NFL Week 8 picks

Where is Beck's pass going?

Ryan Fitzpatrick and his new contract extension will take on the Washington Redskins this Sunday in Toronto. Washington has lost two straight and three of its last four amid a QB switch from Rex Grossman to Jon Beck while the Bills are fresh off a bye week.

The Bills won both preseason contests at the Rogers Centre but are 0-3 in regular season games up north, and that’s almost something I’ve proud of. I always want the Bills to be successful, but I also don’t want Toronto to get any ideas about poaching our team.

Regardless of how long Fitzpatrick and Beck have known each other, I’m still going to believe that Beck is not an NFL quarterback until he proves otherwise. Give me the Bills.
