Top Week 8 NFL survivor pool picks

By William Hill  ( 


Congratulations! How does it feel to win? Survivor contests throughout the country stayed eerily intact last week. With no major upsets, chances are you are on to Week 8.

The beleaguered Patriots were small favorites over the 49ers, but Jimmy Garropolo’s return to Foxboro was successful. And the Cardinals won a wild one in overtime to give the Seahawks their first loss. But if you got eliminated by picking the Pats or the Seahawks, well, you got what you deserved. Other than those tiny upsets, chalk prevailed.

If you follow the NFL closely, however, you are fully on guard, knowing a week full of predictability is often followed by a slate chalked with chaos and upsets. Sunday is Nov. 1. Will the day after Halloween be scary for survivor players?  

Here are my survivor pool picks for Week 8:


Games to consider
