RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) – Only six games separate the leader, Robb, from 7th place. Will this be the week he falls from the top?

As always, feel free to play along at home.

Cosby Titans @ Manchester Lancers

Pick: Manchester Lancers

Lancers win big at home.

Miami Hurricanes @ Virginia Cavaliers

Pick: Miami Hurricanes

Miami is the safe pick, but don’t sleep on the Cavs in this game.

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets@ Virginia Tech Hokies

Pick: Virginia Tech Hokies

Virginia Tech is the safe pick, but don’t sleep on Georgia Tech in this game.

Baylor Bears @ Oklahoma Sooners

Pick: Oklahoma Sooners

Baylor is way overrated.

Delaware Blue Hens @ Richmond Spiders

Pick: Richmond Spiders

Delaware used to be a powerhouse…Used to be.

Minnesota Vikings @ Washington Redskins

Pick: Minnesota Vikings

Washington has yet to show me anything this season.

Miami Dolphins @ San Diego Chargers

Pick: San Diego Chargers

This might be the last winnable game to be played in San Diego. Stay classy.

Los Angeles Rams @ New York Jets

Pick: New York Jets

This game has tie written all over it.

Cosby Titans @ Manchester Lancers

Pick: Manchester Lancers

Last week Cosby almost defeated Manchester but I see the Lancers pulling away much sooner in the 4th Qtr this time.

Miami Hurricanes @ Virginia Cavaliers

Pick: Miami Hurricanes

This feels like a perfect game for the Cavaliers to be overlooked and pull off an upset but I’m going with The U.

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets@ Virginia Tech Hokies

Pick: Virginia Tech Hokies

Hokies in a blowout that sums it up for me.

Baylor Bears @ Oklahoma Sooners

Pick: Oklahoma Sooners

Baylor has suffered some tough losses the last two weeks to Texas and TCU and I see them dropping their 3rd straight game while Oklahoma will win their 7th straight game to stay on top the Big 12.

Delaware Blue Hens @ Richmond Spiders

Pick: Richmond Spiders

Tough loss for the Spiders against James Madison in a tight game at home but they bounce back against Delaware this week.

Minnesota Vikings @ Washington Redskins

Pick: Washington Redskins

Redskins are coming off a bye and their offense will need a good game plan against the Vikings defense. I think the Skins defense will get enough stops against the Vikings offense and Minnesota will drop their 4th straight game.

Miami Dolphins @ San Diego Chargers

Pick: San Diego Chargers

Looking forward to the Jay Ajayi and Melvin Gordon RB battle that will be overlooked but I see the Chargers defeating the Dolphins who will drop to 0-4 on the road this season.

Los Angeles Rams @ New York Jets

Pick: New York Jets

This game will be tough to watch but I will go with the Jets.

MitchMitch Carr, 8Sports Director (Last week – 5-3, Overall – 45-27)

Cosby Titans @ Manchester Lancers

Pick: Manchester Lancers

I think the Lancers knew they would see the Titans again the following week, and I think they went conservative. I expect Manchester to have its full game plan on display Friday.

Miami Hurricanes @ Virginia Cavaliers

Pick: Miami Hurricanes

Brad Kaaya showed his potential Saturday against Pitt. I think he’ll do so again in Charlottesville.

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets@ Virginia Tech Hokies

Pick: Virginia Tech Hokies

Georgia Tech is a scary match up for everyone but if you get a two-touchdown lead in the second half they are dead in the water. I think the Hokies will do just that. I expect it to be close.

Baylor Bears @ Oklahoma Sooners

Pick: Oklahoma Sooners

Baylor is actually not very good.

Delaware Blue Hens @ Richmond Spiders

Pick: Richmond Spiders

Delaware fired its coach earlier this season. The Blue Hens are in disarray.

Minnesota Vikings @ Washington Redskins

Pick: Washington Redskins

Speaking of disarray, the Vikings are breaking in a new offensive coordinator in the middle of the season. They are 0-3 since their bye week, and two of those losses include the Bears and Lions. Yikes. That defense is good, but that offense is baaaaad.

Miami Dolphins @ San Diego Chargers

Pick: San Diego Chargers

The Chargers’ record is misleading. That’s a good team, especially with Melvin Gordon finding his way.

Los Angeles Rams @ New York Jets

Pick: New York Jets

The Rams are headed for 7-9 or 6-10…it’s the Jeff Fisher way!

Kerri webKerri O’Brien, 8News Investigative Reporter (Last week – 6-2, Overall – 45-27)

Cosby Titans @ Manchester Lancers

Pick: Cosby Titans

Cosby gets revenge for last week  and wins.

Miami Hurricanes @ Virginia Cavaliers

Pick: Miami Hurricanes

RB Joseph Yearby will be too much for a UVA defense that is sometimes weak on stopping the run.

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets@ Virginia Tech Hokies

Pick: Virginia Tech Hokies

VA Tech is just a better team on offense, defense and special teams. And I just don’t see that Georgia Tech offense stopping Jerod Evans.

Baylor Bears @ Oklahoma Sooners

Pick: Oklahoma Sooners

Baylor is distracted by scandal, no focus.

Delaware Blue Hens @ Richmond Spiders

Pick: Richmond Spiders

No contest. The Spiders are the better team all the way around. The Blue Hens had a good win over Albany but that’s not enough to compete with UR.

Minnesota Vikings @ Washington Redskins

Pick: Washington Redskins

Sam Bradford is back to being the Sam Bradford Eagles fans have come to know and hate. He’s just not that good. In addition, the Vikings are still in turmoil over their sudden coach resignation. Redskins take advantage of it.

Miami Dolphins @ San Diego Chargers

Pick: Sab Diego Chargers

Struggling with this one a bit. Suddenly the Dolphins are winning but I think it’s more about the opponent than skills. I go San Diego.

Los Angeles Rams @ New York Jets

Pick: New York Jets

While the Jets are banged up, I think they can win this one!

will-12Will Armbruster, 8News Digital Producer (Last week – 4-4, Overall – 44-28)

Cosby Titans @ Manchester Lancers

Pick: Manchester

Don’t let Cosby’s 5-5 record fool you: This one will be a dog fight.

Miami Hurricanes @ Virginia Cavaliers

Pick: Miami

Virginia continues to make strides, but I see Miami pulling away by double digits early in the second half here.

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets@ Virginia Tech Hokies

Pick: Virginia Tech

Virginia Tech has overachieved this year and I think their strong season continues Saturday at home.

Baylor Bears @ Oklahoma Sooners

Pick: Oklahoma

This is a toss up, in my opinion, so give me the Sooners at home.

Delaware Blue Hens @ Richmond Spiders

Pick: Richmond

Let’s go Spiders!

Minnesota Vikings @ Washington Redskins

Pick: Vikings

I think a lot of people will be high on the Redskins this week after Minnesota’s head-scratching loss to the Lions, but I like the Vikings to rebound on Sunday.

Miami Dolphins @ San Diego Chargers

Pick: Chargers

No team — and no quarterback outside of Tom Brady — play better this time of year than the Chargers and Phillip Rivers.

Los Angeles Rams @ New York Jets

Pick: Jets

Yuck. I make this pick with very little confidence. I expect a turnover-riddled game that will be decided on the defensive end.
