Week 8 NFL picks, predictions

The game to watch in Week 8, of course, is the Minneapolis Miracle rematch on Sunday night, Saints at Vikings, albeit without the quarterback who threw the miraculous pass.

The team to watch, though, is playing in what otherwise would have been as mundane a late-afternoon game as could be imagined. The Raiders have made themselves a spectacle, and have made a spectacle of themselves, in Year 1 of the Jon Gruden monarchy. The sideshow continued Monday afternoon, their first day back from their bye, and could pick up speed before their home game Sunday afternoon against the Colts.

Heck, the game itself might be a sideshow. How will the Oakland fans respond this time — the ones, remember, being abandoned by the franchise as it bulls its way toward its debut in Las Vegas, and now seeing their beloved team’s roster being stripped for parts? The anticipated revolts have not happened in their first two games in the Coliseum, not even in the prime-time home opener after Khalil Mack was traded. The rest of the home schedule, though? We shall see.
