Nfl Scores Week 8
Offensive spotlight: After a rocky first start back from his scary head injury, Tua Tagovailoa may very well have had the best game of his career. He finished 29-of-36 for 382 yards and three scores. He was under pressure on only six snaps but was particularly impressive, as he went 2-of-3 for 50 yards and added an 18-yard scramble on his pressured dropbacks.

Defensive spotlight: The Saints' defensive line woke up in this game after seven weeks of underachieving. Multiple players tallied more than one pressure, and David Onyemata had a pass-rush win rate of 30.8% on first review.
Offensive spotlight: Henry racked up 190 yards after contact, showcasing his bruising rushing style. Henry finished with a pending 86.0 rushing grade on 32 carries, including 11 first-down runs, 219 yards and two scores.
4a. Imagine if BB got to coach every week against the Jets, a franchise he loathes and resigned his head coaching post with after one day in 2000. He's now beaten the NYJ 13 times in a row, New England's last loss to them occurring in 2015.
7. Broncos RB Latavius Murray rushed for the game-winning touchdown at Wembley Stadium four weeks after scoring in Tottenham Stadium as a member of the New Orleans Saints. He became the first player to run for touchdowns in London while with different teams in the same season.
17. Something had to give, and it wasn't the Buffalo Bills. They ran their record following the bye week to 6-0 under coach Sean McDermott with Sunday night's 27-17 defeat of the Green Bay Packers.
22a. Henry rushed for 219 yards and a pair of scores in the win over Houston. His six career games with at least 200 rushing yards and multiple TDs are the most in the Super Bowl era (since 1966) and twice as many as anyone else. Four of those efforts have come against the Texans.
30. How was Tom Brady's week? Thursday, he suffered his first three-game losing streak since 2002, a stretch that spanned a record 302 consecutive starts. Joe Montana's 155-game streak without a "3L" is next best. TB12 was also sacked for the 556th time in his career and surpassed Ben Roethlisberger for the most ever suffered in the NFL. The next day, Brady and wife Gisele Bündchen announced their divorce.
Quarterback Andy Dalton, named the team's starter earlier in the week, was 22 for 30 for 229 yards with two touchdowns and no turnovers. Tight end Taysom Hill was a weapon running the ball with 10 carries for 61 yards and rookie receivers Chris Olave and Rashid Shaheed added five and three receptions for a combined 90 yards. The Saints were seven of 12 on third down and possessed the ball for nearly 35 minutes.
The week wraps up with an AFC North battle of Ohio as the Cincinnati Bengals (4-3) hit the road for a Halloween night matchup with the Cleveland Browns (2-5) Monday.
12:08 P.M. ET, SATURDAY, OCT. 29: The Broncos announced Saturday morning that Russell Wilson will, in fact, be their starting quarterback for Sunday's game in London against the Jaguars. There were no moves to the betting numbers as it was assumed early in the week that Wilson (hamstring) would be returning from a one-game absence. As of Saturday morning, the Jags are 2.5-point favorites and the total is set at 40.5. DraftKings is reporting "Pros-vs-Joes" betting action with 72% of the bets on the Jags but 52% of the money wagered on the Broncos.
10:51 A.M. ET, TUESDAY, OCT. 25: Early week action is on the underdog Panthers coming off their impressive 21-3 win over the Buccaneers in Week 7.

8:30 P.M. ET, SUNDAY, OCT. 23: Wild times in the NFC South see the Falcons opening as 6.5-point home chalk to Carolina in Week 8. Atlanta is coming off a one-sided loss to Cincinnati while the Panthers are coming off one of the biggest upsets of the season, knocking off the Bucs 21-3 as 13-point underdogs. Early money has this spread down to Atlanta -6 at some online markets while the total sits at 41 points. Carolina RB Chuba Hubbard left Week 7 with an ankle injury, leaving this rushing corps down to D'Onta Foreman after trading away Christian McCaffrey last week.
7:30 A.M. ET, SUNDAY, OCT 30: This spread has come up back to double digits after sliding as low as Dallas -9 this week. As of Sunday morning, the Cowboys are as big as -10.5 at select books. Dallas will be without RB Ezekiel Elliott but will have star defender Micah Parsons on the field as well as TE Dalton Schultz. DraftKings sportsbooks are reporting 63% of bets on the Bears as big underdogs while 62% of the money is laying the points with the home team. This total is sitting between 42 and 43 points.
9:00 A.M. ET, THURSDAY, OCT. 27: With Dallas missing RB Ezekiel Elliott for Week 8, some books have ticked down as low as Cowboys -9 after this game opened as big as -10. Covers Consensus shows 56% of picks backing the Bears, playing on a short week after their upset at New England on Monday. This total is sitting at 42.5 points.
7:30 A.M. ET, SUNDAY, OCT 30: After the initial line move late last Sunday, bumping Minnesota from -5.5 to -3.5, this spread has stayed stable for most of the week. Here on game day, the Vikings are available between -3 and -4. Arizona will not have RB James Connor for this road game, but CB Byron Murphy is expected to play on defense.

