Hello everyone! Welcome to Week 8 of the NFL season.

Week 8 was filled with history. The most important timid (or perhaps the most covered) was Peyton Manning breaking the touchdown record. Manning has the most passing touchdowns in NFL history with 510, shattering Brett Favre’s record of 508. He also led the Broncos to a 42-17 victory.

Among other headlines:

The Cowboys keep on winning as they defeated the Giants 31-21. The Saints still skid after losing a close one to Detroit 24-23. Finally, the New York Jets lost to the New England Patriots 27-25.

I went 10-5, bringing my total to 67-39. The following is what I got right and wrong for Week 7.
