Week 8 kicks off on Thursday night with the Buffalo Bills hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Both teams are coming off heartbreaking losses, as the Bills fell to the then-one-win Patriots while the Bucs also dropped a divisional game, losing a close one to the Falcons.

This match-up will pit two teams with .500 records or better against each other. If the Bills win, they can still catch up to the Dolphins in the AFC East and fend off the feisty Jets. If the Bucs win, they'll still be in the NFC South race.
