Last week’s NFL action featured major news coming from the Beltway teams, as Robert Griffin III continued to impress, albeit in a losing effort against Eli Manning and the New York Giants. Meanwhile, the Baltimore Ravens headed to its bye week with a sour taste, after getting blown out by the Texans. This week’s slate features a number of interesting matchups, starting with the “Battle of the Birds”, as Matt Ryan and the Falcons take on Mike Vick and the Eagles. The Giants and Cowboys renew their heated rivalry, while the aforementioned RGIII travels to Pittsburgh to take on Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers. And let’s not forget Peyton Manning versus Drew Brees on Sunday night! Over in the “Pick Your Knows” department, I posted arguably my best week ever, coming one pick away from perfection. My only blemish last week was the Bengals, who I thought would find a way to knock out the banged up Steelers at home. Every other game ended in the win column. Here’s hoping that this week’s picks can land somewhere near that mark. Last Week: 12-1 This Season: 59-45 Last Two Seasons: 144-112 (2010) and 131-125 (2011) It’s once again time to “Pick Your Knows” - the only time it’s not a disgusting habit – and here are Week 8’s scheduled games (with spreads as they appear through CBSSports Fantasy).
