5 NFL Teams That Will Definitely Lose In Week 8

Each week here at Rant Sports we have a list of five NFL teams that will definitely lose in order to help you with your suicide pools. Obviously nobody's perfect, so take this list with a grain of salt, but there are several prime candidates this week when choosing your suicide pick.

Last week I struggled to pick just one (I settled on the Green Bay Packers after one of my competitors talked me out of taking the Denver Broncos; thanks, Eric Duddy). Had I been the one to write this article last week (it rotates), I would have put the Broncos on this list of five. In addition to getting the Broncos wrong, I would have been wrong on the Miami Dolphins, as well. Silly me for thinking they would beat the Buffalo Bills at home after a bye. Along with the Packers, I would have also got the San Francisco 49’ers and Kansas City Chiefs correct for a meager three out of five. That’s not going to happen this week, though; I’m going five for five baby. Although I could live with four out of five.

The following five teams will all lose their Week 8 contests. Enjoy the show.

Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars will lose in Week 8? Say it ain't so? I thought all of five minutes on making a case that the Jags could win here. You know the best argument I came up with? That maybe the long plane ride to London will effect their opponent, the 49ers, more than them. If someone can come up with a better case than that, then please enlighten me.

Buffalo Bills

Could E.J. Manuel possibly come back for Bills in their Week 8 contest against the New Orleans Saints? I don't think it would matter anyway. The Bills aren't terrible, but playing in New Orleans after a Saints bye is a tough task for anyone, especially for a team with a so-so secondary that will probably be picked apart by Drew Bress. Let us not forget that the Saints have been stewing for two weeks about their last-second loss to the New England Patriots. Bad spot for the Bills.

Washington Redskins

The Washington Redskins showed some life in a 45-41 victory over the Chicago Bears. I'll give credit where its due, but that life could be drained pretty quickly by a pissed off Broncos team. If Josh McCown can throw on the crappy Redskins' secondary, then what is Peyton Manning going to do?

Minnesota Vikings

This past Monday was the first time I got a good look at this Minnesota Vikings team. Needless to say, I was switching the channel to WWE Raw more than normal. From what I saw, it's safe to assume that the Vikings aren't very good at the game of football. Whenever I looked up from my computer screen, I basically saw Josh Freeman missing every receiver by 83 miles. The only way the Vikings can beat the Packers this Sunday Night is to have one of those big Adrian Peterson games; only thing is the Packers are in the top five of rush defenses of the league. I'd like to say this will be the last time the Vikings are on primetime, but in a few weeks they'll be on Thursday Night against the Redskins. Where's Seinfeld when I need it?

St. Louis Rams

Oh, the poor St. Louis Rams. Sam Bradford is out for the season with a torn ACL and now they'll have to feed Kellen Clemens or some other bum to the Seattle Seahawks. We all know the Seahawks are pretty much unbeatable at home, but they've proved this year that you can trust them on the road, too. I would have given the Rams a punchers chance with Bradford, but without? Looks like I'll be watching a good amount of WWE Raw this Monday.
