Week 8 NFL Lines Favoring Eagles Over Falcons, Expect Bears to Maul Panthers

Week 8 NFL Lines Favoring Eagles Over Falcons, Expect Bears to Maul PanthersUpon the conclusion of Week 8, a handful of teams will be halfway done with their schedules. Pretty crazy, right?

Time does fly when you're doing nothing but watching football all fall, and as the clock ticks on the season, games get more and more important each week. This week, there is plenty of jockeying to be done in each division. 

Let's get to this week's line from Bovada.lv.

Tampa Bay at Minnesota (-7)

The Vikings have a brutal stretch ahead following this primetime matchup against the Bucs. 

New England (-7) versus St. Louis

The Patriots and Rams meet in London, where the Patriots rolled over Tampa Bay 35-7 in 2009.

Indianapolis at Tennessee (-3.5)

Matt Hasselbeck and the Titans are favored by more than a field goal after winning late last week in Buffalo.

Jacksonville at Green Bay*

The Packers rolled again last week in St. Louis, and they return home as big favorites against a banged-up Jags squad.
* — No line listed yet.

San Diego (-3) at Cleveland

The Chargers are coming off of a bye, but they're heading into a hostile environment as a West Coast team playing the early game.

Atlanta at Philadelphia (-3)

The Eagles turn the ball over way too much, but they're still home favorites against the league's lone remaining unbeaten. 

Seattle at Detroit (-1)

The Lions were anemic offensively against the stingy Bears defense on Monday night, and they've got another difficult task against the Seahawks this weekend; Detroit is still favored, though.

Miami at NY Jets (-1)

The Jets gave the Patriots all they could handle last week, but couldn't make a play when they needed it. 

Carolina at Chicago (-9)

The Bears are getting hotter, and the Panthers look to be going backward, which would explain this nine-point line. 

Washington at Pittsburgh (-4.5)

This is a classic offense-defense matchup, with the Redskins' (fifth in offensive yards) taking on the Steelers who have given up the second-fewest yards this season.

Oakland at Kansas City (-1)

The AFC West. Meh.

NY Giants (-2) at Dallas

The Giants can really gain some separation in the NFC East by earning a split of this season series with the Cowboys.

New Orleans at Denver*

Expect points — a lot of them.
* — No line listed yet.

San Francisco (-7) at Arizona

Expect offensive ineptitude — a lot of it.
