The National Football League regular season continues this week with 15 games heading into Week 8. The Baltimore Ravens and Las Vegas Raiders are the only two teams with a bye week this week, Lamar Jackson and Derek Carr fantasy owners don’t forget to sit them.
Week 8 will kick off with a Thursday Night Football matchup between 2 of the best teams in the National Football Conference. Aaron Rodgers and the NFC North division-leading 6-1 Green Bay Packers will head out to the desert to take on Kyler Murray and the only undefeated team left in the NFL, the 7-0 Arizona Cardinals. The Packers are on a 6-game win streak and their only loss was on the road in Week 1. This is expected to be reigning NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers’ last season in Green Bay but Thursday night’s game is the perfect opportunity for Kyler Murray to prove to the world that he’s the future of the league and make his case for 2021 NFL MVP.
NFC action continues on Sunday Night Football when Dak Prescott and the 5-1 Dallas Cowboys travel up north to take on Kirk Cousins and the 3-3 Minnesota Vikings. The Cowboys are at the top of the NFC East and Prescott has returned to form after suffering a broken ankle last season. The Vikings have had a disappointing season so far, WR Justin Jefferson is still one of the most dominant players in the league but the team has been on the losing end of 3 one-score games. Minnesota’s head coach Mike Zimmer may be on the hot seat if he cannot turn the Vikings ship around, but a big win on Sunday would make a statement.
The 2-5 New York Football Giants will kick off the month of November when they travel to Arrowhead Stadium to take on Patrick Mahomes and the 3-4 Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs are the talk of the league as they have had an underwhelming season. Mahomes has continued to turn the ball over and leads the league with 9 INTS (tied with Jets QB Zack Wilson). On top of Mahomes’ turnover troubles, Kansas City’s defense is non-existent. Giants QB Daniel Jones has been turnover-prone his whole career, so Monday night’s game may be the perfect time for KC to get back on track.

The Ravens entered the season with major injuries to their running backs, and the Panthers have lost 4-straight without All-Pro Christian McCaffrey. It’s Halloween week, so expect some tricks and some treats as October closes out and November begins. Below, are our Week 8 predictions.
