Walker's AFC North picks
By James Walker
The AFC North blog had a great Week 7 picking division games. Only the Cleveland Browns' upset of the defending champs prevented an otherwise flawless record.
In an effort to keep the momentum going, we have two tough games to pick this weekend. Here are the AFC North blog's selections for Week 8 (all times are ET):
Pittsburgh Steelers (5-1) at New Orleans Saints (4-3), Sunday at 8:20 p.m.
Skinny: This is a great matchup of the past two Super Bowl champions. Coming off an embarrassing loss to Cleveland, the Saints should bounce back strong. But timely defense and enough plays by Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be the difference.
Pick: Steelers, 27-24
Miami Dolphins (3-3) at Cincinnati Bengals (2-4), Sunday at 1 p.m.
Skinny: As sloppy as the Bengals have played, this is a must-win game at home. Desperate teams with talent make for good picks.
Pick: Bengals, 23-20
Last week: 3-1
