Tampa Bay travels to New Orleans to face their former QB in Jameis Winston. Can anyone stop the Bucs offense? Other than that, it's not a great week of matchups, but still a lot of possibilities to come!
