It’s week 8 of the NFL season is upon with many divisional match-ups that should help shape the playoff picture. The AFC playoff picture is still a murky one with a lot of teams hovering just 1-2 games above .500 while the NFC is a lot more cut and dry.

Can Rex Ryan and the Buffalo Bills sweep the New England Patriots in what should be a big game as the Bills do not want to fall to 4-4? Rex Ryan will look to throw everything at Tom Brady in hope that his team can improve to 5-3. The Atlanta Falcons will look to avoid another collapse after a great start to the NFL season for the second consecutive season as they welcome Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers to the Dome. Can Dan Quinn keep his Falcons atop of the NFC South or will the Packers knock them off allowing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to potentially take over the NFC South?

Kirk Cousins will look to get the Washington Redskins back on track after their four-game winning streak was snapped last week as they travel to London to take on Andy Dalton and the Bengals in a game that could let us know a lot about both teams. The Kansas City Chiefs will travel to Indy to take on Andrew Luck and a Colts team that just seems to be dragging along so far this season. Derek Carr will help look to continue the Oakland Raiders great start to this NFL season as they play Jameis Winston and his Tampa Bay Buccaneers who are winners of two-straight after dropping three-straight.

The already banged-up Russell Wilson will look to bounce back this week against a struggling Saints defense while Drew Brees will look to rise to the challenge against an ultra-tough Seahawks defense. The Denver Broncos will have revenge on their minds while Philip Rivers will have motivation on his as he tries to once again one up arguably the best defense in the NFL.  It’s that time of the NFL season for teams to take it up a notch but most importantly it’s time for some football.