The total has climbed from 47.5 to 48 points.
9:15 A.M. ET, WEDNESDAY, OCT. 26: Early play has been on New Orleans as a home underdog, trimming Las Vegas from -2.5 to as low as -1 at some respected online shops. That goes against public play, with 68% of picks on the Raiders. Mid-week injury reports for NOLA will likely have a say in where this spread ends up, as the Saints are still dealing with ailments to a number of skill positions.
7:45 A.M. ET, SUNDAY, OCT 30: The Patriots have been the popular pick among sharp bettors this week, who jumped on New England once the team sided with QB Mac Jones for Week 8.

DraftKings sportsbooks are reporting a split in ticket count versus handle, with 63% of bets backing the Jets but 68% of money siding the the Pats.

According to DraftKings sportsbooks, 55% of bets and 64% of handle is banking on the home team to cover this lofty spread. The total is sitting at 43 points.
2:31 P.M. ET, MONDAY, OCT. 24: The Steelers looked awful on offense in their 16-10 loss in Miami on Sunday Night Football, meanwhile the Eagles come into this Week 8 matchup off a bye week and still sit unbeaten (6-0 SU, 4-2 ATS) at the top of the NFC East standings. Sportsbooks opened the pointspread for this matchup at Eagles -10.5 and this number lengthened to -11 on Monday morning. The total hit the boards at 44 and is down slightly to 43.5 after the terrible offensive performance by the Steelers.
12:15 P.M. ET, SATURDAY, OCT. 29: With Monday's news that Sam Ehlinger will be the Colts' starting quarterback for the remainder of the season, books adjusted the pointspread for Sunday's matchup with the Commanders from Colts -4 to -2.5. That number held steady for most of the week, until most books adjusted up to the key number of -3 on Saturday morning. This represents reverse line movement with BetMGM reporting 74% of the bets and 68% of the money on the Commanders, DraftKings showing 64% of the bets and 62% of the money on Washington, and many other books showing similar betting patterns.
2:46 P.M. ET, FRIDAY, OCT. 28: News broke Thursday night that Bengals' WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) will miss 4-6 weeks. At the time of the news the Bengals were 3.5-point favorites for their Monday Night Football game on the road at Cleveland, and the number quickly shortened to Cincy -3. The total is at 45 as of Friday afternoon, but that is a major weapon that will be missing from the arsenal of Joe Burrow and the Bengals offense.
The Canners held off a Nighthawks team that nearly upset York Catholic a week ago. Biglerville led Hanover 16-14 at halftime and 23-14 entering the fourth. The Canners gave up a score in the fourth quarter but held off the Nighthawks.
Fairfield 27, York County Tech 7: The Green Knights improved to 2-5 and won for the first time since Week 4. York Tech's Anthony Torres rushed for over 200 yards on 33 carries but the Spartans couldn't establish a passing game. Fairfield got two passing scores from Wyatt Kuhn.
The Wake Forest Demon Deacons essentially received consecutive bye weeks. Wake Forest put Army (1-4) away early and then enjoyed its actual rest period in Week 7. With a few top-15 teams dropping in the college football rankings, Wake Forest moves up a spot before facing a Boston College Eagles squad that has really struggled to put up a fight against quality opponents this season.
This line has steamed from Colts -6 to this number only in part because Frank Reich made the switch from Matt Ryan to Sam Ehlinger. Washington scored 23 with Taylor Heinicke last week after putting up 8, 10, 17, 12 in the previous four games with Carson Wentz. 041b061a72
