Week 8 began with a domed stadium as the game site, so no reason to publish before Saturday. We do have some interesting situations, with the tropical storm/hurricane coming up the coast, so keep an eye on the games in East Rutherford, Philly, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Chicago, and Nashville. Anythehoo, here's all the forecasts as of publication time.

As I noted above, Hurricane Sandy is moving up the eastern coast of the USA, and we can expect wind and rain to hit the eastern part of the country on Sunday. Not much we can do about it, except plan for troubles in the passing attacks of the games in the path of the storm. I don't see the effects being so dramatic as we move westward, but all the early games not being played in dome (Detroit) will be affected. And since that forms the bulk of the contests we care about in week 8, we are all in the same boat, so to speak. Nothing to worry about with the Pats and Rams, as they have jumped across the pond to play in jolly ol' England, which we expect to be rainy and chilly. So, to wrap up, play your best players, and realize everyone is essentially in the same situation.
