NFL Gameweek 8 Predictions
A quieter week for the NFL 2019 season, but with the International Series still in play and a chance for two of the best Quarterbacks in the league to clash heads, where will the 32 teams stand following week 8 of the centenary season as we edge closer to the playoffs? Our resident tipster makes their call for the teams to keep an eye on this gameweek.

Cincinnati Bengals v Los Angeles Rams
The NFL is still across the pond in London for the International Series, this week with the Tottenham Stadium playing host to the Bengals and the Rams on Sunday, and giving UK fans the chance to witness arguably one of the best players in the NFL, Aaron Donald. The Rams offense had a positive week with their “get-well” game against the Falcons last Sunday, securing a 37-10 win at home in Los Angeles. If Sean McVay is able to build on this success and keep LA playing with tempo while continuing to pass with abandon to three extremely strong receivers, AND a Todd Gurley lead defense can stand their ground solidly against the arguably weak Cincinnati offensive line, the Los Angeles Rams may leave the Bengals standing in the London fog.
San Francisco 49ers v Carolina Panthers
If NFL fans only have time to watch one match this weekend, we suggest you make it this one. This game sees the two strongest NFC teams clash as a rested Panthers, fresh off the back of their bye week, face off against a still undefeated San Francisco 49ers. Despite the strength and freshness Carolina hold, it’s difficult to pick against the 49ers unless their potentially historic defensive line is coming up against a top-quality front or a well-seasoned quarterback strong enough to knock them off their pedestal. However, it will be interesting to see how the Panthers will fair with their back-up QB, Kyle Allen, replacing an injured Cam Newton - will he be able to maintain the strength a Newton-led offence had up against an even stronger 49ers defense.
Greenbay Packers v Kansas City Chiefs
Standing shoulder to shoulder with 49ers v Panthers for our pick for the most exciting game of the week, this clash between the Packers and the Chiefs should be an interesting watch for NFL fans regardless of whether Chiefs Patrick Mahomes plays or not. If Mahomes is played against the Packers on Sunday, it will see possibly the two most talented quarterbacks in the league go head to head as he faces up against Aaron Rogers. If not, it will be curious to see how the Kansas City Chiefs fare against Green Bay with Matt Moore in Mahomes place as QB and observe how much of their success is down to an Andy Reid-led defense and how much is down to the sheer talent of Patrick Mahomes.
