NFL WEEK 8 2019

UPDATE- Something we rarely do, changing our pick. But over 100K sims of the game tonight yields no real pick here. So it's a pass, but if you have to bet, there is a slight bias to the Steelers covering. 

Our survivor pool marches on, like the walking dead, avoiding zombies which are otherwise known as favorites who tank and take you out. 
Messrs.. Faber. Michaels, Sautter and Tischler are safe for another week, locking in the Vikes this Thursday night past. DOM likes the Rams today, while our last remaining female player, in the ineffable Lucy Lew puts her survivor marbles on the Texans. As always we await the pick of Mr. Grieco who is probably being lobbied for some bill or other. 

Travel has forced us to post only our 4pm and later picks for this week. 
WINNER
The Pack at KC is the game of the week. Despite rumors of a quick return for mega-QB Patrick Mahomes, we like the Pack, on the road, against an increasingly beatable KC team. Green Bay -4.5.

WINNER 
Carolina at San Fran poses the question of if the 49er's are for real. It's hard to say, but we like the home team miners to strike gold and win by more than 5.5.

AND WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER-- 3-0 FOR THE DAY NATURALLY  The Cleveland Browns, who are showing why the appellation "The Mistake by the Lake" is not a misnomer for a team that just cannot shoot straight, run well, or throw at all. The are in New England to play a team that is fielding a historically dominant defense that statistically is rivaling the 76 Steelers and 85 Bears for the best defense ever. Even though they cheat, they can beat the Brownies by more than 13. 

Last week we told you to bet the farm and rent money on the Fins to cover and they did, sending two readers who risked their meager state salaries on our pick, to NYC for the Thanksgiving weekend. 
This week the Dolphins are on MNF, because the nation needs to see what 0-6 and an utter failure looks like. They take on a struggling Pittsburgh team that has not found its footing or a reliable offense, although the defense is starting to gel. Take all of your winnings and risk it on a game of pitch and toss and close your eyes and take the Fins to cover again. Miami +14.5

First Ward. Who's next? Snyder, Morphonios, Ferrer, Shenberg, Colby, Klein, Solomon, Carney, or Goodhart?
All the top judges are leaving for Mr & Mrs Green.
