We’re now at the halfway point of the 2016 NFL season and I find myself up here in Patriots country for Week 8 of the season.
The winner of Week 7 came down to the results of the Monday night game between the Texans and the Broncos, and because my local NFL ballers lost 24-9 to Mike’s local NFL ballers, my lead is now down to 4 games at the halfway point of the season as I try to repeat as TransGriot NFL prognostication champion.
My hometown ballers also have a short week because of the Monday night game, but they are playing at NRG. There’s also another international game on the schedule as the Redskins and Bengals bump heads at London’s Wembley Stadium.
Just wanted to let y’all know that Eli thanks you TransGriot readers for your prayers and warm thoughts as he works hard to conquer cancer. I also promised you last week I’d reveal what Eli’s preseason Super Bowl pick was:
Eli picked Seattle and New England. with the team hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in Houston being the Patriots.
So lets get to this week’s NFL games. Six teams, the Ravens, Rams, Dolphins, Steelers, 49ers and Giants are on their bye week, so only 13 games to pick.
Y’all know how I do this. My picks will be in bold print, with the home team in CAPS. Mike’s picks you can view here.
