The Best Games of NFL Week 8 Look to be Tonight and Sunday Night
The once lowly Arizona Cardinals can easily be considered the best team in the NFL right now. Their offense is almost unstoppable. Their defense is almost a brick wall. The Cardinals are running on all cylinders. They will have their first real test tonight as they host the hot Green Bay Packers.
Last week I wrote how it was crazy to think that the Arizona Cardinals could be undefeated. Well, here they are, at 7-0 leading the NFC West, which had been dominated by the Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams the last few seasons. Tonight, they host the very hot Green Bay Packers. The Packers will be without a key piece of their offense with Davante Adams out with COVID along with their defensive coordinator, Joe Berry. As well as the Packers have been playing, I think the Cardinals have been playing better. Cardinals win tonight 42-24.
The Cowboys are back this week after their bye. Dak Prescott is still not a certainty for Sunday night's game against the Vikings as of this writing with his calf injury. The Vikings are a team that no one, including themselves, can figure out just yet. Kirk Cousins is an overrated quarterback, their defense is okay, their offense has produced but they just can't win against the good teams. Dallas is a good team with a defense that is creating turnovers. The Cowboys will handle the Vikings in a close game, 35-27.
