Week 8 of the NFL has not disappointed, with several games coming down to last second field goals or drives. The season is pretty much at the halfway point but it is far from decided as several divisions continue to be very close. Here are the results and much more on Week 8:
Vikings 19 – 9 Redskins
The Vikings had just 19 points against the Redskins but that was enough for a win. Minnesota is now 6 – 2 in the season, one game behind the Packers for the top of the division. Washington dropped to 1 – 7, last in the NFC East.
Seahawks 27 – 20 Falcons
The Seahawks recovered from their loss against the Ravens with a big win against the Falcons. The disappointing season continues for Atlanta, which has only won one game in the season. The win keeps the Seahawks in the race for the division, which has three teams with positive records.
Lions 31 – 26 Giants
The Lions jumped to a 14 – 0 lead early in the game and held on to improve to 3 – 3 – 1 in the season. The Giants are now 2 – 6 in the season but not completely out of the division due to the records from the Eagles and the Cowboys.
Chargers 17 – 16 Bears
The Bears opened the game with a small lead but the Chargers fought back in the fourth quarter to take a one point victory. The loss drops the Bears to 3 – 4 while the Chargers are now 3 – 5 in the season.
Jaguars 29 – 15 Jets
The Jets were once again held to a low score, dropping to 1 – 6 in the season. The Jaguars improved to 4 – 4, which keeps them in the race for the division.
Rams 24 – 10 Bengals
The Rams offense saw a huge performance from Cooper Kupp, who ended the game with seven receptions for 220 yards and a touchdown. The Bengals are now 0 – 8 in the season.
Eagles 31 – 13 Bills
The Eagles bounced back from their two previous losses by winning against the Bills. The Eagles are now close to the top of the NFC East, which is currently led by Dallas. The loss distances the Bills from the Patriots, who are still undefeated after eight weeks.
Titans 27 – 23 Buccaneers

Patriots 27 – 13 Browns
The Patriots remain undefeated after another impressive win. This time it was against the Browns, who are now 2 – 5 in the season.
Packers 31 – 24 Chiefs
