Five things we learned from the Patriots 27-17 win over the Dolphins in Week 8
POORE'S PICKS: Week Nine
Cincinnati 2 1/2 @ MIAMI
The Bengals are playing well and are becoming contenders in the AFC.
CAROLINA 7 1/2 Atlanta
Who would have thought that the Panthers are the second best team in the NFC South?
DALLAS 10 1/2 Minnesota
A crushing loss for the Cowboys last week, but it won't happen here.
New Orleans 5 1/2 @ NEW YORK JETS
The Saints are becoming the best team in the NFC.
Tennessee 3 @ ST. LOUIS
The Titans will be a tough out as the year progresses.
Kansas City 3 @ BUFFALO
The Chiefs aren't winning pretty, but undefeated is undefeated.
WASHINGTON 1 1/2 San Diego
The Redskins will pull this one out at home late.
SEATTLE 16 1/2 Tampa Bay
This is basically a second bye week for the Seahawks.
Baltimore 2 1/2 @ CLEVELAND
Both teams have been very inconsistent this season.
NEW ENGLAND 6 1/2 Pittsburgh
The Steelers sometimes give the Patriots fits, but New England will prevail.
Indianapolis 2 1/2 @ HOUSTON
The Texans season is virtually over.
Game of the Week
GREEN BAY 11 Chicago
Without Jay Cutler, this game doesn't seem to have quite the prestige of other Green Bay-Chicago matchups. With the lack of a marquee matchup this week, this is the best matchup of the week.
Stinker of the Week
OAKLAND 1 Philadelphia
Not sure too many are going to be watching this one.
Record For Week Eight: 7-6 (11-2 without the spread)
Record Through Week Eight: 55-61-4 (79-41 without the spread)
