How did our cappers fare in another crazy week of the NFL? It's time to do our weekly grades.

Stay on top of the latest line movement with our NFL Picks: Week 9 Odds Report.

Jason Lake

What NFL picks did Jason fancy this past weekend? Well, he was on Buffalo (+12.5), New England (-7.5), and Green Bay (-9.5).

The Bills hang around with the Saints for a little while, but in the end Drew Brees and company ran away with it. The Patriots came back and took care of business, while the Packers were easy winners in their Sunday Night dismantling of Minnesota.

ATS Record: 20-16-1

Jordan Sharp

With his sports picks for Monday Night Football, Jordan was on Seattle to win comfortably over St. Louis, a very popular pick out there.

We figured they'd have a lot of trouble scoring the ball, but the Rams' defense came to play. The home team even had a chance to win the game straight up, only to fall short at the goal-line. St. Louis easily covered the 10.5 points though.

ATS Record: 3-5

Joe Freda

Joe gravitated towards total plays again for the most part in Week 8. He took the UNDER 39.5 in the Kansas City/Cleveland game and the UNDER 40.5 in the Oakland/Pittsburgh matchup.

He was oh so close to sweeping the board with his two plays. The Chiefs/Browns went over by a half-point, which would have made it 2-0 with the Steelers/Raiders game ending at a total of 39. It's hard to be too upset with a split, however.

ATS Record: 3-6-2 

Steven Suarez

I was on four picks this week, starting with Tampa Bay at home to Carolina. I thought there was a chance the Buccaneers would show up and make things interesting on Thursday, but that didn't go well at all.

On Sunday, I was on Detroit (-3), Denver (-12), and the New York Giants (+6). The Lions won straight up but didn't cover the NFL odds, while the Broncos and Giants came through to give me a 2-2 split for Week 8.

ATS Record: 7-5

David Lawrence: 

The one selection for David this week was Arizona (-1) at home to Atlanta. It ended up being an easy winner, as Andre Ellington ran extremely well and the Cardinals defense kept Matt Ryan and the banged up Falcons offense at bay.

ATS Record: 4-7-1 

Doug Upstone 

Things started off very well for Doug, as he nailed his San Francisco (-16.5) pick. They absolutely murdered Jacksonville in London. Later in the day, Doug took the New York Jets at +6.5 against Cincinnati, but the Bengals put forth their best effort of the season and blitzed Rex Ryan's team in a 49-9 victory.

ATS Record: 6-7 

Steve Merrill

Steve dished out another play of the week and it came in that same Bengals/Jets game. However, Steve took Cincinnati and that ended up being one of the most cakewalk ATS wins of the week. Andy Dalton finished with 325 yards and five touchdown passes, four of which were caught by Marvin Jones.

ATS Record: 4-1
