NFL Week 10 | Picks & Predictions

Fresh off a much better 8-6 week improving my overall record to 87-49, I am feeling good coming into this week. The Patriots are rolling – can they beat Cleveland fresh off a beat down of Cincinnati? Is Patrick Mahomes going to get it on track? Can Detroit get their first win over Pittsburgh? How good are the Rams? I will answer all of these questions and more. All you need to do is keep on reading. As usual, comment at the bottom of this page and let me know what you think of my picks and let me know what games you would pick different. Catch y’all on the flip side.

Thursday Night Game

How Much Can An NFL Fan Read Into The Ravens' Blowout Win? | FiveThirtyEight

Baltimore (6-2) at Miami (2-7)

Miami sucks. Even with their impressive win over the 1-7 Texans (sarcasm) I can’t pick them to beat Baltimore. If you have any offensive players on Baltimore on your fantasy team, start them. Ravens roll.

Winner: Ravens 31-9

Sunday Afternoon Games

Cowboys vs. Falcons: Preview, score prediction for Week 10

Atlanta (4-4) at Dallas (6-2)

Dallas got embarrassed at home last week. They will rebound this week. Dallas thumps Atlanta who should have lost the Trevor Simien (might have spelled his name wrong but it don’t matter) Saints. Dallas all day.

Winner: Dallas 34-14

Colts vs. Jaguars score: Jonathan Taylor sets franchise rushing record in  Indy's playoff-clinching victory - CBSSports.com

Jacksonville (2-6) at Indianapolis (4-5)

Jonathan Taylor has been ballin’! Yes, Jacksonville beat the Bills last week but I’m not banking on them pulling off two upsets in a row. Taylor continues his great season and Jacksonville goes back to what they do best, losing.

Winner: Colts 26-7

Recap: Patriots beat Browns 27-13, remain undefeated - Pats Pulpit

Cleveland (5-4) at New England (5-4)

New England is on a winning streak and the Browns just beat the hell out of the Bengals. New England is going to have to stop the run this week and I am banking on their defense to come up with a few turnovers to help Mac Jones and the Patriots offense get good field position and short scoring drives. Pats win a great game and keep climbing up the AFC.

Winner: Pats 27-23

Week 1 Recap: New York Jets vs Buffalo Bills - Prime Time Sports Talk

Buffalo (5-3) at New York Jets (2-6)

Jets and the Bills. Two teams I despise. But if you have read these articles throughout the year, I will never pick the Jets and that won’t change now. It wouldn’t hurt my feelings if they did actually win, but I just won’t pick them. I hope they both lose. But anyway…..

Winner: Bills 27-17

Najee Harris updates: How did Steelers rookie RB perform in Week 2 of  preseason - DraftKings Nation

Detroit (0-8) at Pittsburgh (5-3)

As funny as it would be so I could make fun of all the Steelers fans I know to see them lose to the winless Lions, I’m not dumb enough to pick Detroit. If they do somehow win, I’ll happily take the loss. Harris runs wild as Pitt gets up early and runs the ball all over Detroit.

Winner: Steelers 24-7

Game Notes: Titans vs. Saints

New Orleans (5-3) at Tennessee

This is my toss up game. Heads Titans, tails Saints. It’s heads. Adrian Peterson, channel your inner 2010 (or close to it). Sorry Yvonne, I’m picking against your team again.

Winner: Titans 27-24

North & South Podcast: Breaking down the Wild Card win over the Washington  Football Team - Bucs Nation

Tampa Bay (6-2) at Washington

It’s funny. Washington took Tampa to the limit last year in the playoffs and now Tampa is 6-2 and Washington is 2-6. Well guess what. Tampa leaves 7-2 and Washington leaves 2-7. Ok byeeeeeee.

Winner: Bucs 26-13

Sunday Evening Games

Panthers news: Sam Darnold seeing ghosts again with pick-6 vs. Patriots

Carolina (4-5) at Arizona (8-1)

Sam Darnold is horrible. I don’t think the stench of playing for the Jets ever went away as he looked awful against New England last week. Arizona wins easily. Darnold will see ghosts again.

Winner: Arizona 31-13

Vikings at Chargers final score: Minnesota defense forces seven turnovers  in blowout road victory - CBSSports.com

Minnesota (3-5) at Los Angeles Chargers (5-3)

The poor Vikings. They seem to be in a position to win every week and then boom they lose. This week will be the same. They will keep this game close and then find a way to lose. Herbert goes off and the Chargers improve to 6-3.

Winner: Chargers 30-27

Cowboys vs. Broncos 2021 Week 9 game day live discussion IV - Blogging The  Boys

Philadelphia (3-5) at Denver (5-4)

I just don’t trust Philly. I know they took a really good Chargers team to the wire last week, but I just think Denver wins this game. They just beat up a very good Dallas team and I just can’t see them laying an egg against the Eagles. Broncos win.

Winner: Denver 20-10

Green Bay Packers hold off Seattle Seahawks to reach NFC championship game  - Los Angeles Times

Seattle (3-5) at Green Bay (7-2)

Whether it’s Aaron Rodgers playing or Jordan Love, I am picking Green Bay here. If it’s Rodgers – he’s going to come out playing pissed after missing last week or if it’s Jordan Love I expect them to feed RB Aaron Jones (pictured above). Seattle is still without QB Russell Wilson and I just trust Green Bay’s very underrated defense more than Seattle. Green Bay rebounds.

Winner: Packers 24-10

Week 5 Preview: Las Vegas Raiders vs. Kansas City Chiefs - Prime Time  Sports Talk

Kansas City (5-4) at Las Vegas (5-3)

I say this every week it seems. But one of these damn weeks Patrick Mahomes is going to put together one of his vintage games. For his and my fantasy team’s sake – he needs to. I will predict again he finally has that game against the Raiders. This is your last time Mahomes, don’t make me tell your wife.

Winner: Chiefs 34-26

Monday Night Football

One reason why the 49ers will — and will not — defeat the Rams on Saturday  Night Football - Niners Nation

Los Angeles Rams (7-2) at San Francisco (3-5)

This 49ers team has so much talent it’s bizarre to see them at 3-5. But after losing to Arizona when they didn’t have QB Kyler Murray and WR DeAndre Hopkins, there is no chance in hell I’m picking them against the Rams. I mean, let’s not overlook the fact the Rams are probably the best team in the NFL. Rams win and it almost is Trey Lance time in the Bay area.

Winner: Rams 27-13

Byes: Chicago, Cincinnati, Houston, New York Giants
