NFL Week 8 Preview

By on October 25th, 2013

For one of Florida's NFL teams, week eight of the season is already in the books.

The other two will try to fare better than the first.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers hosted the Carolina Panthers for Thursday Night Football and lost 31-13. Tampa dropped to 0-7 for the season in a game dominated by the Panthers and even more so by Bucs fans' disdain for head coach Greg Schiano.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are going coast-to-coast to play the San Francisco 49ers in Wembley Stadium for the league's second game in London. The Jags are still looking for their first win of the season, and while the spread isn't 19.5 or 28 points, a win looks unlikely as the 49ers are favored by three scores.

Jacksonville has never played outside of the United States; the 49ers are playing their third international regular-season game in franchise history. San Francisco is 1-1 in those games.

In the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the Miami Dolphins are taking on the AFC East division-leading New England Patriots. Miami looks to stop a three-game losing streak while New England is looking to bounce back following an overtime loss to the New York Jets last weekend.

The Dolphins have lost six straight against the Pats, and haven't won in New England since September 21, 2008. The Patriots were without franchise quarterback Tom Brady in that game; Brady is undefeated at home against Miami.

Greg Schiano, Buccaneers Head Coach: “You can sit there and cry about it…”

Tom Brady, Patriots Quarterback: “They [the Dolphins] have been good all year…”
