2014 NFL Picks: Split Decision on Packers-Saints in APC's Week 8 Picks

New, comments

This week, we're split on the result of the Packers' game in our weekly picks

Jonathan Daniel

This week, the Green Bay Packers travel to New Orleans on Sunday Night to play the Saints in a matchup of high-powered NFC offenses. Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees will make for one of the more compelling quarterback competitions of the year, and in their three games head-to-head, neither team has scored fewer than 27 points.

This week, we're split a bit on the result of the game, and as such we give a slight advantage to New Orleans. After all, they are a notoriously good home team despite their struggles on the road, they have some injured players back, and their crowd will be pumped up.

Personally, I trust the Packers' defense more than the Saints' to come up with a timely turnover, which is the reason for my picking Green Bay this week. A few of my compatriots here at APC apparently disagree, though, as is their prerogative.

Here is the full list of picks. Let us know what you think in the comments.

We'll have Josh's picks as well as soon as possible.

It was another solid week in week seven for APC's prognosticators, as everyone finished at 9-6 or better on the week. But once again, Brendan picked up a game on everyone, as he led the way at 11-4.
