The Hoser's NFL Picks, 2011 Week Eight: NFL picks that have rediscovered our love of Old Tom's Egg Nog (14% alcohol by volume).

Welcome to Week Eight of the Hoser's NFL Picks, 2011 Edition, where we'll be elbow-deep in pumpkin guts during the late games. Nothing beats smells like rotting fruit at work for a week.

The Hoser stumbled again this week, posting just a 6-7 record against the spread and 8-5 straight up. We missed the Trifecta (thanks for sucking, Washington), but we hit our Lock of the Week for a seventh straight week, putting us up $230 for the week and pushing us back over the $3,000 mark for the year.

Remember: these picks are just for fun. Using them to wager money is advisable as having Michael Young man first base for your church-league softball team.

Indianapolis (+9) at TENNESSEE (44): Titans 24, Colts 16.
Jacksonville (+9.5) at HOUSTON (40.5): Texans 31, Jaguars 14.

Miami (+10) at NEW YORK GIANTS (42): Giants 27, Dolphins 10.
Washington (+4) at BUFFALO (45): Bills 26, Racists 20.
Detroit (+3) at DENVER (41.5): Lions 21, Broncos 20.

Not like it's a big loss, but I'm busy with pumpkins and a huge collection of sports cards I bought a couple days ago, so just the picks this week.

I don't think I've ever hit seven Locks in a row, much less been unblemished this late in the season. It was a coin flip between Dallas and New England, so I went with the one without Tony Romo.

Of course it matters. You can be especially funny next week. Are you carving sports-themed pumpkins?
