Welcome back to the eighth edition of the extravagant PSF NFL Weekly Pick’em. Week 7 was an absolute week full of fun for most of our writers, and they’ll look to continue the stretch run as we head into Week 8 and beyond. We learned a lot in Week 7, including how bad the NFC West is, how great the LA Rams are, and the Chiefs once again showcased their dominance on the national stage with a blowout win against the Bengals. It’s starting to become the norm of this 2018 NFL season.
The PSF NFL pick’em crew is in its second season, with a few new faces, a new indefinite leader, and some of your favorite pickers. Without further ado, let’s meet everyone on the crew. Be sure to check them out on twitter and give everybody a follow. They’re genuinely great people and are worth a follow.
