      Here's my results for week 7
      W-L-T record: 5-3
      Season record: 27-19-2

      Robalini's Commentary: Last week I said I had a 14-8 three week run: in fact, it was 13-7. Now I have an 18-10 four-week run, which feels pretty good. Little bummed I started 4-0 last week but went 1-3 in the later games. But a winning record is a winning record...

      Lets hear it for Tony LaRussa & the St. Louis Cardinals for winning the World Series over GW Bush's Texas Rangers!!!

      Anyway, here's my picks for Week 8:

      Tennessee Titans (-8 1/2) Over Indianappolis Colts

      The Titans have played surprisingly well this season, and should take the hapless Colts rather easily at home...

      Houston Texans (-9 1/2) Over Jacksonville Jaguars

      My love affair with the Texans continues with Houston dumping on the Jags at home...

      Carolina Panthers (-3) Over Minnesota Vikings

      I'll repeat: I'm sold on Cam Newton...

      New York Giants (-9 1/2) Over Miami Dolphins

      The Fins are confused, while the Giants look ready to get their act together at home...

      Buffalo Bills (-6) Over Washington Redskins

      With an excited Toronto crowd behind the Bills, they should knock out the Skins pretty easily...

      Detroit Lions (-3) Over Denver Broncos

      Last week I praised Tim Tebow, but he can only do so much. The Lions are looking for revenge after losing two in a row: they've found the perfect opponent in the Broncos...

      Seattle Seahawks (+3) Over Cincinnati Bengals

      The Seahawks have underplayed this year while the Bengals have overplayed. This should be corrected this week, especially with Seattle's incredible home field advantage...

      San Diego Chargers (-3 1/2) Over Kansas City Chiefs

      I said that San Diego has underplayed this season last season despite their record, but even a second-rate Charger team can beat the Chiefs...

        Here's my results for week 8
        W-L-T record: 4-3
        Season record: 28-30

        Arizona Cardinals (+6 1/2) over Minnesota Vikings

        The Cards haven't looked too good the last two games, but they should be able to stay within a TD of the Vikings.

        Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+6 1/2) over Minnesota Vikings

        The Bucs are a better team than given credit for, and they should at least lose close to the Vikings.

        Indianapolis Colts (+3 1/2) over Tennessee Titans

        Andrew Luck may not be RGIII, but he still is leading the Colts well, and I expect them either to win or stay within a field goal against the Titans.

        San Diego Chargers (-3) over Cleveland Browns

        The Charger sure looked bad in the second half against the Broncos. Fortunately, they have a rebound game against the Browns.

        Philadelphia Eagles (-2 1/2) over Atlanta Falcons

        Eventually, being undefeated brings a monkey on a team's back. The Falcons have that monkey on the road against Philly.

        Carolina Panthers (+8) over Chicago Bears

        Despite their 1-5 record, the Panthers have either won or lost by less than a TD in 5 of 6 games. Meanwhile, rhe Bears offense looked very weak against the Lions after a week rest. This smells like a close, low-scoring affair.

        New Orleans Saints (+6) over Denver Broncos

        No respect! The Saints are +6 against the Broncos? Yes, the Saints started slow and their defense still sucks, but even on the road in Denver against Peyton Manning, you don't hand Drew Brees that many points. Expect a high-scoring affair with a close finish.
