NFL Week 8 picks: Redskins vs. Steelers

Justin K. Aller

The Pittsburgh Steelers are the heavy favorites as per the analyst picks from major outlets.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are the heavy favorites entering Sunday's Week 8 matchup against the Washington Redskins, according to the selections from analysts at SB Nation, ESPN, CBS and Yahoo.

At SB Nation, Ryan Van Bibber believes that while there are still questions about the Steelers, their history against NFC opponents (winning nine straight contests against the conference at home) will bode well for Pittsburgh. He predicts the Steelers will beat Washington by a 10-point margin, 31-21.

Every analyst at CBSSports.com agrees with Van Bibber as they all have selected the Steelers to defeat the Redskins in their straight-up picks. That opinion is shared by the majority of analysts at ESPN as the majority also picked the Steelers to come out victorious against Washington (10 of 14 picked Pittsburgh).

At Yahoo!, two of their three analysts have picked the Steelers in addition to their users also picking the team, as well.
