Sando's best guesses: Week 8 predictions

By Mike Sando

I'm tempted, so tempted, to pick the Seattle Seahawks and/or St. Louis Rams to win away from home in Week 8.

Doing so would stand as more of a protest against conventional wisdom than as a fully accurate portrayal of expectations.

Both teams have to like their chances. Every team in the division does, based on defensive capabilities. Not even an Arizona Cardinals upset of the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night would shock the NFC West, where home teams are unbeaten in division play.

But after going 3-0 on predictions last week, I've decided against over-thinking things.

My guesses for Week 8 outcomes involving NFC West teams: Note: We've also got the "You called it" competition going, plus the Pigskin Pick'em group.
