NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Denver Broncos Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Greetings, Raider Nation! Week 8 will be upon us today, and with it comes a new set of predictions from the staff and the community. Here are the spreads for this week:

Dolphins at Texans -7.5
Eagles -3.5 at Jaguars
Seahawks at Lions -3
Washington -1 at Giants
Broncos at Chiefs -10
Ravens -2 at Panthers
Browns at Steelers -8
Jets at Bears -7
Buccaneers at Bengals -4.5
Colts -3 at Raiders
Packers at Rams -9
49ers at Cardinals pick ‘em
Saints at Vikings pick ‘em
Patriots -14 at Bills

As for the S&BP staff selections, we have a new leader in the clubhouse this week as the wise and prescient Ryan Lipton has taken over first place from reigning champ Levi Damien. Ryan got ten spread picks correct in Week 7, so bully for him. Here are the staff picks this week. As always, my Raiders pick will be revealed on Friday morning in the Foretelling.
