NFL Week 10 Predictions

NFL Teams

Indianapolis Colts @ Jacksonville Jaguars

The Colts were my preseason wildcard pick for the playoffs because of a fairly easy schedule and my boy Andrew Luck.  Jacksonville historically is a tough out at home during primetime games, but they don’t have the talent and the Colts have all the momentum.

Pick: Colts

New York Giants @ Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals have been better on the road than at home.  Although they have the potential to shock a better team, the Giants aren’t ones to usually get caught looking ahead.  A loss last week will provide increased focus for the G-men.

Pick: Giants

Tennessee Titans @ Miami Dolphins

The Titans got embarrassed last week by the Bears.  We could see Jake Locker and Ryan Tannehill square off, but won’t know for sure until kickoff.  The Dolphins play well at home and have been more consistent as of late.

Pick: Dolphins

Detroit Lions @ Minnesota Vikings

Matt Stafford seems to be exiting his slump which is good news for Lions fans.  On the other hand Christian Ponder started the season on fire and has really struggled lately.  In a game that likely will come down to the last 2 possessions, I’ll still take Stafford to make the necessary plays.  It doesn’t help the Vikings that all world receiver Percy Harvin might not play either.

Pick: Lions

Buffalo Bills @ New England Patriots

Anything can happen in football, but the Patriots beating the Bills at Gillette Stadium coming off a bye week is the easiest pick of the week.

Pick: Patriots

Atlanta Falcons @ New Orleans Saints

When Michael Vick had even 1.5 seconds to throw, he was finding open receivers against the Saints.  Matt Ryan will exploit his matchup advantages in the secondary. Moreover, the Falcons won’t be scared to run the ball  into the heart of the Saints defense.

Pick: Falcons

San Diego Chargers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Chargers offense isn’t what it used to be, and in actual fact the Bucs offense is playing much better.  Travelling across the country never bodes well for the Chargers.

Pick: Bucs

Denver Broncos @ Carolina Panthers

The Panthers are a sneaky upset pick this week.  Think about taking them with the points, but straight up, go with Denver.

Pick: Broncos

Oakland Raiders @ Baltimore Ravens

Joe Flacco and Ray Rice are the new faces of the franchise in Baltimore.  The Raiders defense is awful and Carson Palmer will be missing his top two threats in the backfield.

Pick: Ravens

New York Jets @ Seattle Seahawks

I expect the Jets to play inspired football after Rex Ryan was voted the most overrated coach by NFL players.  Seattle rarely loses at home though and I can’t see Mark Sanchez making the necessary plays to help the Jets win in such a hostile environment.

*A bad weather game in Seattle screams Tim Tebow.

Pick: Seahawks

Dallas Cowboys @ Philadelphia Eagles

Unless the Philadelphia Eagles offensive line improves exponentially this week, they don’t stand a chance.  Rob Ryan knows how to dial up zone blitzes and with Todd Heremans likely out for the Eagles I can actually see their line playing worse.

Pick: Cowboys

St. Louis Rams @ San Francisco 49ers

The Rams long term prospects are very solid with the gluttony of draft picks they have from the RGIII trade.  That being said, the 49ers are simply better in all phases right now.

Pick: 49ers

Houston Texans @ Chicago Bears

What a treat for Sunday Night Football.  The Texans defense is better than the Bears offense.  The Bears defense is better than the Texans offense, but it’s close.

Pick: Texans

Kansas City Chiefs @ Pittsburgh Steelers

Ya, OK.

Pick: Steelers

Season Record: 82-50
