Week 8 kicked off last night with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers pulling off a 36-17 upset win over the Minnesota Vikings.

Looking ahead to some of the standout games in Week 8 now and there is some great action in store for fans on Sunday.

The NFL comes back to London as the New England Patriots meet the St.Louis Rams at Wembley Stadium in sixth annual the International Series Game. Another must see game takes place in Dallas as the Cowboys take on the New York Giants in a crucial NFC East encounter.

Those are just some of the standout games to see this week as the season moves toward the half-way stage.

So without further ado, here are my picks for Week 8.
