Prediction time: Week 8


Yes, it’s that time again on Thursday when I’m asking for your predictions.

Starting now, post your predicted scores for each of the following games involving AFC North teams:

Hopefully, you remember the drill. I will put my predictions up against our blog readers.

How will I select the reader? At the top of your submission, put the total points scored in the Patriots-Steelers game, which happens to be the one I will be covering Sunday. The first reader to match my total for that game will have his or her scores posted with mine Friday on the blog.

To recap last week, I was 2-1 on my predictions while our readers (AndDoubleYoi and StrengthOfVictory) went a combined 4-2. So, overall, I have a 12-5 record (.705) and the readers are 11-9 (.550).

Also, congrats to kintnerb, whose picks are automatically qualified into the Friday Forecast. Kintnerb (predicted 21 points) was the closest to the total number of points for last Monday's Ravens-Jaguars game (19).
