Welcome to the Monday Night Showdown Slate for NFL Week 8!

Once again, we get a NFC East team in prime time. At least the opponent is good. The Buccaneers are playing like one of the best teams in the NFL right now. The Buccaneers have scored the most points in the NFL through the first seven weeks and the defense has been excellent. The Buccaneers have won five of their last six games, while the Giants have one win and blew a lead against the Eagles last week.

Before we start, remember, these showdown slates are similar to lottery tickets. At times the chalk hits and everyone shares in the prizes, but more often than not, you need that random, dart-throw to hit in order to claim that top prize, so make sure you play responsibly....
