Week 8 in the NFL saw eight teams held to 14 points or less, London’s annual game end in the biggest blowout of the week, and the league’s lone undefeated team remain that way with a convincing win. As for the TWIF panel, it was Gary Myers’ week, as the Daily News columnist finished 12-2 to take the weekly win and extend his lead over Ryan Ruocco in the yearly standings to three games.
