NFL Week 8 picks: Patriots overwhelming pick to beat Rams

The Internet has spoken and the Rams have no shot against the Patriots.


Even the most optimistic St. Louis Rams fan probably shouldn't be surprised at the lack of love his or her team is receiving from NFL experts across the Web for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots.

The New England Patriots are unanimous picks to win Sunday over the Rams by the 8-man panel at CBS Sports, the 12-man panel at ESPN and by all three NFL experts at Yahoo! Sports. The Rams do, however, get some love against the spread by four of the eight CBS experts: Clark Judge, Jason La Canfora, Will Brinson and Ryan Wilson all like the Rams to cover the 7.5 points New England is favored by.

CBS' Pete Prisco picks the Patriots to win, 33-17:

"The Rams struggled against Aaron Rodgers last week. Now they have to deal with Tom Brady. The Patriots, for all their problems, are first in the league in offense. That will show up here. Look for Tom Brady to continue where Rodgers left off last week."

While technically a home game for the Rams, Sunday's game takes place at Wembley Stadium in London, England. Local kickoff is set for noon and the game will be televised by CBS.
