NFL Picks And Predictions, Week 8: Denver Broncos Losing The Experts' Picks

The Denver Broncos aren't getting much love from the talking head experts this week for their game against the Detroit Lions. Over at ESPN, eight of the network's 10 pickers have selected the Lions to win the game. Only Chris Mortensen selected the Broncos. And somewhat amusingly, Merril Hoge has no pick in this week. Maybe Tim Tebow's scared him.

Over at CBS Sports, all five experts there have picked the Lions in a straight toss-up, but things change a bit when they pick against the line. The Lions are favored by 3-1/2 points, which makes two of the guys to change their selections to the Broncos. However, that could just mean the Lions win by a point or two on a field goal.

Fox Sports' Pete Schrager has the Broncos pulling off the upset against the Lions, 26-21. Schrager doesn't care whether it's Matthew Stafford or Shaun Hill for the Lions; he's a Tebow Time kind of guy and is looking for that to prove the difference once again.
