Walker's AFC North picks


Posted by ESPN.com’s James Walker

We had our second straight 3-0 sweep in the AFC North last week. The picks are finally heating up so let’s see how long we can keep the undefeated streak going.

Here are the AFC North blog's picks for Week 8:

Cleveland Browns (1-6) at Chicago Bears (3-3), Sunday at 1 p.m.

  • Analysis: Unless the Bears play the same way they did in last week's 35-point thrashing by the Cincinnati Bengals, the Browns will struggle to pull the road upset.

  • Pick: Bears, 21-10

Denver Broncos (6-0) at Baltimore Ravens (3-3), Sunday at 1 p.m.

  • Analysis: Baltimore is both healthy and desperate, which is a scary combination. Plus, I’m probably the last NFL reporter in the country still not on the Broncos' bandwagon.

  • Pick: Ravens, 20-17

Last week's record: 3-0

Overall record: 15-7

Record in my dreams: 22-0
