We're almost halfway through the NFL regular season - Find out who to back in Week 8
Raiders @ Bills - Sunday 17:00 - Sky Sports Arena
The Buffalo Bills saw off the challenge of the Tampa Bay Bucs at Ralph Wilson Stadium last weekend and will look to win back-to-back home games to put themselves in a position to finally end their Playoff hoodoo. Standing in their way will be a Raiders team that has blown hot and cold over the course of the season but certainly lit up their home stadium with their last-second victory against the Chiefs. Derek Carr earned honours for his 417 yard performance but it may be harder to force a repeat against a defence that made three turnovers against the Bucs. Combined with the assumption that the Raiders defence won't be as forgiving as Tampa Bay's for the Buffalo offence, you're looking at a game that's heading under the points spread.
Cowboys @ Redskins - Sunday 20:25 - Sky Sports Arena
It's a real pick 'em contest in Washington as Zeke, Dak and co. come to town. The Cowboys haven't reached the heights of last season yet and sitting at .500, you feel that a big game is needed from their big hitters ti get their season on track. The Redskins sit on the same number and have yet to blow any team away, with their last win a real scrape against a hapless 49ers team. Dallas will win if they play at their best and although it's two 3-3 sides against each other, it's somewhat surprising to see Dallas as a very marginal favourite. Take the price.
Steelers @ Lions - Monday 00:30 - Sky Sports Arena
The Steelers are coming into their own and Ben Roethlisberger has shaken off mobility issues and a horrendous game against the Jags in week 5 to steer the Black and Yellows to a 5-2 record and first place in the AFC North. Going to Ford Field is a much tougher prospect than in seasons gone by and Matt Stafford knows that a win against their divisional rivals is paramount and the road back from a potential 3-4 record is tough. It will be interesting to see if Roethlisberger targets the fantastically named JuJu Smith-Schuster more after his first touchdown last week (and the most creative touchdown celebration you've ever seen). Either way, the Steelers express should rumble on: back them on the handicap.
